    We’ve praised new hosted forum startup Tangler on a number of occasions – most recently calling it the bleeding edge in new discussion board/forum startups. Apparently someone else likes it too. Someone in Turkey is willing to pay up to $1,500 to anyone who can “clone Tangler.” But don’t go too far – the listing also states “do not steal tangler.com… Read More

  • IBM: The End Of Advertising As We Know It

    IBM released an interesting new report earlier this week that predicts the end of advertising as we know it within 5 years. To quote IBM Traditional advertising players risk major revenue declines as budgets shift rapidly to new, interactive formats, which are expected to grow at nearly five times that of traditional advertising.

  • Pedal your way to a fully-charged laptop

    As someone who sits at home in front of a computer all day every day, I can — like Richard to Tommy in Tommy Boy — actually hear myself getting fatter. So the thought of sitting all day every day in an apparatus that forces me to expend energy in order to provide power to my lifeline to the outside world and device by which I earn money for food, shelter, and clothing is intriguing… Read More

  • 24 From 94, How Far We've Come

    http://www.collegehumor.com/moogaloop/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=1788161&fullscreen=1
    There’s a whole generation of people who don’t remember when the internet was exactly like this. I can still remember buying a 14.4k modem for something like $500 then having to download Trumpet Winsock to get net access under Windows 3.1. We’ve come a very long way. Imagine how todays… Read More

  • Cable Ruling May Provide Opportunities For Google, Startups

    The FCC may move to open up access to cable television on the basis that the big cable companies are too dominant, according to the NY Times. The move would lower the cost of entry to new content providers and forcibly provide access where this has been denied previously. There is also the possibility that the FCC may force cable providers to unbundle channels, allowing consumers to pick… Read More

  • Demonoid is dead, reincarnation imminent

    Another tracker bites the dust. This time it’s Demonoid. Demonoid was big, popular, and I’d bet Demonoid’s not going anywhere. The name might change, the server will absolutely change, but, as Wired says, "According to some reports, while the site is gone, the tracker appears to still be functioning and the downloading continues." And so the eternal struggle continues. Read More

  • Look at the pretty lights

    I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of light art. It’s just about the neatest thing out there in terms of non-traditional mediums of artwork. It also helps that they’re reenacting some Star Wars. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Read More

  • RIM gets pissy, sues LG


    RIM is once again suing another mobile phone manufacturer over something completely absurd and, well, asinine. Apparently people will mistake the Black Label line of smartphones from LG to RIM’s BlackBerry devices. It violates some trademark and is ‘confusingly similar’. Yeah, whatever you say, RIM.

  • Old Man Dvorak says 'the Google phone is doomed'

    Every industry needs an old, crotchety curmudgeon. We have the always-entertaining John C. Dvorak who’s lately seemed to be slowly slipping into senility. That’s okay, though. That’s okay. He’s our grandpa and we love him and you don’t just cut people out of your life because they’ve started going crazy. His latest outburst is against the Google-led… Read More

  • Flash Zune already sold, but doesn't work

    Zunerama forum’s n00b, eds, has acquired him/herself with a brand spankin’ new Zune before the Tuesday launch. That’s all well and good, but he/she can’t use said Zune 2 until the firmware is released on the 13th. What a bummer. Totally takes away all the fun of having it first if it won’t work, right? Oh, but what about the install CD? Yeah, I guess it… Read More

  • Blist Prepares Easy Web-Based Database Application

    I recently had the opportunity to see a demo of a product coming out in early 2008 called Blist (pronounced like “bliss” with a “t” at the end) that will take on DabbleDB and Trackvia by giving users the tools to easily create and manage databases online. Blist’s initial target demographic will be Excel users who need more functionality and are trying to make… Read More

  • Nokia's N81 sucks, Om Malik says so

    With the glaring, bright, intense exception of the iPhone, music phones have more or less been a failure. Many have tried, many have failed. In fact, it could be argued that the only reason the iPhone gets any iPod attention was because people already had iPods, ya know? But that’s a different story altogether. According to the esteemed Om Malik, that’s still the case. Om got… Read More

  • VOIS: An OTC Listed Social Network

    Boca Raton, Florida based VOIS Inc offers yet another social networking site but with one distinct difference: it’s traded on the OTC:BB. The site itself offers your usual array of social networking features: user profiles, blogs, groups, classifieds etc etc. Traffic to the site isn’t wonderful, but I’ve seen far worse as well, with vois.com tracking at around the 10,000 mark… Read More
