I just upgraded my Verizon Blackberry World Edition to the BlackBerry Tour 9630. This note provides a few observations. I use my phone for business, so I need good clear always-on voice.  But my Blackberry is also my hand held office. I need a device that lets me rapidly draft and se...
Police Chief Whines about iPod app That Monitors Speed Traps
A specific type of design I’ve seen a lot lately is the iPhone app websites. They generally follow the same plan of attack but it makes me wonder – are these sites built to blend in with the rest of the pack or are there some that stand out?

I’m enjoying Net access on a Virgin flight to SF on FastIgnite and other business. While prepping for meetings with Thing Labs, Facebook and Mozilla I came across this Wired article on the mounting Facebook – Google rivalry. It’s a well-written piece that covers  the ...
In a world where most startups choose gaining users over making money, Animoto is an odd exception: It's doing both. Since launching in August 2007, the company has signed up some 750,000 users, and some 10% of those are paying customers. And that's allowed the company to run cash-flow...
Earlier today the news broke that TweetDeck, the most popular Twitter desktop client, is coming to the iPhone. I tracked down TweetDeck investor John Borthwick of betaworks at the 140 Characters Conference in New York City. Sure enough, he has a version of the new TweetDeck app o...
Digg co-founder Kevin Rose got his hands on a new iPhone application that a lot of people will be interested in: TweetDeck. Yes, the popular desktop application is coming to the iPhone "soon," according to Rose. But what's really interesting about it is his statement that, "I can say n...
Everyone moans about the lack of Flash on the iPhone, right? Let's face it: if someone makes a solid Flash implementation for the iPhone there would be substantially less interest in making native iPhone apps. You could create a rich user environment in the browser, and the iPhone App ...
The Android userbase may not be quite as big as that of iPhone OS - but man, they are one loud bunch. More so than any smartphone platform past, users of these two operating systems tend to consider themselves rivals of sorts; if you release an application for one, users of the other...
You may not realize it yet, but the App Store is broken. I spent this week at Apple's WWDC conference in San Francisco talking to quite a few iPhone app developers. One thing that struck me was just how many of them shared the exact same concern with the App Store: App discovery. By ...
Image via CrunchBase Tom Gruber will be one of the keynotes at the Semantic Technology Conference in San Jose next week, and there’s a lot of interest in what he’s likely to show. I spoke to Tom yesterday to learn more, and the result has just been released as a podcast....
At the TechFellow event on Friday, we had the opportunity to demo a musical mobile app that lets you beatbox on your iPhone. Developed by Dutch startup Monodomo, bChamp is $0.99 at the app store. The video gives you a clearer idea of how the app works. bChamp will translate sounds y...
The web has been abuzz lately over Apple's awesome Matrix-style app wall at WWDC, which displays 20,000 of the platform's most popular applications in a dense, moving grid. It's certainly a sight to behold, but while it's been covered pretty extensively across the web, some iPhone a...
By now you either are addicted to Spymaster, or absolutely can't stand it. The viral Twitter-based game in which you do spy-like things such as "assassinate" your followers is a great time-waster. But it's also drawn some criticism as being "spammy." That isn't stopping the team from p...
Today at Apple's WWDC event in San Francisco, Apple had a bunch of Cinema Display monitors mounted together on a wall showing what looked to be some sort of pulsating canvas. But a closer look revealed that it was actually a huge collection of icons for many of the apps available in th...
I spoke today with Scott Kveton, a former developer with deadpooled open-ID startup Vidoop, about the startup, Urban Airship, he and 3 other fellow ex-Vidoopers launched today to assist iPhone developers with push notifications and iPhone storekit provisioning (you can find a compreh...
Apple has just announced yet another milestone for its popular App Store: 50,000 applications are now available in the store. The announcement was made at the WWDC event in San Francisco, alongside the news that Apple has sold some 40 million iPhones and iPod touches. This follows App...
