The Blendtec Total Blender takes on the iPhone 4S and Siri. "You're making a terrible mistake," says Siri. Enjoy :-)
Every day when you purchase that cup of coffee or lunch or whatever it is, we subconsciously think to ourselves “can I afford this?” With the Economizer app, this will cut out the guessing game & makes it much easier for you to know.

iOS 5 has a lot of cool features, and TidBITS has a great article walking you through some of the useful features that you may have missed. Some are for both the iPhone and iPad, while others are just for one device or the other. Regarding features common to both devices, the TidBITS article covers the new Shortcuts feature, the ability to sync wirelessly without being plugged into a power outlet, using Airplay to mirror the screen of your device on an HDTV, and an explanation of how to change the order of apps in Notification Center.

Definitely not another typical tower defense game, Jelly Defense is unique in both design and concept. The graphics are incredibly well conceived, bright and colorful. The sound is similarly intoxicating, but in a weird yet compelling way. I can't remember playing a TD game with this much flare. Enough with the colorful adjectives, and on to the review.
If you have an iPhone you have a built in GPS. Why not use this application right at your fingertips. there are many different applications available in the app store that do a great job turning the iphone into a GPS. Even if you don't need a GPS you need a way to hold your iphone while you drive. It makes using the iphone very simple. The Brachetron Universal window mount featuring Grip-it is the only mount I have found that will hold the iphone securely inside an Otterbox case. Many companies make great mounts for the iphone but they can't be used with a case. Hello, how many users like to walk aroun

I have written a fair amount of code in my time. When the iPad first came on the scene, one of the first apps I used was a text editor. I didn't use it for long. Years of physical keyboard use made using the on-screen keyboard a pain to type for more than five minutes. Most of all, I missed the lightning navigation of Emacs, Vi or even TextMate. But I haven't given up the search. Did Textastic give me hope in using the iPad for long stretches of code writing, or did it sink my expectations deeper into the abyss of no-can-do? Read on to find out.
So let me answer the big question first. Will Textastic on the iPad replace your favorite laptop-centric text editor? Not quite, although it has made great strides toward having that day happen sooner than later.
The Joy Factory iPad 2 C-Clamp mount allows the user to secure the ipad 2 to any hard surface. I have had the privilege of using this mount and it is great. It makes using te ipad 2 in ant location much simpler. I enjoy using my ipads 2 in many different locations. This device allow me to always have it positioned the way I want. I don't have to worry about knocking it off the table or desk. It is always securely positioned to my best viewing position.

Apple issued a press release today saying that over 4 million iPhone 4S units were sold over the weekend. According to Computerworld, this beats analysts predictions of 3 million units, and dwarfs the 1.7 million sold the first weekend for the iPhone 4. It's amazing how consumers have responded. You wouldn't think that there would have been that much pent-up demand.

The Wall Street Journal has a funny article documenting Siri's sense of humor. For example, the article tells about someone who said to Siri, "Beam me up." And Siri replied, " Sorry, Captain, your tricorder is in Airplane Mode." And to the question, "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" Siri replied "Depends if you're talking about African or European wood."
I have enjoyed blogging for many years. I think most most people will agree with this statement. Most people's first website is a blog or a static site built on the wordpress frame. I started my adventure blogging before the ipad was developed. I am always looking for ways to improve my sites or blog. Today we are moving toward icloud development and more people are using the ipad and tablets. This seems to be the trend we are in now. Therefore, I believe developers are starting to develop more applications to fit this style.

Gov. Brown has declared today Sunday October 16 Steve Jobs day in California.
In honor, I found this video created on a Macintosh, with only Macintosh sounds and Steve's voice.

As much as I love my iPad and iPhone, I missed being able to simply write on my iDevice and have it magically turned into typed text.
With the rollout of Siri, we will can now just talk to our iPhone and have it type text....something I might add was temporarily available back in 1997 on my Newton. Yes that's right, Dragon Software, the brains behind Siri, made voice recognition software for Newton, but was quickly squashed by Apple, for some reason. But I digress....
