Magic Charger - Inductive Charging for your Magic Mouse
The concept of inductive charging is pretty interesting to me. I’m not a fan of wires, and every night I have to plug in my iPhone to get charged for the next day. Although there are lots of different options out there to fix that problem in the iPhone, they all look clunky and large Read more…

Apple Gazette Reviews: Twitter for iPad
When Twitter bought Tweetie, I wasn’t sure what to think. I was a big fan of the iPhone app, and I wasn’t exactly positive how they could improve it. A few months later they made a bunch of improvements, and I now use it multiple times a day. Once I got the iPad, I realized Read more…

OG AppleTV Gets the Shaft

OG AppleTV Gets the Shaft
When the new AppleTV was announced, I was pretty excited – obviously – but then I started to wonder about what this meant for my original AppleTV that was housed in the living room. The UI looks the same on the new version with just a few changes, so wouldn’t it make sense that there Read more…

FaceTime on the iPod Touch
If you had asked me two months ago what three things I could count on to be 100% reliable, I would’ve said death, taxes, and the iPod Touch is going to get FaceTime. Apple has been making a big push for the technology to take off since the iPhone 4 came out this summer, and Read more…
