Using an iPad, Tonebridge, Tabs, and iRig Stomp when Playing Your Guitar

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSIf you’ve played guitar, you’ve seen other’s guitar pedal rigs. A big box filled with pedals and power cords so they can get the right sound for a song.

You can then play your guitar and make it sound as close to the actual artist as possible. My guitar setup Simply put, I have an iPad Pro 10.5 (2017 model). Inside are two apps: Tonebridge, and Tabs.

Apple Beats: What is Tim Cook-ing up at Apple?

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Last week I was in New York for TechCrunch Disrupt. I got some great videos and tons of awesome footage of Times Square. However, when I returned my back decided to rebel from carrying 40 lbs throughout the city. Its been a tough weekend of recouping.

Day 2: Don’t Have to Pull Anything Out of my Pockets – Ford SYNC

So I walk to the car, press a button and open the door. I press the brake and push the start button – The car starts. Pretty cool. As long as I have that FAB, I feel like I don’t have to lock the car. Maybe I can get a car that looks like an orange Charger where I can weld the doors shut… So anyway, I’m driving down the road and I get a call from my brother.

I didn’t have to take a thing out of my pocket. With my vehicle, if I wanted to do that, I had to take the phone out and plug it into the audio cable. I still...

Lexware Labs Sleep Cycle: Can I Learn, Sleep Better?

Apparently there is a new iPhone application out there that lets me monitor my sleep cycle by simply sleeping with the iPhone at the corner of the bed. The application is called Sleep Cycle by Lexware Labs. It is currently a $0.99 app in the iTunes store as an introductory offer. The application is simple: Set the alarm for your wake time. For me, I don’t usually set an alarm – When I want to get up, I wake up. Nonetheless, I did setup the alarm for testing sake. I set the iPhone on the corner of the bed. They say you need to plug in the device to maintain power, but I am not ready to sleep with 115 Volts sitting by my head just yet. I had the phone charged up, so I left the cable on the computer. It did go through about 50-60% of...

A Flood of iApps? 1

A Flood of iApps?

Bloomberg considers the effect of the new Apple iPhone OS 3.0 on the apps store and predicts more apps and fiercer competition amongst developers. Read the full story here. See the apps store here. Now, I do not have an iPhone and wouldn’t get one on a bet. I don’t like Apple’s walled garden. (Heck, if I had my way, I’d ditch my son’s iPod, just to get iTunes off the Windows box.)

Castgrabber – Geekazine Video Review

This week’s review is for the CastGrabber – an internet appliance that takes valid RSS feeds and uploads podcasts to your MP3 player. This video shows you a little about how the CastGrabber works. I also talk about the good and the bad – well, more of a wishlist to this Standalone Podcast downloader. One great feature of the CastGrabber is the fact you can connect most any type of MP3 player and get your podcasts. I connected an iPod, then a couple different generic MP3 players. Even my 64 Meg Creative MP3 player from 2002 worked like a champ! Price tag may be a bit much and I wished it had not only wireless, but some other items I talk about in the video. Nonetheless, it’s a great “Set it and forget it” type of item. Here is the video review for the Cast Grabber.

Love or Hate the iPhone – Where Do You Stand? 1

Love or Hate the iPhone – Where Do You Stand?

It’s been a year and a few months since the first iPhone was sold. Since the release of the 3G model, I’ve been seeing people with iPhones I would have never expected have one. The iPhone has brought up a new way to use the internet, the phone and a computer. Apple is under a lot of scrutiny: AT&T being the sole carrier, the Apps store program take downs and the 3G services being poor. Yet the iPhone still is the 2nd best selling phone behind the Motorola RAZR. Apple itself is set to continue through these tough times. There has been a lot of good and bad said about the iPhone. I have seen a lot of Forum posts, even more twitters and more. I decided to go ahead and ask a small group of people over at Help A Reporter what their thoughts were. I asked...

It also marks the 8 year anniversary on Oct 23rd as the iPod v1 was first released. Of course since then the iPod has grown to many flavors in itself – the iPod touch and iPod nano.

During the “Weekend Update” he dressed up to look like an old man and sit there telling the Kids: “Back in my day…” He would always end the line with being bloody and beat up and “WEEEE LOVED IT!”. This week I was asked the question: Will the student now using a Mac be able to adapt to a PC environment in the workforce? I said Yes and went on with my college story: I used a MAC until 1995. After that, it was a PC until 2005 when I learned Mac environments for work. But even the Windows or Mac of 1998 is not the same of 2008. It really begs the question: What will the machines of 2018 look like?
