• 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.

The slides from his presentation are embedded below, but… 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

  • 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?

  • 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
