NAPSTER: RELOADED

In the beginning, there was Old Napster. It was 1999, broadband was new, and music-swapping had just EXPLODED onto the scene via a peer-to-peer application invented by a college student who coined it’s name based on his kinky hair (don’t get me started). Those were the good ole days.

FACEBOOK VS. TONIDO!

It just hit me today as I was updating my Facebook page. My boss (actually, my boss’s boss) requested Facebook friendship. Hmmm, this could be tricky. Ordinarily I am okay some work-life/personal-life convergence in the online world.

EVOLUTIONARY TELEVISION:
THE STUDIOS STRIKE BACK!

So remember how I was telling you all that stuff about the TV studios embracing Hulu (Fox and NBC sponsored the project), and how they had learned from the music industry’s crippling Napster debacle?

EVOLUTIONARY TELEVISION:
HOW I CUT THE CORD

It’s been a long time. I shouldn’t have left you; without a strong rhyme to step to.

CAN COMPUTERS READ OUR MINDS?

A couple of friends and I were crowded around a table, drinking cold light beer, talking about the electoral math, and watching Wolf Blitzer on a 300ft projection screen, along with […]

THE G-PHONE COMETH!

Well, folks, the other shoe has finally dropped. Google has entered the mobile phone space. The iPhone has its first serious competitor. Allow me to introduce you to the HTC G1.
What’s that you say? You haven’t seen or heard anything about it? Not surprising, as Google is easing into this […]

THE TWO FACES OF APPLE

I would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to all of my new readers from Urban Thought Collective! I am sincerely proud and humbled to be a part of this community. Now, on to the tech!
Last time, I gave you an overview of the major players in the coming mobile-phone slugfest that’s about […]

BLOG DEBUT! - BEWARE OF THE PHONE WARS

Sounds ominous, right? Well, it should. Most tech shootouts do more harm than good to the consumer. Anybody remember Blu-ray vs. HD-DVD?
