If you have the need for a lot of sounds on your iPhone or iPod Touch – then 5,000 sounds is for you. This is one gigantic collection of actual sound clips (so far as I can see nothing’s synthesized). While the obligatory flatulence and belches are included – there’s lots more to be had [...]
I’ve been playing with the new Kindle app for iPhone. For the record, I do NOT own a Kindle and don’t plan to buy one until they offer a color screen. When I read about the app availability earlier today, I took a look at it’s description on the app store. I realized there was [...]
Some people are just born lucky. Take John Hyde from Tipton Tennessee . He was minding his own business at the dump when suddenly and without warning his BlackBerry 8830 fell off his belt. He didn’t notice until he was home. By then he figured all was lost and he’d be stuck kicking in the [...]
There have been two activities that have become the norm across the world of technology blogging in the last couple of years: unboxing, and loading Mac OS X onto netbooks. As a person who is lucky enough to have the opportunity to play with lots of phones, notebooks and other “unboxable” items, I’ve done the [...]
There are many reasons to like the Nokia N85, but the one thing that has blown my hair back and made me truly appreciate this talented little device is something I had never before seen in a mobile phone…an FM transmitter*. And not just any weak wannabe transmitter, I’m talking about one that is just [...]
Traverse, the name chosen for General Motor’s latest new people mover, refers to the verb and not the city in upstate Michigan where many of these vehicles will undoubtedly be headed each summer.
About 2 months ago, I reviewed the Samsung Epix for Gear Diary. At the time, I really liked the device. I still do, but the romance is starting to wane a bit. Here’s why… I am having a really weird experience with the device. Every so often, the sound will completely cut out, regardless of [...]
On a whim I ordered this Febreze Odor Removal Appliance from Amazon for $22. My kitchen always has this “interesting” assortment of (burnt) smells and I was hopeful that the Febreze would do more than pump out a scent to mask odors.
The Amazon Kindle is now available for iPhone. No real advance notice in this one other than the slides that Amazon used during the Kindle 2 press conference indicating that the ebook reader would be available on other mobile devices. I set it up on my iPhone in under 30 seconds. Downloaded a book from [...]
The Apple Store is down. That generally means two things: 1. There will be new products/updated products (iMac, Mac mini, Time Capsule, Airport Express seem to be leading rumor candidates) 2. The older versions of the products getting an update will often enjoy great discounts in the refurbished area of Apple’s online store. I’m guessing [...]
According a new report today, the much awaited but never held Palm Pre is going to take some more time to come to market. The Palm Pre, announced at CES to much drooling but no hands on opportunities, may yet go down in history as the phone that either saved or sank two companies simultaneously. [...]
I’m one of those people who can’t make a straight cut for anything. These laser guided scissors are affordable (only $15) and guarantee that you’ll at least have a straight line to follow. Useful for cutting all types of things where you may not want to use a ruler and make a mark to draw [...]
Hawking has been around a while, and while most laptops have built in WiFi, they may not have Draft N or 802.11N. You may also have a desktop without WiFi that you want a Internet connection on without using Ethernet; this may fit the bill.
A few days ago I ranted about my belief that take home School Science Projects should be banned. I’m not altogether against them – it’s just that as a parent of two 9 year olds my experience is that most projects are a test of the parent’s ability to teach their kids how to do [...]
The Boost Mobile site now displays the long awaited Motorola i9 as ready for sale. For the pretty penny price of $299 (remember though – no contract required!) you’re getting a Motorola Stature i9 complete with 3.1 megapixel camera, 8x zoom, flash, Stereo Bluetooth, microSD card support (up to 8GB), GPS. Perhaps the best thing [...]
