Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited and You: Find Out if You’re a Good Match!

Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited and You: Find Out if You’re a Good Match!

When word first got out about Amazon’s (then-rumored) Kindle Unlimited, I was more than a little excited. Unlimited e-books! $10 a month! I’m going to read everything all of the time, forever! When the program actually rolled out, I was underwhelmed. Yes, having access to 600,000 books for $10 a month is a ...

Netflix, Verizon FiOS and (More) Utter Helplessness

Netflix, Verizon FiOS and (More) Utter Helplessness

I pay Verizon FiOS about $163 a month for internet and TV service. I’ve been a Netflix customer for close to six years now. Yet even with my financial loyalty to both of these companies, I can’t watch a movie on Netflix while I eat dinner. Thanks, net neutrality! Okay, to be fair, I can watch a movie on Netflix at ...

Nothing is Ever Worth Buying

Nothing is Ever Worth Buying

Nothing is ever worth buying. There’s always a deal to be had. Everything is overpriced until it becomes obsolete or irrelevant. Even though summer just started, Black Friday is on my mind. Why? Just about any movie or video game that comes out between now and then will be heavily marked down come the day after ...

Facebook’s Mood Experiment and Utter Helplessness

Facebook’s Mood Experiment and Utter Helplessness

The scariest part about Facebook’s “mood experiment” is that there’s nothing we could do about it. I’ve posted plenty of stories on this site about Facebook about ways to protect your account from Facebook’s tweaks and updates. Facebook’s played relatively dirty in the past, but has always left some an ...

‘Yo, Slingshot!’ Two Weird Messaging Apps, Reviewed.

‘Yo, Slingshot!’ Two Weird Messaging Apps, Reviewed.

Mobile messaging apps may be a dime a dozen, but they’re still big business – and, in fact, worth many, many dimes. In the last week, two messaging apps have made big waves in the mobile world: Slingshot and Yo. Both apps are pretty simple and minimal – or maybe I’m dumb and I just don’t know how to use them. ...

Apps, Fragmentation and the Future of TV

Apps, Fragmentation and the Future of TV

Are you watching the World Cup? I am, and I’m loving every minute of it. If I’m home and there’s a World Cup game being played, it’s on my TV. Even if I’m doing other things, it’s on in the background … it’s easy to tell when something exciting is happening (or about to happen) because the announcers start ...

The Best Video Games That E3 2014 Had to Offer

The Best Video Games That E3 2014 Had to Offer

Another round of E3 keynotes have come and gone, leaving video game fans waiting months (or more) to get their hands on the games they’ve drooled over this week. While I haven't spent much time playing video games lately – I spent more time watching all five major addresses (Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony and Nintendo) ...

Is Apple’s Software Hurting its Hardware?

Is Apple’s Software Hurting its Hardware?

Count me among the many excited by Apple’s WWDC keynote on Monday. A bunch of the new iOS features seemed great, I love getting free OS X updates for my MacBook and the developers’ reactions to the dev stuff Apple showed off left me looking forward to apps that’ll launch in the near future. Even though Apple ...

File Sharing on the iPad Just Blew My Mind

File Sharing on the iPad Just Blew My Mind

I’d like to think I know most of what my iPad can do, but every once in a while I’m pleasantly surprised by a new feature. To kill time on a recent road trip, I wanted to load up my iPad with movies and comic books, but I wasn’t sure how. I figured, based on the sheer volume of apps available in the App Store, that ...

HBO’s Silicon Valley is More Than Just Funny: It Gets Tech Right

HBO’s Silicon Valley is More Than Just Funny: It Gets Tech Right

The first season of HBO’s newest comedy, Silicon Valley, wraps up on Sunday, June 1. If you’re not already watching it, you should be. It’s easy to catch up on, too – there have only been seven half-hour episodes so far, and you have about a week and a half (including a holiday weekend!) before the ...
