Outdoor Technology’s Adapt
is one of those clever inventions that seem self-evident after the fact. Once you see it, it just makes sense,
and almost immediately your mind begins to think of numerous ways it would be convenient to have around! In fact, the Adapt by Outdoor Technology is a relatively simple device; a Bluetooth relay with a built-in microphone, which recieves and transmits a Bluetooth signal between any devices equipped with a 3.5 mm audio jack. But that succinct description doesn't do this handy gadget justice.
Google it. See for yourself. There isn't really anything else on the market quite like this. Yes, there are a few bulky Bluetooth recievers or transmitters floating around out there, but noting this balanced between being a reciever, a transmitter and a microphone, all in a self-contained mini-adapter. Definitely nothing else this tiny or ruggedly built! This is a unique gizmo, in part because it doesnt attach to the transmission (iPhone) side of things, it attaches to the reciever (earphone) side of things, making your speakers, headset or car stereo Bluetooth enabled, just like that! The trailblazers at Outdoor Technology have an original product on their hands, one that sets a high bar for any such versatile Bluetooth adapters to come! Read on for more deatils on this amazing little invention!
Try Guess This is a great app which takes the popular type of game where you have to guess what the other player's word is a big step forward. In this game you get to pick a word, or choose a word that is suggested from the apps library of over 3000 words. Once you've chosen your word you need to help the other player guess it by sending them an image. You can find a picture in your mobile device or take a new picture to send to them to help them guess.
Technically, according to my credit card company, I already own an iPad mini. But that doesn't mean I have it in my clean little hands yet. In fact, (cue the sad violin) mine isn't due to arrive until around Thanksgiving since I went ahead and ordered the Cellular capable model.
Nonetheless, some of my colleagues have been fortunate enough to have gotten their mitts on an early release of the highly anticipated iPad mini. So without further adieu, here are some of my favorite tidbits from the first crop of reviews of the new Apple iPad mini:
As a preface, one of my favorite observations right off the bat, comes from an astute reader at the Endgadget
site. In the wake of a rather ironic public outcry for mediocrity, a commenter had this to say in the forum: “Apple is a premium brand. Their products will always come at a premium. That's why it's expensive, like any other premium brand. They charge more because their goal isn't to make the best cheap tablet, it's to make the best small tablet. And that comes at a premium. It's for customers who want that. Apple fills that market. So don't be shocked when their products' prices don't compare to their competitors who have lesser build quality and lesser customer service. If you don't want to pay BMW prices, you can buy a Ford.”
Now, with that in mind, let's move forward. One of the most impressive things I found with these reviews is their consensus that the iPad mini has immediately raised the bar, instantly becoming the best small tablet (despite Apple's omission of a Retina display) in a category where other companies have had time to make a dent and gain a foothold. Read on for snippets of expert's hand-on analysis of the game-changing iPad mini...
From my experience, I know that generally speaking, Scosche makes great products! So I knew that when I sampled their Increased Dynamic Range (IDR) noise-isolating earphones that I'd be in for a treat! Little did I know!
These audiophile grade earphones are crafted to let you get the most out of your music, “with brilliant highs, silky smooth mids and powerful bass for all music genres”. The IDR-656 are fully Siri compatible and include Scosche’s patented tapLINE III total-control-system. The mic is intelligently positioned and the speakers are equipped with powerful 11mm drivers to produce crystalline sound quality. A high-end set of earphones that are a good deal less than many others of similar calibur, available HERE for $80.00.
In this fun game you hold the job of “Toppin' Wiper” at a donuts shop. Your job, which may seem simple at first, is to keep the shop walls clean. It becomes more difficult, however, when you find that any time people don't like the donuts they purchase they throw it at the wall of the shop! This happens a surprising amount, so you'll have to clean fast in order to keep those walls clean!

I've written about Nomad's artistic brushes
before but their newest line, the Flex series
, adds a nice twist. As with all of their styluses, they use capacitive hairlike synthetic threads as a paintbrush would, but thanks to their conductivity, you can use painting apps, like ArtRage, with greater control. With the Flex line, you can add a second tip and flip the stylus around and have a thicker or thinner brush tip, depending on your needs.
