    Here’s a sneak peek at the Rumor, which I’m told arrived yesterday to the folks at Sprint. We’ll have a full review in the coming weeks. It’s tiny, feels so good in my hands and has a great keyboard. Nice job, LG. Read More

  • Facebook Takes the Microsoft Money And Runs.

    While the storyline would have been more dramatic if Facebook had spurned its current ad-serving partner Microsoft for Google, it is confirmed that Microsoft has won the deal. It will invest $240 million in Facebook and expand its existing relationship to international markets, according to the WSJ. (The previous advertising relationship was only for the U.S., now Microsoft is… Read More

  • Hands on with the Nokia N810

    I’m so thankful I found something worthwhile from this trip to San Francisco. Behold the N810 Internet tablet. It’s awesome. A very nice form factor that makes the N800 look like a fatty, fat, fat, fat. I wants it, too. Read More

  • Hands on with the Motorola RAZR 2 Luxury Edition

    I won’t lie. This phone is hot. I want it. I must have it. The babes will flock rather than run like they normally do. Yes, I know I cracked jokes about the Luxury Edition earlier, but it’s such a sexy piece of hardware. The faux snake skin isn’t half bad and the diamond-cut plating is well done. I really, really want it and it sort of makes me sick to my stomach. Read More

  • Rumor: Guitar Hero hardware won't work with Rock Band

    I don’t play Guitar Hero because I suck at it so I’m not sure why this is even such a big deal, but apparently it is so I’m letting you all know. There was some speculation earlier that axes from GH 1 and 2 would be compatible on Rock Band, but I heard that Harmonix isn’t down with that. In fact, they pretty much told he/she/it that it’s not going to happen. Why… Read More

  • 1,000 Invites For P2P Storage App Wuala

    Okay, I’ve been sitting on these too long. At the Web 2.0 conference, I met a young Swiss entrepreneur named Dominik Grolimund, who is the CEO of a peer-to-peer storage application called Wuala. TechCrunch UK covered it here. The first 1,000 TechCrunch readers who sign up will get into the alpha. (Enter code “techcrunch”). Wuala is a P2P competitor to Xdrive, MediaMax… Read More

  • Rumor: LG Voyager hits November…

    16th? We’ve heard mumblings that the Voyager is dropping on the 18th for about $250 with a possible preorder beginning on the 8th, but we heard from the horse’s mouth that it should drop on the 16th. We’re not sure on the price, but we’re confident on the date. We’ll see how it pans out, though. Read More

  • CG Exclusive: Samsung F700-variant coming to Verizon

    Don’t ask us when or where or how we know this, but Samsung’s much-drooled-after F700 will be hitting Verizon (so, yes, a CDMA version, which is smaller we’ve been told), probably by year’s end. As Peter Ha said so eloquently, I WANT THIS PHONE! It has a fullscreen touchscreen and fold-out QWERTY keyboard. Read More

    Facebook will accept an offer from either Microsoft or Google within the next 24 to 48 hours, according to the New York Post. Both companies are looking to sink between $750 million and $1.5 billion dollars into the site. The Post didn’t give odds or anything, but said that if Google wins it’ll look to undo the ad deal that Facebook struck with Microsoft earlier in the year. Read More

  • Sleeptracker Pro tracks your sleep like a pro

    There’s a really bad, really old joke for kids about a dork who takes a ruler to bed to see how long he sleeps. (Geddit!?) We are living, though, in the whiz-bang World of Tomorrow, and instead of rulers, we have watches. The Sleeptracker watch tracks your sleep habits automagically and, when it decides you’re at the best point to wake up, well, it wakes you up. The Sleeptracker… Read More

  • Sidekick LX review

    I have a thing for the iPhone, if you couldn’t tell. But before I drank the Kool-Aid, I was a Sidekick man. What does it mean to be a Sidekick man? It means you give up a lot to get great email and instant messaging services and few, if any, third-party applications and very little freedom. Huh. Kind of like the iPhone, except without the messaging. So when I got the LX last week, I… Read More

  • Copyright News: Oink and Tv-Links Down, Demonoid Back Up

    After a two-year investigation the torrent directory site Oink has been taken down in a series of raids and arrests in both The Netherlands and England. OiNK was an invitation-only private tracker that mostly dealt with members trading new release or pre-release albums, and primarily in FLAC (lossless) format.

    Blu-ray outsold HD DVD by a nearly 2-to-1 margin for the first nine months of the year, selling 2.6 million units to HD DVD’s 1.4 million. All that is bupkis now that Transformers is out, which sold more than 100,000 copies on its first day of release last week.

  • Apple: 250,000 unlocked iPhones in the wild

    Just how many iPhone have been unlocked by pesky AT&T haters? Apple’s guessing a quarter of a million, which comes out to one out of every six of the 1.4 million that have been sold. If you ask me, that sounds low. I know not one, not two, but four unlockers, and they’re the majority of the iPhone owners I know. Granted, the group I run with tends to be a little geekier than… Read More

  • You so silly, Apple!

    OMG! So Apple, like, totally made a blunderama today on its website ya’ll. If you surf over to the Apple Store and check out the product page for the iPod Touch sleeve.

Basically, it means Apple has confirmed the next models of the iPod Touch. Let… Read More

    Did you know that Imeem is the fastest-growing social site in the U.S (up 1,590 percent in monthly uniques).
