Over the years, they’ve been improving it quite a bit, and theContinue reading “The HTC Blog Helps Make Sense Of Sense”

An Android Use For The iGo Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard

One of the biggest challenges that I’ve been facing with my experiment to not use my laptop for any personal Internet use is with text input.

A Return To Mobile Blogging

A long while ago, I was really obsessed with mobile blogging – that is, blogging from a mobile device. I kept trying from my Symbian-powered smartphones, but kept coming up short. Unfortunately, software was the main limiting factor. There simply are not any great solutions for blogging from a Symbian-powered smartphone, in my experience.

All Smartphones Should Have A Desktop Dock

The Google Nexus One is one of the most talked-about smartphones lately, and for good reason. I have yet to find anyone who dislikes it, and even better, Google released a desktop dock for the Nexus One recently.
