Alpine INA-W900

The Alpine INA-W900 Head Unit(HU), is more than just a car audio system. It brings together in one unit, Satellite Navigation, CD/DVD player, AM/FM radio, iPhone/usb player, Bluetooth hands free kit, and it does it better than any HU I have ever used before. I have had a few devices that are meant to be used with the iPhone but none that have worked as well as this HU.

I have run the iPhone connection cable into my centre console, so its really easy to get to when I am in and out of the car. The phone is also paired via bluetooth, so even if I haven’t connected the iPhone, and still have it in my pocket, I am still able to use the HU for calls.

Monster Jamz In Ear Headphones

I was fortunate enough to win these in a competition and although initially I was a little disappointed,  as competition was for some Dr Dre headphones, and thats what I thought I had won. These Monster Jamz Headphones are what I had actually won. Once I got over my sadness of not owning the Dre’s (I have heard only good things about), I had a look at what I had in my hot little hands.

3DTV or Not to 3DTV, is that the Question? October 8, 2010

3D or Not to 3D, is that the Question?

Originally I had little to no interest in 3D TVs. I had never got around to seeing a movie at the cinema, in 3D, and so my initial exposure was a very brief demo of an early prototype,  and it left me wondering what all the fuss was about. As the demo was trying to show this pre-production prototype 3DTV to as many people as possible, I only got to view about 20 seconds of a 3D game. It suffered from whats known as cross talk(where the stereo images don’t align) making it fuzzy and blurred, and this also diminished the 3D effect. Not a good way to start.

Nothing had leaped out of the screen at me, and I walked away thinking *meh* why bother. My next exposure to 3D was on a proper production model, and it was a Revelation. All the crosstalk was gone and the image was razor sharp and in full 3D effect. Now I was thinking maybe there is something to this 3D thing. I think the industry hasn’t done itself any favors, by always  having things coming out of the TV (in advertising), when in reality, whats really cool about 3D is how deep into the TV the image goes. Sure you do get some things coming out of the TV screen, but what 3D does really well is the sense of depth you get into the TV screen.

WordPress app for iPhone April 28, 2010

I have just added this app and so naturally I had to do a post from my iPhone. I am not that keen on typing a big post this way, as the iPhone just isn’t ideal for that. The app is free which is always a good thing and was very easy to set up and start blogging with.

I guess this is a test run so I will add to this once I have played around with it some more…ok, I am now back on my netbook but the first part was posted from my iPhone. The lack of a spell check is one feature that I missed straight away but that just means you will have to put up with some typo’s when I post from my iPhone until I can get on here via my PC and fix them…sorry in advance 🙂  Feels a little like I am gorilla blogging< note I just coined this term 🙂 (28 April 2010)

Creating a new post is very easy, as this post proves. The app saves post as an initial draft. I struggled a little to post at first but once I found that ticking published(in status option) by touching it, I had my first from my iPhone post. The app obviously isn’t as comprehensive as publishing from a PC, but looks like all you need to get job done. I will no doubt post then log in later to clean up anything I post this way, like I am now.

The app looks great as far as navigating a blog goes and the interface is clean and simple. I think it will prove very handy as I can take pics when I am out and about and add them with a post quite easily. I will hold off rating this app as I have had too little time to evaluate it yet, but so far, it’s all good

Alpine eX-10 Ipod/Iphone Hands free kit, with screen February 3, 2010

Alpine eX-10

I have just installed the Alpine eX-10 into my car. This unit was originally several hundred dollars but is now discontinued and can be found much cheaper. Amazon have it for $US44.95 Click here. I paid a little more as I saw it online cheap and didn’t do any research. At this price its an absolute bargain and there is nothing that comes close at the price or even at 4 times the price IMO. Display screen image

The Alpine eX-10 is a combination of devices. Its a Bluetooth handsfree kit for your mobile phone. Its an Ipod/Iphone interface for your stereo, and it is also a display for both, that can be mounted so you don’t have to take your eyes too far off the road to use it.

The Alpine eX-10 comes with a control box that can be mounted out of sight, a 2.4 inch display, that can be easily mounted to your dash. It also comes with a microphone for the hands free function, and a remote control, to drive it all. Some may wonder about using a remote control while driving, but as this remote allows you to feel your way around it with a series of bumps on the buttons, it is actually a lot safer than using the phone  or MP3 player whilst driving, as it doesn’t require you to look at the buttons. read full article here
