Well, I have had some time to try out this new RedEye Mini. What’s different about this than their original? A lot. The original was more of a base station unit that was tied to one room. This new Mini is all about Portability and multi iDevice usage. You can keep it at home, or you can bring it on the go. You can use it in an iPad, an iPhone, or an iPod Touch. There are no restrictions, and as you can see from the pictures, it comes with a handy keychain case. Plus, this unit is more affordable and I think this added with the fact it is portable, makes it a better value.
In an article in the upcoming issue of iPhone Life magazine, the author discusses the decision developers have to make as to whether their app should be native to the iPhone or Web-based. It seems there are definite advantages to having a Web app since it becomes global rather than specific to a platform. Well, it seems YouTube has made the decision to go global.

Thanks to the size and resolution of the iPad, graphic artists finally have a device that is both easy to use and extremely versatile when it comes to creative visual expression. Since the iPad's launch, several drawing applications have been released but few of them have the ease of use and intuitive, non-obtrusive user interface that Autodesk's Sketchbook Pro has to offer.
I’m not an artist (as you can see), but with Drawing Pad, I can have hours of fun pretending I am one.
JBL released their On Stage Micro II last week. This is one of their portable speaker docks, which works with the iPhone, iPods, as well as some other devices. They were kind enough to send me a loaner unit (Thank You), which I have been using for a few weeks.

I've just been watching the demo videos of the newly released version of HoloToy and I couldn't resist buying it. The 3-D effects look great on an iPad. The app is a work in progress but definitely has a wow factor. People are always wanting to see my iPad so it's fun having a few apps that show it off.
Some time ago I posted about an iPhone app that can actually blow out a candle. And now the same developer has come out with Magic Mover ($0.99), which pushes things.
I expect innovation, not regurgitation from Google. While enthusiastic about Google's deal with AdMob finally going through, I'm less than impressed with their new proclamation of partnering with Sony for a Google web TV. Don't get me wrong, I love Google and Sony, but talk about being late to the party.
Why am I annoyed? Aside from Google wanting to do things other than what they're really, really good at?
