• TiVo, Rhapsody partnership: Now your TiVo does music

    Fancy listening to music on your TiVo? The company today is expected to announce a deal with Real’s Rhapsody to allow its users to sign up (for $13 per month) and listen to the more than 3.5 million songs right from the DVR. Further details are still sketchy—I bet TiVo’s not too happy that word of this partnership leaked, considering there’s supposed to be an event… Read More

  • BitTorrent DNA: Torrenting No Longer A Dirty Word

    BitTorrent has been getting somewhat of a bad rap. Although BitTorrent itself sells copyrighted content over its P2P file sharing protocol, the service has become better known for less than legal downloads from sites like “The Pirate Bay”. It has been particularly popular for pirating because it easily distributes the cost of transmitting files across the network of users… Read More

  • No More Catalogs, Please

(The site contacts companies sending out the catalogs for you). Read More

  • More Information On Google's Social Networking Plans

    Business Week has a long article expanding on the Google Social Nework Platform story we wrote about last month. Key facts from the article: Orkut is 1/4 the size of MySpace (Comscore shows a much closer race), but they’ve recently taken the lead in the Asia/Pacific region. Orkut is also very strong in Latin America, with double the traffic of MySpace and Facebook combined. Business… Read More

  • FotoFlexer Continues To Innovate; People Love It

    FotoFlexer, which we first covered in August, continues to be my favorite online photo editing tool out of a batch of…many. Most of the tools are for creating fun changes to photos (see my previous post on them for an overview), and users can easily pull and push photos to social networks like Facebook, MySpace and Flickr. But it’s also a serious editing tool (it supports layers… Read More

  • PayPerPost Launches Random New Service. They're Up To Something, I'm Sure.

    We heard about a new service from PayPerPost today, and while it’s a little boring, there is nothing about it that I can take particular issue with at first blush (we often find things to criticize with PayPerPost – our past posts are here). Like the popular site TinyURL, URLbrief lets people exchange a long, difficult to communicate URL for a short one. They’ve added a… Read More

  • Cannucks getting iPhone this month, eh? (Sorry.)

    Beta’s got it that Canadia (yes, I spelled that right) is finally poised to get the iPhone. Rogers is set as the carrier, and the device will sell for $799 Canadian, which is, like, close to $799 American. The question is, why so much? Since our domestic flavor of the iPhone has dropped to a palatable level, why is Apple giving the screw to the beer-drinking, non-gun-owning neighbors to… Read More

    Highly popular Industrial Rock Band Nine Inch Nails have announced that as of today they are free agents, and will not be using the services of a record company in the future. Nine Inch Nail’s Trent Reznor wrote on the NIN site that the writing is on the wall for the traditional music distribution model, saying that the music business has radically mutated from one thing to something… Read More

  • Facebook Mass Rejects All fbFund Applicants And Starts Over

    When Facebook announced fbFund, a new program to give grants to Facebook application developers, at TechCrunch40, they clearly hadn’t thought through all the logistics of the program. Applicants were urged to simply email in their ideas for funding – see the video here. Now they’ve rethought that process. I can imagine they’ve been inundated with applications, which may… Read More

    Microblogging service Twitter, long questioned over its lack of an apparent business plan, is testing text footer ads below Tweets. This Is Going To Be Big captured the following image:
    The format is a one line tip directly below the Tweet. The message might be flattering to CNet’s Caroline McCarthy, but it’s a fair guess that this is a test message and that in future it might… Read More
