Apple Fixes Terrible UI Design

June 2nd, 2013 · No Comments

Perhaps someone from Apple heard Jobs screaming from his grave or read my blog post and decided to fix the terrible layout of the audio buttons on the iPhone lock screen.  I believe it was just fixed in iOS 6.1.4. See this post on how they screwed up at one point. Glad to see it […]

Gree Pulls The Plug On OpenFeint

November 19th, 2012 · No Comments

This was not unexpected however I think this will backfire on them especially given the short one month notice.

The reality has been coming closer and closer with the various rumor sites announcing various things. The latest is right along the right lines Apple should be heading down. And hopefully they are. If only […]

New Apple iTouch

September 9th, 2008 · No Comments

Great, 9 days after I purchased my iTouch, Apple announces a new one. I should be able to return mine however to get the new one. In my previous post I mentioned the only negative I had about the device, however in the meantime, I found another very annoying problem with the device. And that […]

iTouch

September 2nd, 2008 · 4 Comments

Writing this from my new iTouch. Really nice device as one would expect from Apple. The only negative I have to say about it so far is that it only supports one running application at a time. To me that is just about unacceptable. For instance if I start an IM application and then switch […]
