    Being on the mobile web just a few short years ago meant navigating extremely rudimentary WAP web pages and dealing with painfully slow load times. That is if you could even get a site to properly/completely load on your device. Thankfully technology doesn't sit still and in fact runs a breakneck speed. In today's world, we have browsers such as Mobile Safari, Mobile Chrome, SkyFire, and Opera mini to name a few. While all of the mobile browsers listed (and several unlisted) are all good in ...

    When consumers have to take fair use matters into their own hands, things can often get complicated and messy.  Much hoop jumping and settings changes are often required leaving the goal being sought one for only the more tech literate.  In regards to tethering iPhone OS 3.0, especially in places where there isn't any support at all, let alone a paid solution, users now have a quick and free option.  Instead of the older methods that have beena round for awhile that involve some file mana...
  • iPhone OS 3.0 sorta kinda allows background music streaming

    Now before you sell your background capable smartphone, put on a cape, and try to jump off the roof, you may want to first know that it isn't true background processing still.  It isn't like you can open an app such as Pandora, get the digital bits flowing and then back out of it expecting to still hear your streaming audio goodness in the background.  That still won't fly.  However, thanks to mobile Safari's latest updates and support for HTTP streaming audio and video.  So what exactly...

    While the iPhone's Mobile Safari web browser and Opera mobile have been jockeying the numero uno position since '09 started, the latest results are in showing that Opera has once again surpassed the iPhone in mobile web browsing market share.  The reason?  Who knows the real reason, other than Opera saw a sharp increase in web usage, accounting for a 24.6% share of the mobile web market.  The iPhone on the other hand fell to 17.9%.  Such statistics may be boring to look at but show that wh...
  • Microsoft bringing the heat - Laptop Hunter ads now showing on an iPhone near you

    Microsoft as of late has been really pushing the whole "value" mentality when comparing Windows boxes to Apple powered ones. More or less, the gist of Microsoft's latest "Laptop Hunter" ads were that Microsoft is more affordable and gives you more for less. They portray Apple computers as overpriced with the consumer paying a premium for a simple fruit logo on the machine. Microsoft while still very much having a majority of the computer market by user base percentage isn't lying down and i...

  • Palm Pre browser 4x faster than iPhone…Apple fanboys cry out in horror

    I would consider myself borderline fanboy so my eyes and ears were perked when I saw this.  According to a video posted on JKon the Ron, the Palm Pre is shown on video loading in 7 seconds.  What's the big deal you ask.  Only that an iPhone running over WiFi took over 30 seconds to load the same javascript and graphics heavy site!  Uh-oh.  I hope Apple has some big Safari update to announce at tomorrows event.  Because if they don't, the mobile internet that Apple claim...
  • Forget flash, iPhone will display animation and 3D using CSS and Webkit

    Flash is the latest craze these days.  The iPhone, among others are constantly knocked for not including flash.  The few phones that brag of their flash content don't do all that well in handling it because flash isn't built for mobile browsers.  This means that often flash content won't scale appropriately as well choppy playback because flash is pretty CPU intensive.   There is another option.  Animation and 3D support in CSS!  And guess what, the iPhone and iPod touch already have i...
