How to Apply for an Internship in 2011: Write a 140 Character Cover…

Can you describe yourself in a tweet? Under Armour is looking for summer digital media interns to be part of their 'Ultimate Intern Team' and in order to apply, you have to submit a 140-character cover letter and upload your resume to their Facebook page. Makes sense! If the interns' main focus is going to be digital… » 4/26/11 2:40am 4/26/11 2:40am

Infinite Book Looks More Like An Infinite Brochure, Still My Favorite…

We're certainly excited about how we'll view digital media in the future, but this particular concept design is my favorite. The Infinite Book is a funky reader with a hinge for endless folding of pages to vaguely mimic newspaper reading. » 10/01/09 10:20pm 10/01/09 10:20pm

SanDisk Snuffs TakeTV, Leaves No Trace of Fanfare

Poor TakeTV. This past Fall, it launched just ahead of the flood of media extenders that bring PC content to the TV. And while many felt it worked decently, it couldn't keep up with the big dogs in the end as Sandisk confirmed today they killed the TakeTV line...in mid-May. Additionally, they shut down the Fanfare… » 6/06/08 8:29pm 6/06/08 8:29pm

Sony E020 Walkman Lets You Match Your MP3 Player With Your Clothes

Sony's E020 Walkman, the flash-based MP3 player for kids who like to coordinate their gadgets with their outfits, will finally hit U.S. shores in mid-June. The E020 features a colored three-line LCD screen and a built-in USB jack with drag-and-drop MP3 transfer system (no SonicStage this time around, thankfully). Its… » 5/24/08 11:00am 5/24/08 11:00am

Hulu Launch Imminent But Will It Suck/Rock/Matter?

Hulu, the joint NBC/Fox online video service, may very well be launching any minute now, if sudden attention after months in quiet beta is any indication. We reviewed it last November (along with Joost and Miro), and we're still not sold on it. Our last experience was chock-full o' ads and didn't have nearly enough of… » 3/10/08 12:29pm 3/10/08 12:29pm

Vudu Test Confirms HD Download Worries (Plus: What Needs to Be Done)

Click to viewOver the weekend, I checked out three versions of the Transformers movie: standard-def and high-def instantaneous downloads to the Vudu box with 4-Mbps net connection, as well as the HD DVD of the movie, playing through the Xbox 360. As you can see in the image above, the so-called HD experience from Vudu… » 2/04/08 2:25pm 2/04/08 2:25pm

Disney's New CDVU+ Sounds Like Every Other Stupid Enhanced CD Format

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the reason CD sales suck is not the fact that there isn't enough crap loaded onto the disc. Enhanced CDs have been around for over a decade; hell, many of the first interactive CD-ROMs came from the record industry. Does anyone remember a single one? Apparently Disney doesn't, … » 7/20/07 11:29am 7/20/07 11:29am

Memorex iFlip Video Viewer for iPod

This September Memorex plans to release a video player that connects to the 5G iPod with Video, giving users access to a much roomier screen without having to sacrifice their precious iPod. The 8.4-inch screen dwarf's the iPod's 2.5-inch and supports a resolution of 480 x 234 pixels. If, like Tim Allen, you need more… » 7/26/06 2:35pm 7/26/06 2:35pm

Universal Embraces Simple CDs To Compete With iTunes: Now Less For…

The big music companies sure must hate the Fraunhofer Institute for creating the MP3 codec. As we all know, MP3s, burning CDs and, more recently, legal downloads have turned the industry on its head and caused executives to starve inside of their ivory towers. Over in the UK, Universal is trying to right this… » 7/05/06 11:21am 7/05/06 11:21am
