Siri

With the launch of the new iPhone 4S last week, Apple introduced an intelligent personal assistant named Siri. Apple acquired the company, Siri, in April of last year and has since been integrating their software into iOS. Siri uses advanced natural language processing to assist with making phone calls, scheduling meetings, sending messages, or simply […]

Streaming Music with Spotify

Spotify announced this week that it’s finally coming to the US. The streaming music service has been hugely popular in Europe since it started in late 2008, but presumably the record label deals have kept it from reaching the US… until now! Spotify offers three plans: Free, Unlimited, and Premium. The service is currently invite-only […]

Looking Back: iPhone Home Screens

While working on my blog this weekend, I stumbled upon the archives and started to read through some of my old posts. I found a screenshot of my iPhone home screen from August 2008. It’s fascinating to see the apps I was using back then and see how my “top apps” have changed over time. […]

Staying In The Loop: Feed Readers

Often the lunch conversation at work turns to books. Many of my coworkers are avid readers. I, on the other hand, NEVER read books! I can’t remember the last time I’ve read an actual book. I spend most of my “reading time” reading blog post after blog post on a quest to learn as much […]

Have You Heard Of Dropbox?

I’ve been hearing a lot lately about an application called Dropbox. It has been receiving a lot of hype this week and Twitter has been gushing about how great it is. This evening I decided to check it out and see what all the fuss was about. WOW. I’m going to try to finish this […]

Google Sync for iPhone = MobileMe Killer

Like every good Apple fanboy, I signed up for Apple’s MobileMe service when it became available in July 2008 alongside the launch of the iPhone 3G. MobileMe is a rebranding of Apple’s .Mac service that has been around for 7 years. The new service promised some cool features and most importantly, “push” email, contacts, and […]

Snow Leopard: Initial Thoughts

I took the day off to travel to Albany, NY for the weekend. Our flight landed in Albany just before 9:30am and we made it to the Apple store a few minutes after 10. I picked up my copy of Snow Leopard and the whole experience was a little anti-climactic. I was in and out […]

Jailbreaking My iPhone 3G

I’ve been contemplating the idea of jailbreaking my iPhone for months now. I always wanted to try it out and open myself up to new features that are not available to “well-behaved” customers. In case you aren’t familiar with jailbreaking, Wikipedia describes it as “a process that allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to run unofficial […]

Yes, AT&T Continues To Suck

I’m very, VERY angry with AT&T right now. Not surprised? Me neither. After the MMS and tethering delay, and ridiculous upgrade rates after the iPhone 3GS launch it seems like AT&T is on everyone’s list. Friday I had quite an experience with AT&T customer service when I called them regarding an extra $54 worth of […]

Flight Control Game for iPhone

My co-workers and I have become quite obsessed with a certain iPhone application recently. So much to the point where I think it deserves it’s own blog post! The game is called “Flight Control” [iTunes link] and for 99 cents, it’s sure to keep you entertained for hours. I don’t have very many games on […]
