For every new gadget that appears on the market, there are millions of people that are perfectly happy with said product, and then there are the others. There is that small percentage that speaks out more than everyone....

Myspace was popular when I was just starting middle school, so in the years that I actually cared about talking to other people my age, social networking was right there with me.....

iPhone4S-Siri

One of the major things since the iPhone 4S launch is the question of whether or not Siri would be ported to earlier generation device. It was determined that none of the hardware on the iPhone 4S made it impossible to port Siri to the iPhone 4. Instead, it was a couple of lines of code that was needed in order for Siri to work on the iPhone 4. Since then, many people have been claiming that....

When the beta’s of iOS 5 came out, I will be the first to admit that I was very skeptical about newsstand. I would have much preferred the concept built into iBooks and then iBooks be added to the software. But there it was when iOS 5 was released. I kind of stared at the app for a while on my home screen, not really sure of what to do with it. I couldn’t put it in a folder like....
