Melody of Christmas Songs Performed by Amazing iBand [Video]

No comments:



Check out this melody of Christmas songs performed by the North Point iBand using only iPads and iPhones.

The melody was performed for an Opener on Sunday, December 5th, 2010.

Jared arranged “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Feliz Navidad” using the apps, and creating a demo by multitracking them in Apple’s Logic software (though any Digital Audio Workstation would do the trick).

Jared, Eddie Kirkland and I arranged the first song, “Carol of the Bells“. It’s amazing what you come up with when you sit in a room, hook 3 iPhones up to some speakers, and get adventurous!

Hit the link below for a list of what apps were used.

Peel Announces Peel Universal Control for iPhone

No comments:



Peel today announced new hardware allowing the free Peel discovery iPhone app to control home entertainment systems.

The Peel hardware consists of two pieces: the Peel cable and the Peel fruit. Designed by renowned product designer Yves Behar of fuseproject, the hardware was carefully approached to fit beautifully in any home entertainment configuration.

The Peel fruit sits within line-of-sight of a user's entertainment system, and it's the only visible piece of the system. There's nothing to plug into the iPhone, and the second piece of the system is designed to plug directly in to a power outlet on one end and the ethernet port of a wireless router on the other.

The careful integration of the Peel discovery app with Peel universal control allows the system to recommend top viewing choices from a user's available sources, then begin a show with one tap. Over time, Peel learns an individual's viewing patterns including time of day, premium channels, sporting events and more, and the suggested shows become better tailored. After a show has been chosen, the interface was designed to be used without having to take one's eyes away from the TV.

Pricing and Availability:
Peel is running a social campaign to help determine hardware pricing. Further, a limited quantity of the first units to be manufactured are available directly from Peel – for whatever consumers are willing to pay. Consumers can simply make an offer on the Peel website, and the first units available will be shipped directly to the customers making the best offer. After that quantity is sold, Peel universal control will be available in major online and retail stores. Users of the Peel discovery app will also be able to purchase the control system through the app.

iPad Lock Anti-Theft Security Solution

No comments:



The iPad Lock uses a cable that attaches to a clear plastic iPad case to lock down your device and prevent theft.

The first component of the patent-pending iPad Lock is a hard, clear plastic case you can leave on for everyday protection. And since the iPad has no security slot, the case has one built in. That way you can lock the security cable to the case, and loop the cable's other end around a fixed object (like a table). Once the case and cable are locked together, thieves can't detach the case without damaging the iPad.

Likewise, the strong steel cable will discourage any thief. Weighing less than one pound, the cable is extremely sleek and its lock-head has the smallest diameter of any computer lock in the world. This makes the iPad Lock flexible and light, not to mention stylish, so you can easily pack it in your bag and take it with you wherever you go.

The product has a suggested retail price ranging from $39.95 to $79.95, and comes in three variations:
1) Stand-alone case: Custom security case for iPad
2) Security bundle: Custom security case for iPad + universal security cable lock
3) Resale pack: 25 or 100 units of the stand-alone case or security bundle

Free M-Commerce App Builder For iOS And Android

No comments:



MobiCart has announced that its free, mobile-optimized e-commerce storefront development solution for Apple iOS and Google Android devices is now immediately available for download and deployment from the MobiCart website. First shown at the renowned DEMO Fall 2010 show in September as a public Beta, MobiCart has now been released for general use by anyone seeking to develop a native m-commerce storefront solution for their customers.

MobiCart enables retailers to easily develop customized applications for end-user download onto their mobile devices while also providing a comprehensive back-end management platform for inventory control. These work in tandem to allow users to engage in a totally customized, native mobile commerce experience that is optimized for them and their specific shopping needs via their own supported mobile device.

MobiCart works as a standalone storefront, so businesses can develop their own mobile e-commerce site without even having a website. MobiCart can of course also be fully-customized to match the look and feel of an existing website, while easily allowing for the inclusion of inventory data and new pages to the app - it's your own shop with your own brand. MobiCart simply makes it simple and free to implement.

MobiCart enables businesses to save tens of thousands of dollars that would normally be required to develop their own application and mobile storefront while also enhancing brand and customer loyalty through an app that is unique to each user. All this is accomplished without CSS or developing an encapsulated website on the mobile device - MobiCart is a native app on its supported operating systems.

