V-Moda, makers of numerous headphones of all types, is offering the Crossfade LP Custom, which is an over-the-ear headphone set which you can customize to suit your personal style.
Not only can you choose the overall base color and style of the headphone frame, but you can choose the color of the ear pad color, and the shield color of the earpieces. But it doesn’t stop there. You can also select from a handful of custom imprints for the shield, or upload your own custom artwork. Very slick!
The Crossfade LP Custom headphones cost just $199 (down from $250), and you can preview your custom design before you buy.
If you use your iPhone to take photos and import them onto your computer or send them via email, you may have come across an issue where the photos display sideways or upside down on the computer or the recipient’s email. It’s frustrating for most users because they’re not sure why it’s happening. The reality is that there’s nothing wrong with your phone.
If Steve Jobs were alive today, he would simply tell you that “you’re holding it wrong!”
The iPhone supports an Orientation Tag in the image EXIF data under iOS 4 and above. It stores the information that tells the display the device what direction the photo was taken and how to display it properly. The problem is that most software doesn’t implement the Orientation Tag.
Until all Windows and Mac developers update their software to read the Orientation Tag, the solution is to make sure that you hold your iPhone with the home button either at the bottom for portrait photos, or to the right for landscape shots.
Look back at the career of Steve Jobs through this extensive collection of videos. Some of them are kinda funny to watch now – like how excited the audience was at the announcement and demonstration of WiFi on the clamshell iBooks back in the day.
Alien Skin Software yesterday announced the immediate availability of Exposure 4, the new version of its photography effects plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Photoshop Lightroom. Exposure provides accurate film simulation and a wide range of creative effects in a simple interface.
Exposure 4 is a great tool for photographers and high-end designers, and carries a rather hefty price of $249 ($99 upgrade). I’m a huge fan of Alien Skin’s plugins for Photoshop. I have not used Exposure 4 yet, but I’ll be testing it out and posting a brief review very soon.
DiffCase: A different kind of iPhone case, indeed. One of the things I wish the iPhone had was a standard tripod mount built-in – but that would completely ruin the look of the beautiful phone. But since most of us tend to buy a case for the phone anyway, the DiffCase not only offers protection for your phone, but a dual tripod mounting system, and a sunshade/face cover as well.
