I was a very early adopter – and advocate – of the Nike+iPod system. Apple and Nike developed an easy and fun way to track running data on the iPod nano and the Nikeplus.com website. Unfortunately, as Apple’s product line advanced into phone and touch territory, the Nike+ system remained stagnant. Not only is the […]

RunKeeper, a GPS-based training assistant for runners and cyclists, has been approved by Apple and is available on the iTunes App Store as of tonight. I’m downloading it now, but since it’s just after midnight here in California I won’t be going out for a run until the morning. I’ll post my first impressions soon. […]

RunKeeper, the forthcoming GPS-based run tracking app for iPhone, has a shiny new FAQ to tide us over while we all wait for App Store approval. Some interesting nuggets: RunKeeper only works with 3G iPhones (because the original iPhones don’t have GPS). RunKeeper can run for 3 hours on one battery charge (if you follow […]

The best feature: Adding photos and screen grabs from the phone to my posts. Bonus: Multiple blog support. Missing: […]

iPhone 3G GPS: Take 2

Yesterday, I posted an item from Gizmodo explaining the benefits of the iPhones A-GPS vs. plain old GPS. Within minutes of my posting, Giz removed the article. Today, Giz is back with a new article about the iPhone’s GPS. It looks like it’s been re-written from top to bottom, but the gist is the same: […]

Walt Mossberg’s review of Samsung’s Instinct phone in today’s Wall Street Journal is the kind of article that almost makes me ashamed to be an Apple fan. As an iPhone enthusiast, I’m always interested in reading about competing products — and am always secretly delighted when reviewers point out that the iPhone still reigns supreme […]

Will iPhone 3G Kill Nike+iPod?

Though I haven’t paid much attention to the Nike+iPod Sport Kit in recent months, every time a high-profile Apple event rolls around I secretly hope for an announcement (or even a mention) of the popular running gadget.

Who Needs “Push” E-Mail?

Now think about how often you need to see a message immediately or the world will end. How many of those times will somebody trust such a critical message only to e-mail, where it can get caught up by a spam filter or lost in the general clutter of your inbox? Using one of the […]

The Wall Street Journal just posted this article: “Facing a backlash from early buyers of the iPhone, Apple Inc. said it would issue a $100 credit for Apple Stores to iPhone users who paid full price for the product. The move, announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a letter posted on Apple’s Web site, […]
