I put this rugged external hard drive through its paces, and it’s glorious! My review is, I mean; the drive’s pretty good, too.
Thrill to my poetic review of Superbrothers’ Sword & Sworcery EP.
This week I review Grove’s beautiful iPhone 4 case. It’s made of bamboo and it smells like lemon!
On June 1, I’ll be giving one FOR FREE to one of the people who’ve kindly donated to the show. So, you know. Hint, hint.
Engadget has a review of the new Android phone by Samsung on their site. It sounds pretty great, and if I could be assured that the Galaxy S II doesn’t randomly shut down in the mornings like the Galaxy S I does — which is goddamn annoying — I’d be over it like crap on a toilet.
The Unofficial Apple Weblog has a “First look” at some piece of crap iPad app called Twitepad. Here’s the video:
Good lord, have the programmers of this — assuming they are programmers, and not just blind opossums — ever seen an Apple application? This is terrible! They’ve taken this beautiful device with its wonderful screen and turned it into a crap-filled wasteland. Serious, I feel like vomiting, both from my extreme disgust at the design of this application, and the nausea I’m feeling at watching that disembodied hand fly around the screen for 2 minutes. Mac software should have a sense of elegance and class to it, not look like remains on a sheet of toilet paper after a goddamn Chipotle binge.
Makers of Twitepad: Why do you hate Apple’s customers? Why do you hate humanity?
This supposed Twitter app has a Tweetdeck-esque column layout, but the majority of the functionality seems to be geared toward displaying website content. I’ve got news for you, you execrable hacks: there’s already a browser on the iPad. It’s called Mobile Safari, and unlike your effort, it doesn’t give me violent diarrhea when it loads.
They’ve made this Tweetdesk-esque layout, but rendered it so poorly that the text is basically illegible. Twitpic images appear in a browser window (rather than like in Tweetdeck, which just, you know, opens the goddamn image itself without requiring you to download a whole goddamn page), and for some reason these blind opossum programmers forgot that the iPad has a flyout virtual keyboard, so that when you want to actually type something, the keyboard sits over the content you’re responding to.
We need a Razzies but for crappy iPhone and iPad applications. If we had one, this would take first prize.
Kudos, you bastards. You finally found something scotch isn’t strong enough to make me forget. But I’m going to try like hell for the next 12 hours. Somebody better take my car keys away from me.
