How to turn an iPad into a skateboard?!

New iPad Test – Will It Shred? from FUEL TV on Vimeo.

Yesterday’s microwave iPad experiment left a lot of you feeling empty and maybe a bit sick that someone would waste at least $500 when there are starving kids in the world that desperately could use a Happy Meal. Like all they did was put the iPad in the microwave and turn it one. That’s a truly waste, a stunt designed to get a bit of Internet attention.

Well, today’s video is so much better. An iPad is put to good use. The two fellows in the video truly want to know if the iPad is Shred-able. That’s a legitamet question in my book. And so they set out to create a rideable iPad. You’re going to wanna see this.

10 Reasons the iPhone is still the best (part four)

21/04/2010

This does not so much concern the phone itself, but the tons of accessories that has been made for this unit.

When you see a person yapping on their iPhone, you can bet your shorts he / she has spend some amount of money on accessories. Why is that you ask? The answer is simple… because its made tons of it. Everything from docks, skins, covers, headsets, FM-transmitters, carkits, docks you can put in your hot-tub, and the list goes on.

Third-party iPhone accessories is big business, really big business, and thats great. Because it enables the consumer to customize their phone to their liking. I for instance, have a Paul Frank cover and earphones from Creative, and all this allows me as consumer to get the most out of my user experience.

The Geneva Model L is an example of what great accessories has been made

How about an iPhone Wall Dock?

Put the iPhone in your car?

And there you have it. Yeat ANOTHER reason the iPhone is, and still will be the best.

10 Reasons the iPhone is still the best (part three)

Part Three

Third party apps and the App Store

Yeah, yeah! I know you hate me, but I haven’t heard a single argument proving me wrong. So here is yet another reason the iPhone still is the best.

One of the reasons to choose a smartphone terminal is the ability to customize and adjust the type of software and applications that is important to you. The App Store is by far the best system for downloading and enjoying third party apps.

6 reasons the AppStore is the best:

  • Simple and intuitive UI
  • Description, reviews, and screenshots on one page
  • Two clicks, and its downloaded
  • Everything is categorized by genre, free apps, apps that costs money, and top 25
  • The largest library of apps on the market
  • Apps are downloadable OTA, or through iTunes
  • Many apps are exclusive to the App Store

The closest competitor to App Store is Android Market, but it lacks the simple UI and “fluid” feel of it. It also has fewer apps and has suffered greatly with technical issues and alot of bogus applications.

So there you have it, another reason the iPhones is still the best. Comment or send me your hatemail here.

iPhone OS 3.2 Reveals References to New iPhone, and iPod

06/04/2010

Boy Genius Report noted over the weekend that Apple’s new iPhone OS 3.2 released with the iPad contains references to four new iPhone OS devices. While the new listings, which appear to correspond to two new iPhones, an iPod touch, and an iPad, are not terribly surprising given Apple’s product development timelines, they still provide reassurance of the company’s future plans.

On the iPhone front, the iPhone OS 3.2 configuration file contains references to “iPhone3,2” and “iPhone3,3”, two previously-undocumented iPhone devices. The iPhone 3GS currently carries the designation “iPhone2,1”, and a successor “iPhone3,1” was discovered in a similar configuration file in March 2009. That device appears to have begun field testing last November and is expected to be released later this year. It is unknown how the newly-revelaled iPhone models relate to the “iPhone3,1” model currently in testing.

The current iPod touch carries a designation of “iPod3,1”, and the new entry presumably refers to the next-generation model set for launch in the September timeframe if previous releases are any indication.

The first “iProd” entry showed up in March 2009 as “iProd0,1”, which appeared to designate a prototype device. A new “iProd1,1” entry showed up last August that, as many had assumed, did turn out to be the iPad. While the listing has since been updated to be called “iPad1,1”, the new “iProd2,1” listing is of course being considered as a possible next-generation iPad.
