With all the chatter in the blogosphere, about new products
soon to be released, and patent battles
being fought on all fronts in the courts of law, I think it's important to keep in mind the old expression: "You ain't seen nuthin' yet!" Truly, hasn't this week been a great example of that.
With the court cases bringing out details Apple would just as likely have preferred to keep private, we have been granted a rare insight into the evolution of products in the Apple iDevice chain, as well as having been given glimpses into what Apple had in mind, in prototype form
, two years ago.
That said, can you imagine what Cupertino has in store for us in say, 5 years? That's not that long. Think about it. Within 5 years, devices and functions that are now, only in prototype/patent form, may very well be seeing the light of day. It's not for nothing that Johny Ive
says that the products Apple is working on now, are some of the best, most exciting products Apple has ever invented!
Was able to check out 3 new handy utilities this week, and the new so-called Chrome for iOS browser, which is the Safari engine in a Chrome-like wrapper with a few added features that help if you are already drinking the Goog kool-aid. I have come to rely heavily on Safari, and IMO, Chrome mobile did not impress at all. About the only thing I liked was being able to get to my bookmarks, but it performed too chaotically to be useful. Also in this post, I cover some handy lightweight remote control apps (PC HUD and OFF) that let you monitor, stop or restart a PC or Mac from your iDevice, and a really decent calc/notepad app (CalcTape) for running accounting tallies and similar number-crunching tasks. As a bonus, I'll round up 3 of my fav free utilities at the end! Perfect end to a review roundup...
Hello there fellow travelers and adventurers! Welcome to my Special Summer Travel Series here at iPhone Life. Each week we’ve been taking a in-depth look at a wide variety of different apps, accessories and gear that make summer travel with our iDevices easier, more convenient, safer and more enjoyable.
This week we are featuring a product by the Lifeproof Company, makers of the best waterproof and rugged protection cases on the market. The LifeJacket by Lifeproof is a great invention that turns your already sturdy and dependable Lifeproof case into a floating, completely submersible, tractioned, highly shockproof (drop it from a 50 foot building and watch nothing happen) portable media and computing station.
