iMovie for iPad Classic

The iMovie app for iOS devices is supposed to be a universal app. By that, though, according to the iTunes app page, you pay only once to install the same at both the iPhone and iPad 2 (i.e., only).

I already paid for the app for my iPhone 4. And obviously, I can’t install it on my iPad 1. The apparent reason as it appears to be is just because it got no front-facing camera (nor even a camera at all). My question is, is it the only hardware spec the app requires? Continue reading

The Quest for Audio Perfection

Sometimes I wonder how else can audio be more perfect?

For beginners like me, watching movies on a surround sound audio channel is definitely a whole lot better experience than a stereo system. It’s much like comparing a color TV vs. black-and-white. That’s why I often prefer watching movies at theatres than from a DVD.

But what about listening to music? As an amateur, the louder the sound, the deeper the bass, the more you stomp your feet at the beats of the sound — the better. But what do I know?

Maybe if I have one of these best marantz A/V receivers, I can tell better.

Maybe this can bring out the audiophile in me.

The iPad 2 Review That Will Probably Make You Buy One

Or at least will move you to the edge of buying an iPad 2.

What would the first iPad have been like if its engineers had been given another year to work on it

— Chicago Sun-Times, Review: iPad 2 is not revolutionary, but it is great

The author did some tests to compare the processing or loading speeds for some heavy-computing Apps between the original iPad and iPad 2. And he found out the increase in loading these certain apps was remarkable –around 2.5x faster. Now, while I’m waiting for some apps to load in my iPad classic, I’ll be wondering how wonder it would have been if I had the iPad 2 instead.

Personally, the thinner and lighter thing don’t really appeal to me, especially when the reviewer was actually worried attaching that a thick cable may actually snap something inside that thin device: Continue Reading »

Firefox 4.0 – Ready for Download

Even with the advent of Google Chrome, which provides sleeker and faster internet browsing experience, I was still using Mozilla Firefox as my main browser.

There are just important and useful addons in Firefox that I can’t find in Chrome. If there are counterpart functions or extensions, the same leave a lot of things to be desired. Worse, they even bring problems than solutions.

Now that Firefox 4.0 is here, Mozilla claims it is 6 times faster. I hope it really is, before I’ll start longing for Chrome’s marvelous speed.

Firefox 4 Introduction Video from JESS3 on Vimeo.

This 60-second video produced by JESS3 showcases Mozilla’s latest browser launch, Firefox 4. The video highlights the new browser and its features, including a fresh user-interface, more customization and personalization features, and a faster browsing experience than ever before.

Using advanced digital-animation techniques, the video simulates a papercraft production. Vibrant visuals, coupled with the lively original soundtrack and personable voice over, educate viewers about the non-profit’s latest launch.

Other features I’m really looking forward to are Pin as App Tab and Group Tabs Panorama. Hope they really do deliver on their promised improvements. Continue reading

iPad 2 is Not Excused from the Blender Challenge

Unfortunately for iPad 2, it is not excused from the blender challenge.

Just as any new device that came out in the past, the big question ‘Will it Blend?’ has been resolved in the affirmative for the iPad 2. Remember, don’t try this at home.
