If you've always wanted a Porsche of your own, or if you're fortunate enough to have one, but want a spare to play with, you owe it to yourself to checkout the latest remote control car from Silverlit.





Audyssey Audio Dock Air now more valuable than ever

image

I was a little skeptical of the Audyssey Audio Dock Air when I first saw it, but thanks to some changes, it's now a great deal.  The first change is a $100 discount from the $400 list price.  The second change is Apple's pending micro dock which will make traditional docking speakers somewhat obsolete.  Finally, the third change is AirPlay integration in Macs and PCs, in the latest verion of iTunes, and Mountain Lion.

Review: SmyleSafe: Web Filtering Software

image

The Internet can be an amazing resource of learning, information and knowledge. Ok, and let’s be honest, of time-wasting cute cat videos and heart-wrenching crawling across the finish line of an Ironman YouTube epics and blogs. But, like life, not everything on the Internet is cool, safe or appropriate for kids. Some of it is actually dangerous and harmful to their safety and well-being.  Since it’s nearly impossible to block kids from going online these days, what can you do to make sure that they are safe and you can monitor (hey, you are a parent) their activities (to a non-intrusive Moooooom or Daaadddd degree, of course) while they’re on the media phone.

Review: Scosche REALM On-Ear Headphones

image

I have been using Scosches’ new REALM On-Ear Headphones with tap LINE III (model # RH656md) for a few weeks. This model (along with a few others) came out last month and Scosche sent me a review sample to play with. This accessory is packaged and protected very well for shipment. With the headphones, you also receive a carry/protective pouch as well as an instruction booklet.



Review: Flight! by Armor Games

image

It amazes me how many budding engineers there were when I was growing up.  All those skilled kids that could take a piece of paper, shape it into something resembling a plane, and actually manage to fly it!  Personally, I wasn’t one of those kids. Thanks to Armor Games, however, I can be, at least on my iPod Touch.  There have been other games like this on the App Store, but this is the first one I’ve really latched on to.  I imagine it’s some combination of the quirky story, attainable and cool upgrades and the origami swans that give you bonus multipliers.



Gangster Granny for iPhone and iPad

image

Gangster Granny allows you to play as a somewhat strange protagonist when compared with what we are used to from gun running apps. For once we see a grandmother with very few morals as we help her bust out of prison and go on a rampage to try and rob the biggest bank in the city. With gun toting madness bringing Grand Theft Auto into mind, this is sure to be a game you will become addicted to very quickly in the near future.



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.
