Internally the stylus uses PCB digital circuitry that attempts to mimic your fingertip on the iPad&#39;s touchscreen. The 2mm fine tip is also hardened silicone that is less prone to collapse or distortion compared to other styli.</p> <p>Other styli have managed by using software to make up for the lack of precision in the hardware, but the makers of the Dart says that it works as is with no special software needed.</p> <p>At the moment the stylus comes in just black matte, with fingerprint resistance so you won&#39;t smudge the shiny surface and added tail fins for balance and better ergonomics.</p> <p>It&#39;s too late to get in on the Kickstarter but you can still&nbsp;<a href="http://www.precisiontouch.com/">pre-order one</a>&nbsp;for US$59.90, a discount over its final US$69.90 retail price. Packed with the stylus are three tips and two AAAA batteries. Precision Touch says the Dart should work with all applications and with all iPads.</p> <p>No mention of Android tablet compatibility but since it doesn&#39;t need special software it should work with your Android tablet too.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/ipad/zero-hero-best-ipad-apps-teach-you-new-skills/feature">The best iPad apps to give you mad skills</a></p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.precisiontouch.com/" target="_blank">Precision Touch</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="The iPad artist&#039;s dream stylus, perhaps?" alt="The iPad artist&#039;s dream stylus, perhaps?" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/dart%20active%2002.jpg?1406799722" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/ipad/ipad-artists-dream-stylus-perhaps/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/ipad/ipad-artists-dream-stylus-perhaps/news#comments Geek accessories iPad iPhone & iPad Thu, 31 Jul 2014 07:47:02 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1443738 at http://www.stuff.tv This iPhone case solves a major selfie problem http://www.stuff.tv/my/iphone-case-solves-major-selfie-problem/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> CaseCam lets you put down the smartphone and take a snap </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="This iPhone case solves a major selfie problem" alt="This iPhone case solves a major selfie problem" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/99d.jpg?1407223136" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>We&rsquo;re all faced with a first world crisis when it comes to taking selfies on a smartphone &ndash; our overly huge extended arm that sticks out like an unsightly branch.

You can silence selected calls and notifications, and even only enable a call when it&rsquo;s the second time the same number is calling. Great for light sleepers who don&#39;t want to be disturbed. But what if you forget to set it up?</p> <p class="p3"><strong>Solution:</strong> You can choose to do it manually if you want a certain period of focus everyday. But if it&rsquo;s a daily occurrence, remember to switch off <em>Manual</em> mode and tap on <em>Scheduled</em> to set your desired do-not-disturb time period, say 11pm to 7am when you sleep.

The document describes how a light gas like helium could be sealed behind a speaker&rsquo;s cone; when the gas pressure changes, the cone vibrates and makes sound. Usually, outside air is used to vibrate the cone, but using a specific gas instead can result in more precise, more faithful sound reproduction.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It&rsquo;s a concept which already exists in some &ldquo;plasma speakers&rdquo;, but these have to be installed in such a way that the movement of the gas can be tightly controlled by alterations in barometric pressure. Apple&rsquo;s idea differs in that it can be used in portable speakers and even headphones. A vented cavity allows outside air to compress the gas through a barrier, keeping the gas sealed inside.</p> <p>As with all patent stories, we&rsquo;d urge you not to get too excited. Even if Apple does release a product packing this tech, such a day is probably years away &ndash; and there&rsquo;s no guarantee that the company will use its patent at all. However, given Apple&rsquo;s recent efforts at boosting its audio reputation (mainly through the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-acquires-beats-us3-billion/news">purchase of headphone maker Beats</a>), we reckon there&rsquo;s a decent chance of some gassy iPhone headphones popping up in the not-too-distant future.</p> <p>[Via <a href="http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/07/01/apple-gains-patent-for-high-fidelity-new-gas-filled-speaker-design">AppleInsider</a>]</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The patent diagram of Apple&#039;s gas-filled speakers" alt="The patent diagram of Apple&#039;s gas-filled speakers" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/apple-gas-speaker.jpg?1404352125" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-s-future-speakers-and-earphones-be-gas-gas-gas/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-s-future-speakers-and-earphones-be-gas-gas-gas/news#comments Apple Headphones iPhone & iPad Music Wed, 02 Jul 2014 10:17:18 +0000 Hafizah Osman 1440822 at http://www.stuff.tv Superb iPhone snaps shot by Malaysians http://www.stuff.tv/my/superb-iphone-snaps-shot-malaysians/feature <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> iPhone-tography gets serious in the IPPAWARDS </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="950" height="633" title="Superb iPhone snaps shot by Malaysians" alt="Superb iPhone snaps shot by Malaysians" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/GynetteQuek01-Travel.jpg?1402897988" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Remember the iPhone Photography Awards (<a href="https://www.ippawards.com/index.html" target="_blank">IPPAWARDS</a>)?

