• NYC's Pogby Aims To Become The OpenTable For Events

    Why is it that you can book a table at a fancy restaurant through OpenTable, but you can’t book the bar for a corporate party?

  • Celebrities + Twitter + A Good Cause = A Retweet Explosion Tomorrow?

    The race between actor Ashton Kutcher and CNN to a million Twitter followers at first seemed to be little more than an exercise in online vanity. But then it transformed into a race to help out a cause, Malaria No More, in a meaningful way. But really, why does anyone need a race to do that? With that in mind, tomorrow, Kutcher, with his nearly 1.4 million followers, and Digg’s Kevin… Read More

  • LG Renoir KC910 goes pink

    Whoa! A pink phone! We haven’t written about a pink phone in months. It seemed like every company on the planet was re-releasing all of their popular handsets in pink for a few months there – then nothing. Looks like LG wants to kickstart the trend back up. Because nothing makes old things new again like a fancy paint job, LG is re-releasing the six month old Renoir KC910 in… Read More

  • What could have been: Nintendo Wii Remote

    To be quite honest, I’m surprised that it’s taken so long for someone to dig up the old patents for the Nintendo Wii Remote. Not that I’m the type to have gone digging for it, but the Wii has been out since ’06. Well, kudos to Siliconera for doing all the hard work on this one. Other patent images were found for the Classic Controller and Nunchuck, but the Wiimote seemed… Read More

  • Bell&Ross BR 01-93 24H GMT: Bringing it all back home

    Finally, a B&R I can stand behind. I love B&R. I love GMTs. This is like two great tastes that taste great together. This new model is a bog standard GMT with a stationary central bezel – which means you can’t change the 24-hour markings – and a movement that will move the hour hand back and forth to show the local time as well as the time at home.

    Still anxiously awaiting a release of the Android v1.5 “Cupcake” build sometime this month? It looks like it’s time to uncross your fingers and take a breath.

  • Apple doesn't like offensive apps – but offensive and pretty? Approved!

    After Apple announced that roughly 98% of applications that came there way were being approved within 7 days, there was a lull in the barrage of App Store submission horror stories bombarding our inbox. We thought that perhaps Apple had figured things out on their end, and that everyone was just happy; alas, it seems like everyone was just waiting for something like Baby Shaker before they… Read More

  • Most G1 Owners Love Apps — But Not All

    Some numbers we published yesterday showed that while iPhone owners (not surprisingly) love to download apps, owners of other smartphones do not. As we noted, the numbers seemed a bit incomplete since the Android platform wasn’t represented. We asked Compete, which took the survey, to send those our way. To be clear, the sample size is “very small,” but it’s… Read More

    Lenovo is “exploring” the possibility of a ThankPad-branded netbook. Such a netbook would, one guesses, be the first specifically aimed at the business crowd. Does this mean that we’re beginning to see the blurring of the line between netbooks and notebooks? One can dream, friends. One can dream. Read More

  • Etymotic now offering ACS custom molding on the hf2 earphones

    A prominent sound engineer once told me that Etymotic was one of three headphone manufacturers in existence today that actually produces high fidelity in-ear ‘phones worth buying. That’s a pretty bold statement, but an accurate one. Of all the Etymotic earphones that I’ve tried, I’ve never had issue with the tree tips since they provide more than adequate… Read More
