It has taken a good few days, too many as far as we’re concerned, to see any real movement regarding the release of new or updated apps that make use of Apple’s new Push Technology. Word is Apple was taking its time to make sure their servers could handle the sudden demand the system will [...]
The net is abuzz with the news that Apple moved over 1 million 3G S handsets. That’s impressive, but it is only part of the story. Here’s why… Here’s a link to the original Press Release.
I’ve been on top of KindleGate most of the afternoon. It took speaking with three MORE customer reps today, plus the one yesterday, to finally get accurate, or what I hope is accurate, information. This sordid tale began last night when I was setting up my iPhone 3G S, and a book I went to [...]
I love technology and gadgetry. Even though I’m in a field that isn’t normally associated with such things I can’t get enough of it. For the longest time I thought that my interest had to do with my maturity level which, as my wife will tell you, can be rather low. A while back, however, [...]
I love my Amazon Kindle. I love reading with it, I love how light it is, and I love the battery life. I also love the fact that it automatically syncs with the Amazon Kindle application on my iPhone and iPod touch. That means any book will open to the last page read regardless of [...]
New iPhones are reaching customers throughout the world today. People are excitedly opening the boxes, putting away their old iPhone’s (or dropping them on the ground) and hurrying to set up activate their “Zippier” phones. Unfortunately, it’s “déjà vu all over again” as many, including myself, are having problems activating the darn things.
Yesterday Mitchell posted a first look at his new 13″ MacBook Pro. In his terrific overview he showed a few pictures of his swapping out the installed drive for a mammoth 500GB drive. As luck would have it the 120GB Solid State Drive I ordered from NewEgg earlier in the week arrived while I was [...]
Travis got his iPhone 3G S at the Apple Store this morning, and Larry’s iPhone arrived at his home home a bit ago. I’m still waiting. Larry has unboxed his on camera for your viewing pleasure. (Hint: Pay special attention to the gentle way Larry treats his iPhone 3G, now that it has been left [...]
Below You’ll find an account of Travis’ experience this morning but here you’ll find the first iPhone 3G S-shot Gear Diary Video. (We will assume someone else was driving… right?)
Well, OS 3.0 landed yesterday, and we’ve been like kids in a candy shop. The were lots of upgrades taking place around the GD community and some of the stream of “Wow, take a look at this!” can be found in our 3.0 Tidbits Post. Now that the smoke has cleared (ha, get it, smoke [...]
Google Voice is amazing! Through its integrated voice mail transcription, ability to assign unique messages to various groups, to its control of ringing multiple phone numbers at one time, it has already begun to transform the way I use my phone. It has also been a source of frustration for many since it has only [...]
AT&T, the telecom that never misses an opportunity to step in it, has made a rather surprising move in an attempt to appease the growing discontent among their iPhone 3G users. As you surely know by now, many who purchased an iPhone 3G last summer were enraged that AT&T was actually going to hold them [...]
You’ve got to feel badly for some developers. Sometime today their hard work will become all but irrelevant. The vision they had that enabled them to find workarounds to some of Apple’s self-imposed iPhone limits will suddenly come to naught. iPhone OS 3.0 means these applications are largely, or in some cases entirely, redundant. I [...]
Here’s a quick video of an iPhone 3G S in the wild, thanks to a Brazilian Portuguese website. Nothing too surprising here but it IS nice to see the landscape keyboard, video recorder, voice recorder, auto-focus camera, increased speed, fingerprint-proof screen, voice over, voice dial/control etc. Oh, who am I kidding… this thing looks AWESOME [...]
Well, we’re just a few hours away from the formal release of iPhone OS 3.0. I for one couldn’t be more excited as it means that, once again, our iPhones and iPod touches are about to be transformed into something largely new. It also means that we’ll be seeing a host of new applications and [...]
