  • CrunchDeals: 2TB Western Digital My Book for $249

    If you like to hoard stuff digitally, you’ll love the price on this two-terabyte external hard drive from Newegg. It’s the Western Digital My Book for $249 with free shipping. That’s cheap! Just think of all the questionable content you could store on it! Set it up striped as RAID 0 or go for broke and mirror it as RAID 1. And remember, it looks like a book so you can put… Read More

  • Dudes keep Motorola clinging to its market share for one more year


    Motorola somehow managed to keep its position this year as the number one mobile phone manufacturer in the US, according to a report by analysts at Multimedia Intelligence, but things aren’t looking so hot for next year. The analysts predict that RIM and Apple’s penetration (heh) into the mobile market are causing heartache for Moto and its 21% market share. Samsung and LG are… Read More

  • Twones: A Social Music Feed (500 Beta Invites)

    The more that music moves online and is consumed in streams from multiple sites, the harder it is to keep track of what you listen to across the Web. A startup from Amsterdam called Twones is trying to make sense of all the noise.

    To the point: A nice plasma that offers a quality image, good colors, and a great scaler. Too bad it’s overpriced. Read More

  • Do you use a cell phone holster?

    It was pointed out to me recently that the citizens of the U.S. are just about the only people on the planet that carry their cell phones in holsters. After a moment’s reflection I realized this was pretty accurate: in all my travels through Scandinavia, and Western and Eastern Europe over the last couple of years, I don’t think I saw a single cell phone carried anywhere other than… Read More

  • Helping people, for once: A refrigerator that doesn't require electricity

    Someone decided to be clever and actually put technology to good use (as opposed to pouring endless amounts of money into developing bigger and bigger TVs), having developed a refrigerator of sorts that doesn’t require any electricity to operate. A team at Stanford, funded by a VC dude by the name of Adam Grosser, came up with a device that essentially works like a big hand warmer, but… Read More

  • Paulo Coelho: "MySpace Is My Wife, Facebook Is My Mistress"

    I had the absurdly awesome opportunity to attend a small MySpace-organized private lunch with author Paulo Coelho this afternoon in Paris before he spoke at the Le Web conference. Coelho, who has sold 135 million copies of The Alchemist, announced his new movie project, The Experimental Witch, in partnership with MySpace. He’s pictured to the left with MySpace COO Amit Kapur, who was also… Read More

  • Apple's first French retail store to open by next autumn

    Apple is expected to start construction on its first French retail store later this week, to be located in a chic area of Paris. (“A chic area of Paris” is redundant, by the way.) Actually, it’s right by the Louvre, where thousands of plundered ancient treasures are stored for all to see. So that makes five European countries where Apple has at least one retail store: the… Read More

  • GeForce 9400M to rescue the Intel Atom?

    The Achilles heal of Intel Atom powered netbooks/nettops is that the graphic power sucks. Hopefully, that will change with an on-motherboard GeForce GPU 9400M. That graphics chip is the same found in Apple’s latest MacBooks and should help improve the lackluster Intel Atom’s graphic performance. Read More

  • Review: Beats Tour by Dr. Dre from Monster Cable

    Monster Cable’s second foray into the in-ear monitor area is much, much better than their first go-around with the Turbines. Knowing that Monster Cable loves to gouge folks on overpriced cables, one has wonder if their headphones are overpriced as well? Perhaps, but it depends on who you’re asking. Read More
