  • Free Xbox Live Gold service for Silver members.

    If you own an Xbox 360, chances are you more than likely have an Xbox Live gold account giving you free reign on Xbox Live. Without Live, the 360 is still good machine though significantly less desirable in my opinion. Whether the sinking economy stole your Xbox Live money or you simply haven't ponied up the $50/year entrance fee because you're "just not sure" it's worth it, we can all agree that when someone offers you anything for free, you should generally take it. For European Xbox own...
  • Chad Ochocinco to all who support “traditional” news based business models: “To hell with the middleman”

    The social networking bans making there way across various professional level sports is not only stupid, but extremely ignorant and short sighted on the leagues' parts. First, by protecting old archaic business models and not embracing a new, modern technology, they are pushing themselves and their message further into irrelevance. Thankfully for us techies, Bengals player, Chad Ochocinco, isn't taking this affront to modern news reporting or fan interacting lightly. Mr. Ochocinco is starting...

    The procrastinating social butterflies out there will no doubt be kicking themselves if they didn't sign up to be part of the first group of previewers fortunate enough to get their hands on the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update. Said update is reported to be going live Friday for those lucky early adopters. Of course, if delays rear their ugly heads, don't say I didn't warn you. The significance of this update is the social aspect that gets added in. Namely Twitter, Facebook, and H...

  • Twitter down for you? You’re not alone.

    Yes, the real time king is down yet again. Well, for some that is. According to Twitter's Status Blog, some users located throughout the world are experiencing connection problems. It's good to know I'm not going senile. Because of issues with the site, my full attention has been on fixing those problems, not scouring the internet for news goodies -- hence the reason I didn't know if Twitter was down or not. After finally taking a few minutes to check the web, it's worth noting that the Twi...
  • Verizon assures us the Pre is coming. Via Twitter

    Some may frown upon more "professional" announcements via Twitter which is largely an informal, consumer service. Still, public professional criticism hasn't stopped droves of companies from embracing the service as an extension of their PR departments. The latest Tweet of importance comes from Verizon and confirms what we already knew -- that the Palm Pre is coming to Verizon in early 2010. New? No. Good to hear? You bet. Ubergizmo > Unwired ...
  • Hollywood exec’s the latest to completely botch the embracing of technology…

    Social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter allow people from all walks of life, pay grades, and geographic locations connect with one another as if they're physically right next to each other. Such things that spur people to keep seeking that bond. The NFL and NBA obviously have no idea about a thing called technology and the internet, but of all places, I would think Hollywood would have some sort of grasp. Apparently I was wrong as major Hollywood executives are bringin...
  • Twitter sees gold in Japan…launches Japanese mobile site
    by Mike
    Posted October 15th, 2009 at 11:42 am
    Since the U.S. can officially be claimed "conquered", Twitter is setting it's sites on a larger, more global scale. Even though other U.S. based social networking giants such as Facebook and MySpace have failed to gain any real following in the east, Twitter is pushing onward in hopes it can do something different. Part of that "different" approach is new measures that aren't employed inside the U.S. For example, banner ads can be seen on the mobile Japanese version of Twitter. Such ads ar...
  • About that NFL live blogging ban…

    Posted October 4th, 2009 at 10:12 am
    Anyone following sports the last few months has seen a rather harsh crackdown on live blogging of professional events by media present (we'll come back to that). The belief that banning any tweeting or live blogging during games will keep profits high is far from the truth. Have you ever followed a game by a live blog type of coverage? It's good for "to the point" information and quickly read through. However, it's far from the visual experience watching it on TV or seeing it live would be. ...

  • RIM to launch official, push supporting Twitter client October 16th?

    Are you a Twit-a-holic? Does the 140 character universe wait for each and every moment you feel is worth sharing? BlackBerry users are some of the most impatient individuals (I should know...I've had 3 so far). When they want an answer or information, they want it now. RIM is still the king of messaging, especially push messaging. Currently on any given BlackBerry you can receive emails, SMS/MMS, IM's, as well as many other messages from different sources pushed to your device. However, ...
