Best Baby Monitor for Audio and Video Connections

By |April 24th, 2015|Categories: Baby Stuff, Recommendations|Tags: , , , , |

When I found out I was pregnant, I went crazy with checklists. By the third trimester, we had almost everything on our lists. The one thing we couldn't decide, however, was the best baby monitor. Do we spend $30 on a cheap audio-only monitor with poor quality? Is it worth spending $200 or more on a single-function video monitor that we’ll only need for a year or so? In this modern world, we expected a better option. After extensive research, we found the best baby monitor was actually an iOS app [...]

Say goodbye to your favorite apps

By |February 15th, 2011|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

With the introduction of Apple's new subscription/in-app purchasing rules, you're going to see many developers jumping ship.  We've been stewing on this all day but ran into this Gizmodo post by Matt Buchanan that literally says everything we wanted to say.  Seriously, give it a read... we're not usually Gizmodo junkies, but that's a well-written piece. Ultimately, everything comes down to this: many apps that you like -- Rhapsody, Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Kindle, Nook, etc. -- will be jumping sh [...]

The Kindle app’s days are numbered

By |February 1st, 2011|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

In a surprising chain of tweets this morning, we heard news that Apple rejected the Sony Reader app from the App Store due to the process which customers purchase eBooks.  We did a little searching and found this MacRumors article detailing the issue. Apple denied the Sony app because it allowed customers to purchase content directly from Sony and circumvented the typical in-app purchasing that we've come to love and loathe.  Instead of sharing the customary 30 - 70 split between Apple and the d [...]

Facebook Video Player for iPad

By |April 14th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

The name really says it all. Facebook Video Player for iPad is a new app from Kemal Taskin & Elma DIGIT@L. This app is -- I mean this seriously -- one of my favorite apps on the iPad. I guess I would consider myself a Facebook junkie but my wife is a lot worse so I don't feel that bad. Love you, babe. One of the biggest complaints about the iPad, iPhone and/or iPod touch is its lack of Flash. I've been brainwashed into thinking that Flash sucks by Apple (in truth, it really does... at least on t [...]

The iPad doesn’t break the bank, but the apps do.

Paul Miller, we hate you... not really. We've been putting off this post until this evening so we could give it the full attention it deserves. During our evening rounds, we spotted this post over at Engadget. Thanks, Paul. We want to be a little more blunt with our writing but at least we know that we're not alone. One thing that we've noticed since the introduction of the iPad App Store: app prices are ridiculous. We're not saying that developers don't deserve to be paid for their efforts, but [...]

Apple’s dictatorship has lasted long enough

By |February 24th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

By now, almost everyone is familiar with the fact that Apple "allows" us certain privileges with the iPhone OS. Be warned: this is an editorial piece that will most likely anger some and affirm others. Apple has become drunk with power... so drunk, in fact, that they honestly believe their users will put up with anything they do. What will it take for all of the Apple fanboys to get pissed off, or are we forever pathetically committed to a company that thinks it can control our every move? I'm s [...]

No sex in the champagne room (App Store)

By |February 20th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

We’re sure that Chris Rock never wanted us to use that joke in reference to the availability of iPhone porn, but we did anyway… sorry. Over the past week, developer after developer has been told by Apple that their applications were too risqué for the App Store. That’s one giant leap backwards for mankind. Please remember that the statements below are generalities (We’re not obsessed with porn nor do we have any opinion on the matter). Since the App Store launched bac [...]

App Store previews in a browser near you

By |February 5th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , |

Not too long ago, Apple introduced web-based browsing for songs and albums found in the iTunes Store... then they added 30 second streaming previews to that same interface. One could easily begin to wonder why we'd need the store integrated into the Application if Apple keeps this up -- yes, they kept it up. A few days ago, people started noticing their App Store links directing to a web-based app preview before sending them to iTunes. By copying the link to an app (or album, video, etc.), you c [...]
