Before I left on a business trip recently, I went out and spent some cash on a nice pair of noise-canceling headphones. At first, I loved the sound and was amazed at how it shut out the static around me. Problem was, they felt really flimsy and although they looked cool, they got uncomfortable quickly.
It made me wonder how many of our readers spend some decent cash on their headphones, or if they just use the pair provided in the box with their iPhone. So let’s put it to a poll: What kind of headphones do you use?
I’ve been a car guy for a lot longer than I’ve ever owned anything with an Apple logo, and in that time I’ve used a lot of tips and tricks to get my cars functioning the way I want them to. Then the other day, I was thinking about all of the things that I do with my iPhone while I’m in the car (except for texting, of course), and how much it’s improved the driver’s experience.
So I decided to jot a few things down, and next thing I knew I had a pretty big list in front of me. Let’s get into them after the break.
We should be finding out about the new iPhone any day now, but there’s been talk recently about AT&T and Verizon dropping the prices on the iPhone 4 in anticipation of the new model. This is nothing new, they’ve been doing this for years now. But it made me wonder about our reading audience. When do you all buy your iPhones? Do you stand in line on launch day, wait a bit, or scoop them up at sale prices? Let us know in the poll to the right.
I went on a business trip recently, and before I left I packed up my usual stuff in my carry-on bag: iPad, MacBook Pro, chargers, a few magazines and of course, my iPhone. I had seven hours on a plane one way and nine the other, so I figured that between all three Apple devices I could be entertained and get some work done.
As it turns out though, I could’ve saved myself a ton of room if I had just packed my iPhone by itself. That’s right, all the work and everything I needed to do to get things done was all in my pocket the entire time, I just didn’t realize it until I was on my way home. It came down to four simple things that made life easier, which I’ll explain after the jump.

When I worked at a local office, I used to walk to a nearby restaurant for lunch and watch a movie on my iPhone while eating. But now, I eat more at home or with a buddy, so the opportunity doesn’t really present itself to watch anything with the iPhone. What about you? Do you prefer to use the iPhone as one of your main video sources or would you rather watch video on something bigger like an iPad or regular television? Let us know in the poll.
I went on a business trip out of the country recently, and before I left I checked with AT&T to find out what my international phone rates were looking like. Once I regained consciousness, I told my family that I would get ahold of them with FaceTime anytime I needed to talk.
And that’s what I did, but after using it for a bit it became … awkward. But why? Let’s talk it out after the break.
A week or so back, I tweeted about a statistic I had seen online. The premise was that the average iOS customer spends around $150 on apps. At the time, I joked that I probably spent more than that in a few months, but then I started thinking about it. Frankly, it kind of festered in my head for a bit. Why does that number seem low to me?
So to get it out of my head, I decided to put it to a poll. Please select from the options on the right, and then we can check back on the results later to see how much our readers spend per year.
Whenever you buy a product, you always run the risk of something newer, bigger and better coming along sometime soon. But with Apple products, most of the time you have a general idea when the next big thing will be on the shelves, because they follow a fairly predictable pattern.
But then the expected release date for the iPhone 5 came and went and here we are with no idea when (or if) the iPhone 5 will make an appearance in 2011. Sure, all signs are that it’s coming out in September, but with Apple, no one can ever be sure.
So what do you do if you need a phone now but believe a new one should be out any day now? Let’s talk about that after the break.
