Essential Apple Tech For Your Home

Over the last ten years, the name Apple has become synonymous with high quality design and functionality. The company has produced some of the defining technology of modern times and has changed how the world interacts with gadgets. Apple products are omnipresent in many homes and can be used to create an intuitive and easily controllable home entertainment system.

While Apple Macs have always had a loyal following, the company first made serious inroads into the consciousness of the wider public with the iPod. The MP3 players were so successful because of their striking design and simplicity. The next major innovation came in the form of the iPhone and, most recently the iPad. These devices allow users to access huge amounts of music and media with ease. They become even more useful when used as part of a home entertainment system.

iWave

It’s now possible to purchase a sofa with iWave installed directly within it. The iWave technology allows Apple fans to plug their iPhones and iPods into the sofa and enjoy listening to music in high quality via integrated speakers. The technology can also connect to music wirelessly through a Bluetooth connection, meaning it’s more convenient than ever before to listen to audio in the home. The sofa includes dedicated controls to ensure that changing tracks and pausing songs is simple. The stylish sofa can also be reclined using the touchscreen control pad, making it the ultimate piece of furniture to relax in after work. If individuals would like to enjoy a cold drink while listening to music or watching TV, they can take full advantage of the sofa’s cup holders, which have a cooling function inbuilt. The sofa is also great for relaxing and browsing the Internet while using an iPad.

Any sofa that includes iWave will naturally become the center of a connected Apple household. The technology offers a simple way for users to combine and exploit their Apple products to maximum effect. The iWave system makes it easy to control music playback at any time. Putting on a favorite soundtrack for a dinner party or catching up with a podcast is easy thanks to the innovative technology. The sofas offer extensive connectivity options, and users can even play music directly from a USB stick, SD card or alternative MP3 player.

Apple TV

Sometimes family members want to turn off the music and simply kick back and relax in front of their favorite TV program. Apple TV is an essential piece of home tech that facilitates this. The small box allows users to stream content from the Internet, iTunes and YouTube as well as a variety of other sources. Individuals can also access any content that they have stored on a PC or Mac. This allows users to enjoy television, films and photos on a large screen, all from the comfort of the sofa. Apple TV offers HD playback and is an important component in the complete Apple entertainment system.

Optimizing a home to make effective use of Apple technology can help anyone improve their downtime by providing seamless performance and extra control over media.

Best Screen Protector for iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 has been selling like hot cakes and since the new iPhone has a radical change in its size along with a brand new data port, the need for completely new accessories is evident.

Accessory makes from all around the world had already started manufacturing months before the actual iPhone 5 launch. So a lot of accessories are ready for shipping!

Screen Guards/Scratch Guards are some of the must have accessory for any iPhone owner.

A lot of people might not know that apart from scratch protection, the most biggest advantage of a screen guard is that it makes the screen highly resistant to getting shattered in case of a fall.

The iPhone 5 has a bigger screen and having a screen protector makes sense. There are literally 100s of brands out there selling screen protectors, some very famous like Zagg or the SGP GLAS.t.

What I’d personally recommend is instead of spending $25+ on these hyped-up screen protectors,  buy cheap screen guards which usually come in a pack of 3/6/9 for as low as $2 and do a darn good job!

Check out some of these links for buying a screen protector:

Apple’s New Headphones – A Short Overview

iPhone 5 launch is just around the corner. The internet is buzzing with new leaks about the iPhone 5 almost every day.

Today a new video has surfaced, which shows the supposedly new design of the Headphones which are to be bundled with the next iPhone.

As you can see from the image above, the design seems pretty unique and straight out of a sci-fi flick!

What’s interesting is the fact that it seems to have individual microphones on the ear buds itself. And I’m pretty sure this means theres some advanced active noise cancellation being implemented.

For those who are unaware, Here’s some short info about noise cancellation headphones from Wiki:

Noise-cancelling headphones are headphones that reduce unwanted ambient sounds (i.e., acoustic noise) by means of active noise control (ANC). This involves using one or more microphones placed near the ear, and electronic circuitry which uses the microphone signal to generate an “antinoise” signal. When the antinoise signal is produced by the speaker driver in the headphone, destructive interference cancels out the ambient noise as heard within the enclosed volume of the headphone.

We might just see a paradigm shift in earphone technology. Sure there are plenty of active noise cancellation based headphones out there, but those cost a bomb!

Now Make Motion Videos On iPhone With Glidetrack Mobislyder

One film technique that separates the pros from the amateurs is the tracking or dolly shot. With a tracking shot, the camera moves along a track, providing a sense of motion that isn’t possible with a static camera. Glidetrack pioneered a portable camera slider (AKA track) in 2008, and now the company is taking pre-orders for a relatively inexpensive (US$135 introductory price) device called the mobislyder that’s designed for shooting video with the iPhone, iPod touch, and other small cameras.

iHub 2: Quick review and pics

MIC Gadgets is a China based company, famous for their high quality Apple knockoffs and accessories. Their latest knockoff was an improved version of their previously famous accessory called iHub.

The iHub 2 was taken down by Apple within a day of its launch, but MIC Store managed to sell all of the available units before that.

They promised their customers that inspite of a cease production notice from Apple, they will ship out the iHub to those customers who have already made the purchase.

I was one of those few(500) lucky ones to order the White iHub. I received my iHub today and I have to say the build quality is pretty solid and it looks fantastic! Almost feels like an original accessory from Apple itself!

It connects to any Mac/PC via a USB to MicroUSB cable and has 4 USB Ports for use.
