Quicklook: Time to Check Out Emerald Chonometer

image

I have always loved fancy watches like Rolex and Omega.  I can remember days of walking through the mall just staring at the watch display in the jewelry store (back when I actually got to visit my own stores).  The problem was, while it was always free to look, taking home one of those fancy watches always cost thousands of dollars.  And I have never found myself at a point where that would make sense.  Maybe someday.  But in the meantime, my lust for watches can now be fed, through the magic of the iPhone and Emerald Chronometer.

A Musician's Best Friend

More than just for playing tunes

I’m not only a musician and teacher; I’ve been a PDA enthusiast for many years. It all started in the mid 90s, when I got my first handheld, Apple’s short-lived Newton. I moved on to the Palm Pilot and a great piece of software called ittyMIDI, which allowed me to play back MIDI files, change tempo, set volume levels, and mute individual tracks. When my Palm Pilot died, I moved on to a Windows Mobile Pocket PC, which had more multimedia capabilities and a variety of third-party programs that turned the Pocket PC into a musician’s helper.

Use iPhone as a remote for Boxee

image

I love Boxee. It aggregates streaming movies, TV, and other videos from around the Internet into one simple interface on your desktop computer that you navigate with your remote. It's been my replacement for cable TV. It was initially available only on the Mac, but I believe a Windows version is now available. So today's news is that now, via the free Boxee Remote app, you can use your iPhone as a remote with Boxee rather than the bare-bones remote that comes with the Mac.
