I’m usually very good about turning around reviews; usually within a week or two of receiving a review device or accessory I’ve had a chance to try it out, take photos, and write it up. But there are two things that have been sitting in my office unopened for a few months, and I finally decided to get going on them. One item is a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 that I’ll be writing up shortly now that the weather in Colorado is cooperating (except for the winter storm hitting tomorrow…), but today’s focus is on what’s in the big box in the corner of my office — the Behringer iNuke Boom Junior iPod/iPhone speaker dock.
Having a baby requires constant vigilance — morning and night you are watching over your little one to keep them safe and happy. One indispensable tool for parents is a baby monitor that lets you watch over your child from afar. If you have an old iOS device lying around, then you might want to skip the traditional audio or camera-based monitors and take a look at Baby Monitor 3G and its new OS X version to see if this software package fits your baby-watching needs.
Baby Monitor 3G from TappyTaps works like a standard baby monitor system with an iOS device serving as a monitor in the baby’s room and a second device as the parent’s listening station. You can use two iOS devices as the baby-parent station pair or add in a Mac now that the latest version of the Baby Monitor 3G software includes an OS X app. The system works best over WiFi, but you can configure it to work over 3G as well.
Wired is reporting that Apple has agreed to a $53 million settlement in a class action suit regarding Apple’s warranty practices regarding water damage in older iOS devices. The settlement agreement, which was leaked to Wired, has already been signed off on by Apple chief litigation counsel Noreen Krall and now awaits the official signatures of the remaining parties.
The lawsuit alleges that Apple improperly refused to honor warranty agreements for iPhones and iPod Touch devices which were seemingly damaged by water.
The Apple iPhone is a very expensive gadget to own, and so stands to reason, then, that repairs would also cost more than your average device.
The value of having a warranty system in place in the event of a problem can never be underestimated, and with the iPhone benefiting from the one-year manufacturer’s cover, those who’ve recently purchased an iPhone can, in the circumstance of hardware / software failure, head over to Apple for a repair.
