• Ditch your old paper business cards for a dot matrix one

    I’ve contemplated ditching my business cards for some time, but every convention I attend and every PR flack requires me to donate one dead tree to them. A friend recently told me he had ditched business cards altogether a while back and immediately directs people to connect with him on linkedin, which is a great idea. But, I really want a kickass looking business card that won’t… Read More

  • Some CrunchBase API Stats and Apps

    Six weeks ago we launched an API for our technology database, CrunchBase. The idea was to give away lots of clean, structured data about the companies we cover, data that could be used to build new services and improve upon existing ones. Since then we’ve seen a number of impressive things built on top of the API. And the traffic has started to add up: between July 15th and August 15th… Read More

  • German Custom agents spotted at IFA 2008

    Large, international tradeshows can showcase the absolute bleeding edge of technology. Sometimes though, said tech was developed with the unknown help of another company, so obviously, this can come to a breaking point at these tradeshows. According to The Register, German Custom agents have been busy this year at IFA.  A spokesman for German Customs told us: “We’ve raided… Read More

  • Harman Kardon breaks glass with GLA-55 speakers

    Indiana Jones or Superman prop; classy or just plain tacky? I can’t decide but I’ve to give the boys over at Harman Kardon for suck a clever name: GLA-55. ‘Cause it’s made out of glass. Get it?  Anyway, getting down to the details. Only two to three thousand are going to be made and priced at £500. Within the crystal speakers lay a 56 watt per speaker… Read More

  • How not to hide from CCTV cameras

    There’s been a lot of lip service paid about hiding from CCTV cameras using LEDs and IR lamps. Well, randolfo on Instructables just showed us that none of those solutions work and, in fact, will make you stand out even more. Towards this end, I lined the hood of a hoodie with 10 high-intensity IR LEDs all the while documenting the project to share with others. In fact, I was super-excited… Read More

  • Sexy EEPROM cufflinks


    ROM — James ROM. I know this kind of thing gets done every once in a while, but that doesn’t change the fact that these are lava-hot. The colors are tasteful (although the white balance in the photo was irreparably messed up, silver and black are classic), and the design is understated. If someone looks closely, you get credit for geekiness and stylishness. How often does that happen? Read More

The console version will hit store shelves on the 24th while the PC version is still set for October 31.

  • Valve announces dedicated servers for Left 4 Dead on 360


    Boy am I excited for L4D. I got to play it at E3 and it was fun as hell, and although I never trust console ports of PC FPSes, at least Valve is doing it right. Playing online will, if I read this correctly, always take place on a dedicated server, which means no more juggling connections to find out who’s the best host. DLC (new weapons, maps, and monsters) will be quicker to come than… Read More

  • Orinda says Sony PS3 infringes on their patent, sues, needs a kick to the balls, too


    Why is America so freakin’ sue-happy. The latest comes from Orinda Intellectual Properties USA as they claim that the Sony Playstation 3 infringes on patent #5,438,560. Said patent depicts the methods by which you record and reproduce information on an optical disc. Sounds absurd, right? What a bunch of jackasses. Seriously, they want a jury trial and the immediate injunction on… Read More

  • Enhanced MPAII monitors from Samsung announced at IFA


    So what’s “Enhanced MPAII”? It’s a technology that was developed to reduce ghosting effects and reduced the MPRT from 27ms to 9ms (although, the spec sheet says 5ms, but they could be two different things). That applies to both the SyncMaster 2233HZ and SyncMaster 2243HZ, which both have resolutions of 1680×1050. Specs after the jump. Read More
