  • Lala May Have Just Built The Next Revolution In Digital Music

    Call me a skeptic. When Lala came to our offices last week trying to convince me that music was heading to the cloud, and that they were going to help lead the transition, I wasn’t convinced at first. The company has floundered for years, moving from a CD swapping service to a failed music hub that shut down last summer. But now they’ve completely redesigned and are coming back… Read More

  • Is The Economic Crisis Affecting European Startups At All?

    A lot has already been said and written about the current economic crisis, and how the financial meltdown is and will keep on affecting startups in the US. VC’s and angel investors are telling their portfolio companies to say goodbye to the good times and batten down the hatches, and at the same time raising the bar for new financing rounds, while startup CEO’s are executing… Read More

  • Robot planter walks around to stay in the light


    I have no words. This is the greatest thing I have ever seen. I get pretty diffuse light in my apartment, so this wouldn’t really be necessary — plus, my place is the size of a postage stamp and this thing would probably trip me up or crawl in bed with me at night. I guess that wouldn’t be so bad. I love everything about this little robot. Oh my god, how can you not?

  • Happy Birthday, Gran Turismo!

    We’re an open-minded bunch at the Gear and we really wish folks would throw more events like Downshift Sessions’s 10th Anniversary party for Gran Turismo that celebrates the marriage between automotive design, art, gaming and music. Because gadgets aren’t drab little things anymore and we like that added touch of art to go with our gear. I do, at least. Last week at the… Read More

  • Man arrested in connection with 100 stolen copies of Gears of War 2, Fable II

  • Review: Corinex GameNet powerline networking kit

    A little about me; I don’t like the word “buffering” to be quite honest with you. It’s not the word itself, it’s that I used to see that word all the time when I’d try to use my Xbox 360 to stream HD videos from my PC. As this is a review of a powerline networking product, I’m happy to report that said product – the Corinex GameNet –… Read More

  • Graze – not a web app, but a darned smart idea

    Can an e-commerce company scale like a web app? The answer, as we all know, is no. However, given that Amazon ‘scaled’ by creating a market for items which could fit through a letterbox, a UK company plans to do the same – this time with food, specifically healthy food like nuts and dried berries. Graze is a new UK startup created by Graham Bosher, ex of LoveFilm, who decided… Read More

  • Bloglines Gets A Band-Aid; And We Hear It's Still For Sale

    Bloglines got a much needed band-aid this weekend that fixed the feed update problem that has plagued users for weeks and caused long-gone founder Mark Fletcher to write “Bloglines, please stop sucking. It’s been a couple weeks now. I don’t want to have to move to Google Reader. Sigh.” In our continued testing we see all of our feeds now updating regularly on both… Read More
