Windows running on an iPad?

Who remembers the days when Windows 95 ruled the world? I certainly do. In fact I’m sure my first ever Microsoft PC experience was on the ’95 operating system. Some guy over at KamaGames.com was obviously feeling slightly nostalgic and decided to run an emulator on his new, slightly too shiny, touch screen device. Any one else notice the protective cover…

Welcome, spring! 10 gardening apps

Spring had definitely arrived in my neck of the woods. The crocuses and pansies are beginning to poke up through the grass. The forsythia in my front yard — despite my best efforts to ensure its demise — has bloomed again. I have had a vegetable garden in my backyard every year since I could remember. Back when I was knee-high to those tomato plants, my…

OS 4.0: Tired of talking about it – just show me already!

Apple has told us what to expect. Adriana, Cam, Matt and I gave our opinions of the new OS and RedmondPie has informed us that the 4.0 OS can be jailbroken. But what will it actually look like and do? I have to admit – the following videos, showing off Apple’s newest OS, surprised me a little. I didn’t think multitasking would run as smooth as it…

Matt’s take: The iPhone OS 4.0 tentpoles

In the wake of yesterday’s iPhone OS 4.0 preview event, the internets are buzzing with reactions ranging from “Yay, multitasking!” to “That’s all? Android is going to BURY the iPhone now!” As usual, the reality lies somewhere in-between the two extremes. Here is my initial take on the seven “tentpole” features announced, specifically from the perspective of…

No WiFi for your iPad? There’s a (jailbreak) app for that

Well, well. It has become apparent that iPad users are looking for an alternative to AT&T’s network when connecting to the web. I have come across an easy way for your iPad to have a data connection and not have to pay any extra then what you currently do. First you will need to have a jailbroken iPhone. If you are curious on how to jailbreak,…

Vid – iPhone 4.0 OS jailbroken

Musclenerd has done it again, and there is proof. Musclenerd, of the iPhone Dev-Team, has given us a short taste with this newest video allowing us to see that it IS possible to jailbreak Apple’s newest OS. Just yesterday, Apple gave us a sneak peak at what we can expect with their newest software. Today, we can continue our excitement as we wait for…

Bob’s take: The iPhone OS 4.0 in review

Ummm, is that it? Really? Is that all Apple has for us? I really thought and expected to see more. Most of what was shown to us today was suppose to “wow” iPhone users. But really these features are well over due. As a proud owner of a jailbroken iPhone, I have been able to enjoy all of these features since I picked one up nearly a year ago. Here are…

Adriana’s take: The iPhone OS preview in review

I just got done writing up a post about the iPhone OS 4.0 preview today on PhoneDog, and in the course of that, I had an epiphany. Let me share: The iPhone 4.0 sneak preview was clearly disappointing for iPhone/iPod Touch users, and for so many reasons. Sure, multitasking – our most-wanted feature – is finally being addressed in OX 4.0, but not…

Cam’s take on iPhone OS 4.0 event

So the “sneak preview” is over and done with, and we’re left again with a few more questions than answers. When Jobs announced there were 100 new features and 7 major changes I was pretty excited, I didn’t know what to expect. Of course, with pressure mounting for Apple to do something about multitasking, they couldn’t refuse to address that issue. So let’s…
