Did Microsoft Just Beat Apple To The Punch?
by on September 20, 2011

It’s so rare to talk about Microsoft on this blog that I secretly think there’s a little script that scrubs out any mention of our little friend up in Redmond, WA. But regardless of any devious gremlins that live in the blog, there was a lot of news that happened at last week’s BUILD conference that took place in Anaheim, the biggest of which was the announcement of Windows 8. … Read More

They also had a wallet case for the original iPad that … Read More

Lost Your Dice? Newton’s Dice HD Is Here To Help
by on September 18, 2011

I am a huge fan of ‘limitless’ applications. Apps that are useful in many, many situations. IsoCards reproduced a deck of cards and I fell in love with it. I believe Newton’s Dice HD may have done the same with dice.

Created by developer Mark Hessburg, Newton’s Dice HD is a 3D dice simulator that does its job quite well. I wanted to put the app to the test so … Read More

Review: Vaja Leather Smart Grip Case for iPad

There are a lot of cases on the market now for the iPad 2 that protect the back of the iPad and are compatible with the Apple Smart Cover. The new Vaja Smart Grip Case is one made of a luxurious, grainy cow-hide leather that feels and looks very sleek.

Flip Through Your News With Flipboard

For years the newspaper and magazine has been the go-to way to finding news. Newspapers being local, while magazines are coined as ‘personalized’. The reality is that those magazines aren’t personalized per-se, they’re more restricted to a specific category of news. The first successful personal news source is RSS. While ever popular on computers, reading multiple RSS feeds is visually equal to that of reading a bland web page … Read More

Review: Crimson Steam Pirates
by on September 6, 2011

As posted earlier in the news stream, Bungie Aerospace’s latest iOS game Crimson: Steam Pirates is now out in the app store and I carved some time out of the Labour Day weekend to give it a spin.

As always, here’s the top line. It’s addictive, clever and awesome. But it’s a lot more than meets the eye, so let’s dive in a bit more and see what lies beneath its … Read More

Review: Pad&Quill Contega Case for iPad 2
by on August 25, 2011

I was in the market for a new iPad case and a friend suggested the Pad&Quill Contega Case for  iPad 2. So I decided to check it out.

Previously I was using a Green iPad 2 Smart cover and two screen protectors on the front and back of my iPad. This worked well but I really wanted more protection with a sleek design.


The Contega iPad 2 … Read More

Changing Places: Googlorola, WebOS and Why It Doesn’t Matter
by on August 23, 2011

What a week for news in the mobile space. Google buys Motorola Mobility, HP abandons webOS, and everybody else in the mobile space seemingly scrambling to make heads or tails of it. Everyone except Apple, at least. But what does it all mean? This is worthy of taking a quick break from writing about iOS to address.

The Motorola Acquisition Means Little in Google’s Android Strategy

As Larry Page openly admitted, the … Read More

ZAGGfolio Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad 2 Review
by on August 17, 2011

The last time we reviewed a Bluetooth keyboard was the ZAGGmate, which was neat because it was the first of its kind. However, that keyboard was cramped and had tiny uncomfortable keys. The latest folio case is their ZAGGfolio for the iPad 2, a carbon fibre-look case that houses your iPad 2 and a thin Bluetooth keyboard.

Taking the ZAGGfolio out of the box reveals a sheet … Read More
