The AirPlay technology that Apple rolled out with iOS 4.2 is definitely the future, even though it’s quite lacking in its current incarnation. Thanks to an enterprising developer, you can now add iOS to Mac streaming capabilities, without ever having to hack your device.
This seems like a real lifesaver for rogue filmmakers making movies with their tiny Flip cameras. Clint Bradford, an amateur radio operator, created his very own scaled-down teleprompter for his Flip UltraHD, and he's provided the juicy details--and step-by-step instructions--for the rest of the hobbiests out there looking for this.
The project requires a Dynex model video bracket, a drill, velcro and a little light. The full instructions are available in PDF format at his site and there's even a FlipPrompter blog if you've got any questions about constructing your own.
The age of wonder is just beginning. Each morning, we shove devices into our pockets that, as kids, we could only goggle at on Star Trek. Now we can Google on them, and that’s not even vaguely impressive.

As blizzards and the like bear down on the nation, sometimes traveling can get a little dicey, and it can be easy to lose where you're at.

Sure, the folks at Sling finally have an iPad version of SlingPlayer Mobile waiting in the App Store to gobble up your $29.99, but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten their original iPhone version, which has just hit version 2.0.
The Verizon iPhone may still be a shot in the dark, but according to a new job posting on the Apple website, the company may be looking to put the iPad on the Verizon network. This position will be a full-time job, with a location in Cupertino.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year--that is, until you have to fight your way through 12 months of knots and brave the cold so that Santa knows to stop at your house for some cookies. Of course, it’s just not Christmas without lights, and it’s just not Mac|Life without a few iPhone apps to help you deck your halls and keep everything calm and bright.
It seems like only last week that an official Google Latitude app landed in the App Store (at least in Japan), and then vanished just as quickly as it came. No one knows for sure why, but the good news is that the app is back and ready for your downloading pleasure.
