Wear you iPod nano on your wrist with iWatchz #CES

image
Ever since the latest iteration of the iPod nano was introduced, people have been trying to wear their nano as a wristwatch. Computer accessory vendors have jumped on the bandwagon, often offering little more than a Velcro wristband and calling it a watch case.


Fortunately, iWatchz is a line of accessories designed by a comapny that is first and foremost a watchband company, and they have used that skill and design expertise to make a high quality suite of wristwatch bands for the iPod nano.


Blippar may be the future of mobile advertising #CES

image
This time of year, people get excited about the Super Bowl, if for nothing else, than the commercials. But still, even the best commercials are one-way and non-interactive. At CES, I got a chance to meet with Blippar, an augmented reality mobile advertising firm.



iOS App Review: Piggies and Woogies: Natural Enemies

image

Piggy Woogy seems to operate on the premise that match-three games are way too easy and don’t feature enough lupine commandoes with their hearts set on eating you alive.  I have to agree.



Review: Petri-Dash by Distorted Poetry

image

Petri-Dash is one of the new generation of “dodge everything” games that realizes a game can always use something more to do than just dodge things.  In this case you are some sort of sub-species that lives in a Petri dish, and all you want to do is survive.  In order to do that you’ll either have to dodge all the other organisms or take them on in a battle of butting heads in order to dominate the dish.  Everything comes at a cost, however, and in this case you are constantly losing life just by swimming around.  You are also weakened if you collide with another organism without dashing them.  When your life is spent is back to the primordial pond for you.  You can collect energy pellets to refuel your health, and there are also little versions of yourself that will attach to you when you run them over and give you bonus multipliers to your score.  You lose these friends when you hit one of the bad guys.



We jammin with House of Marley headphones #CES

image
At a certain point, probably around $100, any set of headphones is going to be just fine for the majority of listeners. So at that point, it comes down to quality, comfort, style, colors, and branding. And if the House of Marley, founded by the legendary Bob Marley's family, has anything to say about it, a manufacturer's ecological footprint and philanthropic efforts should also be considered.



Angry Boo App Review

image

The angry boo app is a game where you have to shoot a ghost to different platforms using a slingshot like launcher.  This is similar to Angry Birds, but without the end goal of having to knock down anything or kill any enemies.  Moving from platform to platform without falling to the ground is the main aspect of the game.  Each platform is a spider web, which you then pull down to ‘shoot’ the ghost on to the next web.  Collecting gold coins while navigating through each level is another important part of the game, earning more points for each gold coin collected.



VISBYH is a stylus for a fashionista #MacWorld

image
The VISBYH LHOPE stylus is a comfortable and cute stylus that can be color coordinated to match your attire, as long as you're wearing bright colors!


In fact, the stylus and packaging remind me of a makeup kit. It even comes with two caps, of different colors, and if you were to purchase multiple styluses (stylii?) you could have a bunch of color combinations.


Review: Terra Noctis by BulkyPix

image

I have nothing against progress, and in fact I’m thrilled whenever someone interjects a cool new mechanic into the genres I love.  The truth is, however, that truly original ideas are almost nonexistent these days.  So if I can’t have something new and dazzling I’m perfectly content with a solid game that takes old school concepts and implements them well, and that’s exactly what Terra Noctis from Bulkypix does.  The story is silly and mostly superfluous, the levels are familiar yet well designed, and money has morphed from coins to fairies, but in the end the most important thing is that it’s simply a whole lot of fun.

image
I was at my local Apple Users Group and a member came up to me to rave about the great deal he got when he sold his various Mac computers and a display. I shouldn't have been surprised when he said it was SellYourMac.com, the popular used Mac (and iPhone) buyer and reseller.
