My iPhone 3G Review

Call me a traitor.  Call me weak minded to the Apple Jedi mind trick.  Yes I have a 3g iPhone, the cheapest one of course. My Treo 750, which I really liked, was starting to have some battery fade.  In addition, I was using the IE browser on my Treo more frequently, with more and…

Sony is brilliant, PS3 may surpass Xbox 360 in the future

The reason has nothing to do with games.  Pretty much, all games are available on all platforms. The reason is Blue-ray.  Is Blue-ray the best technology?  No.  Is it the cheapest? No.  Is the PS3 a cheaper and better Blue-ray player than stand alone players?  Yes.  Not only is it the cheaper or the same…

ATT Internet problems, too many iPhones?

My customer just contacted ATT because their on-call phone hasn’t been picking up email today via it’s data connection.  ATT said they are having nationwide Internet problems, but didn’t specify the cause. Anyone care to take a stab at the problem?  My guess is that the surge of iPhone inter-tubbers that have never had a real…

iPhone and ActiveSync, a security concern

A couple days ago, Mary Jo speculated that Apple has licensed Microsoft’s Active Sync technology which allows iPhone to securely sync with Exchange servers (over its smoke signal speed, EDGE data connection).   Will ActiveSync be out of the box today or an upgrade in the future?  Will it be the reported implementation on the iPhone to connect with…

3 months with the Treo 750

I know I come across as a whiner sometimes about gadgets, especially phones.  It’s just that I want one device that can do everything from making a phone call to opening my garage door to sending tri-corder data back to my starship in orbit. The Treo 750 hasn’t disappointed me, at all.  I honestly can’t think…

Motorola Q ends my phone nirvana!

I came very close to calling this post “The Motorola Q Turd”, but I thought that was a little brash.  After all, I have had it for about 8 months and at times it was a good phone and I even talked about it being close to Nirvana at one point. My troubles began last…

A High Tech visit to the dentist

This week I had the chance to catch up on some much needed personal maintenance, including a visit to the dentist.  Like most people, I have usually gone to the dentist that my wife or parents have gone too, without much research into the doctor, office, or technology.  In fact, out of all medical related…

NikePlus, Zune better be a platform!

There are two reasons why you will have to pry my iPod Nano out of my warm clutching hands (I am not that big of a geek to be buried with an Apple product).  The first, is that it is so easy to control while I am running.  The second is the new NikePlus device…

Seriously scary Blackberry

For years, competitors to Blackberry have been pointing out the inherent security flaws with RIM’s services such as, um, all your corporate data flows through their network (along with all your competitor’s data).   Microsoft’s play around this is the fact that Exchange Active Sync doesn’t flow over someone else’s network, it simply uses HTTPS over…

iPod vs the alleged Argo

First off, I have no inside knowledge of the alleged Argo device.  But from what people are saying, it might be a lot of things like and iPod with wireless, a small game console, a small browser device, maybe even a mobile phone.  I haven’t go a clue. Whatever it is, I imagine J. Allard…
