Dragon Dictation

When it comes to voice recognition technology it either works well with my voice or it doesn't. There really isn't anything that I've tried that kinda works. Luckily for me Dragon Dictation falls into the "it works well for me" category. I was stunned actually by just how accurate this app is with my voice. As a matter of fact you can see it action in this video:

EyeTV offers HTTP Live Video streaming over 3G

If you have an EyeTV for your Mac and have had the EyeTV iPhone app, you have had the ability to over WiFi stream live or recorded shows from your computer. What they have announced today, sweetens it quite a bit. Through their brand new Live3G website, they are now providing live streaming to your iPhone through mobile Safari, through HTTP live streaming. What this means is that you will be able, just by logging in through Safari, watch and stream all of your EyeTV content to your iPhone and watch live TV. All you need to do beforehand is update to EyeTV 3.3 (which is free for current EyeTV owners). What this also means is that you can through the TV Out cable, connect your iPhone to a TV and watch videos streaming over 3G from your iPhone, since mobile safari can output to TVs (something that normal apps cannot).

In Car iPod Integration Not Charging Your NEW iPhone or iPod?

With the latest generation of iPods and iPhones Apple dropped support for charging over the Firewire pin in the 30 pin dock connector. So therefore your snazzy New iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPod may not be getting charged while connected. If you're run into this problem, there are now a couple of solutions that will help you! The first one is by Scosche and it works great. It's called the PassPORT.  It's a small adapter that plugs into the iPod cable in your car and the other end plugs into your iPhone or iPod. Bam, you've got charging and control.


If you have a Mercedes Benz the Scosche adapter may not work!

MB seems to be relying on more than just the power in that pin because even with the Scosche adapter, it still doesn't make your iPhone 3G, 3GS or NEW iPod work properly. Luckily there's another option by this guy in Sweden.  I've seen this adapter work perfectly in those cars where the Schoche adapter didn't work.
