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 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.

Now you can kindle your child’s curiosity for prehistoric creatures and make-believe adventures with his very own “real” baby dinosaur Triceratops. You may have seen other “talking” and “moving” toys before, but chances are your dino-loving toddler has never seen a prehistoric pet that comes to “life” with realistic electronic sounds and motion like this one. Kota, the name of the baby-dinosaur, is a fossil-sized fun standing just over 2.5 feet tall. A hidden handle helps kids hold on once they climb onto the dinosaur’s back. Realistic stomping sounds add to the make-believe fun as kids bounce in place on the spring seat. And when you talk to KOTA the Triceratops he’ll roar back with expressive tail, head, eye, mouth and horn movements. Touch his nose with your hand and KOTA “sniffs” it. In fact, it’s easy to trigger all of his sensitive spots – try tickling his belly or chin to make KOTA “laugh”. And when you think this pretend dinosaur has worked up an appetite, be sure to “feed” him with his leafy snack – it really sounds like he’s munching on it. And if you still cant believe what you re reading just check the video below of the baby Triceratops dinosaur toy in action…

The interactive sit on Triceratops is priced at $399.95.
