  • Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011

    Raise one to Steve – who celebrated the crazy ones.

  • Steve Jobs, Master of Delivery

    Watching Steve Jobs introduce new technology is a wonder to behold. He doesn’t bash you over the head with hyperbole nor run circles around you with facts and figures. Instead he walks on stage in jeans and sneakers and pulls something out of his pocket like a wandering hiker might pull out a beautiful stone […]

  • Cloud Wars

    Marketing campaigns are gearing up for the major players offering cloud services as add-ons to their core products. Google Docs recently launched Google Cloud Connect,  a plug-in which lets  you add your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents to Google Docs and share with your colleagues. (Ars Technica reviews Cloud Connect and says it’s “not ready […]

  • Moo Vision

    ReadWriteWeb posts about Ben & Jerry’s, the ice cream company, releasing an Augmented Reality feature as part of their Scoop of Happiness iPhone app to increase consumer engagement (or should we say enthrallment?). What’s unique about this particular AR implementation is that it doesn’t require custom QR codes or other customization to be printed on the packaging […]

  • The iPad is a Digital Coffee Table Book

    After looking at the video below, which shows off the signature Apple User Interface, it’s very clear to me what Apple is doing here.

  • Microsoft Tablet vs. Apple Tablet

    Gizmodo has the goods on the Courier Tablet while Wired’s Gadget Lab has the summary (and hilarious mockup) of something iLounge is calling an the iPad. Either way, folks are looking for a way to innovate beyond the touch screen and netbook form factor. I’m not so sure this is the solution. If it’s going […]

  • Find My iPhone Fable

    Great story of how Kevin Miller tracked down his stolen iPhone using Mobile Me’s Find my iPhone app. While Kevin’s friend walked the streets of Chicago with a broadband modem-enabled laptop, they homed in on the actual person who had taken their phone and confronted them. “Have you got it?” I asked as I marched […]

  • iPhone is internet 1997

    One of the things that just seems crazy to me is that the iPhone cannot run applications in the background. The iPhone developer site explains: If you are running an application such as AOL Instant Messenger on your iPhone, everytime you receive a call or browse away from the application you would be signed out, […]

  • Finger Piano, a social mobile app

    Featured at last week’s Japanese iPhone Developer’s reception hosted by Six Apart I saw Finger Piano, a cool little app that allowed you to play the piano on your phone. As the bars move down towards the keys, you press them to carry the tune. The thing I like about this video? The fact that […]

  • Screenshot of MacBook Wheel Predictive Sentence Feature

    In the absence of any real substantive announcement from today’s MacWorld, people are talking up a fictional device announced by The Onion, the MacBook Wheel. I’m assuming you’ve already seen the video but here’s a screenshot of the predictive sentence feature with some choice samples.
