  • Going Once, Twice… Last Chance to Catch Tickets for Friday's August Capital Outing and Real Time Stream CrunchUp

    The last batch of 150 tickets to attend our 4th annual summer outing on July 10 at August Capital are available now, courtesy of Eventbrite. Once these go, the only way in is to attend our Real-Time Stream CrunchUp (which we highly recommend). Every summer we have a party at August Capital, and it somehow seems to get more popular every year (is that possible?). Last year we preceded the… Read More

  • Review: Let's Tap for the Wii

    “So, I’m supposed to put my Wiimote on a box and bang on that to play Let’s Tap?” Yeah, that’s pretty much what I kept asking myself while I unwrapped Sega’s Let’s Tap for the Wii. By placing the Wii Remote on a box and tapping the surface, the Wiimote’s accelerometer miraculously picks up on the vibrations and translates them on-screen. It’s… Read More

  • Write That Down: Yahoo Search Pad Is About To Launch To The Public

  • James Tipple takes over as senior marketing director for Yahoo Europe

    Following the recent reshuffling of Yahoo’s global marketing executive team with the appointment of Elisa Steele as CMO, the hiring of Penny Baldwin as SVP of global integrated marketing and brand management and most recently the promotion of Kristof Fahy as international marketing VP, it was apparently time for Yahoo Europe to get a new marketing chief as well.

  • Garmin announces the BMW Motorrad Navigator IV GPS

    GPS’s are mostly uninteresting to me since I have little use for one in NYC, so this post is mostly for my brother and his BMW. It’s unclear what the “expanded relationship” is between Garmin and BMW Motorrad, but I’m pretty sure the announcement of the BMW Motorrad Navigator IV GPS is the extent of that whole business.

  • Review: Suunto t6c training watch

    I’ve been testing quite a few training watches of late. Mostly it’s because I’ve been trying to get into shape and the only thing that has really succeeded was getting huge stomach cramps and going on an IV in the ER (lost 8 pounds! Thanks Oprah!). Sickness is the ultimate weight loss regimen. That’s neither here nor there. So When Suunto sent me the t6c I was… Read More

  • Maybe The Palm Pre Isn't Selling So Well, After All

    My, how time flies in the tech world. It was only one month ago today that the Palm Pre launched to the public, giving users their first chance to try out WebOS first hand. Critical response to the device was generally positive, though much of this stemmed from the phone’s impressive operating system rather than the hardware itself. Still, it was exciting to see a genuinely… Read More
