• AppleGate

    Ryan Block has formally responded to what is now being referred to as “AppleGate” in Silicon Valley. Yesterday Engadget posted that the iPhone was going to be delayed several months, relying on what turned out to be a bogus email for the story. Four billion dollars in market cap was wiped off of Apple’s stock price in six minutes as the “news” hit the market. Read More

  • iPhone Finally Gets FCC Approval

    The iPhone has finally been approved by the FCC. That’s it, nothing more. We don’t want to post anything that would cause Apple’s stock to lose $4bn or anything. FCC [via Mobile Whack] Read More

  • Soccer Gadgets Just In Time For The FA Cup

    This Saturday is the FA Cp final over in Ingerland, when newly crowned EPL champions Manchester United face Chelsea, whose coach was just arrested because his dog is crazy. Something dog-related at any rate. So Shiny Shiny, the premiere Web site for shiny stuff, put together a list of the Top 10 Bestest Football Gadgets. And they are… Read More

  • HP eBook Reader: Watch Out, Sony, HP is After Your Five Customers!

    http://admin.brightcove.com/destination/player/player.swf This is essentially a prototype HP eReader introduced last week in Shanghai but clearly someone else besides big S is thinking about electronic ink. This one has a little slider thing at the bottom that you use to turn pages. Whoop-de-doo. via Notebooks.com Read More

  • WebTime Elite

    As a watch nut, I rarely drool over TokyoFlash’s odd designs or timepieces. Sure, they’re creative, but I’m a mechanical snob. Whatever. I like this one. This is an updated version of their WebTime watch which tells the time using overlapping polygons. It’s a clever design, great materials, and it’s just readable enough to be useful while not alienating the world. Read More

  • WPP Acquires 24/7 Real Media for $649m

    Online advertising services firm 24/7 Real Media is to be acquired by the WPP group for $649 million. The old time internet advertising firm had its origins serving ads for Yahoo! and Netscape in 1994 and was formerly founded the following year as Real Media. After numerous acquisitions it took its current name and grew to have 20 offices in 12 countries, serving over 200 billion… Read More

  • Russia Locked In Cyberwar With Estonia

    In the first war of its kind, Russia has been attacking the small country of Estonia for several weeks now. The incident started after a bronze statue of a soviet soldier was removed from its memorial by Estonians. Russia got pissed and has launched hack attacks, DDoS attacks and plenty of other tricks against the country, taking down websites of political members, newspapers, banks, companies… Read More

  • A Dolphin Reviews Today's Hottest Smartphones

    Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a potentially good joke ruined by poor execution. Such is the case when The Onion, America’s finest news source, had a dolphin review three highly anticipated smartphones, the Palm Treo 680, the BlackBerry Curve 8300 and the Apple iPhone. The reviewer, Flappy the Dolphin, thoroughly tested each smartphone, taking them underwater with him back to… Read More

  • Microsoft: We Will Never Support Blu-ray, Stop Asking

    I thought Microsoft had made it abundantly clear that it was backing HD DVD, but talk has surfaced in recent days of the company embracing Blu-ray, especially if it feels HD DVD isn’t catching on. No sir, that couldn’t be further from the truth: We’re fully committed to HD-DVD and have absolutely no plans to support other optical formats…. Current reports indicating… Read More

  • Halo 2 vs. Halo 3

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=19593 Halo 3 is almost upon us. OK, not really because September 25 is a long ways away. Some of you lucky fanboys are playing the Beta, so your thirst is somewhat quenched. Is Halo 3 that much better than Halo 2? Here’s a video comparing the multi-player game play for both versions in HD! Frag away! Read More

  • HP's Point and Search

    http://admin.brightcove.com/destination/player/player.swf Ok. Maybe I can wrap my mind around this demo. It’s basically a PDA with GPS and wireless that knows where you are and lets you “point” at buildings for reviews, maps, information, and phone numbers. There’s another video after the jump, but both of them are squonky for me on OS X so let me know what you think. Read More

  • Fun Alert: Pocket Watch Keychain Concept

    The Pocket Watch keychain is two hip and groovy gadgets in one. It’s part keychain and part pocket watch, united together in some Volton-like cacophony of fun. The cube, which measures just 20mm square, displays the time when the cord is yanked. The underlying principle for it is that you need keys to get somewhere, so why not get there on time? Clearly many hours of research went… Read More

  • Halo 3 Beta Extended

    Giddy as a schoolgirl when you realized a Halo 3 Beta key came with Crackdown? Wet yourself when the Beta was finally released? I’m sure you did. But Beta’s usually have some problems and Halo 3 was no different. Users were having problems downloading the Beta, but an update to Crackdown on Xbox Live fixed that problem. Problem solved, right? No. WTF, why can’t I see text?! Read More

  • Skype To Offer Gaming Connectivity

    Skype has announced that it will be offering a software developer’s kit (SDK) for its new GameXN framework. The plan is for Skype users to be able to invite one another into online games. No word yet on if Skype plans on allowing users to communicate via VoIP during the game, but I’d imagine it’s in the works. Windows Live Messenger already has some similar features, but a lot… Read More

  • Rumor and Innuendo: XM Losing 20K Subscriptions Per Day in Clash With Opie & Anthony Fans

    Hell hath no fury like the Opie & Anthony pests scorned. Rumors, utter utter rumors, suggest that between 19,000 and 38,000 subscriptions were canceled as of yesterday in response to the radio duo’s suspension. That works out to about 20,000 subs killed for each of the past two days. Add that to the many XM units still being destroyed and XM certainly must be feeling the heat as a… Read More

  • Samsung Smörgåsbord Smells Like…

    I’m usually on-board with the mobile phones that Samsung puts out on the market, but the 5200 makes me scratch my head and rethink my loyalties. The dual slide design is nice and all, but you can’t rip the QWERTY out in favor of gaming controls. WTF! It runs on WinMo so I could care less about the 2.8-inch touchscreen, 3-megapixel camera and HDSPA. Does anyone else notice the… Read More

  • Unboxing the Halo 3 Zune: Almost As Exciting As Reboxing It

    http://www.gearlive.com/video/newflvplayer.swf Call me a Sulky Sally, but I’m about as excited about the Halo 3 Zune as I am about paying my mortgage — I guess it’s necessary, but it really doesn’t charge me up. Apparently the rest of the world disagrees and, in order to be fair to those people I’ve posted Unboxing.com’s video of opening a box containing… Read More

  • Sony Says Yes to PSP Store, Fall Launch Expected

    So Sony announced that it’s going to launch a PSP store, intending to have it up and running sometime this fall. Then again, we’ve pretty much assumed that was going to happen since it launched the handheld two years ago. And really, it wasn’t much of an announcement, just a one-off comment by SCEA’s president saying that it should’ve been here by now and that… Read More

  • NBC2GO to Air Preakness Stakes

    While the Preakness Stakes doesn’t get quite the hype of the Kentucky Derby, this race at Pimlico Race Course is still a big event in horse racing. It is also the second leg for Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense on his quest for the elusive “Triple Crown” of the famed Thoroughbred racing series. And this year’s event will serve as the debut event for NBC Sports, as… Read More

  • Game Content Under the Microscope: Watch What Our Kids Watch


    Should the ratings for video games be updated? Since being adopted in 1994 the landscape of video games has changed greatly, and some experts believe it is time for a revision, or at least redefinition of what is appropriate for adults and what is family friendly. In this fourth part of our series on video game violence and content CrunchGear spoke with Doctor David Walsh, president of… Read More
