  • The Canon 5D Mark II was held back by the marketing department

    Per a Canon employee talking to Tech Digest, the engineers behind the 5D Mark II were held back by the megapixel race instead of focusing on the sensor. The chaps in marketing reportedly wanted to beat out Nikon’s latest DSLR flagship (rumors says it’s coming tomorrow 9/18 btw) and us consumers are apparently dumb, paying attention just to the mighty megapixel.  Read More

  • We've got a new look!

    After a few years on the theme of yesteryear, MobileCrunch has been given a facelift under the mighty styling scalpel of Mark Hendrickson. Readers of TechCrunch should feel right at home with the new look. It’s sharp, it’s clean, and it’s just oh-so-easy on the eyes.

    MobileCrunch.com, our comely sister in this thing we call the blogoscape, just got an amazing new redesign courtesy of Senor Hendrickson over at TC. Pop in to celebrate her face-lift and stay for the mobile industry news served up by the inimitable and not-fired Greg Kumparak. Read More

  • "Grapefruit" 360-degree video camera – wonderful or terrifying?


    I can’t tell whether the idea of this 360-degree video camera is a good or a bad thing, but I’m surprised we haven’t seen more stuff like it. Stitching the images together from a live feed can’t be that hard if you control the hardware — this might be really nice for concerts and stuff. Or, alternately, we’re heading towards a situation where everybody… Read More

  • Confirmed: Microsoft cutting Jerry Seinfeld ads tomorrow

    We’ve confirmed with multiple sources that Microsoft will announce the second phase of their $300 million marketing campaign, which, unfortunately, axes Jerry Seinfeld.

  • Video: How to completely obliterate your HDD with thermite

    Yeah, I’m thinking that’s a bit overkill. But I guess if you truly need a single hard drive to be completely destroyed, a pound of thermite burning at 5000 degrees is one way to do it. Although “burnin’ stuff up good” isn’t necessarily gadget-related, this little how-to at Hack A Day is remarkably thorough in what mixtures to use, how to ignite correctly… Read More

  • Next NVIDIA generation features faulty last-gen solder?

    NVIDIA’s “abnormal” number of GPU failures have been the subject of much discussion and speculation during the last couple months. The culprit seems to have been the high-lead solder, which everybody rightly assumed NVIDIA would abandon — after all, it’s cost the company hundreds of millions in direct costs and probably far more in lost sales, lost brand… Read More
