  • ConvertBot 1.4 rejected because icon looks too much like stock time icon [Stupidity]
    by Mike

    Another day, another fine example of Apple's App Store employees' incompetence, stupidity, useless, and all out lack of common sense. The app caught up in the web of stupidity today happens to be one of, if not the best measurement converting app available: ConvertBot (iTunes Link). Featuring a highly futuristic and extremely slick and intuitive layout has helped ConvertBot become my number one favorite conversion app in the app store. So why are Apple's reviewers all in a circle drooling o...

    Are you the type that classifies yourself as an audiophile? Do you scrutinize every song you listen to for the smallest digital artifacts or loss of quality? If you slave over music because you love everything about it and fit the former example plus you so happen to tote around an iPod for portable music goodness, you may want to give SendStation's PocketDock a good hard look. The latest iteration of the PocketDock manages to give users an audio, video, and even mini-USB connection through...
  • TIME: 25 Back-to-school gadgets for the dollar tree families
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 8:55 am
    Every geek big or small, young or not so young may use the back-to-school season as an excuse/reason to splurge on that new gadget they've been waiting on or holding out for. Even if you're not a student, there are often some great deals to be had as companies and manufacturers far and wide want to cash in on the spending spree that takes place every year 'round the time the bell's start to ring. Since we live in the digital age, it seems fitting that as we move towards more and mroe digital...
  • ChromePlus: Adding IE-tab support and so much more to Google Chrome since…NOW
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 8:07 am
    Even though Google Chrome doesn't enjoy as much success as IE or Firefox, it is still a very capable browser that in it's current Beta 3 form is of the quickest browsers around. It's lightweight while still looking relatively stylish. I personally like the style though some may find the playskool-ish style a bit to childish for their tastes. Moving on, one thing that draws people to Firefox are extensions, extensions, and more extensions which allow you to customize Firefox to the moon and ...
  • Is “PC World” a new Macworld competitor?
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 7:50 am
    Now I know PC World is not turning anytime soon. They started as a PC oriented magazine many years ago and to this day still are for the most part. Though a website with "PC" in the title and one that has had such a high focus on PC's and Windows related content declaring OS X 10.6 as the "brainiest, brawniest, and most beautiful consumer-oriented OS available anywhere" brings a chuckle to my lips. Even though Windows 7 isn't publicly available in final form yet, anyone that's a geek, espec...

Well, you could check out the support document on Apple's site, or you could just Look at the image below and see for yourself. Did your favorite application make the cut? Of course more ...
  • Atari noise maker helps you relive the classic days of 8-bit goodness.
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 7:12 am
    For some, the games of today while visually dazzling and at times deeply involved just don't have the same pick-up-and-playability of the classics. Back in the 8-bit day, sitting down and starring at a dude on the screen comprised of a dozen blocks was high tech back then. Similarly, the sounds and "music" that accompanied these wonders of science were something else themselves. If those beeps, bops, bams, and slams were sweet sweet music to your ears, the Atari Noise Maker may be just the ...
  • 2 is always better than 1 [GScreen Dual-Screen Laptop]
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 7:00 am
    For most valuable or lusted after objects, two is always better than one. If one of any particular object gives you great joy, than two can only double it right? While it doesn't always work like that, I'm pretty sure the effect the GScreen Dual-Screen laptop has on you will be at least 50% more favorable than a competing single screened model. Such a design requires extra special attention be payed to the construction of the housing around the screens as even a slight bump could render th...

  • iStat for iPhone now useless — Apple removes “free memory” option
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 4:11 pm
    Ya know, while I really enjoy using my Macbook Pro and a few other Apple pieces of hardware, I am really, really beginning to despise this piece of shit called an iPhone and the company that makes it. Why the harsh, colorful, anti-elementary language? iStat Pro was a great little memory management app (I use that term loosely because Apple's BS restrictions restrict any "memory management app" being used to their fullest potential) that would show you all sorts of information about the memor...
  • Yelp has secret AR abilities
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 3:57 pm
    Seems like the Yelp development crew pulled a fast one on Apple. It appears that the current version of Yelp available in the App Store has a secret feature dubbed "Monocle". This hidden feature can only be accessed by shaking your iPhone 3GS (S only?). Once the feature is active, little boxes pop up telling you all sorts of goodies about restaurants around you. What's pretty strange is that technically, AR isn't really supposed to go mainstream until 3.1. Seems Yelp is doing the dirty te...
  • Run for the hills — WPA encryption cracked [From the department of: It's not really that bad]
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 1:49 pm
    At first, the title may start your heart into a flurry of disassociated beats leaving you lost, scared, and hopeless. While a team of researches in Japan did in fact crack WPA encryption, the world is far from over. First, how did they do it? Simple. By exploiting a flaw in the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) they managed to blow a WPA TKIP protected network wide open. Now again, this is easily fixed -- simply switch to WPA AES or move on to greener, more heavily fortified WPA2 pas...
