Apple Fail

I am an Apple fanboy, but like so many others, I'm pretty pissed off at them their rejection of the Google Voice app. If you don't know what I'm talking about, let my friend Dave explain in 90 Second Tech...

I would never have predicted it a month ago, but I am considering iPhone alternatives.

Sharing an Obsession

Thanks a lot Dave.

Movie Karaoke

This is pretty cool, but I doubt that it's will have the success of the Wii or even traditional karaoke. But it is an interesting idea.

Navigon MobileNavigator for iPhone

iLounge is reporting that Navigon has released a GPS-navigation application for the iPhone. My biggest question about the nav apps planned by Navigon (and rival TomTom) were the prices--no way were they selling these apps for $.99. The price--$70 introductory price, going up to $100 on August 15. I'll be waiting for the reviews of this and the TomTom app before laying down that kind of coin and memory space (1.29 GB required).

Seriously drooling over this. Can anybody score me an invite?

Prius, Now With WiFi

Well, not exactly. But this is still a brilliant idea an marketing campaign.

1-second boot!

One step closer to my dream that my children will not know what "boot up" means.

Emmy Good Emmy Bad

Emmy nominations were announced. My favorite shows of the past year--Lost , 30 Rock, Dexter, and The Office got nominations. Even Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible got some love. The only snubs in my mind are:
  • Lost could have earned acting nominations. WTF? No love for Michael Emerson?
  • Battlestar Galactica only 1 nomination for Best Directing. That's just not right.
  • Rescue Me had a major resurgence this year. Only Michael J Fox got nominated for guest star, but Dennis Leary should have been and the show should have been in the best dramatic series category, IMHO.
Outstanding Drama Series nominations are:
  • Big Love • HBO
  • Breaking Bad • AMC
  • Damages • FX Networks
  • Dexter • Showtime
  • House • FOX
  • Lost • ABC
  • Mad Men • AMC
Outstanding Drama Series nominations should have been:

Jackie Chan Wax Off

Variety is reporting that Jackie Chan will play the role of Mr. Miyagi in a remake of The Karate Kid. Will this reboot madness ever end?

Hmmm... This seems too good to have come from Microsoft.

Pandora Payments

When I saw this headline, I panicked. Not to worry though, it's just $.99 a month if you stream over 10 hours.

Microsoft and Apple About to Get GoOSed

Google just announced it's intention to release its own operating system. Microsoft, on the offensive with Google via Bing, will now be on the defensive with Windows and Office...

Here's also some interesting commentary from The Silicon valley Insider.
