You are not stuck on a iPhone, Chapter 2

I wrote an article a while back about moving to Android, if you are on a Phone now. That one dealt with your data. Now I want to talk to you about the cool iPhone accessories that you love, like your stereo or clock radio with the iPhone dock, etc. Up ’til now, there was not solution. Now: there is dockBoss+ available through CableJive.

I have not seen it yet (I pre-ordered mine, it will be shipping on Sept 28th), but it is a cable that will plug into the docking port of an iPhone accessory and provide the power through a microusb port, and sound through a headphone jack. While the site says that it does not offer a data connection, allowing remote control, of music apps for example, it will let you connect your Android to your existing iPhone devices. I’ll let you know more once I get mine, and have a chance to use it.

Stay tuned!

It reminds me of my college days… Or my Navy days… When money was short I went for the Ramen Noodles. I remember at one time, you could buy them at the Navy Exchange for 12 cents a piece. The Navy supplied food, but at the time I was working swing shift, and had to get into uniform, just to go eat. what a pain :).

Now, there are some kool recipes to help you Jazz up your Ramen noodles. All are quick and sound good. One more hint before I go… For higher quality, still often for less than $1, check out the Ramen noodles at your local oriental market. They have unique flavors that you won’t find in an american supermarket, and they are great to keep in the drawer at the office, for when you forget lunch, or can’t get out.

One thing that the article does not cover as well is how to get your music on to your new phone. While the drag and drop method they mention will work, if you prefer, there is a free 3rd party application in the Android Market called DoubleTwist. It has a player that will sync with iTunes, and it will download any podcasts you want to subscribe to. If you want, they have a paid add-on that will let you sync via your home wifi network without plugging in, called AirSync. It is just $5.

OK, the world of concept cars has taken a new step. Volvo has put out a concept car at the LA Car show that runs on Air: http://www.wired.com/autopia/2010/11/volvo-pulls-a-concept-out-of-thin-air/. That’s right, folks. The energy source for the car running is compressed air.

Looks like fun!!! Might not work real well, once they pass federal regs on safety, tho. Let’s wait and see.
