Probably have heard me blathering about my Sonos S5 wireless streaming stereo and how awesome it is. Well, what would you say if I told you there is a slick iPhone controller app for it, and now guess what?...There is one for iPad too (which is optimized for iPad's bigger screen)!
I doubt a day has passed that I haven't used my 2G iPod touch (8GB model) to check and respond to e-mail (and/or IM), web surf, play and stream music and video, watch TV, control my blu-ray player and media center PC, play games, explore the universe, learn a language (or try to), and even manage our web servers here at IPLife. The list goes on actually too long for this post, which is only the initial unboxing of a multi-part review on the new 4G. The iPod has proven a powerhouse of mobile capability, and is (IMHO) the premier Apple product of all time, though some would likely argue for the iPad in this category (or the iPhone).
This is one of my favorites for the year (see my mega-review here), and now available in HD for iPad! Stunning graphics in an already superb RTS equals, well...Land Air Sea Warfare HD!
Love to geek out with the astronomy apps, so am looking forward to this one coming to the App Store. Looks like RS brings a lot of the features of both Star Walk and Solar Walk (reviewed here, and here on our blog) to iOS in one app, but has a ton of cool features as well. Read on for more info, and stay tuned for future product announcements!
Earlier this year I reviewed an audio streaming device called the Sonos S5, and loved it so much that I had to buy one (see my review wrap-up here). The only thing I was (only slightly) irritated about was that while the S5 could stream music from my PCs, and from all my on-line services (Pandora, iheartradio, etc.), it didn't include music on my iPod touch. In October, they are introducing a dock that will fix this for both iPhone and iPod users...
Content, images and more from the animated series. Full Press info follows with links, etc. "Mumbai, Thursday, 23rd September 2010: Jump Games, a leading International developer and publisher of entertainment content for mobile devices, today, announced the world wide launch of the Little Krishna app, a highly entertaining app for the iPhone & iPad."
Crosswords are great time-killers, especially when travelling. I have not tried this one out, but Crossword 4X4, developed by a small 2-man team, is available for free in the app store, so go grab it here.
Mophie adds a beefy charger to their juice pack line (see my reserve review here) that will top up your iOS devices faster, and works with the iPad! The new powerstation brings the heat with 2.1 amps of output packed into a 3600 mAh battery, and looks like the big brother to the keychain-sized reserve. Read on for more PR details...
I'm a ListPro user from way back in the day (see my comprehensive Windows Mobile review on our sister blog here). Even posted up some of my own custom lists to the free exchange years ago (an MS VB Script Repository). You want to stay organized and be able to find stuff, ListPro is a good way to do it.
If you are like me, you are always on the lookout for good media tools, and in this case you might win an iPad or iPod.
