• The five USB port Mac Mini might be and probably is a fake

    A pic surfaced yesterday showing what could be the next Mac Mini but somebody with way too much time examined the photo under filters only to crush our dreams. Apparently the digital artifacts don’t line up or match or something like that, which proves beyond a doubt that at least this pic is not real. Sorry. Super big pic after the jump if you must see why this isn’t the next… Read More

  • Fotolia Reaches One Million Registered Members And Five Million Images

    Micro-stock photography is alive and well. Fotolia tells us they have just reached their one millionth registered member and now have 5 million stock images for sale, for as little as 14 cents, and typically a dollar or two. Of those one million registered members, 860,00 are active (defined as having made at least one credit card purchase or uploaded content within the past three months). Read More

  • Booting services add to the fun of Xbox Live

    Are you 12? Do you not like someone on Xbox Live? Do you not have to go to the table right now and finish your yogurt? Well, you’re in luck because for $20 you can kick someone off of Xbox Live. A fairly breathless story by the BBC describes hackers who send DDOS attacks to certain IP addresses, kicking the victim’s IP address off of XBL. There are two popular methods, one… Read More

  • Apple's sales drop, the world gasps

    OMG. What is happening to the world. Microsoft is laying people off, Sony records first loss in 17 years, and now, Apple’s US computer sales fell six percent over last January. The company probably isn’t hurting though thanks to the hefty premium pricing, or as we like to call it, the Apple Tax. Apple’s global sales however are doing just fine and grew nine percent during… Read More

  • T-Mobile-bound HTC Magic spotted in Google Demo?

    Could this be an early sign the HTC and T-Mobile will buddy up once again for the G2? Maybe. The T-Mobile logo does sport the one-less dot design that’s unique to the United States market, but that alone isn’t exactly solid proof. So far the only word about the HTC Magic is that it’s a Vodafone exclusive handset, which doesn’t sit well with American mobile users. Read More

  • Forget About Those Leaked Downloads, Listen To U2's Entire New Album on MySpace Music

    I’m not sure if this was moved up in response to leaked copiess of U2’s newest album, No Line On The Horizon spreading across the Internet, but the entire the album will be streamed for free at MySpace Music. The player in U2’s MySpace Music page features a single, but if you click on the top album in the sidebar, you can hear the entire thing. MySpace says that the… Read More

  • Why the Smart VCs Are Boarding their Jets

    I started my career as a finance reporter covering wonky subjects like banks, bonds and agribusiness. I ended up in Silicon Valley covering tech, because it was the late 1990s, and I was doing what finance reporters are supposed to do: Follow the money. I’ve since realized if you want to cover startups well, it’s more complicated than that: You have to distill between the pioneer… Read More

  • Popjam takes Twitter – applies LOLs

    Popjam is a new ‘social humour’ site which has launched using the Twitter ‘friend/follow’ model of social networking. If fact – but for the images of LOLcats and videos – it is so similar to Twitter in appearance and operation that it could be mistaken for a pure Twitter clone. But what we have here is a kind of Twitter-meets-Digg-meets-jokes. Unlike niche… Read More

  • CBS Interactive: "Well Within Our Rights To Stream Hulu Content"

    We broke the story of Hulu pulling the content plug out of TV.com earlier this week, and two days ago we also reported that content owners forced Boxee to stop streaming Hulu content as well. Now the owners of TV.com, CBS Interactive, have responded with a message that sparked the Wall Street Journal to headline an article on the reaction “CBS Strikes Back at Hulu”. What did… Read More

  • YouTube Annotations Get Social, Add A Much-Needed 'Off' Button

    YouTube has just launched an expansion to its Annotations feature that gives users the ability to invite their friends to help spruce up their videos using text boxes, labels, and interactive buttons. In the past I’ve been somewhat critical of these annotations, primarily because they can be really annoying in the wrong hands. But tonight YouTube has also introduced a oft-requested… Read More

  • Quicken Online Can't Believe Mint Is Doing So Well; Sends Threatening Letter

    Intuit, the company behind the well-known Quicken suite of money management software that includes Quicken Online, can’t believe how well its competitor Mint is doing. In fact, they were so bewildered by Mint’s claims of gaining 3,000 new users a day and jumping from 600,000 to 850,000 users in a matter of months that they decided to send a threatening letter demanding an… Read More

  • iPhone turn-by-turn directions already available with G-Map


    With everyone complaining and wishing for turn-by-turn GPS directions on the iPhone, it looks like one app flew under the radar. Called G-Map, this application originally got bad ratings with most users saying that it didn’t work. Well they fixed it and released a 1.2 version that now gets 3 to 5 stars. Read More

  • San Francisco mayor blogs about city's new EV chargers

    It was reasonable to guess that change like this would find its start in that heaven for both car lovers and hippies, California. Specifically San Francisco, because I don’t think LA has any plans to go electric any time soon. SF mayor Gavin Newsom wrote a blog post at Gas 2.0 describing the first (hopefully of many) electric vehicle charge points, which seem to be called both… Read More
