    StatCounter: Windows Phone Will Blow Past BlackBerry By November 2012

    At least three major research firms believe that Windows Phone will overtake iOS by 2015, but peering that far into the mobile ecosystem’s future is damn near impossible. We can, however, get an idea of what will be happening in the next few months, and StatCounter predicts that Windows Phone will overtake BlackBerry very soon. According to WMPowerUser, Microsoft’s mobile platform… Read More

  • iFixit: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Beats Out New iPad In Repairability Test

    iFixit: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Beats Out New iPad In Repairability Test

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is one of the more exciting tablets to be released in a while. In fact, it may even pose a small threat to the iPad, considering its top-notch specs and Ice Cream Sandwich-flavored operating system. But beauty is only skin deep, and it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? So let’s not judge this book by its cover: iFixit, the team that loves… Read More

    Leaked Tutorial Videos Show Clearest Image Of Motorola Droid Razr HD To Date

    The Droid Razr HD has been making its way around the rumor mill for quite some time. Back in April, we noticed that EXIF data from a Picasa picture indicating that the long-rumored handset was in pre-production, and leaked images in June confirmed it. But today a few tutorial videos were leaked onto the web (which have since been removed). Luckily, however, we have a few screen grabs that show… Read More

    Fly Or Die: Dejamor

    Subscription services are blowing up. You can have your razors, socks, or really anything delivered to your doorstep. But what about love (and not on a creepy way)? Dejamor — a new subscription service that essentially delivers his and hers boxes of romance once a month — is disrupting the dating space in a relatively original way. Read More

  • Layoffs At Plum District Point To Changes In Hyperlocal Deals Market

    Layoffs At Plum District Point To Changes In Hyperlocal Deals Market

    Plum District is a hyperlocal daily deals site that, by its own definition, was created “by Moms, for Moms.” Yet after extensive interviews with sources who worked and were terminated by the company, it’s clear that Plum District’s initial promise didn’t pan out. The company’s claim to fame at launch and during its various funding rounds totaling $30.6… Read More

  • LeapFrog’s LeapPad2 Kid-Friendly Tablet Sees Better Specs At The Same Price: $99

    LeapFrog’s LeapPad2 Kid-Friendly Tablet Sees Better Specs At The Same Price: $99

    It was over a year ago that we last crossed paths with LeapFrog’s LeapPad — a clever kid-friendly learning tablet that comes in under $100. Today, the second-generation LeapPad, or LeapPad2 as it were, has become available for the same price. However, it has seen some spec bumps that should offer longer play/learning time as well as more games stored. Read More

  • Sorry We Missed You: YC-Backed BufferBox Solves The Problem Of Missing Packages

    Sorry We Missed You: YC-Backed BufferBox Solves The Problem Of Missing Packages

    Living in Brooklyn, NY (the place where package deliveries go to die), I know better than anyone the struggle of missing a package, tracking it down, and then traveling however long it takes to recover said package. It’s so much of a pain, in fact, that I often give up the second I see that “Sorry we missed you” sticker. But a company fresh out of Y Combinator‘s Summer… Read More

  • The Honorable Judge Lucy Koh Accuses Apple’s Lawyer Of Smoking Crack

    The Honorable Judge Lucy Koh Accuses Apple’s Lawyer Of Smoking Crack

    The best part of the entire Apple-Samsung patent war has been Federal Judge Lucy Koh. She’s a smaller woman with straight, silk black hair, but she manages to make some of the wealthiest lawyers and highest level executives bow down. She’s an Alpha, and not without a touch of humor, either. In fact, today she asked Apple’s attorney if he was smoking crack. At least… Read More

  • Why Does Jack Dorsey Want To Be Just Like Steve Jobs?

    Why Does Jack Dorsey Want To Be Just Like Steve Jobs?

    There isn’t a CEO in the world who wouldn’t do well to try and emulate the late Steve Jobs in some way, shape or form. He was a visionary, and took Apple from a relatively low point to being one of the most successful companies in the history of the world. But trying to be him, or just like him, would be a vain endeavor. An hilarious tipster brought to our attention that Jack Dorsey… Read More

  • Back To School: How To Ace Taking Notes

    Back To School: How To Ace Taking Notes

    Back in the day, before the printing press made books a widely available commodity, students sat through class transcribing each and every word of a published work, as dictated by the teacher. We still take notes today, sure, but note-taking and lectures themselves have come a long way. So as you tie your shoes, zip up your backpack, and head off to your first day of college (or second, third… Read More

