Hulu may not have a new owner yet, but it does have an international presence now that it launched a subscription service in Japan today. Hulu.jp brings “hundreds of premium feature films and thousands of episodes of popular TV shows” to bear, for ¥1,480 per month (.19 US). The service is appears to be bringing an American flavor to the island, with film selections like Pirates of the Caribbean, Armageddon and Men in Black and TV shows including Criminal Minds, Desperate Housewives, Fringe and Grey’s Anatomy. Overall the list looks more like Netflix than Hulu’s free or Plus services in the US do. So far Japanese users can stream the content directly to Panasonic TVs, iOS and select Android devices, with Panasonic Blu-ray players, Sony Blu-ray players and TVs, Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles and Android tablets all relegated to the “coming soon” list. Check the press release after the break for a full list of content providers signed up so far or just hit the source link to try out a free month so you can decide whether or not it’s worth your yen.

We had a pretty clear indication that some official word was coming soon
, and Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi have now confirmed that they intend to pool their LCD manufacturing efforts and form a new joint venture (expected to be completed by the spring of 2012). That effort is getting a .6 billion shot in the arm courtesy of a Japanese government-backed investment fund, which itself will own 70 percent of the new company — to be dubbed Japan Display — while Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi will each get a 10 percent share.

We all feel anger every now and then (some more than others), and having a way to express your rage in a fun app is the aim of Rage-O-Meter by XDA forum member beefalo.
It’s quick and simple – drag the pulsating orb of rage into position, press and hold the broadcast button, and send your rage into the world. The app integrates with Facebook and Twitter to send messages to your social networks, allowing faster rage relief via mass empathy.
The dev states that the app was inspired by medical residents in Philadelphia, who kept a Rage-O-Meter on a dry erase board in the common room. When things in the ER or VA had driven the residents crazy, they would come and vent on the Rage-O-Meter without having to scream at their patients!
Rage-O-Meter is available for free in the Marketplace, for more information, check out the application thread.
It’s been a few months since Improv Electronics updated its line of Boogie Board eWriters
, and tomorrow at IFA the company’s set to show off its latest variant, dubbed Rip (“Record. Image. Preserve.”). The 9.5-inch pad is slightly improved from Improv’s previous iterations, as it’ll allow you to actually save any scribbles you’ve jotted down. Better yet, you’ll be able to export your doodles to a computer via its onboard micro-USB port. On the device you’ll find an erase lock to ensure your notes don’t get deleted, along with a stylus holder in case you’re prone to misplacing things. Similar to IE’s other Boogies, the Rip’s reflex LCD
uses power only to erase what you’ve written, meaning you’ll get about a week’s worth of battery life per charge. There’s no word on pricing yet, but we’d imagine it’ll be a bit easier on the pockets than a Wacom Inkling
— we shall find out when it ships out on November 1st. Full PR past the break.

Sony has unveiled a couple of rather ballsy offerings at IFA 2011 in the form of the SRS-BTV25 and RDP-V20iP. The compact spherical units pack Sony’s 360° Circle Sound audio diffusion technology that promises to deliver omnidirectional sound to all corners of a room. The SRS-BTV25 model is designed to play audio streamed from Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, Walkmans and iDevices, while the RDP-V20iP is an iPhone/iPod charger and speaker dock that can be controlled via an included remote…

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Connector will always be a curious oddity in the Mac App Store. After all, the tool is designed solely for those who use OS X and Windows Phone. Fortunately, Ballmer and company have gone to great lengths to make this unholy union as seamless as possible, and its latest version adds additional support for Mango devices and a whole host of new features. Amongst the mix is the ability to sync with Aperture, import files via drag-and-drop and transfer ringtones (although, that last feature is only for Windows Phone 7.5 users). You’ll also find improved video conversion, refined backup and restore options, and support for 13 additional languages. Hey, nobody said it was easy to stand out from the crowd, but at least Microsoft has made it just a bit easier.
Windows Phone 7 Connector 2.0 tastes of Mango, makes conspicuous debut in Mac App Store originally appeared on Engadget on Wed, 31 Aug 2011 23:01:00 EDT. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

I have a Torch 9800. On my Facebook app, I get lots of status updates from friends playing things like Ravenfair, Bejeweled, etc. I have these blocked on my computer but they continue to show up on my phone. How do I hide them? There are too many and I have no interest in viewing them.
