Michael Arrington: “Nokia and Symbian are Irrelevant”

I’m glad to know that others agree with my point on other mobile device and OSes. I’ve owned all the brands of smart phones, Nokia included. For me, the AppStore and ability to attract developers make Apple the game changer. From Forbes Magazine: Eventually the iPhone bigots will get to you, as they did to […]

Today’s a Game Changing Day for the Mobile Market!

This is a huge day. Apple has done what Palm, RIM, Microsoft, Motorola, SonyEricson,and Nokia have not: they have delivered a compelling mobile platform that matches sexy hardware with a functional operating system PLUS attracted developers PLUS created a true shopping / marketplace experience for users like me who want to use and buy mobile […]

Storage to Match Small Form-Factor Mobile Devices

Seeing Samsung‘s next-generation 256 GB SSD makes my mind contemplate the mobile devices just over the horizon. A 1.8 inch solid state drives with the capacity that was in servers not all that long ago. But the performance is perhaps more impressive: sequential data reads at 200MB per second, and writes at 160MB per second. […]

I loved that it wasn’t encoded with hard-core HTML and digital tracking codes back to the mothership to see the precise second I opened the message. It was simple — a respectable sized […]

Sometimes, Blogs Reminds Me Why

I had to re-read my blog post on the iPhone. I had to remember why I took the phone back. Now I remember. I’ll wait. Although, it was nice to see that when I was playing with my wife’s iPhone last weekend, I noticed that the end a sentence and double space will insert a […]
