There's no getting around it: Aol has bought out well-known internet tech news site TechCrunch for an undisclosed amount of money. The acquisition encompasses all of TechCrunch's websites including GreenTech, TechCrunchIT, CrunchBase, CrunchGear and yes, the Crunch Empire mother ship itself, TechCrunch. That's a whole lotta website. The buyout was announced at the TechCrunch Disrupt event by TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington and Aol CEO Tim Armstrong. Armstrong told those in attendance that Aol planned to allow TechCrunch's merry band of journalists and editors to maintain editorial independence despite the plans to integrate TechCrunch websites into the Aol Technology Network.

You’ve probably already got Amazon’s Kindle app on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, or maybe your Android or Blackberry device or even your Mac or Windows computer. Heck, maybe you even have a real, live hardware Kindle! But Amazon isn’t content with stopping there, and now they’ve introduced (drum roll, please) Kindle for the Web -- well, sort of.
The ability to stream online videos is one of the hallmarks of today's web. Videos on any topic you can imagine are just a click (or tap) away, provided you have an internet connection. But what if you're on your way to an internet-less destination? How will you watch your daily workout video (or favorite cat video) once you get there? The solution is simpler than you might think. With Apple's Safari web browser, a few additional clicks will have your video off of the web and onto your hard drive.

This morning, we got the chance to chat over the phone with DisplayMate's president, Dr. Raymond Soneira.
