My Favorite iPhone Apps So Far..

30 01 2010

Literally.. after installing hundreds of apps onto my iPhone.. and uninstalling the ones that don’t make the grade.. I find myself constantly going back to two apps on an almost daily basis..

For note taking.. I’m really loving NoteMaster.. The main strength is that I can insert photos into a note on the fly.. anywhere along my note.. You can work in landscape mode in all areas of the app.. and you can sync all your notes with Google Docs.. plus a lot of other features that make this a great app.. The only thing that I would say is missing is the ability to draw/sketch in your own doodles on the fly..

For photography.. I can count on my Hipstamatic to get me the look I want.. without having to do any post-work on it.. I can just uploead/email photos straight from the app.. Pick from my favorite lenses.. film.. strobe filters.. and fire away.. Great user interface.. Below are some pics I took myself with the app..

PAP Is For Paper.. And Paper Is For Me..

29 01 2010

Found this over at MOCO.. The PAP Chair by Martha Schwindling is modeled after a piece folded paper.. Liking that the frame which is normally under the seat.. if front and center on top of the chair body.. Another nice thing about this origami-like structure is that you can stack them for storage if needed..

I Still Have My socks On Steve..

28 01 2010

Well.. I have to say that the all new iPad didn’t knock me off my feet.. but I also have to say that there were a lot of features that I really liked..

Pro: Large screen.. thin.. light.. 10 hour battery life with 1 month standy-by.. great for surfing.. photos.. email.. videos.. etc.. Tons of apps that will work on it already.. A few great apps already designed for it.. and future apps to come..  and unlocked 3GS with great pricing..

Con: No multi-tasking.. No built-in camera.. No USB  or HDMI connectors.. No behind the back/case multi-touch controlling.. or any other super-wow item..

Apple Tablet :: iPad..

My verdict:  Even as it’s missing a lot that I wanted.. it will still be a joy to use.. Gonna get the 64gig 3GS in the States.. and worry about 3GS connectivity in Canada later..

My prediction: The iPad will still sell..

Hoist Your Coat Up On Arrival..

Liking the Hoist by Oscar Narud.. A dynamic hanging system that works for different sized rooms..

Just have to make sure that the ceiling hardware is well-anchored..

An Even Better Hands-Free SLR Harness..

25 01 2010

Earlier this month.. I posted about this hands-free camera harness..

Well I found this one yesterday.. and it’s called the Cotton Carrier .. and it’s even better.. and yes it carries small to large bodied SLRs.. and not cotton..

Do your active lifestyle activities.. and capture images.. and your SLR is within arms reach.. and not swinging wildly everywhere..

Check the video demo here to see it in action and for more details..

Nunchuks For A Joystic And Throttle Control..

22 01 2010

When I was a kid.. I used to remember tagging along with my dad.. He’d drive the Alfa or the big Dodge.. and I’d use the pair of nunchuks he made me as the joystick and throttle control.. as I imagined I was piloting my own super-vehicle.. Anyways.. segway to these awesome interior photos of this Panther Commander..

On my mark.. fire away..

Five more sleeps till we get news what Apple has in store for us this year.. Rumors have it that it will most likely be the long awaited iPad/iSlate/iTable/Apple Tablet.. Or it might be something altogether unexpected.. Will it be all that we’ve been waiting for and more?.. Or will it be a letdown?.. Five more sleeps..

Apple :: iPad/iSlate/iTablet/Apple Tablet.. Who knows?..
