Mikey makes for a better microphone on your iOS device

image

The iPhone and iPad do a lot of things well, but if you agree that the built-in microphone could use some improvement, you should check out the Mikey Digital add-on from Blue Microphones.

Blue is known for the very high quality microphones for Mac and other uses, so it's nice to see them bring their expertise to the iOS world. 



iPhone 5S, fifth generation iPad predicted to appear June or July 2013, iTV in fall

image

The arrival of new products is many months away, but already we're getting predictions regarding what and when. And note that these predictions aren't completely fanciful: they come from a market analyst who has industry contacts. Peter Misek of investment firm Jefferies says that we'll likely see an iPhone 5S in June or July of next year. He thinks it will have, according to AppleInsider, "a new super HD camera/screen, a better battery, and NFC." He also says that there's a possiblity that the new phone will come in 6 colors, like the new iPod touch, that it will have an IGZO display, and will have a 128GB option.



What I played this week - Slenderman, and Ice Riders!

image

Slenderman: Unknown Chronicles is one of a few games or apps on iTunes related to the Slender horror genre. The legend is of a tall, slender man that appears in the background of old photographs that include small children. Evidence of kidnappings surround these events, and the Slenderman is purportedly able to stretch his arms and torso to extreme lengths to capture his quarry. The game is sort of like an iOS version of Blair Witch Project (if anyone remembers that)! Ice Riders, a decidedly upbeat, platform-like snowboard simulation combines custom course design with tricky game physics to create a unique, chilly and fun time-killer...

T-Mobile to offer iPhone next year

image

One of the more interesting tidbits in the past couple days was T-Mobile's announcement that they'll be offering the iPhone next year — but with a difference. They'll not offer subsized phones, like the other carriers do, but instead will either charge full price or will lease the phone to their customers.



EC-BC's Hercules: A hardy backpack that lives up to its name!

image

Everyone knows that the name Hercules is associated with great strength and integrity. Now, with their new backpack of the same name, EC-BC has done a most excellent job of creating a high-quailty backpack that embodies those same qualities of strength and integrity.

 

 

The Hercules is a stylish bag that looks nothing like a military issue pack, nor even a particularly rugged bag. But don't let its fashionably attractive appearance decieve you! The Hercules is every bit as tough and durable as many "military standard" backpacks! In fact, with its superior craftsmanship and intense attention to detail, the Hercules is actually more rugged than many military issue bags that I have evaluated over the years! Now that's saying something...

Sonos update brings wireless streaming to iOS!

image

I have been a big Sonos fan for years. If you are not familiar with the high-quality line of wireless music systems, please do yourself a favor this holiday season and either search our site (keyword "Sonos"), check my latest Play:3 review here, or simply go to their home page here. It is the single best wireless music system I have reviewed. Anyway, the point is to inform that a recent update to the iOS application experience now includes streaming from your iPad, iPod touch or iPhone. You needed a dock accessory in previous versions to do this, so it is indeed a very cool enhancement... Read on for full details.
