• Jiggy: An Easy Web-Based IDE for iPhones

    Now programming your iPhone is even easier thanks to Jiggy. Jiggy is a mini IDE that runs right on the iPhone, making it essentially OS agnostic. You do all the programming via a Web interface and you code in Javascript with a few Jiggy/iPhone native calls. The code is fairly straightforward (here’s ‘Hello World’) and you can even add your own icons to the iPhone UI. This… Read More

  • Thule Trail: modern day Oregon Trail

    I have fond memories of the Oregon Trail game. What with the dysentery, hunting and accidental drowning of oxen while fording the river, it consumed much of my younger years. All of that and the fact that I’m from Oregon. Heh. Now, I’m not sure if there are other modern interpretations of the classic, but this caught my eye and I thought I’d share. Thule Trail replaces the… Read More

  • BitTorrent Is Now Streaming Movies (With Ads). But Where's The Good Stuff?

    For anyone who thinks that full-length movies on the Web are for downloading only should check out the Watch Now section on BitTorrent (you will need Flash Player 9 installed). Launched quietly on December 5 using its BitTorrent DNA streaming technology, Watch Now offers a few hundred full-length movies and TV shows that you can watch in full-screen that start a few seconds after clicking play.

  • CarCam Voyager preserves dashboard memories

    How many hilarious moments have you witnessed from behind the wheel of your car? Tens? Hundreds? Now imagine if you had a dash-mounted device that could record up to eight hours of video at a time and would preserve all these moments forever. Catch the physical comedy of the neighborhood invalid slowly traversing a crosswalk while the light turns green and everyone starts honking, laugh in… Read More

  • PS3 update to support DivX too

    The PS3 update we talked about a couple weeks ago is on its way and should be arriving in your big black box as soon as tomorrow. The readme describes the update as being released December 18th, and not only will it update the Blu-Ray firmware to v1.1, but it will add DivX and WMV support. I don’t think that means support for the cooler XviD and H.264 codecs/containers is forthcoming… Read More

  • Video streaming from mobile to Web the next killer app?

    Leading tech commentator Robert Scoble has gone mad for a new video streaming service for mobiles called Qik. It competes with Kyte and Seesmic but unlike those you do not have to wait for the video to be uploaded. Instead it streams the video straight into the site with a 5 second delay. To use it you download and install the client software – in Scoble’s case a Noka N95… Read More

  • Want to hop-up that DS of yours?

    I’m not really into portable gaming devices, but if I had to pick between the DS and PSP, I’d probably opt for the former. That’s not to say the PSP isn’t a great device. I just don’t need everything it offers and it’s kind of bulky. The DS is great tool for learning as well. But if I were to some day be into things like watching movies or listening to… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Buy three, get one free video game deal

    The last thing I want to do is tell you how to run your life, so I’m just saying this for your reference. I’m not trying to be a nag or tell you what to do but Toys backwards-R Us has a deal going on right now that allows you to purchase three video games and then take home a fourth one for free. I just wanted you to know that. You’re by no means under any obligation to… Read More

  • Portable Sirius Stilleto 10 receiver for $50 (and a merger update)

    If you’ve been thinking about making the satellite radio plunge (and have your heart set on Sirius), today’s the day to whip out your credit card. Today (and today only, according to an e-mail I received a little while ago) you can grab a Stiletto 10 for $50, a full $100 off the regular price, with the purchase of a subscription. The portable Stiletto 10 doesn’t have some of… Read More

  • Sony sells more PS2s than PS3s in November (and that's not as bad as you may think)

    Maybe people just really love the PS2? How else could you explain November’s sales numbers, which saw the PS2 sell 496,000 units vs. the PS3’s 466,000? (The Wii, despite the shortage, sold 981,000 and the 360 sold 770,000.) Actually, I wonder if Sony cares as much (that the PS2 outsold the PS3) as the inflammatory headlines you’re likely to see suggest. At this point… Read More

  • Homer: picture a day for 39 years

    There comes a time in every person’s life when they’ve finally realized their dream of becoming a pop culture icon. That time has come for Noah Kalina and what better way to be immortalized then in an episode of The Simpsons? It was a simple enough idea that was executed perfectly and just over a year later this is the fruit of Noah’s labor. Who would have thunk it? Read More

  • Ribbit wants to introduce telephony to Facebook, other software apps

    How badly do you want to be able to call your friends directly from your Facebook profile, without actually picking up your phone? A new technology company by the name of Ribbit Corp. hopes your answer to that question was anything other than “not at all,” since it showed off out a service earlier today that does just that. The technology aims to embed telephony in the software you… Read More

  • Intel to embed solid-state drives on UMPC boards

    In a move that makes sense, perfect or otherwise, Intel has announced that it’ll soon be manufacturing UMPC-specific boards with embedded Z-P140 PATA solid-state drives. The drives will apparently be available in 2- and 4-gigabytes and up to four drives can be embedded on a board, giving you up to 16-gigabytes to work with. Look for the first wave of these devices in the first half of… Read More
