• Kyte's iPhone 3GS App Doesn't Live-Stream, But It's Fast With Nice Quality Video

    Kyte has just released its new Mobile Producer app into the App Store [iTunes link]. While it doesn’t require you have an iPhone 3GS, if you want to take advantage of its best feature, video, then you must have one. And if you do, I think you’ll be pretty pleased with how well it works. The app, which is $4.99, is very simple. You boot it up, log in (or create a new account)… Read More

  • Make money on your iPhone 3G

    Every year or so I update my MacBook(s), as necessary and I’m always able to sell my fairly well maintained laptops for about 3/4 of the actual price, ensuring I essentially get a nice, big discount on a new MBP. Joel “To The” Johnson found out that the iPhone 3G market works quite similarly, selling his abused 16GB 3G for $300. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: The Palm Pre Touchstone for only $29.99

    The Palm Pre Touchstone got raked over coals when it first launched after someone did a little math and discovered the massive mark-up that the $70 accessory carried. Well, Amazon is selling it for only $29 which is a lot better. There is a little trick to get it for this price though. Read More

  • Google Shares Its Need For Speed

    Google has always been about speed. From its highly streamlined homepage to vast server farms, the company goes to extreme lengths to ensure that all of your search queries are returned in a fraction of a second. Now, it wants the whole web to be that fast. In a video posted to the company’s official blog, a number top Google engineers and evangelists outline Google’s goal: to… Read More

  • NPD confirms: People are still confused by ‘netbooks’

    The NPD released a new report that says, essentially, consumers have no idea what the hell a “netbook” is. Something like 60 percent of consumers who bought a netbook thought that it would have the same capabilities as a notebook. Even more troubling for the companies who produce netbooks is that only 58 percent people who bought a netbook instead of a notebook were satisfied… Read More

  • MySpace Layoffs Coming To Countries Where It Is Getting Trounced By Facebook

    This morning, when MySpace announced the decimation of its international staff (300 out of 450 non-US staff will be let go), CEO Owen Van Natta pinpointed the global offices he considers dispensable. He released a statement saying that while the London, Berlin and Sydney offices will be preserved, MySpace will look to “restructure” the offices in Argentina, Brazil, Canada… Read More

    Have thing for Linux? Need a Wireless-N router that happens to work as a media server, too? Then Linksys has what you’re looking for, nerd. Say hello to the WRT160NL. Read More

  • Sirius XM iPhone app downloaded 500,000 times

    The “Howard who?” jab is unnecessarily provocative, but it helps illustrate a point. According to a leaked internal memo, courtesy of Alley Insider, the Sirius XM iPhone app has been downloaded more than 500,000 times since its release last Thursday. All the assumptions that “no one” would download the app because of <its lack of Howard Stern (and MLB and NFL), it… Read More

  • EZGrill: The $5 single-use grill

    I live on the top floor of a third-floor walkup with no balcony in the middle of Boston. That doesn’t mean I don’t like grilling, though. Granted, I can’t really grill nor do I have any use for a grill, but maybe someday I’ll want to grill somewhere else. What? Now I have to buy a grill? What the hell do I need a grill for if I’m only going to use it once or twice… Read More

  • Zugara's Augmented Reality Dressing Room Is Great If You Don't Care How Your Clothes Fit

    Augmented reality, or the blending of the real world with computer graphics on the fly, is one of the most exciting fields in tech right now. Unfortunately, there haven’t been many practical uses of the technology — we’ve seen some very impressive video game peripherals and a few Terminator-style phone overlays from companies like Layar, Sekai Camera, and Seer Android, but… Read More

  • So Duke Nukem Forever is still in development, along with another Duke game

    I have never seen so many words used to described the goings-on of a near-dead video game developer and its near-dead video game. Only, maybe, nothing is dead at all?! I’m talking about, of course, 3D Realms and Duke Nukem Forever. The big news: apparently 3D Realms/Apogee Ltd. is still working on DNF, but just barely, and is also working on another Duke Nukem game, to be published… Read More

  • Mobile Data: IBM Tags Wimbledon With Seer Android

    Some of the most promising set of mobile apps being built today use a cell phone’s camera and GPS to overlay data onto the real world. In other words, instead of looking at a browser, you look through the camera lens at the real world around you and information is layered on top of the view projected on the small screen. (It’s not just a viewfinder, you know). Last year at… Read More

  • Gmail Makes Its iPhone Web Version More App-Like With Swipe Gestures

    A lot of people complain about Gmail not having a native application on the iPhone. While it’s not clear if Apple will even allow that yet with the new iPhone 3.0 SDK, one thing that is becoming more clear: Soon it won’t need one. The reason is that its iPhone-optimized mobile version continues to get some killer features. The latest is the ability to use the swipe gesture to… Read More

  • Box of Applause is applause in a box

    Buy this “Box of Applause” and put it on your desk at work. Finish those spreadsheets early? Box of Applause. Get your co-worker fired? Box of Applause. Sneak out at noon on Friday? Box of Applause. It’s like a music box, but when you open it, you get a round of applause. Read More

  • Major Nelson: Microsoft already working on new Xbox 360 dashboard

    Major Nelson, whose military credentials I suspect, said on his thrilling podcast at the weekend the Microsoft is already hard at work creating the next version of the Xbox 360 dashboard. Don’t expect a silly name, like NXE, this time around, though. Read More

  • Wireless Xbox 360 mic coming this Fall

    Coming this Fall from Microsoft is a wireless mic that’s compatible with Lips, Guitar Hero Metallica, Rock Band 2, Disney Sing it: HSM 3, and the upcoming Lips: Number One Hits and The Beatles: Rock Band. My guess is the mic will launch just before or at the same time as The Beatles: RB, but what do I know? Look for the wireless mic to retail for $50. Read More

  • Activision ships Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for every platform known to man

    It’s almost Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (aka Megan Fox on an IMAX screen) time! Sadly, I missed the preview they held last night in NYC, which I’m extremely heartbroken over, but I’ll pay to see the movie regardless. Anyway, Activision is now shipping the game companion and I’m pretty excited to play it after having previewed it two months prior. Mostly… Read More
