Sprint LivePro Offers a Portable Projector, Power, Internet and more

image

I have to applaud Sprint for trying to deliver a multipurpose gadget that offers quite a lot in a compact 4.7" x 4.7" x 1.1" package. The Sprint LivePro is first and foremost a mini projector, useful for delivering presentations on the fly. Of course, since it comes from Sprint, you might expect it to offer something related to Internet connectivity, and indeed it does. The LivePro also acts as a password-protected Wi-Fi 3G and 4G LTE HotSpot, letting you go online with a non-cellular iPad for example. It supports up to eight Wi-Fi connected devices simultaneously.

Apple News: Bigger Cases for Bigger iPhones

image

Apple had so much to talk about on Tuesday that some new products didn't get mentioned. Apple first introduced bumpers with the iPhone 4, in part to help with the AntennaGate problem. Later, the iPhone 5c got a bunch of brightly colored cases. Now, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus customers can choose official silicone or leather cases from Apple. The cases also come in assorted colors, but they are more muted choices. There's a (PRODUCT)RED option with proceeds going to fight Aids in Africa. Silicone cases cost $35 for the iPhone 6 and $39 for the iPhone 6 Plus. For leather, expect to spend $45 or $49, respectively.



More Apple Watch Details Emerge

image

It will be fun to see how the Apple Watch is received next year. Some reviews have been a bit negative, but I continue to be wowed by the many cool and innovative features. I've never liked wearing watches, so I doubt I'd ever get one, yet I'm excited by what Apple has done. It does seem like a very narrow market, though, since the Apple Watch only works in conjunction with an iPhone. In addition, most young people today don't wear watches. Details about the watch beyond what Apple said on Tuesday are emerging, as journalists write about their experience with the device and glean info from Apple employees. TUAW has helpfully assembled some of these details. The most interesting is how Apple ensures Apple Pay security when the device isn't on your wrist.

Tablift is a Twisty Tool that gives Tablets a Lift

When Steve Jobs introduced the iPad, he ushered in the Post-PC era. At the time, I remember thinking how we would no longer need a whole slew of accessories like laptop "pillow desks," monitor stands, keyboard drawers, mouse pads, or mice for that matter! For the most part, that prediction has come true. Many "must-have" accessories focused on desktop computing seem quaint now. Reading e-books in bed is great, but as great and light as the iPad is, it can be cumbersome to hold one for an extended amount of time.
