Renew! Renew! …my iPhone!

So, you know what’s fun? When your smartphone, for no apparent reason, decides to have a complete operating system collapse. I managed to renew, restore and refresh it to factory settings and instead of restoring a backup, I started fresh. I know people say it, but it really is like having a brand new phone (that’s pre-smeared with your own finger grease).

Wednesday night is our standing “ürb is tired of cooking, so we’re going out to eat” night, and often we can rope a friend or two into joining us. We were lucky enough to have some amazingly non-humid weather, so...

gadgets: Netflix on iPhone/iPod Touch

That sound you may have just heard was the sound of office productivity dropping… or perhaps increasing. Thanks to a tweet from Dave Zatz of Zatz Not Funny! I discovered that Netflix has finally released their app*–initially just for iPad–for...

gadgets: video chat is cool now?

Not that this is really news, but I bought the new iPhone. I maintain, however, that it wasn’t really my fault! I was at home not feeling very well the day of the release and after I finally got out...

on the elevator: blondist

I was on the elevator a few minutes ago to let a new employee in through security. I had my coffee in one hand, iPhone in the other. We have wi-fi in the building and I was being an obsessive...

By now you’ve seen this video, or at least one of your friends has sent you the link to Single Ladies Devestation, but in case you haven’t…

etiquette: telephone 101

Just a quick informal poll: You’re calling someone for the first time who has no reason to expect a phone call from you. Once they answer, how would you–the caller–begin your part of the call?

dating: there’s an app for that

The other day MM told me about this new app for the iPhone from Intelius called Date Check: “Date Check is like having a private investigator in your purse,” John Arnold, co-founder of Intelius and executive vice president of business...

phone: Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam…

Quick question: What the heck is up with callers/spammers being allowed to report stuff like this as their caller ID? It would figure on a day that I’m ranting about craigslist spam, I’d get this call while leaving the office....

iPhone: did you mean…?

I dunno what’s up with this one. I’ve had some interesting on-the-fly spelling corrections from my iPhone recently, but in the midst of typing the word having, it offers to correct it to Jacobs… Ok, then! I realize it was...

internet: tethered

My addiction got the better of me yesterday and before I left the office, I looked up information on enabling tethering on my iPhone. It was one of the features announced, but not enabled, at the last big iPhone brouhaha....

food: how-to-cook on your iPhone

Ok, now the iPhone Kindle application is earning its keep–even though it was already free. As mentioned before, The Cook’s Illustrated How-To-Cook Library is freely available from Amazon’s kindle and it’s big. I’m already a big fan of Cook’s Illustrated...

gadgets: mini-Kindle?

So maybe I don’t need to get a Kindle just yet. It looks like Amazon very quietly pushed out an application to the iTunes store within the last day or so. Free for iPhone/iPod Touch and syncs up with your...

snow: SNOW!!!

I should have had faith. I did my snow dance last night, even dreamed of snow among other things and woke up to… nothing. No snow outside, just a faint white dusting of salt that had been forced into a...
