Boutiques.com, Google's fashion shopping site, may launch on Wednesday

A rumor has started making the rounds across the interwebs, and it has something to do with Google possibly launching a fashion shopping site. Apparently, it all started with a tweet from an "anonymous New York fashion PR", according to Frockwriter. That tweet was the cause for a lot of coverage in itself, until it was made public that many people in the fashion world had been invited to a Google...

Google 'social layers' coming this fall, Google Me still all hype

Remember how something called Google Me was supposed to be Google's Facebook-killing secret weapon? Well, the plan to introduce new social features that Google announced on Tuesday does not sound like Google Me. In fact, nobody at Google has ever confirmed that Google Me is an actual product in development. Let's back away from the hype machine for a minute and look at what Google has actually...

Valve VP: We're not working on Steam for Linux

Well, so much for hints, Linux users. While it initially looked as though Valve's gaming behemoth was headed your way when the Mac client arrived, that may not actually be the case. In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz, Valve's VP of Marketing Doug Lombardi has bad news for Linux gamers: "There's no Linux version that we're working on right now." Sorry to take the Steam out of your...

Apple to reveal iPhone OS 4.0 this Thursday

Yes, iPad mania has captured the attention of tech geeks around the world, but it's not the only Apple creation worth talking about this week. iPhone OS 4.0 arrives on Thursday -- in demo form, anyway -- at a just-announced Apple event. Members of the press were just invited to cover the announcement, but the invitation didn't include any details about what new features might be announced. ...

Windows 7 SP1 coming this summer?

Word on the street is that Microsoft is hard at work on Windows 7 Service Pack 1. And while that's just a rumor for now, I'd be kind of surprised if it wasn't true. After all, Microsoft has a long history of putting out service packs that bundle together all of the incremental updates for each of its operating systems. Usually a service pack also includes a few new features. Here are a a few of...

TechCrunch vs. Last.fm vs. the RIAA, Round 2

Remember the panic a while back about social music site Last.FM supposedly leaking listener data to the RIAA? TechCrunch sure does, because they started the rumor, and then faced accusations of shoddy reporting from basically the whole Internet when it turned out to be false. Well, now TechCrunch have uncovered some new information that shows they were right after all ... sort of. Last.fm's...

Dell rep indicates that Windows 7 could cost more than Vista, XP

Microsoft has yet to announce the pricing for Windows 7, which is on track to launch before the holiday season. But according to a Dell official, the new operating system could be more expensive than earlier versions of Windows including Vista and XP. In an interview with CNet, the Dell marketing executive said the average selling price of Windows 7 will be higher, which could affect adoption...

Facebook and Microsoft getting cosy?

There's been persistent rumours for as long as we can remember about Facebook being the object of Yahoo!'s desire, with founder Mark Zuckerberg reportedly turning down offers in the region of $2 BILLION. Yes, two billion dollars. However Microsoft, apparently keen to make inroads with their some-what floundering Windows Live initiatives, is rumoured to be wanting Facebook, and badly. So badly...

How to build a website with $12,000 and lots of bad PR

When it comes to web 2.0 startups, it may be that there really might be no such thing as bad press. Last month Guy Kawasaki launched Truemors, a Reddit-like site that lets users submit rumors, which any user can vote on. The most popular rumors are pushed to the top. When we first told you about Truemors, we pointed out that it was severely lacking in quality control, and most of the rumors on the...
