• Hands-on: Novatel MiFi 2352 Hotspot for Telefónica

    We first saw the MiFi 2352 Mobile Hotspot’s CDMA brother back at CES; we loved it then, and we love it just as much in its GSM form. Novatel announced yesterday that Telefónica would be the first carrier to launch the MiFi sometime during this quarter, so we figured we’d stop by their suite to give it a spin. Read More

Once you’ve tied Skype contacts to their relative contacts in your address book, their… Read More

  • PocketWizard: remote flash trigger deeeluxe

    For photographers who work with sophisticated lighting setups (that would be not me, so excuse my ignorance), triggering several flashes or distant flashes can be a chore. The lighting world is mostly a mystery to me, but I can certainly understand that not only do you not always want the flash pointing directly at the subject, but sometimes you may want a couple, distant, at weird angles.

    Boulder, Colorado-based startup incubator TechStars has decided to open a second office in Boston where it will run a concurrent mentorship program starting this summer.

    Design standards on the Web are constantly evolving, and the Mobile Web is no exception. We’re currently smack-dab in the middle of the Web App age, with users expecting their mobile browser-based services to provide a rich visual experience closer to that of a native application than the ultra lightweight (and generally ugly), text-centric pages of yesteryear. Looking to embrace… Read More

  • Mr. Tux Goes to Washington

    A bunch of granola chewing hippies freedom loving technologists sent a letter to President Obama, encouraging him to consider open source software. Signed by representatives from Novell, Red Hat, Unisys, and a bunch of other open source solutions companies, the letter is well-written piece of advocacy.

  • Justin.tv Is Redirecting Porn Queries Into Cash (Update: Not Any More)

    In the down economy, startups are trying everything they can think of to keep a steady flow of revenue coming in. For popular live-streaming video site Justin.tv, it looks like one of these measures is to try to capitalize on its users’ frequent searches for porn: if you run queries for terms like “xxx” or “sex”, the site will automatically redirect you to a… Read More

  • Roundtripping to the Cloud

    Sunday I finally pulled the trigger on a move I’ve been contemplating for a very long time. If you’d asked me 5 or even 10 years ago whether I’d move back to Comcast for anything except virtual dominatrix sessions, I’d have made, and lost, a sizable bet. That’s what I did on Sunday, consolidated a lot of services round Comcast and its Triple Play suite of… Read More

  • First Street Fighter IV sales numbers, live streams all over the place

    It goes without saying that most of us here at CG are looking forward to Street Fighter IV‘s release tomorrow. The game has been available for a few days in Japan, and rough first-day sales numbers have trickled out.

  • Audi employs holographic sales rep

    It’s not quite as exciting as you want it to be, but an Audi dealership in Sydney has added a hologram of sorts to its sales department. It’s not projected by a maintenance droid and it’s probably just a 2-minute loop, but it’s still kind of cool. Read More

  • Cherry red Xbox 360 coming soon?

    We heard the rumors, and now we see what appears to be the proof! A Resident Evil 5 bundle should be hitting the streets along with the game on March 5. It’s an Elite system and costs a daunting $400, but for the truly l33t, that’s not a problem. Read More

  • Review: iShoot for iPhone


    Among the millions of apps being released hourly in the App store, there truly are apps worth buying, and those that not worth wasting a glance at. iShoot ($2.99) is one of the best and brightest among its craptastic peers.

  • Acer busts out its whole new "Tempo" smartphone line


    Last week we saw a couple phones drop from Acer, namely the DX650 (which is weird) and the X960 (which is generic). Well, they’ve expanded the lineup and now they’ve got a few more phones ready to hit the market. They all run WinMo 6.1 and with a little luck and legwork we’ll have hands-on with all of them soon.
