Oregon Trail coming to iPhone

Oregon Trail coming to iPhone
If you’re close to thirty or above, chances are you remember a game called “The Oregon Trail”. It is a classic computer game that looked something like this… I remember very clearly that “The Oregon Trail” was one of, if not THE first computer game I ever played. The game was a “reward” in our Read more…

Are you excited about Snow Leopard?

Are you excited about Snow Leopard?
I could care less about Snow Leopard at this point. I really dislike the name. I think it’s going to confuse casual users. I think Apple has lowered our expectations on it on purpose, which I think is a good idea, but I’ve been left with a sort of “who cares” feeling when it comes Read more…

Apple asks Google to keep Multi-touch out of Android

Apple asks Google to keep Multi-touch out of Android
So it turns out that Apple asked Google last year not to implement multi-touch in Android…and Google said yes. It’s a move that some see as odd, but it really makes a lot of sense for both parties when you think about it. Google needs Apple right now…the iPhone features a great deal of Google Read more…

iPhone – Raising a Generation on Touch Screen Keyboards

iPhone - Raising a Generation on Touch Screen Keyboards
The iPhone was my first smart phone. Up until it was released, I never saw a reason to carry a “smart phone” around with me. They didn’t do what I wanted done in a way that I wanted to do it. As a result, I never got used to, or addicted to, the Blackberry way Read more…

Apple just can’t seem to get a deal done with China Mobile for the iPhone. The current sticking point is the App Store – and it looks like it may end up being a deal breaker. China Mobile wishes to maintain control and sell applications through the App Store itself – which is something that Read more…

Apple seeks Your Advice on the AppleTV

Apple seeks Your Advice on the AppleTV
Apple is looking to improve the AppleTV – and they want to know what you would like to see. In a very uncharacteristic move, Apple has posted an online survey asking you where you get your content, what you watch it on, and even what kind of remote you use with the device. I’d love Read more…

The iPhone is Useless in New York City

The iPhone is Useless in New York City
This weekend I’ve been in New York City. The wife and I did a few touristy things like visit the Statue of Liberty, take a carriage ride through Central Park, walk through Times Square, and see a show on Broadway. I also attended the 2009 New York Comic-Con. Through all of this, however, my iPhone Read more…

Steve Wozniak is going to be “Dancing with the Stars”

Steve Wozniak is going to be "Dancing with the Stars"
I have to say, I didn’t think I’d ever be writing this…or anything even remotely like this…but Steve Wozniak will be appearing on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC. I can’t imagine him lasting long on the show – but honestly, I have no idea what his dancing skill level is…he Read more…

Time Warner to Expand “Data Cap” Program

Time Warner has decided to expand their data cap limit pilot program to other cities after satisfactory tests in Beaumont, TX. The company plans to offer the packages at a rate higher than their current 40 GB limit (which would limit a customer to downloading roughly 10 HD-quality movies per month…or less). These limits are Read more…
