IPhone Lines Form Even in the Burbs - Reporting from Issaquah, WA


This morning I ventured out to the local AT&T store in Issaquah, Washington before 9 am this morning. I talked to a few of the people in line, some had been waiting since 6 am. Those who waited longer had already come and gone with their new iPhone 5.  The store offered Krispy Kreme donut holes, bottled water and a few cans of Red Bull. Some people were selling back previous iPhones or other devices, others were complementing their existing Apple-ware with a new iPhone. Ages ranged from early twenties into the sixties. Folding chairs and pop coolers where still in evidence.

Review: Satechi Bluetooth Multi-Media Remote Control


The $39.99 Satechi Bluetooth Multi-Media Remote Control for iPhone, iPad & other Bluetooth enabled iOS devices is a handy companion. At 1.38” by 3.56” it is small. It only weighs one ounce (I’ll get back to the disadvantages of being too diminutive at the end of the post).

Podio Brings App Execution to the iPad


I have been watching Podio for some time. Their platform allows end users to create personal and team applications from components. Although programmers can add value, Podio doesn’t require programming to create an application. I wasn’t the only one noticing them. Citrix, most well know as the maker of GoToMeeting, recently acquired Podio.

Review: Victorinox Altmont 2.0 Vertical-Zip Laptop Backpack and Laptop Backpack


As back-to-school shopping transforms into the reality of the school room, I have a couple more backpacks that arrived that may sway your last minute shopping, but only if you are looking for straight backpacks, not iPacks.  I include these because some of the backpacks made with tablets in mind seem to think that people aren’t going to put their tablets in other cases. I know very few people who take their iPad out naked, and many of the iPad enabled pockets get cramped quickly if you’ve chosen a keyboard case or a more rugged case like on from Otterbox or Griffin.

Slappa Puts Camera Face of M.A.S.K. Backpack


It may not be as sexy as talking about court rulings or speculating about the iPad mini, but I thought it was kind of cool that SLAPPA released an SLR camera face for the M.A.S.K. customizable backpack I covered last week: Slappa M.A.S.K. Jedi Mind Trix Custom Build Backpack Review.

MoPix Video Service Transforms Independent Films into Apps



The world of film has become increasingly democratized with the advent of the Internet. People can create films and distribute them with ease. Unfortunately, posting a video to YouTube may generate hits, but it doesn’t necessarily generate bank deposits.
