MobileMe is a lot like my Uncle Norman. I never see or think about him, until that one time of year when he sends me a birthday card, or someone opens up a scrap book from when I was three and there’s a picture of him right next to that one of me with diaper Read more…

Don't Worry, They're Here to Save the Apps: Wholesale Applications Community Formed
I’m a firm believer in competition. It makes companies innovate, it pushes new ideas, and it gets things done. But sometimes, the competition does things that are so stupid that it defies belief. CNN is reporting the following: AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and 24 other companies have formed what they’re calling the Wholesale Applications Community, they Read more…

Phil Schiller: SI & Playboy are Good, Everything Else, Not So Much
I’m not a prude. In fact, I’m a pretty typical heterosexual guy who likes women in all different manners of dress. Of course, I’m not everybody, which brings me to a story. I know a family of people who are super nice and have very well adjusted children, who are 11 and 9 or so Read more…

Filed Under Funny: Cracked Magazine's 5 Reasons You Should be Scared of Apple
I did a little bit of stand-up about 5 years ago. For a year or so, I did some local gigs, performed at some horrible bars, and never got paid for a bit of it. I had a bunch of fun, but I decided I’d rather be snarky in print or online instead. Cracked has Read more…

Download on the Go: Apple Upgrades 3G App Downloading from 10mb to 20mb
[Picture from Wired.com] One of the more frustrating things about the App store for me was the limitations on downloads. I’d be out and about and want to install a new app, but I couldn’t because I couldn’t find a decent Wi-Fi connection. Now, that problem may be abated a bit, because Apple has upped Read more…
