It’s not every day that I get to unbox an $8000 mobile phone…oh heck, who am I trying to kid?! Up until a few days ago, I could honestly say that I had never unboxed any device that cost so much. But through a twisting series of events, starting with my friend (and fellow gadget [...]
I like sports games. I’ve tried the most of the current golf games currently available in the iTunes App. Store. Of them “Let’s Golf” is my favorite. However that all could change now that EA Sports has just released the next in their line up of much anticipated titles, Tiger Woods PGA Tour for the [...]
I tend to think of myself as an “on the go” type of guy with a sedentary lifestyle…not sure if that makes any sense to you but it does to me. I have some travel for work, coach high school baseball, volunteer with the local Board of Education, and have a 15-month old that we are [...]
I just got done watching a news conference with New York’s Mayor Bloomberg, who was giving his daily Swine Flu update. He struck a nice balance by calling on people to be cautious and responsible by washing hands more than ever, telling them to stay out of work or school if they suspect they might [...]

You can now send both DOCX and RTF files wirelessly to your Kindle and they’ll be converted automatically for viewing.

Going through my feeds, I came across this article about fantasy writer Peter Brett who wrote over 100,000 words of his epic novel, The Warded Man on an HP iPAQ 6515. I saw this initially on Crunchgear by the way. Can you imagine? I have a rough time tapping out a e-mail and could not [...]
[Note: This is a three-way, multi-site review. Chris Spera (italics), Clinton Fitch (bold), and Doug Goldring (plain text)have all teamed up to review Mobile Shell 3 together. It is being simultaneously posted on Gear Diary, and Just Another Mobile Monday.] It is hard to believe that it has been only a little over two years [...]
At first glance Dell Remote Access looks like any other remote access product on the market. You open a portal Page, my.dellremoteaccess.com, login and you will see a list of the devices on the same network as the computer running Dell Remote Access.
If you own a Samsung Epix, you’ve probably seen this message. The results are not fun: dropped connections, freezes, all manner of exciting crashes. Plus wondering what on earth a slog dump is and why it has forced itself onto your poor innocent phone.
The wait is over. The trilogy, complete. Chevy Camaro is back – and back in a big way. After a seven-year hiatus, the new Chevrolet Camaro has (finally) returned to dealer showrooms, and thanks to the good folks over at Freedom Chevrolet in Southwest Dallas, I was able to spend some quality time with the [...]
I suspect it comes as no surprise that those of us on GD who have an Amazon Kindle2 are big fans. At last count there were five of us from the site who have, use and rave about them. We love the portability, the exceptional battery life, the Whispernet for immediately downloading books and other [...]

It was just a few weeks ago Jessica was writing about the excellent Stanza ebook reader for the iPhone. Today the New York Times is reporting that Amazon has bought out Lexcycle, the makers of the application. According to the article: Seeking to strengthen its presence on the iPhone and iPod Touch, Amazon has acquired [...]
Over a year ago, whilst working feverishly on an overdue college paper, I spilled a large glass of water over my laptop. Cue panic attack as the MacBook Pro sizzled. I had a backup of that document on my Fujitsu tablet, but it was several days old, and so was the previous SuperDuper backup of [...]
This set of quirky salt and pepper dispensers is sure to cause some dinner conversation. I know in my house both my kids would keep grinding (and grinding) until they had a plate full of salt and pepper. The red topped cube holds pepper and the white top cube is salt. And because dinner is [...]
