• Zork for the iPhone: You Were Eaten By a Grue

  • British Orchestra To Perform Concert In Second Life

    Yahoo! News really needs to get the facts straight. It’s currently saying that the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra will be playing the first professional concert in Second Life. Hmm, that’s funny. This Google search shows that Duran Duran and Suzanne Vega have already performed in-game. Seems like a bunch of crap, unless you don’t consider Duran Duran “professional… Read More

  • Moo Card Carrying Cases

    Say that three times fast! If you use Flickr, you’re probably familiar with Moo and the cute little biz cards they print up with your photos. Problem is, these cards are differently shaped than the standard business card Joe Blow (or Matt) hands you. So if you rely solely on Moo cards (or don’t), why not get a proper carrying case? These beautiful cases are available from Splatgirl… Read More

  • Care To Swamble On That?

    Las Vegas based (where else?) Swamble is a new mobile-focused website that lets users place and accept wagers on just about anything they can think of. It’s a bit like UK-based Gottabet. But U.S. residents can’t legally use Gottabet because it allows cash wagers. Swamble, for now, allows bets to be settled only with things other than cash. The site is optimized for mobile use.

  • 46 Million Nokia Batteries Waiting To Burn Your Face Off

    Nokia, you’ve got some explaining to do, rather, Matsushita has a bit of explaining to do over the 46 million batteries that are potential fire hazards.

  • iPhone Unlocked For Reals

    Alright, so this is what I think. I think that until one of you readers leaves a comment confirming this unlocking method, it’s just another stupid rumor. Some guy on some forums says that you can buy a Turbo SIM card and can program it to work on your network via the iPhone. So you get the SIM card, you get the iPhone unlocked. All the features too apparently. Sounds fishy. So… Read More

You also get a little bit of control… Read More

  • Australian Schools Remain Mobile: Students Jump Like Kangaroos with Joy

    As an avid reader of MobileCrunch, you’ll recall yesterday’s article on a possible ban of cell phones from all Australian public schools. Australia is a country that loves to ban things.
