iGrill: Grilling the Perfect Steak and the Internet of Things

image

I love my iGrill from iDevices ($79.95). I have owned many a meat thermometer over the years, only to be disappointed by undercooked steaks, melted plastic bezels, and holding devices a little to close to the heat. iGrill appears to be accurate. Even better, it talks to my iPad so I don’t have to sit and watch the steak cook. To quote a tutorial on steak cooking, “the only reason to flip a steak is to cook the other side.” Many BBQ aficionados spend too much time with their meat. They poke and prod, flip and rearrange because watching a steak cook is like watching the proverbial grass grow. Since you want the perfect steak, you pay a little too much attention to it. While people are putting out paper plates, popping the tab on another beer, or cheering a great block shot in croquet, you are left watching your meat cook.



I Never Thought I'd Want an iWatch, Until I Saw This!

I've heard all of the propaganda, and seen all of the concept mockups, but I just haven't been able to wrap my mind around an iWatch. I mean, I don't even wear a regular wristwatch. Granted, back in the day I loved my calculator/Pac-Man watch (which was the pinnacle of high-tech back in Fort Collins, Colorado in the early '80s), and later my Casio G-Shock, but it's been almost a decade since I've worn a wrist watch with any regularity. Not since the invasion of smartphones have I made it a point to wear a wrist timepiece.

So when rumors of an Apple iWatch (or whatever it will eventually be called) started to circulate I was not overly enthused, and thus far, I have barely felt compelled to weigh in on the subject. Until now that is...



Adventure-Proof Your iPhone with Otterbox's New Waterproof, Shockproof Preserver Series

image

If you haven't already heard, earlier this year one of the world’s leading case manufacturers, Otterbox, bought out their friendly rival in the case development and production business, Lifeproof. Ever since Otterbox made this acquisition I've been eagerly awaiting the release of the first hybrid Otterbox/Lifeproof case. Well, my wait is finally over, as Otterbox has just unveiled the Preserver iPhone case for the iPhones 5/5S/5C ($89.95). With the introduction of the Preserver, Otterbox has in my opinion, created one of the best protective iPhone cases in the ever more crowded field of waterproof and rugged protection cases. If you liked the Otterbox Armor and the Lifeproof frē, or if you are in search of one of the most reliable heavy-duty iPhone cases on the market, you will simply love the new Otterbox Preserver. Read on for all the details of this stellar new protective iPhone case....

Stop Motion- Animation Maker Pro: Creating Your Own Cinema

image

EDUMOTION's Stop Motion- Animation Pro is a remarkably easy-to-use application that puts the power of stop-motion filming in its users’ hands. With Stop Motion Animation Pro, no special equipment is necessary to create your very own stop-motion film. Stop- motion film is created by playing many still frames in quick succession, in which a scene has been subtly adjusted for each frame.  This creates the illusion of smooth motion when using a series of inanimate scenes.
