iPhone 4 rocketing to the top of Flickr's camera list (

Apr 19th 2011 3:25PM There are 147 different models of Canon PowerShot cameras (yes, really). Combine their separate totals and compare that to the iPhone 4.

iAd Gallery breaks App Store guidelines - so what? (

Apr 7th 2011 11:01AM Actually, Apple has always maintained that its apps that are obtained from the App Store don't use private APIs or frameworks and comply with all of the developer guidelines. That this app is different is a big deal, no matter how much you use your Apple Can Do No Wrong goggles.

Amazon launches 'cloud locker' music service (

Mar 29th 2011 11:23AM Apple clearly has exactly the same legal view. After all, you can stream music you've transferred to iDisk. You just can't do it unless you pay $99 a year.

TUAW's Daily App: Lane Splitter (

Mar 18th 2011 10:31AM The problem for motorcyclists is that you have plenty of brethren who don't do so safely. Recently, I was traveling on a highway in which all three lanes were moving at about 10 MPH less than the posted speed limit, and I was passed by a lane-splitting motorcyclist traveling about 80 MPH. That's happened more than a few times. It becomes difficult, then, to separate riders lane-splitting to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning from riders who do it because they think their time is more valuable than mine.

If you don't have an iPhone: Apple ads posted to YouTube (

Mar 18th 2011 10:12AM The app store ad seems a bit strange, too. There's an official Delta app for Android that appears to do all the same stuff the iOS app does. Starbucks is still working on an Android app, but there's a third party app for enabling mobile purchases that appears to do even more than the official Starbucks iOS app. Clearly there are better iOS-only alternatives Apple could have chosen.

And iBooks is horrible. Everyone knows its horrible.

Android vs. iPhone in 'flawed' mobile browser performance test (

Mar 18th 2011 9:32AM I sure wish people would stop quoting Gruber as proof of anything. The next Apple decision or product he criticizes will be the first (and no, being critical at first and then flip-flopping after Apple reaches out doesn't count). As for the Blaze analysis, ask yourself this - how would you respond if the results were reversed?

TweetCaster Pro: An alternative to the 'd**kbar' in the Twitter app (

Mar 7th 2011 10:00AM I don't like the Quick Bar either, but unless Twitter figures out some way to make money, the best Twitter client in the world is useless.

MLB At Bat 11 apps for iPhone, iPad now available (

Feb 26th 2011 8:17PM This app includes Gameday Audio, a $20 value. And yes, you have to pay that $20 every year, too. The app is a bargain, if anything.

Apple beats Kindle for e-books in the UK (

Feb 19th 2011 2:30PM Amazon doesn't win either way if Apple doesn't change the new rules.

Apple beats Kindle for e-books in the UK (

Feb 19th 2011 2:27PM @Charli you do realize that 30% of a Kindle title is all of Amazon's revenue, right? So no, they can't afford it.
