  • CrunchDeal: Find temporarily free iPhone apps with Twitter

    Twitter and the iPhone. They’re both pretty love-it-or-hate-it subjects — but put them together in the right way, and they’re wonderful.

  • Video: 40-year old Moon landing footage post restoration

    Lowry Digital in Burbank has been restoring old Apollo footage for a while now and NASA just released a small sample of the work. Now, the restoration doesn’t do wonders to the 40 year old stock, but it’s at least better than nothing. Maybe now we can make out that damn coke can more clearly as it bounces across the “Moon surface.” (kidding) More footage will be… Read More

  • D.C. police chief doesn't want you to use iPhone Apps to detect traffic cameras

    This is a few days old, so apologies in advance for that. Anyway, the Washington D.C. police chief, Cathy Lanier, has chided people who use radar-detecting technology, including iPhone applications, for their “cowardly tactic.” With apps such as EyeWiki, people are able to flag known locations of traffic cameras using GPS. Then, as you approach a flagged camera, the app rings… Read More

  • Tabbed browsing to be included in BlackBerry OS 5.0 – maybe

    BlackBerry users rejoice! Tabbed browsing is probably coming with the next major OS release. We say probably ’cause it’s currently included in the beta release, but that doesn’t for sure mean it will make the cut. Anyway, we would love to see tabbed browsing or something that will efficiently allow us to run multiple browser windows. The current build requires users to bring up… Read More

  • Dopplr Launches iPhone App, But Where's The Add Trip Button?

    Dopplr has launched an iPhone app they are billing as a “social atlas”. Curiously, and possibly wisely, you don’t even need an account at Dopplr to use the app, meaning it will get exposed to a lot more potential users. However, a let down from the get-go is that you can’t add upcoming trips from within the app right now, which is kinda the point with Dopplr, as… Read More

  • Chrome For Mac Starting To Look Polished

    No, it’s not ready yet. But it does at least look like the Mac release of Chrome is getting ready for prime time. Now, let me be clear: I am not testing out that rather bogus “Developer Release” of Chrome that Google announced to placate users last month, I’m testing out the daily builds of Chromium, which you can find for the Mac here. How different are they? Well, in… Read More
