I recently received the opportunity to review the RedEye remote control system. I want to say Thank You to ThinkFlood for sending me a review unit to borrow for this review. Many of you may be wondering what exactly is a RedEye? The RedEye is a system where you can turn your iPod Touch or iPhone into an infrared remote control. You can use this for media or other devices that use infrared signals. Please note for the interest of the review, I am conducting this test drive based on an average consumer.
You would think living in Maine with all the blackflies, ticks and mosquitos biting and buzzing around I'd be sick of slapping them all the time, but introduce Fly-flap (.99) and yup, I'm addicted.
The game is literally about slapping flies. The audio is kind of funny too. I like the graphics, since there's something almost surreal about their look - not lifelike but not really cartoonish either.
Well, if you listen to the actual interview you'll see that this article by CNN is a bit of an exaggeration. The prime minister of Norway was stuck in New York, thanks to the volcanic ash that has stalled air traffic. And he was using his iPad to communicate. And for those travelers who are stuck someplace, Lonely Planet is giving away its app city guides until April 22 for the following cities: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Budapest, Copenhagen, Istanbul, London, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Rome, Stockholm, and Vienna.
"..."Sindone”, the official application for the 2010 Shroud exposition, a personal guide in augmented reality, is available in the App Store. It is an interactive navigator which guides the pilgrims step by step in the visit to the Shroud and to discovering Turin, but it is also a personal agenda." Get the app at the iTunes Link above...
"Oceanhouse Media is excited to announce the release of three new Dr. Seuss iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad apps to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day on Thurs., April 22nd. Theodor Geisel cared deeply about our environment and educating children about the value of caring for Mother Earth.
Last week when I picked up the Moses tablet I also picked up Apple's iPad dock. I wanted the iPad 10W USB Power Adapter but they were out. Purchasing the dock was a total waste. I read more about the iPad dock online and found out that the dock doesn't work if you have your iPad in a case. Big FUBAR on Apple's part.
Luckily, I didn't open it and was able to instead return it and exchange it for an extra power adapter. And the iPad power adapter comes with an additional usb sync cable and includes an extra 6 feet of cord. So folks, save the $29.00 and instead spend it on the iPad 10W USB Power Adapter for work or to keep in your bag.
David Pogue writes about technology for the New York Times, and also frequently makes delightfully creative videos, too. His 5-minute video about the iPad is a lot of fun. He makes it appear that he's conducting an online, interactive "town meeting" attended by people from around the world, to whom he's demonstrating the device. Plus, if you're curious how he was able to do these special effects, see his column about that. It's a heartwarming story.
Years ago I attempted my first iPod repair armed only with a plastic ruler (to open the case without denting or scratching it). I had to replace a bad hard drive, and the warranty had expired. Luckily there were forums like the iPod Lounge to guide me, and I was successful in my endeavor to fix it (in fact it still works).
