    InstaThis Prints Out Your Instagram Photos On Wood Or Acrylic

    Printing out your Instagram photos isn’t all that revolutionary. We’ve seen countless companies do this: CanvasPop puts your Instagrams on Canvas, Printstagram turns them into calendars, minibooks, and stickers, while Kanvess will hook you up with 3×3-inch Instagram prints for 25 cents a pop. But a new service called InstaThis is taking it to a whole new level, letting… Read More

    A Digital Guide To A Sexy Valentine’s Day

    Depending on where you’re at in life, Valentine’s Day can be one of the best or worst days of the year. If you’re with someone, then just go ahead and tick off February 14th as one of those obligatory gift days alongside birthday, christmas, and anniversary. However, the chances that you’ll have a nice meal, a stiff drink, and get laid are quite high, so that’s… Read More

    You may remember Winston from its private beta launch back in August, but the DreamIt Ventures-backed startup is ready to officially launch its digital assistant app in the App Store. Winston is a bit like Siri, in that a smart digital voice gives you information direct from your smartphone. However, unlike Siri, Winston doesn’t listen. He just talks. (Typical man.) Read More

    Fly Or Die: BlackBerry Z10

    The BlackBerry Z10 running the new BB10 operating system is a pivotal phone for the company formerly known as RIM. It’s BlackBerry’s flagship all-touch device, and while it has fine specs and cool features, the phone may not be enough to save the beleaguered Waterloo-based company. To be clear, the BlackBerry Z10 is not a bad phone by any means. According to various sources… Read More

    Fashion GPS Breaks Into The Notoriously Tech-Averse Fashion Industry Just In Time For Fashion Week

    As you may well know from Twitter (or the inordinate amount of heels clacking through a snowy New York this morning), Fashion Week is underway. It’s like the Superbowl for designers, retailers, and everyone in between. But the fashion industry is ancient, and is thus quite averse to new technology of any kind. However, a company called FashionGPS has chipped its way into the world of… Read More

    Dogfish Accelerator Aims To Be The TechStars Of Indie Film

    Tech entrepreneurship isn’t all that different from artistry. Founders create and build a product that will hopefully be enjoyed by millions of users, just like artists create work for consumers.
