I’m much older and therefore wiser, right? Well, that’s what I thought until I heard the words “check mate” about 20 minutes into the game. I didn’t even see it coming. Naturally, I wanted to practice my chess skills and ran past Foursight again in the Apple App Store. Continue reading Foursight is Next-Gen Chess and Checkers

Instagram, the “fast beautiful photo sharing for your iPhone” app, announced version 1.8 today with several really usable updates for its 4.25 million users. Me being one of them. I’m kind of an addict. No really, I am. And so are my pic friends @runnergirltrain, @jtenn, @yoshi_aloha, @ryanerlandsen, @imapurrson, @katiejea, @moonsent, etc.
