    Very cool that P2 covers the new start-ups at events like TechCrunch50. The ToonsTunes site got a lot of interest and won the audience vote for best of category that morning (against Penn and Teller's iPhone app). My daughter is having fun with it.

    Thanks David! We try to cover up start-ups as much as we cover gadgets too. It seems like covering gadgets has more value for our advertisers, but we enjoy writing about start-ups because they're the ones revolutionizing the Internet for years to come.

    BTW, just checked out the Magnity website and it looks awesome. Great design for a marketing company.
