I think most of the readers of this blog have a Google wave invite by this time, if they actually want one that is. I think most of you are much like me and haven’t done a whole lot with it yet either. There is a Google Wave guide written by Gina Trapani, ie LifeHacker, and it looks really good. She is selling an e-book for a very reasonable $6 but more importantly she has the whole book on-line for free so you can get a full look at it to see if you want it.

Do you have a Storm 8 game? or 12? I just saw over at Macworld blog that they have been accused of stealing phone numbers. This had come up before and they claimed it was a bug. Kind of an odd and potentially lucrative bug. For me it boils down to did they use the information for profit after they discovered the “bug” or did they destroy it? An “oversight” allowed the bug to get back in to a release.

Found an interesting article over at Mac Rumors. Seems AdMob and advertising company measures the OSes that hit their ads on the web. The numbers may not be 100% accurate but I am guessing they probably trend pretty accurate. I have no idea what the sample size for this company is over a month or how big their foot print is. Apple took over the number 1 spot from Feburary to August. (more…)

Metro Paris is the first augmented reality app to hit the app store. Finally an augmented reality app! Without a doubt augmented reality is just plain cool. To be able to see data points overlaid on your screen in real time is pretty awesome. What really makes this work is the digital compass included in the 3GS (sorry augmented reality apps will not work for 2G/3G/iPod Touch owners). (more…)

Update: I did a review if you would like to see it go here.
Currently the Pearson Algebra Prep app is on the front page of the App Store. Some of you may find this exciting or not. The app costs $2.99. I am toying with doing a review on this, it is just a bit expensive as I don’t need the app myself and my children are a loooog ways off from needing it. I took a screen shot incase you still want proof later on. (more…)
I love great deals (as most people do) and I am frequent visitor of the Cheapskate. Today,(well technically yesterday) he tells us that by downloading Big Kahuna Reef for free, via Amazon, you will also get a free five dollar MP3 credit to use in the Amazon MP3 store. (more…)

I’ve been waiting for 3.1 to come out before jailbreaking my iPhone again, but I think this might have just pushed me over the edge. It’s called Movement, and in a nutshell it’s an app that allows you to arrange your iPhone apps from your computer, but the catch is it only works on a jailbroken iPhone. Currently doing the cumbersome act of hold, wait for wiggle, then drag the stupid app across 8 flippin pages on your iPhone only have it push another app to the next page is getting old. I can tell you that me, and a couple of buddies have been talking about a feature like this from the time the App Store was birthed over a year ago, so a feature like this is a long time coming. It has been rumored as of late that iTunes 9 may have a feature like this in the works, but it may be too little too late. (more…)

The title says it all folks. It’s been rumored the 3GS was capable of handling HD video, and now we know for sure it can. This is like at Christmas time when you were a kid, and you thought all the presents were opened, but during the clean up of wrapping paper shrapnel you discover another unopened gift! This is great news, and hopefully Apple will announce they’ll be enabling this feature soon. More info can be viewed at the Engadget site.

There are reasons as to why manufacturers allow users to password protect their electronic devices. As annoying as they are, it assists in keeping your hardware from being used when jerks decide to steal it. Take this arse for instance. (more…)
