mobilemag_rippols

I had a chance to speak with Michael Kelly, the co-founder of Rippol.com - a video suggestion engine in the form of an online community. Rippol allows people to suggest, find and ultimately discover and watch videos in whatever genre they choose. Rippol is in beta stage, but Kelly wanted to show us the Web-based app (which also has a mobile version for the iPad and iPhone) and we put it through its paces.

At this annual event - as you saw in my recent show overview - I was bombarded by vendors at every turn and played with more gadgets than I’ve ever seen in my life.

microSD makes a play for music – via SanDisk

slotmusic

The thumbnail-sized microSD card always strikes me as a recipe for lost data. A breeze, a bump on the train, a fumble when loading could all result in that micro flash card disappearing forever. So when I got the ABBA Gold player pack from SanDisk (or should I say Sansa), I was worried that if I ever tried to remove ...

Enter the Neat Company’s line of personal and business ...
