Air Video for iPhone, iPad updated with multitasking and retina display support

Air Video, a fantastic app that can transcode and stream video content from your Windows PC or Mac straight to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, has just been updated to include support for multitasking and Retina display. 

Your Windows PC or Mac needs a small piece of software installed to communicate with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad but once setup you can stream native iOS video content (MP4 and M4V) instantly to your device (rather than having to sync it over first via iTunes). Air Video will convert non-supported video formats (AVI, MKV, etc) and either store them for later streaming or stream them on the fly so you can watch now rather than waiting for later.

New Michael Jackson song available exclusively on Ping

A new song from the late Michael Jackson has hit the net, but the only place you can currently grab the track is on Apple's Ping social network. The track will be exclusive to Ping for the next week, followed by the subsequent release of his full record on December 14th.

It's interesting to see the track being made available on Ping before MJ fans can grab it anywhere else. Hopefully this will give Ping a boost, as the social service hasn't picked up too much traction since its debut in early September.

Any Michael Jackson fans planning on downloading this new tune? Let us know in the comments!

Keep your gloves on but still use your iOS device with GloveTips [video]

You can imagine the scenario, you are out in the freezing winter weather, your iPhone rings and you can’t answer it; you can if you remove your gloves or use your nose but that is not a great solution. Well GloveTips may have the answer.

GloveTips are small dime sized flexible disks that you mount on your gloves. Each disk has special thread stitched in the center that will interact with capacitive touchscreen devices when you wear your glove.

Yes you can already buy purpose made gloves that you can use with your iPhone. The main difference is that you can use these with your own gloves. The videos after the break show how well GloveTips appear to work and also how they are fitted to your gloves. Not sure how well GloveTips will hold up if your gloves get wet or need washing.

GloveTips are available now at a price $19.99 for a pack of 3. Can you see yourself using this solution? Let us know in the comments.
