It’s been a long journey and even though you still kick butt encoding video you’re too big and you can’t run OS X Mavericks (officially).
iOS6 Maps is not amazing, which is humerously documented here, nor is it great, neither was Google Maps for iOS 3/4/5/6 and I honestly can’t believe some people would say otherwise (e.g.). I do agree Google Maps was “awesome” and the “killer app” for the iPhone in the first couple years but there’s no way it’s still being considered as “great”. […]
Great episode of Hypercritical (#41: The Homer) this week. It’s a great follow-up to the “Serving at the Pleasure of the King” article that I was so critical…in Google Reader (that place that I loved so much).
Aside from content readers and the browser on the iPad, AirVideo is my most used app. The ability to stream any video makes the iPad so much more useful. Allowing for on the fly conversion is excellent, I haven’t found a codec or format it wont convert and live play yet — it will even […]
I switched to Chrome last month, ever since it’s been getting better by the week. At first I was amazed at how the browser and extensions update themselves, I’m not sure how it works but I love the surprise of improved functionality. 1password is a great example, it has gradually added features and it’s getting […]
I’ve been playing with the new iPhone OS 4.0 this afternoon and it’s a biggie. Not only do we finally have the ability to run apps in the background but there’s plenty of new APIs for developers to create some new awesomeness. After watching the demo with Pandora and Skype I can’t wait to run Pandora in […]
I want to like this “Magic” Mouse but I can’t get the tracking speed right and the scrolling is out of control when I’m using it on another machine through synergy. I’m using MagicPrefs but still! I’ll post a review after I play work with it more.
What’s so revolutionary about the iPad? Nothing, except… The Apple touch of simplicity. Anyone can make a hardware device like this, a lot of manufacturers are trying, but the Apple ease-of-use gives it the ability to be a family device, like the iPhone is already in so many homes. I could imagine having an iPad for […]
If you follow me on twitter you already know that I’m not blown away by the new Apple iPad. I do believe the device will eventually revolutionize home computing ( I’ll get to that later ) but I’m not sold on the bigger iPhone at $499 right now. In 60 – 90 days when more […]
After reminding myself how much flash sucks and YouTube’s push for html5 last week, I’m speculating: Google’s want for HTML5 video embedding was more about mobile than the desktop. Google can drop Android plugins to play YouTube video and run them within the browser. Google will not need to worry about phone performance or hardware […]
