  • Uwe Boll would love to direct a GTA movie!

    A Grand Theft Auto movie would be “super interesting” for Mr. Uwe Boll, the German director of great movies such as House of the Dead and Postal.

  • Microsoft's 'Worldwide Telescope' now available

    Joining Google Sky and Stellarium is Microsoft’s entrant to the stars, Worldwide Telescope. I’ve been dinking around with it for about a half hour and it’s pretty cool.

  • Kodak to sell pre-loaded picture frames

    I got my mom a digital picture frame and I don’t think she turned it on. Even though it’s one of those fancy ones with Wi-Fi and web sharking, she just can’t fathom its manifold complexities.

  • Olympus E-520 dSLR: Image stabilization, on-the-fly white balance adjustment

    By July you’ll have another (mid-range) digital SLR to choose from, the Olympus E-520. Improvements from the E-510, released last year, are incremental at best, focusing on “extras” rather than core photographic technologies. It’s a speed bump, to put it in Mac terms. New (or better) this time around, according to the carefully worded press release: improved in-body… Read More

  • Texas Instruments drops world's first WUXGA DLP chip into projector

    When Devin and Matt were in town for the CrunchNetwork party we decided to go and see Iron Man on opening day.

It was brighter and crisper. DLP makes good stuff. Today, TI announced that the DLP group has… Read More

  • Are You Hyperconnected

    A survey conducted by research firm IDC and sponsored by Nortel Networks asked 2,367 people what item would they choose to take with them if they had to be absent from their homes for 24 hours.
