No iOS 7 and Goodbye iPhone

Unless you have been living under a tech rock you know that Apple's iOS 7 was made available for iPhone and iPad users to upgrade. I've tested iOS 7 prior to release and I made a decision it was time for me to make the switch to Android. I figured that if I'm going to learn a new OS why not Android. I've been a long time Apple fanboy and have stood in line at least three times for the iPhone including the very first iPhone and the first iPad.

How Apple could disrupt the QR Code Reader App business and make QR Codes main stream in iOS5

When it comes to the QR Code marketing / implementation business one question I often would get is what is the best QR Code reader for xyz smartphone.

Today Google announced Video Chat for Android Phones starting with the Nexus S device as part of the Android 2.3.4 over-the-air update and will launch on other Android 2.3+ devices soon. This comes on the heels as Fring just announced their free four way video calling  service and the recent Skype acquisition of Qik video calling platform. But as RWW posted when will video calling work across smartphones natively from the mobile OS?  Example iPhone facetime video call to a google voice user and a google voice video call to a skype call?  Only time will tell but this is a good start [...]

Google releases the official Honeycomb/Android 3.0 Preview video

If you are currently using Google's Android OS on a tablet you'll notice at times it's not as slick or intuitive as a tablet OS should be especially one from Google.

5 Ways Developers and Partners are using the new TriOut API

Before check.in was release TriOut founder Lawrence Ingraham and I new at some point TriOut would need an API. What we didn’t know is how soon it would be created after the initial launch in February 2010. Then we saw the first beta release of check.in announced and I contacted my friends at Brightkite to see if they were interested in including TriOut for the second beta version and the response was yes. Some may have wondered why include a hyper-local location-based platform in a national check-in web app where the goal is to help solve check-in fatigue but the answer is simple. Why not?
