    Google Gets In On Ground Level With Drone Maker Titan Buy

    Titan Aerospace, the drone maker Facebook had been in acquisition talks with prior to being bought by Google (as we’ve now confirmed following The WSJ’s initial report), was a name that took many in the industry by surprise. How was it that a company that reportedly has solar-powered drones that can fly at 65,000 feet above sea level for five years without needing to land, did not… Read More

    Xfire To Fly Solo Again, Raises $4 Million From Intel Capital

    Exclusive – Xfire, which operates a social service used by 19 million gamers, has raised $4 million in fresh funding from Intel Capital and unnamed angel investors.

  • Exclusive: Titan Gaming Takes Xfire Off Viacom's Hands

  • New HTC Smartphone Headed to Sprint

    Sprint is getting serious on the smartphone action with the addition of the PPC-6800. A replacement for the aging 6700, the HTC Titan-based device is a WinMo 5, QWERTY sliding powerhouse. Like BoyGenius, we would have like to have seen it shipped with WinMo 6, but an upgrade should be available soon. The phone’s packed to the gills with fun, including a 320×240 touchscreen, WiFi… Read More

  • HTC Titan In The Wild

    Check it. The picture you see is apparently the upcoming HTC Titan, the follow up to the HTC Apache. Yet another boring looking HTC device with a slide out keyboard, the Titan is rumored to carry EV-DO, 256MB of storage, Bluetooth 2.0, and a 2-megapixel camera. Not too shabby, but nothing too exciting here. Obviously if it drops in the US, Verizon or Sprint are bound to carry it. So keep a… Read More
