The Gadget Cube

By Anonymous

Make your shiny work for you


Managing editor-news Andrea Maria Cecil funnels her gadget obsession into her Business Journal blog, the gadget cube. Learn how your "shinies" can make you more productive and efficient on the job. Here are some excerpts:

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you 3G in the County of York, Pennsylvania.

After nearly 2.5 years of promises from AT&T employees at the York Galleria and West Manchester Mall saying 3G was coming "soon," it looks like the carrier has finally made good on those "promises."

No official word from AT&T yet. But who cares? I've got 3G now! (I spent most of the weekend, constantly pressing my phone's sleep/ wake button to see if I had 3G in whatever municipality I happened to be in. I did.) ...

And here we have it.

The New York Times reports Google's Android mobile operating system ... could be coming as soon as October on T-Mobile's network.

Reportedly, Android will be running on an HTC phone that is being called the "Dream" in the gadget blogosphere.

And, of course, it's on YouTube (can anyone shed light on why this guy is breathing like Darth Vader?!) ...

IBM has a Web site dedicated to touting its Lotus Notes app that it says is coming this year for the iPhone.

Um, OK. Does anybody use Lotus Notes anymore? I guess they must since IBM is putting effort into creating an iPhone app. Maybe large corporations?

The last time I heard anyone talking about Lotus Notes it was the '90s.

Cube readers, are you using Lotus Notes? Why?

So I'm starting to think I'm some kind of anomaly. In a good way.

I keep reading stories and blog posts about how iPhone 3G is having all sorts of issues ...

... Aside from the occasional buggy app kicking me out to a home screen or rebooting my phone (only happened twice), I can't say that I have any complaints. I lurve my iPhone.
