Apple iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter Review


iPad VGA adapter

This is what it looks like hooked to your iPad

Having moved recently into my new place, a decision was made not to get cable TV. I’d hardly watched any programs anymore, and most of the shows that I do watch is available to me online the next day.

One thing I didn’t get rid of is the internet. In this case,  I own an iPad and I like using it alot and in many ways it has replaced my laptop when it comes to quick browsing.

The internet is full of flash based websites. Games, animations, applications, and interactive sites are created in a rich media that is visually stunning with endless possibilities for designers. Flash is rising in popularity and continues to grow now that it’s under Adobe.

Apple is clamping down on their support for Flash. The claim it’s due to security reasons that Adobe has to fix in their Flash product.

I think that’s bullshit. and here’s why Read more of this post

iPhones and Hot Dogs


Delicious

Another opportunity for Apple to make a gazillion-billion dollars.

I was reading about how South Koreans figured out that a type of sausage can be used as a stylus for their iPhones. (South Korean iPhone users turn to Sausages as cold weather ‘meat stylus’)

How that came about, I don’t know, but it’s like slapping a hot dog on your phone and using it as a stylus. Now there’s a bunch of South Korean iPhone owners who smell like sausages after using this stylus on their phone then chatting away with their friends. Read more of this post
