Facebook's at It Again: More Changes, More Grumbling (Switched)

Feb 11th 2010 8:21PM I love how people are replying here with complaints - like this is facebook and you guys have control or something... LOL

OpenOffice.Org demos ribbon-style UI prototype (Download Squad)

Aug 6th 2009 11:13PM Same here...

I've used MS Office 2007 (Mainly Word) and have found that I liked the ribbon....

Here's the catch - if you're a regular user of the old "tried and true" method - and have used it forever and a day... the transition will be tough. The longer you've used the old way, the harder the transition.

If you're not that used to the old way - the transition will be easy for you, and in fact - if you're new to MS Word or Office, period - it will be easier for you to learn with the ribbon.

Aug 1st 2009 1:52AM Will this work with gizmo like gv will?

I never completed getting a number for grandcentral, so am still locked out of gv. :(

I'd love to be making free calls.

Bubble Boom - chain reaction Time Waster (Download Squad)

Aug 1st 2009 1:35AM I was going to mention boomshine also...

But there's also "Chain Rxn" on Facebook.

I prefer Boomshine - no "lifes" - better, more soothing music and sound, and more colorful. :)

What Apple could learn from Palm's webOS (Engadget)

Jan 15th 2009 3:30PM With the exception of a few things - I'd have to agree with this article.

Keyboard - I don't need it. I like the keyboard. A good accessory or add on should be available though. One with a keyboard would be good too - but Apple doesn't and didn't make phones exclusively. They are new to the market, and it's entirely possible it could happen yet. Doubtful, but possible. (Though texting while doing other things is difficult. A Good Voice to SMS program would be good.)

Form Factor - I like iPhone's form factor. In Fact - Love it. Simple, clean, easy, and a good fit. No change needed.

Gmail? Just because Google has a different style than everyone else - doesn't mean Apple has to make it just like it. Apple has 3rd party development. Google is a competitor. Google has developers. Let THEM design an app to do gmail right.

Does that claim mean that G1 should have complete and full interoperability with MobileMe? What's good for the goose is good for the gander!

Engadget? Yeah, Not so much.

Copy and paste comes to the iPhone, unofficially (Download Squad)

Jan 8th 2009 11:36AM Double Tap. Double tap where you want to start and then hold and swipe.

Or - a multifinger. Insert cursor, tap second finger and go....

btw - this was out a couple weeks ago.

There's no setting to change the speed of that animation?

Android: Hands-on with the T-Mobile G1 (Download Squad)

Oct 23rd 2008 9:45AM I liked what Bart said in response to Todd.

I just bought an iPhone from a friend. I am not an apple "fanatic" (though I am a fan.) I use Windows XP at home and am perfectly happy with it. I had a Motorola Q9h, and loved it. But it wasn't touch screen, and didn't offer the browsing capabilities I was looking for. Even with the new SkyFire browser.

I am also not a google fanatic. Some people just go nuts over Google. Gmail this, Gmail that... Google Calendar, Google Docs.... oh my God if Google goes down, their world falls apart.

I like Google, but use Yahoo for the majority of my stuff. My entire email world is on Yahoo - and I totally prefer that interface over Gmail.

So asking if the G1 is an iPhone killer, isn't so much about comparing it to Apple and Apple's better, etc....

It's about having the latest Gadgets. The ones that are the most powerful and the most fun, as well as being the most useful.

It sounds that Android will be a bit like Windows Mobile - but better due to the openness, but they've designed the phone to work more similar to iPhone to attract them. At this point - I probably want to stick to the iPhone. Well, especially since I'm with AT&T and in contract, and TMobile's coverage SUCKS in my area. LOL
