    Wall Street Journal opens the walled garden just a titch with BB application

    For those of you who read the WSJ for the articles, the new BlackBerry-compatable WSJ.com Mobile Reader will open up that nasty walled garden that is WSJ.com. The application will be free and most of the content will be open, although there are plans to lock it down in the near future. The application will draw in stories from WSJ.com, AllThingsD.com, and MarketWatch.com. You can track specific… Read More

  • WSJ says hotel rooms is hard!

    WSJ says hotel rooms is hard!

    In their inimitable, behind the walled garden style, the WSJ points out that hotel rooms are so complex that they’re getting impossible to operate. I’d write more, but Mr. Murdoch still hasn’t opened up some of the coolest content to online readers and, as a result, leaves us hanging. Maybe hotel rooms are too complex or maybe the WSJ’s readership is populated by morons and… Read More

  • WSJ: Cut undersea Internet cables due to sharks with laser beams on their heads

    [photopress:lasers_20080206161421.ark.png,full,left]The cable cutting thing in the Middle East is odd enough as it is, but it takes the Wall Street Journal to make it weirder. It found an expert to claim that the cables could have been cut by sharks with laser beams on their heads, but it was unlikely. Then it upped the ante by including an artist’s rendition of said sharks with laser beams… Read More

    Your cable box may be watching you

    WSJ is reporting that demographic data mining companies are starting to watch viewing patterns and may begin working with cable companies to pinpoint commercials to individuals and assess a commercial’s impact. Such logic makes sense, but advertisers these days are demanding more precision, and getting the technology to do it. During a two-week ad campaign last month, RE/MAX was able to find… Read More

    Ben Worthen of the WSJ: "Android will lead to the meltdown of corporate America; communism, alternate religions to follow"

    The gPhone is definitely creating a series of aftershocks in the journalism world. Two days after the big announcement, people are still talking, and it’s not all good. Even the stuffy WSJ gets into the act, calling the gPhone Android a tech nightmare waiting to happen. The argument goes that all this open source nonsense will raise unseen security risks in secure environments of many… Read More

    Mossberg reviews Gateway One, says it's no iMac

    Since Gateway announced the One, everyone and their cousin has known it’s a blatant copy of Apple’s iMac. Even Uncle Walt over at the Wall Street Journal knows damn well what Gateway and Dell are trying to do with their all-in-one computer systems. Unfortunately for Gateway, while imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the One doesn’t even come close to the iMac. In fact… Read More

    DirecTV To Offer Internet Over Power Lines

    Not a lot of info here, but the WSJ is reporting that DirecTV will FINALLY start offering broadband Internet access via power line distribution. The service is possible through a deal with Current Group, who provides broadband communications over power lines. How much would you pay for broadband ‘net from DirecTV? With $20 satellite TV available, this could make up part of a wicked package… Read More

    Keen vs. Weinberger: The Plot (by Amateurs) Against America

    Why is this man smiling? I was on my way to the outhouse with some print-outs of the WSJ opinion page — the newsprint version is too harsh — when I noticed an interview between Andrew Keen, writer of The Cult of the Amateur, and David Weinberger, author of Everything is Miscellaneous. Mr. Keen’s argument runs in the cranky old man watching Elvis on Ed Sullivan vein. He believes… Read More
