Air PlayIt For Your iPhone And iPad

Article first published as  Air PlayIt For Your iPad and iPhone  on Technorati. Air PlayIt developed by  Digiarty Software  is an great app for your iPhone and iPad. Air PlayIt allows you stream media from your home computer to your iPhone and iPad within your home network or remote locations such as the office with a 3G or 4G connection. There are 2 components to making Air PlayIt to work; a media server which is installed on your home PC or Mac and the  Air PlayIt iPhone app  available from Apple’s App Store. The Air PlayIt media server is easy to install and requires very little setup. Once you have the media server installed on your home computer, all you need to do is add you media folders location in it’s settings. Setting up on an iPhone/iPad is also just as easy. You’re given two options when entering server information; If your mobile devices is on the same network as your home computer, you’d just enter the IP address and port number under ‘Local Server’ settings.

Ubisoft's Rocksmith Day One Review

Article first published as  Ubisoft’s Rocksmith: Day One  on Technorati. Today I received my copy of Ubisoft’s Rocksmith. I pre-ordered the game several months ago anticipating the day I can use my PlayStation 3 console and guitar together and rock out. The retail box of Rocksmith includes the game disc, fret board stickies and a cable to plug your guitar into your console’s USB port. Also note that the game developers have said that the cable can be used on PC as well….so I’ll be sure to try and use the guitar cable with GarageBand. At start up, I was greeted by an 11 Mb software update, once completed, the game loaded. You’re first ‘mission’ is to strum your guitar as loud and fast as you can to get your audience cheering. Once you get the crowd going, your guitar setup beings. The system asks you questions about your guitar such as head stock type and if you’re a leftie or rightie. The game also helps you tune your guitar and before every lesson, the system asks you to strum each st

Some iPhone 4s Sample Pictures

Hey guys, thought I’d post a few pictures showing off the iPhone 4s’ new 8 megapixel camera. I’m sure several photo enthusiasts who are not on the iPhone 4s are curious to see the picture quality. What I’ll do is update this posting for the time being to show show off the new features of the update camera hardware. Coming from the iPhone 3Gs, I could easily tell the photos are coming out more vivid and sharper. I’m very please with the picture quality improvements. I do wish that the front facing camera was improved, seems only fitting…update BOTH cameras!! Anyways, l digress. Here is what Apple says about it’s new camera: “ The iPhone 4S camera gives you 8 megapixels — that’s 60 percent more pixels than the camera on iPhone 4. They’re engineered with a higher, full-well capacity to collect even more light. With more megapixels and more light, you’ll see a dramatic difference in the resolution and details of your images. So your photos look stunning everywhere you show them off — on yo

Assassin's Creed - Oldie But Goody

Although Assassin’s Creed, the first installment by Ubisoft to this franchise has been out for quite a few years now, there has been a lot of negative banter posted around the web about this game. I am writing this review simply to share my opinion on the matter and to try and give this game the commendations it deserves. If you were to compare this game with its sequels then sure, it looks pretty weak, but considering how long ago it was developed and how fresh the idea was at the time, Assassin’s Creed is a breakthrough. 2007 was a year where first-person shooters really took off, with highly popular games such as Call of Duty 4 and BioShock being released. Assassin’s Creed could have easily been pushed down gamers’ wish lists in favor of these more intense shooters but because of its fresh gameplay and storyline, it earned platinum status in less than a year. The game takes place in modern day and at the start you play as Desmond Miles, a bartender who is captured by worldwide corpo

My Netflix Parody for PiraFlix Video Rental Service

So I decided to have some fun. At work, a co-worker walked in and said that he had begun a video rental service, his business model; pay a one time admin fee of $20 and rent any movie you wish for as long as you want. When I first heard of this, I laughed, and I decided to ‘help’ the guy out by creating a Facebook page and commercial. Our Facebook page needs more LIKEs, we’d like to get to 25 so we can get the URL: so please, help us out and LIKE out Facebook page . But LIKE our page after you watch my video. So about the video. There isn’t much to say about it execpt I tried to make it like a real NetFlix commercial without the graphics and HUMANS. Yea, it’s all one big puppet show, thought it would make it funny that way. So here it is: httpv:// You can also download the video and enjoy at home!
