I would love to have this iPhone accessory that allows you to unlock your home’s front door from your iPhone. I live in a condo so I have to park in a parking lot and then help my 3 kids into the house while carrying all sorts of things. It would be so nice to just open the door from my phone before I get out of the car. Or of course when friends come over and I don’t want to get up from my xBox game. The device is called Lockitron and costs at least $295. There are different styles of locks so check out their website to see if it will work for you: lockitron.com [Read more...]
It’s always kewl to hear from the developer of Cydia and in this video he explains some reasons why you should jailbreak your iPhone. There are many specific reasons but to me the main reason is to have the freedom to do whatever you want to your iPhone. Apple controls the software and jailbreaking it allows you to have the control. Check out the video and also check out our page titled “Why Jailbreak?” [Read more...]
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Keynote from yesterday’s iPad 2 Event, you will want to check out the video below. It is a recap video of the first year of the iPad and the impact is has had on the medical field, schools, autistic children and just people in general. Be warned, it’s kind of a tear jerker. You can check it out below.
Apple has posted the keynote for the iPad 2 Event. All 71 minutes and 21 seconds is viewable below. So, grab some popcorn and M&M’s (seriously guys, if you haven’t had M&M’s in your popcorn you are missing out), sit back and enjoy the keynote!
Today, Apple announced two new iPad 2 accessories. The first is the Apple Digital AV Adapter. This cable allows iPad 2 the ability to display HDMI out.
“Put your slides, movies, photos, and everything else that fills your iPad 2 screen on an even bigger screen — your HDTV. The Apple Digital AV Adapter mirrors exactly what you see on iPad 2 so that everyone in the room can enjoy it on your widescreen TV, video projection screen, or other HDMI-compatible display… Use the Apple Digital AV Adapter to mirror whatever’s on your iPad 2 screen — apps, presentations, websites, and more — on your HDTV or HDMI-compatible display in up to 1080p HD (movies play at up to 720p).”
It seems the Dev-Team is getting closer to having an untethered jailbreak. When the Dev-Team found the untethered jailbreak they dubbed it the “backup plan.” (It’s a “backup plan” because comex is working on a more extensible one, but this method is also generalizable.) Yesterday Musclenerd tweeted, “… the backup plan for those w/legit access to 4.2b3 IPSW is about ready…again though, better to wait for comex.” He also said that;
“Thanks to comex, redsn0w can now handle much bigger files than ramdisk 25MB limit. Useful for “backup plan” 4.2 untether”
“This latest @comex code also allows retrieval of photos+files stuck behind an unfixable filesystem problem…good stuff!”
Apple has released a new iPad Commercial. The Ad highlights a few characters of the iPad and some of the features included in the iOS 4.2.1 update including; creating, printing, vital, ideas, multi-tasking, facts, figures and amazing. Watch the commercial below.
When I heard that Google had announced that, in the next few days, they will be rolling out the ability to edit Google docs from the mobile browser… I have to admit that my ears perked up. I know this might seem totally old school but I use Google docs for my grocery list (I know! There are a ton of apps in the App Store for grocery lists but I can’t help it… I always go back to Google docs). Anyway, I would LOVE (LOVE, LOVE… did I mention LOVE) to see an easier way edit my Google docs while out and about. Though, after checking out the demo video, I’m not sure if this is going to be the improvement I was looking for. I guess I will have to wait and see what I think about the new feature. Honestly I would just like to see an official Google Docs app in the App Store. Below is more info about the new Edit feature including a demo video (done on a droid!!).
Apple has released a new ad for the iPhone 4. The commercial “Longer” boasts the iPhone 4′s lithium polymer battery which allows you to, “work longer, play longer, laugh longer, listen longer, shoot, edit, share, update, download, read, write and even FaceTime longer.”
Check out the video below.
So, Apple’s big iTunes announcement that we mentioned yesterday was that the Beatles will finally be available on iTunes. If you know anything about the Beatles and their history with Apple… you will understand what a big deal this is. With the news of the Beatles in iTunes, Apple also launched an ad campaign to promote the event. Below are five ads featuring the songs; “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Let It Be,” “Yesterday” and “Here Comes the Sun.” Check out the videos below.
Last week, in Episode 24 of i101 and in this article, we talked about Table Connect, where developers connected an iPhone to a multi-touch surface which then allowed them to control and display the iPhone on the multi-touch surface. They have now released a second demo video that shows them playing Labryinth 2 on the giant 58″ multi-touch screen! Check out the demo video below.
The Washington Post recently released their free app for the iPad. They also released a demo video promoting the app. I finally got a chance to check it out and all I have to say is… that is seriously a lot of iPads! If you haven’t seen the video, you can check it out below. [Read more...]
If you’re looking for a professional, solid way to hang your iPad on the wall, Wallee is a great solution. The list could go on and on for reasons you’d hang your iPad on the wall but this accessory is definitely going to get the job done. It comes with a hard, durable case that locks into a wall mounted “X” that could be installed almost anywhere. The case comes in 5 different colors and the wall mount in 2. You can also buy extra wall mounts for different mounting locations. Wallee’s price is comparable to many iPad cases, $49 for a kit and $10 for additional wall mounts. [Read more...]
For a limited time, Ragdoll Blaster 2 is free for the iPhone and iPod touch. The developers are trying to promote the new version of the app for the iPad ($4.99). This game is really addicting and has 4 1/2 stars in the App Store. It comes with over 150 levels and there is some great creativity in the designing of some of these levels. I definitely recommend downloading this game. [Read more...]
