Forget the iPhone, all you need is an iPod Touch (Download Squad)

Aug 29th 2008 10:22AM "With the ubiquity of wifi hotspots, particularly in major cities,"...

That should read, "only in major cities". And the wifi triangulation is worthless outside of major cities as well. It always shows me at least 10 miles the wrong way.

Redesign giveaway: HTC's new Shift UMPC (Engadget)

Apr 15th 2008 8:10AM I'm pretty sure I'd use it to watch strictly educational material such as TED speeches, scientific research papers, and...porn.

Live from the Comcast keynote at CES (Engadget)

Jan 8th 2008 1:38PM 1000 HD Choices? That's good because right now they don't have any. I've downloaded videos that have less compression artifacts than any of Comcast's HD channels. I'd switch to satellite in a second if I could get OTA channels where I live. Don't even get me started on Comcast's customer service.

Nov 25th 2007 12:03PM I would hack this thing so bad!

Mobile Minute News: speech to text, memory management, and mobile search (Download Squad)

Jul 16th 2007 1:59PM The main problem I've found with the fancy iPhone style launchers is they're disappointing. You feel like you're using something well designed...then you launch something and BAM you're back to the badly thought out WM6 programs.

Anything iPhone can do, you can do better - Mobile Minute (Download Squad)

Jul 2nd 2007 10:54AM Now all we have to do is make WM6 not freeze, change between apps quickly and easily, not require us to manage memory manually, and make smooth screen transitions.

My main hope for the iPhone is that it forces more developers to think of mobile users when they design their sites (or forces Opera to bust out the real hotness with a native WM app not a slow java app). And I hope it forces Microsoft to do more than just a minor upgrade to Windows Mobile for the first time in a decade.

Verizon's entire EV-DO network leaps to Rev. A (Engadget)

Jul 2nd 2007 9:27AM Does anyone feel like we might have been getting screwed? "Oh, competition? let me just flip this switch here!" Why weren't we getting these speeds already? It seems a little convenient that Verizon waited to do this right with the iPhone launch. And AT&T didn't upgrade EDGE until Apple forced them to.

Jun 30th 2007 8:36PM I want an iPhone because gadgets are supercool!

AT&T tuning EDGE network for iPhone? (TUAW.com)

Jun 5th 2007 3:00PM Wow, that's really weird because I felt like my old Cingular 2125 was going faster than it used to. I just assumed it was me being crazy or a minor upgrade on the network. EDGE is still too slow to do full html pages like the iPhone's suppose to though.

Why don't you pay for software? (Download Squad)

May 22nd 2007 1:53PM When I was on Windows I almost never paid for any shareware programs or things like that. There were always annoying bugs that made the program not worth the 40-50$ price tag. It just felt like the developers saw dollar signs and sent out a piece of junk software. On Mac it feels totally different. A lot of the developers seem to put out free (or full version trials) of really good software that it seems like they cared enough to make and the money's a side benefit. I've paid for or donated to Delicious Library, Disco, Cha-Ching, MacPAR deluxe, SQLGrinder, Transmit, Unison, and Parallels. And unlike some Windows programs, I'm actually please with my purchases and don't feel ripped off (Nero).
