With wireless Apple toys in abundance; Magic Mouse, Keyboards and now the Magic Trackpad it seems to make sense that Apple takes a dive into the rechargeable battery business. Apple claims that their rechargeable batteries have a lifespan of up to 10 years and hold a charge “for an incredibly long time”.
I must admit that I don’t really follow the rechargeable battery industry aside from my mothers freezer technique. But I must say this product will have me do some spec and price comparison and eventually lead to a purchase.
You know what? It’s been a while since they have put out a Star Wars sequel and Mr. Vader may be having some cash flow issues. This afternoon Darth decided to waltz into a Long Island, NY bank and show them who’s daddy. I surely hope he gets back on his feet.
I couldn’t make this up if I tried. For $230, this rolling watermelon cooler will be the life of the BBQ or day on the beach. It’s manufactured by, JoyBond, a company in Japan which is not so surprising due to the high cost of fruit there yonder.
In iOS 4.0 if you receive an email that says “tomorrow night” Apple has now made it easy as pie to create an event for that “tomorrow night” engagement. I am guessing that a “tomorrow afternoon” or “tomorrow morning” will result in the same prompt.
When clicking on the actionable link, a popup titled “Create Event” appears. This results in a calendar entry for the next night beginning at 8:00pm.
It’s the small things like this that make Apple products stand out from the pack.
Ate breakfast, house hunted, explored Rutgers, watched Iron Man 2 and ate Chipotle.
Well look here..on my regular hourly quest to see what iPad apps have been updated I was pleasantly greeted with a “Dropbox has added iPad support”
Up until now I was using the iPhone version on my iPad which was not the best experience ever. After a few minutes of using the iPad version I must say that it does the job but still has a lot of catching up to do when factoring all of the functionality that apps such as GoodReader have produced. Still, this is very worth the update or fresh download.

This is the first installment of the daily tech review from theurbangeek.com – I’ll recap some of the biggest stories in tech that occur each day. This should be interesting…..
Well, lookie lookie here. After all of the speculation and rumors this seems to be the real deal. The phone fell into the hands of Gizmodo today and they have confirmed that all of the internals are indeed Apple branded and manufactured. I think its a pretty bold design on Apple’s part but I do expect the exposed seems and edges to be refined prior to Apples official release.
As far as I know, this is the first time that an iPhone OS has provided the capability of opening documents outside of it’s default applications. GoodReader’s latest update, 2.7.4, has just set the bar for other applications within the iPad document reading space. Users now have the ability to be in an application like Mail and open attachments inside of GoodReader. This can be accomplished either by tapping the attachment, or pressing it down for a about 2 seconds and selecting your desired application. As of right now GoodReader is the only app of its kind. Definitely worth the your George Washington.
