LogMeIn Ignition vs. Screens vs. iTeleport: VNC apps for iPad shootout!

Screen sharing and VNC apps allow you to log in and access other computers remotely straight from your iPad. Whether you've forgotten a file on your work computer, need to access data from your Mac at home while you're on vacation, or want to run your server room from pool-side, a VNC app is what you need to get the job done. LogMeIn Ignition, Screens, and iTeleport will all give you access to any Mac, PC, or server you've linked them up with from anywhere in the world. But, they all handle the process in very different ways. Is one more convenient and full featured than the others or will they cater to completely different user bases? Follow along and we'll help you figure out which one may be right for you.

Adonit Jot Touch pressure-sensitive, Bluetooth stylus review

The Adonit Jot Touch is one of the first of a new generation of stylus pens for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad that uses Bluetooth technology in addition to traditional capacitance to allow for pressure sensitivity and a wider artistic range.

So, while the Adonit Jot Touch looks like the Adonit Jot Pro, including the removable cap, the smooth, elgantly machined body, and the thin, hard writing tip capped by a plastic, capacitive disk, a lot has changed on the inside.

iOS 6 preview: Siri shares to Facebook and Twitter, launches apps for everyone

Siri was a bit of a tease on iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S -- while it could send Messages and Mails, it couldn't send status updates to Twitter or Facebook, and it couldn't even open an app. With iOS 6, however, Siri is not only launching on the iPad, but it's launching you into any app on your device, and posting tweets and updates like a social champ.

BlackBerry Music Gateway for iPhone and iPad review

Okay. Yes. Sure. It's made by Research in Motion (RIM) and called the BlackBerry Music Gateway, but thanks to the universal standard that is Bluetooth, this mighty little marvel works not only fine with Apple's iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad -- it works fantastically well. You connect it to your existing home theater/stereo system, your car or camper audio, your boat or backyard boom box, tap to connect, and make with the music. It really is just that simple, and just that awesome.

iOS 6 preview: Siri goes to the movies

Not many real-world assistants will help you find a movie to watch anymore, or look up who is in it and how well it's rated for you, not even Siri on iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S. With iOS 6, however, Siri is not only opening on the iPad, but its becoming a veritable movie buff to boot.

iOS 6 preview: Siri reserves restaurants

As any good personal virtual assistant should, Siri on iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S has always been okay at finding you places to eat and drink. Now, with iOS 6, Siri is hitting the iPad, and adding even more restaurant savvy to its repertoire, including all the information you need to pick a place, and even the ability to reserve you a table.

1Password vs. LastPass vs. mSecure: iPhone password management app shootout!

Security is constantly at war with convenience. Having unique, strong passwords for all your online accounts sounds great until you realize how tedious it is to implement them and how impossible it is to remember them. Because your iPhone is always with you, however, and because it has some truly great password management apps like 1Password, LastPass, and mSecure, it can be the ideal way to maximize security and minimize convenience. Not only that, password managers can be a great place to store all your secure information, including credit and debit cards, private notes, software licenses, and more. They can also help you generate and help you implement all your super strong, super secure passwords.

Considering the serious hacking attacks we've seen recently, you should absolutely start using a password manager, but which one should you use?

Desk Pets CarBot iPhone controlled race car review

CarBots are billed as "micro-robotic" race cars, and while that's pretty cool in and of itself, the really cool part is this -- they're "micro-robotic" race cars you can control with you iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or even Android!
