I’m increasingly finding that Apple’s control of my information in a closed fashion is preventing me from getting the utility that I need from my devices for every day use + I’m also starting to get worried about device and media portability for the future.

  In my experience with the original iPad, reading in bed was made easier when you had the iPad within a case where the back of the iPad was covered so that it wouldn’t slip from your hands, for the Alu surface can be quite slippery and cold to the touch. With the launch of […]

I’ve noticed a bug on my iPhone running 4.0.2 that could potentially end up being expensive… I have data roaming turned off and for the most part it works. However, when I fired up the Amazon Kindle app, it seemed to synchronize no problem (not sure if the Kindle app is at fault or if […]
