    Nobel Physics prize goes to creators of the CCD, fiber optic communications

    With all the hoopla lately about the Nobel Peace prize, you might have missed the fact that there was another Nobel prize given away this week: the Nobel Prize In Physics.

  • Nominate us for a Weblog Award? Please? Peter Ha will get rickets if we don't win

    Nominate us for a Weblog Award? Please? Peter Ha will get rickets if we don't win

    Peter Ha is walking because of one thing: hope. And modern medicine. So two things, but the hope thing is much more interesting. That’s why I’m asking that you to nominate CG in one of the categories, I’d recommend best tech blog, in the 2008 Weblogs Award. But don’t do it for me, friends. Do it for Peter Ha. When Peter Ha was little he had an advanced case of rickets… Read More

  • Golden Joystick award winners announced

    Golden Joystick award winners announced

    The Golden Joystick awards were handed out earlier today. (Golden Joystick is a British-based video game award show that, I think, has a little more credibility than Spike Video Game Award, primarily because it’s been around for 26 years.) Anyway, you can watch the entire broadcast online here. In the interest of preventing OMG SPOILERS, you’ll have to click through to see the list… Read More

  • "Stained," the first award-winning film to be shot in 4K on a Red One camera

    "Stained," the first award-winning film to be shot in 4K on a Red One camera

    I’ve got a friend working on a few things with his Red One that will probably win a few awards as well (hey man lets hang out btw), but this film, made for a 168-hour film contest, is apparently quite good. It’s about “a merciless society that segregates its undesirables” — in other words, America — and I understand it is very well-done, having won about… Read More

    CrunchGear Boooring Edition: Ask.com Wins Some Award

    I bet that you, me, and even Dupree all use Google for our web search. But when it comes to mobile phone-based searching, it’s really anyone’s game. Know why? Because I’m trying to make a call or send 300 texts within the next hour and I really don’t have time to use my phone for searching. In fact, chances are, if I actually have a WAP or Internet plan for my phone… Read More

    Apple’s second-generation iPod Shuffle has been incredibly well received. The design truly is wonderful and even made me pick up one this past Hanukkah for my friend.
