How to spot an iPad user?

iPad ain’t so small that you can put in your pocket, but it ain’t that big that you have to put in your bag. So how do you spot iPad users who are not carrying it in their bag?

First FREE turn by turn voice guided GPS for iPhone by MapQuest

After Google released their free turn by turn voice guided GPS Map for droid, and iPhone’s voice guided GPS cost some $99, it seems more cost-effective to buy android phones. But Worry-No-More! MapQuest just released free turn by turn voice guided GPS for iPhone!~

Cool things about MapQuest 4 Mobile are :

  • Voice Guidance
  • Off-route Assistance ( warns you if you get out of course, and re-route you back )
  • Point-of-interest integration
  • Text-Search
  • Maps and direction are download on the go (via data connection)

Not so good stuff:

  • it requires data connection
  • No map rotation, thus the map won’t rotate base on your direction
  • No voice to search feature
  • No traffic information
  • Supports only in US, and some European countries!

iPad reviews

Everyone  in the world is waiting for their iPad to arrive in their mailbox. But some of the lucky or maybe we should say high-profile guys already got their iPad. So what’s their reviews of it?

The WSJ’s Walt Mossberg :

For the past week or so, I have been testing a sleek, light, silver-and-black tablet computer called an iPad. After spending hours and hours with it, I believe this beautiful new touch-screen device from Apple has the potential to change portable computing profoundly, and to challenge the primacy of the laptop.

NYT’s David Pogue :

The iPad is not a laptop. It’s not nearly as good for creating stuff. On the other hand, it’s infinitely more convenient for consuming it – books, music, video, photos, Web, e-mail and so on. For most people, manipulating these digital materials directly by touching them is a completely new experience – and a deeply satisfying one.

USA Today’s Edward Baig :

The first iPad is a winner. It stacks up as a formidable electronic-reader rival for Amazon’s Kindle. It gives portable game machines from Nintendo and Sony a run for their money. At the very least, the iPad will likely drum up mass-market interest in tablet computing in ways that longtime tablet visionary and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates could only dream of.

Squeeze reduced my total harddisk size by 20gb!

Remember Squeeze from latenitesoft? It now saved my total harddisk size by 20gb! Meaning I have 20gb more space to download stuff! How amazing!

1 month ago when MacHeist gave our Squeeze for free before its nano-bundle. I have grabbed a copy of it, and during that time i have posted how much it actually squeezed my files. It was 175mb.

Now, after 1 month, Squeeze for Mac not just saved me 175mb. It actually saved 21.8gb! And it is still squeezing as I am blogging this post! How amazing is that?

What can I say about this software? I will say this is great. Especially for users who are on Macbook or Macbook Pro, where harddisk space is so limited and important. Squeezing the whole document or download folder will definately help in saving space.

What is best is that although the files in folders are compressed, but they still can be access without any problem. No unzipping, no nothing. When Squeeze is squeezing your files, it did not took up too much CPU power, to be honest, i don’t sense any lag nor slowness, I don’t even know it is actually compressing my files.

So what are you waiting for? Download Squeeze now at latenitesoft!
