• Semi-confirmed: Wal-Mart to sell the iPhone this month

    Wal-Mart iPhone rumors have been swirling for a while now, but the rumor is no more – hopefully. The gigantic, behemoth, monstrous, small-town killing retailer will sell the iPhone this month according to a Bloomberg and Reuters report. Exact details aren’t available like launch date, staffing, and if a 4GB model will be sold. Eh, we’ll find out all those details shortly. Read More

  • Takara Tomy uses pooping camera in TV commercial

    Takara Tomy’s digital camera with built-in Zink printer is out now in Japan (for $350) and having held the thing in my hand yesterday, I can say it’s very bulky. So be ready for a minor disappointment when the camera hits American stores (probably in April/May next year). Takara Tomy is brave enough to export the camera but they will not have the guts to air the Japanese commercial… Read More

  • TiVo Netflix HD hands-on

    The TiVo Fall update that dropped yesterday had a little somethin-somthin hidden under the hood. Netflix is now up and ready; HD content included. So far I’m impressed. The interface is TiVo-familiar. High-def content queues up almost instantly verses the Xbox’s near-almost present lag. Picture quality is good- not great, but good. Three things though, TiVo.

  • Bonjour, FriendFeed, Que Tal?

    As a European, I’m always happy to see web companies translate their interfaces in other languages besides English. It’s common business sense, since a lot of potential users simply won’t even take a look if the application is not available in their local tongue, and they certainly won’t stay long when all their local friends start trying out a competing service that is.

    Redanyway is a young startup out of India that aims to provide an alternate way to manage your ‘centralized me’ where your personal website or blog is your profile page outside of any walled gardens.

  • Two Months After Release, Brightcove Announces Nearly 100 API Partners

    Web video platform Brightcove has so many API partners just two months after the release of Brightcove 3 that it had to create an alliance to contain them all. Actually, the Brightcove Alliance is more of a marketing exercise to acknowledge and promote its API partners. Nevertheless, nearly 100 companies (including Yahoo, AOL, DoubleClick, Veoh, Metacafe, Slide, Meebo, Blinkx, Sprout… Read More

  • Super Handy Visual Speed Dialer For The iPhone

    This may be my new favorite iPhone application – Visual Dial lets you add a picture of a friend to the iPhone home page (as if it were an application). Click the picture and it acts like a visual speed dialer to that person. Simple. And very useful. The video sort of says it all. The application is still under review by Apple, we’ll update when it becomes available. They are letting… Read More

  • Microsoft geeks it up with retro tees

    There isn’t a better way to proclaim your love for everything Microsoft than a faux 80’s t-shirt. These shirts are part of the same campaign that encouraged everyone to show their creepy, YouTube side and state that they are a PC. Too bad they aren’t official Microsoft digs otherwise they might be a hit with nerdy hipsters. Official name: softwear. Lame. Read More

What you’re going to do is rip it apart and make a sweet-ass laser pointer/gun sight/cat teaser. It’s not like you’re ever going to use it again. Look at it.
