If you have not heard of Kioky before, they are a new screen protector company that has created a revolutionary way to install screenguards. Their product not only includes the screenshield itself, but also their own applicator, which promises to make installation misalignment and stress free. You can check out their site at www.kioky.com
Kioky does need your help though.
I remember playing the Shinobi games on both my Genesis and Game Gear when I was a kid, and I remember them being tough. However, I also remember them being lots of fun. I guess I enjoyed my games being a bit punishing in those days. When I heard they were bringing a Shinobi out for the iPhone I was quite excited, though I was a bit disappointed that it was part 3 instead of Revenge Of Shinobi, which is by far my favorite. After spending some time with Shinobi III, though, I’m really enjoying it. The game play actually holds up quite well for a game that’s almost 20 years old, and I’d say this is definitely one of SEGA’s strongest emulated games to date.
Here is a neat and easy setting change that gives your regular picture frame slideshow a bit of a makeover.
Select Settings, Picture Frame, and then Transition.
It's most likely set at "Dissolve." Change that to "Origami."
The next time you select the picture frame slideshow from the lock screen, you will instantly see the Origami effect, which looks pretty neat.

The first day I was at Macworld, ZooGue was freely giving out their leather case to every media representative. I sometimes read on my iPad while I eat and have always just lain it flat on the table, thinking that a stand was unnecessary. But since I had the case, I tried it — and really liked it. I couldn't believe what a difference it made. The ZooGue case can also be used to mount your iPad on the back of a headrest. You can see a video demo on their website.
On October 31, 1941 Ansel Adams was driving along when he noticed a scene that excited him. He quickly pulled over and set up his 8x10 view camera. In his haste, he couldn't find his Weston exposure meter. He remembered what the exposure should have been for one part of the scene and came up with an exposure of 1 second at f/32 with the ASA 64 film he was using. Although he wanted to take a second image, the light changed and the scene was gone. Imagine if Mr. Adams had an iPhone on that fateful day that he took what probably is his most famous picture...Moonrise, Hernandez.
I believe in recycling and I try to recycle and/or reuse wherever and whenever possible. It's an action and responsibility to help the planet that I have control over, and to be honest, it's not all that difficult to do. Sometimes there are items that I know need to be recycled but I have no idea where to bring them to. I found a Free app that I am trying out that helps. It's called My Recycle List. It's designed for the smaller screen but I am using it on my iPad.
Basically, you choose your item that you want to recycle and it will tell you where you can bring it that is near you.
The App Store is just about ready to (metaphorically) burst under the weight of all the nearly identical puzzle games it's been constantly barraged with. As a result, it's always refreshing to see a game that offers something new and interesting to restore our faith in the genre; Burning Bubbles Lab is one such game.
Not directly iPhone/Pod/Pad related (though they will have an app coming out--currently there's a mobile page), I read a ton of eBooks, and love the fact that they are changing the publishing industry. I used to love Stephen King, but could rarely afford his newest books (being lowly enlisted in the military). If eBooks had been around then, I might've had alternatives to paying a small fortune for a good read.
Just last month, a company called iChair launched a case series they call the iChair. The iChair is a multipurpose slider case which also has some extras. They created one for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The folks at iChair sent me the iPad case to evaluate. The first thing that came to my mind when I opened the package was an Incase Slider hooked up with a silicone case. But it’s actually much more than that which I will present below.
I found a video they created in their media kit of an unboxing.
The thing that strikes me the most is how much fun this Expo is. Everyone seems thrilled. The vendors are excited and passionate about their products or services, and seemingly love every minute they spend talking about them. And the attendees seem enraptured as they listen and ask questions, every bit the equal in passion. It's a quintessential marketplace, bringing together people who share common interests. Yesterday in the short time I was at our booth, I had two different developers come up to me, eager to show me their app.
