• Cambridge SoundWorks Radio CD 745i Review

    iPod clock radios are a dime a dozen, but renowned speaker maker Cambridge SoundWorks supercharged theirs with beefy sound and a built-in CD player. The all-in-one CSW Radio CD 745i has sophisticated looks (in black or white), thanks to a bevy of on-board controls. We got our hands on one and nightstand-tested it for a week, and it was no letdown. The features, compactness, sound, and… Read More

  • Silicon Valley Could Use A Downturn Right About Now

    Silicon Valley is paradise for geeks, and people flock here from all over the world to be part of something very special. When I speak at events here one thing I often do is ask people in the audience to raise their hand if they live in Silicon Valley. Usually 80+% of the people raise their hand. I then ask them to leave their hand up if they were actually born here. Only a few hands ever… Read More

  • Legless Chihuahuas Prove Google Hot Trends Not So Hot

    Google has launched a new addition to its growing lineup of…well everything, Google Hot Trends. Google Trends takes the idea behind Google Zeitgeist to the next level.

The data though… Read More

  • Fare Tracker Yapta Launches Public Beta

    Yapta, which went into private beta a month ago, had a bad day today. The company’s Pioneer Square office in Seattle caught fire this morning. CEO Tom Romary’s car got a flat tire. And, unsurprisingly, it rained. But Yapta is celebrating anyway, because they just launched the public beta of the service. The fire was a problem, Romary says. But they were able to move all employees… Read More

  • Panasonic Lumix FX100 Goes Buckwild With 12-megapixels

    Panasonic unveiled the latest Lumix today and it’s a whopper. The FX100 may be small in size, but the 12-megapixel, 28mm wide-angle Leica DC lens with 3.6x optical zoom and f/2.8 tells a different story. A cool feature I like is the High-Speed Burst shooting mode that picks off eight frames per second. It also boasts the ability to snap HD pictures and records 720p video at 15 FPS. Read More

The “spy drone” is capable of taking images from 500m above, can… Read More

The market prices of the LCD panels, which are at the heart of any LCD TV, have hit bottom and are starting a rebound, meaning they’re not likely to get any cheaper. This… Read More

  • Apple Prepped to Kill Off 17-Inch iMac?

    Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: Apple, as we know the company today, can trace it’s recent successes (and, truly, failures) to one single model of Macintosh: the iMac. When the inexpensive all-in-one was introduced in 1998, shockwaves of lust were felt across the PC ecosphere. And with the Internet blossoming, this was the perfect time to market to first-time computer buyers. Read More

  • MyBlogLog Back On TechCrunch

    We’ve re-embedded MyBlogLog onto TechCrunch – we removed it a few months ago due to spam and reliability concerns. After repeated promises by founder Eric Marcoullier and Yahoo (which acquired the company) that the service was stable and spam was under control, we’ve decided to give it another try. I like the widget, which shows recent visitors to the site and builds out… Read More

  • Windows Vista SP1 Coming Soon

    Are you ready for some Vista Service Pack 1 hotness? It does, in fact, exist, folks. So don’t think I’ve gone crazy. At the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference a PC was shown running the service pack, “Windows Build 6001 Service Pack 1, v113.”, and the crowd went absolutely buck wild. I think. In any case, the service pack has been spotted and now we wait for… Read More

  • Lawmaker Votes for Talking-While-Driving Law, Breaks Law, Causes Accident, Makes Us Chuckle a Little Bit

    We’re filing this one under “cruel, humorous irony.” State Senator Carole Migden is a crusader for public safety, it would seem, voting for a measure to fine people for talking on their cellphones while driving, because that’s far more dangerous than, say, tuning the radio or eating, explaining why those activities are still perfectly legal. Imagine how red-faced she… Read More
