Royal Wedding to Be Released, Classily, Through iTunes

Got to hand it to those British Royals. In their own way, they're pretty cutting edge. In 1960, for instance, they were the first to televise a royal wedding service. (Blame them for the countless horrific wedding-related reality shows.) The royals are again acting oh-so-cutting-edge (not to mention classy) by planning a digital release of Kate and William's entire ceremony, mere hours after it...

Kennedy Library Foundation will formally announce the launch later today, making it the first presidential library to make its entire collection available on the Internet.

Baseball Archiving: Tagging and Watching 160,000 Hours of MLB Footage

While technology isn't totally embraced on the baseball diamond, Major League Baseball is embracing it behind the scenes. According to The New York Times, about 50 employees now watch 2,430 regular season and up to 41 postseason baseball games as they occur, and digitally archive every play using hundreds of tags and descriptions to make searching this database as simple as a Google search. Lo...

Kodak Portra 400 Film Made Exclusively for Scanning -- Not Printing

Share We always thought that the rise of digital photography would, at one point or another, render film obsolete. According to Kodak, however, we (and virtually everyone else) were all wrong. As Wired reports, the iconic film company is enjoying something of a counterintuitive renaissance in this digital age, as sales of color film remain strong, and black-and-white film sales are actually se...

Digital Minimalists Thrive Without Possessions, Claim It's the Future Lifestyle

Traditionally, the art of de-cluttering a house meant large garage sales, or, at least, finding friends to saddle with all of your needless junk. Now, sites like eBay have made the whole process easier, connecting you with millions of strangers... to saddle with all of your needless junk. Yet, as BBC reports, a select few people have found their traditional, analog lives too cumbersome, and hav...

Scientists Bury 'Digital DNA' Deep Inside a Swiss Fort Knox

According to Reuters, scientists culled information from 16 archives, libraries and research institutions, and built a time capsule in order to preserve digital formats, which are changing at ...

Boy Scout Handbook Goes Digital, 'Grand Theft Auto: Pine Box' Next?

In addition to instructional videos, the online text will include a...

Sans Apple, Major Labels Plan New Digital Album Format

While it might sound like commercial suicide, a group of major record labels -- Sony, Warner, Universal, and EMI -- are planning to launch a new digital album format, without Apple's support. According to the Guardian, the project, codenamed 'CMX,' will launch in November and include songs, lyrics, videos, liner notes, and artwork. It's a push to revive the album in a time when digital singles do...

Jenga Goes Portable and Digital

Alright people. Look, we're big fans of all things digital and techy... but some things are just better left alone. We were a bit peeved when Monopoly replaced its multi-colored bills with a debit card, but taking Jenga digital is not only a travesty, but it doesn't even make any sense. First off, who wants to stare at a tiny LED screen (think those old-school Game & Watch handhelds from Nint...

Wilmington's DTV Switch Goes (Mostly) Smoothly

The nation is finally switching to digital television, or DTV, and Wilmington, NC was the first in the nation earlier this week. We're now finding out how well it went and reports are positive, with just 797 people calling in with questions or concerns. That's less than half of a percent of the total viewers in the city. Of those, only 23 actually had no idea about the DTV changeover and so were...

Rolling Stone Releases Free Digital Edition

Rolling Stone, like many other traditional print publications, is working on strategies to maintain its place in the media mainstream in our increasingly Internet-focused age. To this end, the magazine has issued its first ever Digital Edition, a complete copy of the print version in digital format, including advertisements. The "magazine" is shown as a Flash presentation, with arrows to turn t...

Name Your Own Price For New Radiohead

Radiohead has always been one to buck trends and eschew traditional music industry trappings. After its masterpiece (and greatest album ever!) 'Ok Computer,' the band decided to totally abandon guitars, anything resembling pop-song structure and music videos. It recently severed ties with music label EMI; then, last week, Radiohead decided it was also done with Apple and iTunes because the band...
