Rewind: BlackBerry maker thought first iPhone was bogus

It’s always so interesting to look back at history and marvel over how 20/20 our foresight was – or consider flubs that in hindsight make us want to facepalm ourselves. If I were in the executive leadership at BlackBerry’s Research In Motion, I’d be doing the latter. Turns out, when the very first iPhone was announced, it caused quite a ruckus at…

Cool iPig iPhone dock – features gesture controls

If you haven’t quite finished, or started your Christmas shopping yet, make sure you put this on your list to check out. This “cool” new docking speaker unit features gesture controls.

Steve Jobs named “CEO of the decade”

MarketWatch has very recently published the results of its CEO awards. Hardly surprising then that the award for CEO of the decade went to every Apple fanboy’s idol, Steve Jobs. There’s no denying that not everyone likes Jobsy, the way he talks, or pitches about Apple products. Many are annoyed and unswayed be his generous use of adjectives describing the…

The Weekly Moan: Randall’s wrong words

There are not many things that irritate me as much as someone making assumptions about me. If I were an AT&T customer (I’m not; I’m in the U.K.), I’d be extremely agitated at AT&T chief Randall Stephenson right now. When recently confronted with the notion that, should the iPhone arrive on Verizon, nearly half the carrier’s users would defect, he…

New jailbreak add-on lets you set a homepage in mobile Safari

This cool new jailbreak add-on does only one simple task, but it does it oh so well. “Home Page in Safari” lets you select any website of your choosing and make it the “go to” page (i.e. home page) when mobile Safari launches. All you have to do is select the “+” symbol, as if you wanted to save the page as a bookmark or save it to your springboard….

Jailbreak Tues – Video wallpapers

As an avid iPhone and Android user I find myself constantly contrasting and comparing the two.  On the iPhone side we have much better apps with a confusion-free layout. And, on the Android side we have an awesome integration of Google’s mobile applications and a great notifications system. Also with Android there is a little something called…

Pinball Magic turns your iPhone into the best arcade game

Remember the good old days when you would beg your parents for a ride down to the arcade? I remember spending endless hours running around from Pacman to Asteroids, and then to the best of them all – the pinball machines. If I’d never spent all those quarters, I would definitely be a rich man today. But it was always money well spent. Well now you can…
