TomTom for iPhone Updates to 1.5
Last week I penned a review about the TomTom app for the iPhone, detailing my trip to California and how handy the app was (full disclosure: I was given the app for free for review). Anyways, they updated the app to 1.5, and the new features are pretty cool. First off, there’s the higher resolution Read more…

Why I Don’t Care About Google TV

Why I Don't Care About Google TV
[Image via Engadget] I have no interested in the Google TV. I’m sure that at first you’ll assume that it’s because I’m an Apple fanboy, but for me, it’s more about making my life easier than whose label is on the box. Frankly, if Microsoft comes out with a product and it makes my life Read more…

What Apple Needs for the Next iPad

What Apple Needs for the Next iPad
With iOS 4.2, the iPad is finally catching up with the iPhone. Multitasking, printing, AirPlay and more are coming in just a few short weeks, but with it, there’s still the feeling that the iPad could do so much more. We all know that the iPad is going to get a version 2.0 in the Read more…

20 Minutes with iOS 4.2 on the iPad

20 Minutes with iOS 4.2 on the iPad
I’ve got a friend of mine who is an iOS developer, and today he came by my place to rub iOS 4.2 in my face. What a jerk. But since I had it all in front of me, I figured that I might as well give the thing a shot and see how it all Read more…

iPad is Kicking Butt and Taking Names

iPad is Kicking Butt and Taking Names
The iPad is doing all sorts of butt-kicking right now, and it’s taking away from the laptop market. At least that’s what the Wall Street Journal is saying: Best Buy’s strong results for the three months ended Aug. 28 were due to tight expense controls, increased sales of cellphones and services such as connecting televisions Read more…

AppleTV Versus Built-Ins

AppleTV Versus Built-Ins
I was over at my folk’s house the other day, and the subject of the new AppleTV came up. He says to me, “You know, I was at Best Buy the other day, and they have these Samsung TVs with apps built in. Why would I buy an AppleTV?” Admittedly, that’s kind of a tough Read more…

4.2 Can’t Come Quick Enough

4.2 Can't Come Quick Enough
Like millions of you out there, I went ahead and downloaded iOS 4.1 today for my iPhone, an I was pretty happy with the results. No dropped call issues yet, GameCenter is kinda neat, and I like the HDR stuff. But then I went off to read something on my iPad, and the difference was Read more…

iPhone 4.1 Rumored to Come Today - Who's Excited?
No confirmed news of it yet (of course, it’s super early), but rumor has it that iOS 4.1 is coming out today. Who’s excited? When I first heard the news, I got a little giddy, but I wasn’t sure why. GameCenter seems neat in theory, but I’m not really sure how much I’ll be using Read more…

Track Your Run Without the Sensor

Track Your Run Without the Sensor
I’m not what people would call “active.” My wife on the other hand, she’s a little spitfire. She loves going out running, and can’t wait until we can get a new stroller for jogging with our little one. I’ve recently resolved to lose some extra weight though, and I’ve looked to my iPhone for help. Read more…
