  • Performancing Heading to DeadPool

    Performancing closed their advertising network, Performancing Partners, today. Their metrics service, a separate product, was closed when an acquisition by PayPerPost fell apart earlier this month. That PayPerPost deal also led Performancing to rebrand their third product, a popular blog editor, to ScribeFire. It is our understanding that the company does not intend to keep the ScribeFire name… Read More

    There are a few more products from CES I wanted to fill you in on. One I met with before CES (TeleNav), one I missed my meeting with (Trimble Outdoors) and the other was a spur-of-the-moment thing (Polaroid’s Media Backup Drives). TeleNav makes GPS solutions for mobile devices. (Trimble does, too, for that matter.) TeleNav’s big announcement for CES was that it’ll have… Read More

  • Email, Holograms of the Dead to Haunt Your Inbox

    What if your grandfather’s urn (you know, the vase on the mantle your mom won’t let the cat near) had WiFi and could send you birthday emails years after Grandad has gone to heaven? That’s the idea behind Microsoft’s “Immortal Computing” initiative. In fact, that’s pretty much it: before you shuffle off your mortal coil, you record a series of… Read More

  • Plantronics + Quiksilver/Roxy = Bluetooth Audio That Doesn't Look Douchey

    (or, indeed, unwired) clothing is something we’ve seen before, iPod remotes in sleeves and the like, but Plantronics has partnered with Roxy and Quiksilver and they seem to have gotten it right, releasing a series of snowboarding equipment with built-in stereo Bluetooth hands-free kits. The line of parkas and helmets allows not only for chatting with co-boarders on the slopes via… Read More

  • Boot Camp: Free for Leopards, $30 for Tigers

    When Leopard, the forthcoming version of Apple’s OS X, hits the streets in the coming weeks, it will ship with Boot Camp, built-in software that allows Intel-based Macs to dual-boot to Windows XP (or, indeed, Vista).

  • The Ruckus Network Launches, We Look For The O-Ring

    Another day, another iTunes competitor. Ruckus has been kicking around for a couple of years now, but it has finally gotten its act together enough to launch a coherent music store. But “music store” might be the wrong term to use, as all of the music downloaded from Ruckus, even that from major label artists, is free. The idea is that by offering the music in an… Read More

  • Colorado Apple Store Gets Jacked

    You may have a hard time scoring an iPod Nano if you live near Boulder, Colorado. Earlier this month, a small plexiglass display case was snatched from an Apple store on 29th Street. The thieves made off with 42 iPod nanos by simply grabbing the case and walking out it, as the display stand wasn’t bolted down in any way. Police say employees failed to notice any suspicious activity on… Read More

  • Quickoffice 4 for Symbian S60 Out Now

    While the small screen might not be ideal for writing the Great American Novel, it’s great for last-minute changes or reviews of documents. Quickoffice 4, the latest rendition of the popular mobile software, does just that and is now available for Symbian S60-powered handsets, giving users read and write capabilities on the fly.

    I’m all for progress, but perhaps we’re reaching a stage in our evolution where the fruits of our intellect are surpassing our ability to keep down our Chef Boyardee.

  • Shed Some Flab With Your Wii

    When the Wii first debuted last year, gamers thought they’d be whipping themselves into shape by playing titles like Wii Sports and Madden ’07. Now, it’s confirmed that instead of going outside and playing real sports, you can drop some pounds by doing it all virtually. Mickey DeLorenzo spent a little over six weeks playing Wii Sports for 30-minutes a day. He ate the same… Read More
