JayBird offers iPhone app that provides AVRCP control

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on June 30th, 2010

I mentioned yesterday that JayBird had unveiled a new set of Bluetooth headphones that offer controls for tracks on the headphones. The downside was that those controls won’t work with the iPhone since it doesn’t support that feature.

JayBird has announced that it has a new app called Blutrax that adds that Bluetooth music control feature we all want into the iPhone. The app offers full control for skipping tracks, pause, play and more.

Verizon iPhone coming in January

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on June 29th, 2010

According to Bloomberg, Verizon will begin offering the iPhone in January. That’s according to two unnamed sources who are “familiar with the plans,”. No other details were given. It fits with what we’ve been hearing for the last few months.

No one knows yet if it will be new hardware or just a CDMA iPhone 4. AT&T and Apple’s exclusivity agreement should be running out around January, so that fits. It would also let Verizon show off the deal at CES. I guess we will find out soon.

We’ve heard the rumors about the new Hulu service and now we’ve heard that Hulu Plus, the $10 a month service, will feature entire seasons of shows that are available in limited quantities on the free service, along with other programming not available via Hulu-lite.

iPlunge iphone stand holds up your iPhone, clears tiny drains

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 28th, 2010

Plumbers who own an iPhone will want to take a look at this iPhone accessory. It looks like the plunger you use to clear your toilet. It works just like a plunger too, sticking to the back of your phone and making it appear as if a cartoon character has just drawn his bow and shot it at your phone.

You can stand it in portrait or landscape mode to watch video more comfortably. It will ship in August for $5.99. Hey, is this how Steve wants us to hold our iPhone 4?

You can hold Nokia phones however you want

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on June 28th, 2010

When Steve Jobs addressed the iPhone 4′s antenna issue by telling people they are holding it wrong, Nokia seized the opportunity over at its official blog, where they tell readers that “whether you’re left-handed or right-handed, there’s no shortage of ways to hold your phone.”

And that’s how it should be with any gadget. To design a product like crap and then tell people they are holding it wrong is just lame. Good one Nokia. And for the record, I will hold any phone any way I like and it better still work.

Prompt-It iPhone teleprompter

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on June 27th, 2010

Is there anything that the iPhone can’t do? The latest odd use for the iPhone is to use it as a teleprompter. The Prompt-it kit will let you set up your iPhone as a mini-teleprompter, so you can read your lines, while still looking at the camera. Just like a news anchor.

Apparently it’s good for reading a speech when you’re on your laptop’s webcam, but if you are on your laptop, why not just put the lines on your laptop’s screen? It’s pretty neat, but not really practical.

White iPhones are harder to make than black

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

If you are waiting for a white iPhone 4, you may have quite a wait. Apple had announced the iPhone 4 in your choice of black or white. Then suddenly there was no availability of the white model. Now, Apple says you have to wait until late July.

So what gives? Apple says: “White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have proven more challenging to manufacture than expected, and as a result they will not be available until the second half of July. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.”

Need to catch a criminal? There’s an app for that

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on June 16th, 2010

You can’t get a straight answer from a criminal. They are criminals after all. So cops in Brockton Massachusetts are using specially equipped iPhones to make the job easier. Cops could use the break.

The officer uses the iPhone to take a picture of the suspect, which then connects to the department’s database for a biometric comparison. If the suspect has been arrested before, the officer can get his complete file, including info on prior arrests and convictions.

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.

Facebook CEO slams the iPhone

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2010

I wonder what Steve Jobs thinks when he reads what the CEO of Facebook has to say about the iPhone. It seems that Mark Zuckerberg isn’t a fan of the iPhone as he has had some bad experiences using it. Steve probably doesn’t care since he’s too busy bathing in money.

In a recent Facebook post, he said “This week I got an iPhone. This weekend I got four chargers so I can keep it charged everywhere I go and a land line so I can actually make phone calls”. But I wonder why he had to actually get an iPhone to figure these things out.

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on June 10th, 2010

Philips has officially launched their new line of Fidelio iPhone/iPod Docks.

The campaign is called “Obsessed with Sound” and the three people involved are Steven Lillywhite, Geoff Foster, and Benjamin Herman. The campaign has the trio taking consumers talking up their reasons why they live and love sound, and how they expect nothing then perfection.

Each one has an obvious Apple style. Each has a beautiful design and quality craftsmanship that will please Apple fans.

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.
