  • How would you like to be Gray Powell right about now… [iPhone 4.0 leak]

    By now I'm sure most of you have heard about the leaked iPhone 4.0 prototype hardware. It's quite the departure from previous iPhones. And one departure that is very much still in prototype form, normally kept in extreme protection deep within company headquarters. But, manufacturers have to test their products out in the real world to make sure they do in fact work as intended. But everyone has bad days. For one Gray Powell, the day he lost the iPhone 4.0 prototype will be one that survive...
  • MobileMe online mail browser support growing? Chrome now in the mix.

    While this may not be anything entirely new, and it's quite possible that I somehow missed an official announcement somewhere at some point, the old requirement of Mobile Me's online web portal, having to use either IE, FF, or Safari, seems to finally be expanding. While those three browsers are a few of the most popular, they are by no means the only browsers in the world. I was however pleasantly surprised roughly 30 seconds ago when I went to check my Mobile Me mail forgetting I was using...
  • iPhone’s “Find My iPhone” super easy…..easily disabled that is.

    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...
  • 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...
  • Microsoft’s “MyPhone” registration now live…beta tag included!

    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 and....um....wait 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

    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...
  • Google opens up Address and Calendar push syncing to all mobile devices!

    Even the most devout MobileMe users will be questioning their decision come time to renew their subscription.  For $99 MobileMe isn't cheap.  But what it does, contact/calendar/bookmark/etc syncing is highly useful and invaluable.  Sure their are services that can get you to sync an address book here, mail there, and a calendar off in the distance way over beyond that ridge, but MobileMe just did everything in one place and for me anyway, "Just worked".  However, a new old player has com...
  • Microsoft’s “My Phone” makes an early debut
    by Mike
    Posted February 7th, 2009 at 10:50 am
    Microsoft is really trying hard these days to prove to people that they are innovative and cool.  They have been hyping up "the cloud" lately as the next frontier. Everything will be done in the cloud according to them.  Microsoft's "My Phone" service is an online syncing service to use between your phone and a password protected site.  Unfortunately for Microsoft, Engadget sprung the My Phone site early as Microsoft wasn't planning to announce My Phone until MWC in 10 days...oops.  Cats...
  • SkyBox > MobileMe?
    by Mike
    Posted January 19th, 2009 at 11:47 am
    If Microsoft's plans roll out smoothly with their "cloud" ideas, SkyBox could be greater than MobileMe.  Granted, MobileMe had a very rocky start, but issues aside, it is now fairly reliable and easy to use.  The "sky" titled services will be geared towards not only Windows devices, but many devices from different manufacturers.  It is Microsoft's attempt to bring in more users to the Windows world and emulate some of the "closeness" Apple markets with their many services.
