So Nosh founder Alex Cornell came up with and shot a promo video of this parody app that allows you to review anything in the world, “launching” it on October 3rd. This is doubly hilarious because a week after the world met Jotly, superfounder Kevin Rose launched Oink, which is also an app that allows you to review anything in the world EXCEPT IT’S REAL. And really noisy. → Read More
By now it is a common axiom of Silicon Valley small talk that good engineers are, at the moment, murder to come by. While the most prominent talent battles have thus far been between Facebook and Google, I was curious whether there was a specific smaller startup that everyone wanted to work at.
So I set up a GoPollGo poll asking, “If you could work for a startup, any startup, which one would it… → Read More
As we heard in April, Kevin Rose and former Digg designer Daniel Burka have teamed up to start Milk, a mobile app development lab in San Francisco. The company also raised $1.5 million from a number of all-star investors, including our own Michael Arrington. Now, we’ve just found a little more information on the first app that will be debuting from the incubator, Oink.
It appears from the site… → Read More
Kevin Rose has completed a hefty $1.5 million angel round for his new mobile development lab, which we first reported in March, Milk. Rose went for the more-is-more approach, pulling in a wide-syndicate of Valley elites, including TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington.
Other angels include Ron Conway, Tim Ferriss, Dave Morin, Philip Rosedale, Evan Williams, Shervin Pishevar, Joshua Schachter, Anthony… → Read More
Well by Silicon Valley standards, that certainly wasn’t a long “stealth” period. Just weeks after he quit Digg, Kevin Rose is announcing details of his new startup. Knowing Rose, I can tell why he’s so excited to get started. He’s constructed a company that plays perfectly to his strengths in the early days– but will test his weaknesses long term.
[photopress:badmilk.jpg,full,right] Scientists have developed a system that detects whether or not milk has gone sour. The system’s made up of two parts, a small metal ribbon that’s placed inside milk containers and an in-store detector. The detector is actually a magnetic field that causes the ribbon to vibrate. If it vibrates too slowly, then you can bet that the milk has gone all… → Read More
Oh man, this thing is all kinds of hotness. Featuring every amenity one could possibly hope for on a computer desk, the Milk is one of those rare blends of fashion and efficiency. It has a pneumatic lift, cable exits, organizer boxes and a file slot. It sort of reminds me of the Steelcase Airtouch with less pneumatics and more slots. No idea what this beast costs, but that probably doesn’t… → Read More
I rarely get caught up in quixotic Internet causes, but this is too good to pass up. It includes three things close to my heart: breasts and the milk therein, big pork, and, for some additional gadget-tasticness, you could add in some robot breast pumps or something. Plus this poor lady is from Columbus, my home town, so rock and roll. ANYWAY, she is a lactivist. Fair enough. Our son was… → Read More
