  • CrunchArcade Preview: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen video game

    I’m still pissed off that Bay gave Optimus moving robotic lips in the first film, but the overall awesomeness of seeing CGI Transformers 20+ years after the fact allows me to tolerate such insubordination.

  • Nokia N95 Preview Nokia knows intelligent design. Not unlike God, who apparently formed bananas to fit gracefully into the human hand, Nokia pays close attention to its product life cycle. While many of the N-series phones… Read More

  • 13 Minutes with the Nokia N76: 12 Minutes too Many? Stefan at Ring Nokia loves Nokia. He wants to work for them. He loves them so much that he locked himself up with the N76 and videotaped himself talking about it for 13 minutes.
