Last month we gave you a first look and review of OnLive Desktop, a free cloud-based solution for accessing Windows 7 -- including Word, Excel and PowerPoint -- that takes advantage of technology used in OnLive’s cloud gaming platform. Now, the company is back with a $4.99 per month sequel offering priority access, Internet Explorer and much more.
iPod accessories have taken a turn for the wireless since the introduction of the iPad, especially since it’s a bit bulky to prop up on a clock radio or speaker dock. The tide has shifted toward AirPlay or Bluetooth-enabled speakers that work with a wider range of smartphones, media players, and tablets. Logitech cuts the cord almost entirely with its $149.99 Logitech Wireless Boombox.
In the market for some new headphones or perhaps a charger or battery backup for your iOS device? It might be worth your time to stop by the Scosche booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show, which kicked off Tuesday in Las Vegas. The company is announcing new offerings in their Listen and Power product lines, but if you can’t make it to Vegas with us, read on for the details.
By this time of the year, traditionally we’d be reporting on a treasure trove of rumors about new iPods, with Apple’s annual fall music event usually arriving in the month of September. That’s not the case now that the iPhone 5 is hogging the spotlight after being bumped from the WWDC lineup back in June -- but there are still some things we’d like to see Cupertino do with the decade-old media players.
The cool cats at Capcom on Thursday announced the release of Street Fighter IV: Volt for iOS. The game adds a much-anticipated WiFi support for "V.S." mode.
The game combines a 2D perspective with additional 3D camera flourishes. A unique four-button ³Visual Pad² control system allows players to execute moves through multiple key combinations and shortcuts making the game accessible to casual players, while still challenging to hardcore fans.
I wanted to buy one of Apple’s beautiful wireless keyboards for my Mac, but then I realized that Apple doesn’t sell a wireless keyboard with a numeric keypad. Do you know if they’re planning on making one?
When we first told you about it this past August, the iControlPad had us pretty excited. Not much has changed since then, other than the fact that handcrafted smartphone gaming peripheral is finally available for sale and is expected to start shipping sometime this month. Before you ask, yes, we've already ordered ours.
More than two months after being yanked from the App Store, the controversial free iDOS app that allows users to run an emulated version of the DOS prompt has resurfaced. The app, which reappeared earlier this morning, has come back missing one key feature, the capability to use the file-sharing tool built into iTunes. In previous versions, this allowed users to add executables such as a a full-blown Windows installer and effectively turning the iPhone and iPad into nearly workable PC emulators.
Per CNET News, developer Chaoji Li has included six shareware games from classic gaming company 3D Realms as well as built a simplified game launcher that will load up any of those titles without the user having to enter commands on the virtual keyboard. And for die-hards who want to use the full real estate of the screen, the app now supports Bluetooth keyboards, though this only works in text-based games according to the documentation.
Ever wish you drove a sentient, intelligent talking car--like KITT in Knight Rider? Unfortunately, we still don’t have that kind of technology readily available, but at least voice-controlled Bluetooth hands-free car kits, like this one from Moshi, help us keep our eyes on the road while we’re driving.
The Zomm was created by a mom on a treadmill who was watching Oprah. She prayed for something to invent, and some higher power inspired her to make a Bluetooth “leash” that beeps extremely loudly if your phone is over 30 feet away. She didn’t stop there, though, adding speakerphone capability, a panic button, and an emergency button that automatically calls 911 like those “help, help, I fell down” necklaces. And no matter how fully featured and well-designed this device is, that Zomm mom should warn you that, like a pet, a Zomm is a lot of responsibility. For every one time the Zomm might save your phone from being misplaced or stolen, there will be hundreds of times you’ll have to return to your desk to grab your Zomm (which fits conveniently on key rings), deactivate something you accidentally activated, or tell the police that there’s no emergency, just a trigger-happy Zomm. Even so, after extensive testing, we can verify that it works as advertised--with several caveats.
