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
I haven’t heard of many iPad 2 cases that will hold all of your technology equipment together in one case. I went searching for one that could hold everything I needed to carry around and I think I have stumbled upon one of the best. Meet the new Wallet Case for iPad 2 from Happy Owl Studio.
They also had a wallet case for the original iPad that … Read More
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.

While ever popular on computers, reading multiple RSS feeds is visually equal to that of reading a bland web page … Read More
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.

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.

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

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.
