If you recall, Sharp hit the mark back in December, when Qualcomm promised to invest around $ 120 million in the troubled company in exchange for a 5 percent stake. Sharp already received the first half of that windfall at the tail end of 2012, whereas the continuing to be $ 60 million wasn’t visiting dispersed until “ample progress has been made.” If that last bit sounds unclear, Sharp was actually being held to some clear terms: it had until March 29th to wrap up requirements for new power-saving screens that will be used in both tablets and smartphones, and which Qualcomm will help produce. Sharp additionally required to generate an operating profit of 100 billion yen ($ 1.05 billion) in the 2nd half of its fiscal year, though a company representative confirmed that’s not the reason this payment has been stalled. The good news is, like those of us who ever started a paper too late, Sharp is getting an extension, with a new deadline of June 30th. In the meantime, however, its troubles are festering: a bargain for Foxconn to get a 9.9 percent stake appears to have actually failed.

This is a teaser demo of CryENGINE 3.4, Crytek’s latest gaming engine. So yeah, these are some of the sick graffix you can expect to see in the upcoming Crysis. Unless we’re talking about my upcoming personal crisis , in which case it’ll probably be a lot more long showers, crying, and not wanting to get out of bed in the morning. I’m a delicate flower.
Hit the jump for the eye candies.
Comcast’s Xfinity TV app for iOS has seen more than a few updates since it launched back in 2010 that added support for video on-demand streaming anywhere, live TV in-home with additional hardware and made various tweaks to the UI. Despite all that, until today’s update doing something as doublechecking what was scheduled for recording on your DVR required popping out of the app and signing into a different webpage. The new integrated DVR Manager can be seen above and confirms, yes, that Deadliest Catch is securely in our queue for this evening. We’re not sure what’s going to happen in the season eight premiere, but we suspect someone is going to worried about whether or not they’re catching enough crabs on this trip.
You like cats. Even if you’re a “dog person,” or allergic, I still know your little cat-loving secret. And how do I know? Well, since you’re here on TechCrunch it’s apparent that you’re at least mildly interested in the internet, which happens to be infested with cats.
If your cat obsession translates over into real life, as does your ability to hack, then boy do I have a treat for you. It’s called Kitty Twitty, and here’s how it came to be: Mark de Vinck’s wife was absolutely love-struck when she got her new cat, but missed little Chester every time she went to work. Instead of constantly intervening to give her updates, Mark decided to build something that completely removed him from the situation. The result is a little wooden cat toy that sends you a new tweet each time your cat starts to play with it.
Courtesy of Arduino, de Vinck was able to put a switchboard inside a little wooden box that instantly relays messages via Twitter. Of course, the Kitty Twitty is also equipped with a wire and a cat toy at the end of it to make sure little Chester (or whoever) is always interested. Mark says this can get even more in-depth by adding sensors to the food bowl or the kitty bed, and that dog lovers should be able to implement the same idea with something Rover might like.
The full instructions on how to build your own Kitty Twitty are here on MakeProjects, and we’d love to hear if yours turn out as well as Mark’s.
Those kind folk at Skype already served up plenty of glorious WiFi waves across US airports this Christmas, and now it’s New York City’s turn. From noon on the 31st until January 1st, if you spy a “Skype WiFi” network, those tasty bytes are yours for the taking. The VoIP don has teamed up with WiFi provider Towerstream for the give-away, and recommends you load-up on the latest version of its famous software to make sure you don’t miss out. If you pack an iDevice, then it’s the Skype WiFi app you’ll be wanting updated in the lead up to midnight. Just make sure you don’t miss that kiss, just for a festive freebie.

Sirius XM releases Lynx radio, ensures that you never miss the beginning of another Jimmy Buffett song
Need a shiny new way to enjoy SiriusXM’s revamped channel lineup? For $ 250, you can pick up the Lynx Portable Radio, which lets you start shows and songs (Jimmy Buffett or otherwise) from the beginning and pause, fast forward and rewind programming. The wildcat radio also stores up to 200 hours of programming and features “dynamic” presets and a show finder, which offers up a programming schedule for the next seven days. It’s currently available online for $ 250 and will be hitting retail shops in the near future. More info on the radio can be read from the beginning in the press release and video trailer after the break. Still no word on that whereabouts of that shaker of salt.
RIM has announced that it will be taking over half a billion dollars in charges related to two major failures this fiscal year. First is the immense overproduction of the Playbook tablet, the writedown of which inventory amounted to $ 485M on its own, or $ 360M after tax. The second charge is related to the prolonged network outage in early October, though it’s unclear whether that money is directly related or being reserved for dealing with ongoing costs like lawsuits.
Sales of handsets and services were as forecasted, but a lack of growth must be inferred by their waning market share, and at any rate the sales weren’t enough to put RIM at their expected revenue of $ 5.3 billion for the upcoming quarter. Quarterly earnings are at a level with (low) predictions of around $ 1.20 per share, but yearly earnings will miss the expected $ 5.25 per share, and analysts are calling for as little as $ 3.50.
That enormous PlayBook charge really indicates how serious a misstep the device was. While there are plenty of happy PlayBook owners out there (especially after recent markdowns), the numbers are nowhere near what RIM must have expected, and sales have been less than half what they shipped. A bit of napkin math has the hundreds of thousands of unsold devices adding up to hundreds of millions in lost revenue, and then of course there are the many thousands of devices that sold at less than the expected price by hundreds of dollars each. Acer recently faced a glut of inventory and admitted its entire strategy needed to be revised. RIM has not shown much contrition despite serious reservations by shareholders analysts.
RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis demonstrated this lack of forthrightness in the earnings report:
RIM is committed to the BlackBerry PlayBook and believes the tablet market is still in its infancy… Early results from recent PlayBook promotions indicate a significant increase in demand across most channels.
October’s outage also affected RIM’s credibility. While even the best services can’t guarantee 100% uptime, the length and seriousness of the outage eroded RIM’s reputation as a reliable business solution. The PlayBook’s lack of enterprise chops and familiar BlackBerry services further contributed to a loss of faith.
RIM has had a bad year, and that’s putting it lightly. But they’re still nearly in line with their predicted earnings and they are, in fact, on the verge up a major product refresh with the new line of QNX/BBX-based BlackBerry devices and a major PlayBook update. A company that stumbles isn’t necessarily a company that falls, but RIM is running out of chances.
