The Rise and Fall of Camera+

Camera+ ($1.99 USD) has quickly become one of the most popular iPhone photography apps to be released.  Most phone cameras are decidedly lo-fi and apps like these make the most out of those tiny cameras.  You can take something lackluster and turn it into a cool image.  The ability to get the shot, make edits, […]

Ramen Review: HooRooRook

Instant Ramen Soup is a staple of college dorms and office lunch rooms all around the world. It’s cheap, easy to make, filling and tasty. Now that it’s winter, hot soup is a great way to help keep warm. Over the years, I’ve tried many different brands and flavors. Some have been good and some […]

Review: Puffer Alternatives

Photographers have been using light modifiers on their external flash guns and strobes for a long time now.  But the lowly on-board flash has always been regarded as useless.  It’s low power and close proximity to the lens makes it less than ideal for creative photography.  It’s become more of an “it’s there in-case” tool, […]

Review: Top Gun for iPhone/iPod Touch

Recently released on the iTunes App Store, Top Gun is what you would expect this type of game to be.  The premise is simple, shoot the bad guys and stay out of the “Danger Zones”.  I have to say, Paramount did a really good job with it.  Click on for my review!

Teksandwich Old Hardware Series: Keeping it Old School!

Remember the days before iPhones and Blackberries?  Mobile phones were just that…phones.  They made and received calls, not much else.  It was a much simpler time.  The old phones were built like tanks and were made to last.  Today’s phones are almost disposable.  Most people barely hang on to one for more than a year […]

Saving the planet…or at least trying!

For the most part, we are all trying to do our best to lessen our effect on the environment.  Even simple things like switching to compact fluorescent lights, using re-usable bags at grocery stores, etc… make a difference.  One big thing I always see on TV and magazines is a water collection system.  Why use […]
