  • Apple beginning to ban jailbreakers from the App Store? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted February 15th, 2010 at 7:32 am
    **Update: After a solid 8 hours have gone buy, I haven't seen anywhere else on the net where random jailbreakers have been banned from the App Store. It appears for now, Apple is targeting the hackers who find exploits in the iPhone OS and then release new versions of jailbreak software for the rest of us. Are end users safe? For now it looks like it. But if Apple is moving to block exploit seekers, trickling down to the common user could be a very real possibility. I'm not exactly sure...
  • Maemo + Moblin = MeeGo
    by Dirk

    Talk about a short lifespan -- Nokia's next gen mobile OS, Maemo, was effectively killed today at MWC with the announcement that the companies very own Maemo and Intel's Moblin would be joining forces and emerge as a completely separate entity dubbed "Meego". According to Nokia, Meego won't just be for phones, but for pretty much "anything with a processor on board". Hmm, the whole Android creep into every device just got a worthy competitor. Interesting As we've all come to realize since ...
  • Android to gain another browser: Skyfire

    Holla! Whoop whoop! Time to get excited. Skyfire is coming to Android! Mobile browsing has steadily gotten better over the last several years with better hardware and software teaming up. Regardless of what OS, processor, or type of display you have, the only thing that truly matters in mobile web browsing is the browser itself. Even today, most phones have pretty craptastic apps installed called "browsers", with some manufacturers even going as far as to brag about the "HTML" aspect. E...
  • MWC 2010: Opera Mini for iPhone

    One of the few parts of the iPhone that is generally free from any criticisms is it's Mobile Safari browser. As far as mobile browsers go, it's nearly perfect with blazing speed, extremely accurate rendering, and drop dead simple navigation. But you can't please everyone with a single product. No matter how good a product is, it's always nice to have a second or third choice. As far as third party iPhone browsers go, there aren't too many legitimate contenders. Sure, there several 3rd party...
  • Think you’re a speed typing champ? Step aside: human cyborg manages 56wpm on iPhone…in portrait mode!

    I'm a pretty fast texter, averaging in the high 30's to low 40's on a smartphone. I've had years of practice. I am far from the fastest however. That title may reside in this mans hands -- literally. Using nothing but iTextSpeed (iTunes Link - $0.99), the gentleman below was able to achieve a brisk 56wpm on his iPhone. Lest you've forgotten, I have a Moto DROID and I use the physical keyboard pretty much all the time. Using the iPhone's onscreen keyboard is a completely different beast. ...
  • Read SD cards on your iPhon ewith “ZoomIt”
    by Mike

    One of the chief complaints I see with certain Apple laptops is the lack of more ports. The SD port in particular was a big one until Apple recently added them to the Macbook Pros. But an iPhone? The makers of "ZoomIt" seem to think the iPhone platform is a perfect fit for their services. In order to get the full experience, you'll need to pick up both the iPhone ZoomIt app and ZoomIt SD card adapter that attaches itself to the phone. Once plugged in, users can transfer over photos from the ...
  • “Intuitive UI” learns how you use your Android device, adjust homescreen accordingly.

    Intelligent apps and gadgets are on the cusp of becoming "the next big thing". Being "intelligent" is sort of tied into a form of AI, though even now our gadgets and electronics are still quite a ways from such things. But just because they aren't as forward thinking or rational as true AI enabled devices, intelligent devices are here right now. One such option is found in "Intuitive UI", a homescreen replacement for Android users. It is this UK-based company, Intuitive User Interfaces, ...

    Oh sweet heavenly almighty power above. Can we have actually have our cake and eat it too? If Myriad, the clever minds behind Delvik Turbo, have their way, sugar highs and full stomachs will soon be coming to Android users. The core of Android is a special form of Java called Delvik. Delvik Turbo is an optimized form of said code. According to the claims of Myriad, the optimization is good for up to a 3x boost in the general speed of Android as well as dramatically increased battery life. ...

    Say what? To pretty much everyone in world who has seen an iPhone, the iPhone is the pinnacle of mobile computing/smartphones. Till this day, no one has quite copied the ease of use and cohesiveness of the hardware, software, and features. Though the platform isn't without it's problems. Most notably, the walled garden that Apple has erected around the iPhone has caused controversy since day 1. The iPhone walled garden has been called many things. A "mobile platform strategist, consultant,...
  • On the fly language translation coming to mobile phones within the next few years?
    by Mike
    Posted February 8th, 2010 at 8:49 am
    As fun, exciting, and simply cool as learning a second language is, some people just don't have enough time or money to do so. Learning another language later in life after you've already spent an entire lifetime with one language is a pretty daunting task. The internet and digital devices in general have helped curb that learning curve and reduce the amount of time needed to learn another language. But the same problem exists -- we are still having to "learn", which takes valuable time. For...
