HD Wallpapers: Pretty pretty
IPAD APPS REVIEW

Pretty, pretty, pretty.  The world is a much more enjoyable place when one’s surroundings are pretty, or artful, or cogitatively provocative in a spiritually uplifting manner…

 

...okay, Edwin.  We get the point.  Pretty is good.  Which is why…

…oh so subtle segue imminent…

…HD Wallpapers for the iPad is spiffy.  It’s brimming with prettiness.

XtraFolio: Go on, make their eyes drool.
IPAD APPS REVIEW

Okay, let’s say I’m a photographer and I’m rocking into Rolling Stone with my big heavy book of candid [mentally insert rock band of preference here] photos.  I chuck it onto the boardroom table with a heavy thump and say something super confident like, “rock ‘n roll ointment for those sore eyes of yours, man”.

Fancy: Whatever takes your fancy, really

Fancy: Whatever takes your fancy, really
WEB APPS REVIEW

Being a virtual magpie.  You know, flying around collecting up lots of shiny stuff…it’s fun.  And it beats doing it in the real world where, after years of ‘magpieing’, you end up with rooms full of dust-collecting crap.  Been there, done that, having a garage sale tomorrow.

Fancy lets you do the magpie thing in style, with ease, and without having to entice your poor friends over for a cup of tea and a tour of your dusty, claustrophobia inducing hoarder lair.

Photobucket: What the buck…et?
IPAD APPS REVIEW

I have a sweet tooth for eye candy…particular for illustrations.  Rodney Matthews, Gris Grimly, Nathan Jurevicious…these are guys whose work makes my world a better place.  I can’t draw to save my life, and my photographic skills aren’t much to sing and dance about either.

IPHONE APPS REVIEW

I’m humming the theme tune to CHiPs as I review this app…you know, Jon Baker and Frank Ponch keeping their lawful sunglassed eyes on the mean streets of California?  Up there with the Dukes of Hazzard as one of my all time favourite shows watched as a kid.

Flipboard: Riding the gossip tsunami

Flipboard: Riding the gossip tsunami
IPAD APPS REVIEW

How do you keep up with everything?  How does one avoid being pulverized by the tsunami of digital gossip?  That’s a little on the OTT side, I know.  But really.  Facebook, Twitter, Blogs…just to name the big three alone…check them all every day and you’re easily throwing three or more hours of your life into the deep, dark pit of current affairs and current gossip.

How do you make sense of it and pick out what you really really want to know?

Flipboard…your own magazine personalized from the lives and ideas of your friends and heroes.
