This morning I almost missed my train because my alarm didn’t wake me up. But why? I had the alarm set, and I didn’t have my Treo on silent, so why did I wake up just in time to throw on clothes and run out the door?

His device arrived at the office a few days ago, but he is in Vietnam for work, so one of his colleagues dropped it off. For the last 3 days I have been using it instead of my Treo, to

I�ve been a long-time fan of their suite of products including SplashPhoto, SplashID, SplashWallet and SplashShopper, so my expectations were high for this new product.

RC (radio controlled) vehicles are a very cool thing. I have owned many ready to drive RC cars, big ones to the tiny micro ones. Those RC cars are lots of fun, but when you’ve got an RC vehicle that can fly… it is an extreme world of difference, being much more cool and more fun.

Fingerprints and face grease are a fact of life when using a mobile phone; and unless you are a fan of cloudy screens, you probably spend quite a bit of time wiping yours with a shirt tail or microfiber cloth. As well as that may usually work, nothing can really take the place of a good cleaning. But what’s theRead more

Joe from bookofjoe just emailed me with his solution for those that want a minimalistic, cheap, light, and what he considers to be the “best” money clip.

“Dear Frustrated Windows User,
Want to make my blood boil? Just tell me that someday, in the not-too-distant future, my refrigerator will include a computer that alerts me when I’m low on milk.

Recently a friend of mine swapped phones. During the process, he mentioned that he wasn’t aware of any way to back up all of the SMS messages he had been saving. I was stumped, too.
