    Geeks and nerds love new shiny shinies to get all excited over.  It seems that the more a gadget has crammed under the hood or the sleeker it looks directly rrepresents a "likability" factor and that all things that appear old, that is, gadgets with blocky, ancient looking features, are undesirable and ready for the trash bin.  However, the trusty 'ol Commodore 64 has one more trick up its sleeve, which thanks to Johan Van den Brande, a Belgian engineer, new things are again possible on ol...

    While the mood at WWDC after the sad and unfortunate news of AT&T dropping the ball twice in regards to iPhone OS 3.0 and the iPhone 3G S, what is surprising is the continuing public outcry over their crappy service.  While you and I know how sucky they really are, the fact that more and more people of the not so techie crowd are getting in on this anti-AT&T rhetoric is pretty astounding.  As the picture above shows, there are clearly some peeved people floating around the interweb...

    If you would have to throw out a half hazard guess as to the ratio between Twitter activity and actual contributing users was, forgetting the title, what would you say? 50/50? 40/60? 30/70 at worst? If you guessed any of those ratios you were wrong. In a Harvard Business Review, a troubling Twitter fact came to light - of all the Twitter activity that goes on each and every day, a paltry 10% of users are responsible for creating and tweeting 90% of that content. Seems as if Twitter has a...

    Microsoft's E3 keynote kicked off today with many new and exciting announcements. Obviously since E3 is a gaming trade show, the Xbox 360, Xbox Live, Live Marketplace, and even the Zune were the talk of the town - a sort of "Macworld" for Microsoft junkies where gaming geeks from all walks of life convene to take in, look at, touch, and prod the latest and greatest on the gaming frontier. So what did Microsoft bring to E3 to wow customers? The full list is inside (sans pictures and straig...

    Twitter is again making headlines. This time for the insane amount of Pre app store applications from developers who are asking to create Twitter apps for the Pre.

In the case of the Pre and the increasing number of potential Twitter apps, according to Palm developer community manager Chuq Von Rospach, the list of Twitter applications is now past 400 now. With so many Twitter apps could one hypothesize that the Twitter/...

    Posted May 22nd, 2009 at 9:02 am
    Twitter's success and popularity are hard to deny and escape. It seems the world, well, the U.S. at least is entranced by this once tiny micro-blogging service that has in a very short amount of time exploaded into a national phenomenon. Twitter is chaning the way we speak so much so in the future people might even start speaking like tweets in public. Twitter has consumed so much media attention and garned so much press, it is almost hard to think of how we ever lived without Twitter. But...

    Twitter has enjoyed countless articles over the last couple of months fueled not only by media attention brought on by the infamous Kutcher vs. CNN race to 1 million followers, but also by the increase in various companies who are keeping a watchful eye on Twitter as it grows, hoping for a potential take over of a company that has a lot going for it. But, as with all things that enjoy a quick jaunt to the top, their are bound to be some bad rungs along the way. How bad? involves a...
