Nobody can argue the recent popularity and publicity surrounding Christopher Nolan’s final installment of the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. While reviews about the film and its characters may be mixed, it’s hard to say that the merchandising of Batman-related products hasn’t been a success. Mimoco has just added the characters of Batman and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises to its popular line of character-themed USB 2.0 flash memory drives.

WorldCard Mobile – Business Card Reader & Scanner
App Developer: Penpower Inc.
Version Reviewed: 4.0.0
License: US$6.99

In today’s high tech world, it is surprising to see just how many businesses still use the humble business card to exchange contact information.

During and prior to the 1980s, business cards were added to Rolodex systems, and by the 1990s personal assistants were frantically entering relevant information into database applications, such as FileMaker Pro. The millennium brought about the business card scanner, and until recently, not much has changed.

With the coming of smart phone and tablet devices, the traditional style business cards can now be easily entered in seconds into apps such as WorldCard Mobile.

WorldCard Mobile exceeds the usability of the traditional business card by the way it allows users to import and modify information.

iStreamer
Company: HRT

Price: $199.99

I must admit it, I am a big cynic. I have seen so many advertising and marketing claims about self-proclaimed great products that turn out to be just outright lies and misrepresentations, I have a hard time believing such pitches any more. So when HRT (High Resolution Technologies, Los Angeles, CA.) talked about their iStreamer at the last Macworld | iWorld conference, I just rolled my eyes in disbelief.

I connect my iPhone and iPodTouch to my rather high-end audio system all the time with a simple headphone jack to RCA stereo cable, and for the most part, it sounds fine. Yet, here was this company telling me that I was not getting the full experience of my music from my iOS device. Really? Just how so? So when I was given the chance to borrow an iStreamer unit and test it, I jumped at the chance. I was ready to prove them wrong.

iLuv Products Review

On July 12, 2012, in Review, by Elisa Pacelli

Portable Speaker for MP3 Players and iPod
Company: iLuv
Model: iSP100
Price: $24.99 (a little less on Amazon at press time)

If I’m driving more than 15 minutes I like to listen to podcasts on my iPhone. However, I don’t have a USB or auxiliary port in my car, therefore I need to attach a speaker to my phone. The speaker I used to use wasn’t loud enough, so I was very happy to have the opportunity to review the iLuv Portable Speaker for MP3 Players and iPod.

The iLuv Portable Speaker for MP3 Players and iPod (iLuv PS) is small enough to carry in a purse, bag, or backpack, but has surprisingly good sound. Granted, it’s not going to replace a stereo speaker system, but for casual listening in the car or by the pool, it’s a good choice.
