Play with Mozilla's HTML5 and WebGL Web O' Wonder

Step right up! Mozilla's Web O' Wonder is a fantastic and enthralling and slightly terrifying playground for surfers of all ages and experience levels. Feast your eyes on funky uses of WebGL and CSS3 transitions as slick as a bald man's pate. Marvel at the flexibility of HTML5 video -- but most of all, revel in the fact that everything in the Web O' Wonder is made of Open Web technologies. T...

Windows 8 tablet demo scheduled for June?

Citing a "source at Microsoft," Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that Microsoft plans on showing off Windows 8 in just a few short months. Insider's Matt Rosoff notes that Microsoft's fiscal year wraps up in June, so it just might make sense to demo the upcoming OS on a tablet to whet investor appetites for the coming year. As WinRumors points out, that's also right around the time of the All...

BlackBerry PlayBook Scrapbook app creates and shares fun photo collages (video)

At Mobile World Congress, RIM continues to showcase the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. Today, it's shared video footage of a very slick photo editing tool called Scrapbook. The app was developed by The Astonishing Tribe, a Swedish development house RIM acquired back in December 2010. As you can see in the video after the break, Scrapbook makes it easy to throw together (almost literally)...

Linpus Lite tablet-optimized Linux OS gets hands-on treatment (video)

While tablet hardware is capable of running a full desktop OS, the experience often leaves something to be desired. Most desktop OSes are still designed to be used with a keyboard and mouse, and you're not likely to attach either to a tablet while you're riding a bus to work. Linpus offered a full Linux distro for quite some time, and now they're offering a tablet-optimized interface for MeeGo...

Adobe Flash-to-HTML5 conversion tool now in demo stage

Adobe engineer Rik Cabanier put on an extremely interesting tech demo earlier this week, showing off a Flash-to-HTML5 conversion tool called "Wallaby," that would allow Flash developers to reuse many elements of their Flash projects -- including graphics, masks, and animations -- in an HTML file. The tool will also tell you which elements can't be converted, like animated masks, filters and action...

USGA concept app for Windows Phone 7 is a golfer's techgasm

What kind of sexy demo apps does your new mobile platform need if you want it to make some noise? Apps which resonate with people who you really, really want using your phones. Executive types, perhaps -- the kind of people with some business clout. People who... enjoy a good round of golf during their downtime? Sure, why not. Long Zheng has shared loads of images of a conceptual Windows Phone...

Divvy makes window management a snap on your Mac

The window management tools in Windows and OS X were created at a time when average screen sizes were a fraction of what they are now, and yet it seems there has been very few changes to how they work. Probably the biggest evolution is Windows 7's ability to snap windows to the sides or top and bottom of your screen and resize them accordingly. While Macs don't have a feature like that built-in, t...

Smokescreen may let iPhone and iPad users watch Flash video using JavaScript

A Flash player written using native JavaScript and HTML might be the key to playing Flash video on the iPhone and iPad without Steve Jobs and Adobe ever settling their differences. Smokescreen can already play basic Flash animations, but is still too slow to provide a smooth video experience, according to our sister site, Engadget. It's a start, though, and it's definitely an exciting proof of co...

Apple allows free-to-paid demo apps on iPhone

One of the biggest complaints about Apple's iPhone App Store has been the lack of any way to try an app before you buy it. Apple has addressed that issue by allowing free-to-paid app upgrades. This means apps that used to have two separate versions, free and paid, will now be able to merge into a single download, with the ability to buy an upgrade from within the app. Apple has been pretty str...

UI Nerdgasm Alert: 10/GUI is sweeping us off our fingers

10/GUI from C. Miller on Vimeo. Kitschy soundtrack, good voiceover and an intensely thorough demo add up to one cool re-imagining of our conventional human/computer interaction. In other words: this looks as close to the UI in Minority Report as I've ever seen. The key seems to be rewarding the user for having 10 fingers, and using all 10 to do a high number of operations in clever ways. This i...

Google Docs API now provides OCR service

If you're not a developer, you're probably not aware that Google Docs has an API available for various document-related services. Recently Google added a new feature that allows developers to create applications that will pass an image-based (.png, .jpg, or .gif) document to the API, and using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology, generate and pass back an editable text-based document. C...

Ubuntu Netbook Remix gets real official

At any given time on the planet, there's a technology trade show in progress. Some are more significant than others, and there's no formula to figure if any given one will be worth the airfare. We're guessing that a few ultraportable laptop manufacturers, as well as a few of us (cough) normal folk, are a little intrigued with the news emerging from the Computex exhibit halls today. Canonical let s...

Delver announces personalized social search engine

The problem with search engines (if you're one of those people who believe there's a problem with search engines) is that they don't know who you are. Google and other search companies are tackling this issue by compiling your search history in a way that could eventually help the search engine decide which results will be most relevant. But for the most part, right now when you, your mother, an...

SkyFire: Access full web content on a mobile web browser

While mobile web browsers have come a long way in recent years, so has the web. Today's mobile browsers like Opera Mini and Safari for the iPhone let you zoom in and out of web pages and let you scale text and images to fit on a small screen. You can even watch some web video. But mobile browsers still have a tough time handling pages that make heavy use of Ajax, Flash 9, JavaScript, and other mo...

Ever wish your PC desktop was just a little bit bigger? Need more space for program shortcuts, documents, and temporary files? There are a number of ways to virtually increase the size of your desktop by creating multiple virtual desktops. Microsoft has a free power toy that lets you toggle between up to 4 desktops. Dexpot is a freeware program that lets you have up to 20. And virtual deskto...
