How To Be a Cool Grandparent

Step 1: Purchase an iPad

Step 2: Install all your “bragging” photos on the device

Step 3: Install the Jack and the Beanstalk app

By taking these three steps, your friends will be seriously envious of your “Bragging Album;” your kids will be overjoyed at how well you “babysit;” and your grandchildren will think you’re the coolest Granny or Grandpa on earth. Jack and the Beanstalk almost makes me ready for Granny-hood!



Speaking of Flash on Apple Devices, Hulu May Be Coming to the iPad (w00t!!!)

I was over on Wired's Gadget Lab blog when I noticed this little gem of information which they got from the LA Times

The rumors have been flying about a Hulu app on the iPad. Hulu is the number one reason that geeks complain about the lack of Flash support on Apple’s mobile devices, so if Hulu were to bring a native application to the TV-friendly iPad, it would be huge. And it might be happening soon.

The ManHandle: A He-Man's alternative to the Man Purse, for your iPad!

image

I am always on the lookout for the perfect case, and the iPad presents a particular challenge.  I want something that can protect the iPad, while it is in use, so a slipcase doesn't cut it for me.  I also want to be able to grip my iPad with a handle.  And I would prefer to not carry a "Man Purse".  Yes, I'm superficial.

With that in mind, and nothing on the market that seemed to meet my needs, I went ahead and created just such a tool.  I call it the "ManHandle".  It is created completely with parts you could get at a hardware store.  It looks tough, because it is.  And it only cost me around $20.

Review: ThinkFlood RedEye

image

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.


The flies have it

image

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.
