  • Nintendo Announces The Wii U At E3

    Nintendo Announces The Wii U At E3

    It was just yesterday that Nintendo unveiled the Wii U Gamepad, but today is the big announcement. Everybody welcome the Wii U. The new console, coupled with the Gamepad, will change gaming entirely, according to Nintendo: at its core, Wii U changes gaming, how you interact with your gaming friends, and it changes the way you enjoy your TV. That means Netflix and Hulu and Amazon Video… Read More

  • Audi Is Testing Out 4G LTE Connectivity In Its Cars, Courtesy Of Sierra Wireless

    Audi Is Testing Out 4G LTE Connectivity In Its Cars, Courtesy Of Sierra Wireless

    3G connectivity has been baked into cars for years now. Audi and Ford pioneered the technology, but times are a-changin’. The end-all be-all in wireless is no longer 3G as 4G LTE has taken the main stage. That said, Audi is once again positioning itself as a front-runner, bringing an LTE-capable infotainment system to its newest models with the help of Sierra Wireless. According to… Read More

  • Live From Nintendo’s 2012 E3 Keynote

    Live From Nintendo’s 2012 E3 Keynote

    The geeks have gathered, the music is loud, and paired with the graphics on the big screens, this place is basically a stoner’s wet dream. The doors of the Nokia Theater have opened, and as more nerds filter in, we’ve set up shop to bring you the event live. It’s safe to expect Wii U news, plenty of video game trailers, and maybe, just maybe, a hint of renewed strength in… Read More

  • The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate Is Cheap, Fast, And Eco-Friendly: Launches June 10 At AT&T

    The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate Is Cheap, Fast, And Eco-Friendly: Launches June 10 At AT&T

    LTE is a wonderful thing. It’s like seeing the ocean for the very first time, or taking off in a plane. The speed is brand new, and it’s beautiful. But unfortunately, most LTE smartphones tend to hang out on the expensive end of the shelf, and not everyone has $200-$300 to slap down for a phone, especially considering that none of it goes toward data and airtime. But Samsung is… Read More

  • Toshiba’s New 21:9 Widescreen Ultrabook Is All About Entertainment

    Toshiba’s New 21:9 Widescreen Ultrabook Is All About Entertainment

    Most laptops are all the same these days, with very few exceptions. But when those exceptions creep up, we can’t help but take a closer look. So is the case with Toshiba’s Satellite U845W, which oddly sports a display aspect ratio of 21:9 on a 14.4-inch display. Now, this means that movie buffs will be able to watch 2.35:1 movies on this puppy without any black bars. So… Read More

  • HTC Evo 4G LTE Review: I Can’t See Why Not

    HTC Evo 4G LTE Review: I Can’t See Why Not

    The Evo 4G LTE is a fine phone. There certainly aren’t any glaring issues: Sense has been considerably streamlined, and it’s really good at what it was made to do, which is entertain. The design language is a little loud, though maybe that’s what it takes to shake things up in the land of Android. (LAndroid.) But unlike the Evos that have come before it, this latest… Read More

  • The Other Side Of The Story: WhosHere vs. Who’s Near Me Live

    The Other Side Of The Story: WhosHere vs. Who’s Near Me Live

    You guys may remember a post on TechCrunch yesterday about a trademark spat between an entrepreneur named Brian Hamachek, who built an app called Who’s Near Me Live, and a Lightbank-backed startup called myRete, who built an app called WhosHere, strikingly similar in both functionality and name. The story unfolded that Hamachek had been bullied by WhosHere in the legal realm, despite… Read More

  • Holy Strategic Partnerships, Batman! A Brief History Of Nokia’s Batman Obsession

    Holy Strategic Partnerships, Batman! A Brief History Of Nokia’s Batman Obsession

    The Nokia Lumia 900 The Dark Knight Rises Edition handset has made its way on the interwebs recently and it’s nothing short of a beauty, with a black polycarbonate unibody frame and a laser-etched Batman logo across the back. Moreover, the phone — which is usually limited to either a black or white background and a handful of color themes like Nokia blue, teal, lime, mango, and… Read More

  • Fly Or Die: HTC Evo 4G LTE [TCTV]

    Fly Or Die: HTC Evo 4G LTE [TCTV]

    I’m smack dab in the middle of my HTC Evo 4G LTE review (the full review will be up tomorrow), but as I judge, I felt the need to bring John Biggs into the mix for a little Fly or Die. Now, John is notoriously hard on Android phones, namely because they’re all incredibly similar. The Evo 4G LTE is no different. I, on the other hand, think it brings some pretty strong design… Read More

  • OnSwipe Heads To The iPhone, Launches Layout Personalization With OnSwipe Draft

