  • Palm more consumer/jailbreak friendly?
    by Mike
    Posted June 24th, 2009 at 6:05 am
    While Apple has time and time again negatively talked about jailbreaking, even going as far as to saying that it is illegal, Palm it seems is taking a different approach. A recent statement from Palm says: “We recognize that some developers will experiment in ways that cross official boundaries, but we believe that our formal offerings – and community efforts built around those offerings – will provide the best experience for the vast majority of webOS developers and users.” Tha...

    Many people would consider them self free spirits in the sense that they live life in the here and now, unfettered by long term promises or goals. Why live for what may never come? Often, such individuals, being the free spirits that they are, can't stand the daily routine of having to sit down and plug in their beloved gadgets. Thankfully there is now *kind of* (seeing as you still have to attach something to a wall via cord) a solution with the WildCharge iPhone Wireless Charger. Said char...
  • iPhone Gmail web portal gets new swipe features

    For some time now, Gmail users have requested an official Gmail app that would allow them to do so much more with their gmail than the stock or online Gmail portal. The reason for the MIA app is unknown, (feel free to speculate your own stories now), however, it seems that users will get something rather sweet that should lessen the regressions felt. Google has updated the Gmail web portal to include swiping features similar to the swiping done in native apps. Remember, this is all d...
  • HTC Hero finally faced
    by Mike
    Posted June 24th, 2009 at 5:16 am
    The HTC Hero is one of those handsets that at least in the true gadget nerds life has been talked about quite often in the last several weeks. The excitement doesn't come from the fact that it's an HTC phone. Nor does the Android OS bring much new to the table. The real talk of the town was/is the new UI (previously called "Rosie" called "sense") that HTC has polished up and slapped on giving it a more "unique" feel. From the pictures above, they've managed to alter the already good ...
  • As usual, AT&T resorts to nickel and diming

    All I can say is thank god there will be more than just one turn-by-turn navigation app in the app store. While AT&T;'s navigation app looks really nice and has a pretty stellar feature set to boot, the $10/month price tag is simply stupid (read: another money grabbing attempt because they don't already over-charge you enough for iPhone service). A simple $20-$40 one time payment would have been sufficient. Personal matters aside, AT&T; Navigator includes: voice-guided turn-by-turn navigati...
  • Handmark & Pinstack announce/release new mobile app for Smartphone users
    by Mike
    Posted June 23rd, 2009 at 8:55 am
    Throughout the relatively short lifespan of the BlackBerry (in gadget years), PinStack has been there providing some of the best BlackBerry news around while also giving BlackBerry users a place to openly share ideas and information regarding the beloved crack devices. In recent times, Pinstack has branched out from just BlackBerries and now covers many different types of smartphones from various walks of life. Even though there was and still is a mobile version of the web site, with mobile a...
  • Amazon loves the fine print…and screwing their customers of course
    by Mike

    The Amazon Kindle is one of if not the most popular eBook reader around. The iPhone/iPod Touch I would half hazzardly guess aren't too far behind with the recent addition of an Amazon eBook reader app for said devices. One of the great features of digital books is that you can more or less transfer your books between devices, delete/redownload when storage is low, and generally enjoy freedom. However, according to Amazon and some rather unintelligent policies by Amazon themselves, their eBo...
  • U.S.A.: Against internet sensorship internally, more than happy to help externally
    by Mike
    Posted June 23rd, 2009 at 7:55 am
    In what can be a sad revelation and truth to come to terms with, the U.S. of A. is not as steadfast in their "free internet" beliefs outside of home grown soil. While the internet in the U.S. is uncensored, and hopefully will remain that way for.....ever, it seems we have different motives elsewhere. When you take a step back and look at the bigger picture, the west *that's the U.S....among others* is one of the top providers and supporters of internet censoring software and tactics outside ...
  • iPhone’s “Find My iPhone” super easy…..easily disabled that is.
    by Mike
    Posted June 23rd, 2009 at 7:25 am
    Data theft and gadget theft are two things that the electronic guru often worry about. Getting your prized gadget stolen is hard enough. Getting your identy manhandled is no walk in the park either. In OS 3.0, Apple introduced a nifty "Find My iPhone" feature that would allow iPhone users to track and find their lost or stolen iPhone through Mobile Me. Super! However, Apple managed to overlook one small detail. Well, a few actually. The new Find My iPhone feature can be circumvented rat...
  • Become a dust bunny slaying machine with the Backpack Vacuum
    by Mike
    Posted June 23rd, 2009 at 7:03 am
    Why would anyone want to lug around an unwieldy and cumbersom vacuum cleaner when they can simply, left, hang, and suck? The Backpack Vacuum is aiming to revolutionize how you, the dust bunny hating consumer, put an end to the dust bunny revival. While dust will always accumulate, the never ending battle can at least be easier, less cumbersome, and dare I say...just maybe even slightly cool? Nah. Cool is stretching it a bit too far. At least you won't have to worry about stumbling over th...
  • iPhone OS 3.0 on non-3GS devices slow, stuttery, and just plain terrible?
    by Mike
    Posted June 23rd, 2009 at 6:30 am
    While many people took the time, money, and resources to upgrade to the new iPhone 3GS, some of us who either weren't compelled enough by the minor updates or simply didn't have the money stayed behind. One of the best parts about the coming of the new iPhone was the release of iPhone OS 3.0 which brought with it numerous enhancements for legacy users of older iPhones. The initial honeymoon was great. People were affixed to their devices trying out all of the new features that 3.0 brought. ...
  • Enjoy audio nirvana with the Monkey Head Speaker
    by Mike
    Posted June 23rd, 2009 at 6:18 am
    Nothing says class and sophistication like a cute little monkey head blasting whatever it is that you call music into the open air. While some people use boring and more reserved styles of self expression through speakers, you aren't one to sit back and blend in with the rest of normalcy that is called life. No, you expressive fiend you, you grab life by the horns and blare your music loud and proud through the Monkey Head Speakers and their 2W of output power. After blaring has come to an...
