The app that would get me to buy an iPhone...
I’m afraid to go look in the App Store, because it might be a real iPhone app and I might be kicked out of the ninja camp for talking like a pirate all the time. Doh! Although, it probably wouldn’t be too hard to write one for Windows Mobile. I’ll add it to the long, long list of code that I’ll write...

South Park mobile business model?
Microsoft Details How to Port iPhone Apps to Windows Mobile 1. Write an iPhone app. 2. ... 3. Profit! Heh.

I wonder how much visual appeal had to the need for this instead of old-fashioned barcodes? If we can process these...

Voice Command: FORMAT C: [ENTER]
Well, that’s how the joke used to go about Vista voice command... Apparently somebody thought it would be fun to actually implement something similar in their mobile o/s. On purpose or not. Heh. The bug can hardly be called a security problem, given it requires access to the handset, but the fact that...

No. Yes. Zune!
As if I have to answer, but... Every dumb yuppie poser has an iPod. Your parents and grandparents have iPods. Do you really want to be like them? Or are you a rebel, a hipster, the first on your block to have something different? Zune's New Tune (Forbes.com) No. Yes. Zune, Zune, Zune!* Sara Itani (17yoa...

Fashionable PCs? How about...?
While I'm not opposed to sleek, sexy computing power, there are other priorities that I'd like addressed... Typical consumers simply purchased their devices out of necessity, but the scales are beginning to tip with demand growing for hardware that performs well, but looks good at the same time. As the...
