3-in-1 iPad Dongle Offers USB, SD, and MicroSD Connectivity

No comments:



M.I.C. Store has a 3-in-1 iPad dongle that offers USB, SD, and MicroSD connectivity.

Remember the 2-in-1 iPad camera connection kit? It’s an useful accessory for your iPad, and it’s amazing to see that the two dongles Apple sells bundled together for $29 have been reduced to just the one device, but what’s more amazing we seeing here is a 3-in-1 version. And it comes in black color too.

The dongle is available to pre-order now for USD$29.90 tax incl. but unfortunately won't deliver till after Christmas. It's available in black or white.

SlingPlayer Mobile App Adds High Quality Streaming

No comments:



SlingPlayer has updated its iPhone application with high quality video streaming capabilities.

Watch and control your home TV and DVR on your iPhone or iPod touch! When connected over 3G or Wi-Fi to a Slingbox SOLO, or PRO-HD (Slingboxes* sold separately), the award winning SlingPlayer Mobile software will play anything you can see on your TV at home on your iPhone or iPod touch. Now you can change channels, control your DVR and watch your favorite shows right on your phone.

View and control video sources such as:
-Cable set-top box and DVR
-Satellite set-top box and DVR
-Telco / IPTV set-top box and DVR
-Basic cable
-Digital Over-the-Air broadcasts (Slingbox PRO-HD only)
-Tivo
-Apple TV
-Home security cameras

What's New In This Version:
-IMPORTANT: If you have a Slingbox SOLO or a Slingbox PRO-HD, after installing this update, you can’t connect to your Slingbox until you upgrade your Slingbox Software to the latest version (2.1.80 for PRO-HD and 2.1.110 for SOLO). You can do that by going to Setup on Slingbox.com (http://setup.slingbox.com) on a desktop or laptop computer.

-Adds High Quality (HQ) streaming. To stream in High Quality (HQ) mode outside your home, you need at least 800 kbps of bandwidth from your Slingbox to your iPhone when using a Wi-Fi connection, and at least 500 kbps with a 3G connection. To see available bandwidth within SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone, tap the SQ button, then the Options button. The current bandwidth displays in the lower left corner. You can test your home upload speed by using a web site such as www.speedtest.net on your home computer; test download speed at your current location by using the free Speedtest iPhone app. The total bandwidth available to SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone is limited to whichever is smaller: the upload speed, or the current download speed. If you don't have enough bandwidth for HQ mode, you can improve your viewing experience by pressing the SQ button to stream in Standard Quality.

-Users with the Slingbox Classic, Tuner, AV, and PRO can stream with this update, but they can’t use the High Quality (HQ) video mode. Users with these Slingbox models can also continue to use SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone in Compatibility mode on the iPad.

-Adds the new Program Guide

You can purchase SlingPlayer Mobile from the App Store for $29.99
