    Google Accounts were integrated into dodgeball.com — a company Google acquired back in May 2005 that allows users with cell phones to notify their friends via text messages (SMS) as to what bar or restaurant they currently are at (and thus where their friends can meet them for a drink).

  • Ypsilon Office Chair

    The boys at Gadgetizer wrote in about a scoop on a new product that could start turning up in swank offices everywhere.

  • Neoware Thin Client Laptops: What Hard drive?

    Hard drives are for suckers. Ok, maybe not, but they are easily compromised should your laptop be stolen or lost. While for most of us it’s not a big deal for some thief to find our “ScarJo_Naked_mov.avi” files, it’s something large corporations live and die by. The loss of laptops containing sensitive data is in the news from time to time, and, as usual, you… Read More

  • Samsung's Ultra-Thin TV

    With Samsung, thin is in. Its phones continue to get thinner, but yet they deny any problem. Typical. Now it’s taking its anorexic philosophy to the world of television with its new AMOLED series flat panels. By using a hybrid of OLED and active matrix LCD technologies, the new screens eliminate the need for a backlight, meaning the largest (and heaviest) part of the screen is gone. Read More

  • Gears of War Banned In Germany

    The highly anticipated Xbox 360 game Gears of War has officially been banned in Germany. The USK (Germany’s ESRB), has decided that the game is too violent for the German market. Epic and Microsoft both stated that changing the game to be any less violent would cause it too lose many of its essential gameplay elements. I have to agree with Microsoft on this one, Gears of War is a… Read More

  • Sony's New 4k Projector Comes Up Short


    We’re all about 4k, the promised Utopian resolution of the near ultra-hi-def future. At display sizes around 292-inches at 96DPI, you really won’t need anything much larger (yeah, right). Sony, lovers of this next-gen technology, has just dropped a new projector for the 4k crowd, using its new SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display, or Voodoo to us), giving it a resolution of 4,096… Read More

  • Spike the Vote: Another Cancer Aimed at Digg

    A link on the front page of Digg means tens of thousands of visitors to your site, so it’s no surprise that people are setting up systems to game it. The newest attempt is called Spike the Vote. It’s easy to wag your finger at them and say “shame on you,” but Digg is going to have to deal with threats like this if the content on its front page is going to mean… Read More

  • LG Adds Leather to New TV Phones

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/TV. You read that correctly. We like the LG checker keypad thing it's been doing, and the fact that the phone comes wrapped in your choice of leather coverings, complete with pockets and other wallety things. The phone itself is pretty nice too, using a DMB tuner to pick up that fancy digital TV they have all over Korea. Read More

  • Panasonic Plays Russian Nesting Dolls with microSD Cards

    We’ve got a cellphone, a GPS unit, and a Palm, all of which use different sized SD cards. The phone uses microSD, the GPS unit, which has a big screen for photo playback, uses miniSD, and the Palm uses standard SD. Even though they’re all SD, you can’t share them without buying fancy adapters. Panasonic has solved our problem by packaging its new microSD cards with both a… Read More
