Filamente SharePoint App Review

image

 

Filamente SharePoint is an app that every professional should have.  Especially for those that are constantly involved with documents; this app is perfect for your needs.  In a basic sense; Filamente allows you to upload, download, and share all of your desired documents.  Even though that doesn’t seem like much; if you do a lot of business from your iPad or iPhone, then you realize the difficulty in viewing and uploading certain documents due to format.  Luckily; this is where Filament SharePoint comes in to make things easier.

Some of us are looking for recording solutions that are simple to use. We’re not sound engineers or experts in electronics. If that’s you, check out the Samson Meteor Mic.

Here’s why:



What I played this week - Dark Meadow and Dead Space!

image
It was a joyous Halloween week of gory shooter games, which still has not ended! Dead Space, released earlier this year, is a gore-fest of terror-inducing abominations that spring up on you from just about everywhere--easily the top spot of the genre. I've had the game for awhile, but just finally getting around to really playing it (I have a long queue, so sue me). Also in this edition is a tasty game called Dark Meadow: a scary shooter, and a puzzle-solving adventure game all wrapped in one. Read on for my mini-reviews of both games. Eric Pankoke has previously posted up on both...

Stabile Pro Pivoting iPad Stand: Review

image

 

The Stabile Pro is one of my favorite stands on the market.  The Stabile Pro stand is twice the weight of the iPad at 4 lbs.  The extra weight provides the adequate needed balance to secure the stand.  One of the greatest features of this stand is it’s built in the U.S.A from solid steel.  It has a pivoting head for viewing in either landscape or portrait view.  It has a slit cut in the back for cable positioning.  The stand brackets that hold the iPad secure are covered by protective rubberized tips. 



Writer Bluetooth Case by Adonit: Review

image

Adonit has developed a new Bluetooth keyboard for the iPad called, Writer.  They offer a model of Writer for both versions of the iPad.  The Writer Bluetooth case is quite different from most others I have used in the past.  It not only looks a bit different but feels differently as well.   I think what makes it look a bit different is the fact the iPad simply snaps into the Bluetooth case along a bracket type hinge.  It doesn't have its own back persay.  The Writer has several on board keys such as play, rewind, fast forward, and more.

Detailing Some of the Great Apps that Make the iPad "The" iPad

image

 

I’m sure that a lot of people can agree with me when I say I would be lost without my Apple products, including my iPad. From doing interviews and writing blogs for racing to working on apps for my company ZaAPP, it’s mostly done on my iPad while I’m waiting to catch a plane or sitting at the racetrack.



Estimated 2 million iPads of new design to be built by year's end

image

DigiTimes continues to share rumors of new iPads coming in March of next year, and says that in order to meet demand, Apple will start stockpiling as many as 2 million units by the end of this year. Apparently, there are two designs in the works, code-named J1 and J2. Both have a higher resolution than the iPad 2, as well as different specs and sizes. Since things are still at an early stage, apparently Apple hasn't yet decided which model will be released. It likely depends on availablility of components, production costs, and market.



Everything iPad - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

What's bigger than an iPhone, smaller than a MacBook, and the most anticipated Apple product since the original iPhone? On January 27, at a special invitation only event at the San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Steve Jobs announced Apple's new "magical, revolutionary product" -- the iPad. Meant to fill the gap between the laptop and phone, Jobs said it was "way better" than either. Let's take a look at it.

Thin, lightweight, and powerful

The iPad shares many hardware features with the iPhone, including an accelerometer, an orientation sensor to switch from portrait to landscape mode, solid-state memory, and the same 30-pin doc connector. Connectivity is also virtually the same, with wireless 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR included on all models.

iPad runs iPhone apps!

The iPad will run a version of iPhone OS, and the new device can run virtually any app developed for the iPhone or iPod touch. Aps developed for the iPhone can run on the iPad in native resolution but is large enough to touch type on.

The larger screen not only makes familiar iPhone apps like Calendar, Mail, and Safari look stunning, it also provides screen real estate for more complex elements in the UI. For example, Calendar display a split-sreen view that describes the day's appointments on the left and shows you a color map of used time slots on the right. The split-screen view in Contacts displays you contacts list on the left and the full information for the contact you've selected on the right.

An ebook reader and more

Although not build into the iPad, Apple will offer a free app called iBooks, which will allow you to download and read books from it's new virtual bookstore. The new iBooks store will be accessed from and as easy to use as iTunes.

The ultimate media device?

The iPad is not the world's first tablet PC or the first eBook reader. Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer, and others sell Windows-based tablets, and Amazon has had considerable success with it's Kindle. But Apple thinks the iPad will reinvent the category by offering a vastly superior multi-touch interface an easy access to a wide-variety of apps and media via iTunes. Aple hopes to make the iPad the ultimate media device by leveraging it's existing assets which include over 100 million paying iTunes customers, established relationships with music and video content providers, and over 100,000 iPhone OS app developers.
