    If you're still using IE 6 on your own terms, turn of the computer now. For the rest of you being forced by "the man", you have my sympathies. IE 6 is the poster child for living well past your prime. Thankfully YouTube and Google are coming around and realizing that at some point, the madness has to stop. For IE 6 related madness, March 13th is the end of all days according to a fairly invasive new banner/page that is displayed when visiting the video hub on said browser. Ok, maybe not "...

    Like heaping piles of BS early in the morning to get your morning off to the perfect cynical start? Well aren't you a lukcy human, you've come to the right place. As you all may know, Apple recently went an a great purging of any titillating and "sexy" apps from the app store. Thousands of apps showing boobs, butts, and stomachs were removed from the App Store because apparently, "women and children were bitching in mass numbers". The real factoid that pushes this from stupid to utter BS how...

    Since way back in 2007, Apple has been pretty strict about sexual content in the App Store. At first there was just cause -- there wasn't really any easy or robust measures set in place to protect the kiddies from the horrors of nipples and wieners. Then came OS 3.0 and better parental controls. It even got to the point that Apple was starting to switch sides by approving iBoob and iBabe app to the joy of many iPhoners alike. But just as fast as it all started, it's ending -- a burning, cras...

    Besides world hunger, rampant diseases, and a good chunk of the world ready to slit the others' throat, the most obvious thing that we need at this point is another app store. While Apple's App Store certainly has it's fair share of problems -- as does the Android Market, RIM's App World, Windows Marketplace, Nokia's Ovi Store, and Palm's App Catalog to name the most prominent and relevant -- it seems someone else thinks they can do us consumers better. Except this time, the person launching t...

    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. ...
  • Geeky-Gadgets iPhone app finally approved. Long waits, multiple rejections, and stupid reasoning aplomb.

    Travel back in time inside your mind to November 25th when we touched on fellow tech blogger Geeky-Gadgets' less than stellar interaction with the App Store and the mindless idiots who run it. November 4th: App Submitted / November 25th app rejected If you remember, the original Geeky-Gadgets app that was submitted on November 4th was rejected because of the contest category and some BS rule in the iPhone SDK that prohibits including or linking to such things. "Fair enough" said Ronald, e...
