Check out our previous teaser posts for the mysterious renders that RED head Jim Jannard has been posting. Read More

  • More Sex Videos For Everyone! YouTube Sells Video Search Results To The Highest Bidder

    Forget those YouTubevertorials. Google is no longer joking around when it comes to turning YouTube into real business that, you know, makes money. YouTube on its own would rank as the second largest search engine after Google. And you know what? Google has already figured out how to make money from search. You sell the top results to the highest bidder. YouTube has long resisted selling… Read More

  • Best Buy has the Eee PC 900 for $280 (that's $20 cheaper than usual)

    Best Buy has the Eee PC 900A—that’s the most basic one—for a full $20 cheaper than you’ll find anywhere else. So, for $280 you get the 8.9-inch display netbook with 4GB flash storage (that’s 4GB storage and not memory, mind you). Unrelated: Seven hours till Wrath of the Lich King! Read More

  • Samsung P3 finally breaks cover

    Samsung YP-P3 info has been leaking out for a while now but actual pics have finally surfaced. It seems like next version is more of an evolutionary update that adds haptic feedback, along with widgets, to the touchscreen PMP. According to the French website, there is going to be 4, 8, 16, and 32GB versions that all sport Bluetooth 2.0, FM tuner, microphone, mono speaker, and aluminum casing… Read More

  • Workstir Opens Its Trustworthy Classifieds To The Public

    Craigslist is great (I use it all the time), but there are few things more unnerving than inviting a total stranger billing himself as a “HANDY MAN, AT YOUR SERVICE!” to your house to make a few repairs. The vast majority of transactions on the site go smoothly and without incident, but there’s a reason Cragislist advises you to meet up in a public place and let a friend… Read More

  • MySpace App for BlackBerry going live tonight

  • Microsoft to take on Steam in battle of the digital distribution systems

    Once again, Microsoft is jealous of another company’s success in a sector adjacent to their own, and is setting their crosshairs accordingly. Unfortunately this is one company that can’t be bought or properly imitated: Valve and Steam are firebrands in the gaming world, and have achieved over the years a level of trust and legitimacy among gamers that is nigh impossible for perhaps… Read More

  • A Scary Line Has Been Crossed For VCs

    At a recent presentation at Harvard Business School, Adeo Ressi argued that the VC model is broken. That is nothing new for Ressi, who is the founder of the VC-rating site theFunded. He is kind of like the Nick Denton of the VC world, always saying that the sky is falling. It’s just that at this moment he happens to be right. The slides from his presentation are embedded below, but… Read More

  • Review: HTC Touch Pro (Sprint) and HTC Fuze (AT&T)

    Short Version: The HTC Touch Pro is easily the best HTC device available from US carriers right now. If you’ve been considering a professional-level Windows Mobile phone with a QWERTY keyboard, the Touch Pro is an excellent choice. Read More

  • BlackBerry 8900 aka Javelin aka Curve II passes through the FCC

    This morning T-Mobile Germany announced the 8900 and now CellPhone Signal has found the FCC filing for North America. The baby Bold is expected to hit both GSM networks here in the US, but it’s unclear when that will be. For all the T-Mobile customers like myself, I hope it’s soon. Do I switch to AT&T to get the 3G Bold or suck it up and wait for the EDGE Curve II? Read More

  • And what do we think about the new Sirius lineup?

    Here’s the Sirius lineup for you, to go with the XM lineup we wrote about earlier today. I’m not as familiar with Sirius as am I with XM (being an Opie and Anthony fan and all), but I do like how Sirius is all, “Don’t like X? Try Y instead!” Um, no. We like X, meaning we’re likely to hate Y. The comments over at Orbitcast are worth reading. Holy smokes… Read More

  • Multiply Launches Collaborative Professional Photo Printing

    Multiply, a social network largely geared towards adults, has launched a new set of printing features that allow members to order professional prints of their photos directly from their online albums and those of their friends.

  • A Brief Intermission To Remember Why The Internet Is So Wonderful

    http://www.ustream.tv/flash/live/317016 A camera + the Internet + puppies. Ten thousand people are watching right now. My goal is to get people to stop emailing me this. Ok? It’s awesome. I posted. Time has all the details, if you want to know their names, etc. Read More

  • iGo multi-device charging solutions

    Would you shell out $140 for the iGo everywhereMAX because it charges your laptop in three ways: wall outlet, car outlet, airplane seat? How about the added value of being able to charge up your phone or some other device at the same time? Don’t most gadgets charge via USB these days? And what about the wallMAX for $100 that only plugs into a wall oulet? Would you call either of… Read More

  • Watch out, Surface; GestureTek is straight frontin'

    I guess you don’t know you’re leading the pack unless you hear the other dogs barking at your heels. GestureTek is a company that puts out touch- and gesture-based interactive screens in more various forms than the Microsoft Surface project. From what I can tell, it doesn’t track as exactly or as reliably as the seriously stress-tested Surface, but it also has a more… Read More

  • This Christmas, give the gift of a terrifying, photorealistic death mask

    Your lover will never forget… Wait, no, they’ll never forgive you if you have one of these frightening replicas made, either of your face or theirs. Apparently ThatsMyFace can create a passable resemblance of you from one straight-on shot and one profile shot. I’d think they’d want a few more data points, but you can’t argue with results. You can, however, argue… Read More

  • Nokia announces the E71's little brother: E63

    This morning Nokia made the E63 official although we found out about it yesterday. Nothing too fancy compared to the E71, but it does come with Wi-Fi, 3.5G and a 2-megapixel camera for 199 Euro. Read the rest at MobileCrunch Read More

  • LG, Sharp, and Chunghwa nailed for LCD price-fixing


    Such shameful conduct! It looks like from 2001 to 2006, LG, Sharp, and Chinese OEM Chunghwa were conspiring to keep the prices of LCD screens high and agreed on pricing floors to guarantee cash flow for everybody involved. Over five years of first- and second-party sales (Dell and Apple were among the buyers), they must have run up quite a tab, although no one’s done the math yet. Read More
