    Sorry about the delay, folks. I’m in Korea this week and find myself with zero Wi-Fi access.

  • Vivaty Brings The 3D Web to Your Browser, Starting With AIM and Facebook


    Move over Second Life. The 3D Web is starting to make inroads into the plain old browser. By “plain,” I mean only Internet Explorer on Windows machines—which for now is what you need to experience Vivaty Scenes. But at least it’s a start. (Firefox support on PCs is coming in a few weeks, but Mac support is being pushed off further). Vivaty Scenes is launching today… Read More

    Rumors of the Wii getting a color splash have been floating around for over a year and with every new ‘leak’ I begin to roll my eyes and care even less. This one, however, may hold a tiny bit of water as SKUs have a tendency not to change all too often. Decide for yourself after reading a portion of an e-mail from a Target employee. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Full home theater system, with 37-inch LCD HDTV: $629, no rebates

    I featured this buyer-made combo below in the Black Friday round-up, but it was so good I figured it deserved its own post so it wasn’t overlooked.
