An old project was dusted off and relaunched this week for both iOS & Android: Streamd.in. The core functionality of original web-based application remains – geotagged Twitter activity displayed in real-time on a map. View activity around your current location, or search for a new city to check out. Both apps inadvertently "throttle" digital noise […]

AT&T 3G MicroCell, who is doing who a favor?

Syl and I moved into a loft late last year and have had the worst experience imaginable with our AT&T iPhones. I completely understand that concrete structures aren’t exactly known to amplify carrier signals, but no other carrier (T-Mobile, Verizon or Sprint) suffers nearly as much as AT&T Wireless in the apartment. It’s terrible! In […]

3 Enhancements worth Jailbreaking your iPhone for

Every four months or so, I get the urge to do one of two things: If the iPhone is running an official OS build from Apple, I jailbreak it citing reasons of (a) flexibility, (b) customization, and (c) access to enhancements Apple either blocks from the App Store or blocks developers from offering users. If […]

Gmail IMAP vs. Push, sanity more important than Push?

UPDATE: Thanks to reader comments, I discovered that this mini-rant concerning Gmail Push was due to my handset being unable to sync properly. Formatting the phone and following the Google Sync setup instructions agin resulted in a properly synced phone. Thanks Camron. iPhone toting Gmail users with a knack for pulling out their phone to […]

AT&T FamilyMap, keeping tabs on your “loved” ones

On April 15th AT&T Wireless launched its browser based service FamilyMap which allows account holders to track mobile phones using cell tower triangulation or GPS (when available). Think of it as a personal lo-jack – only instead of tracking a vehicle or motorcycle, it’s purpose is to track individuals. To fulfill my curiosities concerning the […]

Advert for new Windows Live Mobile cuts corners with iPhone

A co-worker forwarded the following email announcement regarding Windows Live Mobile – screenshot of email below (click for a larger preview). The advertising agency responsible for pushing the Windows Live Mobile newsletter features a handset which seems to be suffering from a bit of an identity crisis. Who am I, what am I? With Microsoft […]

Acer Aspire One on Woot, grab your first netbook

I purchased one of these tiny Acer Aspire One netbooks overseas and would highly recommend it – if you’re up for some easy low cost upgrades. I added the bit about upgrading it because who is ever content with a standard configuration machine? If you head on over to Woot, the tiny netbook is on […]

Asus Eee PC sub-notebook running Apple OS X

Ignoring the legalities or hair pulling from Apple’s legal department, Dan decided that it was high time for a sub-notebook running OS X. If Apple wasn’t going to hurry up and build it, then he might as well take a stab at transforming the Asus Eee PC into the super portable Apple notebook that everyone […]

Unlimited SMS savings for iPhone (or any phone) family account holders

There are currently three different iPhone plan add-ons for at&t family accounts. Each plan offers unlimited data usage & visual voicemail. The only difference which dictates the price of each (3) is the number of text messages available. At current, the iPhone plans for existing customers break down as such: $20 includes 200 SMS Text […]

iPhone vs. TyTN II Kaiser, which came out on top?

Roughly 20 days ago, I took delivery of a shiny new HTC TyTN II Kaiser (recently re-badged and offered stateside as the at&t Tilt). Similar to the feature packed Nokia N95, HTC’s TyTN II Kaiser pulled out all the stops offering everything you could possibly want in a mobile handset that still managed to fit […]
