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

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

A statement from Apple came out today claiming ‘Jailbreaking an iPhone constitutes copyright infringement and a DMCA violation..’ Well, based on what I’m reading from Fred von Lohmann on the EFF site, I’m thinking no.  Here is why; Apple’s copyright infringement claim starts with the observation that jailbroken iPhones depend on modified versions of Apple’s… 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

Because so many people have been asking, I’ll repost this. FYI: Simcity for iPad came out with cheats. I’m going to test the cheats this week. I went though 10+ known cheat codes for simcity3k and simcity4.  None of them seemed to work.  So as far as I know, only 2 cheats codes work.. i… Read More

Really, THIS my friends is being inventive. @briansolis tweeted this link out from Random Cool Stuff on how to use a barf bag to hold your iphone/ipod.  As a fan of MAKE, I LOVE stuff like this. I only included the one image, but you can see more on the website.  @AdamSigner brought up a… Read More

I have my issues with the iPhone, and I have no problem expressing them, but all in all you have to admit, it’s pretty good.  The OS does a good job at being fast enough to keep up with you (not as much since 2.0) and things are mostly well thought out and designed.  No… Read More

I do not need a battery pack since I have so many power adapters from testing, 🙂 but if I needed one, there are two things I will look for… It should be form fitting such that it becomes part of the phone or at least provide enough protection for the phone such that I… Read More

A while back I shared what looked like a great deal for a car charger for the 3G since my old iphone car charger does not work anymore… Well, had a few problems with it, but to ‘MyNetDeals’ credit, they replaced it with the proper unit.  Seems there are still a few units out there that does not work… Read More

I wrote about this before, link here, and it finally came in the mail.   Well, it works. There was one thing I though was kinda cheap, using a sticker on the remote to make you think it had a display.  Cheesy.  Second I had the impression the remote was going recharged.  Nope. Just a… Read More
