We all know about Apples ‘Rumored’ tablet and the Archos Android Tablet, and even TechCrunch has one.  Well, a new rumor from Gizmodo (images and video) has hit the interwebs.  MicroSoft has a new tablet!  Now this seems like a lot of vaperware, but assuming it runs Onenote, it could be pretty cool. I like… Read More


That’s right kiddies!  Your iPhone just does not do it anymore eh?  Since upgrading to 3.0 you have seen worse performance and even worse battery life since 3.1? (more on that here) Dropped calls eh?  MMS coming in WAY late?  Missed a call… 4 hours ago?  Well, there is a fix to all this.. short… Read More


I have not hidden the fact I have complaints with the iphone and AT&T, but all in all, I still regard the iPhone as the best smart phone out there.  Till just recently.. I have the Android HTC from the Google show, but I have only played with it off and on.  Lately, AT&T service… Read More


Check it here. Oh its on!  Check this post from TC.. “The tablet will rock a 5-inch 800×480 screen that plays back 720p content natively. And lest we forget, the Archos 5 Internet Tablet (that’s what they’re calling it on the AppsLib site) will have an HDMI out and comes with natively embedded OpenGL libraries.”… Read More


The war has not started yet, but the armies are gathering their forces.  Apple is building a tablet based off the iphone OS and the rest of the world will be using Android. So how what will the first skirmish look like? Based on the last known rumors, we have a coming Apple tablet that… Read More


I have been a tablet (convertible) user for a long time.  Recently; I bought an older TC1100 with a SSD instead of a hard drive and installed Windows 7 on it.  Amazing!  But that is for another post.  I originally wanted an Apple tablet… but that’s not going to happen, and here is why. The… Read More


“..Wobble iBoobs is not rated, and the classic first person shooter, Doom, is rated 12+. However, e-book reader Eucalyptus is rated 17+ because you can search the Internet and access the Kama Sutra.”  Really?  And now an app called ‘Cannabis’ (which helps you find legal pot stores) gets through.  Now I’m fine with this app,… Read More


Warning, this is more of a rant then anything.. I want a bloody keyboard for my smart phone.   There are many thing about the iphone that really pisses me off, but so far, only android comes close to the experience.  I was excited about the palm pre till I tried the keyboard.. too small.  The… Read More


I waited till after the weekend to check out the Palm Pre. I was not happy when I saw the first iamges and they had a portrait keyboard instead of a landscape like the G1.  Well, I still held out hope.  … Hopes were dashed. First the plus sides.  The device feels good in my… Read More


I’m not going to go over everything, you can find that anywhere.. I’m instead going to look at a few things that I think are really interesting… HTML5 support!  Why is this so important?  HTML5 is like having flash lite without the plug-in!  (I still wish I had flash though).  But take a look at… Read More


Maybe.  Its $199 if you take on a 2 year plan and send in a $100 rebate.  I HATE rebates.  Enough that it could turn me off from thinking about the Palm Pre, but we’ll see what the user experience is like for sending them in and getting the money back.  Its like giving Palm… Read More


Well, according to macosxhints.  They have not tried it, nor have I, but it seems like it could work. Since the new MacBooks now receive input from the iPhone’s headphones, you can use those headphones as a remote for running a presentation in Keynote ’09: One click starts the presentation. Two clicks moves to the… Read More


At GDC yesterday, I walked past a display showing the ‘Zeemote’.  They had it working with a verity of phones (from the site: major manufacturers like Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG, Motorola, and, Samsung).  Missing of course?  The iPhone!  Why? Because it uses Bluetooth which the iPhone VERY poorly supports. However, times.. they are a chang’in..… Read More


Friendfilter, a service of Twittfilter.com has gone Beta!  Currently, when you get a new follower, twitter sends you a generic email saying.. you got a new follower.. Well, great, but that does not tell me anything. Friendfilter is a service that will check for new followers and score them relative to you.  A scorecard is… Read More


{update} Well, seems like we WILL get a flash!  Wow.   Updated post on the iPhone4 here… Lots of chat about the 4G, each place I’ve checked out for info seems to read like rumor.  Lots of images out there too.  Here is one that was emailed to me.. Its pretty certain Verizon will be… Read More


Last week I read an article in popular mechanics (link here) talking about the various ways, and the level of quality, per option.  Nothing new here that has not already been talked about, except, the missed out on one.. Over ride the CD changer! Why would we want to do something like that?  Well, lets… Read More


Like everyone else, I’m been seeing a string of articles (most based off the wired article) saying Japan hates the iphone. Now hate is a strong word, but I bought most of what I read.  Most..  The only thing that seemed odd to me was the ‘unfashionable’ bit.  Really?  I have my complaints about the… Read More


Finally, my clarifi case arrived.  And so as promised, I did a few experiments… First though, the case itself. It’s a nice case, a bit too smooth for me which makes me fear I will drop it at some point.  I may place a grip sticker on it. The case comes in two pieces, so… Read More


I’ve written a number of posts about using the iphone as a biking, running and even golfing computer. Well, there is the next level. A full training environment!  From SmHeart link. As good as having speed and elevation change is useful for training, adding cardio and other measure, like cadence and power, would bring you… Read More


Once I saw this I knew I had to buy it. Often, when I’ve had a good bottle of wine, I would take a picture of the label so that I could buy that bottle later.  However, because of the focal length of the iphone’s lens, I would only be able to read the larger… Read More
