At a certain point, probably around $100, any set of headphones is going to be just fine for the majority of listeners. So at that point, it comes down to quality, comfort, style, colors, and branding. And if the House of Marley, founded by the legendary Bob Marley's family, has anything to say about it, a manufacturer's ecological footprint and philanthropic efforts should also be considered.
The angry boo app is a game where you have to shoot a ghost to different platforms using a slingshot like launcher. This is similar to Angry Birds, but without the end goal of having to knock down anything or kill any enemies. Moving from platform to platform without falling to the ground is the main aspect of the game. Each platform is a spider web, which you then pull down to ‘shoot’ the ghost on to the next web. Collecting gold coins while navigating through each level is another important part of the game, earning more points for each gold coin collected.
The VISBYH LHOPE stylus is a comfortable and cute stylus that can be color coordinated to match your attire, as long as you're wearing bright colors!
In fact, the stylus and packaging remind me of a makeup kit. It even comes with two caps, of different colors, and if you were to purchase multiple styluses (stylii?) you could have a bunch of color combinations.
There are a ton of screen protectors, and you can often get them for free when you purchase a case. So why would you pay for one? Simple, for the same reason nobody pays me to play golf. I'm an amateur and if you want a good performance, get a professional. The same is true with screen protectors. The free ones are typically worth what you pay for them. Bubbles and fingerprints are almost inevitable, and they end up making the screen protector useless.
I have nothing against progress, and in fact I’m thrilled whenever someone interjects a cool new mechanic into the genres I love. The truth is, however, that truly original ideas are almost nonexistent these days. So if I can’t have something new and dazzling I’m perfectly content with a solid game that takes old school concepts and implements them well, and that’s exactly what Terra Noctis from Bulkypix does. The story is silly and mostly superfluous, the levels are familiar yet well designed, and money has morphed from coins to fairies, but in the end the most important thing is that it’s simply a whole lot of fun.
I was at my local Apple Users Group and a member came up to me to rave about the great deal he got when he sold his various Mac computers and a display. I shouldn't have been surprised when he said it was SellYourMac.com, the popular used Mac (and iPhone) buyer and reseller.
I'm becoming a fan of Kickstarter, because it's democratizing manufacturing and enabling individuals with an idea to bring it to market faster. In a way, it is the hardware equivalent of the App Store. As consumers, we benefit form a wider variety of gadgets that otherwise might never see the light of day. The downside is, as a Kickstarter funder, you have to make a leap of faith and preorder an item without the benefit of even seeing a prototype of the product in person.
The team at Studio Neat has created and launched a few products on Kickstarter, such as a tripod mount for the iPhone, but the one I really liked, and bought at MacWorld, is their Cosmonaut stylus.
The Marblez is a new app which is similar to the bejeweled but with some interesting twists. First, rather than jewels the game uses different colored marbles. There are two different modes of play, classic and action. One of them allows you to advance up in levels while the other just gets progressively more difficult as you continue to play. The object of the game is to get three or more marbles of the same color lined up horizontally. When this happens, they disappear. To line them up you simply slide each of five columns of marbles up and down.
If you don't have an iPhone 4S and wish you could have Siri, may be Evi a try. This $0.99 app lets you ask questions in natural language in a manner similar to Siri. However, it doesn't have other Siri features, such as the ability to interact with other iPhone apps (calendar, etc.), nor can you dictate a text message. But reviews do say that it does answer questions pretty well. You can read more on Mashable. The main complaint in the App Store is that the servers are unresponsive.
