Google and Microsoft Take It Outside

By just about any measure, the Android mobile platform is making a killing in the U.S. As of last March, comScore said over a third of U.S. smartphone subscribers use Android phones. Every major U.S. carrier supports Android phones, every major handset maker in the world not named "RIM," "Apple" or ...

Anonymous, PayPal and WikiLeaks: The Grudge That Keeps On Grudging

Remember WikiLeaks? It's still around, it's still somewhat leaky, and it's still very much loved by the amorphous hacker entity known as "Anonymous." Anons and WikiLeaks both generally enjoy breaking down barriers of secrecy and scattering what they find into the public view, though they may tend to...

Apple Comes In Like a Lion

Apple finally pushed out a much-anticipated raft of new products this week. Its new desktop OS, OS X Lion, had been promised for a July release last month at the Worldwide Developers Conference, and some Mac followers had been getting downright antsy for a new MacBook Air, which also touched down. M...

The Swedish Invasion

For U.S. music fans, Spotify's cruel, years-long tease is drawing to a close. The European music platform is finally coming to the United States. For the unhip, Spotify is a platform for streaming music. It was launched in 2008 and now claims 10 million users, 1.6 million of whom are paying members....

The Revolution Will Be Video-Chatted

More than a week after Google+'s launch, millions of social networkers are still crying out in vain for their invitations. Naturally, though, the tech industry's cultural elite are already inside the door, checking things out and getting an advance look-see. OK, not all of Google+'s first settlers a...

Google’s Social Blowout

Google made a very socially awkward move with its rollout of Google Buzz last year. It was Google's attempt to build a social network in part by stringing together various existing pieces of its infrastructure -- your contacts from over here, your Gmail account over there, Google Reader if you use i...

The Hackers Parade Marches On

Many more verses have been added to the ballad of LulzSec lately. The hacker group has partnered with Anonymous for an agenda of world cyberchaos, vowed revenge on other hackers who disrupted an online gaming network -- this is after Lulz itself shot down a couple of other gaming networks -- and fli...

And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Lulz

The hacker group LulzSec has been carrying out a security-busting blitzkrieg across the Web over the last few weeks, and its targets are getting bigger and bigger. You can tell where it's been by the path of sites left shivering in a fetal position -- sites belonging to organizations like PBS, Sony,...

The Softer Side of Apple

The WWDC keynote has come and gone, but strangely enough, Apple gave us no new toys to go out and buy. There were no new iObjects gracing the stage this time around at the opening of its developer conference -- guess iPhone 5 will just have to wait until fall. But WWDC is technically a software conf...

With No TWIT or FABOO in Sight, Wall Street Gorges on LNKD

Rivers of drool run down Wall Street every time a plausible rumor about a Twitter or Facebook IPO comes around. It still hasn't happened -- both are still private companies -- but it's been a topic of conversation for years, and it speaks to investors' hunger to pump money into the world's top socia...

Facebook’s Sly-Dog Aspirations

One of these days we may see a real public clash between Facebook and Google - a huge bidding war, or maybe the launch of a real Google social network that will have the other one fighting for its life. For now, though, we get a silly little PR disaster that's left Facebook looking like it's lost it...

The Sony Horror Hacker Show

Sony's great big data leak could go down in history as the company's messiest mess of all time -- even worse than the CD rootkit disaster. Last week, we learned that hackers had broken into Sony's PlayStation Network and made off with a bunch of user data. Names, passwords and birth dates were defin...

It’s All Fun and Games Until Someone Gets Hacked

After suffering a massive network failure for more than a week, Sony's PlayStation division had the distinct pleasure of revealing to users it had been hacked -- deep and hard -- by cybercriminals who may have been able to pilfer some very valuable information. Before this happened, PlayStation's PR...

Some iPhone to Watch Over Me

Let's talk about privacy. Is it a violation of your privacy if your phone knows where you are at all hours of the day and keeps detailed records without your telling it to? What if the phone never tells anyone else -- doesn't beam your location to Steve Jobs or Larry Page or the Pope or anyone at al...

WEEKLY RECAP

Clash of the Carrier Titans

Remember that rumor from a couple weeks ago that Sprint and T-Mobile were getting together? That's not happening. T-Mobile USA actually wants to get in with AT&T, which has agreed to buy the company from Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion. Maybe those talks with Sprint really were going on simulta...

iPad 2 Is Everywhere and Nowhere

The new iPad 2 has arrived, sort of. It made a brief appearance last Friday in Apple stores and a few other retailers. But by Saturday the only place you could find one was either chained to an Apple store table as a demo model or clutched in the hands of a neighbor who decided that getting up in th...

Facebook Goes to Hollywood

Video rental stores made it so you don't have to go all the way to a theater to watch a movie, then online video channels like Netflix and iTunes made is so you don't even have to leave the house. The next step will be that you won't even have to leave the warm, squishy embrace of Facebook in order ...

Tablet Wars Begin in Earnest

The iPad 2 has made its entrance, and by next week it'll go up for grabs. There's been a lot of anticipation for what Apple would do with its next tablet now that rivals have showed up with their own tablets that beat the original iPad's specs -- granted, they were mostly demo units. Steve Jobs hims...

Apple’s March Madness: In Like a Lion

If you nauseate easily at the prospect of non-stop Apple announcements, right now might be a good time to take a long hike in the woods, weather permitting. Apple's given developers a brand-new preview of OS X Lion; next week we'll see an announcement that's almost certainly going to be all about iP...

Will Apple Be Forced to Cancel Its Subscriptions?

Did Apple just save the publishing industry? Or did it just get so hungry for burgers that it butchered its own cash cow? The rumblings started earlier this month, when Sony got itself in a bunch over Apple's rejection of its e-reader app on the grounds that it didn't sell books quite the way Apple ...
