iPad and iPhone Interaction

I'm sure everyone has seen how iPad scrabble works, but check out this video of a racing app which uses your iPad as the race track and your iPhone as a steering wheel! Awesome!

An Interesting View of the iPad

I read a surprisingly fresh article about the iPad and why this author thinks it will be so successful, and it even includes a little bit of Apple history. After reading it, I just had to share it with all of you.

Check it out here!

My hilarious mum plays an iPhone game.

Oh my mum is hilarious...I just couldn't resist filming her while she was playing Labyrinth 2 on my iPhone! Does anyone else have a mum who screams and shouts while playing games?

A fun Thing to do on the train

I've noticed on my daily commute to work that the iPhone and iPod
touch have become among the most popular train buddies anyone could
have. Something fun my girlfriend and I started doing was trying to
count how many iPhones or iPod touches we could see on our train, or
if we were waiting near the entrance of a train station, the number of
people who walk past with such a device. It's the 21st century zinch

I can only see 6 others this morning but I've only scanned the door
area and the visible part of the upstairs compartment.

iPad launches in America!! + The Apple Experience

After watching, it just makes me want the iPad that much more...=[

Wow...and I thought I was excited about Apple products. This girl is can't control her excitement and anticipation as she waits in line for her iPad on launch day. It's amazing also how enthusiastic all the Apple Store workers are about product launches and I guess that makes for one happy customer! Little things like this just keep re-affirming the fact that Apple looks after it's customers. I myself have had and heard a few stories.

Story #1:
I myself had a very substantial experience with Apple's over the phone customer support when I bought my original iMac 20 inch late 2008 refurbished model. It had some RAM problems and kept constantly restarting. I called up 2 days later and informed them of the problem and they said they'd pick it up the next day and give me a full refund.

Happy with my service and level of care, I decided to get the 24 inch model instead. Apple always does free shipping and uses TNT couriers so it usually arrives the next day, quick and painless. It could have easily ended up in tears for me and one unhappy customer for Apple, but the way they treat their customers is hard to find in any other computer company.

Everything was resolved very very quickly and I was extremely impressed. Shopping with Apple is as simple and convenient as their products.

Story #2
My girlfriend's iPod headsets died and she wanted to replace them so she went to the Apple Store...she walked out 2 minutes later with new earphones in hand, not needing to show any evidence of purchase. Lovely.

Story #3
My boss's iMac started blowing smoke one day and so he called up Apple support. His area is a bit prone to electrical surges as there has been a history of appliances dying (and even an electrical outlet blowing up). At the time, his iMac wasn't plugged into his electrical surge-proof power board, but he switched it around, because when the Apple technician came to inspect it, he frowned in puzzlement, and approved a replacement. Wonderful!

I wonder...

Has anyone had a bad or pleasant experience with Apple?

Is anyone eager for the iPad launch here in Australia?


Here's another video from the same Apple Store's iPad launch covered by CNET's "The Apple Byte" featuring the hilarious host Brian Tong. Why oh why is Australia so slow!!!

[App Review] - Depict

Hi there! Today's review is based on a FREE app called depict! This is a neat little online enabled app which lets you hop right into a room full of random people from all over the world to play multiple choice pictionary.

What's fun is that you don't need to worry about typing in the exact word, but rather, guess the right one from out of 6 possible choices, like so:

Want to play with friends? That get's a bit more tricky.

Firstly, you can't play with a bunch of people on one single device.

The maximum supported amount of players is 5. To host a local game, every player must have access to wifi and an OpenFeint account with the host player as a friend (this took some time to figure out for me just to play with my bro)

However, once everything is set up, you'll be sure to have lots of fun with this nifty little free app! Get everyone you know to download it and have some fun!
