The iPad has about as many uses as there are apps available for it in the Apple App Store, so whether you're a small business owner preparing your store for the rush of holiday traffic, practicing the piano for a holiday recital, preparing to travel home to visit family, or you're getting ready to entertain guests for the holidays, chances are good that an iPad may be involved.
With the holiday season quickly approaching, now’s the time to start making your travel plans. Don’t let the stress of the road or the chaos at the airport get the best of you. Every year, portable technology gets smarter, smaller, and more popular.
Life is too short to eject your iPad from your computer safely. Thankfully, Apple has provided us with iOS 5 and iCloud so we no longer have to be tethered to our notebook and desktop computers in order to sync data.
Mobile devices won’t work without power, yet we often forget to recharge them. That’s why having a dedicated place to reinvigorate all your devices is a sensible way to keep your phone, music player, notebook, tablet, camera and more, well fed while you sleep.
Anyone who has ever used a USB DTV tuner stick and antenna to watch TV on a notebook knows that reception is fickle. It works when you’re still—just don’t expect to see much while repositioning the computer, or in a moving vehicle.
When earbuds get in the way, and you’d rather cast the music into the air so it can be heard by anyone in earshot, portable speaker options abound. Stereo speakers with decent sound can travel with you easily.
Despite your summertime affinity for water and sand, such elements are year-round enemies of personal electronics. If you want to enjoy your music, videos and photos out-of-doors, consider a seasonal accessory designed to defend the investment in your mobile gear.
Sometimes you wish you could save a temporary image you see on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Well, it’s not necessary to point a camera at the screen. Simply keep the Home button pressed as you also quickly press the Sleep/Wake button as if it were the shutter button on a camera. The screen will blink. Whatever you see on the screen (including an image you’ve enlarged), will be captured to the Photos/Saved Photos folder.
What the original Sony Walkman and iPod have in common is that they both necessitated and popularized the use of headphones and earphones. While all current models come with decent headphones, it’s not uncommon for some users to invest a lot of money in high-end aftermarket headphones. But no matter how expensive the headphones, sometimes the cord isn’t long enough.
When packing for a trip, you may not think twice about taking along a portable player or media-loaded phone, but there are important accessories you can throw into your bag to insure that the player won’t become dead weight.
