Snowball Mic by Blue Mic

image

Many users who buy the ipad today purchase it not just for fun but use productively.   It can be used for an infinite number of tasks.  Just to name a few the iPad 2 is a work horse of a word processor and much more.  It also offers applications to record audio and video.  This is a great way to capture many memories or create your own soundtracks.  Like I said before the list is never ending.  The iPad 2 grouped with the appropriate app and hardware can produce professional sounding audio tracks for things like podcasts.  The video recordings aren't  all that great with only a 2 meg camera on



Bring the arcade home with iCADE from ThinkGeek!

image
I've been having a ball with the iCADE, $100 from ThinkGeek.com though I've also seen it at Toys R Us and Best Buy. Originally conceived as an April Fools Day joke, the idea was so attractive that they had it built as a real product... something that happens with remarkable frequency!

Daedalus Touch App Review

image

There are many journal and note taking apps that are available; but Daedalus Touch definitely takes the demand for better features to a different level.  Luckily, the very first thing that is requested after downloading is an important tutorial.  It is recommended to thoroughly read and follow the tutorial because without it; you will not be aware of all the unique features that are offered.  The tutorial itself is very user friendly and clearly shows the use and purpose of the app.  With each page that is read; this system will ask for you to physically demonstrate the information being taught to insure that you are able to comply.  It’s a fail proof way to making anyone who buys the app capable of using it.

Will Apple announce two iPhones?

image

We've repeated several rumors that Apple will be announcing two iPhones -- contributing to the nearly impossible expectations. I don't envy Tim Cook, who will be facing such high expectations in his very first product introduction as CEO. Now a recent post on AppleInsider is quoting market analysts are are saying that it's likely that only one phone will be introduced. 



iPhone 5 cases show up at an AT&T store

image

There's a whole lotta confusion among the various rumors, and adding to the mix is the appearance of iPhone 5 cases in AT&T stores. The cases suggest that the new iPhone will be thinner with tapered edges. You can read more and see photos on the cases in a post on MacRumors. The post still holds out the possibility, though, that Apple may not introduce a redesigned iPhone -- that other evidence is suggesting an iPhone 4S instead. It won't be long until the mystery is solved.

iNibby Nibble App Review

image

 

This is a remake of a classic Amiga game called Nibby Nibble. The visuals in iNibby Nibble are more refined than the classic version as there are more curved surfaces rather than levels made up of square grids (for the outer walls). The level backgrounds in iNibby Nibble don't really move and seem pre-rendered.

iPhone 5 invitation hints at speech recognition in iOS 5

image

Apple's invitation for the October 4 event announcing the new iPhone said, "Let's talk iPhone." In the past, the wording of the invitation was a clue to the major theme. So speculation is mounting that this is referring to the deep integration of speech recognition long rumored to be part of iOS 5. Last year Apple bought Siri, a leader in natural language understanding on the iPhone with their free Siri Assitant app. And Apple is rumored to be partnering with Nuance, the developer of a leading line of speech recognition products.
