Bring a Bag of Rhythm to Your Next Jammin' Party this Summer

image

Phil Spector gave us the Wall of Sound. Julie Andrews gave us the Sound of Music. Now, Bob Marley's family wants to give us the Bag of Rhythm. I've written about the House of Marley before, and their commitment to both quality audio equipment and charitable efforts through their 1love foundation, named after Bob Marley's classic song.

Breath=Battery Power? An Innovative iPhone Charger Concept

image

Yesterday I came across an article on the Huffington Post about a device (still in conceptual form) that charges your iPhone by converting your breath into electrical energy. Theoretically, it would allow you to charge your iPhone while sleeping, running, or performing any other act of breathing. The only catch? You have to wear this Storm Trooper-esque mask (shown at right).

 



Free CW Network app streams full episodes of primetime programs

image

This is a trend that I like: more and more programming from the networks is available online via free streaming video. Now the CW Network has joined in, offering its complete primetime slate of programs via steaming video. Their new app, The CW Network, is available for free. In addition to streaming video, it also offers clips, photos, social networking, and a schedule. CW, which launched in 2006, is a joint venture of CBS and Warner Brothers.



Survey of iPhone 4S users finds that 87% use Siri

image

The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday on a survey of iPhone 4S users that found that 87% use Siri at least once a month. However, the survey found that only about a third use Siri daily or almost daily to place phone calls, send text messages, or look up information. Those functions are also the most commonly used features of the iPhone. The survey found that few use it for scheduling meetings or playing music, with about a third of respondents never having used it for those functions.

What I played this week - Action Block Buster, nulis and Motorcity!

image

I haven't done a "What I Played" column in a while, mainly due to lack of time to play much of anything. As the saying goes about all work and no play--so decided it was time to take a break and grab some new games! This week I downloaded Action Block Buster, a multi-spacial brick breaking experience; nulis, a physics game which defies description; and an exceptional rail shooter freebie from Disney called Motorcity. Read on for the full WIPTW ("What I played this week") roundup of these new games.

Rumor that iPhone 5 will have 4.6-inch display

image

If we're looking at an October launch for the iPhone 5, that means we're looking at over 6 months of rumors. Whew, how will we survive? And no doubt I'll be purveying every last one of them. Despite the huge success of the current form-factor, which has changed very little in 5 years, rumors persist that the iPhone 5 will have a larger screen.