It hasn't been a good year for Apple's iPhone App Store. Child welfare advocates threw a fit over the notorious Baby Shaker application. App Store developers started to complain about slow payment of royalties from Apple. The ubiquity of iPhone flatulence applications became a runni...

Over the last 15 years or so, most of us have adapted to the new forms of communication that pervade the web, ditching letters (and in many cases, phone calls) in favor of rapid fire IMs and Email. But there's still at least one formality embedded in most of us that's been hard to ove...
The iPhone and the Apple App Store have been THE critical agents in changing the mobile consumer’s attitude with regard to mobile applications.  Specifically they have converted virtually all smartphone users (beyond just the iPhone) to wanting and expecting to use native apps on...
It's been over 2 months since Foursquare launched at SXSW and something strange is happening: My friends are still using it -- a lot. Sure, for the service to have real success, it will have to spread well beyond pockets of tech hipsters, but even this success is something we haven't s...
Spotify, the streaming music service which is gradually gathering a large fan-base in Europe, and is poised to launch in the US, has been plotting a mobile version for a while. It recently hired a head of mobile and the speculation was that it would come out with an iPhone app first af...
Today during its keynote address during Google I/O, Google showed off its Latitude location-based service running on the iPhone. This is notable because so far, Latitude hasn't been available on the huge popular smartphone. Instead, not surprisingly, Google opted to focus on getting it...
Zensify is a new lifestreaming iPhone app which lets you update, discover and track pictures, videos and comments across multiple social networks. Other apps have tried to do similar things. But what sets Zensify apart is that it shows the user trends within your social graph in the fo...
I had a chance to sit down this afternoon with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Yuri Milner, the Founder and CEO of new investor Digital Sky Technologies. Digital Sky Technologies is the new owner of just less than 2% of Facebook, paying a whopping $200 million for the privilege. But...
I'm a big fan of coming up with ridiculous "App For That" headlines. You know, the kind that mock Apple's iPhone App Store commercials that basically proclaim there's an app for everything you could ever possibly want to do. So it brings me great pleasure today to report that the next ...
The tech world is an interesting one when it comes to companies making money. Some at the top like Microsoft, Apple and Google are raking in billions in profits every year. And each of those do it with different models: Microsoft through software, Apple through hardware and Google thro...
The Infinity Ventures Summit (IVS) in Sapporo/Japan, one of Asia's most important web industry events, is a wrap, and we were there to witness a total of 12 startups presenting at the launch pad. The judges awarded 3D model maker MotionPortrait with the top prize. Graph sharing service...
NileGuide, one-stop travel planning site, has launched an iPhone app for its travel guide and planning portal. The startup, which lets you create a customized trip itinerary, will now let users view the customized guides they create on Nile's site on their iPhones. Users can browse...
I sincerely hope that a part of Apple's WWDC iPhone announcement plans involves a complete overhaul of the application reviewing process. Because right now, quite frankly, it absolutely sucks. I've harped on this for a while, across multiple sites, but the fact remains that the process...
TwitPic has been one of the big success stories for a service built solely on top of Twitter. It boasts over a million users and gets around 2.5 million unique visitors a month to its site. Celebrities on Twitter are now using it, and it made headlines around the world when a man snapp...
Reaching one million registered users is an important milestone for any startup. At the very least, it suggests that it is pointed in the right direction. Evernote, the app which helps you remember things you find on the Web or take photos of with your phone, just hit one million r...
Not too long ago, Google added voice recognition to their iPhone search application. Not one to be behind the times, Yahoo! has gone and immediately done the same. Well, that's what we should have been able to say. Instead, Yahoo's voice recognition add-on comes nearly 6 months afte...
Distimo, a young Dutch company that is entering the slowly but surely saturating market of mobile application distribution and monitoring services, has just released an interesting report about Apple's App Store. It contains some noteworthy findings about iPhone app pricing and the s...
