My First Smartphone

This weekend – after many, many months of lusting over the idea of owning a smartphone (let alone the various models) – I finally took the plunge and joined the 21st Century. It’s only been a couple of days, but already I’m wondering how I went so long without it. Text messaging alone was worth the […]

Technolust: White is the New Black

Do you remember that Nokia phone I was lusting over back in November? Well today AT&T officially announced the launch date and price of the bigger and better version of that phone: the Lumia 900. It’s still a Windows Phone with that same great (dare I say… sexy?) hardware, but now it has a larger screen, […]

A Debt-Free Life for Me!!

Today I took the first big step to completely renovating my life in 2012, something I wrote about way back in September. If you recall, I said this year was “The Year I Get it Together,” which meant eliminating all my debt, nabbing that amazing job (whatever it may be), and finally start living on […]

Kids These Days…

I saw one of the most bizarre things last night: I saw a young girl – probably 11 or 12 – making a call… using her iPod Touch! I’ve known this was a technically feasible thing to do ever since Apple started building microphones into the iPod Touch, and occasionally I hear about some member […]

Technolust: The Nokia Lumia 800

Every so often a device comes along which pushes my “WANT!” Meter to 11. Whether it’s the hardware, the software, or that perfect combination of both, these are the gadgets that fill me with Technolust. Although I may very well buy an iPhone 4S when I can finally afford a smartphone, I have to admit […]

It Slices! It Dices! It Makes Julienne Fries!!

After my post about shopping for a new digital camera, I had several people ask me why I wanted a stand-alone device when camera phones are getting so good. This is a dilemma with buying technology: do you buy a one-hit wonder or a jack-of-all-trades device? I often bounce back and forth on the subject. […]

Technolust: Music to my Ears

A few days ago, I said I’d pretty much decided to get the new iPhone 4. My Android predilections, however, have gotten the better of me, thanks in part to Engadget’s lengthy review of the HTC Aria. I believe my future phone has been found!

Not The Droids I’m Looking For

My boss told me today that she’s getting a Droid Incredible soon. I have to say I’m incredibly jealous (no pun intended). As I mentioned a few months ago, I’ve been trying to decide what smartphone to get soon. I’ve pretty much resigned myself to buying an iPhone 4, but I’m still very drawn to […]

Technolust: The HTC Droid Incredible

As a longtime fan of Google’s many and varied products – from GMail, Reader, and Docs to their superb Chrome browser – it should be obvious that I’m at least somewhat interested in the Android cellphone OS. I don’t own an Android-based phone myself, but I’m certainly considering one. The only thing holding me back […]

iPhone OS 4.0: The Future is… Soon

Last week, I wrote about Apple’s imminent announcement regarding the next version of the iPhone OS.  Well, Jobs has since shown his hand and it may actually be a winner. Multitasking, Game Center, and Folders all look to be great additions to the platform. I can’t wait to try them out on my iPod Touch […]
