Logic3’s Compact LCD ProDock for iPod and iPhone Packs a Punch

Logic 3 has been a leader in the UK speaker market for some time now, but with the LCD ProDock they’ve really outdone themselves and produced a compact dock that packs a punch and looks absolutely gorgeous too.

Review: Krypton iPhone/iPod Touch Screen Armor

Krypton Screen Armor for iPhones The Geeks received some Krypton Products a couple months ago then put the products to real world testing. This review concentrates on the Krypton iPhone Screen Armor.

In each Screen Armor box you receive two films, a microfiber cloth, a Krypton Sticky (to remove pesky air bubbles) and an Application Card to apply the screen armor to the screen. As you can see from the picture (taken by Gadget Girl Photos), Krypton Products have several screen armor versions for the iPhone Ultra-Clear, Anti-Glare, Mirror and 360 Privacy with different film versions. The film names speak for themselves. For example, the Anti-Glare screen removes the glare from direct light whereas the Ultra-Clear film is transparent.

Deck the Halls with Cell Phones and iPods?

iPod Christmas Ornament Walking through my local Target the other day, my husband, my daughter and I decided to meander through the Christmas area that is tucked away in the back corner of the store. It is seriously hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is less than two months away.

My daughter and I slowly looked through the rows of sparkling glass ornaments. She is four years old and completely giddy with excitement that Santa’s visit is just weeks away. There were the typical snowmen, reindeer and Santa Clauses lining the walls. Then we looked through the assortment of Doras, Spongebobs and Disney princesses. And then out of the corner of my eye, I spotted some cell phone and iPod glass ornaments. I let out a little chuckle because this certainly demonstrates how tech-focused our society really is today.

Cellphone Christmas Ornament I didn’t purchase the cell phone or iPod ornament for my tree that day. Though, I think I will go back and buy them now. Every year, my tree is filled with ornaments that reflect the personalities, hobbies and memories of my family. And I live in a house of gizmo nuts. My husband and my daughter argue over who gets to use the one iPad. So, I think my tree should reflect that gizmo-mania. Don’t you?

So, deck the halls with cell phones and iPods? Sure. Why not? I’ll just stick the cellphone ornament next to the one of Princess Leia in the gold bikini. And let me just tell you, the Princess Leia one doesn’t belong to my daughter.

New CD Ripping Service From Rip2iPod

CD Ripper ServiceToday Rip2iPod opened their doors to offer a CD ripping service where they convert your CD collection into a digital library. Granted, they are a little late to the game, but hey “better late then never,” right?

The CD ripping process is nothing new and not much has changed over the years on how it’s done. Same old stuff….put the disc in, start ripping, wait 6 minutes add the songs to iTunes. It is still an arduous task given all the technology we have – not in the sense of difficulty, but in the amount of time required.

Consider this: The average CD collection is 250 CDs. The average iPod [or similar] owner has less then 5% of their CD collection ripped into MP3s. Here is why: Ripping the average CD collection of 250 discs takes about 20 hours of work. That’s 20 straight, none-stop, hours. Obviously no one will pull an all-nighter to rip music, but even breaking that up over a several days will easily translate into a couple weeks worth of time. Who wants to deal with that?…and thus your 5%.

Joby Gorillapod Magentic Flexible Tripod

The Joby Gorillapod has gone magnetic with this tripod, and this geek has but one word… “BRILLIANT!” I have an original Gorillapod and love it, but sometimes I could see it being easier to attach the Gorillapod magnetically rather than my old fashioned way of placing it on something in standard fashion or wrapping the legs around some object like a dog in heat.

This Gorillapod has the same features as the original, including the quick release for the camera, except with a magnetic personality.

Rē App turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a Universal Remote Control

Re Universal Remote iPhone app/accessoryThe NewKinetix Rē iPhone accessory together with the Rē App turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a Universal Remote Control. If you haven’t gotten a decent universal remote (like the Logitech Harmony), then consider outfitting your iPhone.

The accessory plugs into your iPhone’s connector and the Rē App (free download from the App Store) makes setup easy with its database of IR codes so you don’t need to manually program it based on your other remotes. The app allows for macros so you for example, program one-button for turning on the TV, cable box, and DVR all in one go.

Maintain favorite lists, channels and take your universal remote anywhere you go.
