TechCrunch Weekend Roundup – Including Lasers

If you missed the weekend posts, here’s a summary of what we wrote about. The CrunchGear guys are coving CES and MacWorld. While I was droning on about dying startups and the possible Web 2.0 Bubble, Oliver at MobileCrunch was playing with a really cool laster pointer (see image). I have no idea what it has to do with “mobile” but I want one.

We also launched the TechCrunch Forums last Friday. We’ll write an update later this week, but the early signs are great. People have started around 250 threads so far, with about 2,300 messages. Lots of good stuff going on there.
