Wal-Mart Selling the iPhone Confirmed

8 12 2008

10-15-07-iphone1It has been confirmed that Wal-Mart will sell the iPhone towards the end of December, but it is still unknown whether Apple will sell the previous iPhone for $99. Employees in many Wal-Mart stores are going through training detailing how they are supposed to sell the iPhone. In a note on december fifth Shaw Wu, an analyst for Kaufman Brothers in San Francisco, said “One of the key things Apple needs to do to drive broader iPhone adoption is to build a more complete product line” with low- end, mid-range and high-end products. So Shaw Wu is basically saying that Apple needs to make a low-budget iPhone, a standard iPhone, and then the high end iPhone. Just as Apple did with the iPods you got the Shuffle, Nano, Video, and Touch. As of right now I don’t have an iPhone, but if it’s going to cost $100 I know I will be getting one. Would you? Comment.

The tech way to pop the big question

7 12 2008

If you get to the point you are going to propose and you feel a desire to make it a bit different….This box, which sets you back somewhere between $100 and $250 depending on the bells and whistles you choose, can even pop the queston for you, with photos, audio and video.  Don’t worry if you can’t keep it short, it holds up to an hour of video. Just make sure you upload the right file.

Naturally, you want rings that fit the box they came in and although you might be pushing it a bit, this set could be just the thing for $340.

Apple has released another software update for the iPhone, iPhone 2.2. Among other things, the updated OS features Google Street View and streaming podcasts via WIFI or your data plan. I have already tried it out, and both new features work fantastically. I have been waiting for real streaming podcasts for months, so this update is something I have realy been looking forward to. Thus far iPhone users have had to use other podcast solutions which were incomplete and far inferior. Now if we could only see a copy & paste option!

Strategic Assault for the iPhone

12 11 2008

sascreen1A new game by the name of Strategic Assault recently saw its iPhone debut. It may be the first real time strategy game published on the iPhone platform, but is it really all that great?

Strategic Assault has very similar feel to that of the Command & Conquer series. You can create a variety of little fighters like tanks, jeeps, and helicopters with which you capture resources.  As in most RTS games your ultimate goal is to hunt down the opposition with a squad of your finest men…or whatever troops you can afford anyways.

Those of you new to Strategic Assault may marvel over it, what with the four out of five star rating it holds, but it really is an antique. I first played Strategic Assault over five years ago on my Palm M100 which had a 16 MHz processor and 8MB of ram/storage. Read the rest of this entry »

PC to Mac the Easy Way

12 11 2008

There may be many ways to transfer your files from a PC to a Mac, but most can be pretty hard to do for the average person. Well not anymore, because Belkin has made a Switch-to-Mac Cable that allows you to move music, movies, photos, and Internet preferences to your new Mac with ease. All you have to do is plug one end of the USB into your Mac and the other end into your PC. After that it automatically takes your files and transfers them to your Mac. The Switch-to-Mac Cable will be out soon for around $50. A 2008 Needham report shows that Macintosh sales have tripled in the past 3 years and by 2017 Apple will sell 40 million Macs at the rate their going, so it would seem that Belkin has chosen a great time to unveil their cable.
