For the last few months, something in the back of my head has been nagging at me. I keep trying to swat it, but it comes back over and over again. It’s the same kind of feeling you get when your brain is trying to tell you something but you refuse to listen to it […]

A few days ago I started working on some classic videogame iPhone wallpapers which have gotten thousands of views after I posted them and were mentioned on the AppSlappy podcast. I wanted to write a bit about how I put them together. The iPhone’s screen is 320×480 and has two tall banners on its home […]

Tweetdeck comes to the iPhone

Until now, the best iPhone application for handling multiple accounts has been Tweetie. It’s a terrific app, organizing your accounts into multiple pages so that they don’t interfere with each other. Not only is it good at handling multiple accounts, it’s a very good and intuitive iPhone Twitter application. Just a few minutes ago, Tweetdeck […]

Last week I bought my wife her first iPhone. Despite the fact she seemed less than enthusiastic about it, she’s been doing a good job at learning how to use it. One thing I noticed was that she’s been using the Calendar app to remind herself about things. I got the idea of figuring out […]

At the crack of midnight, iPhone geeks on the east coast of the United States got their first crack at Skype’s official app for the iPhone. If you don’t know, Skype allows voice calls over the internet without having to use an actual telephone, the audio is transferred over the internet (voice over IP, or […]

NBC/Universal shows their spiteful side

NBC/Universal shows their spiteful side

According to PC World this morning, NBC/Universal has moved to the Zune platform after abandoning Apple’s iTunes Store, the most successful online digital retailer in the world. I generally don’t post profanity on here, but WTF? I just don’t get it. Not only is the Zune a complete joke (it doesn’t even have a clock), […]

A week ago, Apple introduced the iPhone SDK to us mere mortals. It was a wonderful gesture by Apple to allow us to write apps for one of the best phones ever made. However, the SDK’s limitations and other issues are killing my enthusiasm for developing for it. The $99 entry fee doesn’t bother me. […]

For love of Entourage

For love of Entourage

I love Entourage. For those of you that don’t know what it is, it’s the Mac version of Outlook. I love the app to death, and I’ve used it for years. The problem is that it’s starting to show its age, even though it’s been rock solid for me, even when using the old PPC […]

Sorry, you can’t watch that in HD

Yesterday, Apple announced that it will have HD movies for rent. What they didn’t tell you directly was that you needed an Apple TV in order to watch the HD rentals. They made it sound like you could watch the HD rentals on your computer through iTunes, but that’s not the case. Buried deep in […]
