  • Today's Fun Google Will Acquire ______ Quiz Question. Answer Starts With S And Ends In T

    Rich Tehrani over at TMCNet is reporting that Google may be looking at buying mobile phone network operator Sprint.

America’s 5th largest company is already trying to buy mobile spectrum in the United States, and is considering a… Read More

  • 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

    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.

  • 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

    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.

  • 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
