  • Clear2O Water Pitcher: Drinking Redefined

    About a month ago, I received an e-mail from a PR guy asking me if I’d like to try the Clear2O Water Pitcher, a Brita-style water filter for your fridge. Having just moved into a new apartment sans Brita, I jumped on the opportunity and requested a unit. Then on Monday of this week, a package came. I opened it up and lo and behold, it was the Clear2O.

  • Google's Share of U.S. Online Ads Hits 40 Percent

    <right Google is really growing into its gorillahood. A quick calculation (via HipMojo), based on the latest figures from the Interactive Advertising Bureau, shows that in the first half of 2007 Google commanded a 40 percent market share of all online advertising in the U.S. (Okay, I’m rounding up. It was really 39.8 percent). But that compares to a 34.6 percent share in the… Read More

  • Win a Wii covered in blood

    Well, fake blood at least. Looks like Rockstar Games, the folks behind the popular Grand Theft Auto series, are giving away a 50-inch plasma TV and a Nintendo Wii covered in “blood”. Don’t worry though, it’s just a couple of stickers on the system and the Wiimote, so you won’t be getting the HIVRageMonkeyVirus anytime soon. If you win, you’ll also get a copy… Read More

  • Mario and Luigi remote controlled mini golfers

    Howsabout a little mini golf before your mid-morning accounts receivable meeting? These remote controlled Mario and Luigi figurines would be great for just that. At $25 each, they’re not exactly cheap given that "frustration may ensue when trying for the perfect putt" but can you really put a price on the nostalgia-meets-mini-golf craze that’s about to sweep the… Read More

  • Sprint Nextel Looking for new Chief?

  • Apple hates the CAPZ as much as you do

    Early this morning, I was going through blogs and came across this post on the new Apple keyboards. It seems that Apple has engineered its new keyboard to detect keystrokes. The blogger brings up a point on how he was always hitting the Caps Lock key by accident when he went to hit the shift key. I myself have found myself doing the same thing. But how come when we hit the Caps Lock key… Read More

  • iPhone, iPod touch output video better than classic, nano

    Wow. Don’t expect top-notch video quality from the iPod classic or iPod nano while using Apple’s recently released Component AV Cable. Compared to the the iPhone and iPod touch, the classic and nano eat it. Whereas the iPhone and touch look fairly similar to iTunes-puchased video as played back on a computer monitor, the classic and nano distort the picture like nobody’s… Read More

  • eBay deleting auctions with Jajah buttons

    It’s a little like a dirty fight in the school yard: Little kid throws stone at big kid and when the teacher turns round, the little kid starts bawling and the big kid takes the heat. On Monday Internet telephony company Jajah started releasing “call-me” buttons which sets up a real phone call between two parties, with the voice re-routed over the Internet. Jajah… Read More

  • Court Victory For Music Labels Won't Save Their Industry

    The music industry won the first file-sharing case to go to trial yesterday when a jury found a Minnesota woman guilty of 24 counts of copyright infringement. The $222,000 verdict comes to $9,250 for each of the 24 songs at issue. Perhaps this is how the industry hopes to keep the price of music from going down to zero.

  • Stixy: Free-Form Collaboration and File Sharing Spaces

    The internet ought to have made it dead simple to share files long ago. But for some reason, I still scratch my head every time I want to send a batch of photos or a collection of documents to a non-technical friend without resorting to email (which is not a dead simple solution in my book). That’s why I get excited when I see companies like Stixy attempting to make file sharing not only… Read More

  • Plaxo + LinkedIn + iPhone = Brilliant

    TechCrunch has been hard on unified address book provider Plaxo in the past, and probably with due cause, given their previous spam promoting ways, but I am now reevaluating that view based on Plaxo Sync. I wrote about Plaxo’s improved Sync features back in June; although it sounded good I didn’t really have cause to use it then. Confronted with a “how do I sync various… Read More

    The Chinese Government has added a blanket ban on all RSS feeds, according to a report at Ars Technica. There have been reports previously that Feedburner feeds have been blocked, but to-date information delivered by RSS feeds has generally gone uncensored, providing Chinese viewers information that would otherwise be blocked if attempting to visit a regular webpage or blog.
