tgxmedia.com’s Wordify ($4) is just plain cool. The Mac App Store title serves one specific purpose: it turns a picture of your choice into “typographic artwork,” replacing dark spots in a photo with text you supply. The result is a vectorized PDF, ready in seconds. …

If your iPhone is feeling a bit sluggish after recent carrier updates from AT&T or T-Mobile, iTweakiOS has a guide for installing your own custom carrier bundle that should bring increased speeds.

Every once in a while, your cell phone carrier pushes out an update to you phone that changes the preferences so it can find the best signal. However, that’s not always the fastest signal, and in the case of a couple recent updates on both AT&T and T-Mobile, those updates might have actually slowed down your connection a bit. iTweakiOS put together a custom carrier bundle that overrides the official one and forces your phone to hunt down the fastest signal. The new carrier bundle works on the iPhone 5 on T-Mobile. It also works on the iPhone 5, iPad, and iPad Mini on AT&T.

You don’t have to be jailbroken to use this and the process happens in entirely in iTunes, so it’s not too difficult. That said, we didn’t have a chance to test it, so proceed at your at own risk. Head over to iTweakiOS for the full guide.

Today LinkedIn is releasing an overhauled iPhone and Android app, as well as a matching mobile website, all with a cleaner, sleeker layout that makes it much easier to navigate. The company’s old design featured a sequence of nonstop gray blocks that were packed with information, but now LinkedIn is replacing those with big and bright tiles that give more room to each of the stories in the news stream, similar to the iPad app that it released last year. Larger photos and text fill up every story, and each update is separated by a simple break between the tiles. The new app also replaces the previous version’s icon-based navigation menu with a left-hand sliding pane, which includes personalized shortcuts and generally lets users move…

It seems like a great idea: Provide instant corrections to web-surfers when they run across obviously false information on the Internet. But a new study suggests that this type of tool may not be a panacea for dispelling inaccurate beliefs, particularly among people who already want to believe the falsehood.

“And still, I loathed being a child. Plainly stated, being a child was not—as used to be said around the time I was a child—my bag. Childhood was a foreign country to me. Everyone has an internal age. A time in life when one is of not one’s best, then at the very least one’s most authentic self. When your outside and inside are in sync, and soma and psyche mesh as perfectly as they’re going to. I always felt that my internal clock was calibrated somewhere between 47 and 53 years old.”
