MyScript Calculator app wins Mobile App Showdown at CES 2013!!

image

I'll do a full post up on the Mobile App Showdown later, but wanted to get the word out that MyScript Calculator, an awesomely cool scratchpad-like calculation app (with handwriting recognition and the ability to solve equations) ran away with the MAS this year at CES. The app garnered oohs and aahs during the 4-minute pitch, and the applause-o-meter went off the chart as the crowd went wild for it at the end. If you grab one app this year, make it this seriously cool, award winning calculation app (currently FREE)!



App Review - Free Music Download Pro Plus

image

Ever since high speed internet became widely available people have been trying to find ways to get their music for free.  While there have been dozens of different options over the years most of them have either been illegal or unreliable (or both!).  Today, however, you can get thousands of free songs, videos and even live concerts delivered directly to your iPhone, iPod or iPad quickly and easily.  The songs are completely free and 100% legal too!  This is possible by using the free music download pro app on your mobile device.



Walmart to offer Straight Talk iPhone with unlimited calling, data, and texting for $45/month

image

Walmart and Straight Talk announced yesterday that beginning January 11 they'll be offering the iPhone as a no-contract phone with unlimited nationwide calling, data, and texting for $45 per month. Straight Talk is the nation's largest no-contract phone provider. That's a great rate, and certainly saves you money over the $70 per month plan from other carriers. But you have to pay the entire cost of the iPhone: $649 for a 16GB iPhone 5, and $449 for an 8GB iPhone 4.

House of Marley Rocks CES 2013!

The House of Marley: Not just a brand, not just high quality gear, but a revolutionary lifestyle choice.

 

 

If you follow my articles, then you already know I am a big fan of House of Marley. Aside from the fact that House of Marley is spearheaded by Rohan Marley, son of one of the most influential artist of all time, Bob Marley, House of Marley is also a brand and company that is so enthusiastically focused on the quality and integrity of their product that it was an entirely refreshing experience for me to be able to visit with them at CES 2013 today here in Las Vegas.

 

My visit to the House of Marley station today at CES was an absolute joy. The House of Marley staff was both completely welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about their products and also, so enthusiastic about the latest additions to an already amazing line of gear. Theirs has been one of the most enjoyable booths I’ve had the pleasure of visiting at this year’s CES.

Customize your iPhone, with metallic prints from Chromaluxe

image
I'm a fan of aluminum photos. I have a nice family portrait printed direct on aluminum and it gets great feedback. Such prints resist fading, water damage, tears, etc., so I was excited to see the Chromaluxe cases for the iPhone 5 and 4/4S.



Review - iHome iW3 Wireless Speaker System

image

Back in 2011, I reviewed the iW1 when it first came out; an awesomely portable/rechargeable wireless speaker from iHome--portable, as in literally no wires--with an internal 2600 mAh Li-ion battery. The Wi-Fi setup was a bit sketchy, but I finally figured out a compromise by setting up a second Wi-Fi access point. Been looking forward to trying out one of the new iW3 models and got my hands on a review unit. The iW3 is like the iW1, but taller, lighter and easier to haul around the house. The sound quality is pretty close to what I remember from the iW1, and though it won't blow out a window, it will let you easily push quality music to any room in your home.
