  • Verizon looks at the BL40, wimps out, goes with some boring handset

    Look, Verizon. I know that we’ve given the BL40 a lot of crap since it first leaked out. It was a pretty grand departure from Chocolates past and, well, it looked big enough to churn butter with. That said, we liked it. Apparently we were the only ones – either that, or the people in Verizon’s “Focus group” were just jerks. They got handed two prototypes: one… Read More

  • NASA lights up the East Coast

    East Coasters, did you see any weird clouds Saturday night? Some people did as the event caused reports and calls from Boston all the way down the coast to Florida. But you have nothing to fear, the aliens from Independence Day didn’t make them, NASA did. Read More

  • MySpace Hooks Up With Twitter, Offers Two-Way Sync

    Realizing that it’s better to swim with the stream than against it, MySpace has just turned on two-way sync with Twitter. MySpace status updates can now be sent to Twitter and shared with all of your followers there, and Twitter updates can appear in your MySpace activity stream as well (blog post). Members of both services can connect their accounts using OAuth. Status updates… Read More

  • Seagate’s new 2TB hard drive pushes 6Gb/s transfer speed

    Seagate’s just busted through that swing-down arm thing commonly found at tollbooths and for-pay parking lots. In the wake of thousands of little wooden splinters, we observe Seagate sticking its hairy arm out the driver’s side window, fist clenched but for a solitary index finger pointing skyward, as if to say, “I’m number one.” Read More

  • Google Is Searching For Beautiful Minds, But So Far No M.I.T. Students Have Broken Its Code.

    It used to be that M.I.T was filled with code-breakers. Part of the movie A Beautiful Mind takes place there and in real life it’s always had close ties with the military and intelligence agencies. Tech companies also like to recruit there, and Google is no exception. In search of some beautiful minds, Google has been putting up signs around the M.I.T campus with a code that say… Read More

  • The Nikon S1000pj is now available for purchase

    Nice. The Nikon S1000pj pocket projector camera was originally slated for September 17th release, but then a nasty Internet rumor circulated stating that it was pushed back to October 23 due to supply levels. But a Nikon PR dude sent us a little note, calming stating that it was still on track. We have no idea if any actually got their hands on the camera on the 17th, but it’s now… Read More

  • Hollywood, We Have Plenty Of Half-Services. It's Time For A Whole One.

    I was reading over a pitch tonight for a new streaming movie service called Epix HD, when I looked up from my computer to my TV stand. On it, I saw an Apple TV, an Xbox 360, and a cable box. Right there, that is 3 different ways to get streaming movies to my television. And that’s not even mentioning the Netflix service over Xbox Live, and the streaming service that can come right to my TV. Read More

  • TechCrunch50 Had Internet And Then Some. Mariette Systems FTW.

    Technology conferences are supposed to have Internet. Most don’t. In fact, audiences are trained to be grateful for even a trickle of bandwidth. Maybe enough to get off a Tweet or two. But uploading photos and videos is something that you do later, after the event is over. Because it can take days. It’s been a real problem for us over the years. We’ve thrown money at the problem.

  • Adobe Gets Into Widget Distribution And Advertising With Help From Gigya

    Many of the widgets scattered across the Web are made in Flash, but Adobe doesn’t participate in the widget economy. Today, it is taking a first tentative step towards changing that with the release of a new Distribution Manager for widgets created on the Flash Platform. In addition to making it easier for people to share the widgets across 70 Web and mobile destinations, it will… Read More

    The LRO has already provided us with a lot of fascinating high-res photos of the Moon’s surface. But photos are just the start. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter also has more instruments aboard and one of them, the Diviner Lunar Radiometer developed and operated by the California Institute of Technology Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is sending back some wild info about the Moon’s… Read More

  • Behind the scenes look at PGA Tour’s ‘ShotLink’ technology

      Pretty interesting behind the scenes article and video over at Sandbox8 about how the seemingly endless stream of statistical data flows around the course at a PGA Tour event.

  • Nintendo confirms Wii price drop?

    There’s been some chatter about this over the last week, but I wanted to wait until something a little more solid came up. After all, how many times have price drops been reported for the other consoles that turned out to be bogus? But it appears that Nintendo itself is now confirming the price drop (not just retailers), so you can probably expect a $200 Wii starting September 27th. Read More

  • From Nothing To Something. How To Get There.

    This guest post was written by Meebo CEO Seth Sternberg. It is the first in a series of posts he’s writing about the decisions a young entrepreneur needs to make when she/he is first starting a business. The timing is perfect, there is more than a little overlap with Vivek Wadhwa’s guest post on venture capital earlier today. We’ll update this post with links to his… Read More
