• CiPhone: The "C" is for quality

    I’ve seen some iPhone fakes in my day, but this just about takes the cake. Meet the CiPhone, an almost note-perfect copy of the iPhone. I’ve said this again and again: if Chinese engineers focused on making their IP devices as cool and as clearly high-end as this fake, they could take down Apple, Microsoft, and most of the international IT infrastructure in a few years. Instead… Read More

  • Productivity Tips: Take a Tech break and use paper

    Since this is Productivity Week, I was told to come up with some short and sweet tips for you to enjoy. So I quickly started to brainstorm. At first I was using my computer to try and find tips, but I found myself getting distracted. So I moved to a piece of paper I had lying around. As soon as I put my pen to the paper I thought, “Wow this could be my first productivity tip.” If… Read More

  • Windows 7 debuts at D6: Video! Multi-touch! And a dock?

    http://images.video.msn.com/flash/soapbox1_1.swf
    Video: Multi-Touch in Windows 7 What with an exciting (ahem) interview and a batch of kind of insane screenshots of Windows 7 already blowing up the internets today, you’d think Microsoft would be patting itself on the back. Nope, it’s got one more little trick up its Ultimate Home Sleeve. It looks like Windows 7 has actually made… Read More

  • Google reveals App Engine pricing plan, APIs, no more waiting list

    Google is planning a few announcements for their web application platform, Google App Engine, at tomorrow’s I/O Conference, but the folks over at ReadWriteWeb managed to get the details a bit early in a pre-conference interview. One of the announcements will be pricing plans for resource allotments past what Google offers developers with their free accounts. Though free accounts come… Read More

    http://videos.streetfire.net/vidiac.swf?video=dfa695ce-4979-4ab4-a172-9a9c0185249c&versionfile=flash/FlashPlayerVersion.txt Ford thinks Sync is cool, but not quite cool enough, so it’s developed this interactive next-gen dash system that takes Sync and adds its own goodness, such as touchsreen GPS and real-time traffic. It’s not a replacement for Sync, but rather a… Read More

  • Trailer released for second Futurama movie, The Beast with a Billion Backs

    I heart Futurama. I dig the series and, even though I made the typical fanboy mistake of assuming a movie would suck something terrible, I really enjoyed Bender’s Big Score. With the release of the trailer for the second flick, The Beast with a Billion Backs, I’m starting to get all giddy again. It apparently follows up on the events of the first, so if you didn’t hate the… Read More

  • CrunchNetwork Prague Meet-up Wrap-up and Take-aways

    http://share.ovi.com/tools/twidgets/ticker.swf?feed=CrunchNetwork.CGEurope The Prague CrunchNetwork Meet-up was a roaring success, the kind of drunken brodeo full of tech geeks and one or two of the women who love them we in the Valley and New York take for granted. Best of all I got to see a few nascent start-ups in the Prague tech scene and even a few well-established products that we might… Read More

  • Alleged pictures of 3G iPhone

    Real or fake? Of course, none of our opinions matter since none of us work at Apple or at this supposed accessory manufacturer, but it’s fun to argue with everyone else on the Internet like we’re some sort of authority, right? I, for one, continue to be unimpressed. Read More

  • Now people are turning busted gaming consoles into casemods. That's just crazy talk!

    Sure, they’re not as useful as some purpose-made cases, but these case mods are pretty cool. If your favorite gaming console bites the dust, you too could turn it into a PC with a little wire, glue, solder, duct tape and nerves of steel. My fave by far is the Game Boy hack, because using the screen for the fan input is just awesome. When someone figures out how to casemod my Blackout… Read More

    Intel was projecting a June launch for the Centrino 2 chipset, but TG Daily is reporting that Intel has indeed run into issues with FCC certification and graphics issues that was reported earlier by Tech Trader Daily. TG’s source is claiming a soft launch for July 14 with a full rollout a couple weeks later. For the Apple fanboys, that means no new MacBooks or MacBook Pros until later… Read More

    It seems that only now are we beginning to really see decent image quality combine with truly small form factor in digital cameras.

Because of the nature of the sensors and their small size, every photon counts and more often than not… Read More

  • Windows 7 screen grabs look better than they sound

    So Microsoft’s Sinofsky had a pretty good dance with CNET about Windows 7, really not saying much of anything. But a picture’s worth a thousand words, right? Howzabout a ton of pics? We can confirm these are indeed screen shots of the current build of Windows 7 as it will be introduced in 2010, but keep in mind that’s three years away and many changes might be made. Read More

  • Three details about Windows 7

    CNET has a very long interview with Microsoft’s Steven Sinofsky, the guy in charge of the Windows 7 project. Sinofsky dekes and jukes like the great Walter Payton to provide almost zero details about the next version of Windows, despite an almost 4000 word long article. Here’s what we know, though. 1. Windows 7 will be available “about three years after the general… Read More
