So it's an established fact that Apple's new Maps App is a epic fail. With missing cities, "melted" bridges and dams and even a duplicated island in Asia, Apple's maps roll out has been anything but smooth. But what about maps for the Baltimore area? I took a swing through the Inner Harbor to see what mayhem I could find and the results were worth of a giggle or two. Among the findings: The Spirit of Baltimore (a small cruise ship) has run aground near Light Street Light Street also now has a drive-thru cupcake joint.

My apples looked good until recently. Now they have tiny black spots and gray blotches that look like mildew but are dry. Are they ruined? Rains last month created conditions for two fungi: flyspeck and sooty blotch. Both of these fungi can be washed off. Soak and scrub off or just peel the apples. Fortunately, they don't affect eating quality. The leaves of my rhododendron are getting rough and brown patches. Is this a fungus I should spray? This time of year, those symptoms would be caused by the snowy tree cricket.

Just when you thought Apple had done enough damage to your wallet, the maker of the hit iPhone and iPad mobile devices may soon be releasing what I'm gonna call a "tweener" -- a mini iPad that's smaller than the original one, but bigger than the new iPhone 5. Engadget and other tech news sites are citing a report in Taiwan's Economic Daily News that says Pegatron, an electronic device manufacturer, snagged 50 to 60 percent of the mini iPad...

Debbie Housden from Baltimore was looking for a recipe for an apple crisp that she said was published in the Sunpapers at least 10 years ago. She said the crisp was made with apple pie filling instead of apples and used corn flakes in the topping. Diane Crupi from Bend, Ore., sent in a photocopy of a recipe for an apple crisp that almost certainly is the one that Housden was in search of. Unfortunately, the clipping is not dated, nor does it she say where it was clipped from, but I can tell by the way it is formatted that it is an old Recipe Finder column.

It's looking like this Wednesday, Sept. 12, is the day that Apple will likely unveil its fifth iteration of its blockbuster iPhone mobile device. I've been largely tuned out from all the buzz in recent weeks because, really, you don't really know what Apple is going to debut. But I dipped my toes in the rumor waters today, to get up to speed, and here's what I pulled up from the depths: * The iPhone 5 will supposedly have a mini-dock connector -- not that wide port we're all used to, according to SlashGear . That could mean all of us will need to go and buy new speakers and other accessories that are compatible with our new iPhones.

When Ravens safety Bernard Pollard got to the NFL, he noticed the veterans playing a card game in their downtime. And then he saw the sums of money being wagered. "I've seen people dropping $70,000 or $80,000," he said Monday after practice. Pollard hopes Bourre, an app released Friday that he conceived and paid for, will introduce fans to the game without their having to risk any real cash. Available for download on Apple products — iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch — for $1.99, Bourre represents the culmination of a long-ago dream hatched during hours spent playing video games with a teammate in Texas.

" Snow Cone Maker " by Tiny Toys Inc., is in the top 30 of free gaming apps on the Apple store, which is not surprising since half of the country is experiencing oven-like conditions this summer. Snow cones (or "snow balls," or "shaved ice" depending on your region) represent Americana in July like few other traditions. As an enterprising 16 year-old desperate to buy a used car, I toiled one summer at my local snow cone stand to earn a few (under the table) dollars.

Microsoft on Monday unveiled a nice looking tablet computer called Surface , or rather, a pair of devices that are targeting the tablet market currently dominated by Apple and Android. Surface looks pretty cool. I like the thin tactile keyboard that also doubles as a screen cover. You get the impression Microsoft beat Apple to the punch by adding a keyboard with this design, which Apple first introduced with its own Smart Cover a couple years back. Microsoft is positioning the device as one that's good for both consumption and creation.
