I’ve tried a lot of screen protectors at this point. I have discovered that finding a screen protector that protects your iPhone is the easy part. It’s finding one that’s easy to install and doesn’t leave weird bubbles of trapped air between the protector and your phone's surface that can be challenging. Kyasi sent me its 3D Gladiator Glass Screen Protector ($69.95) to test. Here's my hands on experience with the new glass screen.

Released just hours before Obama's inauguration, Ustream is an application for viewing live and recorded video, as well as offering interactive chat functionality. (Within hours it had been downloaded nearly 300 times.) Unfortunately, it requires a Wi-Fi connection. All of the content is hosted on Ustream's web site, and the app requires that you set up a login.

AllTechRelated has a great list of free TV show-streaming web sites for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It's amazing what's available. I hope I'm not pointing you to something illegal, though some of the sites are obviously legitimate, such as the offerings from NBC and ESPN.
Update: this web page lists 3 Click, but as of a few days ago, the back door that someone had discovered to access the site for free was closed. Just as well, since I don't want to point you to anything that's not legal.

Why a Windows 7 article in a blog dedicated to mobile devices? you may ask. Because I also elaborate on strictly mobility-related questions (including synchronizing iPhones to W7) as well - something you'll unlikely find in any other Windows 7 article. Please head over to the Smartphone & Pocket PC Mag blog for the article.

iSmashPhone has a list of 12 iPhone tricks that I think is quite useful. You may already know some of these, but the reason I like this list is that these are tricks that most everyone should know because they make little things on the iPhone easier or more efficient. For example, if you press and hold the .com button, you'll get the option of selecting one of the other common domain suffixes: .edu, .net, or .org.

I hate to spread rumors .... but this one's good. Maybe too good to be true. I like the idea of tethering — connecting your laptop to the Internet via your phone's data capability when there's no Wi-Fi or other connection available. It's been rumored for some time now that AT&T and Apple are planning to make this available for an additional monthly charge of $30. Ouch.

The good news is that iRinger is free and that it lets you create iPhone ringtones from almost any source. You can even extract audio ringtones from videos. The bad news: the app is only available for the Windows OS. (There's a certain amount of irony there.) Once you've created your ringtones, then the application exports them to iTunes. You can Adjust ringtone length, volume, fade in, fade out, and loop gap, as well as add audio effects.

Wi-Fi Finder, which was released last month, is an app that lets you easily find wireless hotspots — both free and paid. It taps into a registry of 200,000 verified hotspot locations in 135 countries. You simply click "Near Me," and Wi-Fi Finder uses the built-in GPS on the iPhone or the iPod Touch's triangulation capability to find hotspots near you.

A few years ago, I spent a year touring the continent on a bicycle, by myself. As you might imagine, I spent many hours listening to the radio. Bringing my music collection along was out of the question for space reasons -- the iPod and other MP3 players were still relatively new and expensive, so I hadn't bought one before the trip. Satellite radio, same deal. So when road noise threatened to drive me bonkers, I turned to the FM band. And you know, there's just not

Apple announced today that nearly all of the music sold on iTunes will be 100% DRM free. DRM, or Digital Rights Management, has been the bane of the music downloading world since its inception. DRM is a security method to prevent people from copying and distributing music illegally which sounds good on the surface but because of the complexity of our changing lives and music playing products only proved to hamper and anger consumers.

Sling Media has a really cool product that's long been available for other devices. It allows you to watch all of the content on your TV on your device — live. You connect their Slingbox (which costs anywhere from $180-300) to your TV inputs (such as cable or satellite) and to your Internet connection. Then with Sling Media software on your device, you're able to access your TV channels on your iPhone wherever you are.
