Having Your iPhone Help You in Celebrating the Christmas Season

Having Your iPhone Help You in Celebrating the Christmas Season

Christmas is one season that involves almost everybody.  Kids are made to create Christmas cards while adults go about with an extra spring in their step, wanting to finish their holiday shopping right before the holiday season begins.  Every store has its own version of Santa Clause, and each home is has that tint of red and green to represent the holidays.

For some people, every single thing they lay their hands on has to have some spirit of the holiday.  This is why the makers of smart phone applications have come up with their own Christmas apps to get even your iPhone celebrating the holiday spirit.  Here are a few of those applications that create cheer and are even of use:

Christmas!!

This tries to place everything you might ever need into the application.  Of course, what is a Christmas application without a countdown to the exact day of celebration?  With one glance, you could tell friends and family how long they will have to wait until Christmas arrives (and how long they have to buy you the present you want).  It also has a Christmas list, which you could use to write down gift ideas and then tick them off once they are bought.  It also has wallpapers and themes that the phone could sport for the next month or so.

Christmas Card Maker

Every person in this world has a Christmas card list, though not all of them are fulfilled.  This may be because the buyers or givers find the available cards as too mundane to be bought and sent out.  With this app on your phone, you would not have that excuse as you would be able to create your own cards and send them to your loved ones without leaving your home!  Personalize it with pictures of yourself and your kids to make sure that they would still know who you should you bump into each other on the street.

Christmas Carols – Complete

The season will never be complete without the Christmas carol on your phone, and instead of buying each song for a certain amount each, just download the app and start singing to your heart’s content!  It promises to be complete, with the most common carols already stocked within the program.

Icon Skins Free

Decorating a phone does not mean putting a colorful sock over the phone, especially when what you have is an iPhone.  You would still want to show the world the beautiful piece of technology that you own.  Neither does phone decoration mean sprinkling silver and gold dust on your phone just so that it would look more Christmassy (that may invalidate whatever insurance policy you have).  To decorate your phone, just download the suggested app and change your lock and home screens to reflect the colorful nature of the season!  It’s much easier, you can customize it to your liking, and you won’t need to scrub the gadget at the end of the season.

Coca-Cola Christmas Snow Globes

No other product has been more associated with the season of Christmas than Coca-cola, and they have been capitalizing on this ever since.  To add this reminder to the iPhone market, they have created an app that would allow people to create snow globes and share it through Facebook.  If you miss someone, all you have to do is create a snow globe with the two of you in the middle, then tilt your phone!  The snow that appears will make you have a perfect white Christmas, and the person you miss will get your message… either through Facebook, or through the Coca-Cola website!

So much more!

There are a lot more applications available on Apple’s app store that bring festive cheer to your phone.  Some of them offer the same stuff as what’s already been mentioned, while others may have new things to offer.  Visit the app store, download, and start exhibiting the spirit of Christmas today!

LovePalz iPhone App. Brings New Life to Long Distance Relationships

LovePalz iPhone App. Brings New Life to Long Distance Relationships

Anyone that has ever been in a long distance relationship knows that they are tough. You may Skype daily, talk & text every few hours, but nothing can replace the intimacy that’s lost with real physical contact.

The lack of psychical intimacy is what a company called LovePalz is trying alleviate. So Chen, a 27-year-old marketing major from Taiwan invented the LovePalz that works with iPhone and other mobile platforms. He wants to save couples from the loneliness that comes with long distance relationships.

LovePalz is a device that can be controlled by either the man or women anywhere in the world via Wi-Fi connection. Whatever movement is transmitted by a partner through their hips is electronically sent to the other LovePalz device.  The devices take into account speed and pressure to make the experience as realistic as possible.

Features of the device:

–          Rechargeable

–          Waterproof

–          Air pump motor & automatic piston

Cost:

–          “Zeus” male product is $49.95 + $15.00 shipping

–          “Hera” female product is $49.95 + $15.00 shipping

–          No payment required to pre-order (only pay when we are ready to ship)

Visit http://www.lovepalz.com/

Unfortunately Kickstarter rejected LovePalz to fund production. The company is in the process of taking pre-orders to see if this is something they should actually produce. There is no cost to pre-order the LovePalz so there is virtually no risk. Judging for the media attention this idea is garnering (ABC News, Tech Crunch, Huffington Post) I suspect it will go into full production soon. Anything to make long distance relationships less painful I’m all for.

Apple loses another iPhone in a bar!

Apple loses another iPhone in a bar!

Some of you may recall a strange event happening last year, in the Spring of 2010, when it was widely reported that an Apple employee had lost his phone in a bar. Of course, the juicy bit was that this particular device wasn’t a typical iPhone, but a super secret prototype of the yet unreleased iPhone 4. Long story short, it turned up in a blogger’s hands, who took pictures and reported about it online. Apple was not happy, the police got involved, but nothing much came of it.

Now, it seems history is repeating itself. CNET has learned that an Apple employee lost another unreleased iPhone in a bar. This time it was a police report Apple filed in late July that said the device had been lost in a Mission District’s tequila lounge, in San Francisco. This time however the iPhone 5 did not end up in a blog, but instead Apple was able to track it electronically to a two-story home in Bernal Heights. After the house was searched, the device was not to be found.

In both cases it seems like the authorities took the case very seriously. The blogger in question last year, a man named Jason Chen, had his home searched, his computers and phones seized, and legal threats sent from Apple’s lawyers, before the case was finally dismissed thanks to his journalistic protections. This time however, if the device does surface, it might be harder for whoever took it to get a similar get out of jail card.

There’s no question that a lost Apple prototype is big news, because the iPhone is a hot technology, something millions of people buy, and seeing the next version of the phone would be very profitable for whoever can get their hands on it, especially with Apple’s history of being so guarded when it comes to revealing future products. Launching such a device would be something done on a stage, in front of millions of viewers, and they don’t want anybody stealing their thunder.

Still, it’s not hard to guess what the iPhone 5 will contain. There’s been tons of rumors, leaks, speculations, and potentially fake photos coming out of manufacturing plants. What most people assume is that the iPhone 5 will look a lot like the iPhone 4, but with a faster processor, the same that was put into the iPad 2, as well as new antenna features, possibly either NFC, or a single chip for both GSM and CDMA, which would allow a single phone to connect to any wireless network such as Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile or AT&T. Indeed, a new rumor is making the rounds saying that when the iPhone 5 launches, it will be on Sprint.

Regardless if the lost device is ever found, one thing is certain, this news story made it all around the world, and is just one more item to add to a never ending list of rumors about the next iPhone. Because if there’s one thing technology enthusiasts love is to speculate about the next Apple product.
