That Was (Windows) Easy (Transfer)

If you’ve ever owned a Windows PC, than you’ve almost certainly come to a point when your machine stops behaving properly. Maybe it’s cause of something you did (perhaps all of your apps are not completely legitimate, for example), or maybe it was just Windows being Windows.
In this particular instance, I am going to diagnose …

Review: Belkin Snap Shield for iPad 2

Update (7/1/11): Unfortunately, 3 of the 4 corners have begun to crack under very light use. I’ve contacted Belkin, will report back. 🙁
Alas! I’ve finally found the “case” I’ve been looking for since I first got my iPad 2 – the Belkin Snap Shield.
Available in both clear (right, which is still lightly frosted) and …

The 4th annual San Francisco Outside Lands music festival will be held in Golden Gate Park on August 12-14. While the lineup was announced a couple weeks back, there is still no formal daily schedule available.

Review: 32GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 with Smart Cover

Apple has once again raised the bar on industrial design. The iPad 2 is unreasonably thin and one of the most impressive pieces of hardware to date. With that said, there’s still plenty of room for improvement.
Hardware
It should come as no surprise that Apple’s latest iOS device is a real work of industrial art. iPad …

Extend a gadget’s manufacturer’s warranty for free with AMEX

OK, so maybe y’all knew this already, but apparently when you purchase electronics* with an American Express, AMEX will automatically extend the original manufacturer’s warranty for up to an additional year…for free.

Excited by this news, I called AMEX to confirm that the iPad, for example, is in fact eligible for the additional coverage — it …

Quasi-Review: HP Pavilion dm4t “Entertainment” laptop

I’ve been in the market for a new laptop (PC) for a little while now. Having long grown out of my need to be on the bleeding edge of gadgetry, especially considering that I spend most of my computing time at home on my desktop and smartphone, I was still searching for an attractive, well-made, …

Wordfeud: A better, seemingly safer alternative to WordWise

Several months back, I wrote about how I thought WordWise was the best Scrabble-like Android app available. Well that was then, and this is now.
As that post notes at the top, several changes were made to WordWise over the last many updates. Sure, frequent updates and feature additions are generally welcome, but not always.

Smart ForTwo Electric Drive: The ultimate urban ride?

I love Smart cars. Ever since studying abroad in Europe back in 2002, I’ve had a thing for ’em. And now that I’ve lived in a city for nearly 7 years, the thought of a real-world micro machine has become that much more enticing.
But is there anything better than a Smart car? Well, yeah. An …

Camera360 brings HDR and other camera effects to Android

What can I say, I’m a sucker for contrast. I’ve always admired high contrast, black and white photographs. More recently, I’ve developed a thing for high dynamic range (aka HDR) images; I simply can’t get enough of ’em.
While Apple has recently-ish added the ability to take native HDR images to its iThings, Android’s stock camera …
