When Apple announced that they were rebranding their .Mac service as MobileMe, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who started thinking of all the fun possibilities for @me.com email addresses.

iPhone 3G: What is A-GPS?

Adrien and I went to see Cloverfield on Sunday, and while it wasn’t the transcendent movie-going experience that I was hoping for, it was certainly a whole lotta fun. If you’re a monster-movie aficionado, be sure to stay for the credits. They roll for a minute or two in near silence, but then the movie’s […]

Podophile’s Back

Yeah, I know it’s been nearly forever since my last post. Totally not intentional… just the way things work out sometimes. Let’s just say that I’ve taken on a couple of new projects in the past few months which are taking up much more time and energy than I had anticipated. Add to that the […]
