So Much for that Idea

I've been toying with the idea of getting an HTC Hero, Sprint's Android phone. Unfortunately, Sprint dashed my hopes today. Here's the down and dirty. I don't use the voice features of my phone much. I don't make many traditional phone calls. For that reason, I have a cellular plan ...

More Fun with Prowl

We talked a few weeks ago about using Prowl to send Google Voice (GV) SMS messages to your iPhone or iPod touch. That solution works like a charm, but it was a little on the techno-geeky side and a person would probably need at least basic coding skills to ...

You Are Here

I've been experimenting with yet another social networking doohickey the last few days. As far as I've been able to figure, Brightkite is essentially location-aware Twitter. Why is that cool? Well, in and of itself, I'm not sure it is. It works like this. As you move around during the ...

Sync

G3

The iPhone G3 may be technologically superior to it's older brother, but after seeing hi-res pictures of the two devices side by side, I think the industrial design on the original was better. The two things that especially caught my eye were the backside and the microphone grills. At least ...

Frenzy

Is it me, or has the Apple frenzy this week really been thrown into overdrive? This may rival last summer's iPhone launch. The choreography of these things fascinates me. As of this morning, the iPhone App Store is live as is MobileMe. New versions of iTunes and the AppleTV software have ...

iPhone SDK Lameness

So I downloaded the iPhone SDK and finally found a few extra minutes to play with it a bit last night. If you've worked with XCode and Cocoa before, the learning curve is minimal. At first, I was just using the iPhone simulator for testing. It seems to work ...
