Here’s the second part of the install of the iPad into the dash of a car. (Read part 1 here) They had some problems with getting a digital source from the iPad so they had to settle with an analog source. Still looks awesome! They also got the iPhone to work with the stock bluetooth through the aftermarket audio.
Now don’t get too excited here, this is just a jailbreak for a beta firmware. It also only has a 58% success restore rate. This isn’t technically even a jailbreak to the 4.0 firmware but an controlled upgrade to 4.0 from a 3.x firmware. But, here it is in video format:
MuscleNerd has posted a video on YouTube of veency running on iPhone firmware 4.0. veency is an VNC app which lets you see and control you’re iPhone from a computer. The video also shows the cydia icon, new dock, new calculator button and the new folders feature.
Something you won’t find in stock 4.0…a VNC server :) Questions: http://twitter.com/musclenerd & http://blog.iphone-dev.org. PS: 4.0 BETAS are BUGGY! Don’t bother trying them if you’re not developing apps for them!
I had never seen this show before but a friend of mine sent me a link to the show because it was about Phil, a dad in one of the families in the show, who wanted an iPad for his birthday. Pretty good show, worth the watch.
Here’s a link to the app that was featured at the end called “Happy birthday cake“. It’s a birthday cake you can write the person’s name on. It seemed like it blew out the candles when he blew on it. It doesn’t say anything about that feature in the app description. It’s actually an iPhone app that has been expanded…
This iPhone Commercial – Shopper – shows the use of a few stock applications; Safari, MMS (picture messaging) and Maps. However, it also features one of my favorite applications… RedLaser (try it once and you will be hooked!).
“I know an espresso maker isn’t the most romantic gift but my wife really wanted one. So I did a little research. Asked her sister which color she’d like, and then I did a quick check to see if it was cheaper anywhere else. Turned out the best price was around the corner. I’m a much smarter and faster shopper with my iPhone”
“I was out the other night and this great song came on. So I used my iPhone to figure out who the band was. Downloaded their album, right there. And the best part was, my iPhone even told me when they were coming to town. So, all I had to do was buy the tickets. I still don’t know how my iPhone does all that.”
This first video recently became popular mainly because the little girl asks where the app is that takes pictures when she first starts using the new iPad (which the iPad lacks). She has most likely used an iPhone or iPod touch before so she knows what she’s doing. I went looking and found a few more videos of kids testing out the new iPad. Most seem to pick it up pretty quick and they all seem to love the drawing apps. We’ll have to post a video of our kids testing out the new iPad once we pick one up.
This is awesome! I would so do this if I had money laying around, but I don’t. This video is of a car stereo shop named “Sound Man Car Audio” based out of Santa Clarita, CA. They are documenting the install of an iPad into the dash of a Toyota. This video is only the first day of the install, so more will come. They also have some documentation on how to integrate an iPod touch or iPhone into your car audio system.
On The day of the iPad release, we were able to start our planned iPad project. We chose to use the iPad as the only source for the vehicles entertainment system. The dock connector will plug into a cable that runs to a Onkyo ND-S1 which will send the digital signal from the iPad directly into an Audison Bit One. The Bit One will then act as the D/A converter, and will also process the audio signal. The Bit One also has a great controller for adjusting the volume and audio settings. The amplifier we chose is the McIntosh MCC406M. Stay tuned for the rest of the build. You’ll be able to find all the pictures and videos on this page as they become available.
Oh boy, he is at it again… the Will It Blend guy has tried his hand at blending the iPad. I distinctly remember watching aghast as he blended an iPhone two years ago. For those of you sick of all the iPad talk… you might enjoy watching this video. Personally, it made me cringe a little. Especially at the beginning!

This has been a hack that many have been wanting for a long time. Now you can rotate your iPhone and the homescreen will rotate too. This was tested on a 1st Gen iPhone so it’s a little slow but not bad. I recorded a video of the mod using my iPhone 3GS:
Today we decided to visit the Apple store in our area to check out the new iPad. We went in about an hour after they opened and there was still a pretty big line. This is a picture of the line a friend of mine took just a little while before we got there.
Once we got there I asked the staff if I had to stand in line to buy something other than the iPad. She said no and that I could go right in and if I wanted I could look at an iPad. I went in and bought my Airport Extreme and checked out the iPad after I was done. It is very amazing and I can’t wait to get one. I did notice that it was a little heavier than I thought and my arm did get tired after standing and holding it for a while. Still, amazing. Anyway, while I was standing there showing it to my wife I saw the news videographer setting up for a shot inside the store. I told my wife and we tried to act normal. Later, I forgot all about it and someone ended up telling me on Facebook that they saw me on the 6:00 news. I caught a later airing and here’s the video and a screenshot from the few seconds we were famous… [Read more...]
Ok, so I’m jealous, but that’ s ok. Later I will not stand in line for my iPad 3G. We will be going out to our Apple store today to check out the new device. Our mall opened at 7am and the Apple store is opening at 9am. Here are some videos of lines and stores opening across the US.

We recently posted a video of a great demo of an app called “Everyday Looper”. One of our readers commented on the video posting a link to another video with someone using this app to make an awesome recording. What’s even more awesome is the accessory he’s using to record. Check out the video and then we’ll check out the hardware: [Read more...]
