  • Negative Momentum: Newspaper Ad Revenues Gaining Downhill Speed (Even Online Is Declining)

    Can it get any worse for the newspaper industry? The steep decline in print advertising just keeps getting steeper and, for the first time, even online ad sales have gone down.

  • CEDIAcrunch hands-on: JBL Control NOW loudspeaker

    JBL announced these quarter-toroid speakers a while ago, but seeing them in person really shows how versatile the speakers are. The Control NOW loudspeaker can sit alone, be hung on the wall, wrap around a corner, but when their powers combine, they form a round speaker thingie. I could totally see these speaker donuts hanging at an outdoor bistro or inside an upscale bar. They are kind… Read More

  • CEDIAcrunch hands-on: Polk Atrium outdoor speakers

    Word leaked out two weeks ago that Polk Audio planned on releasing the Atrium Sat 10 and Sub 30 outdoor satellite/subwoofer system here at CEDIA. It’s kind of a novel idea if you think about it, with outdoor theaters and people craving the latest multichannel audio, I guess it’s a natural evolution. They sound great in harmony, but I don’t get the design. Is the… Read More

    So the tech and geek crowd is a little underwhelmed by the new $300 million Microsoft advertising campaign featuring Jerry Seinfeld that kicked off tonight. It’s mostly content free, with just one mention of Microsoft near the end. It’s a far cry from the brilliant Microsoft v. mac ads that Apple has run over the years. So what’s the deal?

  • Secretive Storage Company Dropbox Took Sequoia Funding in 2007

    Dropbox is one of those infuriating startups that just won’t show us much of what they’re up to beyond the basic user experience (see video). We first saw them at Y Combinator demo day in August 2007, and talked to them again in March when they went into private beta. It looks like Sequoia was on them fast though. Last September, we’ve learned, the company raised a small… Read More
