Did I See U - Free Dating App
Have your App Reviewed by a Professional Writer
So right now I’m riding from NYC to DC on BoltBus, which happens to have free WiFi (amazing perk for a $20 bus ride!). I figure that since I have WiFi I might as well explore what’s new on Installer. I see Instinctiv Shuffle™, which I’ve read about but didn’t really expect to live up to the hype.
According to their website, Instinctiv Shuffle is application that enhances the shuffle feature by analyzing your skipping behavior and anticipating what you want to hear next. The application has an incredibly simple interface, on or off, that integrates fully with the standard music player.
So since I’m stuck in traffic and won’t be back in DC for at least 3 hours, I decided to give it a try. The setup is as simple as it looks, but is it really that "Instinctiv"?
The goal of the game is simple-
…run through the gauntlet of AT&T confusion, the Apple mis-communication to achieve 3G iPhone Activation bliss.
The game offers three player-modes-
"I have one and want to upgrade"- mode
"I’m eligible and want an iPhone"- mode
"I have to pay WHAT for this thing?!?!"- mode
Each game comes with its own, ever-changing rules, most of which you will need to guess.
Game Price- $199 for 8GB, $299 for 16GB
Game Availability- July 11th (unless it changes)
Who better than AT&T and Apple to create a game-as challenging as it is frustrating; as ever-changing as it is infuriating!
Yes, the iPhone activation news keeps rolling in- this time The iPodObserver is noting that-
Welcome to the first installment of "Because We Can…"
"Because We Can…" is all about those little apps that are entirely useless but are created…well… because we can…
No real function.
No real utility.
No real purpose other than those first few seconds where you think "Wow this is cool!" and then never use it again.
And the first "Because We Can…" goes to…
Ok, so I’m listening to my favorite band (Dave Matthews if you must know) on iTunes, and just when they are about to get to the part about hiking up the skirt…
BAM, someone changed the tune. Now all I hear is Laurie Berkner and the endless ranting about butterflies and rainbows…
You see, I’ve got my iTunes hooked up wirelessly through AirPort to my stereo so I can stream music from my Mac around the house, but now someone has gotten their hands on it!!!
Its not like someone could just walk up to my computer and change the song, I keep that door locked at all times to prevent such a rude awakening (I get into my music). So of course I check the door and it’s still locked, so what’s going on?
The cabinetry is in. The cash register has been set atop the counter. The shipments have arrived. The price of goods has been set. Now all that’s left is to stock the shelves and open the doors.
Yup, my favorite new shop will soon be open for business.
According to a post over at TUAW the App Store’s shelves are getting stocked already.
TrouserMac Industires has announced their upcoming contribution to the AppStoree freebies- a little gem they’re calling-
BrewingBuddy brings a beer recipe calculation tool, a brewing helper, and means to share brewing recipes with others to the iPhone. While hops aren’t included, this could be a handy little application.
In fact, I could actually use this app. A few years back my in-laws got me a brewing kit for my birthday. For some reason I just couldn’t seem to get it right. With BrewingBuddy maybe it will be time to try again.
According to TrouserMac–
BrewingBuddy helps you formulate a beer recipe to a particular style or your own style. Add ingredients and see how they change the formulation of the beer. When you are ready to brew, BrewingBuddy will help by being your timekeeper. Have a great recipe you want to share? BrewinBuddy will let you share that with anyone via our recipe trading site. BrewingBuddy will also help you by keeping tons of great brewing reference information right at your fingertips.
According to TUAW (via Gizmodo and GearLive) iPhone 2.0 firmware will go golden master (ie- final version released and ready to go) this week.
While Golden master doesn’t offer any indication on timing, it is one more step on the way to the next generation iPhone firmware/hardware combo.
Which all got me thinking…
While I really can’t imagine too many people choosing not to upgrade to the 2.0 Firmware (there are way too many improvements that will come with it) I can see people choosing to continue to live with their 1st Generation iPhone after upgrading the firmware.
After all, the 3G iPhone really is an evolutionary product rather than a real leap forward. Sure, 3G speed is nice but even without GPS the location function works pretty well and the cheap plastic back, extra $10 a month for data and potential battery hit mean the 3G is actually a bit of a trade-off compared to the 1st Gen.
So here’s my plan…
It wasn’t all that ong ago that skeptics were wondering if Steve Jobs bit off a bit more than he can chew when he said that Apple would sell 10 million iPhones by the end of 2008.
Well guess who is already having the last laugh…
According to AppleInsider
Checks within Apple’s supply chain reveal the iPhone maker to have hiked its iPhone 3G build orders through the end of the year to more than 15 million, according to one Wall Street analyst.
But wait… there’s more….
