    Since broadband has taken off here in the states (mostly) as well as the rest of the world, people, especially those with older machines that are having a not so easy time keeping up with the increasing demands placed upon them, have started started focusing their attention on cloud services. Of course there is Apple's paid MobileMe service which is decent, there is Microsoft's LiveMesh, Google of course has their own venture and host of services to brag about, and today iCloud, founded by Da...

    If you are the tree hugging, mouting climbing, animal loving outdoorsy type of person, and have gone on at least one small expedition, you may know the scariness and pure helplessness that you feel when roaming the open landscape. Since the dawn of handhelf GPS devices, navigating that open landscape has become more efficient and safer thanks to the ever present eye of technology. For those of you who have witnessed some of the most magnificant corners of the planet and would like to not onl...
  • Visual Voicemail to grace T-Mobile on July 16th?
    by Mike
    Posted May 5th, 2009 at 1:31 pm
    One of the early advantages of the iPhone was the ability to have Visual Voicemail. At the time, it was the only phone with an interface as clean and easy to view and listen to voicemails in the order that you pleased. Fast forward two years and now other carriers and 3rd party vendors are finally starting to release their own Visual Voicemail applications. If the leaked image above, (courtesy of TMO News), showing a T-Mobile release schedule for the second half of the summer has any grains...
  • Missing Sync 2.0 for iPhone adds “Two-way syncing” to the feature list
    by Mike
    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 8:22 am
    If you were a bit peeved by the iPhone and iPod Touches lack of syncing certain files such as notes and documents just to name a couple, Missing Sync was your saving grace. It allowed you to sync files that your Mac that you normally wouldn't be able to borrow from your device. Though, with the first rendition you could only sync files on the mobile device to the Mac, and not the other way around. However, Missing Sync 2.0 now brings the ability for true two-way syncing as to make the mos...

  • July 7th marks the end of the road for .Mac homepages and groups

    If you were a fan of Apple's in house email service known as ".Mac", today will bring a sad announcement and possibly a tear to your eye.  Apple has officially stated that July 7th would be the end of .Mac homepages and groups.  The homepages you currently have would still be accessible, however you will not be able to edit old, or create new pages after said date.  Homepage changes aren't all that bad as you can still use MobileMe and iWeb to get your life out there.  However the .Mac ...
  • Gmail knows all…even when you’re sleeping

    I'm sure some "privacy advocates" will sleep a tad more unsoundly knowing that Gmail now has the ability to know whether you are awake or asleep.  Don't worry, it isn't because of some crazy chip implant or camera network but is merely based on the time zone the sender and recipient reside in.  As you can see in the picture above, persons in red are more than likely preaching to their pillows while the individuals in green should at least have their eyelids open.  While not earth shatteri...

    If you run a website, chances are you care at least a tiny bit about web traffic and who is coming look at and read what you spend countless hours per day producing. Of course there is the free and tried and true Google Analystics. However GA has one slight problem.  It operates on a delay, (though a quick pass through the settings panel can remedy this situation). But does fiddling with settings all of the time just to get a current picture of your site traffic annoy you or slow you dow...

    Nokia may have the lead in market share globaly when it comes to phones, however that market share doesn't mean they're the best.  Most of Nokia's numbers come from low end handsets.  What really has driven smartphones in years past is enterprise support for large coporations.  In this regard, Nokia has fallen short mulitple times.  Nokia brought to market Mail for Exchange (MfE) in order to get a foot in the door of the corporate world and is slowly trying to wiggle their way further in...
  • Redmonds “My Phone” now live

    Barcelona was the home to Microsoft's grand revealing of 2009 as as far as mobile services go. Sadly, while WinMo 6.5 and Windows Marketplace won't be available until late this year, Microsoft did give us something somewhat tangible to get our hands on...My Phone.  For the cave dwellers out there who haven't had the mail dinosaur come by today, My Phone is Microsoft's "MobileMe-esque" cloud syncing service.  The lucky people who pre-registered and received invites got to get in on the actio...

    Mobile Me haters and Microsoft purists who have been looking forward to a response from Redmond to Apple's Mobile Me now (almost) have a legitimate service.  Microsoft's My Phone service has a registration site that has officially been launched...albeit as a beta.  The registration site is now up and running allowing MyPhone hopefuls to sign up on a waiting list for more.  If that sort of thing gets your whistle wet with excitement head on over and sign up and prepare t...
  • MobileMe/Outlook sync gets the fire lit under its you know what
    by Mike
    Posted February 10th, 2009 at 10:29 pm
    MobileMe users using Outlook to sync their mail had previously been the receivers of the short stick in the sense that their "push" mail/events weren't really "push", but more like a poll.  However, Apple seems to be feeling generous or is just tired of getting a million angry emails every day asking when they will implement push on other devices.  According to MobileMe's news blog, Windows users can now enjoy push goodness on their Windows machines starting now.  All that's needed is iTu...
