Moving into a dorm room after a lifetime spent in private residences can be a rude awakening. Your workspace is sure to be minimal, so you’ll need to choose your tech wisely and leave large, unnecessary items behind. We’re here to help -- and since getting a college education can be brutally expensive, we’ve taken the liberty of building a perfect Apple-centric dorm room setup for less than $1,000.
Every other week, I review a handful of different cases for your iOS and Mac devices. But is there anything that I haven't covered that you'd like to see in Best Case Scenario? Leave a comment after the cut and let me know what, and if, you've been looking forward to seeing a review of an interesting looking case from a particular brand.
In this week's Best Case Scenario, I'm just picking from the pile of the leftovers. With the great lot of iOS device users impatiently awaiting the next big (or small? Pre-paid?) iPhone, it's slim pickings here in the land of case reviewing. But this week, we've got iPad 2 cases that feature Andy Warhol's famed banana, green pillowy leather and the toughness of a thousand Rhino skills. Read on! Or, sail on, because I like nautical imagery (and themed pashminas!).
Amazon pulled an App Store end-around today and quietly launched the Kindle Cloud Reader, a web based version of the Kindle app.
The web app supports Safari or Chrome browsers, as well as Safari on iOS 4+, and is specifically "optimized for iPad." Any book shopping you do on the web app on your iPad, though, bypasses the App Store and goes straight to Amazon's Kindle Store for Tablets.
Few games quite bring back that extra special feeling of childhood quite like Skee-Ball. The crashing roll of the balls after you drop your quarter, the swing, the drop in the rings. We spent a good deal of our childhood and our allowance pitching ball after ball up the ol' incline, but we rarely get a chance these days.
We're happy to say, all that has changed if only in a virtual sense.
As if the iPad doesn’t have enough choices for streaming movies and television shows direct to you, VUDU has announced that the company is now offering its library to tablet users -- but don’t go looking for it in the App Store, because the service is only available in your browser for now.
Accumulated too many Macs or iOS devices over the years and looking to unload them? While eBay is one way to go, Apple would prefer you send it to their own recycling program, which now allows you trade in those old products in exchange for an Apple Gift Card -- assuming it’s worth anything, that is.
The busy bees at Boxee have unleashed a whole swarm of goodies today: their first iPad app, a firmware update for its set-top box, and new Boxee Media Manager software.
The Boxee goal is a scenario that allows users to bookmark some video content on a computer away from home, begin watching it on the train home using an iPad 3G, and then finishing it up on the couch via the Boxee box.
Father Paolo Padrini. He is the Italian priest who developed an app called iBrevary that puts morning prayer, evening prayer and night prayers on the iPhone. It is the first iPhone app sanctioned by the Vatican.
Padrini works with the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, and was recently interviewed about upcoming app plans as well as the philosophy behind putting religious apps in iTunes.
As we reported last week, Kairosoft, the makers of some of the most deviously addictive simulation games on iOS, have released their latest epic. It's called Mega Mall Story and we can't wait to get our hands on it.
