Filed under: iNews Headlines — netmobil @ 7:32 pm

iPod car adapters may be the best invention since white bread. If you love music and have an MP3 player or other iPod, no doubt you want to listen most when you are in your car, but that is a luxury you don’t have at the moment. Technology has made it possible for you to listen any time you like – even in your vehicle. No more lugging around CD’s, or listening to radio stations full of commercial
interruptions!
Depending upon your budget and level of experience with electronic installation, you can have crystal clear sound of your favorite songs everywhere you travel. Yes, some do have better sound quality than others, and some are easy to install. If you don’t mind a little more difficult installation or can afford to pay someone to do it for you, you will definitely get superior sound quality.
There are several different choices of iPod
car adapters
on the market today. If your vehicle is older and has a cassette player, you may choose an adapter that plugs into the headphone jack and then is inserted into the stereo. The sound quality of this option leaves a little to be desired, but you can listen to your music if you don’t mind a little interference.
If your car came equipped with a CD player, you may want to choose an iPod car
adapter that connects through the use of a cable. This cable plugs into the back of your CD player where the CD changer port is located. This does require some skill, so you may want to have it installed professionally. With this option, you can expect very clear, high quality digital sound. You can also change the music simply by using your car stereo buttons.
Recently, some makes of automobiles are being manufactured with built-in iPod jacks. If yours is not one of these models, it can now be added after the fact. With an after-market iPod car adapter, you plug a cable into the jack, then into your iPod and the music comes through the stereo. This option provides the highest sound quality, and you have no wires to worry with. This can be expensive by the time you pay for installation, but is well worth it if you can afford it.
Hopefully, this information has helped you understand how different options work, and what sound quality you can expect. If you love music, go for the best you can afford. iPod car adapters are one of the most popular inventions ever made, because people love their music! You can now take it everywhere you go.

New Micro Air Vehicle Military Technology about to be deployed

Filed under: iNews Headlines — netmobil @ 7:25 am

The military has some stealthy new technology in the pipeline it would seem. Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) Technology is a development by the United States Air Force. MAV’s are tiny robotic drones that have been designed to look like a bird or an insect. They can fly into an area unnoticed and spy on the enemy or even be used to fly up to take a deadly shot at an enemy force before they even realize what it is.

MAV technology may become a useful weapon by the Defense Department soon. Relatively massive funds have been put into into the scientific development of these micro flying machines. The Pentagon and Aerospace in particular have been working on these for more than a decade. The Air Force Research Laboratory apparently a projected 2015 date to put these first of their kind MAV’s into military use.

In the research and development of this new technology, the scientist and researches studied small insects, fruit flies and birds to design this tiny new aircraft. It will be very light and will be able to be carried in the soldier’s rucksack.

UAVs or Unmanned Arial Vehicles are already in use by the military but nothing has been used as small as these MAV’s will be.

In the United Kingdo, the Special Forces have been testing a 28inch MAV which they have termed the “Wasp”. They have used it so far to monitor the battlefields in Afghanistan. Now the US Marine Corps have placed an order for them. These particular Wasps may have explosives fitted to them to be used on surprise assaults.

These small MAV’s are being made by AeroVironment, a firm which is currently based in California. The Air Force has had a goal to finish testing the MAV so it can be deployed by 2015. By 2030, the Air Force desires to be able to deploy it. They are formulating the technology of being able to deploy swarms of these MAV’s so that a lot of site data may be gained at one time. There are a ton of non-military uses for these MAV’s as well, such as for search and rescue operations.

Meanwhile in other iPhone related news headlines, an iPhone To Hook To yourmay soon become a reality. According to reports Steve Jobs supposedly when questions surfaced about tethering laptops to iPhones he replied that this could become a reality soon. One iPhone user that asked this question has stated that Steve Jobs personally answered his queries. He went on to state that they are working with AT&T to make it possible to tether a laptop to the iPhone to surf the net.

 The new Android phone is reportedly going to support 3G services and will have a touch screen, a QWERTY keyboard that slides out, along with a 3-megapixel camera. This device reportedly requires a Gmail account before you can set up the service and rumor is that it might be a little more costly for the 3G data plan but definite details have not yet been released. T-Mobile would not comment on these rumors but had previously stated it would offer a new Android phone by December.
