StarCraft II may be looking at a faraway 2010 release, but that's not stopping accessory makers from cashing in on the hype. Just weeks after we saw StarCraft II gaming surfaces, um, surface, Razer has now teamed up with Blizzard Entertainment in order to push out its own line of game-themed peripherals. Razer has conjured up a tournament-grade mouse, keyboard and headset specifically designed to maximize the StarCraft II gameplay experience, with Razer's own president proclaiming that he is "extremely excited to be working with Blizzard Entertainment on the StarCraft II gaming peripherals and...

Following Tuesday's press conference where Steve Jobs announced the new MacBooks, Jobs assembled the press corps and fielded a few questions. When the topic came around to why Apple still doesn't offer Blu-ray drives as an option for Mac, this was what he had to say:"BluRay is a bag of hurt... The licensing of the technology is so complex that we’re just waiting until things settle down and waiting until BluRay really takes off in the marketplace before we burden our customers with the cost of the licensing and the drives."    Credit: AMEX DigitalMany might argue that customers are already...

Ever had to take your laptop out of its bag and had it gone over with a fine-tooth comb at an airport? We have, and they turned it on, and ran over it with a swab to check for explosive residue. Yet another time-eating ritual. On Friday the TSA announced that Saturday, new laptop bag rules would go into effect, and laptops would be allowed to stay in some laptop bags deemed "checkpoint-friendly." The TSA asked asked laptop bag manufacturers to design bags that would not obstruct the image of a laptop when put through an X-ray machine, and chose the three styles above, butterfly, trifold, and sleeve,...

There's an old joke about the French surrendering to anyone and anything, but one place France never surrenders is in the courtroom where money is involved. If you're a foreign firm doing business in France and your business model rubs an established French business the wrong way, the French court system isn't shy about whacking you with the big stick. EBay is the latest company to take a beating in Paris. They've been ordered to pay LVMH, the maker of luxury brand goods like Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior,  $61 million dollars for allowing counterfeit copies to be sold on EBay's auction...

Toshiba backed the HD DVD format against Sony's rival Blu-ray high-definition disc method, and Toshiba lost. One wonders whether Sony might ask themselves from time to time if it might have been better to have lost. More or less, no one wants a Blu-ray player. Sales of Blu-ray players, excluding PlayStation 3 game consoles, dropped 40 percent from January to February in the U.S., according to NPD. Sales grew only 2 percent from February to March. The firm didn't release numbers of players sold."When we surveyed consumers late last year, an overwhelming number of them said they weren't investing... Read more...
Apple has announced that the iPhone will go on sale on June 29th. The phone has a large touchscreen, will play video, play music, and display and store photos. Apple is hoping for --and can expect-- a sort of frenzy usually reserved for hard -to-find toys at Christmastime for the units, which come with either 4 or 8 gigabytes of  flash memory and will cost $500 or $600 respectively. Worldwide cellphone sales are running at about 1 billion units a year, and Jobs noted that if Apple took a 1 percent market share in 2008, that would mean the company would sell 10 million iPhones....

The internet is a fever swamp of hackers. Rasmus Lerdorf of Yahoo is in the news with his simple solution to avoiding the most common way bad people steal your good money: Cross-site scripting vulnerablities. His simple fix: use two browsers. The idea is to separate all the surfing where personal information may be exposed from all other Web activities. "Theoretically, the places you trust are less likely to less likely to have cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, like your large, name-brand bank," said Huger. "So the browser you use to go to those sites is safer." And if... Read more...
