• Leopard WWDC Beta Leaked Then Quickly Un-Leaked: Apple Playing Hardball?

    Apple appears to have used its goons to prevent the unauthorized leak of the newest Mac OS X Leopard beta, build 9A466. Jerks. Someone posted the beta onto the Oink BitTorrent site on Thursday and within six hours “ninjas got to [him].” Users on various Internet sites have taken that to mean that Apple’s lawyers had contacted the leaker, forcing him to kill the torrent. That… Read More

  • Danger/Motorola Zante aka Slide aka Sidekick 3.5 Details Emerge

    A few more details on the latest Danger device have trickled through and hit the Giz. Remember the Sidekick RAZR X PowerPoint slides that made the rounds a while back?

  • YouTube Mobile Launches

    YouTube just launched a new service optimized for mobile devices. A few days ago we mentioned how the Gen-5 Archos players are the only mobile devices to play flash vids smoothly.

  • iPhone Launch Details Emerge

    Well, well, well. We now know why Apple and AT&T are launching the iPhone at 6 p.m, but frankly, it pisses me off. All AT&T stores will shut their doors at 4:30PM to take shipment of iPhones.

  • The Rise Of The Prosumer

    Mark this word in your mental diaries: Prosumer. The word is a combination of producer and consumer that perfectly describe the millions of participants in the Web 2.0 revolution. It’s not a new word, but it’s a word that will become the norm in the coming years. It’s already being used by companies such as Sony to describe users of video cameras. Earlier in the week… Read More

    Lawyer ratings site Avvo is being sued by lawyers unhappy with negative ratings. The complaint on behalf of Seattle lawyers John Henry Browne and Alan Wenokur says Avvo is deceptive, unfair and violates state consumer protection laws.
