Projector For Your iPod

The Tiniest Projector Ever Ideal For Your iPod

Texas Instruments has announced it’s making the tiniest projector ever created commercially available. Dubbed the Optoma Pico, the projector will be available next year with an insanely small DLP chip inside. While it’d be great to see the projector built into your cellphone, Optoma Pico will disappointingly remain a stand-alone mini projector. The product should be making its way to the United States in 2009 with a launch price under $300.

Travelistic is the YouTube for Travelers

Can’t afford that vacation this summer? Or maybe you’re just curious about a particular destination? Then check out Travelistic, a site that can be best described as the YouTube of worldwide destinations. The site has near 6,000 videos from around the world, most made by average folks around the world just like yourself. That is so much more authentic and practical than any tourist site you’ll fine online. And it’s free too. We can’t think of a better way to be get acquainted with other locations.

ESPN Ultimate Remote is shipping!

ESPN Ultimate Remote is now shipping, inexplicable packaging comes free

1B3C8667-01F3-4069-B0DA-C13A649C51A3.jpgJust in time for Father’s Day, ESPN’s tvCompass-built WiFi Ultimate Remote is finally available, and rapidly making its way into the awaiting, Cheeto-stained fingertips of a couch potato near you. It still costs $300, and with a good number of laptops retailing for that price these days, it’s certainly hard to justify, but forget all that… who on earth thought this packaging was a good idea? It kind of looks like a dumbell, but not. We’re really at a loss for words here. It’s almost like ESPN wants to fail.

Only $299 get it HERE

Turn your iPhone into a remote

Signal turns your iPhone/iPod Touch into remote

The developers over at Alloysoft have officially unveiled their new iTunes remote app.  Signal can turn your iPhone, iPod Touch, or Pocket PC into an advanced remote control for your computer, and functionality isn’t limited to iTunes. Working on either a Mac or a PC, this program gives the user the ability to scroll through libraries and browse supported apps remotely. The following is from a MacNN report

“Taking full advantage of the iPhone and iPod Touch’s two-way wireless capabilities, and combined with the increasing popularity of streaming solutions such as Apple’s Airport Express, Alloysoft claims that Signal is the missing link in many home juke box solutions, allowing users access to their music from anywhere within wireless range, be it “deck, patio, or any room in the house.”

Signal works in a very simple way; when you launch the computer version of the app, you are given a URL which you then put in to MobileSafari and voilà!.  You can now have full control over your music from anywhere within Wifi range!

Signal is available now at the Alloysoft website for $25.

Creative’s Vado camera $100

Creative hops bandwagon with Vado camera

B882E326-D5B2-4996-8992-631B79A646B1.jpgCreative today took a cue from the unusually successful Flip camera and launched the Vado. The company promises an improvement on the concept of an ultra-simple, YouTube-oriented video recorder with a design it says is both thinner and lighter than its rival and gives the camera 2GB of built-in flash memory.

This gives the Vado up to two hours of recording time at its native 640×480 resolution, Creative says. Built-in software can help streamline uploads either to YouTube or Photobucket, though the use of MPEG-4 allows common video editing software to edit captured footage.

Like the Flip, the Vado has no optical zoom and eschews the need for separate cables, hooking up to a computer through a swivel-out USB connector that also recharges the camera.

The device is also one of Creative’s few explicitly Mac-compatible offerings and works with any Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later system as well as most modern Windows PCs. Versions ship in pink or silver at $100, with options for a carrying case ($15), extra battery packs ($15), a charging cradle ($30), and an AV-out cable ($10). Both the camera and the accessories should be available today.

Iron Man – A Must See

8288A5D8-7140-49F6-A6B6-FB0DC553BA4F.jpgWent to Iron Man last night, four words:

Loved it, See it!

Robert Downey Jr. was great as Tony Stark / Iron man.
The rest of the cast was very good as well – Terrence Howard, Jeff Bridges and Gwyneth Paltrow.

I would have to say it is the BEST super Hero movie I have seen, since Superman when I was nine.
