• Cross-Platform OpenOffice Worm: Scary Proof of Concept

    A new worm reported by Symantec called “BadBunny” infects computers after the user opens a .odg file. Although the chance of becoming infected by BadBunny is low, its unique cross-platform capabilities put any computer user at risk. Also, the article bashes Macs slightly… I think we all need a little of that after a day at WWDC. OpenOffice worm BadBunny hops across… Read More

  • Is Apple Telling You to Vote Democrat in iPhone Demos!?

    While it’s no secret that Steve Jobs is a lefty, lost in today’s WWDC hubbub of what did and didn’t happen is the idea that Apple might be planting viral lefty political messages on its Website. Case in point is the “Internet Device” demonstration for the iPhone. Read More

  • ESPN Acquires CricInfo

    Leading cricket portal Cricinfo has been acquired by ESPN. The site is considered by many to be the online bible for cricket. Although not popular in North America, Cricket has an audience in the billions with fanatical support across the former British Empire. The purchase by ESPN is said to be part of the push by the cable sports network to broaden its appeal outside of the United… Read More

  • Contest: End The Scourge of Pater Obsoletis, Win a 42-Inch TV

    UPDATE: We’re now voting here for the winner. Please visit and vote! Get out your Sally Struthers wigs, readers, because we’re going to end a major blight on our fair land: Pater Obsoletis. Pater Obsoletis is a wasting brain disease that encourages fathers, fathers to be, and men in general to own, purchase, and use devices which are vastly out of date. We want to bring this problem… Read More

  • Opie & Anthony Return To XM Friday; XM Waives Reactivation Fee

    Radio bad boys Opie & Anthony will return to the XM Satellite Radio airwaves this Friday, June 15, at 6 a.m. XM suspended the duo last month after all of the hullabaloo generated after they aired a homeless man’s offensive ramblings. Now, if you recall, a large number of the radio show’s fans protested XM’s decision by, among other things, canceling their XM service… Read More

  • Help-Key: What You'll Use in Leopard

    We learned a lot today about Apple’s up-and-coming OS, Leopard. That being said, nothing we learned was really Earth-shattering. All the rumors of built-in Windows integration, teleportation rays and disease curing were bunk. In fact, almost nothing that was rumored came to fruition, and that’s the rub: there just wasn’t much new stuff announced. That doesn’t mean… Read More

  • WWDC 07: iPhone's 6PM Launch Just Jobs Being Goofy

    Earlier today, during his WWDC 07 Keynote address, Steve Jobs said that the iPhone would be released on June 29, which “is 18 days from now. At, uh, 6PM.” This was said to a chuckle. I’m afraid he was joking, folks. He seemed very “off the prompter” when he said it, as a light-hearted aside. Look for the iPhone to be available when your local AT&T or Apple… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Dropping Four New Phones on June 14th

    Looks like S-E is finally releasing the Sofia and the Shinobu, along with two others, in an effort to sew up the musicphone market. I’m going to say “boooring, Sidney, boooring” to this, but someone out there I’m sure cares. Read More

  • Salon On iPhone's 3rd Party Apps: More Questions Than Answers

    “Any questions?” “Yeah, aren’t these just tarted-up Widgets?” “Ummm…” Farhad Manjoo at Salon posted a fairly cogent analysis of the Web 2.0/Safari/No SDK style of programming that the iPhone and, presumably OS X, will now support. He’s basically asking all the pertinent questions, but probably won’t get answers until October: Could… Read More

  • Piracy on Facebook is as Easy as Mosoto Remix

    Mosoto launched their peer-to-peer file swapping and chatting application using the Facebook API back in February. It was one of the best executed programs using the API when they launched. Now they’re back and integrated into the Facebook platform, making it easy to catch up with your friends on the newsfeed and snatch their music. Mosoto Remix adds a little widget on your profile… Read More

  • Crumpler Beer For Bags, It's On Like Donkey Kong

    Photo courtesy of Nifer Don’t forget, folks, that Crumpler’s Beer For Bags event is going on in NYC. It’s quite simple, you see: bring in beer for a sweet ass bag and then come back at the end of the week and drink that beer. Simple, right? 45 Spring Street and 49 8th Avenue is where it’s going down. Read More

  • Wildy Wrong Rumors Killed WWDC

    “It turns out we were almost all wrong.” A concerned public servant once said about the existence of illicit weapons in a certain Middle Eastern country. That same quote now applies to Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference 2007, where nearly every single rumor that circulated around the Internet was completely wrong. No new iMacs; no new iPods; the 17-inch iMac and… Read More

  • OpenDNS Now Keeps Babies Safe From Boobies

    Fans of OpenDNS — everyone at CG uses it, I know that much — will now be able to block pornographic sites with the click of a button. The service uses St. Bernard’s iGuard, a service that apparently scours the web for PR()N so you don’t have to. While this might rankle some folks at work, it could be a great way to make sure junior stops with the underpants party at… Read More

  • Safari 3 For Windows First Look

    Now that WWDC is over, it’s time to check out the aftermath. We grabbed Safari and were hit, quite unsurprisingly, with some initial errors. Considering Safari for Windows is still in its beta release, most of these problems will eventually be ironed out. Read More

  • PayPerPost Raises $7 million More

    Controversial pay-per-post startup PayPerPost has raised $7 million in a second round of financing, bringing their total raised capital to just over $10 million. Like their previous round from last October the financing was led by Draper Fisher Jurvetson, with participation from Inflexion Partners and Village Ventures. New investor DFJ Gotham, a fund affiliated with Draper Fisher Jurvetson… Read More

  • TeleNav Adds A Bit O' Social Networking To Its Service

    With all the Apple happenings, or lack thereof, it’s probably not the best day to launch a new version of a mobile-device app, but not everyone’s world revolves around Apple. TeleNav today launched its latest version of TeleNav GPS Navigator (v. 5.2), which adds some cool social-networking tools that take advantage of both the platform (your cell phone) and TeleNav’s… Read More

  • Data Loss At Google Reader

    It looks like Google has a major problem with their Google Reader product today. Reports are flying on blogs, twitter and elsewhere that feeds have been deleted from people’s accounts. We have an email in to Google PR for comment – Google representatives are responding on this Google Groups thread discussing the problem. Some users are now reporting that their feed subscriptions… Read More

  • Apple Store Updated With Nothing

    Ummm…WTF?!? Looks like the Apple site was tweaked with a nice new design, but nothing new in the Apple Store. Is anyone else left with a sense of nothingness from the keynote? We’ll have to take solace in the Safari 3 Public Beta. Woohoo…more like boohoo. *Cries in the corner* Read More

    Our monkeys at WWDC have just reported back a series of cool features in Apples OSX Leopard, which is slated for release in October. Without further ado, here’s the list in no specific order: Read More
