There has been a lot of rumors and speculations going around that Apple, the big A, is in the progress of making a television. It is rumored that the TV will have a special version of iOS on it and it will be your media hub to almost everything digital. Rumors also have it that, iTV is not the official name for the product but iPanel points to be it. I get the idea of calling it iPanel because if you think of a TV, you can only watch things on a TV, but on a panel, you can view a lot of things. This brings me back to why Apple is going to call this product iPanel (based on rumors). The iPanel, as said before, is a TV not only for watching, but with interacting with your digital media, which can mean almost anything – your social life, pictures, music, movies, shows, and all kind of stuff like that. I think that this product will be a big success, but naming a product isn’t the most important goal in the development of the product. Its what the product is itself that values the most.

What do you think about the iPanel? Leave a comment.

I am currently in the development stage of a new service I was planning on opening. It’s a service that I don’t have a name for yet, but that’s not important now. The service will help people make their websites and blogs better and more interesting. It works like this, you can submit your blog or website through a website, I’m in process of developing, and you can set up an account there. Through your account you can interact and communicate with other blogs and websites and give feedback and your opinions on those blogs and websites. With special credentials and a reviewer’s member account (Free of any cost, but you only need to be accepted into the group of reviewers. To be accepted you must apply a form and the reason why you want to become a reviewer. You can find more details in the EULA I’m in the process of writing. ) you can give feedback to websites and blogs. I will also full-on review, read-over, and give feedback to the owner and writer directly. The feedback will consist of what he or she or the website or blog owner might consider doing or keep in mind to make their blog or website more interesting, easier and better view-able. Also, the owner or writer can interact with the reviewer about their writing style and content.

This service will be free of charge without any subscriptions or memberships.

I hope you will like and take advantage of what I’m creating. I am trying my best to release it as fast as possible. I am the only person involved in this project and it really takes a lot of time to complete something like this successfully. Thank you for your involvement and support. The new service will be available for beta testing in the near future. Please comment on what I should consider changing or what I should keep in mind during the making of this service. All comments are appreciated. Thank you.

Are you always stuck in traffic and looking for a solution, well check out this flying car. Flying cars were talked about all the way back in the 1980s. It was a dream back then but its slowly becoming reality. Remember those funny looking prototype cars with wings that fold up, down, left, and right.

Well, if you haven’t been paying attention what’s happening at the New York Auto Show, then your missing out on a lot of cool stuff. Recently, a flying car design prototype was unveiled by a manufacturer named Terrafugia. The car is street-capable and is priced at around $279,000. This car is named the Transition. As you can tell from the name, the car transition’s itself into a small passenger airplane. Here are some basic facts about the Transition from the Terrafugia.com website.

  • can take off or land at any public general aviation airport, but needs at least 2,500 feet of runway.
  • on the ground it can be driven on any road and parked in a standard parking space or household garage
  • the Transition is considered a Light Sport Aircraft and a Multipurpose Passenger Vehicle
  • the wings extend and fold within 30 seconds

It was stated on Terrafugia’s website, that roughly 100 aircraft have been already reserved. I can’t even imagine, in a good way, driving to a local store or to work everyday in one of these things. Its unbelievable. Imagine walking into a dealership for cars a few years from now and seeing this. How many people are actually interested in this? Now you folks really need to start paying attention more to those traffic rules. Imagine how dangerous this could be if would use it. Now, I’m not saying the Transition is a bad aircraft or product.

I’m saying that some consumers aren’t ready for a change. To some people, this isn’t important to them, and to other people, it is and other people are interested in it. It all depends on personality. Also, the national general air space should get really for this. More Air Traffic Controllers should be placed and more strict rules. Now, I can guarantee that, not everybody won’t be driving one of these every morning  for over the next couple years so what’s there to worry about. True, but think about the future.

Are cars  that we use today, going to be obsolete in about 20…, 30…, or even 50… years from now?

Galileo is a project in Santa Cruz, CA by Motrr. The Galileo is a really interesting project. It an iOS-controlled robotic iPhone platform. It rotate the iPhone physically and changes it’s orientation. You can control this robot with another iOS device. The platform can pan and tilt 360* at speeds of up to 200* per second in any orientation. Its a great tool for an advanced photographer and anyone who uses video chat a lot.

Check out this project and give me your feedback on it. Thank You.
