3D Comes to the iPhone with the Hasbro My3D

I’ve finally found an accessory for my iPhone 4 that i just can’t live without. The mega toy company Hasbro have unveiled a 3D viewer that’s designed for Apple’s second, third, and fourth generation iPod touch, iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4. As soon as I found out about it I ran to my local Target (its exclusively sold there, coming to a different store near you in June!) and patiently waited for the sales guy to unpack the boxes. Needless to say I was the first person to buy one from that store. Read the rest of this entry »

Mouse Acceleration in OS X

Mouse accelerationI have a second hand MacBook but I don’t use it much, main reason is that I hate the track pad and when I use a mouse with it it ‘feels’ wrong. Hard to describe just what it is but it’s like the cursor is just not moving the right way. I did find a little tool that has helped but I’m still a little put off by the whole feel of the mouse. Maybe this will help you if you are also suffering from ‘odd mouse’ syndrome.

The Classic Macintosh iPad Stand

A classic Mac used to house iPad

A clever hack that combines a Mac Classic with a brand spanking new Apple iPad. No, the Mac Classic no longer works after this hack but you have to admit that it’s better than leaving to molder on a closet shelf somewhere.

The Awesome Beauty of Time Lapse DSLR video…

Stomacher – Untitled/Dark Divider from Sean Stiegemeier on Vimeo.

Using well over 20,000 photos (most are three photo high dynamic range composites) photographer Sean Stiegemeier used the motorized head from a telescope (broke two doing the entire video) to create these beautiful motion control shots for this music video. The video for the band “Stomacher” was shot on Canon 5D, 5DmkII, Anamorphic 35mm. I hope to have more information about this video in the future. Make sure you see the high def version of the video!

My thoughts on the Apple iPad

Apple iPad - Photo from AppleIt’s the long awaited tablet from Apple, the iPad. I figured it would be called the ‘iSlate’ or the ‘iTablet’ but I guess that’s why I don’t get paid to predict such things. So, this being a tech blog I figured I should say a few things about it. Why not, other people do on their blogs.

First, I doubt that iPad will be merged with the Mac laptop line. I can see them eliminating the low end laptop but only if sales started to fall for those units. Maybe the Air will be retired because of the iPad, not sure. I’d have to see the sales numbers on the laptops to make any further observations on that.
