iPhoneography Tip of the Week — To Flash or Not to Flash

image

The iPhone's built-in camera is one of the most widely used cameras in the world. Each week we will feature an iPhoneography tip to help you take better pictures with your iPhone!

In the olden days (before iPhones, of course), it was difficult to take photos indoors unless you had a flash. Today, many point-and-shoot camera users have problems using flash when taking pictures of people because of the dreaded red eye effect.

With iPhone's built-in light source and red-eye brush, Apple has solved that problem to a large degree. You can turn the light on or off as you wish or leave it in its Auto setting.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Antonio Meze, the extremely talented designer of Meze ebony wood headphones. Antonio Meze is both a classic-modernist designer as well as a musician and audiophile, all of which is apparent the moment you put on a pair of his headphones. The quality of craftsmanship is simply exceptional, as is the quality of sound!

Chunky Pig Contest - Get Your Game Published and Win an iPad mini!

image

I almost always prefer a good indie game over franchise games from a big publisher. I like to see the little guy win (in and outside of games), so any news forwarding that agenda is worthy in my book.

Chunky Pig, a marketing company for mobile game development (started by games industry veteran Nick Malaperiman), kicked off a contest at GDC to give game developers a chance to get their iOS game ideas noticed by premier publishers in the business (and even win an iPad mini). Enter the contest at Chunky Pig, or read below for the full press info on the event.

T-Mobile Adds the iPhone — and 4G, Too

image

T-Mobile, the only of the four major carriers not to offer the iPhone, has finally joined the club. At a media event today in New York City, the company announced it will begin selling the iPhone April 12 — but with a difference. Unlike the other carriers, which sell the iPhone for a subsidized price of $199 if one signs a two-year contract, T-Mobile is switching to only selling unsubsidized, contract-free phones. You make a $99.99 downpayment, and then pay $20 per month for two years to pay for your phone. That works out to a total cost of $580.

I love nothing more than iDevice products constructed of natural and organic materials. The feel and durability of accessories made from natural materials is comforting to the touch and a welcome modification to our otherwise cold, hard, metal and glass iDevices. So if you're looking to add an element of natural elegance to your iPad, I have a couple of great products to share with you.
