iPhone Needs a New Home

I'd have loved for this post to be the introduction of our latest iPhone application. An application that introduces a new -default- optional home screen.

48 hours with a Palm Pre

[Note: I have written this quickly and will clean it up over the next few days. I wanted to get some thoughts down prior to the launch.

Jon Lax chats with BNN about the Palm Pre

Yesterday Jon visited the BNN studios to chat about the Palm Pre. For those not in the know, it launches today.

I want my scrollwheel back!

Two steps forward, one step back. That's how I feel about the crappy media scrubbing interface built into the iPhone, iPod touch, and I guess pretty much all touch screen-based media devices.

Don’t you know this Canada Post?

First off I need to commend Canada Post on improving their Web site. I can actually find out what a stamp costs for the 4 times a year I send a letter.

iPhone GUI PSD 3.0

Along with Apple's official release of the new iPhone 3.0 software came a number of new graphic GUI elements. We've been holding off updating the Photoshop file until we could properly implement the additions.

Boxee, Me & Free TV