The effect is akin to a roller-coaster, in that you&#39;re initially tootling along quite pleasantly, but seconds later find yourself hurtling along at breakneck speed, clinging on for dear life.</p> <p>With LEX, the accelerator is a multiplier that marches across the screen whenever you submit a word. Every time it reaches the end, your score per word ramps up, but the game becomes increasingly demanding. By the time you hit 5x and higher, it&#39;s all you can do to remember any three-letter words (the minimum allowed) and dispense with vowels faster than the timer can fill them.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/icheapskate-25-best-free-apps-iphone-and-ipad/feature">The 30 best free apps for iPhone and iPad</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="2048" height="1536" title="App of the week: LEX" alt="App of the week: LEX" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/1-getting-started.png?1402893892" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A ‘P’ AND A ‘G’ </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The best thing about LEX is when you&#39;re truly in the flow, words wheeling away, the thumping background music providing a combination of anxiety infusion and adrenaline shot. Now and again, though, you&#39;ll abruptly smack into a wall. In some cases, this will be down to the game&#39;s intense difficulty - a kind of arch-brutality seen in the likes of VVVVVV, Super Hexagon, Boson X and Pivvot, but applied to word games. LEX takes no prisoners.</p> <p>That kind of wall can eventually be mastered, but a more troublesome one involves a dictionary that&#39;s both riddled with holes and sanitised. We&#39;re not sure what tome&#39;s lurking in this app&#39;s guts, but it apparently has no room for &#39;tum&#39;; or, bizarrely, &#39;chink&#39;. You&#39;re also out of luck if you&#39;re hurtling along on a 9x multiplier and attempt to input a swear word - LEX is having none of that, kids!</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="2048" height="1536" title="App of the week: LEX" alt="App of the week: LEX" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/2-building-multiplier.png?1402893892" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> UNDER A SPELL </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>This niggle combined with the brutality not being twinned with a rather more sedate mode for mere mortals costs LEX our highest rating.

But with the same model iPad 4 now selling for RM1199, that&#39;s RM70 for a whole lot more screen space. The iPad Air, meanwhile, will set you back a fair whack more: RM1599 for the equivalent model.</p> <p>The iPad 4 is only available in the 16GB variety, but spec up the Mini Retina and Air and the percentage difference between them decreases. So while&nbsp;a 128GB cellular Mini is yours for RM2679, the same spec Air costs RM2999.</p> <p>Bearing in mind depreciation, the regular refreshment of the iPad range and the vulnerability of mobile hardware, it might be wise to think twice before you splash out more than RM2500 on a tablet. For our money, the 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi variants offer comfortable levels of storage without excessive financial investment, but if you can manage with just 16GB, the iPad 4 is undoubtedly the best value iPad now available.</p> <p><strong>Winner:</strong> iPad 4</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display" alt="Which iPad?

Now, the only apparent difference between the small and big iPads is the surface area. The Mini Retina has a 7.9in display while the Air&#39;s screen is 9.7in across the diagonal. Both are just 7.5mm thick.</p> <p>The poor old iPad 4 sticks with its relatively retro-looking and hefty build in comparison - it&#39;s 652g compared to the Air&#39;s svelte 469g. This is a tablet you might leave at home but it&#39;s still sturdy and perfectly finished.&nbsp;</p> <p>The wide black frame of the iPad 4 has been reduced substantially on the longer sides of the Air. Because it&#39;s much thinner than big iPads of yore, the Air no longer has to do the tapered edge trick, instead sporting a more squared-off edge, identical to the Mini Retina.</p> <p>Both the Air and Mini Retina are available in either &#39;Space Grey&#39; (with a black frame) or &#39;Silver&#39; (with a white frame), shrouded in a single-part aluminium case. The iPad 4 has to make do with the less exciting &#39;black&#39; or &#39;white&#39;, which is apt considering its similarly prosaic design.</p> <p>There&#39;s really nothing between the two newer tablets on this score. The iPad Mini is slightly more of a take-anywhere tablet due to its dinky size, but ultimately we&#39;ll call this one a tie.</p> <p><strong>Winner:</strong> draw - iPad Mini with Retina and iPad Air&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/ultimate-setup-apple-ipad-mini-retina-display/feature" target="_blank">The 10 best accessories for the Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display</a></strong></p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/ultimate-setup-apple-ipad-air/feature" target="_blank">The 11 best accessories for the Apple iPad Air</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display" alt="Which iPad?

Between the iPad 4 and iPad Air, it&#39;s the same resolution and 9.7in size but there are small differences in colour and contrast. The Air&#39;s colours are very vivid - check out iOS 7 icons - and it&#39;s a slightly brighter, crisper screen.</p> <p>The Mini doesn&#39;t lag behind on pixel specs, sharing its 2048x1536 resolution with&nbsp;the two full-sized iPads. That&#39;s dense enough to make pixel edges invisible to most eyes on the iPad Air and iPad 4, but the Mini Retina beats that (for what it&#39;s worth) with an even greater pixel density due to its smaller screen size.</p> <p>The Mini&#39;s screen is excellent, but the Air has more accurate colour reproduction, with the Mini struggling with some hues, reds in particular. Even though that&#39;s not something you&#39;re likely to notice unless you have a trained eye, together with the increased display area it means the Air should be the first choice for anyone heavily into graphics or video work. Indoors it&#39;s quite practical and comfortable on any of the three to reduce the brightness slider by as much as 50%, which will help stretch out the already impressive battery life.</p> <p><strong>Winner:</strong> iPad Air</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/apple-iphone-6/review" target="_blank">Everything you need to know about iPhone 6</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> BATTERY LIFE </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The iPad 4 has to find room for a pretty fat battery in order to drive its screen for ten hours, but somehow the Air has just as much stamina despite its slimmer chassis.&nbsp;Not only that, but it charges in less time too. In real terms that means it doesn&#39;t need a full night plugged into the mains to get back to 100%.</p> <p>In our real-life tests, the Air is averaging between one and two days before it needs rejuicing. The Mini Retina makes the same 10-hour battery life claims, which are realistic, but in our experience it doesn&#39;t quite match the two bigger models for real-world stamina.</p> <p><strong>Winner:</strong> iPad Air</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/ios-8/review" target="_blank">iOS 8 preview</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Apple iPad Air" alt="Which iPad?

Elsewhere they&#39;re neck-and-neck with dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, the same cameras front and back (720p, 1.2MP and 1080p 5MP respectively), gyroscope, accelerometer and ambient light sensors in common.&nbsp;</p> <p>On paper, the iPad 4 trails both on account of its A6X chip, but don&#39;t let that put you off too much.