With an open API, MobiCart is easily and quickly integrated into existing shopping cart solutions, while also allowing developers to build and distribute extensions to MobiCart and take part in a growing community via its online marketplace. The MobiCart marketplace is a core aspect of the solution. Developers can easily extend the storefront and develop a any manner and number of add-ons, which they will then be able to give away or sell.

Raymond Kiersey, General Manager of Retail Sales at Flybe - Europe's largest regional airline and MobiCart's first customer - noted during the company's Beta evaluation that: "We are very excited about this revolutionary new product. Our customers are busy people and MobiCart's technology will allow them to make duty-free purchases on the go. We believe providing an easy mobile purchasing option will greatly increase sales by aiding potential customers who otherwise haven't the time."

Twitter has announced that you can now hear iTunes song previews in the details pane when a tweet links to iTunes media.

One of the most popular features of #newTwitter is the ability to check out photos, videos, and music directly in the details pane.

Steve Jobs Says MobileMe 'Will Get a Lot Better' Next Year

No comments:



Steve Jobs has responded to a customers email about problems with MobileMe and assured him that 'it will get a lot better in 2011', according to a MacRumors report.

-----
I love my iPad and iPhone4 and am a huge fan of yours and all that Apple does. I desperately want to stay inside of Apple'e ecosystem as much as possible.

However, MobileMe is making it very difficult for me to do so. Unreliable/unpredictable syncing, creating duplicate entries (sometimes scores of them), etc. It's almost unusable.

And I know from forums (including Apple's own support boards) that I am not the only one experiencing these very real and frustrating problems.

Please tell me it will get better, and soon?
-----

Yes, it will get a lot better in 2011.

With iOS 4.2.1 Apple made 'Find My iPhone' a previously paid MobileMe service free for all users.

Munster Says Apple Made Two Big Errors When Launching the iPhone

No comments:



Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says 'Apple has made two meaningful errors since its entrance into the iPhone business in 2007'

● The company did not originally subsidize the iPhone, but it quickly corrected this error by offering the original iPhone at a lower price shortly after its release, and offering the iPhone 3G at a subsidized price one year after the original iPhone launched
● We also believe that Apple's exclusive agreement with AT&T has limited demand for the device. We expect Apple to correct this issue by the end of [the first half of 2011] and add Verizon to the list of carriers that sell the iPhone in the US.

Munster believes the fact that only AT&T is carrying the iPhone is why Google Android phones are outselling iPhones in the United States.

"As an example, in countries where the iPhone is available on multiple carriers and competes with Android, we see the iPhone outselling Android. The greatest factor in the success of Android has been Verizon. Customers are loyal to their carrier, and once Verizon gets the iPhone, we believe Android's success in the US will be tested."

AutoCAD WS Adds Support for Offline Editing

No comments:



AutoCAD WS for iPhone and iPad has been updated with support for offline editing and the ability to open email attachments.

AutoCAD WS mobile app enables you to view and work with AutoCAD drawings directly on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. Using the touch and gesture interface of your iPad or iPhone you can accurately view, annotate, and revise drawings on the spot. Change the way you work in the field or on the road by reducing the need to carry around over-sized paper drawings.

What's New In This Version:

✓Offline Editing
Work on your drawings, even when you don’t have a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. Convenient for times when you are in the field, find yourself with a poor connection, or want to view and edit while you are in meetings or out of the office. From your online AutoCAD WS account, select the option to save a local version to your iPad or iPhone. When you reconnect, AutoCAD WS will re-sync your offline DWG files to capture the edits and annotations you’ve made and place them into the timeline correctly. From there, you can download the changes to your AutoCAD software for further editing, or share them with other users.

✓Open Email Attachments
You can now open DWG and DXF™ files that you have received as email attachments directly into AutoCAD WS. You will need an online connection to upload the email attachments, but once they are in your AutoCAD WS account, you can save a local copy to work on offline.

✓Connectivity Improvements
We have reduced the bottlenecking that caused issues immediately following the original release resulting in significantly improved connectivity.

✓High Resolution Support for iPhone 4 Retina Display
New icons to support four times more pixels on the high-resolution, high-contrast iPhone 4.

You can download AutoCAD WS from the App Store for free.
