I’m sure you have seen the news.  Microsoft has a private beta out there for 48, now 24 hours, and then … well we do not know what will happen then.  However, the simple beta is mostly about getting bluetooth notification with Pebble to work.  Although this sounds pretty simple and not indicative of an… Read More

Before Windows Phone and the Windows Store, some of the software most associated with Microsoft was Office. But though the Office portfolio has undergone several updates and refreshes over the years, the lineup itself has remained relatively unchanged — until now. Microsoft rolled out a preview version of Sway , its new storytelling app, which… Read More

pebble locker

This is a very cool app.  The way it works is very simple.  When the phone detects that it is near the watch (makes a bluetooth connection), it unlocks the phone.  When that connection is lost, it locks the phone up again.  Sweet!  Its called Pebble Locker and its not a Pebble app, but an… Read More

Not much more I can say here.  A fap gauge for the Pebble smart watch.  FapGauge. Pretty straight forward: – up button starts recording – down button stops – long press on the select button erases the highscore Records how long you take, how many faps total end faps per second. The highest fps is… Read More

I have been using the iphone 4 for a long time now.  It works well.  I had it jailbroken and customized to do what I want. Never did update to the iPhone 4S and also skipped out on the five because I was too invested in the old docking station.  So much so, I had… Read More


OK, so we still have yet to see the Promise on iOS unjailbroken fully realized, but we are getting closer.  A few days back a new App was deployed in the App store called Smartwatch Pro.  This app give those non jailbroken iPhone users a little closer to their Android brethren.  Here4 is what version… Read More


Augmented Reality (AR) has been around for a long time, but it has yet to really find a local role in a major vender.  That has changed.  IKEA has a new app that work on both iOS and Android that will allow you check out various IKEA furniture as it would look in your place.… Read More


Today Pebble released update 1.2.   So far, the only thing I have noticed is Gmail support.  But that is huge. I know with Android you can already do this with various tools, but for non jailbroken iOS users, this is a great new function. Now this is not the greatest thing in the world if… Read More

I finally got my Pebble watch after near a year from when I bought it on kickstarter.  When I first bought it I figured, well there will not be many applications at first, but hopefully some core useful apps will come out.  Now that I have the watch my reaction is .. meh.  However, Best… Read More


microsoft listens

So Microsoft reversed itself.  All along they have been claiming that DRM is the soul of the system, and they reverse it in a few days.  What a joke. Here is the thing, the can turn it back on again anytime they want.  Also, now they claim they had to remove family and other features. … Read More


Well this came from nowhere.  I guess they do not want to give iPhone users any more reason to get another iPhone instead of a Windows phone, but Office is Microsoft’s biggest profit product, and they know they need to move to the cloud with 360, so they bit the bullet and released an iPhone… Read More

The rumors were true. Apple has finally overhauled its UI; and it looks like a combination of Metro and flaticons (Jailbreak).  I guess that says something for the Metro design approach. The redesign is cleaner and more efficient, but somehow it just does not sit well.  It feels like its trapped between Metro and the… Read More
