This Amazing Gadget Turns Motion Into Music

I wish I could see the look on the faces of musicians from 1,000 years ago if they could be brought to modern times to witness the AUUG.

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 […]

Inside Flipboard

Flipboard is, and always has been, one of my favorite iPad (and now iPhone) apps. It’s often imitated but never, ever duplicated. It’s not just a news reader, it’s an experience. Part of what I love is discovering new sites dug up by Flipboard’s curation team. The user experience and interface were game-changers and continue […]

MyCharge Peak, Sojourn and Voyage: Never Be Without Power Again

As I use my mobile devices more and more, it seems like my batteries last less and less. That’s why I’m keen on having a backup battery handy at all times whether I’m just in the office or on a trip. I’ve used a few different battery cases for my iPhone, but I’ve yet to […]

Undrip

Great social media content is constantly slipping through your fingers, leaking through the faulty pipes and infrastructure available to you to soak it all up. Undrip is a great new app that “stops that leaky faucet” and helps you capture the best of what your friends are sharing online. I love using Undrip; it’s now […]

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 […]

Apple Should Charge More for the iPhone, Not Less

Reports are surfacing today that Apple is considering a “low-cost” iPhone option for overseas markets like China (via DigiTimes and WSJ). Obviously, this is aimed at making more money by selling more iPhones in places where paying American-style prices for a smartphone just isn’t feasible for a large chunk of the population. I have a […]

The 5 Best Smart Watches of 2012

There are two reasons to wear a watch: fashion and function. Over the last 100 years, designers have been working furiously to create high-fashion watches but the function has basically remained the same: telling time.
