Two new ways to “play” with Instagram

Check out these two very different, but equally adorable takes on bringing the Instagram logo to life. Actually, I suppose “life isn’t the best term for this first one, as it was created for a promotion for the upcoming stop-motion Zombie film “ParaNorman” by Laika Studios, and looks like something you might have dug up and then been forced to blow away with a shotgun. But next up is a decidedly cleaner, less rotten version... Read More

Games That Don’t Suck: Russian Dancing Men

Today’s game that doesn’t suck is the amazingly awesome (and hilariously bizarre) Russian Dancing Men (iTunes: 99¢ – Universal) , from SmashMouth Games. At its heart it’s basically a rhythm game where you need to tap one (or two) buttons at the appropriate time to help your character (a Russian Dance troupe leader) get his group safely over the various obstacles that a certain zombie leader left for them. But where I could never... Read More

iMiss Him Already

It seems like just yesterday we were speculating as to whether or not Steve Jobs might make a surprise appearance at the “Let’s Talk iPhone” event. Actually it WAS just yesterday, which is why the surprise news of Steve Jobs’ death today actually brought a little smile to my cynical lips. Given all the speculation over Steve’s health in recent years, I actually think the fact that he was able to pass away, far from... Read More

WWDC 2011: The Good The Bad, and the Meh

As with all big Apple events, I once again find people turning to me for my opinion on the announcements from Apple’s 2011 World Wide Developer’s Conference. Honestly I can’t blame them, as my opinion is often the only correct one when it comes to such things. I seem to have the uncanny ability to cut through the hype with laser beam-like precision, and somehow categorize the day’s events into one of three categories: Good,... Read More

Finally, a robot C3PO could could beat up

Behold Kazu Terasaki‘s latest creations, the Walking iPad and Walking iPhone. Sure, they’re adorable, but they’re not exactly going to give the T-1000 a run for its money any day soon. Suddenly I am a lot less fearful of the robot uprising, which as you know, was my number two fear, just behind the Zombie uprising. Looks like my fear of a Live Action “Shirt Tales” movie is the new number 2! [via everyone, but Engadget... Read More

Review: Novothink’s Surge solar iPhone charging case

Awww.. she could probably charge it from her smile alone… If you’re anything like me, odds are you’re worried about being able to charge your iPhone once the world ends via either a robot or zombie invasion. After the apocalypse, convenient access to AC power is likely going to be scarce, which is why I was excited to try out the Novothink Surge solar power iPhone charger/case. Read More  Read More

Prepare to be pulled over – Scosche unveils its iPad car mount

Oddly enough just yesterday morning I tried to put my iPad into a Magellan iPhone GPS cradle to see if I could use any core location-based navigation apps on the iPad, and the answer was unfortunately “No”. However, despite navigation apps apparently not being an option on the iPad, it looks like Scosche feels there will be enough demand from those people looking to Tweet and play Plants Vs Zombies while driving to create a car iPad... Read More

ATTENTION DEVELOPERS: Let me promote your app FOR FREE!

Because of my firm belief that you can never be spread too thin, I am looking into starting yet another side business. And while my other attempts at income (male model, retired millionaire) have proven somewhat less than successful, this one might actually have some legs, assuming I don’t get bored. I’m looking to create promotional video trailers for games and apps designed for the iPhone and iPad, and the good news is, I’m willing... Read More

Everything I want you to know about the iPad

I love you. You may recall when Apple first announced the iPad I was fairly dead set against getting it, more or less for one reason – no Netflix support. Well, guess who announced their iPad app a couple days ago, and guess who was waiting in line at Best Buy this morning? Yes, I’m not sure why I couldn’t get it into my head that Apple didn’t need to “build in” Netflix support – Netflix could at any time make... Read More
