• WebShell: An Ajax App for Admins


    Now this is an interesting little bugger. It’s an SSH application for the iPhone written in Ajax and available for download onto your favorite servers. Back when I used to be a sysadmin I always looked for SSH implementations for my portable devices. Not having one was usually a dealbreaker. I wouldn’t call this an ideal solution — it could be rife with insecurity &mdash… Read More

    DemystifyingDigital is a new feature written by Dan Havlik, editor of DemystifyingDigital.com As much as we love all the bells and whistles they’re putting on digital cameras these days (how could we live without our optical image stabilization?), a lot of features are so hard to figure out that most camera buyers don’t even bother. That’s why it’s refreshing when… Read More

  • iPhone Third Leg In Apple Chair, Apple Chair Sucks to Sit On

    Dave at MobileCrunch dug up an interesting comment by his Steve-ness about the iPhone being the third leg in the Apple chair, next to iPod and Mac. During the internal Jobs-note, however, an employee asked if the iPhone would cannibalize the iPod, to which Jobs responded that he’d rather see Apple cannibalize it’s own gear rather than someone else. So, as Dave points out, that chair… Read More

  • AT&T Speedier Because of Something That Starts With i?

    Late last night some AT&T geeks started benchmarking their network speed. Suddenly, after months of sub-standard EDGE speeds, they noticed 200+kbps during most trials, suggesting that someone out there has been tweaking things to make iPhone browsing a little less like pulling teeth. Read More

  • Geeking Up the Huffington Post

    A few months ago some of the CG crew were offered a spot on the Huffington Post, which is essentially a big free-for-all that includes work by Henry Rollins and a few other cultural luminaries along with a bunch of media schlubs like me. I decided to talk to their audience about the iPhone, explaining in no uncertain terms that they’d better get their noses out of their Kafka and pay… Read More

  • Great Outdoors: Grilling for Geeks


    Technology seems to improve rapidly as time goes by. Think back to fifteen years ago – ah yes, I can still remember my IBM PS/1. I was drawn to it by its sexy Windows 3.1 operating system and of all things, Paintbrush. That computer system is the reason I am writing this article today, because it sparked my love for technology. But that wasn’t my only childhood love. Another… Read More

  • Free iPhone?

    Nice piece on ArsTechnica about how all Apple employees who’ve been with the company for more than a year are getting a free iPhone in July. Well, there’s more to it than that, but that’s the part technophiles will drool over first. In the company-wide meeting, Apple honcho Steve Jobs called iPhone the third leg on the Apple chair (Mac and iPod being the first two). A… Read More

  • AT&T To Sell Special Wi-Fi Routers to iPhone Users?

    Russel Shaw at ZDNet got ahold of an AT&T employees’ objection script. These scripts are used by salesmonkeys to overcome the objections of unconvinced customers. They’re handy and pointed, and often do the trick. But beyond telling how the employees are going to be forcing people to take iPhones, the guide hints to a mysterious new product that AT&T might be selling… Read More

  • Jensen SportFones Review

    Almost all of the music that’s piped through the audio system at my gym sucks and you’d think the music would be good for the amount of money I pay on a monthly basis, but no, it’s not. And I need music to motivate me — as I’m sure it does for a lot of you — to help get through that last set of squats or the final mile of my run. But I’ve grown weary… Read More
