iPhone Gets Streaming Music From Your Home Computer For Free

iGunCon App turns iPhone 4 into gun for iPad 2 Time Crisis

Easily one of my favorite arcade games of all time is Time Crisis.

JBL OnStage IV and Micro III iPhone speaker dock is like a flower

A pair of new iPod sound systems from JBL use a new design to create a “surround sound” experience. The On Stage IV and On Stage Micro III have speakers in a strange kind of rotating flower petal layout, this I would assume emits sound at multiple angles providing you with a good listening experience from anywhere. It’s going to work with your iPhone as well, and any other device you can hook up to the aux jack in the back.

Review: DryCase keeps your beats going underwater

Hot fun in the summer, oh yah. DryCorp sent us one of their mp3 player cases to check out. It fit quite right with the Apple iPod. I’m still kickin’ it to my 3G model, hence the dated looking thing sealed and protected inside the dry case which helps it evade a nasty inevitable liquid death quite common in the summer months. You can take it in the pool, river, or the shower, the dry case is designed to keep your gear happy in the water.

Acer surprise: 7-inch Android tablet

Leading up to Computex Taipei next week, Acer decided to host a little shindig to show off its LumiRead e-book reader. This sounded like yet another Kindle alternative, but then Acer CEO Gianfranco Lanci appeared on the stage with something quite different.

Yes, the regular e-book reader was there, but the device in Lanci’s hands was anything but “just another Kindle clone.” In fact, what he held was an unannounced Acer powered Google Android tablet. Even Lanci himself called it a tablet.

Apple iPad review: The future is in your hands

Apple’s mysterious new “magical” device has created a big stir across the world. What are we supposed to do with this thing? Is it going to replace my desktop? Probably not. How about my laptop or netbook? Still no. So what is it good for? Well, that’s the magic of it. It does many things, but it’s not here to step on anyone’s toes.

The name iPad is strangely clever. It probably took Apple an entire 5 minutes to come up with the name. It’s clearly not a notebook computer, and we already have the iBook. How about that other relative, the notepad. Ideas went around, and voila – Apple’s latest thing is the iPad. Names aside, what the heck is this thing good for anyways? What am I supposed to do with this iPad?

Chart Flurry
Google Nexus One smartphone struggles

The results of the smartphone sales race are in. Running the numbers and looking at the charts with Nexus One’s sales figures, things do look a little “slow” off the start for Google. But CEOEric Schmidt’s reports back in February show otherwise.

The Google HTC Nexus One has sold 135,000 units directly from Google since the phone was first launched. During this time period, Verizon sold 1.05 million Android phones while Apple continues to keep pace in the market by selling 1 million units of their original iPhone. The iPhone 3GS continued its market dominance by selling 1.6 million devices in just one week. Apple’s superstar has no reason to slow down and with a new revamped iPhone 4G on the horizon for its loyal customers, one can only assume a continued bright future.

iPhone 4G, rumors, specs, what will it be? Here it is.

Now that the iPad has been unveiled to the public and in the hands of an elite few, what more speculation can we conjure about those crazy kids at Cupertino? It just so happens that I got a call from Aaron Vronko at Rapid Repair. As the service manager, Aaron and his team dissect roughly 500 iPhones and iPods per week. Who better to speak on mythical Apple products than someone who rips their guts out all day?
