El Reg iPhone app rated a flaccid 12+

H dotNET
Thumb Up

At last....

....someone spotted the bigger fail.

A news app is not really an app if it can't download stories for off line. As such its a bit half baked, you might as well use the mobile site. Guardian/BBC apps are great for this and I use them all the time as a result.

Other than that I find it works smoothly and intuitively on my gayPhone 4...

Comments? I think less important. Funny that everyone moaning about the lack of comments are those that, um, comment. Ergo those that don't give a monkeys won't.

Hacker brings multitouch to Google's Nexus One

H dotNET

you have to wonder...

... who/what this Cyanogen person/entity/gas is.

There's a project hosted on google code that is devoted to making an updater for the Cyanogen ROMs:

http://code.google.com/p/cyanogen-updater/

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that Cyanogen may well be an oompa loompa, or at least related to one.

quite right too.

I don't want my little angel irradiated by these porn mongering internet boxes. They could've at least made them organic. What's even worse is the terrible view given to me by one of the engineers bending over to look into one of these things. Dear little Porscher's eyes burned.

Report: Apple snagged Google Maps rival

H dotNET

looked at placebase.com

And its api... very similar to gmaps.

http://www.pushpin.com/api/1.3/docs/smallmapcontrol.html

'Meh' is the only thing that springs to mind.

I expect Apple's version of streetview, instead of blurring faces, will create a jobsian world where all people are avatars wearing jeans, black turtle necks and glasses.
