    Candid Zune Pics Surface


    Zapruder-esque footage of the Zune is surfaced and Gizmodo seems to have dibs on all the goodness. It has magnetic earphones that stick together and comes in 150 different color combinations, which is why all of the images you’ll see will be in black and white until launch. No further info, but looks like the Gizzer has something up its sleeve later today. Exclusive Microsoft Zune… Read More

    NotForNoobs.com: More Viral Gimcrackery


    So, so silly. Gizmodo and others are positing that Microsoft’s latest hork-tastic viral marketing attempt – called NotForNoobs – is basically a way for them to sell high-end media hardware for the Zune. The key is that snake right there, which is the logo for Razer and which is working with Microsoft to rock out to some slow jams with their Razer keyboard with Zune dock. Read More

    Quite a bit of news out of Logitech these past few days. First they have a cavalcade of headsets and now these two speakers. The $299.99 Logitech AudioStation includes a built-in AM/FM radio and has a backlit, touch sensitive control panel and LCD street. It works with any iPod and includes a nice DSP for 3D sound.

  • Masterlock Bested?

    In the spirit of bump keys comes the padlock shiv. Using a small shard of metal extracted from an aluminum can, one can apparently pop most padlocks. I’ve heard about this before, but prior to this the only thing I’ve seen people manage to open with the shive was their flesh. These guys look to have gotten the process down successfully, but I wish the video had a better shot of… Read More

    Hear About PopSugar Yet?

    If you haven’t heard of San Francisco-based PopSugar yet, prepare yourself. You are going to start hearing about them a lot in the mainstream press. They are a blog network, and more recently a social network, targeting young, hip women (as well as a few guys that want to hang out with young, hip women). PopSugar was founded by husband-and-wife team Lisa and Brian Sugar. Lisa began… Read More

    The upgrades that Google have been testing to their IM/VOIP client, Google Talk, officially launched today. They include easy file transfer, voicemail and “music status”, which tells your friends what you are listening to. Most of these features require actual use of the Google Talk client (v. access via Jabber), which is only available for Windows machines. I’m not going to… Read More

  • Startups Given The Floor At Digital Hollywood

    I was Digital Hollywood today rubbing elbows with content creators and distributors in San Jose. On the agenda were several entrepreneurial forums where local startups pitched their companies to an audience of competitors, peers and venture capitalists. Given the words “Digital” and “Hollywood” can cover a lot of ground all of the companies generally fit the themes of… Read More

    Little Phatty by Moog


    The Little Phatty, by Moog, is a monophonic analog synthesizer with 100 user editable presets. It was also the last product that Bob Moog had any impact on.

  • YouTube and Google seek to monetize music

    Music was the impetus for the MySpace explosion and now YouTube and Google are both getting ready to leverage music as well. YouTube says it’s aiming to put every music video ever made on its site, a move that would take it further from both its genesis as a site for home made clips and a magnet for copyrighted works. EMI and Warner have confirmed that they are discussing the prospect… Read More

  • Kiko Flatlines

    Online calendering company Kiko.com has decided to call it quits and put the site up for auction on eBay. They are also offering to export or delete user accounts. It looks like the Deadpool may gain another member. The Massachusetts company was backed by Paul Graham’s YCombinator, offered some very cool features, an API and guts made of Ruby on Rails – but in the end it just… Read More

  • Glucose Metering Phone

    Glucose Metering Phone

    Not much to report on this right now, but it looks like it’s going to drop in the next few months and might be just the thing for those suffering diabetes. The system connects directly to your phone – or a specific phone – and it sends glucose readings to a doctor and to the user’s own monitoring system. An excellent melding of technology, design, and usability. Read More

    We’re pretty sure this is a joke, but take a look at this treadmill bike video. Yes, it’s a treadmill crossed with a bike, which is another entry for today’s theme of “things that don’t work well when mated together”. Treadmill Bike [via Gizmodo] Read More
