Appy Geek gets update!


One of my fav news reader apps (see our Appy Geek review here) got an update last week. The only thing that jumped out at me on iPad was additional footer ads that now appear (which seemed to disappear by changing screen orientation). Apparently, there are more features under the hood now for iPhone/iPod touch. Things like a new "Word Cloud" feature that I still don't quite understand, but maybe the added PR release below will help explain better than I can...

Apps beat web browser, will conquer TV next


It's a curious thing why apps have become so popular. iPhone and iPad users tend to prefer using them to using a web browser.

Remember that Apple at first had no intention of letting programmers create apps for the iPhone. Rather, developers were forced to create "web apps" — iPhone-sized websites that had the same sorts of discrete functions as do today's apps. And the conventional wisdom back in 2007 was that this was the way to go.

Shootouts: LTE on Verizon vs AT&T; Flipboard vs Zite vs Pulse


Comparative reviews can be very helpful, and I wanted to be sure you saw two recent ones that I thought were particularly useful. First of all, one of the most important features of the new iPad is LTE — a fourth generation data protocol that gives you superfast Internet speeds.

In some cases, your choice will be clear, because one might not be available in your area. But if both are available, you'll want to know which is better.
