I remember when I bought the first iPad somewhere in April 2010 just after it came out first in the USA. I bought two of them from a Nato army guy who could import them via the military shipped by their internal mail service. That was 3 months before the gadget was sold in most EU countries, where it came out in the summer. Then accessory makers didn’t have many products out yet because it was only presented to the press in January that year. A friend of mine who is handy and at that time building his own plane, had the idea to create a aluminum Dock for the iPad one, so we could browse and type faster on it. We even had it laser cut the Apple Logo but quickly realized this was not done because of legal issues.
Anyway now that the Apple WATCH is announced so far ahead of the real product launch, the first cool accessories are already popping up left and right. One of them is this Bandstand, I think it looks kind of industrial cool. You can order it now and have it in the summer shipped to you, that is not too far away.
Art buff? You might not want to miss this. Muse is a new app that lets you browse artworks from museums, blogs and auction houses from all over the world. You do not need to leave your apartment to enjoy some of the best paintings and sculptures, both old and new. All of the artworks are also accompanied by a neat description that allows you to learn more about it. If you have a favorite genre or artist, you can also explore in depth in the “Artists” or “Browse” sections.
When you see an artwork you like, you can save it to your own gallery. If you keep doing that, soon enough you will have a mobile gallery curated all by yourself.
Everybody is thrilled about the new Apple WATCH, except for its battery life. This is in normal daily situations not a big issue, because you put your watch anyway on the night table before going to sleep. In situations where you stay longer away on the road or nature where there is no normal wall plug around it can come in handy to have extra charge cycles to your disposal. Nomad has designed the NomadPod, which does exactly that.
The NomadPod has also 2 USB ports to charge other devices, and one is the brand new USB-C type, which is also the new kid on the block for the funky three colors Macbook. It ships in two colors and is available for $59.95 in preorder.
The innovative iLX-007 In-Dash System with Apple CarPlay brings you a smarter way to use your iPhone on the road. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, and listen to music and access messages with just a word or a touch. When Apple CarPlay is used on the iLX-007, users can control Apple CarPlay from the 7-inch screen or activate Siri for reduced distraction. Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5/6 series.
When the iPhone 1—aka Jesus phone—first came out in July 2007, there were only a few limited applications that could be used. No Software Development Kit (SDK) was available to the public, it was only for the internal developers at Apple with closed and semi undocumented Application Program Interfaces (APIs). Hey, the AppStore didn’t even exist at this time. It only took the community eleven days after the iPhone’s release, to come with the first jailbreak. Even eight months before the first iPhone OS 1.x SDK came out.
You may already know that the initial version of the Apple WATCH is some kind of Airplay functionality of an iPhone application, basically extensions of these iPhone apps in the form of Glances and Notifications. Glances are small snippets of data from the iPhone app that a user can browse on the WATCH. Notifications you understand already I suppose.
IK Multimedia just announce the sequel on their popular Guitar interface for iOS and Mac OS X. How do you enhance something so revolutionary that it altered the world? IKM’s answer: Just create the iRig 2.
In 2010, for the first time ever, the original iRig allowed guitar and bass players to plug into their iPhone and use their mobile device to play, practice and record with apps like IK’s AmpliTube, Apple’s GarageBand and thousands more.
March 9, the day that the price of gold has reached a new Jesus level sort of, the day that we will remember that the price of gold has never been so cheap. Everyone and his mother were shocked about the outrageous price of the Apple WATCH edition starting at $10,000. The next day I told my colleague what a great investment opportunity it was to buy it. According to my gut feeling, because Tim announced it was only sold in limited editions, the demand will be bigger than Apple can make so it will be *the* trend fashion statement for the (new)rich. And believe me, there are a lot of new millionaires only because of the App-store or other startups, the Snapchats of Silicon Valley.
Not only this, but now Samsung, Sony, Microsoft, HTC and what have you not, will come with golden wearables and laptops to follow the trend-leader.
Look at the price chart of Gold, if you had 1 Kilo or 2.2 Pounds you would have gained almost $1000 since the WATCH event (4 days ago).
Pioneer’s second generation Networked Entertainment eXperience or NEX receivers are now available for purchase. The goodies were revealed earlier at the CES 2015. There are five receivers to choose from, rolling from the production line.
The AVIC-8100NEX features Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer and more fun way to use your iPhone in the car. Apple CarPlay gives iPhone users an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, use Maps, listen to music, and access messages with just a word or a touch.
Sports people who like to monitor more than just the hart-rate and step count are bound to the iPhone, unfortunately. Apple didn’t build a GPS receiver in the WATCH, which is a missed opportunity. But hey, they have to reserve some features to present the next edition of course. On one hand many runners have already some kind of iPod/iPhone for music listening, so adding the WATCH is just a logical add-on.
On the other hand, you could also listen with a very small iPod nano and have a smart watch tracking your route via GPS. Maybe this is even more true for bikers who don’t listen music while racing.
Security is becoming more important and also more accessible at the same time. The quality of WiFi cameras are rapidly improving like this one—the Arlo—from Netgear, which comes with night-vision combined with motion detection. They are charged with 4 batteries and according to the image quality profile you select they last longer. It comes along with a basestation which you can connect to your home-router via a network cable. The Arlo records and alerts only when motion is detected so the batteries are not unnecessarily drained. Combine that with an nice mobile application and you are in total control. The even throw in an 1GB free cloud storage.
