What you're seeing in the picture to the right is lots of folks' worst nightmare: Windows XP on an iPad. The real thing and fully functional. How is this possible? With a VNC client (I use VNC Viewer). The iPad is not really running Windows XP, of course; it's just running a piece of software that lets you view, control and use Macs, Linux boxes and, yes, PCs.
I haven't yet tried this new app, but it sounds like an interesting idea — sort of like subscribing to a movie channel via your cable service, or going to a movie at a cinema. That's because instead of being the usual Internet model of movies on demand, Cinema for iPad has a schedule and streams movies at particular times. You pay $2.99 for the app, but the movies are free. The schedule changes frequently. You tune in when there's a movie playing that you'd like to see, whether a matinee or late-night show.
I had no intention of reviewing games today, but I got distracted by this one: Spazzle. I downloaded the free version - got so engrossed that I went back and bought the pay version. I LOVE THIS GAME!
It's whack-a-mole on steroids! The music is upbeat, the graphics are fantastic, and the game play is just plain fun!
The Kensington Sling Bag has plenty of neat features that make it the ultimate carry all for your iPad. Not only can you safely carry your iPad inside a foam-lined pouch, but the bag also has room inside for a wallet, notebook, cleaning cloth, earplugs, and power cords. And, on the outside, there is another zipper-close pocket for your cell phone and whatever else you can fit inside. Very handy indeed!
The definition of concise is: expressing or covering much in few words; brief in form but comprehensive in scope.
Now I've seen it all. I've been looking for a rugged iPad case that can withstand my occasional clumsiness, and give me peace of mind when I let my kids play with my iPad. But I also wanted something that felt good in my hand, with a rubberized grip. Not to be a dreamer, but an extended battery would be great, so I don't have to always plug in my iPad at night. And a built-in stand would be nice.
It’s been a least a week since I’ve mentioned it, so let me start by saying that I love shooters. Vertical, horizontal, 360 degrees – they’re all good to me as long as they are fun. That being said, I’d probably argue that vertical shooters are my favorite. As luck would have it, Icarus-X is a vertical shooter. It’s not a bad little game either. Sadly, it suffers from lack of some of the things that I really enjoy in shooters, but I’ve enjoyed it none the less. Now if I could just get past level 4…
Do you Whistle (free)? I guess I'm still a bit tongue tied with my latest VoiP app for the iPad, yes you're hearing me right a VoiP phone for the iPad (and other devices too).
The WhistlePhone Service is interesting for a number of reasons; 1) it designed an app for the iPad, 2) it utilizes an add you have to listen to before each call to make your voip call free in the US, or from anywhere else to the US.
According to PocketNow, tethering for the iPhone won't be coming anytime soon. Tethering, as you may know, lets you connect your laptop to the Internet via your cell phone's data capability. It was supposed to come not long after the iPhone 3GS was introduced, but now AT&T says that they're afraid their network wouldn't be able to handle the additional load. You can read more on PocketNow.
Don't get too excited. This is not due out until later this year. The Clamcase turns your iPad into a Netbook. The case protects your iPad and includes a Bluetooth keyboard.
