Flash comes to jailbroken iPad thanks to Frash

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on July 5th, 2010

I am sure that there are lots of people out there who are like me and wish their iPad would support Flash video. Steve hates Flash that the chances of that happening officially are nil.

A guy has created a new hack for jailbroken iPads that ports Flash from Android to the iPad. The port works well and allows Flash games and content to run on the iPad using a compatibility layer.

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 24th, 2010

Mophie’s juice pack air external case added some battery life to the iPhone, but it also makes your iPhone chubby. Now Mophie is introducing a line of external juice packs that pop into your device using a retractable dock connector.

The smallest will be the $40 1,000mAh juice pack reserve, then the $60 1,500mAh boost. Both are compatible with the iPod and iPhone and also offer “super-bright” LED flashlights. Lastly there’s the juice pack power station, which hasn’t been given a price or mAh rating, but will be compatible with the iPad.

Apple ships 1.2 million iPads monthly, needs Samsung’s help

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on June 20th, 2010

The iPad is a blazing success. You would think that Apple would have expected massive sales and would have been more ready for it. iPad shipments are at 1.2 million each month, which is a half a million more than at launch.

Projections have sales reaching 2.5 million shipments monthly before the year is over. So Apple has had to call on Samsung to produce additional displays for the device, which means Samsung will join LG in supplying displays for the iPad.

iPad Dummy is an iPad for dummies

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2010

Want to fool your friends? Hey check out my new iPad. Sucker! It’s a fake. Anyway, the iPad is sold out and backordered almost everywhere, so you can get this fake version and pretend that you have a real one.

The iPad Dummy looks just like the iPad, but it’s made completely of plastic, instead of aluminum and glass. Heck you can use it as a cool serving tray if you want. Or a decoy, so thieves steal the fake and not the real one.

The iMousePad looks like an Apple iPad

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2010

Mouse pads don’t have to be boring. This one takes its inspiration from the Apple iPad and is called the iMousePad. The iMousePad is designed to look like an Apple iPad. Sadly it’s just a concept created by the guys over at the DarkDesingGroup.

But if it was real, it would sell like hot cakes as every Apple fan would have to have one. Looks like it would also make a good prank since it looks like a real iPad from far away.

iPhone 4 to Double iPad’s RAM With 512MB

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on June 17th, 2010

Apple never really wants to tell us how much RAM is in their devices, but MacRumors is now reporting that the iPhone 4 will have 512MB of RAM. That’s twice what the 3GS and the iPad have and is more on par with it’s competitors like the Evo 4G. That’s good news for everybody.

The iPhone 4 will also have the same processor as the iPad, so if this is true it will also have twice as much memory. Developers will be able to keep more data cached and manage graphics changes more effectively, and for you and me that means browsing without frustrating refresh times and smoother multitasking.

Apple iPad Particle Case with stylus

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on June 17th, 2010

Do you like scribbling on your iPad but find your fingers too clumsy? Fingers aren’t exactly a good instrument for art. The Pogo sketch stylus might offer some help, along with the Particle case from Ten One Design. It allows you to keep your stylus close with a handy holder built into the iPad case itself, which looks stylish.

The Pogo Sketch stylus has been specially designed for the iPad and turns your iPad in to a handy writing notebook and sketch pad. The Apple iPad Particle Case is just $34.95.

Parrot AR.Drone gets launch date and price

Posted in Parrot by Shane McGlaun on June 16th, 2010

Parrot showed off its AR.Drone quad copter at CES for the first time and we were immediately enamored with the flying machine. The AR.Drone has turned up at E3 with the details we have all been waiting for.

The AR.Drone will ship in September for under $300. The copter lets players pilot using augmented reality using the iPod touch, iPhone, or the iPad. The copter has four propellers and a front facing camera that streams what the copter is seeing to the device controlling it.

TILT iPad case

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2010

You need a case to protect that shiny new iPad of yours. And Hard Graft has a new TILT iPad case. The TILT case is made from 100% wool felt and provides a lightweight yet flexible case that can be turned back on its self to create a stand for tilting your iPad.

It shouldn’t add much weight to your iPad at all. Stretchy bands hold your iPad in place with two small ones over each corner and a larger band keeping the main flap in place during transport. Hopefully it is good at keeping your device secure that way.

iPad Cardboard Arcade cabinet

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on June 11th, 2010

In April we showed you an April fool’s iPad Arcade console. But now it’s real. This is a cardboard iPad arcade console created by Hideyoshi Moriya. It’s made of cardboard and has two arcade buttons and a joystick.

To connect the controller to the iPad an Arduino board sits inside the cabinet. It looks like the controllers respond nicely and can handle the iPad games pretty well. Now you just need some art on that cabinet.

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on June 10th, 2010

Now you can use a microscope with your iPad. Scalar Corp has developed the AirMicro model A1, a microscope capable of connecting to the iPhone/iPad via a wireless LAN. It’s powered by three AA batteries. It’s a portable microscope with a 50x lens, so you can zoom in and out of the images which will be shown on the iPad or iPhone.

It can be used with replaceable lens units with magnification ratios ranging from 50x to 200x and can shoot QVGA videos at 15fps with its 5-megapixel CMOS sensor. It should hit North America in mid-June and the Japanese market by the end of June.

Mac classic makes a good dock for the ipad

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on June 10th, 2010

This is a cool mod with a retro twist. A Japanese modder took an old Macintosh classic and turned it into an awesome iPad docking station. It’s a simple idea that is executed perfectly.

The iPad screen fits nicely inside the old monitor frame of the Mac Classic and just like that you have the best of the old and new. We love this kind of creativity. Awesome job.

Hulu may be expanding to the Xbox 360 and iPad

Posted in Hulu by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2010

Previous reports said that a paid subscription version of Hulu would be hitting the Xbox 360 at E3, but now we are hearing that Microsoft’s popular gaming console might not be the only device to get a Hulu subscription service.

Apple’s iPad may be supported as well. So you could be seeing programs from companies like Fox, NBC, Universal and Disney on their way to the Xbox 360 and iPad. Rumor is that this service will be launched in the next month or two.
