  • Podcasts Taking Off (Again): eMarketer

    Some interesting new figures have been released by eMarketer today that shows that podcasts are taking off in both traffic and revenue, and the outlook is even better again.

  • Flux Takes Off

    The Viacom-backed Flux social network, which launched just last September, is really taking off. Flux is a partially distributed social network.

Ning has the benefit of… Read More

  • NEC has those new LCD monitors you asked for, sir

    I had an NEC CRT monitor for years and it never did me wrong. Got it with my first Alienware system in late 2000 and it stuck with me till I got my Dell LCD (It was just time) and even now I look back on it with fondness. So I can recommend NEC as a brand but I can’t speak just yet to the quality of their LCD monitors. The specs look good, though: 16:10 wide screen, 5ms response time… Read More

  • AT&T broadband unit screws paying customers to make up for non-paying customers

    [photopress:AT_T.jpg,full,center] If you’re an AT&T broadband customer, that sound you hear is your bill inflating. For no good reason other than to “better reflect the value of our broadband service”, AT&T is hiking up your price by $5 a month. This is in reaction to shareholders who blasted the company’s stock, after CEO Randall Stephenson said that there… Read More

  • iPhone-Codes says don't unlock your iPhone, we say pshaw

    This just in from a BFF poster: Unlocking the iPhone is getting popular in the undergrounds and AT&T is lossing millions dollars because of this activity. What with Jailbreak and Metasploit, people can now easily unlock their iPhones or tinker with their units.

  • Everex Cloudbook: The Motion Picture

    The video’s about on the same level of quality as Heidi Montag’s new music video, but considerably sexier. Well, maybe. In any case, it doesn’t give you the sense of how compact the thing is since there is no way of telling the scale in the video. It could be a galaxy-sized Cloudbook in a white void, but likely it’s just their production model, set to hit the street hot… Read More

  • Onkyo latest to cause grief to HD DVD camp

    [photopress:ONKYO.jpg,full,center] Oh no! Yet another manufacturer is dropping support for HD-DVD, this time coming from home theater heartthrobs Onkyo. While not committing to total abandonment of the troubled format, it’s definitely an ominous sign of things to come. Onkyo, though, is oddly mum about switching over to the competing Blu-ray format, neither confirming or denying that it… Read More

  • Intel debuts Silverthorne processor; Dragonfire Ring, Dwarfsbane Sword and Elven Might Sling to follow

    [photopress:intel.jpg,full,center] As subnotebooks like the Eee PC and the XO become more and more common (they will), a new market will develop around them and copycat machines. Intel hopes to be a player in this new market with its new Silverthrone line of processors. Pentium-class (or x86) processors, the tiny chips can clock up to 2GHz, while only using 600 milliwatts.

  • Linus believes MS's Linux patent disputes to be sword-rattling nonsense

    [photopress:foss_4709.jpg,full,right]Recently, Microsoft suggested that Linux, or at least parts of it, infringed upon certain Microsoft patents. It hasn’t said specifically which ones, just that it thinks it happens. Linux Torvalds, the grandaddy of Linux, said in an interview with the Linux Foundation that he believes MS is talking crap. They have been sued for patents by other people… Read More
