  • Search Smackdown: Bing Vs. Google

    That was fast. Irish programmer and SEO specialist Paul Savage has made this very basic web service, which lists all results for search queries on Google and Bing side by side so you can compare which one produces the best results for the keywords you enter on one single page. We’ve played around with it a bit and found that the tool proves that the user experience for both search… Read More

  • CrunchGear does E3: day one roundup

    We were on the scene down here in LA, and today was the first big day of the show — even though it doesn’t really even start until tomorrow. Today was actually the day of press conferences by some of the big players, where they drop all their big news and tell you where to check out the latest big franchise games. It’s also a showcase for the latest acquisitions and… Read More

  • E3 2009: Splinter Cell Conviction first gameplay footage

    You’ve seen the trailer, now see the gameplay. They actually modeled Sam Fisher on a younger, fitter now-CrunchGear-editor John Biggs. John was never quite that deadly, let’s be honest, but we have to allow a certain level of artistic license in these things. The lithe movements are very Biggs-ish, though. Read More

  • E3 2009: Red Steel 2 actual gameplay video

    Red Steel was a groundbreaking game in the truest sense: it broke ground. Not necessarily very well, but it was the first Wii game to really try to do what we were all thinking: guns and swords. Red Steel 2 may actually deliver on the promises its predecessor made, but at the very least it looks like a fun game to flail around in. Check out a few minutes of gameplay inside, including the… Read More

  • E3 2009: Lionhead's Project Milo

    Raise your hand if you thought Microsoft’s press conference was a bit of a bore this morning? Aside from Natal, I wasn’t all that impressed by any of the upcoming titles (except for Conviction and maybe The Beatles Rock Band) or the updates to Xbox Live. Lionhead really stole the show when they unveiled a little AI boy named Milo. Read More

  • E3 2009: Assassin's Creed 2 direct-feed trailer

    We had a bootleg that we almost uploaded, but we decided to download and re-up Ubisoft’s streaming version instead. Are you ready for some new-school Assassin’s Creed? Are you? Well then what are you waiting for? Click! Hard to tell anything specific about the game other than that part of it takes place in picturesque Venice (hopefully one of several locations you can again ride… Read More

  • E3 2009: Halo 3 ODST to include exclusive wireless Xbox 360 controller

    Fancy a ODST wireless Xbox 360 controller? Well, it’s going to cost you $99 when Halo 3 ODST drops on September 22, but don’t worry that includes the game as well. Hit the jump to see the controller and the official ODST trailer. Read More

  • E3 2009: Splinter Cell: Conviction trailer, shooting grenades in mid-air edition

  • Want Your Service Integrated With TweetDeck? It'll Cost You A Cool $50,000

    One of Twitter’s greatest assets has always been its developer community. But with the countless link, image, and video sharing services available (many of which are very similar to each other), most new services are lost to obscurity. When it comes to determining which services will succeed, the popular Twitter clients hold all the keys. If you’re integrated with one… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson dropping Memory Stick Micro, apparently stopped taking moron pills

    Well here’s a welcome addition to today’s happiness bank: Sony Ericsson is dropping the Memory Stick Micro, Sony’s red hot memory stick platform, for MicroSD. The Memory Stick, if you’ll recall, was Sony’s attempt to rule the roost when it came to memory cards, a strategy that failed so spectacularly that they created an entire sidereal constellation of memory… Read More

  • Quirky Is A Social Network For Product Development

    Have you ever thought of a quirky but innovative product that might be useful to the masses but didn’t follow through with the idea? Sometimes these flashes of genius get lost in the shuffle. Startup quirky is hoping to be the platform for product ideas that are born on napkin doodles and in other unorthodox ways. The site then tries to use crowdsourcing to develop the product, by… Read More

  • LIVE: Ubisoft E3 2009 press conference

    We’re live at Ubisoft’s conference at E3 in Los Angeles… We expect to see a lot of AssCreed 2, Red Steel 2, Tom Clancy and possibly DLC for Far Cry 2 from Ubi tonight. Stay tuned. Read More

  • Unlocking the "uncrackable" Medeco Deadbolt

    Marc Weber Tobias is a locksmith with a flair for the flamboyant. His goal, really, is to show the insecurity of most lock systems and his efforts to crack the Medeco Deadbolt, the lock the U.S. government uses to secure its secret pot supply as well as almost everything else it likes to keep locked up, are now legendary. Wired ran a great article and video of Tobias in action. He is an… Read More

  • E3 2009: APB cinematic trailer

    We’ve got to run to the Ubisoft event, but the last thing up from the EA press conference is this cinematic trailer for their new semi-MMO sandbox-style crime game. You and 99 other people, slugging it out cops and robbers style. Damn, we gotta book. Watch the trailer. Read More

  • E3 2009: Brutal Legend trailer (with Jack Black cameo)

    When I first saw the poster, I kind of thought Brutal Legend was going to be like Guitar Hero with blood and guts… but it actually looks to be a pretty fun-looking third person action romp. Plus it’s got the voice talents of Jack Black, Ozzy Osborne, and other legends of rock, so you know it’s at least going to be… well, I guess you don’t really know anything at all. Read More

  • E3 2009: The Old Republic – first cinematic trailer of Bioware's Star Wars MMO

    Those crazy Star Wars types. Always like to make a scene. The music came on with no warning so I missed the first part of the fanfare, but I sure didn’t miss the two dozen lightsaber-bearing eunuchs (I think) that accompanied the Bioware and LucasArts dudes on the stage. They announced that The Old Republic will be the first-ever fully voiced MMORPG. That’s a lot of voice acting… Read More

  • E3 2009: L4D Trailer with More zombies, chainsaws

    I’ll let the E3 boys to their business on this but I thought you might like to see the new Left 4 Dead trailer. It involves zombies and killing. Read More

  • Toshiba to finally release netbook in the US

    While Toshiba’s had netbooks out in Japan for a while (and Europe, recently) the company’s been a wallflower here in the US, patiently watching as netbooks have evolved over the past year or so and taking notes in a leather-bound pad marked “Netbooks: Pros and Cons” that it carries around in its back pocket. Sure, it looks dumb when Toshiba takes out the pad in a… Read More
