Dude Creates Personal iPhone Icons

Even being the uber-geek that I am, I think I might be too lazy to go through the trouble of creating my own personal iPhone icons… for every single Apple-made application. Let’s be honest. I don’t think… I know. Nevertheless, this dude went through the trouble of taking pictures of himself, with each photo branding the same dorky expression, acting ...

App Growth: Palm vs Apple

Oh boy. This chart is just TOO GOOD not to post. It shows how long it took Apple to roll out 50,000 applications on its App Store (about 10 months) and compares that to Palm’s turtle-esque growth. After more than ten years, the Palm OS (not to be confused with the Pre’s WebOS) had only ~29,000 apps. What does that ...

Microsoft Bribing Bloggers Again

Right around the time Windows Vista came out, Microsoft was engaged in a PR campaign where they would give a blogger an Acer laptop loaded with Vista (see above picture) and not ask for it back.

Shaving the Mustaches of History

Update: Now with more Nazi flavah! Sometimes, a mustache can be a person’s calling card. In fact, the facial hair itself can become more famous than the poor mustached man. In these instances, the mustache and the man are probably of equal value. I must admit, I’m jealous of mustaches of such caliber. With the powers vested in us by ...
