I love Mac magazines! It feels like Christmas every time one arrives in the mail. I have been a subscriber to iPhone Life since the beginning, and MacWorld and MacLife for well over 10 years. I still have MacAddict cd's dating back to 2003. Remember when all the magazines included cd's with each issue?
Based on the choppiness of the FaceTime video, it appears to me that this is the reason at&t does not allow this to happen right now. It looks like the 3G network will work great with Data however, not with Video yet. Please read the entire blog first.
Did you know the U.S. Government is creating apps for mobile devices? They currently have 18 apps available including an alternative fuel locator, FBI's Most Wanted, Product Recalls, and WhiteHouse.Gov. Of course, they are all free! Check them out on the US Government Website.
The Early Edition is an RSS reader for the iPad with an important distinguishing twist. While other newsreaders render new story items as unread emails, Early Edition approaches such tidbits as articles in a virtual newspaper. The application's magic is in the way it compiles news from numerous sources, formats and media types into a cohesive and very traditional newspaper look-a-like experience.
So I have been checking the various online forums to see what peoples experiences have been so far installing the new iOS4 update, specifically as it relates to the iPod Touch. I have a 2nd generation unit so I know my version will be stripped down. I am okay with that at the moment because I am happy this older device is still getting some support. I have seen more os updates to my touch in less than a year that I had with my windows mobile device in 6 years. I will not have access to my desktop until the weekend, so that's the earliest I can do the update. I have seen a bunch of people complaining about the OS update making their device more slow and causing problems with iTunes, and some wanting to downgrade back.
I have written before about Finger Arts and their Hangman RSS app. It's a great app because not only does it keep you entertained, but it's informative. News feeds are used for the hangman words. Well, Finger Arts had another cool app before Hangman RSS and it's called Guess the News. And while they have a Lite version for free, the pro version is free TODAY ONLY in partnership with OpenFeint.
If you like news, wheel of fortune, hangman, crosswords, or just well polished apps, and you like FREE, you will like Guess the News!
I expect innovation, not regurgitation from Google. While enthusiastic about Google's deal with AdMob finally going through, I'm less than impressed with their new proclamation of partnering with Sony for a Google web TV. Don't get me wrong, I love Google and Sony, but talk about being late to the party.
Why am I annoyed? Aside from Google wanting to do things other than what they're really, really good at?
Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité are not the only things I love about France, though I deeply connect to these concepts. I remember my time in Paris some years back very fondly, the amazing culture, food & wine and a people who in general seem far more interested and understanding of what is happening in the world than my friends here.
I was really looking forward to downloading the iPad versions of my favorite news apps — AP News and the New York Times. But now, having used them, I've decided I prefer using the iPhone versions on my iPad. Take AP News. The home page has a lot of eye candy, but I don't see what it adds.
