Busy Web Product Manager Creates Time for Home Life

(Author’s note: This article is based on a conversation I had with Christian Zambrano, Project Manager of the JACI Group, Inc.)

PalringoChristian Zambrano’s work is never done! He works for a company that has a Midwest office and programming staff in India. Because of time differences, he gets urgent questions sent to him at all hours of the day. His iPhone lets him take the office with him. He can be anywhere and check his two work-related accounts and one personal e-mail account.

SafeWallet Winners

 The SafeWallet Contest is over, and just want to thank SBSH for sponsoring this giveaway and to all the great comments from our readers. Winners, and instructions on getting prizes are posted after the break. I personally use Spb Wallet on my touch (see my review), but that is only because they had PC syncing before SBSH (which SBSH now has also added). It's good to see that people are being serious about their sensative data and protecting it.



Radio client news: Clock Radio at a 66% off; major roundup update

I've just finished posting a major update to my radio client roundup (more precisely, in the second part).

In it, I review two radio applications containing a timer - one, Clock Radio, containing even a very nice and big clock. Incidentally, the latter is at a 66% off this weekend and is offered for $1 only. (Hurry up if you need it.)

I've also elaborated on which radio clients can be put in the bckground on jailbroken devices.

 



Still Hot for the iPhone!

Many, but not all celebrities love the iPhone; favorite free apps; more.

Tinsel town may be all about Twitter these days, but the iPhone and celebrity users are still hot. Actress Katherine Heigl isn’t shy about using her iPhone for both business and pleasure, and manages to keep it fashionably protected by swapping between hip green and chic powder blue cases. Foxy Megan Fox is another early adopter who rarely hides her phone away in a purse and always has it adorned in a colorful case.

Ashton Kutcher may be the current pitch man for Nikon, but he’s often spotted at restaurants, events, and awards shows capturing the moment with his sleek black iPhone 3G.

Backpacking through Africa

Cellular networks were widespread in northwest Africa, but data service was harder to find.

Mud MosqueWe’re Empty Nesters, and with the economy caving in and nothing else to do, my wife Gwynne and I decided to backpack through Africa. We couldn’t take much with us, but I did have room for my laptop and iPhone.

Great Internet-Based Apps

Amazon’s new Kindle app, Skype for iPhone, and more.

 My favorite iPhone apps continue to be those that let me conveniently access Internet content or take advantage of Internet-related services. Fortunately, most of the major players on the Internet are releasing iPhone apps, including Amazon’s Kindle, Skype, the Pandora music service, Facebook, and Google Earth. Best of all, they’re free. This column will give you a quick look at some of the best of these apps.

Winning and Losing Virtual Fortunes on the iPhone

Reviews of Texas Hold 'Em, Virtual Pool, and Image Poket Touch

Even with the bad economy, I’ve made over $300,000 since the beginning of the year! Unfortunately, these are virtual dollars, not real ones. I’ve amassed this fortune playing Texas Hold ‘Em ($4.99) and Virtual Pool ($1.99) on my Apple iPhone.

Great Games to Entertain a 5-Year Old

The right game can entertain your child and develop his or her mind

I can’t remember when the negotiations with our five year-old began, but they’ve been going on for a while now. They involve an ongoing discussion of what he’s allowed to play and how much time he can spend with our iPhone. I remember a quieter, simpler time when he was satisfied with looking over my shoulder while I played Koi Pond. But he’s older now, and sometimes talking with him is like trying to carry on a conversation while rafting down a roaring mountain stream.

In the past few months, we’ve watched our son play a lot of games on the iPhone, and have come to some general conclusions about the suitability of different games for a boy his age.

Combat Action for your iPhone or Touch!

Reviews of Brothers in Arms, Hellfire, and Armageddon Squadron.

I have played my share of video games, starting with the original Pong. I remember when Space Invaders was housed inside a cabinet that was bigger than I was. Over the years, video games have not only become faster and more realistic, but the hardware that they run on can be held in your hand! I now mostly play mobile games and have a growing number of titles installed on my iPod touch. I especially love first-person shooters (FPS) and 3-D action games (usually involving combat of some type). I am amazed how handheld hardware has evolved in order to run the latest modern games. However, porting games to the iPhone has its challenges.
