40 Capsule Not-Quite-Reviews of my Current iPhone Applications

iPhone 3GiPhone 3GI thought I would do some quikie capsule not-quite-reviews of the applications on my iPhone and why I have them on there, including the games, since it's the only device I've really had time to use in the last few weeks. These will be examined in the order of how I have them placed on the menu, from left to right, top to bottom (apps I added in BOLD):

Lots of thoughts on my new iPhone

Well, after seeing what seemed like every Tom, Dick and Harriet with an iPhone during our trip to San Francisco and noting that several critical barriers (Outlook synchronization, coming Slingbox support, etc.) had fallen over time for the device, as well as my wife getting a new LG Shine in a pinch because the battery on her Samsung Blackjack II had bit the dust, I decided now was as good of a time as any to change phones from my own Samsung Blackjack II to a white 16GB iPhone, particularly since if you go with a refurb on the AT&T site you can save $100 off the price (and this applies to either the 8GB or 16GB model). The fact that we were already AT&T customers sealed the deal.

Preview of Sony Reader - Some Thoughts

PC Magazine has a very limited preview of a pre-production version of Sony's upcoming PRS-500 E-Book Reader, here. It has a six inch screen and is about the size of a thin paperback book. What's most intriguing about the device though is that uses the much touted, but little seen to this point, "E Ink" technology. "E Ink" essentially allows for using power ONLY when changing pages, so keeping a page displayed takes no energy. This is important, as it means battery life is not an issue with even casual recharging and any page you have up on the screen stays up on the screen, not requiring the device to go into a power saving mode or turn its screen off like current devices do. This increases its reference value/usefulness tremendously, and, along with its high resolution, places such a device in more of a competitive balance with print on paper, which of course is the ideal text display "device" to this point.

Apple and Microsoft to Release Portable Game Machines?

How about the gamer iPod?How about the gamer iPod?I've been speculating for some time that the next logical entry into the portable gaming market would be from Apple (particularly in an editorial response to Gamasutra about six months back) and it looks like other industry analysts are starting to catch wind of the idea as well, for instance in this piece from GameDaily BIZ Newsletter, here.
