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

Store Your Physical Media On The Cloud (Shelf)

Don't let your digital media have all the fun playing on clouds, let's store our physical books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, and magazines on a cloud too. I did hear this cloudshelf has nearly a 100% uptime. [DesignTorget via NOTCOT] » 8/29/10 4:00pm 8/29/10 4:00pm

Why I Steal Movies… Even Ones I'm In

Like a billion other people, I download things illegally. I'm also an actor, writer and director whose income depends on revenue from DVDs, movies and books. This leads to many conflicts in my head, in my heart, and in bars. » 5/14/10 6:30pm 5/14/10 6:30pm

Viacom Pulling "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report" From Hulu

Tragedy! The New York Times is reporting that Viacom is going to pull "The Daily Show," "The Colbert Report," and other Comedy Central properties off of Hulu next week. The reason, as always: money. The bigger question: who's next? » 3/02/10 7:11pm 3/02/10 7:11pm

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

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

Joost To Stream Live TV

Joost will test live streaming TV in the US in early 2008, alongside its pre-packaged on-demand video. The key here is sporting events, which are always better the first time around. But sports mean express written consent, and rather than try to compete with the big boys, Joost may be planning to start at the… » 10/11/07 7:00pm 10/11/07 7:00pm

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… » 7/20/07 11:29am 7/20/07 11:29am

Zune Ads Hit NYC, Nobody Notices (But Me)

Do we learn anything new from the ads? No, sir, but we do get yet another confirmation on the release date:… » 10/02/06 9:48am 10/02/06 9:48am

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

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
