    BlackBerry PlayBook

    BlackBerry PlayBook came out this week. This time there is finally something to rival the iPads. There is a market of people who love their Blackeberries, as much as iPhone owners, love (or have a complicated relationship with) their iPhones. If you are one of those who is a Blackbery enthusiast, including our President then this is beginning to look like a good alternative in reviews. One of the main selling points about the BlackBerry PlayBook is the rock solid operating system called  QNX . Each week seems to bring another story of how Android based devices have leaked information, been back-doored or hacked. You most likely won’t hear that about the PlayBook. It is slightly smaller than an iPad at seven inches. It will play Flash. But for some reason there is no 3G. That could be a downside. It measures up at 0.4-inches thick being less than a

    ScanLife’s App for UPC bar code scanning

    I remember years ago when I found this perfect nail polish in a store. Of course, no price tag on either the bottle or the shelf. I stood there looking for one of those bar code scanners. After enough annoyance, I gave up. Of course I bought the polish. Now imagine if I had an app on my phone that would have told me that the wonderful polish was only five dollars.  Well that is now possible with ScanLife’s App. A new version of ScanLife’s App for bar code scanning was released this week for the Iphone, Android and Blackberry. The app functions by using the mobile phone’s camera to scan the UPC and then the app reads the bar code in order to retrieve product information for all product.  The new app is able to scan both 2D and 1D bar code into the app and identify the product. Consumers can download ScanLife free

    Review: Foursquare

    I’m not talking about your old school foursquare, with chalk, a ball and too much aggression. I’m about about the moblie app, and web site designed for people on the move and who wish to explore. For the longest time Foursquare was limited to a list of cities. If your city wasn’t on the list, then it was pretty much pointless to have the app.  Since then it’s been upgraded to the “Elsewhere” mode, where you can check-in no matter where you are.  People from all over, including my isolated self, can check in, give updates, become mayor and provide suggestions of things to do.   Yet the question is, why should I even bother?  What,  I really enjoy about this concept is that it is away to explore new cities while traveling, as well as the place you have lived all your life.  I found a wonderful coffee shop in the middle of

    One Billion People Will Own SmartPhones: Market Analysis

    There is nothing like a little bit of marketing analysis to get the day started right. As it stands now, many people are buying smartphones. I am sure if you poll the staff members at Gaming, a number of us have smartphones. The difference is, that according to a report by David Luu entitled Handheld Device Convergence, we are still buying different deviced for different functions. If you look at my bag for travel, or for work, I have a number of items in there. I have a laptop, A DS, and Ipod, a digital camera and a cell phone. Yes, I carry a large bag. Taken from the report is the fact that by 2013 there will be about 1 billion users of smart phones by 2013. Last year, mobile phone ownership exceeded four billion users – which equates to nearly 60% of the world’s population. And in
