Do You Recycle?

image

I believe in recycling and I try to recycle and/or reuse wherever and whenever possible. It's an action and responsibility to help the planet that I have control over, and to be honest, it's not all that difficult to do. Sometimes there are items that I know need to be recycled but I have no idea where to bring them to. I found a Free app that I am trying out that helps. It's called My Recycle List. It's designed for the smaller screen but I am using it on my iPad.

 

Basically, you choose your item that you want to recycle and it will tell you where you can bring it that is near you.



Review: iChair iPad Case & Stand

image

Just last month, a company called iChair launched a case series they call the iChair. The iChair is a multipurpose slider case which also has some extras. They created one for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The folks at iChair sent me the iPad case to evaluate. The first thing that came to my mind when I opened the package was an Incase Slider hooked up with a silicone case. But it’s actually much more than that which I will present below.

I found a video they created in their media kit of an unboxing.



Powis iCase: New Leather edition

image

Back at the end of November, I reviewed the Powis iCase. You can find that review at the link below. Recently, they launched a new leather design. I am not going to re-review the case, as the design and functionality itself did not change. But I did want to mention two things about it.

The leather design comes in two grades. Powis offers a Premium Leather version for $79.99 and a Lightly Textured one for $59.99. The one in my pictures is Tan Pebble. The leather is tight to the cover and looks nice.



Overdrive

Not too long ago, Jim Karpen blogged about the Overdrive Media Console. You can find that at the below link. http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/5/overdrive-media-console-free-app-lets-you-check-out-ebooks-and-audio-books-your-library I downloaded it myself and have been exploring some of my libraries' offerings when I have time here and there. I'm still trying to figure out general navigation and am finding it a little difficult. I will say though that I have not dedicated a large amount of time to it which is part of my problem. In my local newspaper today, there was an article from the Associated Press. I thought this would also be of interest. http://www.berkshireeagle.com/ci_17170928?IADID=Search-www.berkshireeagle.com-www.berkshireeagle.com


Review: Speck PixelSkin iPad Case

image

 

 

This is my first Speck iPad case review. I’m very excited as I will also have a few others in the upcoming weeks to share with you also. The PixelSkin was named based on its design of it’s 5DPI pixel likeness. It’s a silicone case that is pretty thick. I have used silicone cases on my devices in the past and some were made very thin and felt like they could rip if you handled it wrong. Not the case here.

In Part 1 of this review, I provided the unboxing and general case pictures and features. The link for that is here:

This is the fourth keyboard case I have used in the last few months. Two of the folio style cases were from Kensington and Handstands. I think the Kensington Folio is the one that I can really compare the Sena Folio to.

For all you Robocop fans, here is an app that was recently released.

Per the press release, the “RoboCop App lets fans and users watch their favorite RoboCop movie scenes on demand, gain access to the best one-liners and audio clips, and impersonate the infamous action hero through a brand new “RoboHead” mode.  For the first time ever, fans themselves can become RoboCop and watch as he mouths their own words.”

Microsoft OneNote for iOS

I spotted this over at Macrumors today. Microsoft released a version of OneNote for iOS today. It’s apparently only available through the US iTunes store and it’s free for a limited time. I just downloaded it while it’s free so I could have it for future use.



Review: Sena Keyboard Folio (Part 1 of 2)

image

When you think of Sena, you probably think of great leather cases, that’s at least what I think anyway. During my previous pocket pc days, I have owned and used their cases and really enjoyed it. Recently, they just started shipping their new Keyboard Folio for iPad case and I was very lucky to be able to try it out (Thank You Sena). This post is more of an unboxing with some of the keyboards specs and features below. I just opened it today. Over the next several days, I will be giving this a workout and will report back with my review in part 2.

I received the case which was in a gift type box.
