The day I got my new MacBook I immediately put a Speck SeeThru hard shell on it. At $49.95 it was expensive, but having now used it for a number of months, it was worth every penny. The case is clear, doesn’t add much thickness or weight and offers amazing protection for my MacBook. It [...]
So what do you do with an old Sony UX 280 handheld computer in a netbook era? Why give it to Jack Bauer to destroy, of course. That is, after it no longer could serve as a detonator for the nerve agent on tonight’s episode of 24.
No sooner did I post my piece on Frank Rich’s look at the current struggles facing the newspaper industry than I saw a piece from GottaBeMobile’s Warner Crocker that The New York Times Reader Version 2.0 had launched.
We were over my in-laws’ house for Mother’s Day, and I did something rather unusual — I actually read a newspaper… from newsprint! Here’s what happened… I saw these quaint bundles of paper sitting on the counter and inquired as to what they were. My father-in-law said they are called “newspapers” and that, in his [...]
I reviewed the Jabra a few months ago for whatsoniphone and have been using it ever since. I love the sleek design, the ease of pairing, and most of all, the fact that the call quality is AWESOME!!!! When I first did the review however, there was a significant feature that thanks to the iPhone’s [...]
I received a copy of RapidWeaver, a powerful Mac application for creating highly customizable websites using a variety of templates, as part of an application bundle last year. When I decided to redo a website I had long been unhappy with a few months back, I gave it a try and was impressed. I just [...]
I’ve been writing quite a bit about the Livescribe Pulse pen in recent days. It is a phenomenal device, and apparently there are many people who agree. I’ve received a number of private emails from people who have been using the pens or have just ordered them. (I’m pretty sure they’ll be happy the decision!) [...]
Earlier today I did a quick post on whatsoniphone about an article in Business Week regarding recent speculation that the next generation iPhone will bring on-the-go video recording in a big way. One sentence in the piece jumped out at me. It said, “Evidently, shooting video is as easy as it is with a Flip, [...]
Yesterday we posted on the two new video camera’s from Pure Digital. The new Flip Ultra and UltraHD. Today a review unit arrived. It is a definite step up from the Flip units I have used before, and yet it retains the small size, ease of use and reasonable price. Let’s take a look.
It is one thing to review an item and quite another to actually use it in the real world. As I wrote in my initial review earlier this week, I am thrilled by the Pulse pen from Livescribe and am finding it to be one of the most useful tech-tools I have ever used. My [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
At its best, technology integrates with the rest of our lives so completely that it is barely noticeable. And yet, were we to suddenly discover ourselves without it, we would quickly realize how much we have grown to depend on this gadget or that. Moreover, while unboxings and full reviews are exciting, it is often [...]
After using Google Voice on and off for the past few weeks and the new GV Mobile App on my iPhone for the last day, I’m pretty much ready to make the move to Google Voice full-time. There are a few reasons for this and the quality and speed of the iPhone app is one [...]
I ordered a Livescribe Pulse Smartpen a few weeks ago after seeing an ad for it. Having now used it for a few weeks I can honestly say that, other than my various Apple products, this may well be my favorite technology purchase ever. It certainly has all of the qualities necessary to stand out [...]
