Finally. The must-have app for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

I’ve been in love with Drop­box for a while now, so much so I’m pro­mot­ing it in my adspace in my side­bar. Drop­box has made it much much easi­er to trans­fer files between com­puters. Sure, I could email them, but that’s not at all eleg­ant. All I do with Drop­box is copy a file to […]

Best music player ever gets an update

I caught Song­bird’s updated (back in June) but had­n’t paid atten­tion to what was new with it. I wrote about the pre­vi­ous update here and loved the fact that Song­bird finally got watched folders. Well, it seems that in this latest update there was one sig­ni­fic­ant new fea­ture (for me).

From the ‘so simple why didn’t I think of it’ category

A friend of mine poin­ted me to this bril­liant post (via iPhone Cent­ral) The concept is simple; Scan the front and back of all your bar­coded mem­ber­ship cards, and carry them around in your iPhone.
