Like the times, music keeps a-changin’. These days, it’s more often enjoyed on the go from your iDevice, rather than by dusting off a CD or (gasp) record. That’s part of why Apple’s AirPlay feature, which lets you beam tunes from iDevices to compatible speakers, gets us so excited…but there’s actually a better option, if you can afford it. Sonos’ line of wireless music players can send your tunes on tour all over the house, and they offer more power and flexibility.
Ahh, there’s nothing quite like a relaxing daytime drive. The idylls of the open road, the quiet hum of tires meeting road, the feeling of traveling through open air. Conversely, there’s a reason you shouldn’t climb into the driver’s seat while intoxicated -- it can make for one hell of an unwieldy and dangerous ride.
Macs are a finicky beast. Unlike most desktop PCs, taking them apart can't be done with any old tools. But, like any other PC, once you get a Mac apart, it's pretty easy to service yourself. Well, maybe not always easy (we're looking at you, iMac), but doable.
These 21 tools cover all the basics you need to take apart any old computer, as well as the Mac specific tools you need for Apple's laptops, desktops, and even the iPad. And best of all, with a little Googling, they're pretty cheap, so save your hard earned bucks and trips to the Genius Bar by getting a hold of these tools and fixing your own Macs!
Here we are, one week before Apple is set to wow us with whatever they've got behind the curtains, so if you thought the hot news stories this week weren't going to skew toward being about next Tuesday and what we might gain -- and what we might lose -- well, you're in the wrong place.
Bam! Pow! Regardless of whether or not you’ve seen the Batman television series from the '60s, you’re probably familiar with the pop-cultural trope of using visual onomatopoeia to induce an appropriately “comic book-y” feel to any given medium. And if you’ve ever felt the urge to create your own homage to camp violence or schlocky melodrama in paneled form, now you can with your iOS device.
Closer and closer we get to the rumored release date of the next generation of iPhones. And, true to form, the rumor mill stories are all starting to get more and more overlapping and similar. October 4th is almost universally agreed as the Go-Date and things are starting to gear toward a two model release. Well, then, what else is going down?
Going somewhere neat this weekend? Or are you one of those people who seized the off season opportunity and purchased plane tickets for a vacation in the fall? You should use these free apps to check in to the places you're going and find new places to discover.
Gameloft’s slick-looking real-time strategy game Starfront: Collision sure was a hit in the iOS App Store -- the majority of user reviews are for the full five stars. But when we played the Mac App Store port, it was full of bugs and hampered by a weak AI, though the solid multiplayer mode redeems it at least a little.
They say the best camera is the one you always carry. For most of us, that camera is the iPhone. Now, no one's saying an iPhone will take better pictures than a DSLR, but it does make for an awfully decent point and shoot, and has a ton of options (nay, apps!) for instantly sharing your photos. These accessories will help you make the photos and videos you take with your iPhone even better, and help close the gap between your iPhone and your other cameras.
