TechCrunch and AOL Slamdanced Before They Made Sweet

David Zax (Fast Company)
Submitted at 9/29/2010 10:49:20 AM

You probably heard that AOL

bought TechCrunch. In a post
from yesterday, TechCrunch head
Michael Arrington tells the story
of how AOL's CEO, Tim
Armstrong, made an overture to
Arrington in May, and how talks
began in earnest in July. The
purchase immediately raised
questions about how TechCrunch
would cover AOL and Armstrong,
and Arrington sought to address--
or maybe spin--those questions.
TechCrunch wouldn't have to
create internal checks to make
sure it was hitting hard on AOL;
quite the opposite: "In the end,
we’ll probably have to create
internal checks to ensure that we
aren’t more critical of AOL than
we otherwise would be just to
prove our editorial independence."

Raumfeld Multi-Room Audio System Review

Chris Davies (SlashGear)
Submitted at 9/29/2010 9:42:09 AM

Just as CDs have quickly been

overtaken by digital downloads,
so the number of people wanting
to get their music off the
computer and through speakers in
their living room, kitchen and
bedroom has increased. Wading
into that market is Raumfeld,
promising “Hi-Fi for the digital
age” with their eponymous
modular system. Still, you can’t
get far in multi-room audio
without tripping over Sonos, so
the question is whether the little-
known German start-up can
compete. Check out the full

of the system, a router-sized black
