What gadget lover doesn't dream of the day they can be wearing sunglasses with overlay displays, augmenting their reality with location statistics, friend status, emails and every so often, a video. While we haven't quite yet progressed to having a low-cost consumer device that does all these things, the Vuzix Wrap 1200 delivers on at least one of these features. Read on to learn more.
Go ahead and brag. Whether it's because your kid is an honor student or your niece is adorable, or just because you have an iPad or iPhone. Or maybe it's all of the above?! If so, you are in luck because the nice folks at Braggables.com have a line of iOS accessories (named iBrag of course) that let you carry your gadgets in style and brag about your loved ones at the same time! Their items are available in a 'wet crocodile' style that many women pay a lot more for at stores like Brighton, but to be honest, as a man, I like it too, at least in black!
Arkon sent me their recently released tablet mount system to try out. This universal system not only allows you to use your iPad, but a wide assortment of tablets in your vehicle by placing the device in a mount system that attaches to your windshield.
In the package you get the extension arm and spring loaded holder. There are six arms that also slide onto the holder. They consist of two sizes that allow you to mix and match for your particular needs.

I have been impressed with Glasshouse Apps' Early Edition RSS reader since it was released well over a year ago. Since then, Glasshouse has been busy refining their flagship application to be as iOS fluid-friendly as possible. Their results have culminated in their next generation RSS reader, Early Edition 2. Is it worth the new purchase price? Read on to find out.
My husband, Bill, was a helicopter pilot, who flew in Vietnam and on the Delaware State Police. Although he's retired now, he still has great memories from his flying days. When I saw the HELO TC remote-controlled helicopter being promoted online, I immediately asked for one to review. I wanted my husband to try it and see if he would recommend it. He does, and so do I! I found it to be just as much fun as he does!
Griffin is no stranger to the iPad accessories market, so it's not surprising that they would branch out beyond the usual selection of cases and stands by offering a niche product that satisfies an important need. Read on to learn more about their TechSafe Case.
The TechSafe Case was specifically designed for an unsheathed iPad 2, so that the slip snuggly protects the iPad 2 from flimsy extraction. Once the case is tightly coupled around the iPad 2, a cable and 4-dial combination safety lock can be used to keep the iPad 2 secured to a table or display stand. The most obvious use cases for the TechSafe Case are for trade show exhibitions, store displays and interactive kiosks.
Every weekend we will be raffling off tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:
We have many choices of protection for our idevices these days. With all the many companies available we almost must do some research on the topic before purchasing. Well I'm here for that very reason. I enjoy bringing you all the many different case reviews available. The iPad is a very expensive item so we must take great care of our device. Pad & Quill make a unique type case. It resembles the back of a book. When the device is inside the case and on a book shelf it would be very easy to not recognize it sitting inside the bookshelf. The Pad & Quill case is unique but provides nic

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.
