The Police Siren App is Loud!

The Police Siren App is Loud!
Just think of the possibilities of having one’s own portable police siren and flashing strobe light. Well the “Police Siren” App is not amongst the Top 25 Free Downloads in the App Store for nothing. For instance, if a heavy-footed inconsiderate oaf in a car cuts someone off and nearly causes an accident, then the Read more…

Google Chrome Vs Safari

Google Chrome Vs Safari
There’s an interesting article over at Business Insider, about how Chrome is kicking Safari’s butt currently, and how that will lead to the downfall of Apple as a company. Maybe I should just pull out a quote at this point so you get the idea. Last time, the software platform that killed Apple was Microsoft’s Windows. This Read more…

Keeping it Simple: Wooden iPad Stands

Keeping it Simple: Wooden iPad Stands
Quick story. My father is a woodworker by hobby. He’s spent most of his life building cabinets, furniture and other home projects, all with his own two hands. Many years ago, he made a block of wood for my mother. It’s heavy enough to hold a page down, but also has a decorative detail in Read more…

The Quest For The Perfect iPad Setup

The Quest For The Perfect iPad Setup
I’m way too anal. Ever since I purchased my iPad, I’ve been trying to figure out the perfect setup for the device. I figure that I need a stand for the desk, a hard case or wrap to prevent against scratches, and a bag for carrying it around town. Problem is, most of these things Read more…

LogMeIn Ignition for the iPad

The Apple Remote

The Apple Remote
Oh, the Apple Remote. I remember when I first bought my white MacBook back in 2007 – my introduction to the Mac scene – and found the little white remote to control Front Row. I had no idea what it did at first, and once I did finally determine its use, I promptly threw it Read more…

28 Days, 1 Million iPads

28 Days, 1 Million iPads
Well that was quick. Just 28 days from its introduction, Apple has announced that they sold the millionth iPad this past Friday, on 3G launch day. I think the most telling quote of this whole situation comes from Steve himself: “One million iPads in 28 days—that’s less than half of the 74 days it took Read more…

Lala Shuts Down - What's This Mean for Apple?
I’ve never listened to lala.com, but I know people who do. At the end of this month, they’re going to have to find another option for their streaming music needs. That’s because lala is closing up shop come May 31st. You might remember that back in March, Apple bought lala and no one knew what Read more…

iPad and the Car

I’ve written about using the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in the car before, but this latest one takes the cake. It’s an in-dash kit designed to replace the factory car stereo with an iPad. It’s made by the fine people at Scosche, who are known for not only making car stereo components, but also Read more…
