iPad event thoughts

A few weeks late and only quick thoughts for now. In no particular order: MacBook Pro Yay they finally killed off the old ones…wait no the 13″ is still there, dammit. Lowered prices as I had hoped and somewhat suspected, but 4GB base? Oy. Mac Pro Well it ended up $500-1,000 more than I was […]

Messiah Stylus!

Adonit has stolen my idea again! …and by “stolen” I mean that they’ve come up with a similar idea completely independently of me.1 Whatever the case I both feel robbed of of the opportunity I was never going to take (cause I lacked the manufacturing, or technical know how in this case), and validated cause […]

2011 Winter Game Grab Gab Part 2: iOS Crap!

Here’s a bunch of games I’ve picked up over the last few…somethings. It’s hard to tell with iOS, a few of these I picked up without actually getting a chance to play for a while or just completely forgetting that I downloaded them. Damn this crazy app market. Bug Princess (aka Mushihimesama) Well it’s another […]

Backing up the HD Era

I have no HDTV1, Blu-ray player/PS3, and the only display I have that can show 1920×1080 is the one attached to my computer…and that one doesn’t support HDCP so I couldn’t even play Blu-rays on it if I had a player. But luckily through the world of computer parts and piracy “backup” focused apps, I […]

Evolutionary Schmevolutionary

Instead of waiting in line for hours like a sucker, I ordered online at just before 1:00am…and waited four days, like a sucker, but from the comfort of my own home. At least I didn’t have to go through the line wait (again) and/or fail and continue to look every day for one in vain. […]

iPad 2 has arrived

Quick impressions: this is how I feel about my original iPad now:

iPad 2 Specs Outta Nowhere

My wild guess for weeks (probably months by now!) has been: Cortex A9 CPU Some new PowerVR GPU More RAM …ok that’s about it. I figured a screen resolution bump (to 2048×1536) was way out there, but only because the screen itself. Most people apparently can’t imagine a mobile chipset being able to power it. […]

Screen Nipples for iDevices

Anyone familiar with touchscreen gaming knows that the controls can range from great and unique, to downright horrid. The good stuff usually deals with direct touch input that is only really possible (or at least vastly ideal) on a touchscreen. The bad stuff tends to have a virtual directional pad or analog stick along with […]

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Stylus

Styluses feel kinda stupid on a phone1 but with a big ass screen they can be pretty awesome. Unfortunately the iPad uses a capacitive screen which doesn’t work with sharp pointy objects, leading to the proliferation of blunt stubby objects and various oddly shaped ones. The problem is that most of these suck.2 But I […]

I AM FAMOUS

Finally all that video game playing has paid off, I have been mentioned on the CAVE WORLD Official Blog! Proof in case you think I’m lying about my score: I am proud to be among the Japanese players and a Dreamcast fan.  And if there wasn’t enough goodness, the “possibly related posts” have sexy results:
