Goodnight iPad: a Parody for the next generation, by Ann Droyd (ha!) is a cute little twist to the bedtime story, Goodnight Moon. Today's children have iPad's, iPhones, computers, and all sorts of gadgets and electronics, so this book is about saying goodnight to these items instead of the traditional ones in Goodnight Moon.
Now go grab a cup of hot chocolate and join me around the fire for a reading of this modern bedtime story!
I have a very short attention span when it comes to accessories for my iPhone and iPad, and my most used accessories reflect that. To really keep my attention an accessory has to stand out from what I already own. If it looks like something I already have or doesn't provide any additional features, I probably won't give it a second look. Here are the ones I've found to be functional and versatile enough to keep around.
The style of the Apple store is unmistakeable. With wooden tables and mostly clear acrylic displays, all the shiny Macs and iPads and iPhones on display can be seen in all their glory. Why not bring a bit of that simplistic display home with you so your gadgets can look just as awesome? Of course, I'm not encouraging you to steal from the Apple store. NewMacgadets.com has some really neat display options that mimic those found in the Apple store.
I generally keep things pretty simple and straightforward when it comes to my 2011 most-used accessories. I stick to things that enhance functionality more than form. I think Apple's done a tremendous design job and I tend to lean more toward items that add an ability to do something or improve some part of my workflow (or enjoyment). Here are a few of my favorites.
Giveaway: Watch the video then leave a comment letting us know which of the Otterbox cases you'd love to win!
Last month, I had the pleasure of visiting the OtterBox headquarters in Fort Collins, CO and talk with Jordan about the history of the OtterBox name, the design and testing process, and get a closer look and description for each case series for the iPhone and iPad.
In addition to the interview, Jordan also passed on one of each case series to give away to our readers! Specifically, we have the following:
SoundHound: Unlimited music recognition! Featuring the world's fastest, most accurate music identification, exclusive singing search, and now: free unlimited LiveLyrics* for over 1 million of your iTunes tracks in SoundHound Player.
The iPhone 4 is known to have issues when it comes to the home button -- all that double-clicking for multitasking seems to have come at a price! This is probably the reason they redesigned the home button assembly in the iPhone 4S. If your GSM iPhone 4 home button has become unresponsive or loose, a DIY repair is something you can perform with the right tools and about 45 minutes of your time.
Georgia, Rene, and Seth talk iMore (that's our new name!) at CES 2012, Apple's education event, supplier responsibility, iPad 3 rumors, and the return of the mute switch debate. Join us for the last iPad Live ever!
Curious how to enable iOS 5's Assistive Touch accessibility feature? Whether you have trouble using the physical controls on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, or the controls themselves have simply stopped working properly, Assistive Touch can give you a great, software-based alternative.
"Mujjo capacitive touchscreen gloves are amust-have for any serious iPhone or iPad user caught in a cold, wintery climate."
Why have I instantly fallen in love with Mujjo's capacitive touchscreen gloves for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad? It's simple, really. I live in Canada where it's routinely been -20 celsius for the last couple of weeks -- so cold that when you go outside your face freezes and the last thing you want to do is pull off your nice warm gloves just to use your iPhone while out and about. You'd rather miss a call, wait to answer a text, or forget about looking something up on the web than risk the frostbite inducing winds and bone chilling snow. But with Mujjo, I don't have to give up my multitouch just to stay warm -- thanks to the capacitive carry-through, I can slide to unlock and tap away all from within the comfort of my gloves.
