Epson MegaPlex 850HD projector saves the Summer

image
For several years, I've been showing movies on the garage for the neighborhood kids. When the iPad came out, with the optional VGA cable, it enhanced the portability of my setup. I no longer needed to lug a laptop to connect to my projector. But Apple, while they usually do things right, didn't do a great job with their VGA connector dongle. It uses the 30 pin connector but doesn't provide a way to power an iOS device, so you're limited to the battery life of the iPad or iPhone. Apple also offers composite, component, and HDMI connectors, which fixed this, but most projectors are wired for VGA not HDMI and Apple's VGA dongle is easy to keep in your bag.


iWOW-U lives up to its name and breathes new life into your music, headphones and car stereo

image

Before you drop $300 on a fancy celebrity endorsed set of headphones, you might be better served trying the iWOW-U from SRS Labs and your existing headphones. That's what I did, with a $20 pair of Sony headphones and the sound quality was significantly better. The iWOW-U is a 3.5mm extension cord but with a twist. It includes a powered amplifier that enhances the sound quality and does a great job of stereo separation... I was skeptical, but the improvement was immediately noticeable and I am a tough cookie to please.



Dockem advances the state of the art in wall mounts

image
Dockem has a smart set of wall mounts for assorted tablets and smartphones that address some of the deficiencies found in competing mounts. For starters, they accommodate just about any size device, and even with a case or smart cover in the case of the iPad.


By splitting the mount into two parts. They can accommodate devices of different width, in portrait or landscape mode (though you will have to decide which orientation before you finalize affixing your mounts.)


Lastu adhesive covers for the iPhone add beauty that is more than skin deep

image
I love the juxtaposition of hi tech and old school elements, so the combination of a state of the art iPhone and real wood is right up my alley. Lastu offers both oak and walnut adhesive front and backs for the iPhone and can add to the attractiveness of an otherwise 'sterile' iPhone.



Bunny Run Game Review for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch

image

Bunny Run is a free application that allows you to play as a bunny and avoid getting smashed by vehicles. Whether you’re crossing the road or crossing train tracks, you’ll want to be careful and avoid being dinner for scavengers. Bunny Run is an arcade romp that’s sure to keep you entertained when you have some extra downtime.

Bunny Run is a run and dodge type application that promises to take the run and dodge type applications to a whole new level. It can be related to the old school game Frogger. You were constantly in a rush and trying to not get squished by traffic. Well unlike Frogger, Bunny Run has unique dynamics, amazing graphics and endless gameplay to keep you occupied.



Review: Voroflow by Abstratum

image

Someone once I asked me how I pick games to review, and obviously without being able to play them there’s a lot of trust in screen shots and descriptions, whether from the developers themselves or from forums and other such public avenues.  Once I finally get my hands on a game the focus then becomes the fun factor.  However, I also try to focus on games that are unusual in a positive way, because these are the ones that tend to become classics once people stop overlooking them.  Voroflow definitely falls into the “unusual” category, and as a match 3 lover I’m glad the developer was kind enough to bring it to my attention.



Game Review: DEAD TRIGGER

image

 

DEAD TRIGGER, the newest game release from MADFINGER games (makers of the other App Store smash hit, SHADOWGUN) is one of the best First Person Shooters available right now. This game is freakishly scary, and has been a very hard game for me to put down, partly due to its killer graphics, and partly due to its excellent gameplay. The post-apocalyptic environment you find yourself in is desolate with lethal danger around every corner. Abandoned buildings and deserted alleyways will become your tomb, if you are lucky. If not so lucky, well then I reckon you end up like them.

image
In a perfect world, one case would meet all of my needs. Sometimes I want my iPhone clipped to my belt, and other times I want to carry my phone and perhaps a credit card, and often on trips and at trade shows, I want a built in extra battery. The ClickMate system from NUU tries to be the solution.

image

Amazing Kitty from Shiconal is a feel-good feline-themed puzzle matching game that is practically guaranteed to have players addicted from the get-go.

The simple premise of this friendly little matching game is to get two of the bouncy, square-ish kitties that look alike to touch-and to tap them before they lose contact, and meet each stage’s clear-condition goal. Sounds familiar enough, right? Don’t get too ahead of yourself—Amazing Kitty might sound like a typical matching game, but it has plenty of charm all its own.



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.
