  • April 11th, 2012

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?

  • July 15th, 2010

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 […]

Apple iPad, Underwhelmed? Will you buy one?

  • January 27th, 2010

The Apple tablet for the masses is here and it’s called the Apple iPad. I’m sure Apple conducted hours of user research & feedback to decide on the name iPad. Right? I really liked the idea of the tablet being called Canvas though. So what are my initial thoughts? When will the iPad Pro be […]

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

  • October 22nd, 2007

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 […]

Hold your breath, Apple iPhone to HTC TyTN II Kaiser

  • October 2nd, 2007

UPDATE: My thoughts and experiences concerning the HTC TyTN II Kaiser. Naturally, as time progresses, personal interest and taste change; replaced with new interest(s). Despite my own attempts to persuade myself to ignore the urge, I rarely follow through with my intention(s) to resist falling for the next latest & [purportedly] greatest gadget. Call it […]

MOTOROKR S9, wireless – sounds OK, looks dorky

  • September 23rd, 2007

UPDATE 10/29: Lindsay has been selected as the winner. Email confirmation sent. Congrats Lindsay! Motorola is trying their best to make a niche for themselves in the mobile entertainment arena with the ROKR (rocker get it?) line of cellphones & accessories. Sprint / Motorola sent me Motorola’s latest, the MOTOROKR S9. Although I admit fascination […]
