If you still have one of the first generation iPhone mobile phones or an iPod touch there was no way that you could get a GPS module for your device, unlike the lucky owners of the new iPhone 3G devices, at least until now. A company called Orange Gadgets started accepting pre-orders for their external GPS module for iPhone and iPod touch claiming they’ll start shipping the first devices in just a few days (10/22/2008). You’ll have to prepare $75 for the external GPS device and have in mind that in order to take advantage of it you’ll have to jailbreak your phone or music player, because of the software that accompanies it.

The iGPS360 module is designed as a direct plug-in for your device and it has a built-in battery back-up which will store the last acquired GPS satellite information on-board, enabling a fast GPS-lock re-acquisition time after the module has temporarily been switched off. You can always charge the built-in battery trough an external USB port on the GPS and you should have in mind that the GPS won’t drain power from your iPhone or iPod in order to charge it’s internal backup battery.

You will need to install a GPS application on your iPhone or iPod Touch that can access the iGPS360 module, because Orange Gadgets ships you only the hardware module and not the software. Luckily there are a few good apps out there that will do the job well and the best software that currently works with the module is the xGPS software developed by xWaves. You can alternatively use Simba’s Hike.app or RoadMap, but these work only on 1.x firmwares and not with the newer 2.x ones.


The price of the iGPS360 is $75 and it is expected to start shipping on october 22th.

The invisibleSHIELD is the toughest, most durable gadget scratch protection film available on planet Earth. The film has its origins in the U.S. military, where it was developed and first used to protect the leading edges of helicopter blades from wear and tear while traveling hundreds of miles per hour. This proprietary film is a clear, urethane plastic (invisible) with unique properties that allow it to provide self-healing qualities and unparalleled abrasion resistance. The film’s flexibility allows to make a custom design of the invisibleSHIELD to wrap around even an entire device, including the screen, front, back, edges, corners and sides. The precision cut invisibleSHIELD is currently available for over 2,500 different devices, with more coming every day. And the best part is that even if your device is still not officially supported you can also get a custom cut screen or full body invisibleSHIELD for it…


The are custom designed InvisibleSHIELD protectors available for different Cell Phones, Digital Cameras, GPSs, iPods, Laptops, Media Players, PDAs, Watches and others. And the latest new additions are the first Android-based mobile phone – the T-Mobile G1 and the brand new Macbook, Macbook Pro and even Macbooc Air laptops that were just recently announced. You can still only pre-order these protectors, but if you do it now you’ll get 20% discount of their normal price, so if you just got a T-Mobile G1 ot a new Macbook laptop you should check these out…

The front coverage for G1 will currently cost you only $11.96 and you’ll need $19.96 for a full body coverage. As for the Macbooks you’ll have to prepare for a price of about $54.95 for a full coverage of the laptop.

iphone-soft-touch-pens.jpg

Because the multi-touch panel of the iPhone and the iPod touch respectively uses a completely different approach than most of the widely adopted resistive touchscreens available in other mobile devices, you need a different kind of stylus. The screen of the iPhone is designed to take input commands only from person’s fingers (or other body parts), but not from a plastic stylus for instance that is normally used in touchscreen devices. In order to do that the screen of the phone has a lot of built in capacitive sensors that detect a difference in the charge of every place the user touches the screen, but in this way the screen is not pressure sensitive. So in order for you to use a stylus in combination with the iPhone you’ll have to use a specially designed “pens” for this type of multi-touch screen.

Until recently it was quite hard and a bit expensive to get such specially designed stylus, but now they are quite widely available and are being produced in big quantities in China. Actually you can even get a pack of two specially designed stylus for iPhone and iPod touch for less that 6 bucks and you get even free shipping for them, a great deal if you ask me. So if you have bigger fingers or longer fingernails and have problems using the touchscreen of the iPhone or your iPod touch music player you can get these “pens” and fix the issue…

The price of a pack of 2 stylus is just $5.77 with free shipping.
