Evening Laughs: Every tech commercial...

We live in an age of technological innovation where every year new wonders are introduced that change our everyday lives. Sadly, technology advertising hasn't necessarily kept up with the level of innovation. With just a few simple cliches, you too can write your own tech commercial. The folks o...

CodeRunner chases the location-based dream

CodeRunner is quite an app, and I almost don't want to tell you what it is before you try it. In fact, let's not. Just go download it from the App Store and experience it for yourself first. It's US$2.99, but if you've been following location-based iPhone games, you'll find the price worth the exp...

Concept case would turn your iPhone into a Leica

OK, so yes, this Leica i9 case for the iPhone 4 is still just a concept. You can't actually buy a case yet that fits around your iPhone and turns it into a Leica camera (though you can buy some nice lenses or an audio tape case). But this idea is just too cool to pass up. Outside of the standar...

Bluetooth headset comes with its own iPhone app

The Sound ID is a Bluetooth headset with its own iPhone app. EarPrint is an app created just to control the sound of the headset -- you can tweak the audio in and out, change volume, and even find a lost headset directly from the iPhone itself.

Of course, if you wan...

Washington Post on Apple and product placement

The Washington Post has an interesting article about all the 'free' product placement Apple has apparently received in TV shows and movies in recent years.

...all monetary amounts translate into Apple/computer/gadget purchases. Let me explain. A friend of mine told me he lost his wallet containing $300 on the bus the other day (he since recovered the wallet, cash and all). I then told a fellow Mac using friend about this unfortunate event, and the firs...
