The other night, I couldn’t decide between going to the gym or seeing a movie (I live a terribly exciting life). Naturally, my first thought was that I should ask the Internet. I’ve tried this on my preferred social networks before, but I never get the simple responses that I want. What I really need is a simple yes or no.

Not surprisingly, there’s a few apps for that. I’ve tried out a couple, but one of my favourites has become Seesaw, an app that combines light social networking with making polls and getting answers to life’s most complicated questions (such as, “Which shirt should I wear tonight?”). Want to know if Seesaw is for you? Read on. (more…)

Valentine’s Day at my house this year is going to be a little different than in past years. That’s the 36 week mark in my wife’s pregnancy, meaning that she’s officially full term at that point and we’re on baby watch. My gut tells me that means I should get her something special.

Talking to friends about their V-Day plans, I realized that most of them communicate with the same device. They usually buy the same model of iPhone at the same time, and then they’re both using the same device. But that’s not always the case. What about you? Do you and your significant other both have iPhones? Let us know in the poll to the right!

More often than my brothers would like to admit, I like to poll people about some discussion we’re having at the moment. These are usually strangers, and it’s usually a handful that I don’t think will hit or mace me. I’m happy to announce that I no longer need to do that, thanks to an app by Input Factory Inc. called Polar, which lets you poll complete strangers without the awkward initial conversation. Let’s see how it stacks up. (more…)

For Christmas last year, I bought my parents an AppleTV, and promptly found out that their archaic television setup wouldn’t work with the system. They debated buying a new TV, but at the time, just couldn’t justify the buy, so the AppleTV sat there collecting dust. Yesterday, after months of waxing philosophic over the subject, they broke down and bought a new set, and we connected the AppleTV immediately, making them happy people.

This got me thinking about the conversion they’ve made to Apple products over the past year, which has been quite extensive. A year ago, they each owned an iPod and an iPhone, but today, they have an iMac, AppleTV and more, and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon. Then I started counting my own Apple collection, and wondered about how many you all own.

So satisfy my curiosity: How many Apple products do you own?

The iPhone 4S has been out on the market for a few weeks now, and even though it’s flying off the virtual shelves, not everyone is convinced if it’s a good purchase or not. What do you think?

Sure, we could make this complicated by bringing in contract info and all that, but let’s just make this plain and simple: Is it worth it? Forget about whether your contract is ready to expire. If all things were equal, is the iPhone 4S worth the purchase or does it just not hold enough allure for you to buy one? Let us know in the poll to the right.
