TechFan #165 – WWDC 2014 and More

On June 6, 2014, in TechFan, by Tim Robertson

Tim and David discuss what WWDC means for Apple, rather than going over each new feature introduced this week. We also delve into how the announcements and new OS’s could have a profound impact on the home console market. All that, plus an email from John Nemo sparks a discussion on in-app purchasing and how Android and Window users are getting shafted by an OPEN system.

Apple’s January 19th education event brings the iPad to the forefront as an educational tool to replace textbooks and classroom computers.  Apple is once again focusing on the K-12 education market, a market it dominated in the early 1980’s with the Apple II.  But is the iPad really the device Apple is focusing on here?  Or is there another device in Apple’s future that this event is paving the way for?  I think Apple needs a new device, I call the ePad.

NuTouch Gloves Review

On January 23, 2012, in Features, Review, by Elisa Pacelli

NuTouch Gloves
Company: Newer Technology
Price: $19.99


I live in the Northeast region of the United States, where every winter, cold is a way of life. Using your iPhone or other smartphone outside is not a pleasant experience: either you’re unable to manipulate the screen with a gloved hand, or you need to remove your gloves to use the phone. Neither option is a good choice.

Enter NuTouch Gloves by Newer Technology, the perfect marriage of convenience and warmth.

iPad Theft, iTunes, and eBooks
TechFan #14

On January 14, 2011, in Podcast, TechFan, by Tim Robertson
Tim and David discuss adventures in catching iPad thieves. Or, more appropriately, Tim’s stupidity on said subject. iTunes turns ten years old, and we look back on a decade of ups and downs with the venerable software. Finally, Tim falls in love with Kindle! Or at least the software and book selection, and even has a ebook recommendation for you!

Review – Acme Made Hardback Folio

On September 1, 2010, in Cases, Review, by Elisa Pacelli

Hardback Folio and Hardback Folio DX
Company: Acme Made
Price: $39.99 US, DX $49.99 US
Product page

More and more people are reading on a Kindle. Just like an iPod and iPhone, a Kindle should be enclosed in a case. Acme Made has recently released the Hardback Folio, which is now my Kindle cover of choice.

If you are the kind of reader that needs room for a pen and paper within the case, keep looking. The Hardback Folio is simply a Kindle cover, no more or less. And it does its job superbly.

Review – ColcaSac Kindle Case

On May 18, 2010, in Review, by Elisa Pacelli

ColcaSac Kindle Case

Company: ColcaSac
Price: $34.95

I’m going to put it out there right at the start: the ColcaSac Kindle Sleeve isn’t the most attractive Kindle case out there. It’s not made of soft, fine leather, or have a fancy designer name. But is that what’s most important in protecting your precious Kindle?

ColcaSac is a company in Utah that makes handmade sleeves for Kindle, MacBook, iPhone and iPad. We spend a lot of money on our technology, so it’s important that it’s protected. My ColcaSac Kindle Case fit the bill nicely.

Reading on a Kindle versus an iPhone

On January 21, 2010, in iPhone, Opinion, by Elisa Pacelli

Happy New Year! Did you get a Kindle for the holidays? You did – how exciting! Did you know there is an iPhone Kindle app? No? Well, read on.

Amazon’s Kindle is just one of many choices in the growing e-book reader category. The Kindle comes in two flavors – the Kindle and the Kindle DX. The Kindle (the one I have) has a six inch display, can hold up to 1500 books, and as of press time retails for $259.

Can an iPhone Replace a Laptop on Vacation?

On October 26, 2009, in Apps, iPhone, Opinion, by Elisa Pacelli

Recently, my husband and I flew across the country to the Napa Valley for a vacation. I don’t usually bring a laptop with me, even though most hotels have wi-fi in the rooms. Going through airport security is just not worth the hassle. As a result, I end up spending many hours going through email, updating podcasts on iTunes, and checking web sites when I get home. This time, however, I had an iPhone. Would that be enough to keep me up-to-date and lessen my computer catch-up time when I got home?

The answer is an overwhelming YES!

Kindle Wireless Reading Device – Review

On February 29, 2008, in Review, by Roger Born

Kindle Wireless Reading Device
Company: Amazon

Price: $399.00


No, I wasn’t looking for one of these. Ebook (eBook? ebook?) readers have always been seriously lacking in both design and function, as well as services. Kindle seems to be different, however. Perhaps you should take a look too, because Steve Jobs may have been mistaken when he said that nobody reads anymore.

If you are looking for an iPhone or a media player, this is not the thing for you. You will be disappointed with Kindle if that is what you are expecting.
