Super Bowl XLV on Twitter: Who to Follow

Super Bowl XLV presents a particularly intriguing juxtaposition of established tradition and revolutionary technology. The Steelers and Packers represent perhaps the two most storied franchises in NFL history, with each carrying a lunch-pail reputation as a blue-collar, working-class organization. Now, 21st-century tech is allowing unprecedented Super Bowl access to those timeless teams' players,...

Michael Phelps Bringing Kinect Swimming to Xbox

Water levels in video games have been terrible since Mario's first attempt at swimming in level 2-2, and things haven't improved much over the years as Ecco, Link and countless others have waded into the sea. Games that approximate the sport of swimming itself, often hastily tacked onto the year's Summer Olympics package, have been universally bad, marked by mindless controls, poor animation, and...

NFL and Players Union Take Labor Dispute Bickering to Twitter

Surfer Tackles Giant Maui Waves at Night, With LED Vest and Surfboard

Call us scaredy cats, but there's no way we'd follow in Mark Visser's footsteps. As part of a film, the adventure athlete rode a 30-foot wave off the coast of Maui in the dead of night, illuminated by the moon... oh, and his LED-bedecked life vest and surfboard. That's right: that blinking thing in the surf is a person, not a boat. Check out the video after the break....

EA Sports Replaces Tiger Woods With Yellow Flag on His Own Game

PGA to Allow Fans to Bring Cell Phones to Golf Tournament

Unlike real athletes, golfers insist on playing their "sport" in tightly controlled environments. With the exception of perhaps Ryder Cup attendees, spectators at any professional golf tournament are expected to remain quiet before a player swings, politely applaud afterward, and duly march onward, in civilized propriety. Until recently, fans weren't even allowed to bring cell phones to tournament...

MLB's Winter Meetings Stocked With Baseball Gadgets

Dallas Cowboys Allow Site to Expire, Giants Fans Drop the Ball

Fans of the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants fumbled away a golden opportunity last week. Rivals the Dallas Cowboys left the door open for cybersquatters when the team forgot to renew its official site.

Rioting Giants Fans Hop on Foursquare, Twitter After World Series Win

Last night, the San Francisco Giants defeated the Texas Rangers to win the World Series. Giants fans, naturally, did what sports fans do best after their team wins a championship: riot in the streets. Of course, Giants fans aren't just any sports fans; they're savvy social media users, too.

ESPN 3D Isn't Profitable, But Will Still Broadcast in 2011

Despite broadcasting a variety of sports in its first six months, ESPN 3D has been a flop. Jonathan Pannaman, senior director of technology at the network, said the company doesn't know what direction to take the channel or how to make money with it, according to TVB Europe. "We're still not sure what makes sense for 3-D TV, and we don't yet see a proven ROI [return on investment]," Pannaman said...

Cablevision and Fox Resolve Dispute (For Now), Still Dislike Each Other

The lengthy standoff between News Corp. and Cablevision has finally come to a close -- and just in time for the World Series.

The dispute had essentially boiled down to money; News Corp. wanted Cablevision to pay higher r...

Designed by NASA and Team 254 Robotics of Bellarmine College Preparatory, the 'bot can blast a total of 400 shirts with t...

FOX-Cablevision Standoff Blocks Fans From Watching World Series

The drama between FOX, its parent company News Corp and Cablevision continues to drag on. Cablevision's iO Digital Cable customers have been deprived of FOX programing for about two weeks, but it seems that people have, so far, survived without Glenn Beck and 'The Simpsons.' But, now, the standoff over broadcasting fees is encroaching on the World Series, and consumers simply won't stand for that....
