Obstetrician Answers Question Asked by All Expectant Parents

Obstetrician Answers Question Asked by All Expectant Parents

Pasadena, California - Expectant couples want to know, “when will my baby actually be born?”. The Baby Birthday app, developed by obstetrician Toni Morrissey, MD, is finally answering this question.

Dr. Morrissey notes, “Babies rarely are born on their actual due date. Many factors determine when you will deliver, including when you go into labor, when your water breaks, or when you might need to be delivered for some other reason to reduce the risk of complications.”

Baby Birthday for the iPhone predicts the baby's actual delivery date based on the mother's medical history, surgical history, examination, and even the small effect of large changes in the barometric pressure.

iView: My iPhone Stops Working at CES

To the Rescue: Blood Pressure Monitoring and Full Body Massage!

Apple did not exhibit at the 2011 Computer Electronics Show (CES), which featured booths from Microsoft, HTC, Samsung, HP, and other giants. However, Apple was transcendent and omnipresent—the 600 pound gorilla that pervaded the show. Attendees could find iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch cases, speakers, docks, headsets, and other imaginative and innovative accessories everywhere on the gigantic CES show floor. Further, the first day of the show, The Wall Street Journal published the report that Verizon would definitely announce its iPhone a couple of days after the show ended.

Amazing Camera Apps

Add barcode readers, augmented reality, fax, language translation, heart rate monitor, and more to your iPhone or 4th gen iPod touch

The range of creative and practical apps that use the camera in unusual ways is astonishing. Who would have thought that you could use it as a heart rate monitor or a business card reader? There's even an app for those who are colorblind, to show them the colors present in any object you photograph.

Apple made a brilliant decision when it let developers create apps that access the camera input and use it in non-traditional ways. In this month's column, I offer a roundup of some of these apps.
