One year later, Apple still headed wrong way with Maps

Posted September 26, 2013 @ 9:51 am CST by Alberto Lima

After a weekend of record breaking sales on their latest iPhone offering (again), Apple got an unfortunate report published by FastCompany. A year after Apple nixed Google’s Maps for their own in-house map application, Apple still seems to be giving some really bad directions to their customers. The latest report of erroneous directions comes from Alaska’s Fairbanks […]

Noisestash: Three apps that help organize my life

Posted July 5, 2013 @ 3:55 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Over the last few months I’ve found myself completely overwhelmed by the rigors of managing two websites, freelance work, and carving out personal time to deal with the important things.

It finally happened, the iPhone goes Magenta

Posted March 26, 2013 @ 11:13 am CST by Alberto Lima

PS4, emphasis on ‘Play’, will you fall in love?

Posted February 21, 2013 @ 10:35 am CST by Kevin Jones

Judge denies Apple additional damages; Samsung still gotta pay

Posted January 30, 2013 @ 4:30 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Remember the landmark ruling in Apple’s favor following the big Apple v. Samsung patent lawsuit last summer? Well the TL;DR version could be summed up as follows: A jury found that Samsung “willfully” infringed upon some of Apple’s patents and awarded them $1.049 Billion.

Posted January 14, 2013 @ 11:32 am CST by Alberto Lima

Got an iOS device? Like guns? Have a four-year-old? If the answer to all three was yes, then Apple thinks you should totally let them have at the National Rifle Association’s newest game – NRA: Practice Range.

Porn in Russia’s iTunes Store

Posted December 5, 2012 @ 2:00 pm CST by Alberto Lima

But by no means was this intentional, the report from NBC News indicates that the gaffe was a result of an unobservant web designer using an ‘xx.xx.xx’ placeholder for the Foreign Language Movies section in the iTunes Store.
