  • Monster releases "universal" 3D glasses

    Although the press release, below, is full of garbage jargon, the bottom line is that Monster, in their infinite glory, has released a “universal” pair of RF 3D glasses. The glasses support almost any 3D TV kit and cost $249.95 for a starter kit with transmitter and and $169.95 per pair of standalone glasses. Why are these good? Well, presumably if you’re moving from 3D TV to… Read More

  • With 'youth' unemployment on the rise, PathMotion launches career-minded jobs site

    [UK] Does the UK really need another job hunting site? Apparently so, says PathMotion. The Paris-based startup is targeting students and young professionals in the UK with its mix of career guidance and job vacancies. And considering that ‘youth’ unemployment in Britain is worryingly high, the site’s launch looks well timed, although it’s curious that a French company… Read More

  • Does Monster's Acquisition Of Yahoo! HotJobs Matter If The Internet Is The Job Board?

    (Editor’s note: Centralized Web job boards are in decline. Dan Finnigan, CEO of Jobvite, explains why in this guest post. Previously, he was Senior VP at Yahoo and GM of HotJobs, and before that a Director on CareerBuilder’s Board as CEO of Knight Ridder Digital. Monster’s acquisition of Yahoo HotJobs signals a significant landscape change for a job board industry… Read More

  • Job Boards Are So Over. TalentSeekr Targets And Recruits Through Ads Instead.

    Even though unemployment is at the highest levels in a decade, companies are still finding it difficult to find the best qualified candidates to fill the positions that are available. The reason for that is because more often than not, the best qualified candidates are already employed and not necessarily looking for new jobs. Certainly not on job boards like Monster.com or HotJobs. So if… Read More

  • Monster 'BFC' officially takes energy drinks too far

    In the early days of energy drinks, the tiny 8-ounce Red Bull can was the only game in town. Then somewhere along the line, someone decided to double the can size to 16 ounces. Great — twice the punch for the same price. Then came the 24-ounce energy drink can. A little excessive, sure, but sometimes you need a little extra, extra pick-me-up and a big 24-ounce can is always good for… Read More

  • Review: Monster Turbine in-ear speakers

    Now that I’ve had a couple days with the Turbines, I think it’s time for a full review. I’m sad to say that my initial praise may have been premature having listened to a few CDs (I had to open up moving boxes in my apt to find one) and comparing these against my Shure SCL3s and Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pros. I also brought in my secret weapon Dave R. to consult. He’s… Read More

  • Monster going audiophile, intros the Turbine in-ear speakers

    It’s become apparent that Monster is getting into the high-end audiophile game with the launch of the Beats earlier in the year and now the in-ear Turbine ‘speakers’. I’ve only had an hour or two to check them out, but I can honestly say that I’m pleasantly surprised at the performance of the Turbines thus far. I’ve always been a proponent that you… Read More

  • Wireless HDMI devices delayed six months [UPDATE]

    It’s gonna be a long, cold, dark, cord-filled winter for those of you waiting for wireless HDMI devices from the likes of Belkin (FlyWire shown above) and Monster Cable. Electronic House is reporting that the technology’s not quite there yet. An unidentified owner of an A/V store in Manhattan told EH the following: “HDMI is not perfected yet. I was eagerly awaiting… Read More

  • Review: Beats by Dr. Dre

    Writing anything about Monster is fraught with peril. Everyone knows the traditional lime: Monster preys on morons. They sell expensive cables to people who don’t need them and they made a mint doing this over and over again. But this is a new era. Wireless is soon going to eat Monster Cable’s lunch and unless they can diversify – and convince the jaded public that… Read More
