  • iCloud launches iCloud Premium complete with 100GB online storage.

    Online storage and "cloud" services are all the rage these days. With business looking to cut costs and move data storage offsite as well as consumers looking for easier and more convenient ways to share/store their information for easy accessibility may have found iCloud's basic package at 3GB total storage a bit anemic. But the great thing about iCloud was that it wasn't just about storage. Web apps covering multiple spheres including work and play allow consumers to get their work done and...

    In a move that is sure to spur countless ramblings, clown faces, and repetitive though baseless comments from The Balms himself, the L.A. City Council voted an astonishing 12 - 0 on a $7.25 million contract to move all 30,000 of the cities' employees over to Gmail and other Google related apps. Not a small move by any stretch. In fact, after the move is complete, the city of L.A. will be one of the largest municipal users of Google apps. Pretty cool huh? In an effort to prevent mass chaos, t...

    MySpace: dead. Facebook: still growing but old news. Twitter: here and now. YouTube, Flicker, Wikipedia....the list of entertainment, multimedia, and social networking services goes on for days. You take on each service as to it's relevance in the current online world will differ from mine. However, one thing that we can mostly agree on is that navigating to and signing in to each service can be time consuming and a pain. That's where 44 Tips looks to change things up. (more...)...

    UK music lovers and Android hopefuls have quite the treat coming to them by way of Three, HTC, and Spotify. While here in the states, we have yet to be able to partake of this wonderful streaming service, Spotify, European users are diving in like none other. **A quick refresher in case you don't know the awesomeness that is Spotify -- Spofitfy allows users to stream practically any song over WiFi/3G as well as cache playlists on the device for times when you don't have data coverage. ...
  • Best Buy to offer new web syncing service

    Posted October 7th, 2009 at 11:08 am
    Most people know Best Buy as TV, computers, home appliance mega center but Best Buy is adding another facet to their business model: web syncing for smartphones called mIq.  It offers some pretty neat features such as 1GB of storage so one can wirelessly back up photos, contacts, calendar events, text message, call logs, voicemail and even your social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, etc...).  Sound pretty cool so far?  It gets better. The next step mIq takes is to not only allow y...
  • Google Apps *finally* lose that ever pesky beta tag
    by Mike
    Posted July 7th, 2009 at 11:19 am
    Hoorah! Hooray! Google apps to save the day! Ok, pathetic rhyme aside, the removal of the beta tag from Google products at some point today signals that Google is moving beyond their comfort zone: the consumer market. They are in fact setting their sights on the corporate world. It isn't any secret as rumors of such a quest have been circulating for some time now. One of the biggest things that seemed to be holding them up from breaking into that market was their approach to app releases...
  • iPhone Gmail web portal gets new swipe features
    by Mike
    Posted June 24th, 2009 at 5:36 am
    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...

    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...

  • Gmail “Magic Inbox” to make email organization easier/less painful?
    by Mike
    Posted May 21st, 2009 at 2:08 pm
    If you work in an office, have many clients, or are just a popular person, chances are you get bombarded with emails. Now, add on top of that the countless number of spam and junk emails you receive each day and the list of emails to go through, sort, and organize becomes a tedious and monumentous time consuming task. Don't you wish there was a more automated way to organize you email that was easy, unintrusive, automatic, and reliable? If so, Google may be working on something to answer th...

    Google has a reach in the tech world that is growing daily. For some, they fear privacy concerns, for others, they can't get enough of Google and their products and services. For those of you addicted to Gmail and its labels feature, I am proud to announce that you can now take that on the road. Google has revealed that they are now supporting "labels" (by way of many different colors) for iPhone and Android users who use gmail through the web app. So if you are a Gmail junky, now organizi...
  • Napster joing the subscription fray: $5

    Posted May 18th, 2009 at 6:49 am
    If you were a fan of Napster of years past, this article is not for you. Re-emerging after their epic court battle and shut down has created a leaner and not quite as mean online music retailer. Looking to shake things up a bit and get back into the game, Napster is introducing subscription based option for a mere $5! On top of the very attractive low price, you will now also be able to keep 5 "CD quality" tracks per month as an added bonus. There is however one catch. The subscription an...
