Google co-founder Sergey Brin, in an interview with The Guardian, is kicking up the fear factor about the future of the open web.
Perhaps it is because I'm getting older, or rather that I on the side of the mountain where I realize I have less steps ahead of me in life than I have already taken on the journey.
Placeme Puts the Privacy Debate Front and Center. Again. (It Also Isn’t Working the Way it is Advertised)
I have a game I play with an old friend. It's called "there are two kinds of people in the world." When we discuss current events and other things, one of us will come up with some way of classifying reactions to the topic at hand by saying "there are two kinds of peopl...
Most of the controversies about the new iPad (HeatGate, Battery Life, etc...) seem to have become stale news now that days have passed and users are experiencing the device for themselves.
VPN and remote solutions for users who have to access data on a network or a home or office computer have been around for quite some time.
Last week Kevin brought the new iPad App, Paper, to your attention. The day before that I gave a "not ready for prime time" review of Taposé.
I almost expected the headline of this Consumer Reports piece to be, The New iPad is Hot, But Not Like You Think. But that would be too much irony for a Monday morning.
April Fools Day on the Internet used to be one of equal parts fun and frustration. Aspiring pranksters got your goat with clever blog posts, some born as clever press releases.
One of the great joys of my job as Artistic Director for Wayside Theatre is that I'm surrounded by talented and creative artists all day long.
The big news in the Tabletscape is as predictable today as it has been for awhile. Google is going to open an online store to attempt to sell Tablets directly.
I guess one could call the legal and business wrangling that is going on between the big mobile players entertaining. At times it certainly appears so.
I've already gone on record stating I'm not in favor of a trend that some theatres and entertainment venues are trying to start. The idea I'm opposed to is to set aside seats for a performance where audience members can "tweet" or "Facebook" (is that a verb?) during the...
Retina, Retina, Retina. It seems like that's still the one of the big topics about Apple's new iPad. I'm already on record about how I feel about the Retina display.
Box has rolled out a new cloud based service called Box OneCloud.
Well, well, well. All good things come to those who wait, and apparently have persistence. Taposé , an iPad App that I and many others were interested in has had a tortured journey, but it appears it will be available later tonight on the App Store. The App had been...
I had a little time off yesterday. After mowing the grass for the first time this season I decided I'd do some shopping. I took care of some essentials for the house and then stopped by the local Best Buy just to take a look.
The inevitable is here and quite frankly I'm glad. Quite a few new iPad owners are experiencing the faster speeds provided by Verizon or AT&T's LTE network and enjoying streaming HD video on that new Retina display.
Yes, the new iPad runs warmer than the iPad 2. Anyone not know this yet? Well, as expected, Consumer Reports will fill you in if you've had your head in the sand since Friday. CR is out with a report that states what many have already said.
So, I took a trip to the Apple Store last night to talk about the yellowish tint I've been talking about on the new iPad's Retina display.
I've been living with the new iPad since its arrival on Friday. Apple has done it again. But not necessarily in the way you might think I mean.
The biggest deal about the new iPad is the awesome, outrageous, amazing, beautiful, mesmerizing, pick your adjective, Retina display.
You knew it was coming and it appears it is already beginning. The big feature for the new iPad is the stunning/outrageous/amazing/awesome/astounding/pick your adjective from the early reviews high definition display.
Interesting. Apple is known for doing some interesting shuffling with its delivery carriers when it comes to a new product. We've seen all sorts of shenanigans in the past with packages sitting in warehouses just waiting for the official delivery date.
Adam just posted a story that about Samsung providing the displays for the rumored iPad-mini or whatever the heck it might or might not be called.
Oh, my. First there's the waiting and the sorting through the rumors. Then there's the sorting out about what Apple really means in its announcement.
Apple is a few hours away from announcing its next edition of the iPad. Regardless of what it will be called, and to a degree, regardless of what features it will contain, the juggernaut that is Apple will continue to roll on, bowl over, or run through competition that ...
Penultimate is still my favorite iPad Inking App and I've given (and will continue to give) most of them a try. I like the way Digital Ink lays down on the screen and the wrist protection.
Staples loves Tablets. Or at least Staples loves customers who might be interested in Tablets and wants to sell some more. So Staple is pushing out a new infographic with some survey data about Tablet users essentially saying people love their tablets. There's some i...
As I'm watching the Year of the Ultrabook happen at CES 2012 I'm also watching what appears to be a re-trenching year in the mobile tech sector.
I'm sure there are still memories of the Microsoft Courier around here. It was kind of a "holy grail" and unicorn all rolled up into one.
Words are tricky things. They can define things. They can screw things up if you're not careful. In the hands of skill wordsmiths they can be turned on a dime, making a strength look like a weakness or vice versa.
Apple is sending out media invitations for an event in New York City for January 19th. Those hoping for some sort of new and shiny device shouldn't get that excited.
OK, is there some sort of water filled apocalypse coming our way in the near future that will drown us and our mobile gadgets that we haven't been told about? Or are the dangers inherent in Stall Surfing finally becoming a marketing concept that we companies can rely on...
Hmmm? Convertible Tablets? Where have we heard that before. I have to admit, hybrid Tablets have always intrigued me since the bygone days of the HP tc1000 series.
