What I read this week - The Rookie, and Parolisse!

image

I read two very different sources of inspiration this week... First, Parolisse is a study reference to help one drill down into the Bible. The app includes several translations and supporting material to help you understand practically any Bible topic. Next up is The Rookie: an amazingly cool story of a rookie QB starting his first season in the Galactic Football League. To simply state that The Rookie blends Sci-Fi yarn-spinning and football together (admittedly a weird mix) is akin to stating the Taj Mahal is but yet another ornately decorated building. The story just freakin ROCKS! If you are a hater of either football or science fiction, The Rookie might just convert you to both in one fell swoop...! No exaggeration... 



Keep the party going with HMDX Jam Bluetooth speaker, and myCharge portable battery pack! Black Friday specials!

image

I've written, glowingly, before about the HMDX Jam Wireless Portable Speaker that uses Bluetooth to pump out solid sounds and act as a speakerphone.  And it does so in a solidly built, beautiful design, that, when packaged in its clear jar, is suggestive of jelly, hence the name Jam!

 



Introducing Bloggn: A truly beautiful Tumblr client you'll love to use!

Bloggn is such a good Tumblr client, it has already made me wish I was a more frequent Tumblr user, and with such a silky smooth Tumblr interface at my fingertips I have been enjoying my time on Tumblr more than ever. Lately, with the help of Bloggn, I can't help but notice myself making excuses to keep checking back with my Tumbler account, just for the ease and intuitiveness of this stellar app, working on this Bloggn app review being top of the list.

 



EventiCal App Review

image

EventiCal is an interesting app from PARK LLC which can help people manage their busy social life so they never miss anything that they wanted to do again.  You can create your own events and share them with friends over Facebook (without ever leaving the app!) or add in a special event that you plan on attending.   Where the app really gets impressive is the fact that when you log in to your Facebook account with EventiCal it will go out and find all the events listed on yours and your friends Facebook accounts.  The entire app is very well made and easy to navigate making it the best way yet to use your mobile device improves your life.



Give your iOS devices a HyperBoost of storage with the iUSBport

image
Sanho makes a variety of battery packs under the HyperJuice name that give you extra power for iOS, Apple, and other USB based devices, but I was intrigued by their latest offering. The iUSBport is a hockey puck sized device that takes any USB hard drive or flash drive and turns it into a wireless storage device!

Find your valuable stuff with FinderCodes!

image

There is nothing crappier, in my opinion, than knowing the sinking feeling of misplacing or losing a valuable gadget. You know how this scenario goes (as I certainly do): It might be while on a faraway trip, or the restaurant booth down the street. Once you realize it's gone, the first thing you think, right after you contemplate a suitable way to kill yourself is, "Wow, [explicative]...I just lost my 300+ dollar iPad mini! I should just go shoot myself now!!". You also know it's game over... GONE, period! You also probably feel a bit sick to the stomach. Truth to tell if you lose your new iPad mini, you're probably right, but there is a single ray of hope. A good Samaritan, who (if they knew how to contact you), might actually return your valuable gear. FinderCodes can make this possible through the use of a simple QR code tag, and also lets you sweeten the incentive with a reward. Really, what have you got to lose!



My Mini: The Unveiling. A Live Accounting...

image

 

10:01 AM: My iPad mini arrived this morning, Thursday November 15th, finally! Right on time! Actually, I think I got mine a little earlier than some folks, maybe because I was up early that October morning, likely one of the first to place their order online at the Apple Store.
 
 
I've been curious as to what it would feel like, seeing the package arrive, unboxing my diminutive new tablet which I already feel I know so much about. I mean, it's not like I don't already have both an iPhone and an iPad 2. Would it still be as big a deal, would this new iDevice WOW me even more than what I'm used to, more than I might expect?



iPhone Reviews | iPhone Life Magazine

We have several iPhone reviews.  Articles like, iPhone Goes 3G,is one of many that gives you a more in depth look at Apple's products. Here are several iPhone reviews on past and current models.

"On July 11th, 2008, Apple and AT&T stores started selling the iPhone 3G, and over one million consumers bought one in the first three days, making this the hottest smart phone launch ever.  The 3G brings speed,assisted GPS, and a new low price to Apple's smart phone platform. And while the hardware has definitely been improved, it's the OS 2.0 and software suite that is truly revolutionary."

In iPhone 3G S and OS 3.0, we take a first look at the new 3G S. Resting in your hand, it looks pretty much like the 3G, but in this case, looks are deceiving. The iPhone 3G S sports a faster processor, better battery life, a 3 megapixel camera, enhanced 3D graphics, and a variety of other improvements.  Best of all, it's claimed to be twice as fast as the 3G.

We also reviewed the new OS 3.0 and software suite.  Apple added some nice features, including Cut & Paste capability, enhanced A2DPBluetooth that supports stereo headsets, an upgrade of SMS to full Multi MediaServices, improved search feature, landscape keyboard in Mail and other apps,and additional enhancements to Calendar, Contacts, iPod, and Safari.  Apple also added a new native app to the application suite.  VoiceMemo lets you capture and edit short audio recordings and e-mail or SMS them toa friend.

iPhone reviews: Apple began selling an unlocked versionof the iPhone 4S (iPhone Life Article Here). That means that you can use it with any carrier, andyou don't need to sign a contract.  Unlocked phones are a big advantage for frequent travelers. GSM is the most common standard abroad,and the whole cell phone business model is typically much different in other countries. No contracts, no subsidized phones. You simply buy a SIM card and put it in your phone. You can even buy SIM cards at kiosks in airports and on the street.
