  • Bungie "next generation" job posting OMG

    CVG is getting excited about this job posting. After all, if you get the job you’ll “define the next generation of gaming software technology.” Unfortunately, it’s a sad fact of job postings in general that they slightly exaggerate the importance of the position in order to score overqualified applicants. “As part of a next generation team, you’ll be… Read More

  • Mossberg explains the difference between Intel and AMD, sort of

    In another installment of “Mossberg’s Mailbox” the tech pundit answers a few questions sent in by readers hoping to glean some knowledge. Not everyone is as savvy as us and knows the difference between AMD and Intel, so Walt does his best to dumb it down. Did he do a good job? How would you explain it? Q: If I buy a PC with an AMD processor instead of an Intel one, will I… Read More

  • Large Hadron Collider webcams

    Obviously the world didn’t end on Wednesday when the Large Hadron Collider fired its first particle beam. The geeks at the LHC aren’t going to make anything that will kill us. They even have a couple of webcams so wannabe’s like you and I can see what’s going on. So far, there are only two of ’em but I’m sure more will come later on. Just screenshots… Read More

  • "Dark Knight" hitting IMAX again in January


    Warner Bros. have their eyes set on swooping up some Oscars this year with the “Dark Knight”, so they’ve announced that Christopher Nolan’s epic sequel in the Dark Knight series will return to IMAX theaters in January to remind voters of how awesome the movie was.

  • Nokia's Ovi Improved With PIM Sync, File Sharing

    Nokia’s Ovi service was originally a simple photo-sharing system that took emailed, uploaded, and MMSed images from your phone or computer and put them online. Fair enough. Now, however, Nokia is adding some compelling features to the online suite to make it considerably more usable for personal and enterprise PIM and file sharing purposes. Read More

  • Internet-connected toaster burns news into bread

    Oh my. It’s this kind of stuff that makes it all worthwhile. I present to you an idea for a toaster that hooks up to your computer and can burn just about anything you throw at it onto the bread you drop into the slots – weather, news, photos – your call. The Scan Toaster is the brainchild of designer Sung Bae Chang and is currently a finalist in the 2008 Electrolux Design… Read More

  • Slacker coming to BlackBerry

    Today at CTIA, Slacker announced that come October they will have a full fledged app ready to roll on BlackBerry devices. I previewed this yesterday on a Bold that happened to be T-Mobile branded, but it’s probably a European model. Anyway, the app was integrated into the BB very well and left rather impressed. The app and service are free, but you do have the option of the pay… Read More

  • Now SD cards will come built-in; and why wasn't this done years ago?

    I’ve always kind of wondered why more phones and media players didn’t have more built-in storage. SD is cheap, and fast enough for most low-demand data uses — mp3s, small videos, any kind of office doc — yet while my phone has a MicroSD slot, I believe its internal storage (the default for pictures, music and so on) is a whopping 16 megabytes. You’d think… Read More

Future collaboration between the companies will focus on… Read More

  • Finally, a reality show about ‘Rock Band 2’

    This is kind of along the lines of the Onion’s World of World of Warcraft spoof, except that it appears to be real. According to a Craigslist post in the LA area, MTV is apparently looking for people to star in a reality show about Rock Band 2. So basically, a reality show about non-musicians with toy instruments pretending to be musicians. And with that, reality TV has officially hit… Read More

  • First lady biographies exclusively head to Kindle

    So how ’bout them first ladies? Pretty interesting, right? Hopefully. Amazon just inked a deal with Globe Pequot Press to offer two books about each of the potential first ladies. They’re exclusive to the Kindle, which is certainly a feather in Amazon’s cap, but I don’t know how much touchy-feely-nes I can handle from books like these. Take the titles, “Cindy… Read More
