The Web's Biggest Scams: From 419 to the Hitman

Share The Web is awash with bad seeds who want your money, your data and your sweet, sweet identity. We don't want to scare you -- since these people are the exception, not the rule -- but they are out there. Crafty buggers who prey on trust and carelessness, scammers are not only persistent social engineers, but also skilled hackers who take over Facebook accounts, break into bank databases and ...

Last Night at The Guggenheim: YouTube Play Opens to Fanfare, Yet Flops

How do we rate YouTube Play? We've been struggling to answer that question since last night, when we attended the opening at the Guggenheim and got our first look at the 25 videos chosen for the exhibition. Culled from over 23,000 submissions worldwide and narrowed to a shortlist of 125, the final 25 were picked by a rock-star jury of artists, designers and filmmakers. To say it bluntly, the show...

Maker Faire Interview: DIY-King Ben Heck Talks Bill Paxton, Xbox Modding

Ben Heck is an all star in the field of DIY and modding. The man who has turned almost every game console under the sun into a portable system (be it handheld or laptop) now has his own show dedicated to making his fans' DIY dreams into reality. Mr. Heckendorn took time out of his hectic schedule of soldering and ripping things apart to chat with us at Maker Faire this weekend. Read on after the ...

Christina Aguilera? Reznor? 'iamamiwhoami' Baffles the Blogosphere

Share For over two months, music bloggers and journalists have been plagued by an intricate, creepy and riveting mystery: the identity of the mysterious and macabre iamamiwhoami. In December, a 55-second clip of a hyper-saturated, eerie (Scandinavian?) forest appeared on YouTube, making its way through critics' circles because of its catchy, pretty sounding music. No information was given, jus...

Top 5 Comedians Who Tweet (and 5 Who Should)

It's a happy coincidence that Twitter's 140-character limit happens to be the perfect format for dishing one-liners, wry observations, and, of course, those always satisfying X-rated tirades. Thus, it's an ideal way for comedians to try out new material and broaden their fan bases, and a never-ending source of free content for comedy fans -- a win-win for everyone. To share the wealth with our ...

The Oscar Enthusiast's Guide to the 2010 Nominees on Twitter

Groundhog's Day is over (with, apparently, more winter on its way), and let's face it, there's not a whole lot to be excited about in February. Except for the bloated, yearly spectacle called the Academy Awards. While Hollywood pats itself on the back, offices around the country throw in cash and take their best shots at guessing who will carry home a golden statue. We won't attempt to make ...

The 'Lost' Enthusiast's Guide to Twitter... and Season Six

[Ed. Note: Minor spoiler alerts ahead. If one is saving season five, skip this post] 'Lost' is one of those television shows that often spawn more questions than they provide answers. What other secrets will the Island reveal? Why does Jack's dad keep showing up? How many times will Sawyer appear shirtless? With the final season premiering on February 2nd, we hope all our questions will be answ...

Music Is the Future: 22 of the Greatest High-Tech Vids, From Air to TLC

Musicians imagine themselves vanguards, leaders of the path forward. Their music can light the way into the future, bringing revelations that will allow humankind to be elevated to the next level of evolution. Either that, or they just like wearing spacesuits and silver eyeliner. Whichever it may be (and it is often a bit of both), the world of tomorrow is frequently explored in music videos...

Ron Jeremy 'Stars' in 'The Great Porn Debate'

We weren't surprised to see Ron Jeremy in Vegas -- after all, the Adult Entertainment Expo was just down the road -- but we were taken aback to find him and his massive... personality on the CES floor. Matched against emo-haired "porn pastor" Craig Gross, Jeremy entered into The Great Porn Debate to discuss the role of skin flicks in society and the necessity of Internet filters for preventing ki...

David Gray Talks iPhones, Downloading, and the Music Industry's Failures

English singer-songwriter David Gray sat down with us to talk tech. Though he's made the giant leap into modernity by using an iPhone, he's only recently started downloading music. Sometimes the uninitiated often have the clearest perspectives, and all the downloading led to an epiphany: "you can get any piece of music, any time, anywhere." He goes on to rail a bit on the music industry's failed ...

Five Indie Musicians to Follow on Twitter, and Five We Wish Tweeted

Like the albums they're producing, there's a burgeoning group of independent musicians whose tweets put the musings of major-label artists to shame. While they might not have as many followers as, say, Bono or Justin Timberlake, you still won't find better material on the microblogging site than the musings of indie musicians. While this crop of alt-music power players do a fine job, there are...

Forget 'Video Phone': Top Songs About Technology

Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, two of the most forward-thinking ladies in pop music today, decided to get together and record a jam (and video) about a favorite gadget of theirs. When "Video Phone" was set to debut, we were thrilled. All of the components were there: B, Gaga, dancing, and devices. The endeavor was sure to succeed. Like the rest of the world, when "Video Phone" appeared, we we...

Comedian Frank Caliendo Does 'Street Fighter' Impressions

You may know him primarily for his work as John Madden, Andy Rooney, or one of a hundred other well-known celebrities, but master impressionist and comedian Frank Caliendo recently shed those facades for a rare moment of (somewhat) serious gadget and video games talk. The man of infinite voices told us (in more than one voice, including those of 'Street Fighter' characters) that he juggles his ...

The Fray's Dave Welsh Is a Mac Man All the Way

If you've glanced at the Billboard charts, Rolling Stone magazine, or your little sister's iPod over the past few years, you're bound to have seen the name: The Fray. Fronted by the piano-caressing crooner Isaac Slade, this Denver, Colorado four-piece has brought the mellow sounds of Coldplay and U2 back across the pond to great popular acclaim; since its debut in February, the band's most re...

Stewart Copeland Double-Fists the BlackBerry and the iPhone

Forever known for his role as the steady hand driving the Police's white-boy reggae (and the lanky American whose surfer-dude demeanor buoyed Sting's British flamboyance), Stewart Copeland has earned his place in the pantheon of pop music. Since those halcyon days, he hasn't exactly retired to the couch, having shared the stage with artists ranging from neo-proggers Oysterhead to alt. rock stalwa...
