An old friend runs an irreverent blog called Phonefreek, which features his own amusing and foul-mouthed writings on the state of the smartphone market. It’s definitely an active marketplace, so I think there’s plenty worth writing about.
Since we both possess the charming quality whereby we share our unsolicited opinions, he asked me to write some guest posts. Naturally, I was honored and spat out two such posts in the past few months:
- Some thoughts on the possibility of an iPhone 4 recall
- A fond farewell to Palm
A friend asked me for tips on how to use custom/better icons on the iPhone home screen for bookmarks to certain web sites. I figured I’d just write it up here.
- Start by deleting and re-saving the bookmark. Some popular sites (like NewsGator) have added custom iPhone icons, but if you made your bookmarks the first day you’re stuck with the default.
- This trick from Cameron Hunt allows you to choose from some prefab icons suitable for general use or certain popular sites.
- If you’re comfortable with HTML, you can dig a little deeper with this trick and use any icon you want.
