• AMD's Eyefinity reviewed on video for your pleasure

    Some day, I too will have three identical monitors for gaming purposes. It’ll have to be in my game cave once I retire as an eccentric millionaire, though. Don’t have room for it here. That’s probably a good thing, though, since I also don’t have the money required, and besides that there are still a few quirks to be worked out. Not to mention the fact that the best… Read More

  • Apple, Psystar ask for summary judgemets, looking to avoid trial

    This Apple-Psystar business sure is hotting up! Both Apple and Psystar have asked for summary judgments based on what they believe to be What’s Going On. Such an action would avoid a pesky trial, which would necessarily costs both companies a whole lot of money. Read More

  • Insure.com Sells For $16 Million

    We recently wrote about dominance of number of .com domains and also noted that .com domain registrations were starting to turn around again after a poor 2008. It looks like values of .com domains may be rising as well. Insurance broker Insure.com has sold its name and Web site for a whopping $16 million. The insurance company’s name and URL, which was sold for 10 times more than it… Read More

  • Serious Sam HD's "Sunshine and Lollipops" trailer is hilarious

    If this is real, I’m gonna buy this game all over again, even if it means I have to pick up a 360. I love Serious Sam to an almost unhealthy degree, and this trailer makes the HD upgrade look even more awesome. In “Super Happy Fun Time” mode, the usual gibs and gore are replaced with stars, lollipops, and other pleasant things — not unlike Penny Arcade’s Gears… Read More

  • Is this my new laptop bag? The Chrome Buran

    I make no secret of my bag fetish. I love ’em. And what with Seattle winters being as cold and wet as a dog’s nose, I’ve been thinking for a while of getting a weather-resistant laptop bag. My Manhattan Portage is far from a sponge, but I still feel the need to hold my umbrella over it when it’s pouring. I’d rather have something a little more… like this. Read More

  • GooSync dumps its free service, goes premium only

    GooSync, the synchronisation service that lets you sync a mobile with Google Calendar, tasks and contacts using SyncML, has been going since 2007. But though it’s been running a premium and free version, it’s now dumping the latter entirely. Not an unsurprising move given the growth especially in mobile data use of apps like this, especially with the iPhone. The company said… Read More

  • Coull secures new funding for agency video tool

    It’s been a long old time since we checked in with Bristol based Coull, the application which helps brand owners create their own video portals and interactive video content. The startup has now has secured additional funding of £500,000 and hired Vaughan Denny the former head of rich media sales for Google Europe. Read More

  • Bookies think Modern Warfare 2 will be the best seller this year

    Anyone who has any doubts over what will be the best-selling video game this holiday season needs to check himself. It will absolutely be Modern Warfare 2. And while I can say that without anything real being put on the line, Irish bookie Paddy Power has given the game 8/13 odds as being the best-selling game. Read More

  • Google Wave Is Easier To Understand Than…

    As we’ve noted several times, Google Wave is a service that is fairly hard to explain. And for many people, it’s also hard to understand. That seems somewhat reasonable given that it’s trying to be a new form of communication and that it is still very early in its life span. But just how hard is it to understand? A new website brilliantly takes a… Read More

  • Crazy like a fox? Microsoft to release an ad-supported, introductory version of Office 2010

    Years ago, when Microsoft started pushing Internet Explorer, it enjoyed favorable adoption rates because, well, it’s already on there, so why not use it? (Law-breaking aside, of course!)That may be what Microsoft is thinking this time around with Office 2010. Redmond will allow OEMs to install Office Starter 2010 on brand new Windows 7 PCs. It will be a pared down version of Office, and… Read More

  • Sound & Vision goes ears-on the Lincoln MKT THX II sound system

    The days of automakers shoving the same OEM radio into all of their cars are long gone – at least for vehicles over $20k. Now if you drop enough coin, you can get a system that will rival your home theater gear. Sound & Vision recently spent sometime with the THX II sound system found in the Lincoln MKT crossover. Spoiler: your audiophile dad should like it. Read More

  • Android Gets Its Own Everything Search Box

    We wrote about Google’s Quick Search Box (QSB) a few months ago when the product was officially launched. We found the Twitter plug-in particularly interesting because QSB was able to turn into a Twitter app that let you post Tweets from the search box itself. Now, Google is launching a version of QSB for the Android Phone which provides similar functionality from the phone’s… Read More

  • Ticonderoga Antimicrobial Pencils: Say what?


    Two things I learned today: there is a blog dedicated to office supplies and on that blog is a set of Ticonderoga pencils with antimicrobial coating. Read More

  • Video: Windows Mobile Turns Twitter Into Party Boy

    Earlier this afternoon Fake Steve Jobs took one look at Microsoft’s new Windows Mobile commercial and wrote, “Dancing Twitter icons do not translate into cutting-edge advertising.” I don’t know. I think the commercial is pretty good, but only because it seems to me the strategy here was to turn Internet Explorer, Outlook, Microsoft Messenger and the others into Party… Read More

  • CrunchDeal: The Hitman collection for the PC

    Fan of the Hitman series? I am. Played the first one all the way through, killing off russian mobsters and blowing things up the whole way. Never made it through the other two though, got distracted by other games along the way. Read More

  • Review: Canon Color ImageClass MF8050Cn all-in-one printer

    There is a code to which a cowboy cleaves. He never shoots first, he’s always kind to ladies, and he never buys more printer than he can handle. While I can’t speak for those out on the lone prairie, I can report that the 52-pound ImageClass MF8050Cn by Canon may be the heaviest printer I’ve had in my office to date. This isn’t a printer for scrap-booking or… Read More

  • Reminder: We're giving away an HP Envy 13

    You heard about this, right? We’re giving away a brand new HP Envy 13 (our review) to one lucky reader. But we’re asking you to do something a little more than just leave a comment for this contest. It is, after all, a $1700, unreleased notebook. Check out this post for all the details. Good luck!

  • Peace! Obama v. The CrunchPad

    Oh-Bah-Mah! Hey, don’t get me wrong. I love President Obama as much as the Europeans do (we endorsed him way back when Clinton was still leading the primaries). But Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize is just…awesome. He’s been in office for nine months and hasn’t actually done anything at all yet. Except, maybe, increase the troop count in Afghanistan. For the record… Read More
