Whether you’re looking for an app to help your pigtailed kindergartener master her first lessons, or you’re a grad student frantically sucking down coffee and pulling all nighters working on your thesis, there are some great iPhone apps that can help you accomplish your educational goals; whatever they may be. I took these few for a test drive for you and found them to be every bit as fun as they are educational. In fact, kids will have so much fun using these apps, they won’t even notice they’re doing something educational—what could be better than that?

I really enjoy Boxee's free streaming video service. I have a laptop connected to my HDTV and pretty much exclusively watch streaming video from Boxee: The Daily Show, CNET videos, TV shows, movies. There's a lot of free content, as well as on-demand HD movies from Vudu. And Boxee apps give you access to even more content. Plus, it works with the remote that came with my Mac. Now there's Boxee for iPad (free). It gives you access to featured videos and to any videos that you've saved for later in your regular Boxee account.

Drop Cop : Aqua City Cleanup Mission!

Drop Cop : Aqua City Cleanup Mission!

Disclaimer: All the characters in the story are fictional; any resemblance to real world characters is just a coincidence.

Aqua City has seen its worst. Is it sure not the city that we grew up with.. flowing streams of clear blue water, fountains of golden drops and unlimited supply of chocolate milk drops. The peace and tranquility of the city has been replaced with flood and delude of tear drops.  Blue and Golden drops have been replaced with bomb drops, creating chaos and urgency in everything we do. With the ever increasing flood of crime, people are afraid to trickle out and hence getting bored at home without any fun.

Griffin Beacon Review

Being the home automation enthusiast and restless technologist that I am, I built my own universal remote control months ago using an Arduino, an IR LED and a Ruby on Rails application running on my computer. My app works great over WiFi and I can even turn on and off these devices when I'm off-site. I even pre-programmed cascading functions so that when I press the "All Off" button on my app, my TV, stereo and video game console also turn off.
