Yeah, science. What's it ever done for anyone?

I probably knew about Internet-to-cell-phone spam before this article from David Pogue - or maybe I read it in 2008 - but after getting my second text message spam in about seven weeks, I did some research. On AT&T, http://mymessages.wireless.att.com/ will do it for you. One note though - your regular AT&T Wireless login information […]
Over the course of a four days I received two copyright notices regarding some of the videos on my YouTube page. One was a message telling me that if I did not respond and consider removing a few videos, they may file copyright claims against them. I responded, pointing out that I believe the videos […]
Amazing (if true, and it seems to be):
A really nice job that shows off the fact that a feeling I've had for awhile now is true - that the online Apple Store is getting super-cluttered. Worth checking out, along with this post about Google Maps. Gonna have to subscribe to the blog.
A friend of mine likes his iPhone. Loves it, really. Wants to use it all the time. Unfortunately, he has terrible cell reception in his house. He gets good reception when he's out. Simple question, hopefully with a simple answer: is there a solution out there that will give him VOIP calling and answering of […]
Speaking of viruses, there's new evidence to support the idea that schizophrenia is caused by a virus. I love this stuff. Fascinating. It shows how much we still have to learn about the human body and the world in which we live.
Fascinating stuff. And Microsoft estimates it took 10,000 man days of labor to create? That's over 27 years.
Awesome. Check it out - watch bands for the iPod Nano. But how long does the iPod Nano battery last if you always want it in watch mode? Isn't it a bit annoying to have to click to turn the watch on, or do current nanos let you leave the clock on 24/7? P.S. Clock […]
I echo a lot of the sentiments shared in this post. The Kindle is far and away a better "reading" machine than the iPad. Still, for the things I blow through quickly - magazines - I'd love to get an iPad. I've said it since the iPad was announced. Disappointingly, there's been no movement on […]
I just realized that I have more devices in my house capable of playing content from Netflix (PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, two iPhones, four computers) than I have: Working keyboards (ADB or USB). Firewire devices attached to any and all Macs. Books I'm currently in the middle of reading (around six). Eggs in the refrigerator. […]
Wow. Homemade Spacecraft from Luke Geissbuhler on Vimeo.
Grrrrrr. We finally have software (on Mac OS X) that can play back and analyze golf swings with videos in portrait orientation (which makes sense for golf) and I discover that the otherwise venerable Casio FH-25 can't or won't rotate video - it doesn't set the "rotated" flag in the video file so that playback […]
How many pages of applications are on your iPhone? How many folders do you have and how many apps are just hanging out on their own? I have only two pages. As you would read, I have (italics = folders): Calendar, Clock, Notes, Maps Calculator, Games, Entertainment, Compass Sports, Social, Photography, Settings Weather, WeatherBug, TWC, […]
Hacking Netflix thinks so. I, however, do not.
