    At 36,007 feet up in the air, somewhere between Alaska and Russia, with the Aleutian Islands someplace below us, my child and I are sharing a blissful moment.

  • These HBO Go Ads Are Hilarious

    These HBO Go Ads Are Hilarious

    My colleagues wrote about Apple ads yesterday. So when I stumbled across these HBO Go ads, I thought that you, dear TechCrunch readers, also deserve to see these seven videos. In them, you see teenagers sitting on a couch and watching HBO shows, such as Game of Thrones, True Detective or Girls. But their parents are lingering in the background. Everybody remembers those awkward moments watching… Read More

    Valar Morghulis, Or, ‘Why I Don’t Care That HBO GO Is On Apple TV’

    Apple TV got HBO Go and Watch ESPN and some other content yesterday. Cool. Am I supposed to care? It’s asinine that the technology for producing quality content is so incredible (Blackwater Bay, anyone?) and yet we still have to have decades-old technology to access it. Read More

    Citing “The Math,” HBO’s Alison Moore Says There Are Still No Plans For Standalone HBO GO In The U.S.

    Those lucky folks in the Nordics just recently got access to an on-demand, over-the-top HBO service that bears more than a passing resemblance to HBO GO, but we here in the States haven’t been quite as fortunate.

    The Top 20 iPhone And iPad Apps of 2011

    It’s telling that Apple chose an app that debuted more than 14 months ago, Instagram, as its “iPhone App of the Year” for 2011.

From social magazines to music discovery apps to console-quality games that players can hold in the palms of their hands, there… Read More
