    YouSendIt, an online file transfer service with a focus on businesses, is removing the beta label from an Outlook plugin that automatically reroutes large attachments through its so-called “FedEx for the internet” system.

  • Twitter Fails To Fail, Community Rejoices

    When Twitter took drastic measures to try to survive a single day of heavy traffic (today’s Steve Jobs keynote at the WWDC), I said “…they may win the day. Expect silence on our end if they do, and a merciless blog post if they fail.” Some commenters thought that was unfair of me, though, and in a weak moment I subsequently promised to give Twitter a golf clap it they… Read More

  • Google hearts the Konami code

    Even as Google grows bigger and bigger, its developers continue to slip little Easter eggs into their applications. It’s never anything huge – just little inside jokes which serve as a reminder that there are living, breathing people behind the otherwise faceless applications. As Blogoscoped points out, one of these people has infused a bit of gamer lore into Google Reader. Log… Read More

  • Game Over. Hulu Wins. They Have The Daily Show. And Colbert.

    Ok, I’ve been ridiculously hard on Hulu from the beginning. But that ends. Today. Because Hulu is now streaming full episodes of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report, from Comedy Central. No more Tivo. No more dealing with BitTorrent. I can just log in and watch the show in 480p, and that makes me very, very happy. I will never again refer to Hulu as Clown Co. Or… Read More

  • Intel kind of gets beat at its own game, briefly

    Recently, Corel showed off a Cell-optimized version of DVD Movie Factory on a Toshiba’s SpursEngine 1000 (SE1000).

It’s even more impressive when you read that the li’l Cell is about half as powerful as the big daddy Cell found in the PS3. If you’re thinking… Read More

    Relax, it’s over, we came out of it alright. The iPhone 3G is officialized, and it’s pretty hot. Not just the faster speeds and real GPS, but the forthcoming apps and low price tag make it more a more than drool-worthy piece of hardware. But what about us jailbreakers? Many of use run our iPhones on T-Mobile and run a plethora of free, non-official apps. The dev teams have done… Read More

  • Uh, isn't that what the iPhone does when it crashes?

    At the end of Apple’s new commercial for the iPhone 3G, the camera swings around from behind to show the front of the device. After displaying the standard springboard homescreen, the screen flips over to an Apple logo on a black background — the same screen shown during boot up. What a creative way to show off the product while seamlessly incorporating the company’s logo… Read More

  • Old news in an hour, but iPhone will be free on 02


    I just got it confirmed from an O2 source (hat tip to Will Harris at ChannelFlip – you know why), that the UK 3G iPhone will be free on an 18 month contract to new O2 customers, but £100 for existing customers.
