MobileRSS iPhone App Review

I don't know, but it just seems like RSS is so under-rated.  It certainly takes a backseat to Twitter, Facebook, Digg, Alltop, StumbleUpon, Reddit, and so many other online services that bask in the glory of media attention and daily mention basically everywhere.  Some even declare that RSS is dying, soon to be replaced by Twitter (or whomever else.)

More iPhone Game Madness... I'm "Apping" It

I had to laugh when I saw this.  Uncomfortably.  Reason being, I am (sort of) addicted to iPhone apps.  And I am definitely guilty of the activity dubbed "apping," which I'm guessing means the process of ignoring basically everything that's going on around you in favor of checking your RSS feeds and just... one... more... hand... of Texas Hold 'Em.  I promise.

I love banking, don't get me wrong (I used to be in the industry,) but making that extra trip always seems so cumbersome, doesn't it?  I mean, you have to wait in line, you have to fill out a slip, you have to ask the teller your account number because you forgot it, etc.  It all feels so... analog.  Frankly, I love my bank because they can do so many things online and have continued to provide reliable digital services...

Review of Apple's MobileMe iDisk App

A little bit under the radar, a new app has hit the App Store that's an exclusive to MobileMe subscribers.  If you've decided to line Apple's coffers with an additional $100 per year for that fancy email address and online storage, this might make you feel a little better about the money you spent.  Not a lot better, but a little bit better.

Pre-ness Envy: Will iPhone Users Defect to Palm's Shiny New Superstar?

I hate it when new cellphones come out.  Even if I'm happy with the one I already own, I inevitably lust after whatever's new, eagerly rationalizing the extra costs involved, and at some points in the past, even considered owning two phones (and on two occasions, actually did.)  Which is, like poodles and most vacations to Vegas, wasteful yet entertaining.

As such, here begins a new chapter in my endless gadgetry novel... the Palm Pre.  I'm seriously wondering whether Apple/AT&T is going to lose some customers over this little beauty... there's a lot that it does that's really tempting.  Here's some of the reasons why I (and probably others) would consider defecting to the Palm-side...
