MobileMe - It's Just Not That Bad

This may win the award for one of my shortest blog posts ever... but I'd like to hear a little more from everyone about their experience with MobileMe.  All I've heard so far is a lot of griping.  The most recent being an email from the Steve himself, making clear that the launch of MobileMe was an epic fail.  I've heard of the web apps not working, emails getting lost, and worse.

So, why haven't I experienced any of this? I wrote a first experience review on this a while ago, but now that I've been using it for even longer and it has had time to simmer, here's my current verdict:

A Tech Free Weekend, or Why I Need To Relax

This past weekend, I went on a road trip to a place very different from where I'm living now, and what an experience it was.  I've done some limited traveling in the U.S., but mostly for work purposes, and never to truly immerse myself into another area's culture.  Usually, I had been too busy putting together spreadsheets, taking remote conference calls, and checking emails to see what was going on around me.

This time, though, is the first time I have taken a non-work related trip to an isolated, relatively tech-free area.

And let me tell you, it was very difficult... and eye-opening, too.

iPhone + Apps Store = Second Honeymoon

Well, I needed something to do as I sit here feverishly awaiting the "go-live" of MobileMe.

I've been playing with the new App Store today thanks to friends who provided me with the MobileMe installation package and iPhone 2.0 firmware package.  After a brief scare that I may have bricked my precious, I realized I needed to upgrade iTunes to the newest version before I could re-flash.  (Read: almost epic fail.)

The Reigning King Of My Bluetooth World

Bluetooth headsets are becoming more and more common than ever these days.  So common, that people often disobey common laws of courtesy, walking around with their headset attached to their ear like some sort of flashing plastic bio-genetic graft, pretending like they absolutely cannot afford to miss that important call from their buddy while they sit in the food court at the mall at 8:30PM munching on cheese fries and crappy pizza.

Ode To My USB Broadband Connection

To many techies, road warriors, and laptop-luggers, this may seem to be an outdated subject.  I mean, mobile broadband connections have been available for quite some time, and I think that most people who have been using them for a while really take them for granted.  We'll becoming ever greedy, salivating over super 3G speeds, consuming ever mounting mass amounts of delicious data, and forgetting how truly grateful we should be that it's even possible.

For grins and giggles, let's examine how it "used to be."

Wireless-N: How to Supercharge your Network!

Wireless networking has become so common in the average household; virtually everyone is connected to the internet wirelessly with their laptops, game consoles, and other devices. More recently, it's become important for users to have the speed to stream large quantities of data - either for HD video, VoIP, online gaming, or even all of those at the same time.
