Some of you probably know that I’ve lost a little over 30 pounds since May. I did it with the help of a nutritionist, and I’m really happy with the diet, so much so that I actually stick with it now, three months later, with very little effort. I have since integrated some serious substance […]
Dragon Dictation for the iPhone is spectacular. It works so well it constantly amazes me. Even when I dictated my wife’s name – Jenn – it suggested “Jenn” as a possible alternative for “Jen.” It frequently gets what I say right the first time, and often catches the wrong words in the tap-to-correct mode when […]
Yesterday, after the Apple presentation “Come See Our Latest Creation,” geeks and bloggers worldwide took to their medium of choice to complain about the underwhelming iPad and its impending failure. I’ve seen all sorts of arguments for why this device will fail, but I’m convinced that this device is going to make them all red […]

From iBooks to Macbook Pros, Macbooks to multiple iMacs, multiple Airport Extremes, Airport Express, AppleTV, every generation of iPhone, […]
On Friday, my iPhone 3G S was scheduled to be delivered. I was very anxious that, should it require a signature, I’d be spending the weekend awaiting its Monday arrival. So I took a shot and wrote a little note. I now love our Fed-Ex dude (dudette?).
So here’s the day: WWDC 2009 keynote, and we’re discussing iPhone OS 3.0. But there are still some major things I think are missing from the iPhone.

Slashgear, and many other sites, are today posting a story about “Jibbler,” the alleged code-name of the voice control subsystem present in iPhone OS 3.0.
