About two weeks ago, I did something I very rarely EVER do. I broke my phone. 3 years – no drops, dings, nicks or bad scratches. Originally, I had planned on upgrading my iPhone 3G at the end of the month but I was shuffling some stuff around on my desk and the phone slid …

This one came directly from a friend and fellow iPhone user I met in Columbus, Ohio last weekend. At the moment, AT&T doesn’t officially support tethering. They have a seperate 3G USB adapter product that costs an extra $60/month. However, with the latest 3.0 OS release, somebody over at BenM.atĀ figured out a way to modify …

Not much new to report, just trying to get re-acclimated to the oppressive heat during the Georgia Summer while watching Maddie grow up. Madeline has pretty much given up crawling and is now walking almost full time! Apple just announced the new iPhone 3G S is set for release on June 17th – looking over …

I could easily go broke keeping up with the technology equivalent of the Joneses. I mean seriously, some this stuff is pretty frickin cool. Laptop sexy: …
