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.
When discussing the first computer - the Mark I at Harvard - a funny exchange: Letterman: How did you know so much about computers then?" Hopper: I didn't. It was the first one.
I've been playing with it off and on, and I've gotta say I'm impressed. Over 3G I experience no buffering issues, good sound quality, and an incredibly impressive resolution. These are still frames, so they're going to look blockier than things look in motion, but I still think they're impressively detailed:
Is the iPad a "computer" in your mind? Yes No View Results
These things have been out for awhile and they still exist, so they must work… but do they work well? An 8 GB card costs ~$125. What happens to video (it does work with video too, right?) files that you record but aren't within range of your computer? Do they automatically sync over when you [...]
I need help being ready the next time my significant other won't listen.
My Vimeo Plus membership is about to expire. For $59, I can't see myself renewing. Heck, at $29 I'm not sure I'd renew. Like it or not, YouTube has won. It's free, has HD, embeds, and has just enough privacy controls (Vimeo lets you control on which sites your videos can be embedded, YouTube does [...]
Every instance - every single one - of the ligatures in the book "Unplayable: An Inside Account of Tiger's Most Tumultuous Season" for my Kindle has an issue with ligatures. Most commonly this is "fl" - lowercase "F" and an "L" character next to each other (or "fi" - "F" and "I"). As you can [...]
It almost never fails - when I'm uploading a lot of files (typically I see this when I'm uploading a vBulletin update) - my server will eventually boot me out and refuse to connect for 10 to 15 minutes (or longer). Nobody's ever been able to give me a reason why or tell me how [...]
Yes, please. Every app with a text field should be able to email, tweet, blog, print, transmute, translate, and read aloud the current selection. Every app with an image view should be able to rotate, crop, set as wallpaper, save to Dropbox, post to Flickr, and upload to an SFTP server. Of course no single [...]
Mmmmmmmmm. OK. Only $400k and coming in 2012, though? I configured my own and it let me download a JPEG… but the JPEG wasn't even large enough to use as a desktop picture (wallpaper).
I read about DirecTV's Whole Home service today and excitedly logged in to my account to upgrade. I quickly saw that the button to upgrade was not listed as available, but took heart in the "please call to activate" text. Turns out that my two HD DVRs with ethernet (both of which are connected to [...]
You know that feeling you get when you see an invention and think "Why didn't I think of that?" The V Lock is one of those ideas. Car keys that just contain a memory chip and sit inside what amounts to a digital card reader with an "On" button nearby are another. The latter, however, [...]
With Casio's EX-F1 jumping $300 to $999, the EX-FH25 is looking pretty enticing. The stat that matters most to me is 240 FPS recording at 448 x 336 and 120 FPS at 640 x 480 are some nice numbers, particularly when you consider the fact that you can set the shutter speed to 1/2000 second [...]
