Make your iPad comfortable, with ePillow.net

I must admit I was skeptical of the ePillow, when I first saw it. After all, the Internet is full of wannabe vendors, who take everyday items, add an i or e prefix, and charge twice the price, hoping to capitalize on the iPad frenzy.





Visualize your App Sales with AppViz from IdeaSwarm

image

If you're an app developer, as I am, once you start to get a decent amount of sales, you start looking for a way to track those sales so you can do some analysis.  For a long time, I tried various web services.  They had a nice advantage as they automatically downloaded your sales reports and created charts, without your having to do anything.  But if you have a lot of apps, as I do, web services can be expensive, as they typically charge per month and per app... even for free ones.  So a friend told me about AppViz from IdeaSwarm, and I've been using it every day for a couple of years now.



iDapt lets you adapt to new gadgets!

Improvise, adapt, overcome. A good motto for Marines, and for iPhone accessories! iDapt offers a novel approach to charging your iPhone and other accessories. Face it, most of us have either multiple phones (iPhone or otherwise) or multiple devices to charge such as a Bluetooth earpiece.



Zerochroma... My new favorite case?

image
I get to use a lot of different cases, so the fact that I've settled on one, for both my iPad 2 and iPhone 4S is pretty significant. The Zerochroma cases have some nice features that really meet my needs. For starters, they have a nice texture that has just the right balance of smoothness and grip. But the real differentiator is the built in swivel stand that adjusts to just about every position you could want, making them great for airplane meal trays, office desks, nightstands, etc. and they are available in black or white, for iPhone and iPad.



Get IN TIME: The Game, FREE, based on Justin Timberlake's new movie

image

Okay, I'm a sucker for Logan's Run, both the classic Sci Fi movie, and videogames inspired by the genre.  So I am looking forward to Justin Timberlake's new flick, In Time, where time is a commodity and people live a short life and he finds a way to beat the system.  I'll probably see the movie this weekend, but fortunately, I've been preparing by playing the IN TIME - The Game app, both on my iPad and iPhone.  And now you can get the app FOR FREE!



Go ahead and brag, with Braggables.com

image

Go ahead and brag.  Whether it's because your kid is an honor student or your niece is adorable, or just because you have an iPad or iPhone.  Or maybe it's all of the above?!  If so, you are in luck because the nice folks at Braggables.com have a line of iOS accessories (named iBrag of course) that let you carry your gadgets in style and brag about your loved ones at the same time! Their items are available in a 'wet crocodile' style that many women pay a lot more for at stores like Brighton, but to be honest, as a man, I like it too, at least in black!



Siri is great... but this ain't Siri!

image

Siri is great and for me, it was worth upgrading from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 4S to get it.  But don't be fooled by imposters.

For example, there's an app named "SIRI" that has NOTHING TO DO WITH VOICE CONTROL.  Somehow, the app was approved, on October 13th, and is doing very well in the U.S. app store, despite the fact that the description and app aren't even in English!  Indeed maybe that's the trick.  People can't tell what the app does, so they get it and end up disappointed.  I won't link to the app, because it doesn't need the extra accidental sales, but here are some screenshots that give you an idea of what the app does and how customers have duped themselves.



Protect that new iPhone 4S with a case folks will go Gaga over!

image

There are a lot of case makers out there, but there's only one Lady Gaga.  And LuxMobile has licensed her images and designs for their line of cases.  No strangers to luxury licensing, LuxMobile also offers cases with Ed Hardy and other trendy designs.  Since I gifted my iPhone 4 to my wife, in anticipation of my upgrade to the iPhone 4S, I had to find a more feminine-friendly case for her, and the Lady Gaga collection presented several options.  My wife went with the more understated 'diamond pattern' Romance style, but true Gaga fans may want something more outlandish.  No 'meat' cases currently, but you never know.



I ordered the iPhone 4S, and here's why

I was on the fence, but today I went to Best Buy and pre-ordered the iPhone 4S.  Here's why.



Me and Steve Jobs

image

With the passing of my personal hero Steve Jobs, I have to take a moment to reflect upon how I got here and the role Apple and Steve Jobs played in my life.  As Yogi Berra said, when you see a fork in the road, TAKE IT!  There are many twists and turns that led each of us to the path we are on today so indulge me as I reflect on my path.  ONE MORE THING... Sign your organ donor card.  We had a few extra years of Steve Jobs thanks to the selflessness of a 20 year old.
