With more and more chargers featuring USB ports, often times I wished I had a iPhone charge/sync cable with me so I could take advantage of these plugs and add a little juice to my iPhone. I have several chargers, both home and auto that feature USB ports allowing me to plug in any charging [...]
As Judie, Clinton and I put the finishing touches on a three-way review of the most impressive Windows Mobile 6.5 device today, the Russians have been busy trying to give us what Microsoft won’t: Windows Phone 7. Due to its button design falling outside the requirements of Windows Phone 7, the HD2 was destined to [...]
I discovered Zinio’s electronic magazines when I first started using Tablet PCs In the mid-00s. The company has been in existence for 10 years, so I was a fairly early user. I found that despite the Tablet PC’s relatively significant weight, short battery life and tendency to get hot, somethings VERY hot, the experience of [...]
Original Video- More videos at TinyPic Looks like some intrepid eBay sellers are taking advantage of ebook popularity. They’re repackaging old iPAQ PDAs and selling them as “eBook Readers”. While it sounds like a great deal (“Look! An eBook Reader for $60!), it’s really not.
Only a few days away from the iPad release, and we still have many questions and very few answers. It seems like nothing can happen in the ebook world without everyone wondering if Apple’s cannonball into the bookstore pool is going to be a tidal wave or a tiny ripple.
It has been a while since I reviewed a product form Digital Foci. I liked the Photosafe II and I decided, when offered, to check out their new product, the 8 inch Digital Photo Book.
Kobo Books was quick to announce they would have an iPad application out right away, and now they’re sharing more details. Their app looks an awful lot like iBooks and Aldiko, using a virtual bookshelf to show off book covers, but it seems like there’s some UI customization available, which is a nice touch. Amusingly, [...]
He who hesitates is lost…… Most of the free world is probably aware that Apple announced their newest device, the iPad, a few weeks ago. And most are also probably aware that the new device was available to pre-order on March 12th. Apple promised that if you ordered your WiFi iPad on March 12th they’d [...]
Although I live in Eldorado, which sits only a few counties away from the ever-creeping-towards-us edge of the Chihuahuan Desert, we have been enjoying the El Niño effect this year, which means a wetter spring than usual. In celebration of our recent (and hopefully continuing) monsoons, I’ve been sporting one of the most unique umbrellas [...]
We at Gear Diary have been following the shaky launch of the Toktumi iPhone application Line2. Yesterday, after being featured in the NY Times, it launched, was doing fine for a few hours, then totally lost service, then was pulled by the developer from the iTunes App. Store because of an apparent DOS attack. I [...]
This past week I did a review of Documents to Go Premium. I really like that product – it does a wonderful job of working with MS Office documents. But a lot but my main use of it is as a PDF reader – really a secondary function of that program. So when I saw [...]
I had to check the calendar to make sure it wasn’t April 1st when Dan forwarded a message from Case-Mate’s PR to me… Happy Friday! I know that you covered the case-mate Hug for the iPhone so I wanted to give you some news on its availability to consumers. Case-mate is proud to deliver innovative, [...]
The tough part of trying to look professional is finding the right bag. It’s especially difficult if you are a woman; do you carry a purse AND a briefcase? If you choose briefcase, do you grab a bag small enough to double as a purse, or do you keep a small bag in your desk [...]
Earlier today I had the opportunity to meet with Jeanniey Mullen, the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Zinio. I’ve been reading Zinio’s digital magazines for years going all the way back to my first Tablet PC. Most recently I was wowed when they unveiled their iPhone app. Using “out of the box” thinking they were [...]
