Many of us live and work in areas with many available wireless networks, or cannot get a full strength signal from our networks for whatever reason. While AirPort reception on modern desktop and portable Macs is excellent, and getting better with each generation, sometimes we just need better reception. There are solutions that include disassembling […]
If you enjoy running, biking, or snowboarding, you’ve probably brought along your iPod to keep the energy flowing and have realized that reaching into your pockets to fumble with your iPod to change songs can be tricky (not to mention dangerous). The Quiver aims to eliminate this hassle, sporting a simple yet ingenious design that […]
I’ve written time and time again about how I love screen real estate. I use a high-resolution 17-inch MacBook Pro and a 23-inch Cinema Display, but still want more space. Unfortunately, no Apple laptop has built-in support for more than one external display. When I heard about a USB to DVI adapter I was skeptical […]
The iPhone has proven to be another game-changing product for Apple; it’s hitting record sales numbers and has helped usher in a new era of portable computing. It’s amazing that we have essentially the same functionality of our old desktop computers, now in a pocketable size and touch-screen smart phone. Everything from web browsing, emailing, […]

A simultaneous comparison of video from the iPod nano and the Flip minoHD. We basically put them side by side and hit record. The Flip has a 1280 × 720 aspect ratio vs 640 × 480 on the iPod nano. We’ll post the iPod nano file by itself shortly. Of course these videos are ultra-compressed […]
This day in age a vast majority of us have iPods–and now many of you have iPhones. As much as we love our gadgets, it can sometimes be a pain to charge one at a time, so which one do you pick?
Leave it to Griffin Technology to solve that issue–one that I am surprised was not figured out sooner! The “PowerDock 2 Charging Cradle for iPod and iPhone”:http://www.smalldog.com/product/73013 will let you charge two iPhones, two iPods or an iPod and an iPhone at once! It can sit on your desk, beside, by the front door, wherever you will remember to charge it. This gadget won’t hook up to your Mac–it has no ports other than the AC on the back–but I like the fact that you don’t have to have everything plugged into your Mac at all times.
I also like the “Griffin PowerDock 2”:http://www.smalldog.com/product/73013 because the thought of having my iPod or iPhone in the dock is more calming to me than just leaving my Apple gadget on the desk (in case it fell off–iPhone screen replacements are expensive!). A $39.99 price point seems fair to charge your devices to me! Most single iPod/iPhone chargers are about $19.99-$29.99 and this way you don’t have to worry about buying a sync cable as well. It’s also made out of brushed aluminum, which matches the MacBook Pros and iMacs very nicely (which is obviously super important!).

The RapCap is featured in a video review over at Butterscotch.com They say “where other digital audio players come with a built-in microphone for recording quick voice memos or to save a college lecture for posterity (and subsequent sharing with friends who couldn’t seem to separate head from pillow that morning), the iPod offers no […]

I have always been a fan of things that fell off the funky truck—i.e. bright colors—and make a statement. The new Purple and Red Skullcandy Smokin’ Buds with a built-in mic definitely fit into my lifestyle, and they actually make me think of a nice pair of Nike Dunks. The Smokin’ Buds line by Skullcandy […]
