Beatlemania 2009!

[ad#textonly] Apple is quite the nifty company. Possibly the “coolest” computer company ever to exist, as it successfully carved its way into the history books by merging MUSIC (hip) and HARDWARE (nerd) to create a little thing known as the iPod, which itself will be pop cultural hall-of-fame. Now apple is set to release a discography of possibly the most widely accepted pop musicians of all time, The Beatles! Seriously, who doesn’t like the Beatles? Admit it, even the biggest haters will find themselves tapping along without even realising. The release will feature: a 16 disc collection is comprised of all 12 studio Beatles albums, with the addition of ‘Past Masters Vol. 1 and 2. What makes this...

Amazing little Vinyl App for iPod/iPhone...

Apparently this was a quick app put together as Theodore’s response to Todd Vanderlins AR scratching. It cleverly uses the accelerometer,  slowing down the record and speeding it up is just a matter of controlling how fast you spin the device. Just watch the video. Oh and the song is Full Clip by Gang Starr....

iHoop

On the one hand I’m inclined to think that this puppy takes the i-crap thing  a step too far. An official NBA basketball hoop with an inbuilt iPod dock? C’mon, really? But then the NBA and Apple fanboy within takes over and goes “Oh look at that shiny apple and basketball related thing!! Must have an iHoop! Braaaaaaaains!” Ahem. Maybe I won’t be shelling out the cash for this thing now but holy shit would I have kicked up a stink for one of these when I was a kid. Full-on hold my breath and annoy the crap out of the parents tantrums at all hours of the day and night. A fully height adjustable glass backboard with...

iPod Shuffle. Minimalist to the max.

Yep. They did it again. It’s smaller, better, faster stronger… oh wait. Blah blah blah, it’s latest little gimmick is that it uses VoiceOver technology, which enables the Shuffle to speak your song titles, artists and playlist names. Albeit in a Apple Robot voice. Screen? Who needs a screen? And seriously, they managed to make it freaking tiny. I mean this thing is the size of the remote that used to hang off the earphones of my MiniDisc player. Oh wait, they even did move the controls this new iPod to be on the earphones like my old MiniDisc player. Apple is crazy though, they are updating their product line like there is no tomorrow. New models annouced...
