The best iCade / iControlPad games Part I

image
I've always liked ­playing on my mobile devices, even back in the Pocket PC / Windows Mobile / Palm OS days. They revitalize me quite a lot, particularly after a hard, exhausting day.

Playing without physical controls (buttons), only using the touchscreen, is pretty hard. This includes a lot of game types, particularly ones where quick direction changes are needed and / or you can't make the smallest mistake and must be absolutely sure even the smallest movements on the directional pads (D-pad for short) is registered. In games like these, physical D-pad / button feedback is of extreme importance.


Tom Bihn Synapse: Review

image

 

The Tom Bihn Synapse backpack is one of the best backpacks I have had the privilege of using. It's about 70% the size of a regular size full-sized backpack. However, it does offer a large main compartment for carrying a laptop or your iPad. Sometimes, size doesn’t really matter.  The main compartment is divided into two compartments making it easier to find items inside. The Synapse also offers five outside, zippered pockets. The inside of the backpack is made of a stain resistance type material. The inside compartment is a yellowish color making it easier to see objects inside the backpack.



Make your iPad comfortable, with ePillow.net

I must admit I was skeptical of the ePillow, when I first saw it. After all, the Internet is full of wannabe vendors, who take everyday items, add an i or e prefix, and charge twice the price, hoping to capitalize on the iPad frenzy.

Otterbox Defender iPhone 4S: Review

image

 

The most important decision after purchasing an iPhone, can be deciding which case to purchase for the best protection. I have had the privilege of using many different types of cases.  If I had to choose only one case from the many I have used it would be the OtterBox Defender. The OtterBox Defender does add a little extra weight to the device. It's not very noticeable after you begin using the case. It does make the iphone a little bit thicker. I know many people are very proud of how thin and sleek the iPhone 4S is. However, I think protection has to be top priority.



The Battle of the Cases: Defender versus Ballistic

There are two cases that protect your iPhone from just about anything: The Ballistic Hard Core and the Otterbox Defender.  So which to buy?

J-Phonics Ear Monitors: Review

image

 

  I enjoy listening to many different types of music. I think with merging all the different types of mobile platforms it help bring music to everyone. We can listen to music almost anywhere at any time we choose.  Our music is usually no more than an arm length away.   Regardless, of the type of music you like, it must sound good to you personally for you to enjoy it.

Stabile Pro Pivoting iPad Stand: Review

image

 

The Stabile Pro is one of my favorite stands on the market.  The Stabile Pro stand is twice the weight of the iPad at 4 lbs.  The extra weight provides the adequate needed balance to secure the stand.  One of the greatest features of this stand is it’s built in the U.S.A from solid steel.  It has a pivoting head for viewing in either landscape or portrait view.  It has a slit cut in the back for cable positioning.  The stand brackets that hold the iPad secure are covered by protective rubberized tips.
