Can Flubber Protect an iPhone SE from a 100 FT Drop Test?!

flub

So apparently, flubber is now a thing you can make at home. Sadly, it will not become sentient like the classic Jerry Lewis and Robin Williams’ movie. What it WILL do might impress you, though, as someone encased an iPhone SE in the stuff and then dropped it off a building. Now if you’ll excuse […]

So Fallout: Shelter has become the new IT phone to game(sadly, only for iPhones right now), and if you haven’t played it yet, pics like this should help change that. Yup, things are perfect alright.

Editor’s note: Be sure to read my note at the end of the post. On Friday, cellular carrier T-Mobile released the widely anticipated iPhone 5 to their customers.

Five Reasons Pinterest Doesn’t Suck

pinterest-cake

Okay, I’m going to be the first to admit it. There’s quite a few things I don’t like about Pinterest. I’ve written about it elsewhere, but I think I may have given the wrong impression. It’s not that I think Pinterest sucks. On the contrary: I think it’s awesome. I spend an inordinate amount of […]

The AMAZING iOS 6 Maps [Pics]

Stockholm's New Coordinates

One of the best things to come out of Apple’s iPhone 5 and iOS 6 launch has arguably been their new map system. And by best, if you are an Android user,  you finally get the one-over on all your Mac-touting hipster friends. The complaint by users world-wide has centered on the sheer inaccuracy of […]

Why I’m Not Standing With the iPhone Crowd

Today, I am not standing in line anywhere for an iPhone. It’s expected to be close to 100F here in North Carolina, and even though I’m sans child, I have no inclination to do such a thing, nor do I harbor feelings of jealousy against the people who have ordered and can afford these new […]

Your Next iPhone?

So someone leaves a phone on a bar, someone else picks it up and plays with it, and the next thing you know Gizmodo is taking it apart and declaring that this disguised iPhone is a test model of the not-yet-released 4G iPhone. They’ve delivered many of the features people have been waiting for—that damn […]

A Date with a Dragon Down the Carpal Tunnel

So you might have noticed that I’ve gone quiet the last couple of weeks. All signals have been cut, so to speak, since I’ve got the geeky equivalent of a mogul skier’s torn ACL: that is, carpal tunnel syndrome (or, perhaps, RSI). It blows. In every respect it sucks. It’s all-encompassing pain, and it’s a […]

Android Hits 20,000 Apps; Doubles Output in Last Five Months

Yes, we’ve all heard the buzz about Android.  But time after time, consumers have reiterated: it’s the apps that have lead to Apple’s grip on the market. We know it’s not the service, because Apple has been outed again and again for their lackluster coverage, locked-in AT&T contracts, and app store handling. Sure, there’s a […]

The End Of The Mouse Is Nigh?

In 1963, while working at Stanford University, Dr. Douglas Engelbart invented the mouse. By 1970, he had successfully applied for and received the US patent for this revolutionary device, but would never receive a single penny in royalties for his creation. His patent expired in 1987, which was a year or two before the explosion […]

Could we be about to see a pre-paid iPhone?

By Mark O’Neill Italy could prove to be the turning point for the Apple iPhone. Vodafone and Telecom Italia have announced that they have both won contracts to bring the iPhone to Italy – the first time that two competing networks will sell the iPhone in the same country at the same time – and […]

Find that catchy tune with your iPhone

By Ilya Kochanov Contributing Writer, [GAS] Sometimes hearing a song on the radio is simply not enough. You want to go home and “acquire it via the method of your choosing”. Therein lies the problem: you don’t know the name or artist; and rather than Googling the lyrics of said music, you’d rather cook up […]
