For awhile now I’ve been using a small device which pays big dividends to iPhone 2G and 3G users who need a stable platform either for photography or videography.
Even though you have Voice Memo on your iPhone you might also be interested in the free Pocket Dictate, which lets you make recordings and then tap the send button to e-mail it to your typist from within the app. You can also send it via ftp. The app automatically compresses the WAV file. There are other useful controls, too, including the ability to overwrite and insert. A voice activation feature lets you set it so that it only records when you're speaking. And while it's designed to emulate — and replace — a dictaphone, obviously it could be used for other purposes, such as interviews.
No matter what device I have ever owned, I have always had the hankering to get cases for it. They add extra protection and can be very stylish. When I think about it, I think it’s an addiction I have, because I am always looking for the perfect case. When I think I have found one, something comes along and catches my eye and it begins all over again; How much is it? What are the reviews? and Where can I find it cheaper? When the iPod came along in my life, it got worst, as pretty much every store you go in these days have iPod accessories. These businesses are fueling my addiction. I have been happy with the incase slider I had purchased a couple months ago. Then I spotted the Otterbox Defender series case before Christmas. So when my family asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I said I have the perfect idea. I actually provided them the online shopping link and found a really great price for them. I thought this is awesome, a new case coming my way and it’s saving me some money for a future case that comes out (see it’s an addiction.) On Christmas Eve, I received the case and put my baby in the Otterbox that evening. I still have the case on it. Solid feel constructed of both plastic and a silicone outer shell with a built in screen protector. (The only drawback is that you have to remove the entire case to use it with the Apple Universal Dock, but I can live with that). My wife calls me a geek when I see a case I want, at which point I ask her what purse she is using today. That gets her to stop. Last week, I went to the Otterbox site and purchased my son a version of it for his Nano. I then saw that Otterbox discontinued the iPod touch (and others) and it only focusing on Smartphones going forward. Who knows what the next great case I find will be. So this brings me to a question for all of you. If you use a case on your device (no matter what device), what do you use and why do you like it?
The Associated Press reports that at least twice now, a glitch at AT&T has sent the wrong Web "cookies" to customers' phones, allowing them to access other customers' data on unencrypted sites such as Facebook, and to unintentionally send mail from the other customers' email accounts: http://apnews.myway.com//article/20100116/D9D8O2L00.html
The story predicts that encrypted sites such as banks and e-commerce sites are probably not affected by the glitch, since it's unlikely that the the private key would be sent to the wrong device. As a Web developer myself, this story helps to underscore for me the importance of putting any confidential data on an encrypted site!
Hello, this is my first blog post here and I wanted to introduce myself. You can also find a little more specifics about me in my bio link. I have been a windows mobile user since 2001 with the HP Jornada pocket pc. After that I used the Dell Axim X5 series and the Ipaq 210 as of last year. Frankly, I just got tired of the same old windows mobile experience and I wanted to get rid of that dang stylus. I decided to get the iPod Touch last fall after doing some research on it to make sure it could do what my PDA could do. You see, I bought it for the purpose of the apps. The music and movies were just an excellent bonus for me.
Accessibility enables the visually impaired (or those who can’t find their reading classes or can't focus due to painkillers) to "read" their iphone. (Settings-General-Accessibility). VoiceOver is tricky to use at first, but it will read your iPhone to you – each icon, text, email, etc.
This feature is also helpful to use your iPhone in your pocket - with earbuds in – if pulling the iPhone out is inappropriate.
SPB Software, one of my fav Windows Phone software developers, has ported their Quads game to the iPhone. I'll be working up a review probably, and maybe a giveaway. If you want to check it out, go over to their site here for a look. Quads is currently just $0.99 cents in the App Store!
You’re limited only by imagination on ways to use the AppStand with your iPhone. For example, I use it on my desk to show off my Reef3D aquarium app – love this! I use it with an alarm clock app to keep me on time for my appointments. I use it with my calculator app to add numbers. I use it with my dictionary app or with Safari to do research while writing. And if I want to be entertained while cooking dinner, it's a great TV stand for watching videos on my iPhone. I’m sure you will think of many, many more ways to use this handy device.

Anyone know of a post-op app? The track medication, change dressings, etc? I'm using illnessTracker - but it's not perfect for after surgery. ~T. Posted from BlogPress - Please excuse the formatting.
