Game Changing? More like ground-breaking, revolutionary, and any other adjective you can imagine!

To say that today’s WWDC keynote was merely “game-changing” doesn’t cover the full scope of what we just witnessed. I haven’t seen a company on a roll like this in a long time. How Apple has managed to not only revolutionize the computer, smartphone, and tablet industry but to single-handedly keep “one-upping” themselves is amazing. Not only have they defined where the bar for smartphones and tablets are, they’ve outdone themselves yet again. Three major product announcements were made today by Apple: OS X Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud. While this blog won’t focus on the particulars of Lion (other than their phenomenal $29.99 price tag!) we will cover the two biggest changes to mobile in awhile. First up: iOS 5. Hit the link at the break to read what’s new in Apple’s latest and greatest iteration yet. (more…)

Seems like the folks at this is my next got a tip this morning that iOS 5 will feature some pretty radical changes. First and foremost (the most important in my opinion) is a revamped notification system. Among other changes are a BBM style messaging service, widgets, and a new lock screen. Obviously for those who listen to the podcast, these are changes that we’ve been begging Apple to make for quite some time. Thought all of this information sounds great, there’s no real way to know for sure just what Apple has in store for us today at WWDC. Luckily Chris and I will be covering the event so check back for more updates as the day goes on. Hit the source after the break for a full breakdown of what the guys think we can expect at WWDC today! (more…)

iOS 4.3.3 is out. Data trackers everywhere weep.

It seems iOS 4.3.3 is out today and is fixing all of the data tracking issues we mentioned in the blog (as did others). This little update will not only delete the cache on your local machine, but on the phone altogether once you disable location services. Apple can put this very mild problem at bay now and focus on more important things like June’s WWDC.

Have you seen this company?


RIM is a smartphone company that dominated the market from 2004-2009 but has been missing since. They’ve released some of the world’s best smartphones but have had trouble competing with Apple and Google as the smartphone race heated up. After the release of the original iPhone in 2007 it has been a tough road for them. Their answer to the iPhone 4? (more…)

Heads up Android this one is gonna sting

It’s nothing personal, and hate is a strong word… but there is something seriously lacking with the Android experience right now. I don’t think that fundamentally Android is a bad idea, I just think there is something on the execution end that isn’t translating to the great user experience that is so vital for smartphones. Steve Jobs called it “fragmentation.” I call it too many greedy companies. Allow me to explain. (more…)
