    Well well well. That gloriously tasty looking TweetDeck Android app we talked about yesterday has found one of its early builds leaked (Download here). Based off of an early pre-review by Android Central, they note the app's nicely styled UI, but knock it for it's "waterfall approach" to grouping multiple account updates in one column. (Mind you, @username updates and DM's are separate. Multiple accounts' status updates such as Twitter, Facebook, Buzz, etc. are grouped clear up...
  • Nimbuzz 2.0 for Android released. NimbuzzOut, better Facebook integration, and more user customization!

    I've found myself hovering back and forth between eBuddy and Nmbuzz for my multi-IM needs over the last few months. While I preferred Nimbuzz both for it's UI and overall feel, constant drop outs especially on Facebook were a pain. eBuddy on the other hand doesn't have these problems, but it isn't exactly the most beautiful app to look at either. Perhaps Nimbuzz 2.0 can help me with my dilemma, hmm? Fresh off the shelf, Nimbuzz 2.0 brings some pretty big enhancements that cater to a wide v...
  • iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 2G no longer receiving Apple’s Game Center. Yanked from iOS 4.1 beta 3.

    Mobile gamers and Apple fans hoping to hold on just a little longer with their older hardware have a new decision to make -- Old hardware or Game Center. The latest iOS 4.1 beta 3 has removed the highly publicized mobile gaming feature from iPhone 3G and iPod 2G devices. Given the fairly vocal outpouring of consumer complaints citing poor iOS4 performance on said hardware, it isn't too hard to understand why the decision was made to ax it completely. Even then, it's still a blow to plenty of ...
  • Android finally getting a respectable, functional, and good looking multi-chat client. Helloooo Trillian!
    by Mike

    For me, consolidation is key. I've tried Nimbuzz and eBuddy in efforts to do away with using Google Talk and a multi-chat client for my other accounts. I simply prefer the stock Google Talk app for Google's service, and a multi-chat client for everything else. But with Trillian, it looks like I can finally drop down to a single app. Besides looking great functionality-wise, from the screenshots above we can see that Trillian is quite the looker too! A robust Android app that performs well ...
  • The Facebook Like Stamp: Approving physical goods since 2010.
    by Mike
    Posted June 14th, 2010 at 6:30 am
    How much do you really like something? Enough to put a physical stamp of approval on it? Have no fear, the Facebook Like Stamp is here to save your day. Unfortunately, "Nation", the people who are actually using this little digital/physical gem aren't currently producing the FB Like Stamp for public consumption. So here's how you fix that: Instead of writing your local/state/federal politician (seeing as how they never listen to "the voice of the people anyway") take that energy and put ...
  • Twitter set to make big changes to short links, hyperlinks, and character count.
    by Mike
    Posted June 8th, 2010 at 8:09 pm
    If there was thing that always bugged me about Twitter, it was that damn 140-character limit. Yeah, I totally get the point of short and to the point messages, but when trying to share information via hyperlinks, most if not all of many tweets would have their character allotment accounted for before the user could even get in a few letters. Not anymore! Twitter is changing the way links count towards character limit. But that's not all... (more...)...
  • [Update] And it gets worse: AT&T is not going to allow iPhone-to-iPad tethering. Apple influencing decision?
    by Mike
    Posted June 3rd, 2010 at 6:02 pm
    Sweet Jesus. Just when I thought AT&T; couldn't be any more ridiculous, more absurd, more asinine; they go and do something like announcing that iPhone-to-iPad tethering will not be allowed. After a TechFlash reader by the name of Steve Ruebel brought up the topic of tethering an iPad to an iPhone, an AT&T; spokesperson replied to TechFlash directly by email after seeing the comment and receiving similar emails from TechFlash themselves stating that it was in fact true. The reason the AT&T...;
  • Integrated Facebook (more social networking?) coming to iPhone 4.0
    by Mike
    Posted April 19th, 2010 at 9:57 am
    Feast your eyes above. It may not seem like much, and to many looks like a bunch of nonsense. But the real meat of it is this: iPhone 4.0 will finally support socially aware contacts and calenders. By the looks of the .plist references above, Facebook is the only one to make the cut for now. Hopefully more services are welcomed inward. Because as popular as Facebook is, there are plenty of other services I would want to sync up with my contacts/calenders as well. Excited? Care less?...
  • Twitter close to revealing new layout?
    by Mike
    Posted April 9th, 2010 at 4:09 pm
    Since Twitter's inception, the main profile page hasn't really changed. Conversely, other aspects of the popular micro-blogging site like the login page have. On top of physical looks, numerous actual features have been added, with the more recent (and prominent) one being geo-tagging. A new posting on Dribble by Twitter's lead designer, Doug Bowman, shows what is a fairly revamped UI -- and a nice one at that I will add. It has that typical Mac-like styling I think. You know, the mu...
  • Waze for iPhone updated — Personalized alternative routes & scoreboards now live!
    by Mike
    Posted February 17th, 2010 at 7:28 am
    We've covered Waze in the past for it's simple use, nicely done UI, and robust + active user community which makes the user generated GPS application and service a joy to use. If you find your daily commute boring and unlively, I promise that after "Wazing" even one of your trips, you'll be hooked. Dan from Waze just hit me up with another mail alerting me to a freshly released iPhone update that adds in two big features that should keep hooked users even deeper and newcomers intrigued. Pers...
  • This will make you feel old: Facebook turns 6 today!
    by Mike
    Posted February 4th, 2010 at 8:37 am
    Where were you and what were you doing 6 years ago? I can tell you that for Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes, February 4th 2004 was the start of an entirely new life. Back when Facebook (originally "thefacebook) was launched, MySpace was in it's hayday. People were signing up and logging into MySpace left and right, and Full HD 1080p was a rare novelty. (Gee, what a difference a few years makes huh?) Over the last 6 years, Facebook has expanded exponen...
