  • Psismic Matches People Over Things They Like

    Psismic has a novel approach to internet dating. Rather than simply stating who you are, or taking a personality profile, Psismic lets users upload interesting pictures and videos, text posts and links.

  • Fallout 3 acheivements now online

    The full list of achievements for Fallout 3 is now online. There’s 50 of ’em worth 1,000 points, so nothing out of the ordinary. One of them is called “You Gotta Shoot ‘Em in the Head,” so don’t tell Jack Thompson about it. Read More

  • Nokia's Comes With Music launches next month in the UK

    Nokia’s Comes With Music will launch in the UK next month, before spreading to the Continent and to Asia next year.

  • Chrome: Google's new Web browser

    While not totally a surprise, Google announced (somewhat accidentally) not too long ago that it will launch an open source Web browser later today, named Chrome. (Screenshots have also leaked.) Quite literally, every site on the Web is talking about it, because when Google jumps, we all need to say “how high?” Google’s rationale for launching a new Web browser is that… Read More

  • Happy Tenth Birthday Google! When Are We Celebrating?

    One day this month will mark Google’s official tenth birthday. They’ll most likely celebrate with a blog post and a special logo (this one was tweaked based on an earlier one). And we’ll see a slew of articles about how much they’ve accomplished in those ten years. A few publications couldn’t wait and got out there with their Google tributes last month. So all we… Read More

  • Hurricane In Louisiana? This Time, FEMA Is Prepared. This Time, FEMA Has MySpace Widgets.

    FEMA isn’t screwing around this time. There’s a hurricane hitting the gulf coast, and they are not going to take the blame if things go wrong. They’ve evacuated 2 million people, for example. And now, they’ve got widgets, which have been created by the Department of Homeland Security. Earlier this evening, MySpace says, Homeland Security phoned MySpace’s Chief… Read More

  • Meet Chrome, Google's Windows Killer

    Make no mistake. The cute comic book and the touchy-feely talk about user experience is little more than a coat of paint on top of a monumental hatred of Microsoft. Chrome, the Webkit-based Google browser that launches tomorrow at Google.com/chrome, will give them a real foothold on the desktop and way more control over how web applications perform. They’ve built their own Javascript… Read More

  • Google Launches Video For Businesses

    This certainly won’t be the most interesting product launch of the day for Google, but it’s worth noting anyway. This morning Google is launching Google Video for business, a customized video platform aimed at businesses for internal use.

  • Why Twitter is winning

    Twitter is winning and most of its competitors remain in denial. In spite of almost 5 months of unavailability of its most viral service, Twitter remains the platform of choice for most users. FriendFeed remains a hybrid of conversations and semi-realtime aggregator, capturing most of the energy of Google Reader as a citation engine but stubbornly refusing to allow its metadata to flow back… Read More

  • Review: Zv-100 ZvBox

    There hasn’t been a gadget that I was initially interested about more than the ZvBox. In my world of 250 press releases a week and thousands of random gadgets, that’s something. The device hijacks a QAM channel over your home’s coax network and streams digital media through it. Since most people already have coax ran, at lease close to their HDTVs, the concept is solid.

Update 2: It looks like Google has at least semi-launched its Chrome site here. It provides this screenshot of the browser. Google… Read More
