Tony is more likely to shop online than Julia, according to Kogan’s numbers

Australia’s self-appointed online retail antagonist Ruslan Kogan -- while possibly enjoying a slow day at the office -- has crunched his online traffic numbers to reveal that the most popular names of 2010 online shoppers on the Kogan site were John, Peter, David, Michael and Paul (in addition to some information that you might actually one day use, on how and why Australians shop online).
Min-i-Mags iPhone Application

The 9 greatest online threats to watch out for in 2011 [IMPORTANT READING]

Some of the most popular gadgets and services from 2010, like Google's Android and Google TV, and Apple's iPhone and Mac OS X platform, are predicted to be major targets for cyberattacks this year. McAfee and its researchers also predict acts of "hacktivism" to be more common, as more groups commit politically motivated cyberattacks like those of Wikileaks.

Thinking is so overrated: Google ruins Sudoku for everyone [VIDEO]

Sudoku. What a wonderful puzzle game. Calisthenics for the brain. Keeps the ol' gray matter in fighting trim, yes, it does. To which Google replies: Pppbbhhhhttt.

How does it do that? iPhone app translates text on the fly

If your reaction after watching this video is "they're yanking my chain," you're not alone. We had a similar reaction. It doesn't seem feasible than an app could not just translate the words on an object, but project the translation on the object itself. Right?

Apple feeling heat to lift ban on Adobe Flash, Melbourne analyst says

Melbourne-based telcom analyst Ovum says Flash 10.1 support will grow across the smartphone market, leading to pressure from developers and users for Apple to support the technology on its iPad, iPhone and iPod touch devices.

Droid, iPhone4, Microsoft Phone 7: Which can take the heat?

There are already countless videos on the Interwebs that present side-by-side comparisons of the most popular smart-phones. You know -- which has the fastest browser, the brightest screen, the quickest boot-up. This is not one of those videos. All we can say to the person who put this video together is, "Dude, we wish we had that kind of money to burn."

If Sesame Street ran Apple’s marketing, it would look something like this [Introducing the...

After unveiling the iPogo 300, we at Stately Anthill Manor can only hope Sesame Street will attempt a send-up of the "Really?" campaign for the new Windows Phone 7. Or those Droid spots in which humans get all fuzzy inside over turning into machines. Yeah, those campaigns need an unhealthy dose of Elmo.

Have chunky fingers? Here’s an iPhone the size of a fridge!

We were tickled beyond words this week to discover that three Austrian developers have at last solved the problem those of us with fat fingers have when navigating a phone's touchscreen. They've created an iPhone that's as large as a refrigerator door. Your biggest, most chunky-digited AFL star can now swish through his apps with ease.

Could this adorable, app-enhanced doggie be YouTube’s next pop star?

The music industry's backlash against Auto-Tune is well-documented, though it reportedly endures on countless CDs and on every episode of "Glee." LaDiDa isn't designed to be insidious; it's tech is actually quite cool. The user chooses a musical tempo and style, then serenades the iPhone or iPad. The app uses the voice to compose a melody. Think of it as karaoke in reverse.

Playbook toys with Apple’s onions

When the Apple iPad came out, I think I speak for most folks when I said, “Ooo, another premature Apple release!” (with emphasis on that initial bleat). This is because Apple, in my opinion, tends to push its products on us a little too early. Hence Blackberry’s confident stride into the same as yet tentatively-described ether; the Blackberry Playbook.

iPhone loses ground to Android, Symbian and BlackBerry. Will this cause an 'almighty stink'...

In a development that's unlikely to be nearly as amusing as a toilet flush simulator, iPhone is losing ground to its competitors, likely to heighten rivalry between hardware and app developers alike. We've already seen how an almighty stink can arise over iPhone app developers. Take the case of Pull My Finger versus iFart.