  • The Girl Who Couldn’t Nap And Said She Never Had To

    The Girl Who Couldn’t Nap And Said She Never Had To

    Once upon a time, in a land 3,000 miles away, Alexia wrote a post titled Arianna Wants To Put A Nap Room In TechCrunch HQ. Lol. It was in reference to NapQuest, a relatively awesome initiative at Aol/Huffington Post that includes a small room with a massage chair, a shelf full of books, complete with a full-fledged dentist-style reclining chair and a sleep sound machine. Along with some… Read More

    From The Disrupt Battlefield To Cloud Storage Phenomenon With $7M+ In Funding, Bitcasa Tells All

    If you don’t know about TechCrunch Disrupt finalist Bitcasa, you probably should. These are the same folks that blow Dropbox and SkyDrive out of the water, offering users not just a few gigabytes of cloud storage, but infinite storage for your PC or mobile device. After launching on the Disrupt stage in San Francisco last year, the company has seen modest success, including a $7… Read More

    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Hits Stores August 16: $499 For 16GB, $549 For 32GB

    As expected for quite a while, Samsung has just announced pricing and availability for the Galaxy Note 10.1. As you may have guessed, it’s a 10-inch WiFi tablet that includes the somewhat-pointless-but-perhaps-maybe-kind-of fun S-Pen, the same pressure-sensitive stylus you see with the Galaxy Note. Packing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with an update to Jelly Bean slotted for later… Read More

    Songza Music Streaming App Nabs 2 Million New Users Since June With More Than 50% Retention Rate

    You’ve heard me talk about Songza before. After launching on iPad, bringing Concierge to Android, and surpassing 1 million iOS downloads in 10 days, the company is still on a roll, announcing that more than 2 million users from the States and Canada have joined Songza since June 1st. But perhaps more impressive, of all the users that have ever used Songza (remember, the service launched… Read More

    HP Spins Off webOS Into A Brand New Company Called Gram; Mission Unknown

    Ever since HP killed off webOS hardware, the fate of the webOS GBU (general business unit) was as yet unknown. But according to a flyer that has floated out of the HP office, it would seem that the webOS group, along with Enyo and Cloud services, has branched away from the mother ship to start a brand new company: Gram. According to a flyer sent out to announce the new brand, Gram is… Read More

    Here’s A Sneak Preview Of The Pebble Smart Watch UI [Video]

    Following the disappointing news that the InPulse team — the clever folks that raised over $3 million on Kickstarter in a matter of days — wouldn’t bring their e-paper Pebble smart watch to consumers by September (as promised), the company has released a video with a sneak preview of the watch’s UI.

    IHS iSuppli: Apple Holds 70% Of The Tablet Market, Highest Market Share Since Q1 2011

    We all know the iPad is king of tablets, but it would appear that Apple has extended its lead in the slate market shipping approximately 70 percent of all tablets in the second quarter of this year. Unfortunately for Apple, Google’s recently released Nexus 7 tablet isn’t included in these numbers as it only started shipping after the April-June quarter was over. Up from a 58… Read More

  • Fly Or Die: Ploom Pax Botanical Vaporizer

    Fly Or Die: Ploom Pax Botanical Vaporizer

    For those of us who enjoy the occasional puff of sumptuous greenery, whether that’s flavored tobacco, leaves of mint, or good ol’ wacky tobacky, the Ploom Pax may be just what you’re looking for. It’s a botanical vaporizer, meaning that it doesn’t combust the materials you intend to smoke, but rather vaporizes them offering a much cleaner, less smelly smoking… Read More

    Ask Ziggy, Siri For Windows Phone, Closes $5 Million Funding Round To Expand To iOS, Android

    Ask Ziggy is the Windows Phone answer to Siri. It’s a virtual voice-powered assistant that can change feet to yards, offer you stock quotes, and answer life’s most difficult questions. And today, the company announced that they have received a brand new $ 5 million round of funding from “a publicly traded multinational corporation” whose name has not been disclosed. Read More

    Author Fights For His Book On The Internet After Slacking Student Pleads For A Quick Summary

    You never know who you’ll meet on the internet. Maybe it’s the Craigslist killer, or maybe it’s the author of a book you need to read for your summer school assignment. For Yahoo! user ♥ Idiot America ~ ϟƘƦІןן∑x ♥, the latter held true. He (lazily) took to Yahoo! Answers to have someone else review his summer reading book for him, The Boy Who Couldn’t Sleep… Read More
