  • QuickPlay to stream popular TV shows to your BlackBerry

    Toronto-based Quickplay is set to stream full length TV shows from networks, including CBS, MTV, and NBC. The PrimeTime2Go package will be offered for $7.99/month and will only stream over Wi-Fi to the Bold and 8900.

  • It's… a beating heart made of Sony products


    Not sure what to make of this. FX company Artem have taken it upon themselves (likely with a little cash incentive from Sony) to create an object out of Sony products that… beats. It doesn’t really look like a heart, though, does it? And it’s related to soccer how? Read More

  • Android tether app yanked by T-Mo


    I just saw this app the other day, and now — it’s gone! How shocking! It looks like “Wifi tether for root users” was in violation of T-Mobile’s terms of service, and Google has shown its cards by removing it. No one really thought the Android Marketplace was going to be a Wild West of G1 apps, but it’s a little disappointing to see just how locked-down… Read More

  • Hitachi executive indicted on TFT-LCD price fixing scandal

    Ruh roh. Hitachi exec Sakae Someya along with other unnamed conspirators have just been charged in the global price fixing LCD scandal that rocked the tech world. OK, it didn’t really rock the tech world, but it was a pretty big deal and I’m sure Dell wasn’t too happy about it. Read More

    Unless you’re like me and buy all your EA games via Steam, you’ve got some serious DRM. And once you uninstalled the game, you’ve still got DRM.

  • There's more than one way to skin a Firefox

    TechCrunch reported on the Mozilla Labs Personas work, allowing you to theme your Firefox web browser. I share Robin’s opinion that Mozilla should maybe, just maybe, focus on making Firefox a kick ass web browser, and leave the doodads and geegaws for other folks. Enter Brand Thunder, a company in Columbus, OH looking to “offer companies a compelling, patent-pending solution… Read More

  • HP testing Android on netbooks

    This is completely off topic, but earlier today I was wondering if Google would eventually turn into Skynet. In case you’re wondering, I just got hooked on the Terminator television series. Anyway, the WSJ is reporting that HP is currently testing out Google’s Android platform for a possible netbook. They haven’t committed to an Android-based netbook, but HP’s… Read More
