Well that took a while…

Well that took a while…

What can I say, life happened . A lot has been happening in tech as always. The new and exciting gizmo of the moment has to be the Nexus 7 tablet with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, then there’s Mac OS 10.8 Mountain Lion released today. Having tried these out, there are a...

Updated

Well it has been a while and a lot of things have happened, naturally. The update took a little longer than expected :-). Anyway, back to the happenings. The Desire HD is gone, replaced by the super awesome HTC One X. The first gen iPad is gone – replaced by the new...

Updating…

Just moved to a new and better host for anphase.com. I moved from Go Daddy to Bluehost. Faster, better, stronger, awesomer. I am still fixing some database bugs but everything should be sorted in a few hours – it takes a while for the updates to ripple through...
Where my robots at?

Where my robots at?

For the longest time I thought 2 things were going to happen before 2010. The first was that tablets were going to take off. They did. I thought Windows was the OS to do it since Microsoft had been trying for ages but that didn’t really work out. Instead, Apple came...
Kindle Classic Review

Kindle Classic Review

Why on Earth… I have to admit, I didn’t read much until recently. The only stuff I ever read were school books so that I could, you know, get along and pass my courses. So a while back, I heard the Steve Jobs autobiography was coming out. I...

The Future: Siri-ously Lytro

There are a few technologies that have popped up in the last few weeks that I believe are the future. One of them is Siri and the other is the Lytro camera. I will start with Siri. Siri Siri is the incredible new virtual assistant for the iPhone 4S. It (she) works...

Change

It’s really funny how things change so fast. At the beginning of the year, I let go of my Samsung i8910 and I got a new Android phone, the Desire HD. At that time it was the cream of the crop – later came the Samsung Galaxy S2, which still reigns supreme. Now my...

MeeGo Tablet User Experience(Video)

MeeGo Tablet User Experience(Video)

The video speaks for itself. The UI is not very interesting. It’s about, swiping, tapping and long pressing. You have panels that have different sets of data, sort of like big widgets. There’s really not much to say here. It’s still early in development (notice the...
Newspapers Are Dead

Newspapers Are Dead

Earlier today, I launched The Daily app on my iPad. It immediately started to download today’s issue. This was the headline: Several newspapers came in this morning with a similar headline. I thought, wow. After all that’s happened Mubarak won’t step down? Wow. A...

Jerusalem ‘Super Ball’ UFO Fake? (Video)

So there’s this ball of light that hovered over a holy temple up in Jerusalem. This happened on the 28 of January and there are several videos showing this UFO. I’m a big fan of this UFO thing but I’m also one of the greatest skeptics. I don’t believe any of it but I...

The Paperless Dream

Since the beginning of time I’ve been searching for a device to replace paper. The problem with paper is that I use a lot of it. A whole lot of it. For performing a quick calculation, jotting down some notes, making a quick sketch etc., paper is the easiest, cheapest...
3D Phones? Come On, Really?

3D Phones? Come On, Really?

Maybe 60years ago the headline was Colour TVs? Come On, Really? And a few years before that it was Sound In Movies? Come On, Really? But seriously, come on, really? My point is, 3D at the movies and especially 3D in the home, hasn’t really taken off. What gives them...
