Merriam-Webster's Dictionary Review

image

 There are some things I like about lugging around a real dictionary: it requires no power source, and you can quickly flip to a section and scan page after page. In fact, I would argue that technology has yet to match the human hand/eye coordination and acuity for quickly scanning through written documents, but that’s another post.

G1 vs iPhone Part 4...and wrap up

image

 This is my final post in the G1 vs iPhone review series.



G1 vs iPhone Part 3

image

 My last 2 posts were focused on the new G1 and how it stacks up against an iPhone (or even an iPod touch) from a hardware and operating system perspective. The G1 does well, but some of it's best points are still to be revealed... Let's look at the browser, and how some of the messaging applications compare.



G1 vs iPhone Review Part 2

image

In my previous post, I put up some unboxing pictures of the G1 next to the beloved iPhone and iPod touch. Now let's look at the G1's home screen, menus and OS... 



G1 shootout...and uh, unboxing!

image

This week I had the priviledge of reviewing the T-Mobile G1. The new phone that runs Google's Android operating system. I'm working up an article focused on product comparisons with the iPhone (and by extension, the touch), but wanted to post a few early screenshots and thoughts. I must say, I regret to have to send it back (it's an eval unit)... The iPhone wins the opening round no doubt, but version 2 of the flexible G1 might be a different story.



Gaze at the Heavens with Star Walk!

image

Star Walk is a pocket planetarium for your iPhone or iPod touch. Serious astronomers may need a more sophisticated tool, but I find myself burning through countless hours exploring the cosmos now. Shoot, I might go buy a darn telescope, and finally embrace my uber-geekiness!
