I first came in contact with OGIO gear as an off-road motorcycling enthusiast. I loved the products for their quality construction and design integrity.
OGIO’s new 2013 lineup of tech-friendly bags met all of my expectations of the company, fusing durability and water resistance with contemporary urban style. Of particular interest to any iDevice owner is the NEWT series of backpacks and messengers. OGIO designed these bags to carry the iPad, iPhone and MacBook safely, without having to tote a heavy, cumbersome pack.
U.S. Cellular announced Friday that it will start carrying the iPhone later this year. The carrier didn't say when, which models, or how much it would cost. Apple just keeps extending its reach.
In addition to the four major carriers and U.S. Cellular, the iPhone also is available from Cricket, Virgin Mobile, and WalMart's Straight Talk. It has yet to make an appearance on the prepaid carriers MetroPCS and Boost Mobile, with rumors suggesting the latter will get the iPhone later this year.
The stylish Disco Twin by Supertooth ($199) consists of two portable, rechargeable speakers driven by 16 watts of power each for a total of 32 watts RMS. Connect your Bluetooth-enabled device such as an iPod, iPad, Tablet Smartphone or MP3 player wirelessly for a stereo surround sound experience.
T-Mobile released a new video streaming iPhone app Thursday called T-Mobile TV (Free). It lets iPhone users stream from TV networks such as ESPN Mobile TV, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Nickelodeon, Discovery, Disney Channel, Animal Planet, ABC News, Bloomberg, Fox News, MTV, Spike TV, Comedy Central, E!, and VH1. It also has on-demand primetime programming from NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox. That's quite a lineup.
Although Cinco de Mayo originated in Mexico as a way to commemorate the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, the holiday has become more popular in the United States than in the country where it began. Make sure you’re fiesta-ready with these fun iPhone apps that offer everything you need to celebrate Cinco in style.
This article explains how you can output still images to your external display (TV, projector etc.) from your iDevice and what you should do to maximize quality. While some of the material requires advanced knowledge (including having read my previous multimedia-specific articles), the “All in All” section at the bottom is digestable for beginners (at least I hope it is).
Apple's stock image slideshow implementation output is, unfortunately, half-hearted. (iDevices utilize the native TV output while playing slideshows. Apart from Retina iPads, it is the only way of making full use of the more advanced output types, namely, HDMI and VGA.)
It’s called the Citta Slide In Case. In order to add beauty and protection to your iPhone 5, all you need to do is slide the phone into the case sideways.
Once again, Apple is counting down to an app-download milestone. This time we're approaching the 50 billionth app download. And as before, should you happen to download the 50 billionth app, you'll receive an App Store Gift Card worth $10,000. The App Store home page has a countdown ticker so you can track how close we are to that milestone. In addition to the top prize, the next 50 people to download an app after the 50 billionth will receive a $500 App Store Gift Card.
Apple has gone through a number of ups and downs during the last three decades. The company has invented the most inspiring products, and it has launched quite a few products doomed to fail right from the start. But the success of the iPhone and iPad catapulted Apple to number one in the tech market. Steve Jobs' unique style of leadership and showmanship was the foundation on which the edifice of Apple's success rested.
But after Jobs' left the company, signs of decay began to appear: this is not to say Apple is not creating good products. The company is easily the best when it comes to creating premium smartphones and tablets.
Apple is focusing its attention on integrating the iPhone with automobiles, according to a recent blog post on 9To5Mac. The article said we might see something yet this year.
It makes sense. iPhones are incredibly powerful and intelligent devices, so why not develop a system where iPhone content is displayed on say, a car mirror, or perhaps receives a video-out signal? 9To5Mac says Apple is working on a system whereby Apple Maps would appear on the car's display (instead of the sort of proprietary GPS systems currently found in cars).
