Got World Cup fever? Get a vuvuzela app for your mobile device!

If you've been watching the World Cup, you've probably noticed the vuvuzela by now. It's a type of horn that tons of fans in the World Cup stands are blowing, and it produces that incessant buzzing noise you hear during the matches. Whether you think it's annoying or a great way to show some spirit for your favorite football team [really? -Ed], the vuvuzela is probably not going anywhere, so you...

Firefox Friday Five: on security, the World Cup and WebM

Another week has slid past, and again both 3.6.4 and 3.5.10 have failed to emerge! I can only assume that Mozilla is feverishly working away on a critical bug or feature -- and really, unless they get 3.6.4 out of the door this week, I don't think we'll see Firefox 4.0 Beta 1 this month. Here's hoping! In unrelated news, Thunderbird 3.1RC2 came out this week. You know, I've never met anyone...

Free localized sports--in realtime

One of the toughest things about being a local online sports fan is getting up-to-the-minute scores and play-by-play action on your favorite sports teams. Sure, you could watch the game on local TV coverage. But if you're a frequent traveler or just somebody who spends a lot of nights out, it's not easy to catch third-and-long every time it happens, especially when the team you follow is a high...

Get the game while you're on the go

It's been a cruel, cruel summer without our beloved NFL football, and pre-season games don't really cut it. Fortunately, kickoff is tomorrow (not a moment too soon for the rabid fans around here) and we'll able to get our fill of long punt returns, bone-crunching tackles, and (hopefully) more hilarious MasterCard commercials. If despite your best intentions to stay on the couch and catch all the...

Grab NFL data as it happens via RSS

What do the NFL and RSS have in common besides three letters? Nothing, except for the fact they have just tackled each other into providing as-it-happens news, headlines, and summaries of NFL action. The team behind the NFL website has just made grabbing NFL data both faster and easier. Forget about checking out and scanning NFL.com all day waiting for something to happen, just read it via RSS...

Super Bowl commercials, re-run on YouTube

If you missed any of the Super Bowl commercials last night, or got caught with your head in the fridge when a good one was on, you still have the chance to watch them again. YouTube has a listing of 35 commercials that ran last night during the Super Bowl's U.S. broadcast that you can watch over and over til your heart's content. Not only that, users can also rate the commercials through the...

FootieFox: Firefox extension to feed your World Cup obsession

Yesterday I mentioned Microsoft's Soccer Scoreboard. If you prefer to take your sports scores in the form of a Firefox extension, there's FootieFox, an extension that will give you up-to-the-minute scores for today's matches. You can configure it for your preferred teams and leagues, and it will sit quietly in your Firefox statusbar displaying the most recent score, or all matches at the click...

Microsoft's World Cup scoreboard

I'll admit, I'm pretty sports agnostic, but Microsoft apparently isn't: It's released Soccer Scoreboard for World Cup 2006, a little Windows app that will show you the score of the current match, a schedule of upcoming matches, and the current standings. You can also add a custom RSS feed to be shown in a ticker at the bottom, and adjust the transparency level. Before you install the Soccer...
