iPhone Browser

It appears Apple’s iPhone uses the following User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU like Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/420+ (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/3.0 Mobile/1A543a Safari/419.3 A quick search of the log files turns up a hit for me. IP address is from Apple, so I’d presume it was using WiFi to connect via Apple’s corporate […]

Drobo for network storage?

Drobo initially didn’t impress me to much, but after watching a demo I’m somewhat impressed. The positives: The hotswapping, RAID-like (but not RAID) redundancy is awesome. That’s perfect for backup/bulk storage purposes. Transfer isn’t bad (Up to read 22MB/s write 20MB/s) Power consumption idles at about 12 watts which isn’t bad. Adding storage capacity is […]

There are a fair amount of serious issues, and I wouldn’t recommend running it yet, but keep an eye out. This can really change the office productivity […]

Segway Still Cool?

Is the Segway still cool? I don’t know, I tried one and liked it, but I think I might like this even better. [Hat tip: Gizmodo]

Camino 1.5

Camino 1.5 is out. It’s a great product for Mac users. Lets face it, the best browsers are on the Mac right now. Camino, Firefox, Safari, Shiira, and OmniWeb. All provide an excellent user experience. Camino is a great balance between the Gecko rendering engine (which has the benefit of extra market share thanks to […]

Easter Egg For Google Streets?

I’m thinking this is an easter egg. Reminds me of the old Apple easter egg with the developers faces.

Google Gears

In case you were wondering what Google Gears meant to the planned support for Offline Web Applications in Firefox 3.0, here’s an article you may be interested in. No definitive answers, but does mention the possibility of combining ideas. Google Gears is pretty cool, but I’d be much more comfortable if Google submitted the API […]
