One of the most frequent questions I've been getting lately, both here and on Twitter, is — how do we run podcasts on iMore and Mobile Nations? So, we grabbed some video gear, hit the studio, and knocked out this quick behind-the-scenes tour of all the equipment I use, and how I currently use it. Check it out!
This car charger sports a coiled-style cable which makes less of a mess when using it in your vehicle. The speedy 2.1AMP capacity allows for the fastest possible charge rate, ensuring you'll get the most life as you commute. There's even a LED indicator that lights up when plugged in to a 12V accessory socket!
Thirty years ago today Apple advertised the Macintosh nationally for the first time. That's a footnote that in and of itself isn't remarkable, but it's how they did it that everyone remembers: the 1984 ad. Thirty years on, the 1984 ad is still remembered as one of the best TV ads of all time. But why?
Apple has taken their Your Verse spot, featuring Robin Williams' voice-over from Dead Poets Society, and broken it down into two shorter, more tightly focused sports, Light Verse and Sound Verse. Both Light, above, and Sound, below, share the same description:
Crafted from a hard yet flexible material, the SURFACE Case provides an amazingly thin layer of protection without adding any excessive bulk. This case consists of interlocking top and bottom pieces that fit your iPhone 5C snugly and features a soft-touch finish.
Vizzywig was one of the sponsors of our #CESlive programming, but I have nothing to do with the sponsorships around here, and I wasn't aware of them when I walked into the show. After having spent several hours a day on stage, both watching Geek Beat's John P. using it, and using it myself, I was blown away. Here's how we used it to help shoot about 80 interviews in just 4 days!
This slim-fitting case provides great protection with a rugged texture backing. The sleek, light-weight design of the case fully wraps around your iPhone while also raising the front of the phone to protect the screen while face down. The built-in, retractable kickstand folds out when you're ready for handsfree viewing.
Just before #CESlive ended, I ran back and took a look at all the stylus pens that were being shown off on the show floor. There's weren't any big new announcements, but I did get to go hands on with a lot of the most recent updates. I have to say, the improvements we're seeing are remarkable. Instead of dull and drab, we're getting sexy and stylish, instead of big plastic disks, we're getting fine points, instead of rubber nibs, we're getting interchangeable brushes, and instead of dumb, dead pens, we're getting Bluetooth 4.0 LE-based pressure sensitivity and palm rejection. And 2014 has only just begun!
