  • Maclaren Wheel Covers: You're a dirty, dirty baby

    Maclaren invented the umbrella stroller and now, interestingly enough, they’ve invented one of the strangest, OCD-inducing accessories I’ve ever seen. They’re now offering front wheel covers for their umbrella strollers, an idea so strange that I just can’t understand why anyone would want this but, as Greg at DaddyTypes points out, this has been out in Japan for a… Read More

  • Sascha Segan to Apple: Just tell the truth.

    PC Mag’s Lead Analyst for mobile, Sascha Segan, called out Apple (and AT&T, Delta, and corporations in general) in a piece today for their lack of communication with consumers, and has succinctly outlined what most of us have probably felt for some time: it’s time to open up.

  • Financial sector crisis is a field day for domain squatters


    I don’t pretend to understand the reasons behind the current financial meltdown, but I do know that the topography of the money business is going to be changing soon. I don’t have any way to capitalize on that (I just cower here in a corner, nervously stroking my Benjamins), but domain squatters do. By now every possible merger, acquisition, and bailout is reflected in domain… Read More

    Next week is our MeetUp in Austin, Texas, but before we party we are going to tackle the issue of how to use the Web to build grassroots support for a business, a cause, or a political candidate.

To help answer these… Read More

  • TiVo: Give me Hulu.com access and I'll be yours forever

    I have a proposal for you TiVo. If you give me Hulu.com access, I will buy your expensive lifetime subscription plan. The implantation has to be better than the lackluster YouTube support though, along with giving full and complete access through a browsable interface too. You see TiVo, the YouTube access is great, but I really don’t want to watch babies laughing or unicorns prancing on… Read More

  • Asus unveils the world's first Skype-certified Videophone, AiGuru SV1

    A few weeks back, an AskSlashdot post asked readers for recommendations on establishing 2-way communication between the writer’s house and that of his parents. For the most part, the majority of solutions involved server racks, ip tables, and other such ventures into the depths of the uber complex.

  • Lazertag looks like I wanted it to look when I was a kid

    This shot of the Lazertag Multiplayer Battle System, $80 from Amazon, looks so cool that I might need to get me some. The new guns have recoil and rumble as well as a shot blast system for simulating a shotgun. As John Brownlee points out, a lot of us 80s kids never got to play Lazertag because a police officer shot a kit who was playing it in the dark. I suspect that the story was urban… Read More

    When it comes to running a gigantic machine capable of ripping a hole in the space-time continuum that could suck the entire earth (and more) into oblivion, it’s probably safe to assume that you can never be too careful. This week was supposed to be the week that the Large Hadron Collider sent two proton beams careening at almost the speed of light in opposite directions on a literal… Read More

    Brit/US entrepreneur Michael Birch has not been resting since exiting from Bebo recently.
