  • If iPad can, iPhone can too: Landscape springboard officially coming to iPhone 4.0?
    by Mike
    Posted April 25th, 2010 at 12:49 am
    iPhone users/hopefuls: Think of a few of the "must have" features you'd like to see in iPhone OS 4.0 when it is finally given the final seal of approval and shipped out. Is it the multitasking? Perhaps more RAM? Let's not forget the more rugged physical appearance. Or could it be something as simple as a landscape springboard? (more...)...
  • Free turn-by-turn navigation coming to iPhone “and friends”. [Google]

    The GPS industry has already had a handful in recent months with Google's completely free and generally completely awesome mobile navigation/turn-by-turn mobile app that debuted on the Android platform. But the Goog's has plenty more to dish out as they are planning on releasing Google Navigation for iPhone "and plenty of other mobile platforms", they announced today at a London Tech conference.

  • Apple doesn’t like teaching kids how to program or furthering the general progress of technology. [App Store Reject]
    by Mike

    Time and time again we have seen Apple employ utter incompetence, double standards, and plain stupidity when it comes to accept/reject decisions within their approval process. They've received their fair share of criticism and at times, warranted a few pats on the back along the way. Sadly, incompetence still runs wild as the recent rejection (and eventually approved) of Pulitzer prize winner Mark Fiore's comic satire app showed us. But more disturbing than simple incompetence and stupidity i...
  • iPhone 3G jailbroken, stuffed with OS 4.0, and hacked to multitask. Justice is served.

    We all know Apple (as well as countless other manufacturers) purposely limit current gen products from adopting too many features of newer gen products. In Apple's case, the iPhone is one of the most fitting examples of this. While it's nice that you have a solid two years of updates with your iPhone, at some point it's going to start dropping off the radar. With iPhone OS 4.0, the original EDGE iPhone is kicked to the curb and the iPhone 3G starting to get the cold shoulder. At least for iP...
  • You don’t go to the store and buy a new computer with Windows 2000. Why do it with your smartphone? [Android fragmentation]

    I could point this post in th direction of the Twist and how it in and of itself is a lower-end cellphone, but really, it's probably going to end up something like "Fragmentation is killing Android". Well, the truth shall set you free they say. So here goes nothin'... (more...)...
  • Would you want to see HTC pick up Palm?
    by Mike
    Posted April 13th, 2010 at 3:04 pm
    With as promising as webOS looked early last year, it's truly disappointing to see something with so much potential languish due to poor managerial choices and outright disgusting hardware. HTC on the other hand is a master at beautifying the ugly. While webOS itself isn't ugly and in fact quite the head turner, would a company as successful as HTC benefit from picking up Palm -- a company, or more importantly mobile OS with plenty of potential with a simple lack of direction?

  • The 24″ screened GameBoy
    by Mike
    Posted April 13th, 2010 at 7:30 am
    If there was ever one thing about the GameBoys of years past that I'd have to find fault with, it would be the tiny screen. Ya, larger LCD screens at that time were cost prohibitive. But come on. Is another inch or two too much to ask for? Times have changed for the better and now we can have any size screen we want for relatively little cash... (more...)...
  • Opera Mini approved, now available in App Store
    by Mike

    For those who thought Apple lacked common sense and was destined to ruining the App Store one useless rejection at a time, good news. Apple has approved Opera Mini for the iPhone! Coming from the BlackBerry world, I used to live by Opera Mini. It saved my sanity many times. On the iPhone, Mobile Safari is actually an amazing browser to begin with, so the immediate benefits aren't as pronounced. Even still, Opera Mini iPhone Edition is a great addition to any iPhone. Personally, I think i...
  • El Jobso on blocking out Flash from iPhone platform: “We’ve been there before…sub-par results”
    by Mike
    Posted April 12th, 2010 at 9:34 am
    It's no secret that Steve Jobs hates Flash and isn't exactly drinking buddies with Adobe's finest developers. The once subtle, behind the scenes battle between Apple and Adobe has of late, erupted into an all out war with both sides. Name calling, finger pointing, and all out "he said she said" tactics have been resorted to. Jobs has gone on the record several times citing his distaste for Flash in general. But a new comment over the recent changes in the iPhone developers policy concerning...
  • Twitter buys Tweetie. Set to relaunch as “Twitter for iPhone”, become free! [Twitter]
    by Mike
    Posted April 9th, 2010 at 10:04 pm
    Right about now I can honestly say it would be nice to be Loren Brichter. Why? Loren is the person behind Tweetie, a widly popular (and downright sexy) Twitter app for both OS X and iPhone. After countless favorable reviews and rewards, all that hard work is paying off. Earlier this evening, Twitter announced that they bought Tweetie, are going to rename it "Twitter for iPhone" -- the official Twitter app -- and knock the price down from $2.99, to free. That's quite a bit to take in, and be...
