    Back when the whole Twitter thing exploded, I wasn't exactly interested. It wasn't until I started Gadgetsteria late in 2008 that I truly realized how helpful Twitter could be. Since then I've been through a BlackBerry, iPhone, and currently have a Droid. Along the way, I've sought out the best Twitter apps for each respective platform as one bad Twitter app can certainly put a damper on the whole experience. Now that I'm on Android, I'll admit that the Twitter offerings compared to iPho...

    While the tweeting Kegerator is a clever, geeky way to interact with a chilled brew, other even more interactive possibilities exist for Twitter. Moving away from actual consumption, how about controlling something via Twitter? I bring you the "Tweet Tree". This clever combination of old and new employs Twitter as the means to let ordinary citizens such as you and I to control a Christmas tree's lights from anywhere in the world. Built upon a relatively cheap $35 web platform, making yo...
  • Tweeting your team’s victory a wee bit early — $7,500 fine, thank you.

    Of all the things an organization shouldn't be these days is that of a technologically deficient and incompetent organization. The NBA apparently wants to milk TV/network deals for all their worth while simultaneously ensuring they further remove value and "closeness" from the fans the so desperately seek. Continue on... A few months back, the NBA issued a statement saying that all social networking done by players, coaches, team members, etc., was to be done only after all official news in...
  • A bunch of Iranian wacko extremists who butcher the English language “take control” of Twitter.

    Unless you live at 120 Rock Ln., you've no doubt heard about Twitter's "hijack" at least twice this morning. Late last night a group claiming to be the "Iranian Cyber Army" exploited a hole in security around Twitter's DNS records which led to the events that unfolded. The events of course weren't anything too sinister -- a simple picture and some propaganda jargon saying we're the best you're not. Really deep stuff. I should be more worried but I find myself more cynical than ever, though n...
  • 2-year old falls in pool. Mom calls 911, sends a tweet. Followers rake her over the coals.

    Would you consider yourself sympathetic and caring or would you label yourself a tad differently? Differently as in cynical and less compassionate? Think about that as you read this. A story running in Florida Today about a socially apt mother and the tragedy that has befallen her. Sometime between @military_mom's tweet at 5:22pm and 5:38pm, her 2-year old son fell into the pool. Authorities identified her phone call to 911 at 5:38pm. At 6:11pm the woman -- Shellie Ross -- updated her Tw...
  • Zune Twitter app goes the China/Apple-net-nanny route. Censorship now standard! [Update]

    Posted December 17th, 2009 at 8:27 am
    **Update: Microsoft pushed out an update for the Zune Twitter app. It's f****** fucking great. Get it while it's hot! Oh joy. Don't you love it when some company, software developer, or hardware manufacturer decides what is and isn't suitable for your senses to consume? I know I sure do. Mmmmm censorship and net nannies how I love thee. /sarcasm Blatant sarcasm aside, having the Zune team tackle the whole net nanny is rather disappointing. Kids may see vulgar content in live, user...

    Interested in genealogy and observing how traits and characteristics are passed down from generation to generation? Things such as build, eye color, skin tone, etc. are the most obvious shared traits. As the world becomes increasingly digital however, we should start noticing within the next couple of decades "digital traits" passed along. Not sure what I mean? A perfect example of "building" such traits into your children and starting your kids young so that they're technologically fluent ...

    Think you have a case of the social networking bug digging deep down inside of you? There's one simple way to find out. Would you tweet or update your Facebook status when getting married...at the alter...in front of everyone? Just how social are you -- more social than Dana Hanna (the guy) in the video above?

    Twitter has reshaped communication in recent years in that it brought the extremely fast communication method of texting and opened it up to the world. Now faster than ever, ideas and thoughts can be shared with not just a few, but the whole world. What once was a small community of geeks and nerds trading 140 character or less messages back and forth has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon with people of all ages and lifestyles picking up Twitter as an effective means to communicate. All w...
  • Twidroid 3.0 for Android coming early December

    Posted November 24th, 2009 at 8:11 am
    Even though I wasn't initially enamored with Twitter, I have come around in the last year. While I'm still by no means a twit-a-holic, I do find myself spending more and more time on the popular micro-blogging network. Since I jumped ship from my iPhone to the Android platform, I've been looking far and wide for a comparable Twitter client. Twidroid has generally been crowned the top Android Twitter app, though unfortunately isn't even close to Tweetie 2 for the iPhone. Now I'm not saying th...
  • “Touiteur” the best looking Twitter app for Android!
    by Mike
    Posted November 21st, 2009 at 11:51 am
    One of the few faults I have with the Android platform is the lack of killer apps and polished apps. But one app by Levelup Studios called "Touiteur" looks like it will finally bring awesome functionality and eye candy. Ok, I'll admit that this app does take some iPhone-esque styling cues. Even still, I'm definitely buying this app as soon as it becomes available. So after watching the vid, can we all agree that it's easily the most functional and best looking Twitter app for Android? I'd e...
  • Looking for ways to tweet? Mount a coffee cup to your car roof…

    I don't know about you, but when I see a clever usage of Twitter whether it's a tweeting beer keg or a tweeting cat, I find myself smiling and realizing the overall joys in life are small, nerdy, and just plain innovative. Innovative isn't what some would call "GitEmSteveDave's" crazy Coffee-on-a-car contraption with other honorable mentions being "dumb", "stupid", "retarded", etc. I have a sense of humor and practice using it every day. It appears Steve has one too as the picture above shows...
