I use my iPhone all the time. At work or play, it completes me. I have a few gripes (no sense beating the cut/copy/paste dead horse) - there are some glaring omissions that make it difficult for people to take the iPhone seriously for business or just everyday productivity.
Some kind of sync-able task or to-do list is such a basic feature, and fortunately, the advent of 3rd party apps have made it possible for developers to provide a plethora of apps to remedy this deficiency. The two apps that you folks in the forum picked for this TiPb AT WORK smackdown is Things and Appigo's Todo. Users have given them both a 4-star rating in the App Store and, quite honestly, it's a VERY close call to me.
Which of these two get-er-done apps are the best? How do they stack up? Read on!
Major League Baseball's App for the iPhone has been in the news due to a price drop -- and the little controversy surrounding it's seasonal expiry -- as of late. Well, now Apple has thrown a huge spotlight onto it again, this time likely hoping to ride the playoff popularity wave.
For baseball fans who want their fix when they want and where they want, the commercial gets it right: "game changer" indeed.
Today we are looking at the Golla Cube Music Black Pouch for the iPhone 3G, iPhone and iPod Touch. I currently use a hip holster for my iPhone 3G, but I have been looking to branch out to something a little more “hip”. The Golla case fits that bill perfectly! Want something that looks good? Has a few extra pockets to store cash and cards? Look no further than a Golla pouch!
Ha! No iPhone news indeed! We knew Steve Jobs wouldn't abandon us completely, not his baby, not his "third-leg" love child! Jason Snell, putting the new MacBooks under the microscope for Macworld, discovers (via Daring Fireball):
TiPb's latest, greatest contest is AT WORK, where all the members of TiPb iPhone Exchange & Enterprise Forum votes on their top two Productivity Apps, we review them head to head and app-vs-app, and one of the voters wins the winning App!
Week 2 voting is now over, and the To Do/Task showdown is set: Things vs. Appigo To Do!
Brian will reveal the winning App tomorrow (Wednesday), but right now we can tell you which Forum voter will win it! So who gets the best Task/To Do App on the iPhone?
Congratulations! We'll contact you with details on how to claim your prize.
No love from Apple for the iPhone today, despite glass trackpads, with multi-touch being introduced into the MacBook line. We have a transcript of our full meta-live blog coverage available now if you want the details, but the broad strokes are all in aluminum and black. The long-standing rumors mostly came true, with design unified around the current iMac model -- with a gorgeous new 24" Cinema Display being a near kissing-cousin to last year's desktop rev.
15" MacBook Pro and MacBook's available now-ish. Air's to follow soon (November?). Rumor has it there are issues with the 17", so we may only see those later.
Missed out meta-live blogging of Apple's "Spotlight Turns to Notebook" Event? No problem, we have you covered! Below you'll find the transcript featuring Dieter, Rene, Brian, and special guest Editor Emeritus Mike, as well as all the great comments from our readers.
So strap yourselves in. Put your old Macbook on eCraigsBayList (or whatever), and catchup on TiPb's full coverage, after the jump!
We repeat, this is not a drill! The Apple Store is Down! Reports are flooding in from all over the intertubes... Details are sketchy but authorities urge everyone to stay calm and proceed to TiPb where Live Meta-Blog coverage of Apple's "The Spotlight Turns to MacBooks's" will begin soon!
Now find your loved ones. Cling to them. And hold to hope. The Apple Store WILL be back. And it will once again restore your childlike sense of wonder.
We're beyond the looking glass. Boom-time approaches people...
RIM calls it "ClickThrough" and introduced their version with the Blackberry Storm. While we here at TiPb were initially dubious, Crackberry.com was apparently right about the Storm as the Big Sites loved it quite a bit. Still, we never saw Apple adopting it, and it's scroll-click metaphor, to the iPhone, but it looks like they may have already put a similar concept to use in the new MacBooks set to be announced today. Daring Fireball has the spoiler alert:
You're listening to the latest, greatest TiPb Phone Different Podcast. Mike and Dieter are on fire. And then... out of nowhere... they cross the line. They say something so outrageous you just have to respond, to retort, to -- quite frankly -- set them straight. You grab your iPhone, hit the Favorite for Phone Different Feedback and...
