Dad and Son Send iPhone To Space!

Dad and Son Send iPhone To Space!

A Brooklyn father/son team decided to do a little science experiment involving an iPhone, an HD camera, a weather balloon, and a takeout box.  Their goal was to capture footage of space.  And they did.  Space and our atmosphere can be pretty harsh, so they put hand warmers on the interior of the ramped up takeout box to insulate the iPhone and camera from the unbelievably cold temperatures and 150 mph winds.

The helium balloon made the journey upwards and made it about 19 miles (100,000 feet) before finally popping due to the low pressure.  You can hear some audio interference as well (partly due to the iPhone trying to acquire a GPS signal).  After popping, the device made its journey back towards the Earth at an amazing 150 mph even with a parachute attached!

They'd attached a note inside offering a reward for whoever found it to return it, but surprisingly, they caught a GPS signal and found the package in a tree about 30 miles away from the original launch site.  Hit the jump for an awesome video showing the black sky above the atmosphere!

iPad vs iPhone "Tweet It" in Michael Jackson parody [Monday fun video]

iPad vs iPhone "Tweet It" in Michael Jackson parody [Monday fun video]

From the prodigy tech/hip hop online group Paintless Nights comes the iPhone vs. iPad in Tweet It, another great fun-loving video featuring Apple's iconic and much-loved phone and tablet devices duking it out MJ style.

These are they same guys (and gals) that brought us I'm on a Mac (I'm on a Boat spoof) and The New Dork - Entrepreneur State of Mind, two parody-style videos featuring both Apple products and Social Media -- both also being hilarious, and highly recommended if you're looking for a quick jolt of entertainment before you get a pile of work on your desk to get started on.

The video goes right along with Michael Jackson's hit song Beat It music video -- depicting two gangs going head to head Brooklyn style -- from Thriller, one of the greatest albums of all time. Hey, we all know how much everyone hates Mondays, right? Well here's a little something to throw into today's stress-inducing routine that'll help you start this week out with a bang!

If Apple made multi-color iPhones, which color would you buy?

If Apple made multi-color iPhones, which color would you buy?

If Apple made multi-color iPhones, which color would you buy?customer surveys

While we're still waiting on the white iPhone 4, and avoiding the annual holiday (PRODUCT) red iPhone rumors, we got to wondering -- if Apple did produce multi-color, "nanochromatic" versions of iPhone, which color would you buy?

Would you stick with black or would you crazy with color? Would you prefer Apple back the color into the iPhone or do you prefer being able to get different colored cases to switch things up all on your own?

Fullscreen for Safari extension for iPhone [Jailbreak]

Fullscreen for Safari extension for iPhone [Jailbreak]

The Cydia Store now has a great extension available for jailbroken iPhone and iPod touch called Fullscreen for Safari that allows for not only toggling Safari into fullscreen mode for completely unobstructed browsing, but also includes multi-touch gestures.

This package costs $1.49 and has functionality and options that will completely change the way you use Safari. You can do things like two finger swipe left/right to switch tabs, two-finger swipe up/down to either open a new tab or close the current tab respectively, and shake to toggle fulscreen mode. (I personally love this function.) To get into fullscreen mode, the developer has defaulted to using a three finger tap anywhere on a page, but I've reassigned that to bring up my bookmarks since I can just shake my iPhone to get it into fullscreen mode.

This Cydia extension is seriously sweet, and I would absolutely consider this a must-have for all iPhone and iPod touch jailbreakers (not yet available for iPad). You can follow the developer, @_Yllier_, on Twitter to keep informed of any updates.

UPD

Video after the break and if you have played with Fullscreen for Safari, let us know how you like it!
