Yahoo! Messenger now censors the links you share

We’ve all thought it, but never dared think it could be true: what if Microsoft, Yahoo, and AOL actively monitor our instant messenger chats? What if mentions of ‘bomb’ and ‘underage’ are tracked and sent to law enforcement agencies? What if chat providers don’t agree with the things we say, or the links we share, [...]

White Epic 4G Touch to grace Sprint come January, proves your wildest dreams can come true

If you thought Sprint was going to let T-Mobile and AT&T be the only US carriers to offer white Galaxy S IIs, think again. Per Sprintfeed is a supposed internal memo pegging the carrier’s bleached variant of the GSII for January 8th, 2012. For those keeping score at home, that’ll be nearly a month after [...]

TweetDeck to launch as HTML5 Web app, now accepting beta testers

When TweetDeck landed in the Chrome Web Store, it seemed like an indication that it might eventually evolve into a pure HTML5 Web app. Now it looks as though that’s exactly what’s going to happen, with TweetDeck announcing that a new, not-just-for-Chrome Web client is ready for beta testing. It’s a natural progression for TweetDeck, [...]

Gorgeous, Minimal Wallet Cut From One Piece of Leather

Why is it that the simplest, plainest designs always cost the most? Possibly because the resulting elegance comes from lots of hard work. Or maybe it’s just that the best products use the best raw materials. Whatever the reason, I must have this beautifully simple wallet, despite its $90 price tag. The billfold–by Noah Lambert–is [...]

Balance is a challenging mouse-based physics game

Years of computer use have taught us that the mouse cursor is “above” the windows. It doesn’t push anything around; at least not without you clicking anything. Balance takes that ingrained bit of knowledge and cancels it out. Suddenly your cursor (a blue dot) is solid – and if it touches the blue block, it [...]

This Nerdy Instrument is Part Atari Console Part Guitar [Video]

The gAtari is a “musical instrument” that basically consists of an Atari 2600 playing pre-programmed tunes, which has been hacked together with a few guitar effects processors. It’s kind of like an Atari keytar. The resulting music is scatterbrained weirdness that’s impossible to describe.

He Touched Me – A Review


The morning after: PlayStation Vita sales go cold during first full week in Japan

It’s hard to set much store by early sales performance, particularly after the evergreen 3DS faced such a rocky road. Nevertheless, the Vita’s latest stats do look disappointing for such a highly anticipated — not to mention high-quality — console: after shifting a remarkable 321,000 units during its first two days on sale in Japan, [...]

Nearly 40% Of Facebook Users Are Mobile App Users

According to new data from Benedict Evans for Enders Analysis, the number of monthly active users of Facebook’s mobile apps recently passed the 300 million mark.

Wicked Audio’s Solus headphones let you listen like a DJ at the flick of a switch

For what it’s worth, Wicked Audio has a habit of producing egregiously loud headphones — looks-wise, that is. Hence our surprise, when we glanced at its latest red and black offering in our Gmail inbox. The Solus, “Latin for be yourself” as we’re told, doesn’t look like much more than a basic set of cans, [...]

The Time I Planted a Pipe Bomb Under Someone’s Truck [Video]

I almost crash into a truck, at first. I can turn on a dime and accelerate like a tiny nitrous-oxide-fueled bat out of hell—even though I’m holding a 10-pound pipe bomb, 30 percent of my body weight. I don’t know what I’m doing, really. But by the time I get to the truck to plant [...]

Microsoft files antitrust complaint against Google in Europe, showdown imminent

Microsoft, citing Google’s tyrannical 95% share of the European search market, has lodged a formal complaint with the European Commission. It’s not like Microsoft is breaking any ground here — the European Commission has been investigating Google’s alleged violation of European competition law since November 2010 — but there’s no doubt that the addition of [...]
