Pin

If you’re not using Pinboard, you clearly love losing your bookmarks. Forever

Pinbook is an excellent iOS client for the excellent paid anti-social bookmarking service Pinboard. Imagine if De.licio.us had never been sold to Yahoo and had instead started charging money to keep your bookmarks tagged and organized online. Further, imagine that the developer kept a Twitter stream that read something like the crotchety ramblings of your drunken (and outspoken) uncle. That service would  [Read More...]

Plus Symbol

It used to be that in order to call a number overseas from the US, you’d dial a number like this one: 011 44 55 5555 5555. These days, however, it’s more common to see a number like this: + 44 55 5555 5555. But where do you find that plus symbol?

We’re here to tell you.

Launch your Phone app on your iPhone and notice the little plus symbol  [Read More...]

STM has just busted out a whole new range of tech-carrying bags, from small purse-a-likes to hefty schlep-it-all backpacks. But the one I fancy most out of the new lineup is the Velo 2, and not just because it sounds like you’re meant to use it while riding a bike.

The Velo looks almost ridiculously flexible. When closed it’s pretty low-key, looking like any other padded messenger-style bag. But open it up and you see  [Read More...]

Element ronin iphone 5 6

Made from rare woods, leather, and nickel-plated aluminum, Element’s Ronin iPhone 5 case is definitely one of the most beautiful and finely crafted cases I’ve seen. But at $ 180, its price might be hard from some to swallow.

The Good

Everything about the Ronin feels premium. Its Nickel-plated aluminum top and bottom have a lovely silver shimmer and look striking. They also fit like a glove and  [Read More...]

The standard terminal appearance is just boring old black text on a white background. Apple included a few nice preset themes too, but to really make your terminals appearance stand out you’ll want to take the time to customize it yourself. While some of these tweaks are admittedly pure eye candy, others genuinely improve the command line experience and make using the terminal not only more attractive but easier to scan.

iPhone-5-Pac-man-carrier

Has your iPhone ever caused trouble between you and your significant other?

My iPhone is magical. It can do all kinds of crazy stuff to help me with dates, like finding the best sushi place, directions to a park, and nearby events.

The problem with my iPhone being so damn fantastic is that a lot of times on dates I’m too engrossed with what’s happening in the digital world, that it  [Read More...]
