Stitcher: Stream Radio to iPhone

stitcher_1.png

I’m sure that many of you have heard of Stitcher before - but it was just brought to my attention, and I thought it was pretty dope. Essentially, it allows you to stream podcasts, radio shows, and news directly to your iPhone [or blackberry] - which is awesome.

The Mikiphone: Precursor to the i-pod?

YouTube Preview Image

a€oeThe Swiss Mikiphone, circa 1930, is probably the best of all the miniature gramophones produced in the first half of the twentieth century. The folding pocket gramophone when closed resembles a large pocket watch. All the parts apart from the winding handle are stored inside the case which when closed has a diameter of just 4.5a€A (11.5 cm) by under 2a€A thick (4.7 cm). The turntable is only just over 4a€A in diameter (10.4 cm) and the records are held in place with a push on clamp. The celluloid a€horna€™ is in two parts and is also stored within the case.a€A

Apple Finally Fixes iPhone OS

cutcopypaste_iphone.png

It doesn’t sound perfect - but little things like cut/copy/paste and landscape typing in email are a HUGE deal for us iPhone users, and are much appreciated. It’s nice to have all the feature a normal phone has, finally. Here are some of the new features that will appear in the iPhone 3.0 OS, expected sometime this summer:

Cut/Copy and Paste: The system will work by double-tapping or dragging across text, selecting cut, copy or paste in the bubble above it, and then using a similar routine to paste it into another place, or across applications.

Landscape typing in Apple Apps: Now you can turn your iPhone on its side and type with a larger touchscreen keyboards, a feature that was available in some situations but not in email. Finally.

MMS: the widely adopted Multimedia Messaging System will now work on the iPhone, letting you attach photos or audio clips to text messages for instant, you-are-there fun. You can also forward and delete messages.

Search: Last year Apple added search for contacts, and now there will be the ability to search your email, calendars, iTunes, and notes. Also added will be Spotlight, letting you search across the iPhone for a keyword.

Push Notification: While Apple promised one-way background functionality ("push notification") last year but never delivered, Apple’s SVP of iPhone software Scott Forstall says he means it this time.

Modified Google Maps application: now lets developers use Google Maps in their apps. But the big news is this will allow "turn-by-turn" applications, bringing GPS navigation to the iPhone. However, because of licensing issues, developers will be required to provide the maps.

Stereo Bluetooth: Inexplicably missing on the iPhone, now you’ll be able to listen to stereo music over Bluetooth. Still missing: wireless synching via Bluetooth. The bad news? This stereo Bluetooth goodness and MMS won’t work on iPhone 1.0.

Ninjas Don’t Use Doors

rinspeed-ichange-01.jpg

Rinspeed is rolling out the diminutive iChange in time for the Geneva Motor Show, which the company bills as "the world’s first car whose body adapts to the number of passengers on board," and everything from the shape-shifting seats to the ignition is controllable with an iPhone.

You’ve go to love the absurdity that gets designed now, all thanks to Apple and the iPhone’s influence on design and pop culture.
rinspeed-ichange-14.jpg

From Rinspeed:

An initial walk-around reveals that the concept car has no doors. The entire electrically powered roof sectiona€¦ tilts forward to allow passengers to board. Also gone are such mundane things as a key. Its role is filled by an Apple iPhone, which also controls the most important vehicle functionsa€¦ The energy for the electric motor comes from lithium-ion batteries that are available in two different stack configurations for short- and long-distance driving.

Yo-Yo iPod Charger

091908_ioinduction_01.jpg

Always forgetting to charge your iPod/iPhone, leaving you without music and phone service? Can’t get to an outlet? No sun where you live? Well, then there’s still a way for you get a charge: the iYo.

Yes, this is actually a concept for a yo-yo that will power your iGadget, designed by Swedish industrial designer Peter Thuvander. If these things actually get manufactured, they might bring back the yo-yo for reals. I’d buy one…

091908_ioinduction_02.jpg

As you can imagine from its name, the iYo is a yoyo-powered induction charger for your iPhone. This concept was created by Thuvander since Sweden is dark six months out of a year, so solar chargers don’t really work well. The iYo creates a charge by moving up and down on its string, just like a yo-yo. This is the first yo-yo-based charging system that we’ve ever seen.
