Virtual Flowers for Mother’s Day?

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

I guess there might be some mothers out there who would appreciate virtual flowers on their smartphone. I don’t know any of them. If you haven’t already gotten your wife and/or mother suitable plant gifts, I think your time is better spent cooking and/or cleaning :)

Happy Mother’s Day

3G Coming to iPhone, Competition is coming too…

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

Just last week I sat in the car waiting for a ferry while Catherine sat beside me working on her laptop with a newly purchased 3G connection. It’s pretty cool. Since we work at home, taking a laptop on a trip is a carefully considered decision. If there are no anticipated waits, if there is no pressing business, then it could be like carrying around an 8 1/2 pound, three figure brick.

iPhone could go 3G soon and Nokia may beat them to the punch.

Nevermind the Bollocks, Here’s the iPhone…

britain-iphoneYou might have not noticed that iPhone went on sale in the UK recently. I didn’t. I’m sure it was a very life changing day for thousands of technophiles and sheep-like consumers within the UK.

There are some headlines hailing the launch as disastrous, one authorized dealer, Carphone Warehouse had a technical problem that stalled the complex transaction process. People also hailed the sales tally as underwhelming. The service provider, O2, is pointing out that it is the biggest sales weekend for a handheld device in the nation’s history.

I think the negativity was inevitable because of the simple fact that people are not lining up to be the first iPhone owners ever. In fact, the German launch occurred 18 hours earlier.
