  • ScanBizCards: use your iPhone 3GS to organize your collection of business cards

    Business cards are an anachronism. We all have them, we all pass them out to people we meet, but how many of you actually own a rolodex, or file the business cards you receive in any meaningful way? For the people you actually care to connect with — as opposed to the people from whom you dutifully accept a proffered business card with no intention of ever contacting — you might… Read More

  • iPhone OS 3.1.3 now live on iTunes

    Before you start scrambling for your phone, laptop and data cable, just relax for a second. The latest update to the iPhone software, version 3.1.3, is a minor one.

  • iPhone Beats Droid, Nexus One And Droid Eris In Touchscreen Performance

    To be honest, I don’t really care which is the better smartphone (or super-duper phone): the iPhone 3GS, the Motorola Droid, HTC’s Droid Eris, Google’s Nexus One, Nokia’s N900 or the Palm Pre.

Here’s another fun one to add to the mix: Blipr… Read More

  • Fring Brings Free Video Calling To The iPhone, Nokia Smartphones

    Apple has long been rumored to integrate video conferencing capabilities in the iPhone, and most expected Skype to incorporate such a feature in its free application for iPhone and iPod Touch devices sooner or later, but Israel’s fring is first to actually do it.

  • The Arms Race Between Teenagers And Parents Continues

    Back when I was a teenager my parents had a simple rule – I had to be home by midnight. There was a doozie of an exception, though. If I was drinking they didn’t want me to drive, so all I had to do was call home, tell them I was drinking and I could stay over at a friend’s house. You can imagine that my parents pretty much thought I was an alcoholic in high school since twice… Read More
