The most flexible powerhouse of an adapter base I have used to date, the award-winning IDAPT i4 universal desktop charger will keep your gadgets powered up, and looks good doing it.

Analogies are comparisons that point out relationships between two or more different things. For example: cat : kitten as dog : puppy. By providing your child with practice in correctly identifying analogies, you’ll not only help him improve his IQ and placement test scores, but you'll also improve his analytical thinking, problem solving, perception, spatial skills, memory and creativity.



Stay classy, iPhone Life readers... with a case from Proporta!

image

I'm a classy guy, trust me.  Okay, at least I try to be.  And my latest case for the iPhone 4 helps!  It's from Proporta and it's made out of luxurious leather with, get this, a leather-encased aluminum cover.  The aluminum protects the iPhone screen, but the leather lining makes it soft to the touch.  It truly is "like butter."

image

There are tons of great charging gadgets out there (see my brief RichardSolo review here and a more in-depth one by Louis here), but the Mophie juice pack line of products for iPhone/iPod give a lot of charging bang for the buck. If you are interested in keeping your iPhone or iPod topped up with smart battery technology, then you might want to give the reserve a try.



Wax on Wax off the Back Glass

image

The back cover of the iPhone 4 is glass, making it beautiful yet fragile. While there is extra shine there is also the possibility of breaking it. Because of this, we have noticed and increased number of people doing what they can to maintain the beauty aspect of the back glass. One such person recently asked about replacing his back glass, which we did.



Stop taking pictures and start taking works of art with CanvasPop!

If Yogi Berra were to assess today's use of cameras he might say: "Nobody takes photographs anymore... they're too busy taking pictures."  If you're like me, you have thousands of digital pictures stored on hard drives and online galleries but only print a tiny fraction of them.  Once in a while we'll find "a keeper" and enlarge it to 11"x14" and frame it, but by and large, photos stay on the computer and maybe a digital photo frame.



iStart Spanish Review

image

As a dabbler of a few languages, I admit that I am not a natural learner. My English is not that good, and it's my native tongue! Anyhoo, I took Spanish in high school, but never could quite get the hang of the tricky rolling r sounds, the masculine and feminine forms, etc. With iStart Spanish on my iPod, I may finally be able to make some progress, and understand some of my wife's favorite TV shows.



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..."
