So here I am, reliving America's past and my not-so-recent past, thanks to old and new media. And I think: Every local TV station has to have something valuable in their vaults, much like the Dallas-Fort Worth outlets do with their Kennedy footage. Also, any radio station with a legacy worth talking about has to have old audio worth saving from the ravages of time; not just how their news staffs covered major events, but also archives of much-loved DJs and maybe some in-studio performances by famous bands and singers...
The Recording Industry Association of America has apparently found out the hard way what other organizations, like the mafia, have known for years: The American legal system is for pansies ...
After nearly a century and a half, the presses have stopped for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer print edition. Seattle's oldest newspaper will continue as an online-only publication, but with a much-reduced news staff Following on the heels of the shutdown of the Rocky Mountain...
After 146 years of publication, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer print edition is no more. Seattle's oldest newspaper, which is owned by media giant Hearst, will continue as an online-only publication starting Wednesday, but with a much-reduced news staff "The P-I has a rich 146...
MTV pretty much gave up on music years ago in order to concentrate on how many different variations of "The Real World" and "Road Rules" it could squeeze out. But YouTube has largely picked up MTV's slack -- type in just about any video you want to see, and Google's sharing site will play it for you ...
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told a gathering of analysts that the company won't be making any further layoffs, and once word got out, Wall Street proceeded to pummel the company mercilessly, sending its stock to an 11-year low ...
Maybe the people over at Hulu really are evil aliens trying to turn our brains to mush. Or maybe they're just beholden to the studios that sign their paychecks. Either way, Hulu's decision to take its content stream away from startup Boxee has users crying foul ...
OK, you heard Oprah rave about the Kindle, and you were so impressed that you ordered one. Then you ended up waiting because the darn thing was out of stock -- for months! ...
Now you and your friends can play "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?" with Google's new mobile technology called "Latitude," but you, or they -- all of you, as a matter of fact -- can be Carmen ...
The Obama techies had their fingers on the switch on Tuesday, and at precisely 12:01 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, they threw it. The Bush administration's WhiteHouse.gov underwent a Cinderella-like transformation and joined the Web 2.0 era ...
There's been a fair amount of snickering over the possibility that Barack Obama will have to give up his BlackBerry after his swearing-in next week, with the implication that it's just a personal habit he'll have a hard time breaking, like quitting smoking. Apparently, the security risks associated with a president using a mobile device are too enormous for the U.S. government to contain. There's also the matter of political risks...
Looks like Santa visits cybercrooks too. Their present this year was a big, fat security hole in many widely used versions of Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The critical vulnerability allowed remote code execution if an Explorer user visited a specially crafted, malicious Web page. That translated into the potential for big-time credit card fraud and identity theft...
If you want a G1 Android phone but you can't bear the thought of using a carrier with pink logo, help is on the way. You can now get a version of the HTC handset that's both SIM-unlocked and hardware-unlocked ...
TV shows like "The Hills" focus on the petty squabbles that go on in the world of spoiled, vapid socialites. I can't think of a program that gets into the catfights that go on in the IT world, and I don't know whether there'd really be a huge audience for something like that, but they do happen, and court documents in an ongoing lawsuit have revealed some juicy tidbits...
Now you can get your fix of "Bulletproof Monk" and "American Gladiators" -- all without leaving the comfort of YouTube. Yes, the king of user-generated, short-form video is now embracing the other kind: studio-generated, feature-length films ...
Yahoo was quite the chooser last spring when Microsoft offered to buy it -- the Yahoo board held out for a higher price. Now it's looking more and more like the beggar. Its relationship with Google is pretty much finished before it even had a chance to begin, and it appears Yahoo is reaching the end of its rope. ...
About 30 years ago, we Earthlings sent a probe to check out Mercury, the tiny planet closest to the sun, and concluded that it was just a big hot rock. But after poking around on the moon and Mars for a few decades, we decided to take another look at Mercury ...

eBay came through with a profitable third quarter, but don't expect such good news in the coming months. Its earnings were almost 1 and a half billion dollars better than Q3 of last year, but the total sum of all transactions on the auction site actually went down one percent ...
