Dark Sky: an iPhone weather app you’ll want to use (review)

I’m a sucker for a great weather app which is why I’m glad I downloaded Dark Sky ($4). It’s unlike any other weather app on my iPhone. In fact, the default screen looks nothing like what I’ve come to expect from weather apps, which I really like. Hyperlocal weather forecasts This is a hyperlocal app. […]

Logitech Ultrathin for iPad Air review

It’s an absolute delight to be typing this review with the product I’m reviewing: the Logitech Ultrathin for iPad Air ($99). Is delight too strong of a word? Not even close. Let me start by saying that this Bluetooth keyboard is snappier and speedier than the actual Apple wireless keyboard when typing with my iPad. […]

OK, Google: Try Harder to Kill the iPhone

As an Apple fan, I love former Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s new guide for iPhone users who want to switch to Android. I miss the days when fans owned an Apple product for it’s coolness, not because they thought the product would make them appear cool. I miss the days when Apple wasn’t mainstream. As […]

Appboy: Improving Apps for Everyone

When I use an app, I want the experience to be as close to perfect as possible. I can’t stand it when I download an app and must immediately give it the stanky boot. If an app doesn’t work as I think it should (or as advertised) it is a failure. Often times I want […]

I’m Using An iPhone on T-Mobile – Am I Crazy?

A couple of weeks ago I did something I thought I would never do: I switched to T-Mobile. In the past, I always thought of T-Mobile as an ugly duckling carrier. An also-ran. I felt sorry for people on “that pink network.” Now I’m a T-Mobile convert. Here’s what happened. I had an old iPhone […]

Phablets Are Stupid (The Smaller The Better)

Phablets are stupid. I don’t like them. If I had my way, “the next big thing” would be small. Well, smaller than a Galaxy Note, for sure, and honestly, smaller than the Galaxy S4. Really, it would be about the size of the current iPhone (5c and 5s at the time of writing). It’s pretty […]

For The iOS7 Haters…

A lot of people dislike iOS 7. They can’t stand it. They are passionate about hating it. Even rabid Apple fans. I don’t quite get it, though I am trying to understand where they are coming from. Personally, I love iOS 7. To me, the obvious reason almost any non-designer, regular user doesn’t like iOS […]

iPad Air Smart Case Review

The bottom line: The iPad Air Smart Case excels as a stylish, lightweight and high-quality protective enclosure. It fails a little bit at being a stand. Since I ordered my iPad Air and the corresponding smart case ($79) from Apple the day they were first available, I’d imagine I am one of the first to […]

I Feel Like I’m Watching Apple Disintegrate (Update)

Update: Check out this article for more background info. It came to my attention today that Apple owns this patent that allows the Camera in my iPhone to be disabled. The exact language that bother me is “disable a function of the device.” Why? Let’s say I am at a concert or filming a police […]

Review: Day One Journal App Is Worth Downloading and Using

What do Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin all have in common? They all kept journals. Somehow journaling became a “girly” thing to do in recent years, but in reality it’s perfectly manly. While sites like Facebook will chronicle things in your life automatically for you, there is no replacement for a private repository […]
