  • Another Crazy Music Model

    eListeningPost is a new music service that allows artists to distribute their songs via a link on a website or by email. The file can be listened to up to five times on any one computer – meaning it can be forwarded to others and they can listen to it five times, too.

  • AskCity Launches. It's Cool.

    We’ve previously named Yahoo Maps the top maps application on the Internet. Tonight we’re not so sure. The new AskCity product, which combines Ask.com’s existing maps product (overhauled last February) with deep local content (information, reviews, etc.) and very good search, will make it our go to source for maps and local business information. Ask CEO Jim Lanzone gave us… Read More

  • Has The Exodus From Yahoo Begun?

    The Garlinghouse Memo last month signaled that change was coming at Yahoo. No senior execs have yet been shown the door, but some people just below those ranks are starting to leave. Michael Marquez, Yahoo’s Director of Corporate Development (shown with Flickr co-founder Caterina Fake) left Yahoo last Friday. He’ll be heading up Digital Strategy, Investments and Acquisitions, under… Read More

  • CNBC Relaunches: Heavy Focus on Video

  • Honda Embraces Solar Power, Listens to Grateful Dead, Smells of Patchouli

    Honda announced recently a full-scale entry into the solar energy market. It has gone as far as establishing a new division called Soltec, whose sole purpose is to tackle the endeavor. Soltec will work on developing the next generation in thin-film solar technology. The films will comprised of a compound made of copper, indium, gallium and selenium (CIGS).

  • Nokia 6086, Seamless UMA

    Aside from looking damned ugly, the Nokia 6086 actually provides a utility. In addition to being able to communicate over quad-band GSM circuits, it can seamlessly hop to UMA WLAN communications. So if you’re walking around and lose signal but there is 802.11 b/g WiFi available, the 6086 can latch onto that without you ever missing a word. It sounds dubious to me, but I’m willing… Read More

  • Stratospheric Broadband

    Led, by the University of York and funded by the EU’s Framework 6 R&D programmes, the CAPANINA project seeks to energise the development of high-alititude platforms (HAPs) for wireless broadband. For the uninitiated, HAPs are essentially tethered balloons and airships that provide broadband coverage across large urban and rural areas; an airborne rival to WiMAX and 3G if you will… Read More

  • PayPerPost Chronicles Their Amorality

    Florida based PayPerPost just launched a new site called RockStartup, which chronicles the birth (and I hope, ultimate failure) of their ethically-challenged startup. RockStartup seems to be heavily influenced by the movie Startup.com, which tracked Kaleil Tuzman and his team (and multiple girlfriends) through a web 1.0 startup. Some of the scenes in the first two episodes of RockStartup are… Read More

  • Do You Love or Hate Bose? Tell Us Why and Win a Prize!


    Bose is sort of the Hillary Clinton of tech — you either love them or hate them, and they’ve got lots of cash.

  • Kevin McDigg Lets Loose on iPhone, Blogosphere Goes Nuts

    You get a couple of beers into Kevin Rose during a podcast, and what happens? All Hell breaks loose, that’s what. Kevin has a little bit of “inside information” on the iPhone. A clearly nervous Kevin “spills the beans” on some of the iPhone’s features, including it’s small form factor, slide-out keyboard, 4GB and 8GB flash RAM sizes, and innovative… Read More

  • Boston Rails Getting Cellular Access


    Boston will soon have prevalent cellular access on the T Central Artery road tunnels (thanks Rob). Due to a deal struck with the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint Nextel and Cingular will all have a presence in the tunnel system. Which means Bostonians will soon be able to have awkward, cramped conversations during their commutes. This is relevant because up to… Read More

  • Apple iPhone Details From Kevin Rose

    I just caught this on CrunchGear: Digg’s Kevin Rose told me a few weeks ago that he had some good inside information on the upcoming iPhone, but he wouldn’t tell me anything. Well, after a couple of beers he spills the beans on Diggnation, and the clip is embedded below. According to Kevin there are two models, 4 GB and 8 GB, priced at $249 and $449. No word on whether they’ll… Read More

  • Nintendo Wii Sells Over 1,000,000 Units

    PlayStation 3 may have Cell processing and high definition graphics, but what it doesn’t have is more sales than Nintendo. The Nintendo Wii has sold over 1 million units in 2 weeks, selling more than double the amount of PS3s sold. Of course there aren’t nearly as many PlayStation 3s as there are Nintendo Wiis, but hey, that ain’t our problem. Nintendo Wii Sells Over… Read More
