    Do you cherish the internet?  See it as the portal to the world?  Do you download gigs of data everyday?  Every week?  Every month?  Are you downloads pirated content or legitimate stuff?  The RIAA or "the almighty satan" as known by most never really gave up on tracking down individuals.  No, instead they went behind the scenes and started coaxing ISP's to become their new roommates.  Why waste time and money suing a single person when you can have someone else waste their time and...

    Everyone has been getting all hot and bothered lately about Apple's next UI overhaul.  What will it look like?  Well, since iTunes 7 came out with a darker look, you have probably been staring at the next Apple OS UI and didn't even know it.  Apple loves simplicity, eye candy, and used to cherish uniformity.  However, with the darker look in iTunes 7/8 and now the new iLife '09 suite, Apple seems to either be going through a slow transition as to not shock us all at once, or they themsel...

      There's nothing more frustrating than rushing to get ready for whatever occasion, realizing you forgot something on the way to the train station, then getting to the station only to realize your train has been delayed.

Gadget loving readers of mine, if you happen to use Twitter and ride Chicago's Metra train system you can now receive Tweets of Metra train delays.  Read on for the f...

    by Mike

    In what would certainly be a bold new direction in education, the British government is proposing that Twitter be taught in primary schools.  Why?  They want children to get a good grasp and understanding of technology, the internet, and social networking at an early age.  They also see the limitless possibilities that Twitter itself could have in the classroom in regards to communication skills.  Besides Twitter, the proposal also highlights teaching how to make podcasts, blogging, and ...

    Windows Mobile 6.5 not coming until this summer and the design still up in the air, many have kind of almost forgotten about Windows Mobile 7.  Ok, maybe not forgotten, but it has been shoved from the forefront of their minds.  Above is an awesome screenshot of a "claimed" Windows Mobile 7 in action captured by "a kind tipster" who sent the image above to WM Power User.  Is it real?  For all we know it could be a really nice theme or shell on top of WinMo.  If it does in fact turn out t...

    The iPhone 3.0 preview last week revealed to the world Apple's latest up and coming goodies that are on track for this summer.  Copy & paste, multiple photo email, etc were some of the many *average* features added to the iPhones feature set.  Even with more than 1,000 new API's, some developers are still asking for more.  Not more as in more complex, but as in make it easier to make simple apps.  Neven Morgan details on his blog that for something as simple as a pill reminder app to...
