Pogo Sketch stylus for iPhone and iPad - accessory review

Pogo Sketch stylus for iPhone and iPad - accessory review

Here we have the Pogo Sketch stylus [$14.95], the small, lightweight and stylish choice for those who want to write on their iPhone or iPad.

The Pogo Sketch comes in sliver or pink and is made of a aluminum alloy that makes it look sleek and feel sturdy in your hand. The capacitive foam tip gives a nice soft feel when its used, though I do find you have to press a bit harder than when using your finger. The tip is thin which is also good for those who want to do detail work or get around pudgy fingers to begin with. There's a handy clip on the back so it will fit over your shirt, book bag, or hang off your pouch case. It also has a loop on the top so if you want to hang it from your neck -- or anyplace else -- you can just place a cord around it and go. They really did think of everything.

Some (including Steve Jobs) may ask: why use a stylus at all when you always have your fingers handy. Well I live in a cold climate and I hate having to take off my gloves to use my iPhone or iPad. I also would rather use a stylus when I am doing anything which leaves my fingers dirty like eating or yard work. Also, drawing with a stylus is fun.

I keep my Pogo Sketch with me in my purse, so if ever I need it is always at hand. It works really well with the iPhone and iPad and is a good deal at $14.99. It's especially great for a gift because it is very useful for any iPhone, iPad user. If you pick one up please let me know if you enjoy it as much as I do!

Kinder, gentler Steve Jobs chimes in about Adobe in latest email

Kinder, gentler Steve Jobs chimes in about Adobe in latest email

In the latest email from Steve Jobs we are seeing a kinder and gentler individual who actually had something positive to say regarding Adobe. MacStories reader Josh Cheney shot off the following in a email:

“Do you hate Adobe and their products (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc) or do you just hate their view on Flash?”

Jobs then responded with some more than usual kind words:

“I respect and admire Adobe. We just chose to not have Flash on our devices.”

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction now available for iPhone

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction now available for iPhone

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction is now available in the App Store for $9.99. Stealth action has finally made it to the iPhone. I have not had too much time with the title, but it looks and controls great.

The game has Sam Fisher is back in his first foray on the iPhone. Controls are standard fanfare, virtual joystick on the left and action buttons that change dynamically based on the situation on the right. The duck and cover mechanics are fun and there are lots of new mechanics such as a white shadow that appears indicating Sam's last known position to the enemy. This comes in very handy for strategically dodging the bad guys. The views are sweet and frame-rate is good. I will be reviewing this game soon, but for now, enjoy a couple screenshots from early in the game and the official trailer after the break!

[$9.99- iTunes Link]

UPDATED: Steve Ballmer NOT announcing iPhone, iPad Visual Studio support at WWDC? [Crazy alert!]

An analyst has let fly that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will be getting 7 minutes of time during the WWDC 2010 keynote -- where the iPhone HD/iPhone 4G will al but certainly be introduced -- to announce Visual Studio 2010 will support the native creation of iPhone, iPad, and Mac apps. Is there a word in the English language for something so bat$#!t crazy "rumor" and even "fiction" just don't properly convey its bat$#!t craziness?

Some international iPads arriving early, hundreds of thousands of US iPads already there

Some international iPads arriving early, hundreds of thousands of US iPads already there

Several readers hit us up saying their iPads were already arriving, ahead of Apple's May 28 international release date (at least phase one of it, phase two is slated for July). Given the spread of 9 countries, its probably harder for Apple to keep their iron grip on delivery dates and still make sure customers get them when they're supposed to.

If your iPad did indeed arrive early, drop us a note in the comments and let us know where and when.

Mercedes-Benz Financial adapts iPad for business use

Mercedes-Benz Financial adapts iPad for business use

Mercedes-Benz is providing iPads to 40 lucky dealers across the country so that they gain access to the company's point-of-sale dealer system on the showroom floors.

"Mercedes-Benz Financial today announced that it is putting the Apple iPad into the hands of its dealers, becoming the first automotive finance company to give dealers mobile access to its proprietary point-of-sale dealer system called MB Advantage. In doing so, Mercedes-Benz Financial is one of the first companies to adapt the consumer-oriented iPad as a mobile business tool."

And why not use iPad as it will provide the dealers with wireless mobility, information and flexibility - directly at their finger tips.

Video after the break! And yes we are aware it will not play on your iPhone - blame Mercedes-Benz for using Flash...

Apple had safer iPhone G4 prototypes incase iPhone HD was delayed?

Apple had safer iPhone G4 prototypes incase iPhone HD was delayed?

Another page to be filed in our increasingly full "things analysts say which may or may not be so" drawer says Apple wasn't sure whether or not the N90 "iPhone HD" prototype would be ready to launch and so had a safer, more iPhone 3GS-like N91 in the wings:

On a side note, Apple initiated the iPhone 4G project at the end of 2008. According to our sources, Apple actually has another product codenamed N91 for the project, which offers less change from previous iPhones compared with the N90. It's a parallel product to back up the N90 in case there are major delays due to significant modifications in casing, display resolution, digital camera support and so forth.

Wired brings their magazine to the iPad

Wired brings their magazine to the iPad

At over 5ooMB, Wired's iPad app arrives in the App Store and yes, the future of magazine reading appears to arrive with it!

Last November we gave a sneek-peek at Wired's concept for a magazine on a tablet. That demo was in Adobe's Flash. The new version is 100% Flash free and is beautiful.

Navigating the magazine is a breeze; tap on the screen and you are given overlayed navigation tools. The bottom scrolls through pages and the top has two options- zoom out and a vertical list of articles in the issue.

There is plenty of interactive content too. Videos from the upcoming Toy Story movie and 3D real-time models of Mars and a Lego Lamborghini. With this awesome content and interactivity comes a price; $4.99 an issue. Is it worth it? Let us know in comments! Check screenshots after the break!

[$4.99- iTunes Link]

mommy to be for iPhone - app review

mommy to be for iPhone - app review

mommy to be is a pregnancy tracking application for the iPhone. It provides detailed weekly information, photos, tips, and a place to store notes.

The home screen of mommy to be displays how many weeks you are into your pregnancy, your baby's length and size, a meter to visually see how far you've progressed, and much more. There is also a new photograph displayed for each week. Although these photographs are very nice, I would prefer to see a picture that shows how the fetus looks at this stage in development. One thing I found strange about mommy to be is that the accomplished number of weeks is correct, but the current week is one week ahead. My suspicion is that since this app was developed in Europe, they count their weeks different than we do in the US.

In addition to the home screen, there are tabs for "You" and "Your Baby". Here you'll find detailed information about what to expect with your body and the developmental changes that are happening with your baby. One or both of theses sections will generally also include a cute picture that is related to the topic being discussed.

The tips tab is an excellent section of this app. Each week, mommy to be gives you a different tip related to pregnancy, babies, shopping, or anything that is related to being pregnant. I find this part especially helpful as a first-time mom.

mommy to be is a great pregnancy application that offers a lot of useful information. This app will be good companion for any pregnant woman wanting to track their pregnancy and learn about the process on the way.

Video and screenshots after the break!
