Mapi improves on Apple's iPad SmartCase design, and brings it to the iPhone

image
I've written about Mapi's iPad cases before, and I'm a fan of their materials and quality. They make cases for iPads that learn from Apple's SmartCover concept and take it a step further.


Like Apple's SmartCover, the flap folds in a triangle, to offer a couple of viewing angles. But you can rotate the stand to use it in portrait or landscape mode, which even Apple's case doesn't do.

GM Is Bringing Siri To Your Car

image

Just this week, Chevrolet announced the integration of Siri with upcoming Spark 1LT and 2LT models and Sonic LTZ and RS models. Siri, the virtual assistant that has been helping iPhone users with hands-free tasks since late last year will soon be integrated with these vehicles through their MyLink infotainment system. The Siri-enabled automobiles will be available to the public early next year. Using pass through voice recognition through the vehicle’s MyLink infotainment system, Siri will be controlled both hands-free and eyes-free through the driver’s voice after one touch of a steering wheel button.



Apple now selling unlocked iPhone 5

image

Yesterday Apple began selling an unlocked iPhone 5 on the Apple website, with prices starting at $649 for the 16GB model. What's the advantage of an unlocked device? In the long run you may save money, since you don't have to sign a contract with a carrier. There are a lot of carriers these days that offer pay-as-you-go minutes. Let's say that you don't make a lot of calls on your phone and you're often in range of a wireless router. You'd likely save money with an unlocked phone.



EyeTV Mobile Review

image

For those old enough to remember portable handheld TV's that captured video broadcasts over the air with an antenna, Elgato's EyeTV Mobile offers a tinge of Déjà vu. For everyone else, the product provides a way to watch real-time local area digital TV broadcasts for free (that is, no additional data charges incurred). So is this price of freedom worth the nearly hundred dollar cost for the hardware? Read on to find out.

Olloclip updated for iPhone 5, works with Panorama mode #olloclip

image
I've been a fan of the Olloclip since it came out, so I was glad to see the iPhone 5 version was coming. In fact, I've been able to play with a prerelease version for a few weeks, and you can get one now that it was just announced today.



GM announces Siri coming on three new autos

image

GM announced today that three of its new models will come with a button on the steering wheel that will activate Siri in the same manner as holding down the home button on an iPhone. The cars' MyLink infotainment system will connect to the iPhone via Bluetooth. Drivers will be able to do things such as make voice-activated hands-free calls, play songs from their iTiunes library, send a text message, use their calendar, and ask simple questions, such as the latest sports scores.
