It’s got that great big screen! I can see the pictures are bigger! Right? Wrong. Oh, well, you’re not wrong about the way the pictures look while you’re taking them. The iPad’s Retina Display shows you photos at 2048 by 1536 pixels, which, at the 9.7 inch size of the screen, works out to […]
Anything we can do to get more out of the web by doing less ourselves is a good thing. Which is why we’re in love with IFTTT. It’s not especially new, but we love the way it takes some of our favorite web services and daisy-chains them together to do brand new things. There’s a […]
This Saturday marks the beginning of National Parks Week. By the number of mud covered jeeps and trucks in the Griffin parking lot, you can bet we’re a wilderness loving bunch.

If you’re anything like us, you’ll be traveling someplace or another in the next few weeks, and your iPhone will be your copilot. Streaming audio from Pandora, Soundcloud, and Spotify playlists (like this one, for example) always have something new to hear, which can really take the edge off of those “Are we there yet” […]
Like many, I’ve found that while the iPhone 5’s performance and screen are amazing, its battery life felt like it was somewhat less than my trusty iPhone 4.
