As the home landline slowly disappears from many households, some of us pine for the days when you could end a call by slamming down the handset. Ever try to hang up angry on the iPhone? Tapping the End Call button really doesn't convey the same emotions.
We checked out the iFusion iPhone dock and got to relive the glory days of angry conversations.
This new projector from Optoma takes a different approach at iPhone and iPod projectors by integrating a dock into it. The Neo-i sound dock has a built-in 50 ANSI lumen DLP projector that offers WVGA resolution in 16:9 format. The dock has several ports on it, including VGA, HDMI, and audio in and out. You can also hook up an external battery pack to it and run it that way if you're, say, aching for a backyard projector party. Check out the video for a quick look.
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.
We know--that iPad is all that's kept you from going crazy at work, right? It keeps you entertained at work and puts a little kick in your daily grind. In this week's Best Case Scenario, we reviewed three cases that would go over well at work, plus a hand strap that you could use to show off the iPad during presentations, or pretend to make it fly.
This week's Best Case Scenario explores two very utilitarian iPad bags, including one that’s virtually theft proof. Plus, Booq has a brand new iPad Folio case that's as rugged as it is cool looking, and ColorWare released a kitschy handle grip for the iPad that's a whopping three Benjamins.
All Hail the iPad! And why not? After all, Cupertino's slick little device has been an unparalleled hit, and not just for Apple. Remember DVD players and how quickly those ended up in every home? Yeah, well the iPad is crushing the DVD player in adoption rates. Yeah, you read that right, and you're gonna keep on reading, because this is In Case You Missed It, kids, and we mean business.
It's that time again! Time to win some wonderful prizes from your favorite editors at Mac|Life! This time around, we're giving away three Incipio cases for the iPod touch 4G, including the Edge case, the Hive Gaming Case and a bright pink and neon Dotties set.
Contest is finished! Hooray to Phil for winning this week's Win! Though we chose the winners at random this time around, Phil named the pumpkin "Boo". Stay tuned to the site for more great ways to win prizes!
Attention hipsters: Your iOS device case has arrived! Moleskine--purveyors of fine paper products enjoyed around the world--has made yet another decidedly device-centric attempt to increase their stranglehold on the hearts and minds of the scribbling public. A few months ago, we bore witness to the company's first foray into the tech world with what they've opted to call an analog-digital hybrid: A Kindle cover that, in addition to providing some stylish protection to Amazon's one-trick pony e-book reader, also offers Moleskine aficionados the ability to keep the company's signature creamy off-white paper close at hand by building a notepad right into the case's cover. As of this morning, Apple device users have also been extended the ability to add a bit of class to their iPhone 3G/3GS as Moleskine has announced the addition of cases for your cherished iOS devices to their covet-worthy Folio Digital product line.
