These are insanely well done. How is it that I've never heard of this site until now? Great find, Jeff! --Chuck
The site looks great, Jim! Congratulations on the launch and much success!
Agreed, mrmwebmax -- that's why I described the SPOT Connect as "priceless" for those who may find themselves in a life or death situation. The writer you remember is James Kim and he and his family were on my my mind frequently when I was testing the device. I think some innovative pricing models could do a lot to ensure these kinds of devices are in the possession of more people when they really need them.
Any idea how sturdy they are, especially the wires? I love earbuds, but I also love air-drumming. With sticks, because I?m a drummer. And invariably, I?ll be thrashing to (most likely) Canada?s RUSH, when an air-cymbal crash catches a wire and yanks it from the ear bud.The rubberized coating on the a-JAYS four reinforces the connections (earbuds and audio plug) much more than on most "round" wire sets I can think of. Whether that will hold up to air drumming probably depends a lot on whether you're playing Metallica or a mambo.
We could have had that without the news of Steve. Had it dropped 20% or more then I would be concerned about how investors are taking the news.Exactly the point, Sir Harry -- the market seems to see it as a non-event; or at least nothing to worry about in the near term. --Chuck
If this works as advertised (and battery life is good), $50 is a great price point. The only comparable device I can think of is the Parrot A.R. Drone <http://chuck.latournous.com/2010/04/i-want-this>, which sells for around $300. I foresee major battles at the TMO Corporate Towers over who gets to review this baby. --Chuck
Hasn?t this been out for quite a while? Does iRig still have a crosstalk/feedback problem at high volume with headphones? How good is it for guitar vs. bass? How does iOS AmpliTube compare to the Mac version? Have you compared iRig/AmpliTube to AmpKit/AmpKit+? Or the Griffin GuitarConnect? Or the $99 Apogee Jam? Or various cheap USB audio interfaces? (I use my old Griffin iMic with my iPad for GarageBand, for example.) For that matter, how does AmpliTube compare to GarageBand, which also offers guitar effects, amp models, and recording, among many other features?Hi, archimedes -- This was…
Regarding Sky Safari Pro's $29.99 price tag: The company points out that the Plus version of the app is also on sale for half price -- $6.99 -- and can track 2011 MD as well. The article will be updated shortly to reflect that.
?1024 x 600 pixels per inch? WOW! That?s got to be one helluvah display to look at. Apple?s Retina Display? has nothing on that!Yikes -- I'd want one of those too! The typo police have been alerted -- thanks!
Typo zapped -- thanks, Intruder!
