Video: This pug hates the iPhone

How anyone or anything could hate the iPhone is beyond me. It is a device that can sell out in minutes or cause people to line up and wait for hours. It is beautiful and magical and is just all around wonderful. However, this dog apparently has some sort of bone to pick with it—no pun intended. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYtwq4J3raM As you…

Broken iPhone worthy of 911 call?

For the most part, Apple users expect their devices to work at least 100% of the time. Okay, maybe that is too optimistic, but Apple did say it should “Just Work.” By this, one can only assume that it should “Just Work” all of the time; after all, what is the point of something just working only some of the time? This being said, it is a no-brainer that…

‘Goodnight iPad’: something to tell this generation

As a young child, there was no such thing as the iPad or iPhone. We did not have Twitter or Facebook either. So, when my mommy read me a story, it was extremely low-tech. One of the books that I remember the most is a little story called Goodnight Moon. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this title, It is about a little bunny trying to go to sleep…

Getting in line for the iPhone 5 already? One guy is…

Its not unheard of for people to camp out in front of stores to get the latest products as soon as they are available. You see it outside clothing stores and electronic stores around the holidays all the time. But only at an Apple store would you see a man getting in line for an unannounced product a month before it is scheduled to come out. Well…

New service, old notifications

As many of you know, last week iCloud.com went live for developers allowing them to take a sneak peek at what is to come. If you want a quick look, Cam toured it: here. Anyways, I have been sick all week, and have finally felt well enough to catch up on news and what-not. So, I gradually made my way over to the new iCloud site and poked around… As…

Would you rather give up your toothbrush or your iPhone?

Recently TeleNav conducted a national survey and received some very interesting results. The tagline basically says it all: “TeleNav survey examines Americans’ attachment to mobile phones; finds iPhone users are least willing to let go of their devices” 514 driving-age American mobile phone users – consisting of both smartphones and feature phones -…

Something missing from Apple’s homepage?

“It Just Works.” Steve Jobs only said it about a billion times. I was sure this was going to be Apple’s new headline on its homepage. I mean, they always have some catchphrase that is witty, bold and all in all beautiful like this one: This changes everything. Well instead they just have “iCloud” (Above) and a picture. Did…

Offbeat iPhone: white ninja crashes into Apple Store

Well, here is a bit of interesting news. Apparently a man in a white shirt and hooded mask (he is being called a ninja) crashed a stolen Honda into the front windows of an Apple Store this morning. It appears to be a blundered robbery attempt. Greensboro, NC police described the suspect as a white male in what looked like a white ninja suit. If you ask…

Offbeat iPhone: Bigfoot captured on iPhone

You would have to travel pretty far from even the smallest town to find a person who doesn’t know who Bigfoot is. Half ape and half human, it always tends to find itself the center of speculation. Every once in a while, a video shows up with some “shocking new footage” and then is quickly shot down by critics. Well, this week another one…

Destroying Apple products

Destroying Apple products is something I never really understood. What is the point? 5 minutes of Youtube fame? If you don’t want them, I could give them a good home. No matter how much these products cost, there are always people destroying them on purpose. I mean we have the “Will it Blend” guy who always blends new Apple products, those random people on…
