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…

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.

“Cookie Cutter” Lawsuits Against Apple are Shameful

"Cookie Cutter" Lawsuits Against Apple are Shameful
Apple is being hit by a series of “copycat” lawsuits in a display of “lawsuit mentality” at its absolute worst. Four times in the last two weeks Apple has been hit with lawsuits related to the iPhone 3G’s speed – and each one appears to be almost identical to the other. Apple Insider even goes Read more…

What the iPhone Needs Less of are Public Domain Books

What the iPhone Needs Less of are Public Domain Books
I’m a developer. I deal with the Books section of the App Store more than any other part of iTunes mobile downloading juggernaut because of the comics that I have in the store. One thing that is really depressing about the Books section of the App Store is the insane number of public domain books Read more…

Who’s ready for iPhone OS 3.0? THIS GUY!

Who's ready for iPhone OS 3.0? THIS GUY!
I’ve hit the 9th page. I keep deleting things I don’t really HAVE to have on my iPhone, but I keep hitting the 9th page again and again. I love downloading new Apps from the App Store, and trying out new things. Sure, I don’t have 9 pages of stuff that I HAVE to use Read more…
