Gated Entry

After 2 days of fog, I shot this with my little iPhone up at Cavallo Point this afternoon. The walk up the steep hill in the gutsy, gusty, cool breeze/wind was tremendously invigorating. I absolutely feast on the cool air from the Pacific Ocean. The beauty of the bay area just feeds my soul.… Continue reading

iPhone Case Protection

I’m really not a very clumsy person. I rarely drop things or knock them over. I generally don’t worry about dropping my iPhone, which I carry around in my pocket without any case at all these days. When I get into the car, I plug my iPhone into Chloé’s USB port to charge. But recently I saw this G-Form video… Continue reading

My Weekend Instagrams

What an awesome weekend with nothing to do related to moving!!! Tim Likes! So, off we went exploring the headlands area within just a mile or two of the house. It’s sooo awesome! Hiking trails are everywhere. Miles and miles of gorgeous, never-to-be-developed wilderness!! Unfortunately, my Instagram app somehow lost its connection with Facebook, and I didn’t realize this until… Continue reading

Now a Citizen of the iCloud

Well, I avoided the iCloud and upgrading to Lion and iOS5 before the move. I’m getting old: I could only deal with so much change at a time and feared if something went wrong with the upgrade process I could be out a phone and/or computer, which would never do. Today I bit the bullet and have been migrating everything… Continue reading

Taxi Magic

Travel a lot?  Frequently call a taxi? Taxi Magic may just be the app for you! I needed to call a taxi for a trip to LAX.  I went online to lookup the number for Yellow Taxi and found this app:  Taxi Magic.  I downloaded it from iTunes.  Used it.  Loved it! Setup your account.  The app automatically locates you… Continue reading

Phonofone III

The Phonofone III is a clever, beautiful, acoustic audio enhancer, or passive amplifier, exclusively for the iPhone. It uses no electricity, just provides an acoustic shell that boosts the volume of the iPhone about 10db making it roughly 4x louder than the iPhone’s own internal speakers. As you can see from the pictures below, it is a conversation starter. However,… Continue reading

The Glif

I like simple solutions.  The Glif is just that.  Ideal for mounting an iPhone 4 on a tripod horizontally or vertically, the Glif also serves as a handy stand for holding the iPhone 4 on a table top for FaceTime calls (again horizontally or vertically) and for reading.  Clever.  Simple.  Multifunctional.… Continue reading

Utterly Shocking!

Image by Getty Images via @daylife AT&T promises that they have 97.7% of people in the US “covered.”  In their commercials they paint the whole country with Cingular‘s adopted orange color.  (They bought out Cingular and chose to keep Cingular’s marketing colors as the tired AT&T blue color had become a potent reminder of how horrid AT&T is.  You know,… Continue reading

Wow! Imagination & Tiny Technology

The fact that this can be done, in total, from storyboard (if they had chosen to) all the way to upload to YouTube, on a $299 device, the iPhone 4, that also happens to make phone calls, is astounding. When Apple makes this all possible on an iPhone Touch and the iPad, they will rock the education market! Be sure… Continue reading

Navigon iPhone Navigation Application

I haven’t posted much to my blog lately because I have been intensely busy, mostly with traveling, writing, and physical therapy.  And I have made some minuscule effort to avoid the computer as typing at the keyboard seems to train wreck my bad shoulder! Recently, well, over the past several days, I used my Navigon application on the new iPhone… Continue reading
