That the iPhone uses more bandwidth should seem obvious to most iPhone users; we
chose this phone because it makes Internet connectivity so easy. The real question is, how is, which of your most-used apps are responsible for the clogging of AT&T's network.
Back in the day, people listened to the radio all the time, and
families would gather ’round it in the evenings, and it was all a very
big deal--um, so we’re told. Today it’s easy to look at radio as a last
resort, the old standby when you forget your iPod or there’s no
computer around for firing up Pandora. Fans of radio will appreciate
the Aluratek WiFi Internet Radio, Home Theater Edition, aka the
AIREC01F (another tech product whose name just rolls off the tongue).
Ultimate Ears has been making in-ear monitors for professional
musicians for nearly 15 years. The company was founded by Alex Van
Halen and Jerry Harvey, a sound engineer for the band--a couple of dudes
who know what they’re talking about when it comes to audio. Musicians
rely on UE’s monitors during performances, and now you can bring that
pro-level tech home in the form of earbuds. Even if you’re just
listening to “Panama” while you’re walking the dog, rather than
pounding it out on the skins in a packed arena, Ultimate Ears can make
your iPod rock that much harder.
iPods are great, and we’re rarely without one. But sometimes a pair of
earbuds just isn’t enough--especially when you want some tunes for a
backyard BBQ or basement dance party, or perhaps your favorite
Lemonheads record just doesn’t sound right unless you crank it up.
Either way, Ion Audio’s Tailgater can help you rock with friends,
indoors or out.
The wide open road. The windows down on a warm spring day. The wind
whips through your car and tosses your hair about. The lo-fi tunes
strain to be heard from your car speakers because you’re using a
tape-deck adapter to listen to your iPhone or iPod. If you’re looking
to upgrade your system from its roots in the 1990s, Sony’s CDX-GT730UI
Xplod GT Series CD Receiver (longest name ever) is a low-cost solution
for getting your car to play nice with your iPod or iPhone.
Just as the rumors of Cupertino's tablet device have cooled into an
almost conventional wisdom, something comes along to goose the story --
although from a different direction than usual. Like their original
idea for a Microsoft store (lifted rather blatantly
from Apple stores), the Redmond software giant has allegedly decided to
get into the
In the seminal 1989 Batman film directed by Tim Burton, the
Joker, played to smarmy perfection by Jack Nicholson, grouses about the
well-equipped Caped Crusader, “Where does he get those wonderful toys?”
Ol’ Joker was talking about the batarang or something, but in this
game, the answer is clear: The toys are LEGO. The vehicles are LEGO.
The environments are LEGO. Even the characters are LEGO.
Judging by our desk, you’d never guess that we try to be highly
organized. And we’ve tried everything, from David Allen’s nerd-famous
Getting Things Done (GTD) dogma, to complex Mac apps, endless paper
notebooks, and iCal’s built in to-do features. We have yet to find the
perfect system for managing not only our work tasks, but also all the
other stuff we have to do in the course of our daily life. But Remember
The Milk, a Web service also accessible via iPhone, is helping us
become more organized than ever.
