The iPad as a Laptop Replacement – My 1 Week Experiment

Every day I seem to love my iPad more and more. I read a few reviews of people declaring that they could easily go iPad-only during their workday and not a miss a beat. I was a bit skeptical of that claim, so I decided that I would try to go iPad-only during my workday […]

The HTC Incredible Has Shown Me that Android is Now “Good Enough” to Compete

I’m now on my second Android phone and I have to say that Android has come a long way. When I first got my Nexus One, it wasn’t an iPhone killer by any means (some of my early thoughts on the Nexus One can be found here). In reading a few posts, this one by […]

Buying a Google Nexus One Unlocked is a Terrible Experience – Fixing It is Easy

I have had my Google Nexus One for about a day. And I’m getting ready to box it up and send it back to them. It’s not because I don’t like the device – it’s kind of wonky in terms of UI, especially if you’re an iPhone user, but it’s still a very good device […]

The Five Ecosystems I’m Watching in 2010 (iPhone, Facebook, Twitter, AppleTV, and Google)

I’ve been thinking about doing a 2010 predictions post for this year. In lieu of doing one, I thought I’d highlight the biggest platform battles that I find interesting in the upcoming year: Facebook vs Application Developers I (obviously) have a vested interest in how this plays out given my work with Serious Business. Nonetheless, […]

Google Nexus One Phone and Creating an Android Exemplar

I saw so many posts about the new Google Nexus phone (I liked the one on TC, so I’m linking to that one) that I wanted to post my quick thoughts. In the interest of fair disclosure, I used to work at Google back in the day and know and respect a lot of the […]

Making the iPhone More Social and Viral – We Need a Social Graph

I’ve been playing with a lot of really interesting iPhone apps lately (mostly games) and one thing I’m finally beginning to see is a more concerted effort by iPhone application developers to start to think about viral distribution. As far as I can tell, the best two ways to get distribution for your app are […]

My Search for the Best iPhone 3G Music Headset

I am a heavy iPhone user and I can’t get the factory issued iPhone earbuds to stay in my ear. I’ve spent the last few weeks trying out different headsets to figure out which ones might work better for me. I commute using public transportation at least 5 days a week, so the ideal headphones […]

Does the Blackberry Need a Better Browser?

I was on a plane earlier today sitting next to someone with an iPhone. One of the things I’ve been wondering a lot lately is whether RIM made a mistake by not investing more research and energy in making a better web browsing experience for the last few versions of the Blackberry. Whenever I talk […]

The iPod, the RAZR, and the Treo – One Icon and Two Also-Rans

I have to admit that I was actually pretty impressed with all of the new iPods that Apple released yesterday. Aside from the snafu around the dramatic price decrease in the iPhone, I’d have to say that it was a pretty successful announcement (even if the stock price did not seem to react favorably to […]
