How would you like to have a new iPhone 5 without having to pay any money up front? T-Mobile is now making just such an offer.
Housed in a retro radio case with a carrying handle and two knobs on either side, the new Geneva WorldRadio DAB+ ($299 or $285 on Amazon) looks like something you would see on a beach towel in the 70s.
The WorldRadio DAB+ (Digital Audio Broadcasting) literally opens up a whole new world of sound from around the globe. But it does more than that. It’s also an FM tuner, a Bluetooth receiver, and a speaker system with a line-in from a 3.5 mm cable that will connect to almost any output device. It’s also a digital clock with an alarm and a color LCD touch screen display. All of these features make it a versatile item.
Many rumors have said the forthcoming fifth-generation iPad will have a form factor similar to the iPad mini, including narrower bezels on the left and right, such that the device can be smaller without sacrificing screen size. Think of it as an oversized iPad mini.
The New Trent Travelpak NT400C ($44.95) is both an AC charger/adapter and an external 4000 mAh battery with two USB slots. What a great idea and a handy gadget to throw in your bag while on the road.
The external battery is powerful enough to fully charge an iPhone twice, according to NT400C specs. There is a power off/on switch and an OED indicator light that signals the power level remaining in the battery.
The rumored low-cost iPhone is more tangible than ever with these high-definition renderings of the device, dubbed “iPhone lite” by the images’ anonymous sources.
The renderings corroborate many of the rumors circulating in many media sites, such as a report from the Wall Street Journal Tuesday saying the low-cost iPhone is in development, will have a 4-inch display, and a plastic shell. WSJ predicted the iPhone 5S will be released in July and the budget iPhone in the second half of the year.

An emerging class of visual search apps are showing promise in replacing traditional search methods — with camera technology that leverages the power of the web to help you identify and learn about your surroundings. The just-released iOS visual search app, CamFind (currently free) nicely marries image analysis features with language translation and voice input/output and is threatening to relegate the practice of text-entry search to the Stone Age where it belongs!
Critical Missions: SWAT ($2.99) from Critical Force Entertainment is a killer of a combat first-person shooter, especially if your thing is stalking through virtual settings (armed to the teeth) in order to blast in-game bots (or your online buddy's bots). The game physics are quite realistic, and the 3D scenes and graphics excellent. I did not go bananas over the control aspects, but after a few test runs started getting a better hang of it. Several modes of play are available: endless singular stalking/blasting or various team matches. Critical Missions: SWAT is a single bloody-minded combat game best enjoyed with a side of Foo Fighters at extremely high volume!
But can it stand up to the most excellent Trigger Fist (Free) (reviewed previously here)? Inquiring shooters want to know... Here's how the two shake out in a side-by-side comparison!
If you're anything like me, your desk is covered in stuff: pens, paperclips, business cards, CDs, receipts, a stylus or two, a mini flashlight, rubber bands, and memory cards. You get the point. And, if you're like me, your desk drawers are filled with too much stuff for you to find anything you need at the moment.
For some, the arrival of spring signifies the return of warmer weather, budding trees, and blooming flowers. For millions of others, it’s a return to hard plastic seats, overpriced concession-stand hot dogs, and the sharp crack of wood hitting leather — or, in layman’s terms, the beginning of baseball season!
