The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

The “Only If We’re Offline Friends” Rule

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I’m active on a LOT of social/sharing webapps: Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, Tumblr, and to a lesser degree, FriendFeed, Delicious and Buzz. While most of my posts are public and open to everyone, on Foursquare and Facebook*, I only accept friend requests from people who I know and hang out with offline. Still, I feel bad refusing friend requests from people who listen to TWiG or read Lifehacker or this blog simply because...

Froyo Over-The-Air Updates Hit Nexus Ones This Week

Froyo Over-The-Air Updates Hit Nexus Ones This Week

If you’ve got a Nexus One and have been patiently waiting for the OTA update to Android 2.2, this week’s your week. Google says you’ll get a notification by the end of the week for the update to 2.2. My sources tell me you’ll get it even if you manually installed Froyo, as the official OTA version is a different build number. Here’s the good stuff you get in Froyo; no word yet on other handsets.

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

Spent several hours running around town doing tedious errands the other day in neighborhoods I don’t know well, so I was thrilled to finally tap the “Navigate To->Home” button on my GPS when I was done. It got me wondering: what are the software buttons you just can’t help but love to tap, click, or press? An informal poll on Twitter unearthed a bunch of good ones: your email’s Out of Office “Enable” button, “End Call,” “Mark...

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 at an...

Android Tip: Swipe Up to Extend the Keyboard

Android Tip: Swipe Up to Extend the Keyboard

Commenter seguetonowhere points out a useful Android keyboard feature I missed in my original Froyo rundown: if you swipe your finger over the top of the Android 2.2 default keyboard, it will extend two more rows out and show you keys for common punctuation and numbers. Click on the thumbnail to see the expanded keyboard. This is a faster way to punctuate and/or add numbers than tapping the ?123 key or tap-and-holding the period key. However, as seguetonowhere points out, parentheses...

Earthquakes and Android Development

Earthquakes and Android Development

While last night’s southern California earthquake shook up the Padres game, I was standing in a doorway downloading an Android app. Twitter was down, the news didn’t have anything yet, but I remembered Reto Meier, a Googler who did an Android talk at I/O had demo’ed an earthquake detection app. It’s called Earthquake!, and it’s got some very useful features, especially when you’re worried about the earth cracking open and swallowing your home whole....

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This Week in Google, Episode 46

This week’s episode of TWiG featured Jeff Jarvis Skyping over 3G from a moving car on a NJ highway, Brad Stone from the NY Times who was a total trooper during our criticism of the Times’ takedown of the Pulse iPhone RSS reader, and Om Malik of Gigaom, a very smart teddy bear who I’d like to hug. My tip this week: the new Gmail Labs’ Maps Preview, which embeds a Google Map into any email that has a U.S. address in it. Continua a leggere – Original Link:...

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO

Nicole Lee does the hard work so I don’t have to: feature by feature comparison of the iPhone 4 and the 4G HTC EVO. As far as I’m concerned, the EVO’s the better deal: bigger screen, more customizable OS, Google Maps navigation, Google Voice native app, tethering/portable hotspot, kickstand, Sprint 4G network support, expandable MicroSD up to 32GB, and removable battery. No-brainer. Continua a leggere – Original Link: iPhone 4 versus HTC EVO Technorati Tags:...