    OnSwipe Heads To The iPhone, Launches Layout Personalization With OnSwipe Draft

    OnSwipe’s been around for a little over a year, and since raised a total of $6 million in funding and launched content recommendations within its HTML5 tablet publishing network. But just as tablets are entering into mainstream territory, people are now entirely comfortable consuming long-form content on their even-smaller iPhone. That said, publishers who don’t want to build out… Read More

  • TC/Gadgets Webcast: WWDC Expectations, E3 Excitement, And The Death Of The Spec

    TC/Gadgets Webcast: WWDC Expectations, E3 Excitement, And The Death Of The Spec

    Quite a bit hangs on the horizon in the world of gadgets. E3 is right around the corner, as is WWDC (Apple’s Developer conference), and while hardware gets cooler and cooler, the spec does not. John, Matt and I discuss this and more in this week’s TC/Gadgets webcast. Read More

  • It’s A Post-PC World: Amazon Adds Laptops, Netbooks To Trade-In Program

    It’s A Post-PC World: Amazon Adds Laptops, Netbooks To Trade-In Program

    We’re living in a post-PC era, which means you likely have a few laptops/netbooks you’re looking to toss out in exchange for a shiny new mobile device. That said, Amazon’s trade-in program has recently included laptops, notebooks, and netbooks to its eligibility list. The process is pretty simple. Read More

  • Fruit Ninja Tops 300M+ Downloads After Two Years, Now Installed On 1/3 Of All U.S. iPhones

    Fruit Ninja Tops 300M+ Downloads After Two Years, Now Installed On 1/3 Of All U.S. iPhones

    It feels like it was just yesterday that I was downloading Fruit Ninja on a review unit of the iPad, swiping away at juicy watermelons and nearly-invisible kiwis. But the app has been around for a while — two years to be exact. And over the span of 24 months, Halfbrick’s deliciously addictive game has become so popular that it is now installed on 1/3 of the iPhones in the… Read More

  • MiniDates Schedules Real-Life (Legitimately) Blind Dates For You

    MiniDates Schedules Real-Life (Legitimately) Blind Dates For You

    Traditionally, dating sites like eHarmony and OkCupid follow the same format. You input your info, browse through all the thumbnails accompanied by A/S/L, and send out a barrage of flirty messages. Then you wait. Maybe you’re hit with some match-type options, but for the most part it’s a lot of browsing/messaging. But a new crop of online dating services have found interesting ways… Read More

  • HTC Evo 4G LTE Review: Head-To-Head With The iPhone 4S And The Galaxy Nexus

    HTC Evo 4G LTE Review: Head-To-Head With The iPhone 4S And The Galaxy Nexus

    The Evo 4G LTE is one of the best phones to land on Sprint shelves in a while, but that’s not to say it has no competition over at the Yellow carrier. The Galaxy Nexus has propped itself up as the Android phone to beat, while the iPhone 4S is available at the same price: $199. So what will it take to pass up the iPhone and the GalNex for the latest iteration of the Evo line? Read More

  • Nokia 808 Pureview Goes Live On Amazon’s UK Site, Available June 21

    Nokia 808 Pureview Goes Live On Amazon’s UK Site, Available June 21

    Much has been said about the Nokia Pureview 808 since its debut at MWC in February, but most recently the rumors have centered around delayed availability in the UK. The phone, and its 41-megapixel camera, weren’t expected to hit shelves across the pond until July. But according to Amazon’s UK site, the phone will be available on June 21 unlocked for £499.98 (US$778). Camera… Read More

  • Southeast Meetup Reminders: Savannah, Raleigh, And Charlotte Are Set, Atlanta Not Iffy [UPDATE!]

    Southeast Meetup Reminders: Savannah, Raleigh, And Charlotte Are Set, Atlanta Not Iffy [UPDATE!]

    If you’ve been keeping up at all, you should know that we’re planning a tour of the Southeast during the second week of July. We’re hitting all the hottest spots, including Savannah, Atlanta, Raleigh, and Charlotte (in that order), but we seem to be hitting a tiny bump in the south-bound road. As much as I’d love to hit up Mr. Armstrong for carte blanche on this… Read More

  • HTC Evo 4G LTE Review: Initial Impressions (Hands-On Photos)

    HTC Evo 4G LTE Review: Initial Impressions (Hands-On Photos)

    Evo. It’s one of the few HTC/Sprint models to make a splash in the mobile ocean, and after a brief stay at U.S. customs, the latest iteration should do the same. The Evo 4G LTE is the most powerful Evo to date, with a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM under the hood. But these specs are in no way novel, which means that quite a bit comes down to… Read More

Gone are the days of trotting over to a store sales associate and getting help with matching makeup or clothing colors. Now all it takes is a trip to Plum Perfect and a camera to get your style on.
