• ProfileBuilder: Manage Your Profile, Not Accounts

    With a plethora of social networks for everyone from knitters to dog lovers, managing our increasing number of long tail profiles is a huge pain. The problem of managing a fragmented identity has been attacked two ways: creating a new master account (OpenID), aggregating identity through search (Spock, Wink), or aggregating management of all your accounts on one site. The latter solution… Read More

  • Roxio Releases Popcorn 3 For OS X

    Hungry for an MPAA lawsuit? Why not grab some Popcorn and download a copy of The Bourne Ultimatum or Superbad? By Popcorn, I mean the latest version of Roxio’s powerful DVD-burning software for the Mac. Popcorn 3 allows you to convert and burn video to multiple formats such as Xbox 360, iPhone, iPod, and more. You can also do batch DVD-video conversions on the fly and can even set it up… Read More

  • Apple's September 5 Event: What We Want


    This guy’s first in line for whatever Apple releases After Apple’s announcement saying there will be an announcement on September 5, we got to wondering: what’s it gonna be and what do we exactly want? I’ll go first Nicholas: Well at least one of the products will be that ugly like Betty fat nano. There had better be brand new, *normal* iPods announced. I’ve… Read More

  • Oh Snap! D-Snap! Panasonic Snap Madness!

    Unfortunately here in the US, it’s iPod or bust when it comes to MP3 players. In Japan however, choosing an MP3 player is a lot like picking out a hot chick to talk to – there are a lot to choose from. The latest to come out of Osaka is the Panasonic D-Snap SV-SD950N, a Bluetooth-equipped DAP that comes with a color screen and a 1GB SD card. Nothing fancy, though the player can… Read More

  • Want To Get Pixelmated?

    Want to get your hands on Photoshop-killer, Pixelmator? Of course you do, you Mac OS X fanboy. I hear there are a few torrents on public trackers somewhere. Don’t know where though. Absolutely no idea. Enjoy. Official Site Read More

  • Earthlink Cuts 900 Jobs, No One Notices

    I’m not really sure who uses Earthlink still. I guess people with dial-up chillin’ way out west. Either way, another sign that the company is failing has struck us, this time in the form of job cuts. About 900 people will lose their jobs as part of Earthlink’s restructuring efforts to save money for the company. It’s expected to save about $25-$35 million for the… Read More

  • Chicago No Longer Getting Citywide WiFi Network

    Though Chicago may be home to great things like deep dish pizza and DA BEARS, it won’t have a citywide WiFi network come 2008. Chicago officials have officially killed the plan that would have given 228 sq. miles of Chicago wireless Internet access. Unfortunately, not enough financing was available for the project to go through, despite companies like EarthLink showing interest. I guess… Read More

  • Nokia Launches Ovi Mobile Platform: Gaming, Maps, Music Umbrella

    Big news here in London. It’s no secret Nokia’s moving more into the content providing phase these days: offering mapping services, games, and a music store. In order to keep their scattered offerings under one umbrella, they’ve announced the upcoming launch of Ovi. A sort of cross-platform portal, Ovi will let users log on from either their Nokia phone or interneted PC… Read More

  • Ovi Knocking at the Door

    Today Nokia announced its new Internet services brand, Ovi. (Ovi is Finnish for door). Nokia’s new Internet service will include Nokia Music Store, N-Gage and Nokia Maps. Music and maps can be downloaded from Nokia Music Store and Nokia Maps. As reported yesterday on MobileCrunch (The Return of Frankenphone), N-Gage is a mobile phone gaming service.

    Boost Mobile, a division of Sprint Nextel, is offering its Unlimited by Boost to local youth charities for free. Unlimited by Boost is a mobile phone service that lets customers in parts of California and Texas make unlimited local and long distance calls from their home calling area for a fixed monthly price.

  • Nokia To Stake N-Gage Mobile Gaming Future On N-Series, Ovi Platform

    N-Gage had some decent games. The main problem with the old platform, of course, was that you had to buy one very specific Choco-Tacoy phone. They only pushed about 3 million of these suckers out the door in the entire world, which meant they were far shy of the terminal velocity needed to create a profitable gaming ecosystem. Well, there are already tens of millions of N-Series phones… Read More

  • Mobile Game News: Castlevania Coming from Konami, Capcom's Devil on Deck, I-play rushes to the ER

    In mobile game news this week, Konami has announced that it will develop content specially for mobile phones based on the company’s popular videogame brands, with new storylines and original music. The first of these will be Castlevania: Order of Shadows for the mobile platform, which will arrive on September 18 on major carriers including AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Networks. “As… Read More

  • Nokia Intros N81 Multimedia Phone

    Photos and video by Peter Ha We love the Nokia N-Series. If you can handle a bulky pocket and don’t insist on a real keyboard (or multi-touch screen), there really is no better way of of converging everything you’d ever want to do in your pocket. Enter the N81. It hits in two versions: One’s got 8-gig of flash, the other relies on your microSD card. Both have got stereo… Read More

  • Nokia 5610 Solidifies XpressMusic Line

    The 5610 XpressMusic is a whole different ballgame from the 5310. This 3G slider is feature rich with a slide lock key in the center that switches between the phone and music player. The 5610 is also encased in black (here and there) aluminum with red or blue accents and the same features as the previously announced 5310, but the screen is a smidge bigger at 2.2-inches and comes with a… Read More

  • Nokia 5310 XpressMusic Ups The Ante

    ‘Ello from London. Remember the 5310? Meet the 5310 XpressMusic. The middle child in the Xpress line now takes a candy bar form factor, which I like better than the slider. Encased in a sleek metallic black case with red or blue accents, the tri-band GSM 5310 takes it up a notch with a 2-inch QVGA screen, built-in FM stereo radio with RDS, a dedicated audio chip (DAC-33) for Hi-Fi audio… Read More

  • Nokia N-95 Goes Black, 8-Gigs

    The N-95 gets 8-gigs of memory, and a few (mostly cosmetic) updates today, like a nice black shell, and some other minor body mods. Still, the lack of any real internal innovation shouldn’t be too troublesome–the N95 is already a bit ahead of it’s time, if you ask me, but considering that the original came out before the most-hyped phone in history, and their entire reponse… Read More

  • Nokia To Offer Finger-Flicking Touchscreen On Future Devices, Draws Laughter


    In an unintentional laugh line at today’s press conference, a Nokia video demonstration touted the new “full-screen” touch interface on upcoming phones. The video showed a little hand flick through an interface in a way that was a little too reminiscent of another little phone . Note to Nokia: We love you, and you keep us giggling. Just check out the photo. Read More

    Seattle based Farecast, a startup that launched about 18 months ago to focus on predicting flight prices and guaranteeing users against increases, just expanded to help people find deals on hotel rooms as well. The hotels area of the site helps users see prices based on a number of travel search engines (Orbitz, CheapTickets and ReserveTravel). All the results are shown on a map along with… Read More

  • The Apple TV You're Having When You Don't Own An Apple TV

    Not Apple TV has a fairly simple goal: to recreate the Apple TV experience for users who don’t own an Apple TV, via the web browser. The flash based interface feels exactly like the Apple TV interface, with a few changes. Features such as a “History” and a “Favorites” have been included, along with a wider variety of online video choices; services available via… Read More
