• In case you missed it – stereographic RED 3D setup

    Down at the very bottom of RED’s enormous Epic/Scarlet page there is this little item you may have overlooked. We told you they were trademarking “RED 3D” back in October, and sure enough here is the dedicated 3D setup we thought would come to pass. In light of the rest of the announcement, it’s clear it’s essentially just a special baseplate and lateral fasteners… Read More

  • A full Alienware rig for a grand? Can it be?

    Looks like Alienware is sensitive to the needs of country. In these times, when the only people who can afford top-shelf parts are AIG executives, we need an option that doesn’t break the bank, yet can pull down 50fps in Far Cry 2. Alienware may be little more than a Dell organ now, but they still make good computers, and if you’re looking for something premade with a little… Read More

  • The Papermaster saga continues: far from first choice, and IBM didn't try that hard to keep him

    Yeah…a play on “Boston Legal” probably would have been better (and easier)
    The ongoing drama between Apple and IBM in which would-be iPod and iPhone division head Mark Papermaster is charged with breaching a non-competition contract with IBM is getting more complicated. On the Apple side, it’s no great surprise to find out that he was considered rather a… Read More

  • Forget BPA and asbestos, watch out for silver nanoparticles

    Especially around your junk. Now, silver nanoparticles are one of these technologies where the benefits have been proven (they’re antibacterial when mixed in fabrics, for instance) but not the risks, and there’s a good chance that there are serious risks. When bringing a new product like this to market, usually the entity bringing it has to show proof that it’s not… Read More

  • GirlInYourShirt: $75 Buys Your Startup Marketing For A Day

    I imagine more than a few startups will take Jenaé up on her offer to wear your startup shirt and talk about your company for a day. It’s $75, and she posts videos on her site, YouTube, Seesmic and Viddler, posts pictures on Flickr and tweets about it all as well. You have to send her the shirt two weeks in advance, and afterwards she gives it away. It consists of me being your… Read More

  • First thoughts on Wrath of the Lich King: Death Knights are fun

    Blizzard released Wrath of the Lich King last night at midnight, and while I didn’t do a live UStream.tv stream of the installation—chill out, WoW Insider—I’m now prepared to give y’all a quick “here’s what’s up” of sorts. Thankfully, the game ships on a DVD. No more “please insert disc 87” nonsense when installing. So… Read More

  • Mitsubishi announces a pico projector, but it's not what you think

    Such a tease you are, Mitsubishi. When this hit my inbox I thought it was one of those small pico projectors crammed into a BlackBerry or something like the 3M MPro110, but it’s a 3.3-pound 7.5- x 8.1-inch projector for business types. It’s a DLP type so that’s a plus and it manages to throw a 2200 ANSI lumens 200-inch 1024×768 resolution image with a 2000:1 contrast ratio. Read More

  • IntenseDebate Goes Public Again, Releases WordPress Plugin

    IntenseDebate, the enhanced commenting system that was recently acquired by WordPress’s parent company Automattic, has relaunched to the public (the service originally opened its doors in late 2007, but reentered private beta as soon as it was acquired). IntenseDebate has also released the public beta of its WordPress plugin, which includes a number of features that make it much… Read More

  • 3 targets mass market with 'Facebook phone' launch

    Sometimes it pays to be on this side of the pond, especially if you’re a Facebook addict with a yen for mobile gadgetry and don’t mind switching to 3 if you’re not with them already. The network will be the exclusive carrier for the INQ¹, a Hutchison Whampoa handset launched in the UK only which integrates all the big social networking sites and services – Facebook… Read More

  • Handheld barcode scanner/printer combo from HP

    I’m not one to get overly excited about the technology behind transportation logistics (or am I?) but this thing from HP looks pretty cool. It’s basically a handheld wireless-enabled barcode scanner that can also print quick-drying ink directly onto boxes. So if you work at, say, UPS, you scan a box coming in, that info is transmitted wirelessly to your warehouse servers, and then… Read More

  • Review: Black and Decker 10-speed Cyclone blender

    Like my review of the Juiceman, Jr., the Black and Decker 10-speed Cyclone Blender caused me to move beyond my staple meals of ramen noodles, chicken wings, and beer.  I spent time in parts of the grocery store that I didn’t know existed.  As a bachelor, blending isn’t high on my list of food preparation activities, but for you, dear reader, I tied on my apron and blended a… Read More

  • Mac Pro getting Core i7-based CPU upgrades soon?

    Lets look at the big picture here: MacWorld is in January, the Mac Pro’s are need for a CPU bump, and Intel is planning on releasing new Xeon server CPUs early next year. It sure looks good that the Mac Pro’s should receive a CPU upgrade soon but the question becomes, what CPU will Steve-O slap in the the Mac Pro?  Chances are Apple will stick with the Xeon line up and the Core… Read More

  • Time on what happened to Circuit City

    We all know Circuit City is in the pooper, but Time gives a little back history for those not familiar with Circuit City’s last decade of suck. Best part? For many consumers, however, Circuit City’s most obvious failing was its customer service. In March 2007, it announced plans to lay off its highest-paid hourly employees, including salespeople, and replace them with cheaper workers. Read More

  • My God, it's full of K's! What the RED announcement means for the industry

    Image credit: Benni Diez at Reduser.net forums For the last couple weeks, Jim Jannard of RED Camera has been teasing everybody on the REDuser forums with vague promises and outrageous claims of revolutionizing the industry. Skepticism would be the natural response, but after the original RED One camera turned the industry on its head in 2007, people learned that the company said what they… Read More

  • BRABUS manages to tune the Tesla Roadster with virtual enhancements

    BRABUS is big in the car tuning scene and generally installs some spectacular performance mods, squeezing the utmost ability out of a particular vehicle. This time around though, the BRABUS boys claimed to have produced the world’s first tuned Tesla Roadster but all they did was add a “space sound generator” that simulates the sound of a V8 engine, race car, or even a… Read More

  • Photos from CrunchDrinks Stockholm

    Here we see the cream of the Swedish Web 2.0 scene. These men are artists, gentlemen, and scholars to a one and we had a bit of beer, a bit of discussion, and a bit of fun. Special thanks to Wille for his help at picking the venue and thanks to all the Swedes who trekked out into the cold and braved the polar bears to down a little booze. Read More

  • Best Buy Black Friday ad spotted: Transformers on Blu-ray for $10

    Break out your credit cards, if you still have them! Black Friday is right around the corner so we’ll be seeing leaked ads all over the place for the next few days. Today’s is a big one, Best Buy. Though BlackFriday.info highlights an $899 50-inch Panasonic Viera. Nine-hundred for a 50-inch TV may seem like a good deal till you realize it’s only a 720p model. If… Read More

  • Darpa developing, yes, a flying car

    They killed the electric car—they is no one in particular—but damn it if we’re not gonna see a flying car before this planet’s best and brightest found a space colony on the moon. Yes, Darpa, which brought you all of the Internets, has developed Personal Air Vehicle Technology, or PAVT (or A Ceca Persevering Holly Hot Loin, in anagram form). It’s part car… Read More
