Verizon customers rejoice: The SuperBowl will be available on the iPhone and iPad

image

I love it that sports events are increasingly available via streaming video — and that I no longer need cable service. And now there's one more event that will be available: the SuperBowl. It'll be available on the Internet via the NFL website. But if you want to watch it on your iPhone or iPad, it's only available to Verizon subscribers via the free NFL Mobile app. Read more on Electronista.

Edifier TickTock Dock: Review

image

The Edifier TickTock Dock is a great way to dock and set your alarm on your iPod/iPhone.  It’s a great way to start your day with the retro-styled Tick Tock Dock alarm by Edifier. The Edifier has two full range speakers allow for multi-directional rich sound that can be controlled with ease using your docked iPod/iPhone.  It’s also a simple way to control playlist navigation, FM tuning and volume control. A pivoting iPod/iPhone dock allows users to hide the dock and use the clock.  The



Maybe I was wrong?

There are about a zillion photo apps for the iPhone, or at least it seems that way. When it first came out, I looked at Instagram and thought it was nice, but it didn't really interest me. Since then I've seen many folks use it, including Jack Dorsey. Yesterday, I saw it mentioned as the App of the Year in iTunes. Today, I saw an article about in Wired Magazine (Jan. 2012 Issue). Maybe I was wrong and it's worth another look? In the next few days, I'm going to use it...a lot. I'll get back to you with what I find. How about you? Where do you stand on Instagram? I'm interested to know.



What I played this week - Snow Fight!

image

This week, I really had a blast with Snow Fight, but I was not happy about the game offering up a few appetite-whetting levels, and slapping you with an in-app purchase to continue (not a big fan of in-app purchases)... I put a crowbar in my iTunes wallet and plunked down the fat 99 pennies required to unlock the full 40+ levels remaining (yes, quite the iTunes Scrooge). The first zone of 6 or so levels is gratis, but doubtful anyone will begrudge the additional expense of unlocking the others. Simple fun is priceless after all, and the game does deliver that...



Serious contacts bug for Verizon iPhone 4S users; other bug problems and fixes

image

iPhone Life magazine publisher David Averbach found that his iPhone 4S had a serious bug after updating to the latest version of iOS 5. His phone no longer remembered the names of any of his contacts. A post by Paul Hontz on The Startup Foundry clearly desicribes the issue. Apparently it only affects Verizon iPhone 4S users and only if you update your iOS software over-the-air. According to Hontz, his contacts are still there, but the person's name wouldn't appear if he got a call or text message.



Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.


What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
