    Applications are now open for the TC Meetup + Pitch-off in Tel Aviv

    Tel Aviv, get ready! TC is coming to Israel at the end of June for our second TC Meetup + Pitch-off, and if last year is any indication, it’s going to be off the chain.

    About.com rebrands to Dotdash

    About.com, one of the internet’s oldest and most familiar websites, is about to fully fade to memory. The IAC-based company has been slowly dismantling its content from an all-in-one site to branded vertical sites, including Verywell (Health), Lifewire (Tech), The Balance (personal finance), The Spruce (home and food) and ThoughtCo (education). And today, About.com is ditching its old… Read More

  • Ballz is my new digital enemy and favorite mobile game

    Ballz is my new digital enemy and favorite mobile game

    I’ve played my fair share of iPhone games, but few have taken over my mind and life like Ballz. From Ketchapp, Ballz is about as simple as it is infuriating. It’s a mix between old-school Pong and Threes. The player starts with a single ball at the bottom of the screen and a number of blocks, each with a number, floating at the top of the screen. Pulling back with a finger and… Read More

    Token, with $2.5 million in funding, wants to help you find the perfect gift

    There is nothing better than giving someone the perfect gift. So it’s only natural that giving the wrong gift, for which you searched tirelessly and still came up short, is one of the worst feelings in the world. That’s where Token comes in. The startup, launching publicly today from the Human Ventures startup studio, wants to take on the challenge of gift-giving with a little… Read More

  • Air Tailor, an ERA-backed startup, offers on-demand clothing alterations

    Air Tailor, an ERA-backed startup, offers on-demand clothing alterations

    Almost nobody looks forward to going to the tailor. For one, you have to trek your clothes to and from this place — in metropolitan centers where walking/biking is a primary source of transportation, this becomes compounded. Plus, pricing isn’t always clear at local tailors and turnaround time is anyone’s guess. Enter Air Tailor, a new startup graduating from the… Read More

    WeWork’s office takeover continues with the launch of the Services Store

    WeWork, the co-working giant with more than 100,000 members, is today launching the WeWork Services store.

Much like your old-fashioned app store, WeWork Services Store gives members easy access to a broad suite of enterprise services, oftentimes… Read More

    Dairy might have snuck into Soylent 1.8 powder, prompting recall

    Soylent, the meal replacement drink/powder that frees people from the pesky task of eating so they can “use less, do more,” has recalled its Soylent 1.8 powder over the potential presence of dairy. Soylent 1.8 is specifically listed on the company’s website as “lactose-free.” Whoops. Read More

    Don’t get played by this spammy app like I did

    At my birthday party last week, my friend Ebby walked over and asked a group of us “What’s this Gather app all about?” I instantly felt a bit insecure. Of that particular group of friends, I should have been the one with a ready answer. I’m supposed to know about hot new apps. But Gather was a mystery. The next morning, hungover and recovering from the post-birthday… Read More

    Instagram Head of Product Kevin Weil to talk shop at Disrupt NY

    Instagram is killing it. The photo-sharing behemoth has topped 600 million users, with the most recent 100 million joining in the last year. Plus, the company now has more than 1 million active advertisers, building on Facebook’s already-dominant advertising business. But there is also a question of whether Instagram can continue iterating in a unique way? Or if it even needs… Read More

    TC is taking over Manhattan on Thursday!

    TC is taking over Manhattan this week with three simultaneous events on Thursday, culminating in the TC Trivia Throwdown. You could think of it as a block party, but with far more people staring into their iPhone screens and zero hotdogs. From 5:30 to 7:30, there will be three events across various Manhattan locations. The first is the TC INCLUDE Pitch Practice, in collaboration with the… Read More

    Blue Apron could deliver an IPO in 2017, but should it?

    Meal kit makers Blue Apron may be preparing to file for a 2017 IPO, according to Reuters. The report says that the food startup has hired bankers from Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Citigroup to this end. The whole thing has stirred up quite the conversation over here at TechCrunch, and we’ve been arguing amongst ourselves about the likelihood that the Blue Apron IPO happens soon, or… Read More

  • The TC Trivia Throwdown is next week in NYC!

    The TC Trivia Throwdown is next week in NYC!

    Not gonna lie: I love trivia. I’m a huge fan of any competitive activity, but trivia is definitely in my top three. If you don’t believe me, just check my DVR — it’s essentially this season of Survivor and dozens of episodes of Jeopardy. So I’m thrilled to spread the word about our upcoming TC Takes Manhattan event, which includes the Trivia Throwdown with… Read More
