  • Movie Labels To Launch New "Open Market" Play Anywhere Scheme As Last Ditch Effort To Save DRM

    Most of the big movie studios and many online movie retailers are preparing to to launch a new initiative tentatively called Open Market, first proposed last year by Sony Pictures, we’ve learned.

  • NZXT's Whisper case: sweet, quiet, and cool full tower

    And I was just beginning to tire of my little mid tower, how convenient. This Whisper case from NZXT is right up my alley. I don’t need portability, or fancy acrylic siding, but what I do need is lots of space and quiet running. And with foam padding all over the inside of this mother and room for nine hard drives in there, I think I should be safe. Hopefully I’ll be able to tell… Read More

  • Review: Aussie Soles

    In our long tradition of receiving strangely inapplicable pitches that somehow just work we present the Aussie Soles. These are not Crocs, although, ummm, I’d be concerned about patent infringement – after all they’re calling their snuggly boot line SnUggs. That said, I’m wearing the Aussie Soles Marines right now and, as Peter points out, as if there weren’t… Read More

  • Android: More info on the G1

    The fun doesn’t stop, folks. The same chaps who brought us "official" images of the G1 this morning have revealed a mighty fine list of specs for the T-Mo Android handset.

  • CrunchDeal: Amazon puts more Blu-ray discs on sale

    Ah, the end of the of the (physical) format wars. Now you can purchase away without fear of your movies quickly fading into obsolescence. Amazon is running a 45% off sale, (except for a few stragglers at 43%) on eight selected Warner Home Video titles. And no, they’re not all crap. That is unless you consider GoodFellas to be crap.

  • Spore: Galactic Edition unboxed

    Whoo! With just about 2 weeks left before we’ll all be roaming the Spore universe as questionably shaped creatures of our own design, I’m finally letting myself get excited about this game. While we’ve known what Spore: Galactic Edition would include for some time now (Game/Art DVDs, 128 pg Art of Spore book, 100 pg manual, and a poster), no one has really seen much of the… Read More

  • Review: Naneu K4L

    Naneu makes high quality camera bags that double as backpacks. We reviewed the K3 last year and found one minor problem but the K4L has addressed the issue and I believe it’s one of the best camera/laptop bags I’ve used.

  • TechCrunch50 Isn't About The Parties.

    TechCrunch50 is all about the startups. But 50 startups (its actually 52) launching over three days is a lot to digest.

  • Toshiba launches the TLP-XE30U 3LCD projector

    Business types take notice. Toshiba is launching a new, mobile projector aimed right at you suits. The TLP-XE30U might not have a great name but the 3,000 ANSI lumen brightness, along with a nice three-year warranty should make up for it. It’s got a blackboard mode along with a one-touch auto screen setup for quick pre-meeting prep time. Overall though, this is just… Read More
