Mobile devices have been adopted by schools and educators all over the world but what happens when you reach 2/3 of the way through the day and batteries begin to die? Unless every desk has available power you are going to have to be creative in how you use these amazing tools.

Activision Releases ‘Call of Duty: Strike Team’ – Designed Specifically for iPad and iPhone Touch Screen
No one saw this coming. Yesterday, without warning, Activision blasted the App Store with its newest Call of Duty title. Although no one had any idea that the popular first-person shooter was getting an iOS-exclusive title until the wee hours of Thursday morning, Call of Duty: Strike Team has already made its way to the top five paid apps in the App Store.
It is that time again. Time to clean off the week’s paperwork, water the plants, and get ready for the weekend. It is also time to take a flashback to decades ago, when the thought of playing games like Call of Duty on mobile devices were a mere twinkle in a young gamer’s eye. Actually, it would be a time when even playing games like CoD at all would be unthinkable. Last week, we told you about Another World. The platform adventure game was a big hit in the early 1990s.
This week’s game is another title that launched on Amiga around the same time. Only instead of science fiction themed laser blasters and alien creatures, we are dealing with casting spells and fighting goblins.
If you are looking for a new portable wireless speaker system, Harman has just launched a classy looking unit to make your listening experience more convenient.
Harmon Kardon’s new “Onyx” wireless speaker system is compatible with Bluetooth, AirPlay, DLNA, and audio AUX-in. It features four-channel amplification for 60 watts of power across four different speakers. The dual aluminum passive radiators and Digital Signal Processor offer a high-quality sound that combines highs, mids, and lows for clarity of frequency. All of this power is compacted into a sculptural enclosure with a distinctive shape.
Rumors of the next generation of Apple tablets abound. Just yesterday, we saw a video from Unbox Therapy that showed what could be the front panel and back casing of the fifth-generation iPad compared to its predecessor. Today, TechCrunch is reporting on analyst predictions that the new model iPad tablets are likely to arrive in the fourth quarter of 2013.
Going for a dip in the pool with your iPad mini in-hand is now possible thanks to LifeProof’s nüüd. The popular waterproof case has been a big hit with iPad users. Today the company announced the release of a resized version for the 7.9-inch Apple tablet.
The nüüd for iPad mini is the first waterproof, all-protective case without a screen cover for the smaller sized tablet. It protects against water, dirt, snow, and all manner of external damage, while still offering a seamless touch screen experience.
Welcome back to this week’s edition of Sound Stage. We love music around here and even have some seasoned vets of the industry on hand. Every week, we look for cool apps and accessories that we think musicians and fans of music will like. Last week, we went hands-on with IK Multimedia’s iKlip Stand for iPad. I tried clamping my iPad to my guitar, just for fun. It worked. I don’t recommend it though, at least not if you are a rocker on stage.
This week, we have more news from IK Mulitmedia. This month, the company will begin shipping their newest product, the iRig PRO. You may recall that IK Multimedia recently launched the iRig HD. Well this device is like the iRig HD on steroids.
The wildly popular JAMBOX speaker now has a little sister and is more portable than ever. Devices such as the MINI JAMBOX fill a growing need in a mobile ecosystem that is constantly providing more content to users but which has to be viewed on devices with weak sound systems.
This year I purchased my family a rechargeable and portable Bluetooth speaker set which was an instant hit and has logged many more hours than our multi-thousand dollar sound system. In fact, the kids prefer to watch movies on the iPad instead of the flat screen. Until a mobile device can include a really great onboard sound system, the market for 3rd party solutions is likely to continue to grow.
Unbox Therapy recently uploaded a very interesting video to YouTube. Claiming to have actual parts to the fifth-generation iPad, the tech reporter compares it to a fourth-generation iPad. If we are not simply looking at mock up parts, it appears that Apple will be launching a smaller, thinner tablet this fall.
