Google Voice Open in the U.S.

Google Voice Open in the U.S.

Previously invitation-only Google Voice just opened to everyone in the U.S., offering free text messaging, multi-phone management, and voicemail features which, after more than a year of exclusive use, I couldn’t live without. The three things I do on my mobile phone most–text, call, and check email–are powered entirely by Google at this point with Voice, Gmail, and Android. The Gmail/GVoice experience on Android is the main thing that leaves me cold when I look...

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Steve Jobs announced the iPhone 4 yesterday in his WWDC keynote, and it’s a gorgeous device with software upgrades that include multitasking, a video chat app called FaceTime, and more. I’m still a happy Android user, but I have to hand it to Apple. They continue to school the industry on aesthetics and marketing. Case in point: the FaceTime demo video. First, some background. I got a Sprint EVO at Google I/O which has a front-facing video camera, and presumably the...

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

New and aspiring Android users often ask me what apps I have installed on my Nexus One. The list changes pretty often–especially when Leo and Jeff recommend something good on TWiG–but for the most part I keep my Applications menu pared down to just the stuff I actually use. Thanks to AppBrain, I’m now syncing my list of installed apps to the web for easy sharing and updating. Here’s the complete list of what apps are installed on my phone right now. To the left...

I’m Not Buying an iPad This Weekend

I’m Not Buying an iPad This Weekend

Even though I’m desperately curious how one looks and feels and works, I’m not buying an iPad–just yet, anyway. I’ll head down to the Apple store and fondle one on Saturday, just before TWiG, so that I can talk about it on-air. But I’m already suffering from gadget overload, with a netbook and an iPod touch and the Nexus One and a Kindle, so bringing another gadget into the house just doesn’t makes sense. I will buy a tablet in the next year or so–after...

Latest Videos: Productive Procrastination and Eating Your Frog

Latest Videos: Productive Procrastination and Eating Your Frog

My two latest videos over at Fast Company deal with how to get things done even when your lizard brain is completely against you. First, a bit on how to procrastinate productively; second, how to get your most important work done first thing, before you start procrastinating. The topics are very much related. Once you’ve let yourself dread something long enough, you get stuck in a cycle of procrastination that makes you feel like crap. But my big secret is this: some of my best...

Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day by Coding Something Meaningful

Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day by Coding Something Meaningful

It’s Ada Lovelace Day and I haven’t had time to write up something profound about women in tech, because, well, I’ve been too busy coding. Appropriate, no? I’ve been jamming on ThinkTank, a new webapp that will help the White House crowdsource ideas for our country’s scientific and technological goals. It’s also one of the youngest, pluckiest, up-and-coming woman-friendly open source projects around. My partner at Expert Labs Anil Dash explains why: Besides...

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Flash’s Decline on Lifehacker, from 2006 to 2010

Just like it isn’t on the iPhone and iPod touch, Adobe’s Flash browser plug-in will not be on the iPad, and there are a whole lot of opinions about that decision. Predictably, Steve’s apostles are smug, Adobe’s pouting, and the rest of us will have to field questions from our relatives about why they keep seeing a blue lego piece. Flash usage has been declining over the years anyway, and a few web publishers have shared numbers to prove the point. 32% of visitors...

Alex Payne on the iPad

Alex Payne on the iPad

“The iPad leaves me with the feeling that Apple’s interests and values going forward are deeply divergent from my own. The future of personal computing that the iPad shows us is both seductive and dystopian. It’s not a future I want to bring into my home.” al3x on the iPad. Read it.
