Imagine my surprise to get an email from Adam Curry, the guy I watched in the '80s introducing music videos to the world via the just-launched MTV channel.  Over the years, Adam has embraced change, becoming one of the first celebrities to launch a website and a podcast.  More recently, Curry launched The Big App Show, a free app that highlights one app a day.  Originally, The Big App Show was strictly for the iPhone but he has just added Android apps.  Adam demos the apps in a unique way, by superimposing himself, green screen style, over the live screencast, in portrait mode, suitable for viewing directly on the iPhone.

Top Three Multi-Purpose Scanner Apps

Apparently, developers have finally recognized the need for a utility that lets users scan images and documents on the go. The number of scanning apps has increased dramatically in the last six months to a year. Predictably, the performance of a scanner app is affected by several different environment variables, including lighting, amount of text you're scanning, whether it's handwritten or printed text, and how still you can hold the camera when you take the picture. Still, these apps add a needed feature to the iPhone. Here are three of the best.
