iPod - Macenstein

You had me at “Hot Russian girls with Apple gear pulling off their clothes”

Faithful Macenstein reader currentinterest sent us this great clip of… something. Not sure exactly what, but the video, entitled “Putin’s Army” certainly plays like an Apple ad, with iPhones, MacBooks, and iPad unwrappings. Oh, and boobs. Enjoy. Here’s the official description of what is going on, although I’m not really any clearer after having read it on what the deal is with all the new Apple gear: “Called “Putin’s... Read More

Enter to WIN: A set of Audioengine A2 speakers!

Thank you, we have a winner. This contest is closed. Congrats to faithful Macenstein reader Jason! Just the speakers. 2008 iMac not included. Who like’s winning $200 speakers? Anyone? No? OK, I guess I’ll just have to keep these sweet Audioengine A2’s. It’s a shame, really, because I already have a pair, and they rock. Perhaps you remember my awesome YouTube video (below) of how their deceivingly powerful bass could blow down TWO of the Three Little (Canadian)... Read More

Apple’s September Music Event: The Good, The Bad, and the Meh

Well, another Apple special event has come and gone, and odds are you have no idea how you feel about it. Well, fear not, I’m here to tell you what you think. So without further ado, here is what was Good, Bad, and Meh about today’s music event. The Good iOS 4.1 – HDR photos, Game Center, Proximity sensor and other bug fixes….

Laser-powered stripper platform with built-in iPod dock is this year’s MUST HAVE gift

Well, the iPod connector has now officially been put into everything. Tasked with the the challenge of creating a “coffee table”, London-based designer Moritz Waldemeyer has gone WAAAY above and beyond the call of duty by creating some sort of laser-beam themed GoGo Dancing platform, complete with smoke machine, and yes, an iPod Dock. This certainly is cooler than my current coffee table, which consists of a 30 Lucky Charms boxes duct-taped together. Finally,... Read More

iOS4 is out – how do you like it?

Well, we’re just 3 days away from the iPhone 4 launch and all the excitement and waiting in line that goes with such things, but even if you aren’t going to be one of the “early adopters” of the new iPhone, you can still get in on that iOS 4 goodness.

Unfortunately, that’s where my coverage ends, as I just... Read More

Review: Griffin TuneFlex AUX SmartClick for iPhone/iPod touch

In a perfect world, like above, the TuneFlex can position your iPhone perfectly. But not in the Camry… Lord knows the Toyota Camry has its problems, but all the highly publicized defect recalls and deaths are really taking away from the biggest problem the Camry has – namely that there is no decent way to mount an iPhone it it. I’ve tired suction cup mounts which are annoying to have on a window with the various cables hanging down, I’ve tried junky vent... Read More

Plane kills beach jogger listening to his iPod

You know how they say “When it’s your time to go, it’s your time to go”? Well, I can’t help but feel that a hell of a lot of people’s “time to go” might be extended if a couple of these bored ass-wipes stopped trying to fly their experimental planes. From The Associated Press A 38-year-old jogger from Georgia is dead after a single-engine plane making an emergency landing hit him as he ran on a South Carolina beach listening to... Read More
