• Wink Now Searches MySpace, LinkedIn and Bebo

    Social search site Wink released a new feature called People Search this weekend and I think it’s going to be a big move for the company. Wink People Search searches over the user profiles of MySpace, LinkedIn and Bebo. It’s not a mashup of the sites’ own search functions, it’s an original indexing of more than 100 million profiles over these three social… Read More

  • Xbox 360 HD-DVD Drive Unveiling

    Kotaku got their hands on a HD-DVD and a few titles and apparently they’re going to way for Britney Rears 5: K-Flo Comes Home in HD-DVD before he tries it out. This, if you didn’t notice, is the first major shot fired in the HD wars this year. The noise about the Samsung/Toshiba versions were just the coda. This is the real deal. If this takes off – and it probably will… Read More

  • Battle Test: Logitech diNovo Edge

    Logitech’s diNovo series is intended for more aesthetically minded consumers. The series found success a couple of years ago with the release of the diNovo Media Desktop, a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard combo that had a separate keypad that could serve as a sort of remote.

  • DormItem: Regional College Classifieds in Rails

    DormItem is a newly launched online classified ads service that searches not one college, but listings from colleges in the surrounding geographic area of wherever you attend.

  • DVRs Force Advertisers To Actually Entertain Viewers


    I’m really sick of advertising companies and the brands they represent crying over the lost revenues from TV viewers skipping over commercials with their DVRs and/or TiVos. While it’s true I do fast-forward through most commercials, I have been known to stop and watch the ones I like. You know, the ones that don’t suck. Apparently, though, the only way companies feel they… Read More

  • EA, Playa Hater

    lying open at just past the denouement while she gets up to stretch and check her old school Palm V which she’s had for years because “newer PDAs have so much accreted junk in the OS, you know?” He then used the comparison of a nice looking girl you might see in a bar and go up and talk to, “And if she’s smart enough, that’s the gameplay. Gears of War… Read More

  • Skype 3.0 (beta) starts the communication platform wars.

    [UPDATE: Want to see more secret skype emoticons? See here]. This week saw the launch of Skype 3.0 (beta) and on the surface there is very little new to get excited about other than a new plug-in manager. The real changes in this new version seem to have taken place under the hood where Skype has been working on Skype4Java and Skype4COM, new wrapper libraries that use the Skype… Read More

  • Why wiDock? Why Not?

    long enough to write a quick post about it. The wiDock is one such dock. Why? Because instead of just starting with a lowercase “i” like every other iPod accessory, the wiDock adds a lowercase “w.” Isn’t that special? But there’s more. If you want a charging cradle for your iPod, but not a pesky USB cable, this is for you. Plug your iPod into the dock, as… Read More

  • Fox News Attacks Sony PlayStation Portable

    I’m all for bashing the Sony PSP — it’s an overpriced handheld with a slew of awful games, but this is absolutely ridiculous. Fox 29 News is attacking the PSP for its WiFi capabilities. One of the good things about the handheld device is that it supports multiplayer and web browsing via WiFi (it’s one of the few things that justify the PSP’s price). Fox 29 News… Read More
