image

LG makes a phone called the Envy, but the LG phone that I've always envied is the Decoy.  The LG Decoy has a snap-on Bluetooth earpiece that always goes with the phone.  It's a novel concept that we iPhone users couldn't take advantage of.  Now, there's a headset for that!

Open letter to all iPhone Accessory Manufacturers,

 

Hey Guys. Did you forget about us? The iPhone Moms? According to Greystripe – the leading mobile brand advertising network - 29.5% of iPhone users are moms. How will that number jump once Santa or Hanukah Harry comes around?

iPhone OS 3.1.2 A2DP / AVRCP (stereo Bluetooth) iPhone 3G / 3GS test results

You may well remember that, immediately after the release of OS 3.0 and the 3G S, I’ve published quite a few tests on stereo Bluetooth (A2DP) headphones compatibility with both the iPhone 3G and the 3G S (see THIS for my latest report).

Now that version 3.1.2 is out and I had some time to research how it can be safely jailbroken, I’ve re-run the tests, particularly in order to find out how voice control over Bluetooth works.



Protect Your iPhone!

Screen protectors, cases, and stands prevent damage and protect your investment.

I was home visiting my family and was pleased to see that my cousin was given a brand new iPhone 3GS as a graduation gift. However, I was less than pleased to see that she had given no thought to protecting her new phone. The iPhone is a pretty sturdy device, but it’s not indestructible. I made sure she purchased two absolutely necessary accessories: a screen protector and a case.

iPhone 3GS: A Killer of "Killer Devices!"

Replaces camera, camcorder, GPS and radio!

iPhone3Gs4ViewsIn the two years since the introduction of the iPhone, a number of “iPhone killers” have been released. None of these smartphones have been able to stop, or even slow down, the iPhone’s momentum. With the release of the iPhone 3GS and OS 3.0, the iPhone has become a more powerful and feature-rich device. So much so, that it is moving beyond the “smartphone” niche and becoming more of a phone/pocket computer combo.

Mud MosqueWe’re Empty Nesters, and with the economy caving in and nothing else to do, my wife Gwynne and I decided to backpack through Africa. We couldn’t take much with us, but I did have room for my laptop and iPhone.
