Change the audiobook playback speed


You can listen to audiobooks on the iPhone or iPod touch using the built-in audio/music player.

To do this on the iPhone, go to the Home screen and tap on Settings >iPod >Audiobook Speed. On the iPod touch, go to Settings >Music >Audiobook Speed. Then select Slower, Faster, or Normal.

Great game Sentinel 2, finally, out! + Strategy Guide

Probably the best Tower Defense game out there is Sentinel by Origin8, which is offered for $1 only and is an excellent buy. (See my Strategy Guide HERE.)

Bring the Power of the iPhone browser to Your PC!


We all love the iPhone’s pinch-capable browsing and slick gesture-based navigation. It’s clean animated experience is a wonder to behold, and not uncommon to it’s big brother, the iMac.
