Dress your iPhone for success with the Creativo case from Sena

image
Sena makes some great leather cases for iPads, and I've written about them in the past, so I was excited to see their latest iPhone offering. The Creativo case doesn't disappoint. Naturally, as with all Sena cases, the leather is high quality, but at under $40, it's still affordable.

The SoulMate app is a great app for just about anyone who is sick of having to use all different apps and other communications methods to get in touch with their friends, family or significant other.  This app combines the features of things like text messaging, phone calls, email's and much more as well.  It makes it very quick and easy to get in contact with anyone. 



Monster-sized mophie Powerstation now available!

image

First caught a glimpse of this, well for lack of a better description--fist-sized block of lithium-ion in a hard shell--at CES earlier this year. It can top up all your gadgets and then some with a 6000 mAh of raw power, the powerstation Pro is finally available for purchase at the spendy sum of $129.95. It not only charges fast, but can also stop a bullet (okay, I made that up). It is, however, designed to stand up to the elements including sand, dust and water. You can learn more in the included PR release and embedded YT vid after the break...



Making the stock Videos application play every MP4 file possible

image

I've dedicated several articles (latest one HERE) to converting videos into MP4 (M4V / MOV) files so that they can be played back by the H.264 decoder of even older-generation iDevices. In the current one, I elaborate on how how you can play the output files with the built-in, stock Videos application. This article also belong to my Multimedia article series, in which I plan to publish a “Streaming multimedia over your local Wi-Fi” in the next few days and, then, finally, the real Multimedia bible.

Thinner and lighter: that's the general direction of Apple's gizmos. And rumors are swirling that Apple will use technologies in the iPhone 5 that will allow it to be even more svelte.

If you know games, you know Unreal Engine is the head of the pack for 3D graphics.

Today's headlines could hardly be more of a contrast: Verizon activated 3.2 billion iPhones in the first quarter of 2012, and, based on this enhanced revenue stream, reported earnings of $3.91 billion.

I have a second-generation Apple TV set-top box, and really enjoy using AirPlay to stream movies from my iPad to my 42-inch HDTV. It's fun how simple it is. If you have an iOS device and Apple TV on the same WiFi network, you simply start playing a video and tap a button that gives you the option of playing the movie on your TV instead of your iPad. If you need to go out and want to continue watching the movie, you simply toggle back to the iPad and continue watching.



Latest rumor: iPhone 5 to use Liquidmetal for case

There's not a lot of substance to this rumor, just a brief report on a Korean tech news website attributing the information to industry sources: "According to industry sources, the next flagship phones of the companies are expected to adopt unprecedented materials for their main bodies, that is, ceramic for the Galaxy S3 and liquid metal for iPhone 5, both being thin, light and highly resistant to external impacts."
