TryGuessThis for iPhone & iPod Touch

image

Try Guess This is a great app which takes the popular type of game where you have to guess what the other player's word is a big step forward.  In this game you get to pick a word, or choose a word that is suggested from the apps library of over 3000 words.  Once you've chosen your word you need to help the other player guess it by sending them an image.  You can find a picture in your mobile device or take a new picture to send to them to help them guess.



Early hands-on reviewers agree: iPad mini reigns as best small tablet. [Roundup]

image

 
Technically, according to my credit card company, I already own an iPad mini. But that doesn't mean I have it in my clean little hands yet. In fact, (cue the sad violin) mine isn't due to arrive until around Thanksgiving since I went ahead and ordered the Cellular capable model.
 
Nonetheless, some of my colleagues have been fortunate enough to have gotten their mitts on an early release of the highly anticipated iPad mini. So without further adieu, here are some of my favorite tidbits from the first crop of reviews of the new Apple iPad mini:
 
As a preface, one of my favorite observations right off the bat, comes from an astute reader at the Endgadget site. In the wake of a rather ironic public outcry for mediocrity, a commenter had this to say in the forum: “Apple is a premium brand. Their products will always come at a premium. That's why it's expensive, like any other premium brand. They charge more because their goal isn't to make the best cheap tablet, it's to make the best small tablet. And that comes at a premium. It's for customers who want that. Apple fills that market. So don't be shocked when their products' prices don't compare to their competitors who have lesser build quality and lesser customer service. If you don't want to pay BMW prices, you can buy a Ford.”
 
Now, with that in mind, let's move forward. One of the most impressive things I found with these reviews is their consensus that the iPad mini has immediately raised the bar, instantly becoming the best small tablet (despite Apple's omission of a Retina display) in a category where other companies have had time to make a dent and gain a foothold. Read on for snippets of expert's hand-on analysis of the game-changing iPad mini...


Scosche's IDR Audiophile Earphones Certainly Pack a Bang for the Buck!

image

 

From my experience, I know that generally speaking, Scosche makes great products! So I knew that when I sampled their Increased Dynamic Range (IDR) noise-isolating earphones that I'd be in for a treat!  Little did I know!

 

These audiophile grade earphones are crafted to let you get the most out of your music, “with brilliant highs, silky smooth mids and powerful bass for all music genres”. The IDR-656 are fully Siri compatible and include Scosche’s patented tapLINE III total-control-system. The mic is intelligently positioned and the speakers are equipped with powerful 11mm drivers to produce crystalline sound quality. A high-end set of earphones that are a good deal less than many others of similar calibur, available HERE for $80.00.



Toppin'Wiper App Review

image

In this fun game you hold the job of “Toppin' Wiper” at a donuts shop.  Your job, which may seem simple at first, is to keep the shop walls clean.  It becomes more difficult, however, when you find that any time people don't like the donuts they purchase they throw it at the wall of the shop!  This happens a surprising amount, so you'll have to clean fast in order to keep those walls clean!



The MacCase Flight Jacket: Elegance and Style with a Relaxed and Rugged Feel.

We all love a good accessory bag, something that fuses style and functionality in a way that is comfortable to wear and practical, all at the same time.

 

With that in mind, I'd like to introduce to you, a company called MacCase. MacCase are the manufacturers of an excellent line of leather carry bags that would suit both the modern, technologically savvy traveler, as easily as the fashion-forward cowgirl/boy type. With their sharp looking leather exteriors the MacCase line of leather iDevice bags give a decidedly modern twist to a classically elegant carryall.
