Great interactive iPad books

The iPad and other tablets opened the opportunity for publishers to create brand new book reading experiences. A handful of them took advantage of what the touch interface, gyroscope, GPS, internet connectivity and other technologies offer. Stories can now be told in a more engaging and original way on the iPad.

3D Android Phones

After the 3D cinemas and lately 3D tv's it was inevitable that 3D technology will arrive to the small screen.

Two new phones the LG Optimus and HTC Evo can already be preordered in 3D versions. They feature two cameras next to each other on the back, so they can capture 3D videos and pictures, which can later be viewed in 3D on the phone. This technology allows you to capture important moments of your life with even more reality than ever before.

Brandwashed

If you've ever signed up for a loyalty card, given in to your kid's plea for a brand, or used Foursquare or Facebook…you've been "brandwashed."

In a shocking insider-account called BRANDWASHED: Tricks Companies Use to Manipulate Our Minds and Persuade Us to Buy (September 20, Crown Business), Martin Lindstrom, the New York Times bestselling author of Buyology, exposes the very latest and most sophisticated techniques that even the most trusted companies are using to learn everything about you-and get you to buy.

New search engine limits results to 14 days for more relevant results

When you talk about search on the Internet, you're probably talking about Google. Sure, Bing is slowly creeping-in to the discussion, but it's an outsider at best. The problem with searching on Google is relevant results. You don't always get them.

Wacom Bamboo vs Magic Mouse vs Magic Trackpad

I tested the Wacom Bamboo, Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad as primary input devices with my Mac over several weeks. I wanted to find out which one is the most effective for everyday use. My usage was not limited to graphic design applications, but lot of web browsing and doing various other work, like working on spreadsheets or navigating developer apps.

Wacom Bamboo Tablet

The Wacom Bamboo tablet is the most natural input device if you are comfortable with a pen or a pencil which is true for most people. It allows you to put the cursor instantly to the area of your interest. You don't need to drag the cursor over the screen to get from the menu to the trash bin.

On the downside the cursor is not absolutely stable like you are used to it with a mouse. Because your hand is not still all the small movements are picked up and your cursor will move about just a little. This is a problem if you want to point to one specific pixel, for example when making a precise selection. You have to concentrate to make it happen. Lack of steadiness is also a problem when double clicking, your double click may register as a click and drag, which is very annoying.

Apple's new Magic Trackpad

The new Magic Trackpad is the first Multi-Touch trackpad designed to work with your Mac desktop computer. It uses the same Multi-Touch technology you love on the MacBook Pro. And it supports a full set of gestures, giving you a whole new way to control and interact with what’s on your screen.

Sketching out ideas on your iPad

The iPad is a great tool for both jotting down ideas quickly and working out concepts in detail. Here are three free apps that I recommend for slightly different sketching uses.

Adobe Ideas

Adobe Ideas is a good multi-purpose app to sketch things out. If you only want to use one app for both diagrams and designs use this.
