• AT&T Settles Class-Action Lawsuit

    If you are an AT&T mobile service customer you may want to check your past bills carefully. For at least four years content providers have been sneaking charges onto AT&T bills for services like ringtones, jokes and horoscopes.

  • Whrrl rolls out client for BlackBerry users

    Pelago’s mobile social discovery service Whrrl ties the social networking concept into a map of your surrounding area, allowing users to rate and review local spots, and share their current location and status with trusted friends. While it’s an awesome idea, its growth thus far has been stunted by its limited list of native mobile clients. Sure, users could interact with Whrrl via… Read More

  • Apple should hire this guy, but not as a cameraman

    Someone named Umang Dokey posted this iPhone 2 mock-up as an entry for an iLounge contest. His work is almost flawless and the tilt concepts are amazingly cool. Sadly, Umang filmed the damn thing sideways which kind of detracts from the experience. Better luck next time, Dokey! via Giz Read More

  • Nekura Progression and Scramble watches: LED and LCDs make sweet love

    These two new watches from Toykoflash feature a unique LED system that can change the face color at the touch of a button.

  • Samsung F480: Your daily dose of WTF?

    Are they selling something? Making a comment on male-female relations? Hiring for an a cappella group? All we do know is that this is a non-US cartoon made for the Samsung F480, a phone we all want but will never, ever own because it’s Asia-only. Read More

  • Jimmy Wales: Wikia Search Finally Doesn't Suck

    Wikia Search is finally ready to play with. Jimmy Wales admits that up until now his company’s project to apply the wiki concept to search: Pretty much sucked. It has not been usable on a day to day basis. We agree. But today, Wikia Search is beginning to suck a lot less. It has only indexed 30 million Websites, but it is finally rolling out a set of editing features that lets… Read More

  • Lumos Labs Gets $3 Million Funding for Brain Games

    As you age your brain slows down, your memory goes, and your attention lapses. Online brain fitness games like Lumosity sell the promise of stopping that decline. But as the chart below shows, it is all downhill after 30. (The chart is based on the brain performance index scores of 40,000 Lumosity users). Lumosity lets members play games designed to improve their memory, processing speed… Read More

  • DriverSide Takes The Guesswork Out of Car Repairs

    What’s your favorite car site? If you can’t pick one, you’re probably in the majority: despite the abundance of successful auto sites, few people ever frequent one regularly. That’s because most of these sites are primarily concerned with buying and selling cars rather than their long term maintenance. DriverSide, a new startup that launches today, is looking to… Read More

  • Road Warriors Take Note: MSI Launches Another Ultraportable

    If you’re anything like me, you might be tired of lugging around a full-sized laptop from airport to airport and meeting to meeting. Enter the ultraportables. While we are all aware of the cake-cutting Air, manufacturers like ASUS and now MSI are jumping into the ultraportable market with laptops that are usable and highly portable. The MSI Wind — I wonder where they got the name? Read More

  • iPhone 2 Rumor Round-up

    With seven days to go before WWDC, the 3G iPhone rumor mill is pretty much on fire. Some of the rumors are pretty bonkers, but most of the more popular ones are pretty darn reasonable. In the name of science, we’ve pushed all of the rumors through our FCF (Fanboy Crap Filter), and rated the more likely rumors on the PKL (Pre-keynote Legitometer) scale. Lets take a look: Rumor: It’ll… Read More

  • Intel's PAN technology: Bluetooth's worst nightmare?

    Intel and startup Ozmo Devices are collaborating to provide an alternative to Bluetooth for short-range, high-speed wireless connections. Intel wants to integrate Ozmo’s Personal Area Network technology into its Centrino laptops, which, thus equipped, could use their Wi-Fi bandwidth for both internet access and nearer, more data-hungry connections like headsets and music… Read More

  • Google: Android for sure in 4th quarter of 2008

    There’s been waffling about the date Android handsets will become available. I’ve heard February, March (clearly wrong), Summer, late Summer, “second half of 2008” and “late 2008.” Well, not surprisingly, it looks like the latest estimate is the most accurate. Google has decreed: “We’re still on track to announce Android-powered phones this year. Read More

  • ffwd: Channel Surfing Comes To The Web… And Your Wii

    Channel surfing has a bad rap, at least according to iLike co-founder Patrick Koppula. Koppula says that this time honored tradition of staring at the television and repeatedly hitting a button is actually a highly efficient means of content selection. Today Koppula unveils his latest project, ffwd which is trying to take channel surfing to the web. ffwd behaves like a video recommendation… Read More

  • TechCrunch Euro Tour – Update

    TechCrunch UK is taking the TechCrunch brand on a little road-trip (OK, plane trip) around Europe this summer and afterwards, making face-to-face contact with Europe’s best and brightest startups.
