  • Hulu Launches All Kinds Of Stuff To Keep You Defocused On Joost

    There’s no way Hulu is going to let Joost get a foothold in the race for attention in online professionally produced video. So what happens when Joost ditches the download, goes all browser and launches a social network around their content? Hulu can do that. No problem. Tonight, via a 1 am press release, Hulu launches: show recommendations, user discussion forums for programs and… Read More

  • Scarlet and RED Epic getting total reboot


    What the hell?! I think Jim Jannard took some peyote at Photokina and brought his laptop. He’s posted on the forums saying everything’s going pineapples for Scarlet and RED Epic. We have changed everything about Scarlet because the market has changed and we have discovered a lot of things in the process. We have a new vision.
    Wipe you minds of the past announced Scarlet. Forget… Read More

  • T-Mobile G1 specs leaked prior to announcement

    Talk about cutting it close. With less than 12 hours before T-Mobile officially pulls back the curtain on the ultra-hyped G1, the floodgates have opened. Images extracted from the depths of T-Mobile’s G1 site have begun hitting tip boxes, and now TmoNews has managed to get their hands on a bunch of specs and details. What’s known so far: In-store, immediate sales only available… Read More

  • Eye-Fi cards now magically will go twice as fast


    The famous Eye-Fi card, which beams your photos wirelessly from your camera to your computer or what have you, is getting an upgrade. Starting October 5 (If I’m reading this correctly), Eye-Fi cards will now upload at twice the speeds they used to. Am I missing something here? Quote: Eye-Fi Inc., makers of the world’s first wireless memory card for digital cameras, today… Read More

  • Google Chrome Comic Books Fetch $3,175 For Charity

    Great news – we decided to give Google Chrome comic books to the top two bidders (with their permission) in our auction for charity.

Google arranged to have both comic books autographed by creator Scott McCloud… Read More

  • Android G1 video feed up and waiting

    It’s not quite a leak and it doesn’t quite make sense but T-Mobile has posted the G1 news portal with a few placeholder links and a a teaser for the G1 press conference video feed. This is actually quite odd considering every other company would sit on this news until it squeaked. Read More

  • Laser pointers finally do something useful

    It’s about time. The storied laser pointer has, let’s admit it, gotten pretty boring over the years. People have returned to a simpler time of retro pointing, using old yardsticks and their trusty, dusty fingers, and the last time anyone laughed at the laser-pointer-on-someone’s-face gag, the elder Bush was in office. So a big thank you is in order to Alpay Kasal for inventing… Read More

  • Help Key: How to protect your webmail with GnuPG and FireGPG

    Encryption scares a lot of people – me included – because it’s based on really complicated mathematics. Thankfully, the state of encryption software has advanced sufficiently in the last couple of years that it’s pretty easy for laypeople like us to take advantage of the protection it offers. Just like you don’t shop online without a secured HTTPS connection… Read More

  • The new GTA is the old GTA


    Ah, the circle is completed. The GTA that we knew and fell in love with back in the ’90s is making a comeback in spirit with GTA: Chinatown Wars on the DS. Yes, the cel-shaded look is trendy but the isometric viewpoint and map/minigame screen are very suited to the DS (more natural than the Wii, apparently). Somehow I doubt it will have the same level of ultraviolence that GTA and GTA… Read More

  • Aussie school to launch iPhone game development course

    So, you’ve heard the stories of developers making enough coin selling iPhone applications to swim around in it Scrooge McDuck style. “I love iPhone applications more than anyone!”, you thought to yourself, “I should make them!” So you picked up a book on Objective C and Cocoa, spent about 20 minutes with it, and then decided to dedicate your life to something… Read More

  • Yikes: cell phones causing cancer again

    Well, this latest news is less than thrilling, since I started using a cell phone at about 15 (it was a brick). Swedish researchers have found that children who started using cell phones before the age of 20 were five times more likely to develop cancer. The quote, please: “People who started mobile phone use before the age of 2 had more than five-fold increase in glioma”, a cancer… Read More

  • Rockstar: GTA "didn't feel natural" to develop on the Wii

    Imagine: Grand Theft Auto on the Wii. Need to hail a cab? Just wave the wiimote around in the air. Tryin’ to stab a guy? Shank him with the wiimote. Taking your e-girlfriend out for burgers? Eat the wiimote. Sounds like a perfect fit, right? Rockstar doesn’t think so. In a recent Nintendo Power interview, Rockstar co-founder said that they didn’t develop a GTA game for the… Read More
