  • Is Fav.or.it a Digg killer?

    Fav.or.it is tiny start-up based in a small office an hour’s drive from London. But this “feature rich community-based feed reading system” is about to unleash a wholly original take on reading blogs and news feeds which could see it face-down even the social bookmarking giants like Digg and the newer kids like CoComment. Favorit brings together blog reading and replying into… Read More

  • Amazing 3D gesture-based Pioneer GPS system

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf I was wandering around the show floor when I came upon this little gem. It’s a gesture-based 3D system that lets you control your dashboard GPS/radio with a wave of your finger. It’s over at the Carrozzeria booth, which is an offshoot of Pioneer. The icons that pop up float in 3D and you wave and bat… Read More

  • Sony announces updated Reader, eBook lovers around the world to meet in a phone booth to celebrate


    Call me Mr. Crazypants — it’s a Hungarian name, I think — but aren’t we done with eBook readers? I could see eBooks on the iPhone or eBooks on our laptops, but a standalone reader is just too esoteric and niche to really go far. I want this stuff to work but it’s just not in the cards. That said, Sony just announced their new Sony Reader. It will cost $300 and… Read More

  • Crazy, uber-skinny Sharp HDTVs

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf I got a chance to circle the new ultra-slim sharp LCDs. They look amazing and they’re so damn thin it’s incredible. There’s one shot in there of an LCD sliding up out of some cabinet and it looks like a piece of paper popping up. These are truly flat screens. Read More

  • Toshiba Booth Tour

    I love the Qosmio line of Toshiba laptops and this collection of Gigabeats, phones, and cameras made me pee a little. Essentially the entire laptop line is very slick with unique touches like HDDVD playback and odd applications for music and photo viewing. Read More

  • Panasonic's DIGA Blu-Ray/DVD Recorders: 18 hours on one BR disk

    Our first stop was a huge announcement by Panasonic about their line of DIGA Blu-Ray/DVD recorders. The recorders — BW700/800/900 on the Blu-Ray side and XW200V/100/300 on the DVD side — include monstrous hard drives and we’ll probably never see them over here. The Blu-Ray series starts at 250GB and tops out at 1TB of internal storage. It records to DVD and Blu-Ray and… Read More

  • Yahoo Search Just Got Smarter

    Yahoo is adding some major features to its search engine today. For instance, images from Flickr and playable videos are now embedded in the main results page. A search for a major rock band like U2 brings up information from the artist’s Website, along with a list of songs that can be played as 30-second audio streams (courtesy of Yahoo Music).

  • TechMeme Leaderboard In Context + New Verticals On The Way

    Techmeme’s new popular list product Leaderboard launched today, and the reaction has been interesting.

First the big news: more Meme Leaderboard products are on the way, with Leaderboards to be launched for Gabe Rivera’s other sites Memeorandum, WeSmirch… Read More

    Hello, true-believers. I just landed in Narita last night and I’m getting ready to wander the halls at CEATEC, one of the biggest CE and component shows in Asia. Not sure what I’ll see here but I’m sure it will be fabulous. Stay tuned and follow my travels here. If you emailed me about meeting up, I’ll get back to you this afternoon.

  • Breaking: Bungie spins off from Microsoft! [Update]

    You know that monster video game franchise, Halo? The one that works only on the Xbox series of game consoles? The one made by Microsoft’s Bungie? It still belongs to MS, but all other things Bungie no longer do. As of today, my friends who work for Bungie are no longer Microsoft employees, as Gates and company have allowed the department to spin off as an independent company. Read More

That’s right. They include mechanical, digital and movie for any situation to deliver crisp and clear shots.

  • Rumor: Vizio Set to Branch Out? DVR, Home Theater Set-ups Coming?

    OK, when I first got wind of this rumor a couple days ago, I dismissed it. It’s something that I chalked up to background chatter. The thing is, I got a second email today from another source who’s always been right, so now this thing is looking more like a real deal. Rumormonger One told me that Vizio, you know, the HDTV guys, were getting ready to build hard drives into their TVs. Read More
