Everybody is talking about the "New, New Twitter." Of course they are talking about it on Twitter. On the surface, more power to them.
Ah, the legal battles continue. Apple took a loss in a Mannheim Regional Court in Germany today when a judge ruled in favor of Motorola Mobility.
This week has seen several updates and some new software to what I call the "roll your own" magazine type software. Google released its multi-platform Google Currents, which is its answer to Flipboard (check out Chris's post about Google Current here.) Flipboard the rei...

One of the highlights of each Christmas season is when Linda Epstein publishes her Annual List for Santa on TabletPC2.com. You might not think there's much to choose from for Tablet PC lovers, but Linda and Santa will prove you wrong. The list is full of great gadget...
This morning it sure felt like the holidays took a giant step closer to being here after a weather system moved through and left us with chillier, December-like temperatures.
Shakespeare has Orsino begin the play Twelfth Night with the line "If music be the food of love, play on." And certainly listening to music is a big part of many lives.
Yesterday word broke that the Google was putting some Apps in the Android Market Place on sale for a dime. Yep, $.10. Not surprisingly Amazon followed suit today putting some Apps on sale for the same paltry dime.
Most of us should know the sound. We hear it on our TVs or radios prior to a weather or alert or test of the emergency system. I'd insert an audio file of the sound but we all know it is obnoxious. But that's a good thing.
One of my favorite iPad Apps, the Ink Blot Award winning Flipboard has just received an update to version 1.7 that now makes it a universal App, now making it available to the iPhone and the iPod Touch.
Lots of folks are picking up on a study that says users are having some "fat finger" difficulty with Touch on the Kindle Fire. All of the Apple lovers are saying this affirms Steve Jobs' comments that Tablets in a 7 inch form factor just won't work.
I could have written the thoughts Harry McCracken lays out about using his iPad 2 for his work machine with a few minor tweaks. I didn't.
This will be a bit of a rant here. But it's a theme I've been on for quite some time. For the life of me I don't know how financial and market analysts stay in business, or for that matter attract any.
Yesterday a small firestorm started building around Carrier IQ, a smartphone monitoring company with software of the same name that monitors smartphone activity, which according to the company is only used for diagnostic purposes.
Today's theme looks like it is about security and companies that like to spy on our mobile device usage. Earlier we posted about this situation with Apple and now we are pointing to another situation with Android and other devices. Trevor Eckhart took a look at what ...
Security and privacy issues are always the rage and usually cause some rage when they surface. This latest one mentioned by Krebs On Security is certainly a head scratcher, even though the stories about it have been around for awhile.
Meg Whitman in an interview with Le Figaro has said that HP will most likely be making a decision on what it will do with webOS within the next two weeks.
Epic Games is set to roll out Infinity Blade 2.0 today and from what I've seen in the pre-hype videos it looks impressive. I enjoy Infinity Blade quite a bit, especially on frustrating days when I need to wack on something just to relieve stress. That said, Infinity ...
Well now. Gadget owners love when it comes time for an update to be released. Usually there is some prep for it coming down the pipes to refresh (and hopefully make better) your device.
Every year about this time we see lots of news stories about retailers who are making an effort to combat customers' "Wrap Rage." Any geek worth his or her salt, and any consumer knows what this is about.
Well, this is a marketing technique with some positive momentum (or is that aggressiveness.) Microsoft has put up a demo of the Windows Phone 7 UI that you can load into your browser on an iPhone or an Android phone.
Slashgear is pointing to an article in The Daily that have sources saying Microsoft is thinking about porting parts of its Office Suite for the iPad.
Each year at the theatre I helm, we present an annual Christmas Show. Nothing new about that as we do shows all the time. The thing that makes each Christmas Show a little crazier than the others we do is that this holiday extravaganza involves a large number of childre...

Oh, my. Maybe I'm a sucker for Christmas. Although I find that hard to believe given how many Christmas plays and musicals I've spent many autumns directing.
I'd call this awful. But that would be a disservice to the word "awful". These supposed fan girls of Windows Phone 7 are probably doing more harm to Windows Phone 7 and the concept of fan boys and fan girls than anyone could imagine.
James Kendrick has a nice thought provoking piece up entitled, Who really needs a stinking tablet, anyway? Don't think JK has gone over the edge.
Sling Media's strategy seems confusing to me at times. If you have a Slingbox you can view video from your TV on a device, in most cases with a SlingPlayer App.
Don't go looking for a Microsoft Surface 2.0 Table under your tree this holiday season, unless you're a business that might want to install them in your casino, hospital or store.
