Who actually listens to voicemail anyway?


Apple is supposedly working on a feature in iOS10 that will transcribe voicemail messages via Siri and then deliver them as text messages. Because everybody HATES checking their voicemail, right? I pretty much NEVER do it … because 1) it’s a pain-in-the-@$$ and B) it costs me call minutes to do it. I *thought* getting …

I am normally pretty disciplined about skipping the first generation of any new technology, even when it’s an Apple product, but the new watch coming out of Cupertino is seriously going to test my resolve. I’m a gadget junkie to begin with, and an Apple FanGurl besides. Add in the fact that I’ve always had a “thing” for …

Samsung scored the product-placement coup of century


I *thought* it was kind of fishy when host Ellen Degeneres whipped out something other than an iPhone for the now-famous Tweet-seen-round-the-world “selfie” during the 2014 Oscar‘s ceremony last night!

Dr. Darling, Dream Catcher


So the Swede’s gawd-awful-early alarm clock woke me from an odd dream this morning, and as long as we were both awake I figured I might as well tell her about it. I was on a road-trip with three good friends, and as is often the case in my dreams, they were not people I …

iPhone 5 ad spoof


I am a self-admitted Apple fanboi, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate this bit of satire. Full disclosure: my much-loved iPhone 4S is only a year old and I’m very happy with it, so I don’t have any plans to get the 5. Plus my Apple budget for 2012 is already committed to a …
