  • My Day Without An Apple Watch

    My Day Without An Apple Watch

    6:45 am: I wake up and look over at my wrist. There is no Apple Watch on it. The disappointment flows through my body like the Nile River.   7:30 am: I rub my wrist at the phantom feel of the Watch. It need it. I need to feel it tap tap tap me ever

    Cutting the Cord on Cable

    Hypothetically speaking, let’s say that you’ve been paying roughly a car payment every month to a giant monopoly for most of your adult life to get internet, cable and phone service. It’s not implausible, right? Many of us have done it. Comcast, for example, currently has 21.7 million video subscribers but that number will rise to 30

    A Novel List of Mobile Apps

    Perhaps you’ve read one of the millions of “Essential Apps” stories floating around the web. If so, you have likely noticed how they all seem to mimic each other without ever providing any information that you do not already know. “Did you know that Evernote is great? It’s essential! You need to have it! It will change your life!” Evernote

    Holy Shit, HP, What’s Up!

    Holy shit, have you seen this fucking thing? It’s the HP Sprout and where the fuck did it come from? It’s a computer with a 3D scanner and no keyboard and some sort of other stuff. Goddamn this thing is crazy. First HP was all like, “Yo, we made a 3D printer” and now this.

    Sony’s Playstation TV is a Waste of Money

    Imagine, if you will, that online gaming existed during the short-lived era of the Sega Dreamcast. What images come to mind? Choppy graphics? Easily dropped connections? Slow speeds? Now combine that with a amateurish, discarded Nintendo Wii-style UI and you have the Sony Playstation TV. This product is in no way ready for primetime. If anything, it

    Crash Test: More Thoughts on the iPhone 6

    After nearly a month of owning the iPhone 6, I’ve repeatedly been asked the same two questions: “Is it worth the upgrade?” and “What’s so special about it?” “It’s kind of like a bigger 5s,” I’d respond. Those who asked were typically disappointed and underwhelmed. There are plenty of positives about the 6. The screen, speaker and camera

    Crash Test: 72 Hours with the iPhone 6

    Chances are, if you are one of the 10 million+ people — you know, roughly the population of the Dominican Republic — who purchased an iPhone 6 this weekend, you already know what to expect from your phone. The other 7.115 billion people on earth, though, may have some questions about the next generation of Apple’s cash

  • Wish List: New Features for Apple’s Yosemite and iOS 8

    Wish List: New Features for Apple’s Yosemite and iOS 8

    When Tim Cook steps on stage at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts on September 9, he will likely share the expected news of the iPhone 6, which will come in two bigger form factors, and the long-rumored iWatch. Wearable technology and bigger phones always seemed kind of like superfluous upgrades but, as a recent Fitbit convert, the iWatch

  • Tesla to Release a Car That People Can Afford

    Tesla to Release a Car That People Can Afford

    Elon Musk, purveyor of awesomeness and runner of Tesla Motors, continues to kick ass. The technology pioneer and early adopter recently began raising $1.6 billion to fund the Gigafactory. Then he released Tesla’s patents to encourage innovation. Next up, he donated $1 million to Matthew Inman‘s Tesla Museum. He may be dealing with the setback of douchebag politicians and lobbyists banning
