The Solution to Vertical Video

Friday, July 17th, 2015

The introduction of video on the iPhone 3GS introduced an issue into society: vertical video. If you’re reading this online, then you’ve likely seen a vertical video. The iPhone 3GS only recorded SD (640×480) video. Now, iPhones record HD (1080p). Thus, people are sharing around huge vertical videos via social media, SMS, etc. If you’re […]

DKTHINKS – Siri in AppleTV

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Switching my iPhone from AT&T to T-Mobile

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

AT&T was great and everything, but it was just costing too much. As you can read here, I’ve used AT&T’s services for almost two years. T-Mobile is $10-$15 cheaper than I was paying on AT&T.
