We’ve talked before about how the iPhone can do a lot of things for you, but can it serve as a scope on a tactical rifle? That’s the idea behind the Inteliscope, a new accessory that connects your iPhone to an actual tactical firearm. You just clip your iPhone 5 (or 4S or iPod touch) to the accessory, connect that to your rifle, and you’ve got a heads-up scope that allows for custom crosshairs, video recording, a built-in compass and GPS, a timer, and a few more handy functions.
Drop tests provide us with a decent general idea of how a device will fare when faced with the unthinkable.
Of course, the idea is to keep a handset protected and try and avoid dropping it from various heights, but should this accident ever occur, drop tests offer a reasonable indication of how robust and durable a device is.
Vloggers GizmoSlip posted a clip to YouTube on Friday showing the all-new Samsung Galaxy S4 in a drop test against its predecessor, the Galaxy S III, as well as the Apple iPhone 5. Find out just how much damage each smartphone sustained in the video clip coming up after the break!
If you like TV, and you like the Internet, you’ve got some really good options for getting those two crazy kids to play nicely together. Even without a Smart TV in your living room, you can use an HDMI cable to connect your Mac or iPad directly to your big-screen HDTV (although that’s a bit of a mobility buzzkill). It’s easier to put something in the middle to handle that conversation, at least until Tim Cook and Jony Ive make all our big-screen dreams come true.
For most Apple-centric households, the natural middleman is the $99 Apple TV. Apple’s “experiment” delivers 1080p content direct from iTunes, subscription goodies from Netflix or Hulu, sports from the NBA, MLB and NHL, free video from Vimeo and YouTube, and of course your photos, music and videos from household Macs. The relatively recent debut of AirPlay mirroring for Macs in OS X 10.8 means that your computer can screen-mirror to an Apple TV just as smoothly as your iPhone or iPad can. If you’re inclined toward non-Apple boxes with more subscription and channel support, the Roku or Boxee hardware might be more up your alley.
