AutomateIt is a light-weight and free Tasker clone for Android

AutomateIt, as the name so handily implies, is an automation app for Android. The basic premise is that you have events, such as receiving an SMS or a certain time of day, which are triggers. These triggers then fire off one or more actions, which can start applications, set your phone's volume, and so on. AutomateIt is, basically, a free version of Tasker, but with a much-reduced set of...

Google to hold Chrome event - and demo! - December 7th

Google has announced a special Chrome event, scheduled for December 7th at 10:30 a.m. PST. Our sister site, Engadget, is guessing this will be the debut of a Google-branded laptop running Chrome OS. The event has a demo portion on the schedule, and a demo of a new OS is certainly worth a press conference, so don't rule a Chrome OS launch out. All we can tell you about the event at this point is...

YouTube begins trial of live streaming platform, crowd goes wild

From the oh dear Lord, it's about time department: YouTube, over the next two days, is conducting a trial of its new live streaming platform.

Admittedly I haven't heard of any of them -- and I'm more interested in watching the season finale of...

SXSW Interactive day one in pictures

Again, if you're on the ground in Austin you can write your takeaway from any interactive panel you attend via this...

Chirp: Twitter app development gets big enough for its own conference

It's obvious that the development community for third-party Twitter apps has become pretty huge, but I didn't realize just how huge until Twitter announced its own official developer conference, called Chirp. The creators of the 50,000+ (whoa!) Twitter applications out there will be able to get together in San Francisco next year to talk shop at the event, which doesn't have a set date yet. In...

EventSync - sync Facebook events to your Mac's iCal

It frustrates me that so many different services have a calendar function, and yet it's still a pain in the ass to make sure that my personal calendar is up to date. More often than not I find myself manually creating events using copy-and-paste, instead of the event being automatically created for me by whatever service I'm using. If you happen to be a Facebook Events user, a utility called...
