New Cool iPig delivers superb sound!

image

At CES this year, I got the grand tour of Speakal's latest sound docks. Most were not available at that time for review, but I finally was able to get a new "Cool iPig" to try out. The CiP is a small speaker dock (obviously done up in a pig motif) that includes motion-sensing technology. For a small speaker system, the unit pumps out good quality sound, and includes a rechargable battery. You need to be careful with your motions however, lest you inadvertedly blast your eardrums by moving too near the volume up control.

Monster Trouble Review

image

Monster Trouble is 3D Tower Defense fun, and make no mistake, this game will suck you into endless hours of grinding gameplay. If you like TD games already, and looking for one with a medieval theme, high-quality rendering and effects, and a bit of campy humor, then this is definitely your game.



What I Played this Week, and More News!

image

Haven't done this in awhile, so maybe I should call this "What I played this quarter!". I had to post up on JetCar Stunts though, since it's the latest game I can't stop playing (it's not a new title--released in 2009). Crazy addictive time killer is what it should be called!. Featured in iTunes essential games, you can grab it here at $1.99. Expansion course packs also available. The concept is to race through 3D high-flying aerial stunt courses with your rocket powered jet car (who wouldn't want one of those)... More app news follows...

 



Eye-Fi Direct Mode Release!

You can get the gory details from the attached press release or watch the video, but suffice to say you will be able to easily transfer photos from your camera to your iPad or iPhone now directly (without a separate AP, see my Eye-Fi Connect X2 review here). Original Eye-Fi owners can upgrade their card's firmware free to get Direct Mode as well... read on for the full scoop on Direct Mode and the newly released Mobile X2 card...



Home Design 3D for iOS - plan your next crib!

image

Home Design 3D by Livecad, might be amongst the coolest (and useful) apps for iOS I have found (if only it had Visio integration). The app works well in too many ways to count. If you are planning on redecorating, redesigning a part of your home/apartment, or want to plan your ultimate dream pad, you will want to grab this app.



Ri - New remote for iOS devices available!

If you are looking for a small remote to manage the growing number of devices in your home entertainment center, check out the Ri. Nearly as small as a quarter, the Ri should work with most hardware, and without the nuisance of fussing with IR codes. Includes a free control app...
