iPhone: Everything and More

So the iPhone is everything that Apple has said, as far as I concerned. I telling testimonial is over at Scobleizer. Scoble has had the Nokia N95 and been swooning over it- till he’d had a day to play with his son’s new iPhone. I didn’t wait in line- just drove over to a Center…

Fancast announced

So the site we’ve been working on at my new job was announced yesterday, in conjunction with the larger announcement that CIM (Comcast Interactive Media) has purchased Fandango. Fancast has been consuming all my time since I joined Comcast back in September, and it’s going to be cool destination. As you can see, the announcement…

Desktop Tower Defense

Normally, I don’t like little flash games. Even normal games, for me, require a delicate balance playability and strategy before I grow tired and bored with them. But I stumbled across DTD a few days ago and gave it a shot. A few hours later, I realized that DTD is so addictive, so engrossing, that…

iSync, Razr V3m, and Sprint: Part 2

Word around was that Apple introduced a new version of iSync with 10.4.9, and with it the promise of direct OSX support of the V3m. And Apple did add support for the V3m model to iSync, but they didn’t add support for the Sprint version! It still wouldn’t pair correctly with a fresh install of…

Blog Changes and Updates

So it’s been a while since I’ve posted here- but it’s nothing I’m sure you haven’t read on dozens of other blogs. I’m in a gadget deficit, and I switched jobs to one that keeps me much busier than I was before. I’m now working back in an office, for Comcast Interactive Media, and I…

Sprint Razr V3m and iSync

I ordered a Razr V3m from Sprint last week since the krzr looks to be too fat, and the razr has a larger screen. The phone is nice but one of the most important features I’ve been lusting after is the ability to sync my contacts over using iSync and USB. All the Moto phones…

MacBook: RSS – Random Shutdown Syndrome

My Macbook suffered from RSS over a month and a half ago. After taking it into the nearest Apple Store, I had to wait about four days to get the MB and heat-sink repaired. It went to the depo and was shipped back to me. About two weeks ago it began shutting down again. It’s…

Google Trends and the 770

So Google trends is now live– with it you can compare all sorts of things, like how the UMPC (remember Origami?) could turn out to be just a flash in the pan as the reviews of the first devices (just the Samsung for now) are rolling in– and almost all of them are dismal.  …

Nother test from OPML

This is my first test from the Macintosh version of the OPML editor. Dave released a new version of wp.root yesterday and it seems to support catagories on your blog. So I’m trying it out. I read about it over at Nomadic Coder. Wow, I didn’t realize that the editor understood a link- it just…

RSS Wrangling on the 770

I was looking around the other day for some good gui blog posting apps for windows. But I was also looking for some good RSS readers for Windows… I ended up looking at RSS Bandit and the OPML editor from Dave Winer. The OPML editor is a bit of a trial, as I don’t see…

Using OPML editor

Just like it says, this is a test from my 2nd attempt with the OPML editor and wordpress. Well, the title in that test post didn’t seem to go right. I’ve edited this with Ecto to make it more presentable…

Nokia 770

Did I mention that I’m anxiously waiting for my Nokia 770? They call it an internet tablet, but it looks like the next Newton (in a good way). Using real Xwindows and Gnome, this will be very interesting. There is a lot of talk here, in the forums at Internet Tablet Talk, and there is…

Posting Entries on XP

I wish there was a nice blog editor for Windows. Mars Edit and Ecto (both only available for MacOSX) are the best in the world. Too bad Ecto for windows sucks hard. I’ve even tried the new OMPL editor that Dave W. released, with his WordPress patch, but I can’t get it to work on…

Audio Books on the iPod

Since I’ve had my iPod Nano, I’ve really started using it with audiobooks. I’ve never listened to audiobooks before (in any format) but there is a certain type of book that really lends itself to an audio book. Plus I’ve really come to enjoy the force feeding of the book, not havisdng to actually hold…
