This is just a rant, but I know its true.  Now as a guy, most of the time I go to the restroom, larger ones, not the single user ones, its a pretty quick story.  I know for women its not the case, and still, we make men’s and women’s restrooms the same size.  That’s… Read More


Reddit

So sweet. I had to login to Reddit just to upvote the rant and comment.  Instead of reprinting the text, I screenshot it for justice.   The basics of this is someone ranting, and rightly so, that a grilled cheese is ONLY bread and cheese.  You add anything else and its a melt.  Now one may… Read More


This is not new news, SimCity5 has had one of the worse release in recent memory.  As a big SimCity fan, I was sadden that I just could not justify paying for this.  I have been waiting for a good hack that will allow me to play offline, then I figured I would buy it. … Read More


begin rant <rant> If you have been trying to order the new iphone 4, I’m sure you have been frustrated with the errors messages you have been getting back from AT&T. “There was a problem with your request,” the error message reads. “P1015: We’re sorry, but we are experiencing a system error that prevents us… Read More


The following text was posted by Lee Brimelow and first spotted by my on TechCrunch.. He replied to the Apple d**k move of locking out any dev’s but X dev’s. More on that here.. So here is his post, in parts.  Go to Lee Brimelow on his Flash Blog to read the whole statement. By… Read More


I’ve been thinking about writing a post on how silly is to get AT&T’s GPS driving directions app/service at 9.99 a month when you can buy a turn-by-turn apps for around $50.  That’s another post. But now I just read on AppleInsider that Loopt has an agreement with AT&T to provide constant location updates for… Read More


I’ve heard this rumor a few times before, but given the recent uptick in AT&T complaints, and a seemingly upper growth cap on iphones, I can see it.  And I really hope so.  I have already complained many times about the poor service in SOMA in the SF area. Here is the part of Piper… Read More


When this story first broke 2 days ago, I though; well they are going to release a patch pretty soon given that the vulnerability is going to be released today at the black hat hackers meeting. Well, guess what I read in CNET?  Apple new about this for 6 weeks!!!  Are you kidding me? From… 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

So, we get a story in the Wall Street Journal talking about Flash on mobile devices.  Adobe says access to mobile is key!  So what is new?  Nothing!!  Apple and RIM still ‘Do not want!’ and Android, Palm and Nokia ‘Do want!’.  I have my HTC from googleIO with Android 1.5.  Looking forward to experimenting… Read More


I was reading a rant on Gizmodo by Jesus Diaz , talking about buying ‘sexy screen wash’ and it started me thinking, who buys this stuff??  I mean it’s pretty obvious it’s crap because it’s in the Apple Store. Now once we get a rating system in place (my proposal here) then we may see a bit more… Read More


A new twitter game has started up called Spymaster. The backlash has already started, but there is still enough spymaster messages out there that make me want to write a filter (on twittfilter) to hide all tweets with spymaster on it.  Now if you remember back at SXSW, there was something similar called Assassin where… Read More


I cannot believe, given how far we have come in social media and community involvement that Palm fails to recognize the value of a strong ‘PRO PALM’ community.  From Scott via slashdot “… The preDevCamp started as a community-driven effort designed to mirror the iPhoneDevCamp based on the new “Pre” product announced by Palm. Unfortunately,… Read More


The NIN app was accepted, then last night I read that a Jesus face app, Me so Holy (replace Jesus with your face) was rejected. Ok, fine, but again, this will offensive to some people, fun to others.  This Boolean approach of Gatekeepers who decided what will and will not by accepted is somewhat dictatorial. … Read More


Arrgg.. every time I read anything about the FAIL on getting flash running on the iphone, it just bugs the heck out of me.  So guess what I read today from cnet? ‘Lynch demonstrated Flash Player 10 on devices running Nokia’s Symbian operating system, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile, and Google’s Android operating system. But the quintessential… Read More


ARrrrggg…  I really liked the old version of igoogle for the iphone.  So today, they changed the format to a general mobile version.  Worse, I have to reselect my tabs again. Fortunately when you select ‘Add Stuff’ at the bottom of the page, my tabs from the desktop format is there, but still,  Grrr.. This… Read More


I really like SimCity for the iphone.  I think they did a great job, esp with the UI.  I still enjoy and lose far more time then intended playing it.  However, there are a number of things that just really piss me off.  Ok, so EA, if you are reading this, take notes..  Beginning rant….… Read More


Except for a few that really makes me feel embarrassed to even be in the same stands with them. Now this is not a comment on the game today, in fact if you want to read someone who knows what he’s talking about, read hughbauns blog. Today Cal played its opener against Mich St. Was… Read More


Sigh.. Ok, another rant on why I regret going to the new iphone.. <rant> During a phone call, quite often the keypad will be displayed and active.  So I will be talking and either I hear beeps, mostly the key “2” or the other phone pad will show up and I’ll brush against the mute… Read More


And why does it sux? Is it the fact that the screen has this faded yellow shade to it? Naw, I can get used to that. I’m sure they made it warmer to extend battery life. A hack will come along to resolve it. Is it the fact that all those cool programs from 1.1.x… Read More
