Flash On The iPhone?

April 30, 2010 by Ryan Ray · 1 Comment 

Who wants Flash on their iPhone? Please raise your hands, then if you wouldn’t mind please help me understand why the iPhone would benefit from Flash. I’m not wanting to start a flame war, just give me your honest opinion on why the iPhone should have Flash on it. If you are wondering why I’m asking this age old question then you’ve missed out on some news this week.

Steve Jobs has come out with another one of his famous ‘open letters’ and this time it’s directed at Adobe and Flash. First you can start by reading it, Thoughts On Flash. Then shortly after that the same day, the CEO of Adobe granted an interview to which he tried to rebuttle everything Steve Jobs said. If you’d like to read more here is that interview, Adobe On Flash. So after digesting both of those here is what I think. Read on to get my humble opinion on Flash and Flash on the iPhone.

Metronome Faceoff

April 27, 2010 by Ryan Ray · 4 Comments 

The metronome has been on my mind quite a bit lately. I’ve been in the studio recording with John Tibbs, and we’ve noticed how inexperienced we are with the metronome. Although I have practiced quite a bit to a metronome our tracks still aren’t perfect and it’s only a little annoying that I can’t play the drums like a machine. All through high school I practiced my rudiments, fills, and beats to a click. I’ve obviously been a little out of regular practice thanks to college consuming most of my time, which is ANNOYING. None the less, when it comes to the iPhone you can easily find a good metronome. I’ve actually found two that I am going to put up head to head today and see what you guys and gals think about each.

Thoughts On iPhone 4G Prototype

April 26, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

Wait, that’s potentially what it could look like? I’m in love! When the prototype of a potential iPhone case design leaked I was in shock. How did this leak happen to Apple, the worlds most secretive company. Sure enough though, it’s real. If you really want to read all about the leaked prototype check out Gizmodo and their all encompassing coverage of the iPhone 4G Prototype. But if you are sticking around for a minute please let me divulge in my thoughts about the device.

Opera… It’s Alright

I think hell has frozen over, because Opera and their mobile web browser was approved and is now up for download in the App store. Can you believe that? I mean really, it’s a little crazy to think. Doesn’t this go against Apple’s own terms of service? None the less we must all live with reality and say that Safari has some competition headed its way! This is a good thing. I hope this makes way for things like Firefox, IE6… HAH just kidding about that. So check out what Opera Mini looks like.

iPhone OS 4.0 Is Here

Today is the day Apple takes the wraps off of iPhone OS 4.0, and I’m actually excited and really left in the dark about what they could be bringing besides multitasking. I’m not getting my hopes up though, for fear of disappointment. I’ve lived fine without multitasking but in other areas I’m really looking forward to what Apple will bring forward today. I hope that if possible you all will be following the live streams. Just click on the following links to see each sites unique coverage. I usually have these 3 or more open at the same time, just so I don’t miss anything…

Echofon A Hidden Gem

April 6, 2010 by Ryan Ray · Leave a Comment 

There is entirely too much chatter about Twitter on the internet, but I’m just going to add to it. I’ve talked plenty of times about Twitter and the iPhone. It seems to be a perfect combination. Tweeting about current happenings wherever you are. But coming back from the mobile experience, the desktop is often ignored. There are a ton of great iPhone apps out there that make using Twitter beautiful on the go, but when I come back to my iMac I want the two worlds connected. Is that so much to ask? I’ve tried every Twitter client and waited and waited for the one that will take this task on. Enter Echofon, I’ve heard a lot about  it before but never gave it a chance to win my heart. Today though, is a new day. Echofon has just taken over and become my main squeeze for Tweeting on the go and from the desktop. So listen up and let me give you a run down of how this happened, and what makes Echofon so unique to me.
