Sometimes it pays to stay up into the wee hours of the morning, watching Bounty with your sweetie. I came to check email during a popcorn break, and found a little surprise in my inbox.. Here is thew newest member of the webOS lineup – the Palm Pixi. It looks like the HTC Tattoo isn’t [...]
When I started this series, my hope had been to tackle all of the apps in the Palm Pre App Catalog before its official launch, later this month. But the developers turned out to be too fast for me. In the month since I started this series, the App Catalog has grown from 30 apps [...]
I have to admit that I have never been one to dabble to deep in the stock market. Most of my money is in IRAs or index based funds. Plus, I rarely want to have the values too close, because looking at how much money I am constantly losing can get a bit depressing these [...]
Let’s just get this out of the way quickly. Word Ace is my new favorite game, and is the best game currently available for the Palm Pre. OK…I know saying that any game is better than other games on the Palm Pre may not be much of a compliment…but this really is a fantastic game.
This is a pretty simple app, but one which could be quite useful to those folks who spend a lot of time in their cars, whether that means travelling long distances, or commuting into town each morning. This app lets you use your Palm Pre to track how many miles you are getting per gallon [...]
Yes…I do mean THAT Connect 4. The one you loved as a kid. sliding checkers into a plastic frame, trying to make four in a row. This is one of my son’s favorite games, and I love the fact that he is so interested in a game from my own childhood. And thanks to the [...]
Let’s have a show of hands. How many of you watch the Today Show in the morning. It is pretty hard to miss, since it is about five hours long, yet I manage to do so since I leave the house before 6:00 each morning. So, I rarely get to watch the show upon which [...]
I am pretty happily married, and have been since before dating sites like Match.com became all the rage. So, needless to say, I do not have an account at Match.com or any other similar sites. That being said, I can certainly see the value they might offer the modern connected single. In fact, my sister-in-law [...]
Ever since I graduated from college with a degree in Journalism, I have tried to keep track of which newspapers have the best writing. Consistently near the top of that list has been The New York Times (for the record, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, CNN, and the AP Newswire round out my personal top five). [...]
Tonight is Friday, which means it is the start of the Jewish holiday Shabbat, which is the Sabbath. It begins at sundown on Friday and runs through sundown on Saturday. Shabbat can be a very ritualistic holiday, with certain prayers and other activities which occur at specified times. Of course, since nothing can ever be [...]
It is like a shared ritual. We have all been there. Your friend, mother, mother-in-law, or another random visitor is coming into town for a visit. Your job is to meet them at the airport. Unless you live across the street from the airport, this requires an incredible feat of timing and coordination. Otherwise, your [...]
The folks at Zumobi are well known for the widgetized apps they have developed, primarily for Windows Mobile. So, I was pretty interested to find out what they had put together when I saw their name cropping up in the Palm Pre App Catalog. What I found was Sporting News Pro Baseball.
Windows Mobile 6.5 is coming this fall, and Windows Mobile 7 is coming in 2010. But is it too little, too late? According to Jack Gold in Businessweek, Microsoft should exit the smartphone market and cede the enterprise world to RIM. Microsoft has taken something of a beating in marketshare lately, but is it so [...]
Time to take a look at another game for the Palm Pre, Blackout. Sadly, this is number four of five. Like many of the other games available for the Pre, it is a good concept, but an underwhelming exhibition of what this platform can do.
