I just bought one of these... and that's the cheapest of my three recent purchases. More on the other two later.

iPads purchases reduces sales of Macs. According to Business Insider, Apple's next move will be to replace the iPhone with a Head Mounted Display. So, we should see an interesting battle between the Google Goggles and the iEye.

Curiosity – What’s Inside The Cube

"Curiosity – What’s Inside The Cube" is an app for the iPhone. Don't. Download. It. I read about it in Wired. It is mindless and a huge waste time. Gotta go. I've got little cubs to click.

I'm going to try out CheckMark - an app for doing location based reminders. I use Siri all the time for time-based reminders - "check the laundry in ten minutes" or "replace the air filters at 6:00 PM on Saturday." I think the location based reminders would be nice as the GPS location acts as filter, so you only get the reminder when you can do something about it - "check for .22lr when at Wal-Mart." If the granularity is good, I might even use it to remind of tasks when I am in a specific building at work.

Free QST App for iOS

New from the ARRL, a QST app for iOS devices. I'm using it on my iPhone 5 and the screen is too small to be usable. I think it would work fine on my iPad.


ARRL members using Apple iOS mobile devices--iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch--can download a new dedicated app to access the digital edition of QST. The app allows ARRL members to read QST online or choose to download individual issues of the journal for offline reading.
  • Free: The QST app is free in the Apple App Store. You must be an ARRL member to access individual issues of QST.
  • QST Catalog: Browse all available digital issues.
  • My QST Library: Download issues of QST directly to your device for offline reading.

I've been thinking about playing around with WSPR, but haven't gotten around to it. Peter Marks posted about an iOS app for watching WSPR spots: WSPR Watch.

(Sorry, this is one of those posts that is probably mostly for me when I want to look back at any WSPR notes I made should I actually start playing around with it.)

My wife just got an iPhone and we love playing with the Siri app. It has been surprisingly good at voice recognition and the results have been both fun and useful. (Although Siri did have a fit when were asking "what color is Paddington Bear's hat?")

I can only image that competition will make the tools even more useful in the near future. Bonus points to Google for using Majel as the name for their app. It has immediate geek cred and works on several levels.
