“Now you can carry a multi-tool built right into the case of your iPhone. Sixteen of the most useful tools engineered into a thin and trim package. And at 89 grams TaskOne adds suprisingly little weight to your phone.
Utilizing quality hardened tool steels, aircraft aluminum, and polycarbonate, TaskOne is the next generation of multi-tools.
Not only is TaskOne functional, but it is also stylishly designed. Its total thickness is as thin or thinner than many other cases, and comes in a variety of brilliant colors, including Slate Grey, Cherry Red, Jet Black, and the Indiegogo only color Orange Flame. TaskOne does not sacrifice performance, yet is elegant and beautifully integrated with your phone.”
In combination with the VW radio RCD-310 my Golf 6 Team Edition can use the iPhone as the media storage device. When buying my car a USB to Media-In-Adapter was included.
The radio button are used to control the iPhone media and the hands are free for driving. When connecting the iphone with the media-in adapter in the middle console the external device was detected, but an error appears on the iPhone screen that the external device is not verified by Apple and can result in sound problems.
Volkswagen has an update on the website to update the radio.
I’m still locking forward the day we can update our car with an new firmeware by ourself.
Personaly I haven’t experienced any sound or other problems. It’s still low priced an can be bought for 36,20 online at the VW e-shop or the local VW dealer.
After 3 month experience with the Iphone 4 I’m really happy to upgrade from the Iphone classic. Only one time in Bern/Switzerland calling wasn’t possible, even with the bumper. But this was maybe a roaming problem. And the retina display is extraordinary beauty.
That’s cool, on http://blog.section9.co.uk/2010/03/iphone-rfid-reader.html you can see the work process in pictures. The RFID chip is from http://www.id-innovations.com/new%20launch.htm.
“The idea behind this project is to see what the iPhone’s serial is capable of and to try and have a little fun with RFID along the way. This reader works with the low frequency (125Khz) tags but I have a half working version for MiFARE Hi-Frequency as well.”
“When I got my iPhone last year I loved having everything important in one place, and the ability to get rid of unnecessary devices, documents and information I kept with me. I would frequently snap photos of class assignments printed on copy paper so I wouldn’t have to worry about losing them. The documents normally came out pretty clear, but it was tough to keep still while taking the pictures. I set out to make something that would ensure clean, consistent pictures of documents taken with the iPhone that would be free and easy to make on your own. And so, here you will find the eps files to make your own iPhone document scanner.”
“The iPhone or iPod Touch has an accelerometer that detects how the device is oriented. As the devices moves off axis (from straight up and down) the screen rotates. I want to use that feedback to control the position of a motor or servo or cause specific events to happen depending on the device’s position.”

“Google has created an app for the iPhone that will give the handset advanced voice recognition, reports John Markoff from the NY Times. The app can answer location related questions (Finding the nearest Starbucks), give driving directions, respond to generic questions, and even search local data from the address book.”
Die Applicationen die zuerst meine Aufmerksamkeit erregten waren Kontakte und der App Store. Unter den Kontakten sind nun alle Kontakte von Outlook schön durchsuchbar angeordnet. Der App Store bietet den Download und Kauf von zusätzlichen Programmen aus Bereichen wie Wirtschaft, Bildung, Unterhaltung und einigen anderen mehr. Viele der Programme des App Store sind sogar kostenlos verfügbar. Witzig sind hier die vielen Versionen von “Taschenlampen”, die den Bildschirm mit einem weißen Hintergrund ausfüllen, was auch zum Test von Pixelfehlern nützlich sein kann.
