When I’m making up the schedule every week, I try to do a mix of different articles that then spread out over the course of the month. There are a few different types I have to work with, but every so often I just wonder — what is it you would like to read?

We all had a life prior to the iPhone. Maybe you’re new to the scene and had an Android phone for a bit, or possibly you had a BlackBerry before this one. Heck, maybe it’s something completely different. Well we here at iPhone.AppStorm want to know what you had prior to the iPhone. And if you’re feeling frisky, let us know in the comments why you switched. Thanks!

Last week, the Internet was all in a tizzy about the latest video out of Google, a concept titled Project Glass. It’s this headset that puts a single screen in front of your right eye and displays information about the environment you’re in. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a moment and check out the video, it’s worth the time.

Some are saying that this idea is genius, while others are chastising it as a dumb move and a piece of vaporware. But it does open up a conversation, particularly in regards to the iPhone: What is the future of the device?  (more…)

Monday held some big news, as it was announced that Instagram is going to be acquired by Facebook for $1 billion. There were many mixed feelings on this move by the photo sharing service. Some felt that it was unfair to see their precious network disappear into another one, but others — namely users of Facebook — felt that such a purchase would enhance their photo sharing experience. The latter is probably correct, but there’s more to it than that.

Facebook’s main goal of this purchase is to gain users. Just think about it: Facebook is a service that relies on the number of users who frequently visit. When that number begins to diminish, they search for a way to get new users. This acquisition — that’s right, $1 billion for users — is the answer to that problem. Keep reading for a look at what could happen to Instagram. (more…)
