Nice to see Kindle Fire accessories emerging: FireDock Speaker

I don’t see (or am not aware of) many third party electronic accessories for non-iOS devices. It looks like the Kindle Fire has sold in enough numbers that at least one company plans to launch a $129.99 speaker and charging dock for it: The Grace FireDock. The downside is that the FireDock is not scheduled to be available until July. That’s a long ways off and I would not be too surprised if it never sees the light of day.

End of an era: iTunes free stuff section disappeared

For as long as I can remember, Apple’s iTunes store featured a section highlighting free songs, TV episodes, movie featurettes, and other digital freebies available for the week. This section was refreshed every Tuesday. Digital freebies are still available. However, it looks like Apple wants you to work to find it now because the free content section disappeared from the iTunes store front page.

Yes, people do record videos with iPads

People often poke fun at the idea of using an iPad to take a photo or record a video. I do so at least a few times a month and wondered if I was the only one doing this apparently odd thing. While at a high school track meet yesterday, I spotted this guy recording a video. So, it looks like I am NOT the only one who thinks it is fine to use the iPad’s camera to do what it was designed to do. 🙂
