• Twitter: No Plans to Build Desktop Clients

    Liz Gannes: Perhaps most interestingly, he said that Twitter does not plan to release official desktop clients, which had been a major concern for some third-party developers. So this pretty much seals Tweetie for Macs fate right? Worst news from Twitter to date.

  • Are Verizon Execs Dickheads?

    Verizon is the largest U.S. carrier of mobile telecommunications, we all know that – why then don’t they have the iPhone, they aren’t getting the first crack at Windows Mobile 7, they didn’t get Android first, they aren’t getting the Samsung Galaxy Tab first either. So what the hell is going on at Verizon, surely […]

  • How to make the Droid sound

    The sound in question is the robot voice that you hear say “droid” in the commercials. I am on my iPad so I can’t try it right now, but no doubt this works. Funny suggestions as to what you should type as well.

  • This Eric Schmidt Statement Scares the Crap out of Me

    Claire Cain Miller: He and other Google executives were not shy about needling Facebook for making it difficult for Google to import social information. Upon signing up for Facebook, people can import their Google contacts, but it does not work the other way around,  Jonathan Rosenberg, senior vice president of product management, noted. “The best […]

  • At Best Buy iPad sales are up, PCs down.

    No surprise, the iPad is grabbing up to 50% of laptop sales at Best Buy. I have heard from a couple of people that Best Bu is hard selling the iPad over laptops, which one would think would hurt their profitability with regards to the Geek Squad guys. Interesting none the less.

  • Smoking Apples Thoughts on iOS 4.2 Beta for iPad

    This beta was enough for me to decide to renew my Dev account and put on my iPad. Two things I wanted were the folders for apps and the unified inbox in mail. As I said the other day this update keeps everything that was great about the iPad and adds to it. It is […]

  • Google Is Now Officially Evil

    Dan Frommer: All's fair in business, we suppose. But Google is now basically acting like heyday-era Microsoft here, throwing its weight around and screwing over small companies for its own gain. Google Android boss Andy Rubin went as far as to call Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha “multiple times” to impose a “stop ship” order on […]

  • Dreaming Up a Single Input Login Form

    This looks like a great idea, but what if your password has a space in it? That seems like it may cause a problem, not to mention it would eliminate usernames with spaces (though most sites don’t allow that, and why not?).

  • Is the iPad Still a Single Taskers Dream With iOS 4.2 & Multitasking? Yep.

    That seems to be the question on many pundits minds over the past few days, now that I have the update (iOS developer program) I can tell you that 4.2 still keeps the iPad user just as focused. Even more it keeps the user more productive. I saw quite a few posts where people were […]

  • Shawn Blanc’s Inbox Zero

    Shawn Blanc: Inbox Zero means I care more about this moment than I do about my narcissistic tendencies of knowing who’s talking to me on Twitter. It means I care more about doing my best creative work than about keeping up with the real-time web and being instantly accessible via email. I stopped caring about […]

  • The iPad & Competitors

    Peter Svensson for the AP (via the Seattle Times): It took competitors a couple of years to start catching up to the iPhone in a serious way. The gap will probably be shorter for tablet computers, but by getting the iPad right on its first try, Apple has real head start. Maybe I’m trying to […]

  • Status Of CrunchPad Litigation

    This is a pretty wild account of what is going on, of course only one side is shown here. What is shown is pretty damning evidence against Fusion Garage. The thing is though (and Gruber said something to this affect a while back) what are they fighting over? This product is not making money, what […]

  • Bill Hill On The Future of Reading: iPad Blows Kindle Out Of The Water

    Fantastic read, Bill Hill: When the history of reading on screens is written, it might well be seen as a series of footnotes to the iPad. Yes, we’ve had other eBook devices before now. And yes, the Kindle broke new ground with long battery life using the eInk technology. But as I said in an […]

  • QoTD: The cult of busy

    It’s the ability to pause, to reflect, and relax, to let the mind wander, that’s perhaps the true sign of time mastery, for when the mind returns it’s often sharper and more efficient, but most important perhaps, happier than it was before.–Scott Berkun [via Shawn Blanc]

    Peter Bright does a great job covering all of IE 9. One thing that I think is pretty nice is the way tabs are handled, they take up no extra vertical space. They are not on the top or bottom of the URL bar (Chrome is top, Safari is bottom right now) rather they are […]
