Audman Dock Turns iPhone into Walkman

The Audman is a Kickstarter project that is trying to bring back some retro-styling to the iPhone and iPod Touch. I’ll admit that plugging in your iPhone into the dock looks exactly like when you put a cassette into a Walkman, but there’s something strange about leaving it in there for long periods of time.

Steampunk iPhone Dock and Handset: The Past is Calling, Will You Accept the Charges?

Remember that minimal Bluetooth handset? Well it looks like Woodguy32 has decided to put his own spin on the whole iPhone handset thing, with this steampunk-inspired dock. Except for the handset, most of this thing is made out of oak wood and brass, which is good, and it’s also really nice and retro.

Soundfreaq Ghost Sound Platform: The (iPhone) Friendliest Ghost You Know

What is it about characters that are named Ghost that works so well? I liked Ghost in The Matrix and Matrix games, the direwolf named Ghost in A Game of Thrones, and there are probably other instances of this name working well. This time around, Soundfreaq’s new dock now comes available in a white version, perfect to match your white iPhone 4 or white iPad 2. And naturally, they smartly named it Ghost.

Many people are using their iPhones as their go-to point-and-shoot camera. It’s normal then that we’ve seen a few different lens add-ons.

Monsta and Waddler iPhone 4 Cases Set You Strangely Apart

While I don’t think that these would go well with a business suit, these cases from Case-Mate are quite unique. These iPhone 4 cases will set your phone apart from all of the rest, and that can be good or bad. Both of these cases, the Waddler and the Monsta, are available in a variety of colors.

Should You Jailbreak Your iDevice?

032311_rg_JailbreakingiDevice_01.jpgJailbreaking: the term itself reminds us of the show Prison Break and escaped convicts for obvious reasons. Jailbreaking, the process that allows iOS users to run any code on their devices, as opposed to only that code authorized by Apple out of the box, is an option for all iDevices, including iPod Touches, iPhones, iPads and even Apple TV. But should you do it? Jailbreaking will allow you to unlock all of those goodies that Apple doesn’t want you to have access to, but there are some caveats. Here are some pros and cons that come with making a prison break….

iPod Touch With 2MP Camera Leaked

The one thing that most people mention when talking about the iPod Touch and the iPad is the lack of a camera. It seems like everyone is going to be happy about the iPod Touch, since there are reports surfacing from Vietnam that an iPod Touch will have a 2MP camera in its next iteration.

Xeni Jardin & Her iPad

iPad mania is about to hit the world, and Xeni Jardin managed to snag a press-released iPad. Her write-up is interesting, though it doesn’t make me interested in the iPad. Much more than the iPhone, the iPad is a vehicle for consuming media. It’s a genius device by Apple, especially in the digital age. It allows content creators, like publishers and software producers, to still get paid for what they create. I obviously find that it’s something for users and I can’t see myself spending money on eBooks and apps from the app store.

Think about it for a moment. There’s the initial cost of the device, plus 3G service that you have to pay for every month. Then there are all of the apps, books, and media that you will consume, which will be added on top of that.

We’ve actually got a MacBook Pro in our home, and we’ll probably be adding another MacBook Pro this year. But we won’t be adding an iPad anytime soon.

What about you guys? Are you going to get an iPad? Frankly, I’ll get a MacBook Pro 17, which will be a lot more useful. The NY Times has got their own review up already.

Do I want a giant iPod Touch?

Nope, because I actually got an iPod Classic when there were iPod Touches on the market.


More storage. At the time, January 2008, it had 160GB of storage, which was almost enough for me to put on all of my music.
