• CrunchGear's 2007 Year-End review round-up

    It’s the end of the year, and we’ve covered a lot of ground in the last 12 months, much of it with snarky reviews. Let’s look back, shall we, at a handful of these reviews, just for fun. We’ve seeen phones, cameras, iPods, cases, and combinations thereof. These items we liked (usually), and we think you’ll like them, too. The rest can be found here or here. Read More

  • The year 2007 according to TechCrunch

    Big Daddy is rounding up the year with, what else, lists documenting the most popular articles, heavy hitting stories and those who entered the dreaded deadpool in the past year. Whether you’re into the whole Web 2.0 craze or not, it may be a good idea just to peruse the headlines to see if anything tickles your fancy and see what’s actually going on in the World Wide Web.

  • OLPC 'Give One Get One' ends today

    If you’ve been putting donating an OLPC, today is your last day to participate in the Give One Get One program. So after today, if you buy one, you only get one. It’ll set you back $399, but it’s for a good cause and you’ll get one for yourself, so yay. OLPC Read More

  • The Wii, DS pwn everyone and their mother

    Yes, we all know the Wii is still an elusive bugger and the DS is hot stuff (it’s outselling the PSP), but the novelty of both have warn off. I don’t touch the Wii anymore, but I am learning Spanish via My Spanish Coach at the moment on my DS. The NYT has a fancy, yet bloated, article on the success of both devices for Nintendo and the only thing worth noting from the whole thing… Read More

  • LG Rumor has problems, big problems

    The LG Rumor for Sprint appears to have major issues. Big time problems. A debugging menu has been found on the device that triggers a complete wipe of the phone including its firmware. For the time being, Sprint has halted all shipments of the Rumor pending LG’s firmware update that will remove the code to access the debugging menu. The specific details on how to access the menu are… Read More

  • Who Is The Openest Of Them All?

    If there is one thing I noticed this past year, it is that companies seem to be tripping over themselves more than ever before to claim the mantle of openness. Openness is now a marketing mantra. Facebook kicked things off in May by opening up its social network to outside developers through a comprehensive set of APIs. Google responded by trying to “out open” Facebook with… Read More

  • CrunchGear virus false alarm in IE

    It appears some anti-virus software is pinging mootools — a Javascript script that is running on this site now — as a SNZ.A virus. I discovered that this has been happening recently and isn’t a virus but I have some nerds working on it so you won’t get the computer-herp. Read More

  • BlackBerry, please make the following changes for 2008


    I don’t do well under pressure so I can’t think of anything off the top of my head. Maybe I need some coffee. My only gripes are HTML e-mail and something else that I just forgot. I need some coffee. In the meantime, feel free to add to the list in comments. Read More

  • Sprint updates drivers for Mac OS X

    I sure hope this works because I haven’t been able to use one of my Sprint dongles for months. Sprint has updated their drivers for Novatel EV-DO Rev. A devices (S720, U720, EX720 and U727) to play nice with Leopard and its WWAN framework. Sprint is even allowing your dongles to be used as GPS devices free of charge. High five, Sprint. Version 2.0 is a hefty 12MB and I hope it’s… Read More

  • Asus Eee PC gets bedazzled


    Not really bedazzled, but I was just listening to Dane Cook and he was talking about his sisters bedazzling his jean jackets when he was a kid. Umm. Ok. Awkward. Asus is looking to cash in on the popularity of the Eee with a handful of accessories for the new year. Whatever shade of vomit you decide on for your Eee, if you don’t have one, can be accompanied by a mouse with the same shade. Read More

  • Thiel Invests in Israeli Stealth Startup Hooja

    From TechCrunch UK: Israeli search technology start-up Hooja has raised $1.5 million from some well known-investors, including Peter Thiel, one of the founders of PayPal, and an early investor in Facebook. Hooja, currently in stealth mode, is said to be developing a technology that enables content providers to access personal and social information about users, and the tech is related to… Read More

  • Verizon Expects over 300 Million Messages Today and Tonight

    Verizon customers are expected to send over 300 million text, picture and video messages this New Year’s Eve between the hours of 12 p.m. and 4a.m. ET New Year’s Day. During the third quarter of 2007, customers exchanged more than 721 million picture and video messages over Verizon Wireless’ nationwide network and sent or received nearly 36.5 billion text messages. … Read More

  • XBL crapping out


    I haven’t been playing much in the last week or so, but I know there were some issues and everything seemed to have been resolved over the weeekend. I remember having difficulty signing in and gave up after a couple attempts. I thought it was just my network connection. But I guess not. Anyone still having problems with XBL? What should MS do to make this up to us? Is the Zune… Read More

  • LG.Philips announces multiple LCDs ahead of CES

    I’m not really looking forward to CES next week, but LG.Philips has me frothing with the announcement of multiple LCDs ranging from 32- to 84-inches with multi-touch interfaces, handwriting recognition and transreflective backlighting. Can you imagine what your TV viewing experience will be like with any of new sets? It’s going to be mind boggling. Oh wait, i forgot to tell you… Read More

  • BlackBerry 9000 revealed, major disappointment?

    It appears the rumored touchscreen BB is just a myth if you believe what first time poster Cooper over at BB Forums has to say. This photo was purportedly taken in Waterloo at the RIM campus. The 9xxx line won’t see a touchscreen for a long time and it seems as though it’s a myth internally, too according to Coops. I have a hard time swallowing this one. If anything, this looks like… Read More

  • New Blackberry 9000 in iPhone Black?

    A picture of what may or may not be the next-generation Blackberry 9000 popped up in an online forum. The device does not appear to have a touchscreen, but it does sport a black iPhone-like sheen. Again, this could be the real deal, a hoax, or some unrelated prototype. But one thing is for sure: iPhones and Blackberries are on a collision course. As iPhones gain more enterprise-class… Read More

  • Vonage Settles with Nortel

    Internet calling company Vonage announced today that is has settled three patent disputes with telecommunications equipment manufacturer, Nortel. The settlement involves a limited cross license to three Nortel and three Vonage patents and will not call for any monetary payments by any party.
