Use the iPhone to Help Your Doctor Diagnose

My aunt is a Pediatrician.  She says when parents bring their sick children into the office - they can either exaggerate, downplay or accurately describe symptoms. What does "Loud" or "Big" really mean?

When my daughter was snoring at night, to me it was loud, really loud.  She would also gag and stop breathing for a couple seconds and her tonsils were HUGE

The iPad: Good enough to displace assorted single-purpose gadgets

I never liked being called "Jack of all trades" because the assumption that follows is "Master of none."  In reality, I consider myself to be a Renaissance man, capable of performing well in multiple fields, such as programming, marketing, design, teaching, and writing.  This has served me well as an entrepreneur.  The iPad is in a similar position.  The iPad may not be the best eBook reader because it doesn't use e-Ink which aids screen legibility and battery life, but it's pretty darn good.  The iPad may not accept DVDs or SD cards, which my current portable video player does, but it's pretty darn good.  The iPad might not be the best video game platform because it lacks physical buttons, but it's pretty darn good.



iVideochat: The missing link for the iPad & iPhone

While I will definitely be buying an iPad on Day 1, I am on record as being disappointed there is no built-in camera, let alone two.  Cameras are included in just about every cellphone and even the lowly iPod nano and Nintendo DSi.  Imagine the gaming, Augmented Reality, and videoconferencing capabilities this feature would have enabled.  Instead of the mixed reaction the iPad has garnered, the appeal of the iPad would have been a no-brainer, just by including a camera.  I have to believe a future iPad will have at least one camera.  But for now, I Photoshopped the following creation in the hopes it might inspire a vendor to create such a hardware and software combination.

Some of the most interesting items at CES don't use electricity.  We found several accessories that enhance the electronic lifestyle, while made entirely out of non-technical materials.



CES: Vusix Video Eyewear

image

I have always wanted a pair of these Vusix Vid-ware thingamabobs, and then I always talk myself out of splurging on what I consider a frivolous item. Then I tried some similar models before X-Mas at Brookstone and wasn't all that impressed, but today I might finally be convinced to get me some. I was able to try out their latest models (Wrap 920), with a 67" (at 10 feet), clear display...even in 3-D! It was really pretty amazing, and darnnit, I now again have the Vusix bug. Of course they work with my iPod touch (or an iPhone), so now what excuse am I going to use not to get some, huh?
