• AT&T Will Market iPhone To Business Users, Analysts Don't Want It

    AT&T, the company formerly known as Cingular, will in fact market the iPhone to business users, making Microsoft’s recent claims all the more relevant. If this seems dumb to you — because of the lack of third-party apps, non-replaceable battery and new, untested operating system — then it certainly seems dumb to many of those analysts we always read about. One of which… Read More

  • Yahoo Music To Add Music Lyrics Later Today

    Look for music Lyrics to be added for hundreds of thousands of songs to Yahoo music later today, the first time they will appear legally on the Internet. They are being provided through a partnership with Gracenote, which is best known for its technology to detect and block copyrighted songs on websites. The company has been working with labels for some time to aggregate rights to song… Read More

  • LoTR Online: I Just Wet My Pants

    I’m not a big MMO gamer, but I’ve been hoping and dreaming on LoTR Online since I was a baby in my mother’s womb. I actually have a boxed copy upstairs and I’m about to install it — I have to take some meetings and write for you people a bit before I do — but there’s something about being a dwarf in the Prancing Pony that gets me hot and bothered. The… Read More

  • Halo 3 Video Leaked: Not So Hot Looking

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?umid=59795 Halo 3 is the Xbox 360’s killer app for sure and now footage from the game has been leaked onto the Internet. If you can ignore the terrible, terrible background music, you’ll see a game that looks a hell of a lot like Halo 2. Maybe it’s just a really early build (or a fake), but I’m not really all that… Read More

  • Former Apple CFO Told To Pay Up – Big Time

    When the SEC is on your back and you’ve been backdating stock options, you’re kind of in a tight situation. So when former Apple Chief Financial Officer Fred Anderson was offered a deal to pay back $3.5 million bucks plus a $150,000 fine, you can bet your iPod he took it. The charges date back to 2001 when Anderson was working for Apple and was granted multiple stock options that… Read More

  • LG KS10: Phone With Google

    A while back, you may remember LG and Google announced some wacky partnership where LG would start releasing a series of phones called “Phones with Google,” which would feature some of Google’s applications pre-installed on the devices. Now the KS10 has emerged and this slider is looking incredibly loaded. Featuring Symbian 60 (It’s not a Nokia?!), HSDPA/WCDMA, a… Read More

The HAL-5 exoskeleton can now be rented for just $590 a month for the next year, basically allowing anyone who… Read More

  • Transmission 0.71 Released – Key Issues Fixed

    Mac OS X users have always gotten a bit of a shaft on decent Bit Torrent clients. There’s always Azureus, but it’s cluttered, slow, and a resource hog. And until the recent release of Bit Rocket, there wasn’t much else: except for Transmission. In the past, Transmission has been banned on almost every private Bit Torrent tracker on the net. Why’s that? Transmission used… Read More

  • Griffin AirDock iPod Dock: Now With Space Age "Remote-Controller"

    If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that the Griffin AirDock looks no better (nor any worse) than any of the 2.3 million iPod docks out there. In addition to syncing your iPod, charging the battery, and outputting all audio/video to an external device, the AirDock has an RF remote control. Did you hear that? A remote control, people! Through the magic of radio, the remote control… Read More

  • T-Mobile Launches USB Modem Reminiscent Of A Maxi-Pad

  • CastTV Raises $3.1 Million, Battles Google And AOL In Video Search

    San Francisco-based CastTV, a video search service that is yet to launch, announced a $3.1 million round of financing from Draper Fisher Jurvetson this morning. We first wrote about the company, which is led by husband and wife team Edwin Ong and Alex Vikati, last October. See our post and screenshots here.

  • HeadRoom Total BitHead Mobile Headphone Amp Hands On


    One of the greatest audio-related inventions of the last 20 years has been the portable headphone amp. If you’ve got butt-kickin’ headphones from companies like AKG, Grado, Etymotic, Sennheiser, Shure, or Ultimate Ears (to name a few), you should seriously listen up: HeadRoom’s Total BitHead (just reduced to $149!) beefs up the sound from any audio source in a way that used… Read More

  • Yapta Will Be Awesome For Heavy Travelers

    I don’t know what it is about Seattle and travel startups, but newcomer Yapta now joins Farecast and TripHub, two other startups we’ve been tracking from that cold, rainy place. I saw a pre-launch demo of the company yesterday from co-founder and CEO Tom Romary. The site, which should launch around May 15, helps users find deals on flights and (later this year) hotels. Yapta is… Read More

  • PhotoBucket Back on MySpace (I Want To Know The Backstory)

    A simple blog post on Photobucket tells us that the war is over – PhotoBucket videos are now allowed on MySpace again after a two week ban. But the interesting part of this story is what I don’t know yet – who blinked first and why. I’ve asked Photobucket if they made any concessions to MySpace and got back a long but essentially content-free reply that boiled down… Read More

  • MySpace Launches Site For U.S. Spanish Speakers

    More than 28 million people who live in the U.S. speak Spanish as their first language (U.S. Census, 2000). They now have their very own version of MySpace at latino.myspace.com. Before today, Internet users in the U.S., the UK, Japan, France, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Canada, New Zealand and Mexico had access to localized versions of MySpace.

  • Sidekick 3 Review: Are You There, God? It's Me, Austin

    Sorry we’re posting so many Sidekick videos, but I visited my own SK iD review and saw some related video along with some very pithy and cogent commentary (“do you have to activate it 2 use it”). This is one of the standouts, friends, and from now on all of CG video will be in this vein. We will bring you the shiniest, happiest gadgets fresh from the puppy fields of Boogie… Read More

  • JS-Kit: Web 2.0 For Lazy People

    We first covered JS-Kit last November when we talked about their quick embed code that lets you add comments to any site where JavaScript is accepted. Since then, JS-Kit has been creating more widgets making adding user interaction to any site dead simple (2 lines of code per widget). JS-Kit has also grown from a one-man-show into a full company after adding 5 of the 12 engineers from… Read More
