Ratings Scam Triggers Apple To Scrub ~1% of App Store

Following a brief investigation triggered by the iPhone photography blog iPhoneography, Apple has banished Chinese developer Molinker and its estimated 1000 iPhone apps. The majority of Molinker’s applications were pitiful copycats of existing popular apps, but that’s not what triggered the amateur sleuthing from an Internet friend …

Pingo: A Robotic Penguin Connected To Your Facebook

Back in June I saw this little robotic penguin making the rounds on various blogs. I’m a sucker for tiny animals turned robot, but this one was somehow connected to my Facebook page! I could take the time to try and explain to you what Pingo does – not that it’s very difficult to explain – but the video from Arimaz sums it up …

Best of the Decade: Gadgets

It’s hard to quantify an entire decade’s worth of innovation into a list of so few gadgets. We’ve seen a multitude of “world’s firsts” but few have had a lasting impact felt beyond the initial buzz that surrounds any new gadget launch. We looked for gadgets that either sparked a revolution or did something innovative enough …

Twitter App Showdown: Echofon Pro vs Tweetie 2

Twitter is a necessary evil. And so is the iPhone. (But that has nothing to do with this review at all.)

So I Went to Google Yesterday

Over the holiday weekend I found myself in the land of Apple, Google, HP and others. I only managed to run over to Google’s Mountain View campus for a few minutes to meet with a few folks but it was my first visit and I wanted to see a few of the things that I’d read about. Aside from the dinosaur, ball pit and swimming pool, I …

Based On a True Story: I Suck At Sleeping

I wouldn’t say that I’m sleep deprived. I just have a difficult time falling asleep. I’ve never consulted with a specialist because I honestly don’t think it’s a problem. Once I’m asleep, I’m out like a rock for the rest of the night. Doesn’t everyone have a difficult time falling asleep? Should I consult a sleep expert? …

Netbooks Are Really Dumb, Or Maybe You Already Knew That

If you haven’t noticed already, Lev and I have been deeply entrenched in TIME’s annual end of the year Top 10 list hubbub. Not that I’m a veteran or anything seeing as how this is my first go-round. I’ve also been handling the tech packages that regularly run over at TIME.com that we lovingly place at the bottom of the TECHLAND …
