  • Apple To Support HD DVD in Leopard?

  • Lebron Becomes Etch-A-Sketch Art

    Excited that the NBA Finals are finally here? I’m not, but that’s ok. It’s always a blast to watch LeBron pull off sweet moves. To celebrate Cleveland making it to the finals, the team contracted Etch-A-Sketch expert George Viosich to draw Number 23 (no, not Jordan) in all his basketball glory. The time-lapse video shows the five-hour period it took for Viosich to complete… Read More

  • Viral Marketing How-To-Not: Sony

    SCENE: Two Sony marketing folks in a conference room. One is languidly stroking a PS3. “Hey, Frank. We need to make some viral video. You know, to support Blu-Ray.”
    “I hear the director for our new commercials got really drunk and kept the cameras rolling. Most of the footage is garbage.”
    “That sounds great. Kids love crappy video.”

  • Unlocked iPhones Being Prepped


    Pure Mobile — don’t bother, the site is down — is claiming that they’ll have unlocked iPhone’s for sale, but I call complete BS on this. If the reports are true and only four million units are shipped, which equates to something like three iPhone’s per AT&T and Apple store, then Pure Mobile is doing some real heavy wheelin’ and dealin’… Read More

  • Video of Steve Jobs' WWDC 2007 Keynote Now Available

    If you spent your time yesterday under a rock (lol1) you would have missed Steve Jobs’ keynote. (Good thing, too, because it stunk.)

  • CrunchDeal: Nyko iBoost Rechargeable Battery Pack for iPod

  • Teen Stabs PS3 Burglar With Samurai Sword

    This is, without a doubt, the coolest PS3 story I’ve heard about in a long time. Two burglars broke into a Florida home and started to ransack the place. What they didn’t know is that Damian Fernandez and his 15-year-old sister Deanne were both home at the time. Deanne hid in her closet when she heard the robbers break in through her front door and watched the whole ordeal unfold… Read More

  • Toshiba Cuts Sales Expectations of HD DVD Players In Half; Sony Says Blu-ray Doing Swell

    Toshiba just slashed sales expectations of HD DVD players by nearly 50 percent in response to slower-than-anticipated sales in the U.S. The slow sales of the company’s HD DVD players in the U.S. will negatively affect the global position of the high-definition format, the company said.
