  • Fly Or Die: Amazon Kindle Fire HD

    Fly Or Die: Amazon Kindle Fire HD

    The Kindle Fire HD is a big deal. Big. It has rather excellent specs — a 1280×800 7-inch display, TI OMAP processor, dual stereo speakers, and dual-antennae Wifi (with MIMO) — and it comes at a ridiculously low price: $199. Read More

    Mark Zuckerberg: “A Facebook Phone Just Doesn’t Make Any Sense”

    “I’ve been bugging you about Facebook phone for months,” said Michael Arrington in Mark Zuckerberg’s first interview since the Facebook IPO. “You say there’s nothing, but I don’t believe you.” But Zuck hasn’t budged at all. “That’s always been the wrong strategy for us,” he explained. “It’s a juicy thing to… Read More

    Viber Adds Support For S40, Symbian And Bada After Hitting 100M Users

    Viber has essentially been a smash hit right from its conception. The company hit 50 million registered users in February of last year, extending that to 70 million by May. But today marks one of the company’s greatest milestones: Viber has just surpassed 100 million registered users. To celebrate, and continue to fuel that momentum, Viber is releasing new features and various… Read More

  • Undrip Takes All The Nonsense Out Of Your Social Feeds

    Undrip Takes All The Nonsense Out Of Your Social Feeds

    If you’re reading this article, chances are you’re pretty well connected, at least in terms of your various social networks. But it can be overwhelming: there’s Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Instagram. And those are just the major leaguers. But Undrip, which has just launched out of private beta on our Disrupt stage, is ready to clear out all of the clutter to show you… Read More

  • Famo.us Is A Gaming Engine For 3D Interfaces

    Famo.us Is A Gaming Engine For 3D Interfaces

    Famo.us, launching today at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco and brought to you by the same guy who founded PowerSet (Steve Newcomb), lets developers write fully 3D apps without having to depend on complex programming tricks or compiled apps. It’s a lot like the interfaces you see in Iron Man or Minority Report, and it works on nearly any platform, including desktops, Android, and… Read More

    Startup Alley Day 1: From Online Marketplaces To App Discovery To Sports Broadcasting

    Sure, Disrupt is jam-packed with tech celebs, VCs, and the drama of the Startup Battlefield. But there’s perhaps an even more precious gem lying within the massive venue: Startup Alley. This year in San Francisco, we have more than 160 Startup Alley companies each day, with companies from Brazil, Israel, South Korea, Chile, Argentina, and even Vietnam.

    Jack Dorsey: “A Founder Is Not A Job, It’s A Role”

    Jack Dorsey never wanted to be an entrepreneur. But you can’t predict your life, and we’ve just learned from his keynote speech that you can’t predict the path of a company either. “A founder is not a job,” he explained. “It’s a role. It’s an attitude. It’s something that can happen again and again and again.” “A lot of people… Read More

  • The Hackathon Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Sleep

    The Hackathon Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Sleep

    The Hackathon never sleeps, and neither do the hackers. Just like the Disrupt NY 2012 Hackathon, and the San Francisco Hackathon before it, this year’s bunch of coders are up and at ’em, ready to disrupt… well, anything. Surveying the San Francisco Design Center, you’ll find a lot of empty red bull cans, beer bottles, and bags of chips. It’s not necessarily the… Read More

    The Disrupt SF 2012 Hackathon Is On Like Donkey Kong

Each hacker and/or team gets 24 hours to develop and product… Read More

  • Preparation For Apple’s iPhone Event Is Underway

    Preparation For Apple’s iPhone Event Is Underway

    If you’ve been paying attention at all, you know that the next iPhone is right around the corner. Apple has sent out invites to a September 12 event — that’s on Wednesday, by the way — just as we’ve long expected. The event is to be held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, which just so happens to be located right next to the hotel we’re staying at… Read More

  • Siri, Why Are You Having Trouble Connecting?

    Siri, Why Are You Having Trouble Connecting?

    It would appear that Siri is down. We’ve tested five iPhone 4S models, all of which are running iOS 5.1. One of the iPhones in the TechCrunch office is running iOS 6, and Siri seems to be working fine on the newer OS. Twitter confirms, and there are some pretty funny tweets coming out of this very serious crisis. To be fair, Siri doesn’t work that well anyway, even when… Read More

    From Disrupt Runner-Up To $13 Million In Funding, BillGuard Tells All

    BillGuard has come a long way in a short time. The company launched its SaaS product, which automatically scans your credit card statements for unwanted and fraudulent charges, in May of 2011 at Disrupt. Yet, BillGuard has since saved its users nearly $1 million in unwanted or fraudulent charges in just over a year. I sat down with founder and CEO Yaron Samid to discuss the path from Disrupt… Read More

On almost every count, Amazon delivered, and at a wonderful price point. After getting up close and personal with the 7-inch Fire HD, the first thing you notice is the display.

    Amazon Officially Announces The New Kindle Paperwhite: “Paperwhite” Display, Frontlighting, 8 Week Battery, And 212 PPI

    There’s plenty to talk about here at Amazon’s Los Angeles press conference. The Kindle Fire 2 is obviously a hot topic of discussion, but lest you forget the product that started it all: The Kindle.

    Live From Amazon’s 2012 Event: Fire It Up!

    From outside a massive hanger in Los Angeles, California, grown men and women — members of the press — just literally ran into the venue for Amazon’s special 2012 press event. A next-generation Fire is expected, along with updated Kindle ereaders and a whole lot of content deals. We even caught wind of a new serialized fiction deal just last night, so expect to hear quite a bit. Read More

    Hands-On With The Droid Razr M: The Reversal Of ‘Big Phone Syndrome’ Feels Wonderful

    We’re here at the Motorola event in New York, and I just got my hands on the Droid Razr M, the “little big secret” that Motorola’s been amping up for. As you’d expect for a phone of this size, it feels excellent in the hand, with a 4.3-inch qHD display. As I’ve said over and over again, this screen size is the sweet spot. The most impressive thing about… Read More
