LiveTunes main.jpgIf you have a lot of music on your iPhone, and you tend to like how a live concert sounds, there’s an app that puts the two together in a unique way. LiveTunes is an iOS app that simulates the sound effects of a live concert for tracks you already have stored on your device. Imagine how a song recorded in a studio would sound if it had all the elements of a venue, audience and acoustics. That’s what LiveTunes delivers with particular coolness.

Sennheiser already scored a winner with the over-ear Momentum headphones, but now, they’ve slimmed down the profile and slightly changed the design materials to create an on-ear version that are considerably more portable. These won’t have the noise isolation of the bigger model, but the components inside are virtually identical, all but ensuring music will sound great on these.

Headphones are in abundance these days, and the level of choice makes it tough to find the right pair for you. Urbanears has come to market with a couple different models that aim to offer the kind of sound bass-lovers would appreciate, but without the drowning effect and price of other brands like Beats.

Good sound and good music doesn’t have to come out of a huge speaker, especially if you’re living in a smaller space, like an apartment or condo. Sony’s X Series speaker (SRS-BTX500) is a model that isn’t portable enough to take with you everywhere, but packs in impressive audio quality that can fill a room without taking up too much real estate.

Review: Kensington EVAP Rescue Pouch

by Blogger on ‎05-29-2013 08:02 AM

EVAP Rescue Pouch.jpgOne of the worst things that can happen to your smartphone or portable handheld electronic device is when you accidentally drop it in water. You know it’s trouble, but you’re not sure, so you wipe it down, take out the battery, put it back in and then try to turn it on just to get a sign of life. When it doesn’t work, or the screen flickers, you figure it might be doomed. The bag-and-rice home remedy has been one way to combat water damage and ensure the moisture doesn’t short out the circuits inside, but Kensington has the Rescue Pouch, which is said to be even better.

Not everybody is a DJ, but it’s one of those things that most people appreciate in some way. Whether it’s dancing the night away in a nightclub or listening to a great set of tracks in your car, DJing seems to have become an art people are drawn to, and the power of smartphones today means you can do a little bit of it yourself. To be fair, the iRig Mix Mobile Mixer isn’t going to replace expensive DJ gear outright, but it is a good entry point into mixing tracks.

Photoshop Touch main.jpgAdobe Photoshop is the preeminent photo-editing software and platform in the world today. Everyone knows that. And the word “Photoshop” has even become a verb to describe edited images. Photoshop moved to the iPad and Android tablets last year, and most recently came to the iPhone and iPod Touch and Android smartphones. The app is fairly deep and intuitive on smaller screens, but keeping your expectations reasonable should ensure that you’re better prepared to deal with its challenges.

The whole business around headphones these days is just as much about style as it is about substance. What celebrity isn’t endorsing a line of headphones nowadays? You know you’ve hit close to rock bottom when Pauly D from Jersey Shore is primed to get his own branded set. On the outside looking in at this madness is SOL Republic, a new company that’s barely a year old, but a potential rising star in a confusing category.
