Seventeen hours have passed since I upgraded to the new iPhone. Can it possibly be too early for me to make sweeping generalizations and pass judgment? No. I didn’t think so either. The folks at Apple sort of painted themselves into a corner on this one. The original iPhone was just so incredibly, amazingly, stupendously… Read more »

I’ve had a Blackberry Pearl for a few months now and, in general, I love it. It’s a great phone. I love that I can check scores on ESPN and use Google maps and — as a surprise bonus — I can send and receive phone calls and text messages. Here’s what bugs me: The… Read more »
The first thing I did after crossing the marathon finish line was call my girlfriend so she could come get me. It was the last call I would make with my trusty RAZR. My hands were slick with sweat and the phone was coated with the salt and grime that had evaporated from my body… Read more »

This was probably the thirtieth time this has happened o me. I was strolling through the Century City Mall when I found myself walking towards… Read more »
A recent survey of 6,000 people by recruitment company TMP Worldwide found that irritating mobile phone rings are the top workplace nuisance, followed by malfunctioning equipment such as photocopiers, fax machines and printers. I recently finished my first stint as a contract programmer. (Although I was employed for a few months in 2000 on a… Read more »
“It’s the interface, stupid!” I got in a discussion recently about text messaging on mobile phones. I don’t understand why so much money is being pumped into this concept.
