  • CrunchGear is Live at Penny Arcade Expo This Weekend

    It’s no burning man, but CrunchGear is live at the Penny Arcade Expo where we’re playing RPGs, engaging in cosplay, and decreasing our chances of perhaps, one day, losing our virginity. Pop by CrunchGear for more news and photos. Read More

  • PAX 2008: The public arrives in force

    I know you were all wondering what this moment looked like. The jealous, huddled masses were sitting outside while we flimsily credentialed press got to lick the first public playables of Spore, Mirror’s Edge, and so on up and down. Frankly I expected a little more violence. Not that it would have made for a better convention, but it certainly would be quite a video. Read More

  • PAX 2008: Fallout 3 hands-on

    They told us to stop filming but we’re naughty and we’re putting it up anyway. It’s a public convention and this is a public build that most people have already seen the demo of anyway, right? No harm, no foul. This is the same demo they showed me at E3 (same build, even) and the demo videos are good, but we thought you might want a little idiotic commentary to help wash down… Read More

  • PAX 2008: We get Zerged in Starcraft 2

    I think it’s actually more accurate to say that I failed to Zerg my opponent correctly. The game looks great, it controls just like the original to be honest, and the graphics are smooth and very detailed. I have this feeling that my old Protoss tactics are going to be of little use in this updated game. Although you’ll be happy to learn that many of your favorite units and… Read More

  • PAX 2008: Video runthough of new Halo 3 map, "Assembly"

    As mentioned earlier, Bungie had one level from their upcoming “Mythic” map pack on display at PAX 08. Called “Assembly”, it’s a very Midship-esque Covenant themed map. I gave it a quick run through earlier today, trying to get as much of the level on video as possible while attempting to avoid firefights — not an easy task. Beside the sneak peak, Bungie… Read More

  • Poll: PCalc on the iPhone or your trusty ole HP, TI

    I wouldn’t imagine any engineer or mad scientist would ditch his/her HP or TI to do calculations on their iPhone, but I could be wrong. What do you think? Check out what the PCalc has to offer first then voice your opinions. * Two layouts – a simple vertical one for everyday tasks, then rotate the calculator for full power when needed.
    * An RPN mode with one button access to… Read More

  • PAX 2008: There are lots of people here

    We’re here in my hometown covering the hell out of PAX. This was the waiting room, which was later full to capacity. These poor souls all had to wait while Greg and I checked out Starcraft 2, Mirror’s Edge, Fallout 3, Rock Band 2, and about a billion other awesome games that are playable there. We’ll have videos coming up as soon as they are encoded and uploaded, so stay tuned! Read More

  • Ditch your old paper business cards for a dot matrix one

    I’ve contemplated ditching my business cards for some time, but every convention I attend and every PR flack requires me to donate one dead tree to them. A friend recently told me he had ditched business cards altogether a while back and immediately directs people to connect with him on linkedin, which is a great idea. But, I really want a kickass looking business card that won’t… Read More

  • Official Gears of War 2 achievement list and some other exciting news

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?mid=33781 Yesterday’s list was incomplete and/or inaccurate. Today, MS released the full achievement list to IGN. The full list and a few other goodies from the horse’s mouth aka Cliffy B. after the jump. I can’t f*cking wait for this game! BODIES AS SHIELDS!!! Read More

  • Some CrunchBase API Stats and Apps

    Six weeks ago we launched an API for our technology database, CrunchBase. The idea was to give away lots of clean, structured data about the companies we cover, data that could be used to build new services and improve upon existing ones. Since then we’ve seen a number of impressive things built on top of the API. And the traffic has started to add up: between July 15th and August 15th… Read More

  • The Mysterious Ways Of Apple's Top Apps List

    Apple’s App Store is quickly becoming a hotbed for elite developers looking to capitalize on the store’s easy distribution model and huge exposure opportunities. Since the store’s launch less than two months ago, we’ve seen reports of apps reaching massive user bases and and collecting millions of dollars. But while the store has seen its share of its successes, it… Read More

  • German Custom agents spotted at IFA 2008

    Large, international tradeshows can showcase the absolute bleeding edge of technology. Sometimes though, said tech was developed with the unknown help of another company, so obviously, this can come to a breaking point at these tradeshows. According to The Register, German Custom agents have been busy this year at IFA.  A spokesman for German Customs told us: “We’ve raided… Read More

  • Dolby is all over IFA 2008

    From the standard fare of receivers to gaming headsets, Dolby has invaded IFA this year. Harman Kardon is going to launch the first receiver with Dolby’s touted Volume technology that ensures constant volume across all content media. Then there is the Plantronics GameCom 777 headset aimed at gamers with surround sound. PCs are getting a sound upgrade as well with Dolby Home Theater and… Read More

  • Harman Kardon breaks glass with GLA-55 speakers

    Indiana Jones or Superman prop; classy or just plain tacky? I can’t decide but I’ve to give the boys over at Harman Kardon for suck a clever name: GLA-55. ‘Cause it’s made out of glass. Get it?  Anyway, getting down to the details. Only two to three thousand are going to be made and priced at £500. Within the crystal speakers lay a 56 watt per speaker… Read More

  • How not to hide from CCTV cameras

    There’s been a lot of lip service paid about hiding from CCTV cameras using LEDs and IR lamps. Well, randolfo on Instructables just showed us that none of those solutions work and, in fact, will make you stand out even more. Towards this end, I lined the hood of a hoodie with 10 high-intensity IR LEDs all the while documenting the project to share with others. In fact, I was super-excited… Read More
