    My new wheels... life is getting better.

    Picked me up a new (used) car on Monday. It's a 2010 Ford Focus. Got it to replace my 2000 Focus, which got squished. Not allowed (legally) to discuss all of the details until the case settles. Been laid up since 12/27 and having a car again (and the ability to walk) is really nice, let me...

    App developer type question...

    Just a curiosity question, if there are any devs hanging out. In an IOS app, can you package an updateable database with the app? I have a brilliant idea for an app. (unfortunately I have no idea how to program). Anywho...the app would need some sort of database to store info, that would need...

    So I'm watching the WWDC video last night and they were doing a demo on notifications. One of the guys was playing a game that looked quite fun. Anyone know what game it was?

    Where's the loyalty...where's the love?

    I've worked for (legally forbidden to mention their name) for 12 years. I asked some folks here about a comp pass to a trade show in Chicago. They said that they've never heard of any kind of comp ticket. They had nothing for me. Mentioned the show in casual conversation, to a vendor...an hour...

    The Glee Thread

    So...who do you think they're going to kill off next week on Glee? I'm thinking it might be Dave Karofsky. After rushing out on prom night, he either: a) recklessly smashes his car Or b) commits suicide Anyone?

    Interesting call with local Target store

    Last week I bought an iPad. This week, the iPad is $100 cheaper. Target has a "Price Match" guarantee, so I decided to check on the details. 1st I emailed them, through their website. Their answer: "We're able to make adjustments on sale merchandise if we advertise a lower price either the...

    Just had a wild idea...

    I'm sure I'm not the first one to think of it, but what the heck?!? ;) 1) Get the new HDMI out cable adapter when it comes out. 2) Hook iPhone to big TV in living room, point camera at couch. 3) FaceTime call brother in California. 4) GIANT (60") video conference! In HD no less...

    I sometimes wonder about their "experts" on the morning news.

    So I was on the couch, drinking coffee and watching the local morning news show. They had an "expert" come on and explain about the big Verizon iPhone news. During the interview, the topic of "Personal Hotspot" came up. Went something like this: Expert: With the Verizon iPhone, you'll be...

    Apple's new "Find my stolen SUV" app.

    http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Smartphone-app-helps-owner-track-stolen-car-112533134.html Local news played this story yesterday. I especially enjoyed when our "on the ball" newscaster reported that "It works with virtually ANY smartphone!" D'oh!

    Took me about 20 days, but I'm back!

    Used my latest upgrade to switch to an Android phone on October 10th. The Samsung Captivate to be specific. It was a good phone, had its good points/bad points, but ultimately I'm back on the iPhone. The phone itself was fun. I really liked the Android OS. Getting it to do what I wanted...

    a USB drive/hub question.....

    Calling all experts... :) Here's the scenario: Let's say that I had 2 or 3 external USB drives lying around the house. Can I take them, hook them up to a 5 port USB hub, then hook them to my PC and see all of the external drives at once? Not necessarily as one big drive, mind you.... but be...

    Thinking about jumping ship.... to an Android

    Bless me Steve Jobs, for I have sinned. I have been seriously looking at the Samsung Captivate. (Ruh roh) So I've been wanting a new phone and I'm still kind of leaning towards getting an Android phone. Still not 100% sure if I want to or not. Just looking for some opinions from you all on...

    Anyone use a PopBox?

    Have been doing some reading and I'm thinking about getting one. It's a home media center, does HD, plays network files including ISO files. Here's my thought... * Get a Popbox * Pick up two 2tb drives and a dual USB external enclosure. (to start) * Rip my DVDs into ISO files and cram them...

    Anybody iMovie'd yet?

    Since I have to live vicariously through all of you until I get a new phone, would love to see some iMovie videos done from the new phone/app. Anyone played around with it yet? Can we make an "official" iPhone iMovie thread? :)

    Oh Apple, you sneaky bastages!

    Kind of bummed about having to wait to get the iPhone 4, but figured that at LEAST I could play with iMovie while I'm waiting. But NOOOOOOOOOOOO! It's not compatible with the 3GS. Damn you Steve Jobs, damn your eyes! Why, oh why must you force me (against my will, mind you) to buy the new...

    Ok now... everybody feel sorry for me!

    Just stopped by the AT&T store on the way to work to ask some info about upggrading to the iPhone 4. Looks like I'm gonna have to wait. :( My phone is not eligible to upgrade at the $199 price, but Dad's is. They said I can use his upgrade without a problem, but.... When I upgrade...

    Don't know whether to laugh or to cry!

    SO last week, I decided to be a nice, adventurous kind of guy and fix Dad's broken iPhone. He dropped it and the glass broke. So I ordered up a new glass and digitizer kit. I tore it apart, got the old glass out, replaced it with the new set and put it all back together. I found out then...

    Someone answer a question for me....

    Took my broken iPhone to the Apple store today to have them look at it. The "Genius" took a small flashlight, looked at the dock connector and told me that it had been exposed to water and that they wouldn't do anything with it. Took it to the AT&T store and they did the same thing. About...

    Let the surgery begin.....

    Well, tomorrow actually. So Dad calls me a week or two go and asks "Do we have insurance on our iPhones?" right there I knew this phone call was going to go down hill. He dropped his iPhone under a truck and busted the glass. "Everything still works, it just has some big cracks in it!"...
