Used iPads selling well on eBay and Gazelle {}

Mar 8th 2011 7:45PM I've sold a bunch of iPhones to them in the past, and it took maybe 2-3 days for the boxes to arrive. It's been almost a week for this current one, but with how many requests they're processing, I'm not surprised.

Used iPads selling well on eBay and Gazelle {}

Mar 8th 2011 7:33PM Got my used iPad 3G+WiFi locked in at Gazelle for $446, right before Apple announced the price drop for the old models. Gazelle is now giving just $340 for the same model.


Why I gave up my iPhone {}

Jul 2nd 2010 6:10PM Why not just take the SIM card out of the 3GS, put your wife's in there and then put your SIM card into the pre-paid Nokia you bought? Then everyone can keep their numbers.

Also, if you're both on AT&T, calls to each other are not counted against your minutes. Any minute usage was actual calls to non-AT&T numbers.

It seems like your intent was to give up paying a lot for cell phone service instead of the iPhone. Maybe the article would have been a bit more relevant if it were presented in a way to give people tips on how to save cash while still keeping cell phones. Giving up the iPhone part seems to be a byproduct of just wanting to save money.

Apple, AT&T sued over iPad data plan change {}

Jun 25th 2010 11:35AM It's not AT&T or Apple's fault that T-Mobile uses different GSM frequencies. The unlocked iPad doesn't work on Verizon or Sprint either, but nobody seems to take issue with that.

iPhone 4 cell reception suffers when picked up? {}

Jun 23rd 2010 9:29PM I just tried this out with my wife's new iPhone 4 (arrived today) and it does not experience this issue.

I held the phone normally in my left hand for about a minute and it held steady at 5 bars of service. I then held the phone while completely covering the antenna seams in the steel band for a minute and noticed the signal drop from 5 bars to 4.

I'm guessing the severe signal loss is happening for people in spotty 3G coverage areas or the phones they are using are just defective. It's obviously not an inherent issue with all phones.

TUAW review and giveaway: Pulse News Reader {}

Jun 3rd 2010 1:21PM I wish I could return the App and get a refund. I bought it the other day and found that you can only add 20 RSS feeds to it. What a scam.

E-Ink Shocker! Amazon CEO says color Kindle is 'still a long way out' {Engadget}

May 25th 2010 5:11PM @BecauseItsNotGoogle I have to say, reading on my Kindle for long periods is much more comfortable than reading on my iPad. I take my iPad to work to read during breaks, but if I'm sitting around reading for a couple of hours my Kindle is WAY less straining on my eyes than the iPad is.

Found Footage: Apple pulls iSlam Muhammad app {}

May 20th 2010 3:35PM While I disagree with Apple's decision, this conversation was hardly entertaining, much less "highly entertaining." I understand that the developer is upset, but that's not the way to go about getting it changed. The Apple guy on the phone obviously wasn't the one making the decision to pull the app and had no power to change the decision.

Verizon iPhone chatter is getting harder (than usual) to ignore {Engadget}

May 7th 2010 6:20PM @RidleyGriff Verizon doesn't have to be *solely* LTE, just *fully* LTE. It makes most sense for Apple to wait until Verizon has their voice network on LTE as well as data, which should be ~2 years away. True, it may be 5-8 years before they drop CDMA but who cares? Apple didn't make the iPhone 3G when AT&T was *solely* 3G, but they at least had a network that could support both voice and data over 3G, meaning the phone needed just one chipset.

Verizon iPhone chatter is getting harder (than usual) to ignore {Engadget}

May 7th 2010 4:25PM @RayVoid It's not about making it obsolete, it's about modifying the manufacturing process and the time and effort involved. Apple loves to make their own products obsolete, but in this case Verizon would be doing it for them.
