Vlingo iPhone App Review

If you always wanted a little more functionality from the standard voice control found on the iPhone 3GS, or you really don’t like typing with the virtual keyboard, then Vlingo’s recently updated application is likely to be of interest. Vlingo is voice control taken to the next level.  Instead of just being able to make a call or search for a phrase, this application adds Google Maps search, Facebook and Twitter status updates plus email and SMS messages too.  Upon starting the app you’re presented with a large button saying ‘press and speak’, with a tip for what you can […]

How to Force-Quit Your iPhone

Is your iPhone stuck on the Apple logo?  Is it locked in a non-responsive app?  In both of these cases, you need to perform a force-quit to get your iPhone up and working again.  Thankfully it’s really easy to do and to remember: Press and hold the On/Off/Sleep button on the top of your iPhone.

Idiotically Expensively Armoured iPhones

Bejeweling otherwise inexpensive objects is the preserve of people with more money than sense, even if you only count the cash they’re carrying, and even if you wait until they’re naked.
