Easily Fix Your iPad From Water Damage With DRY-ALL

If you own an iPad or iPhone then more than likely you are highly concerned about keeping everything wet away from your prized Apple possession.

Because everyone in the world knows that water and electronic devices do not mix, with most encounters usually resulting in a trashed device. Water damage is especially irritating because most insurance companies don’t even cover it, with the exception of the Worth Ave Group, if you get your iPad damaged then you’re probably screwed.
Well now there seems to be a solution to the problem of water damage with the Wet Electronic Tablet Emergency Kit from DRY-ALL. If you haven’t heard of DRY-ALL, they are a company that is already established with making a line of products that are made especially for drying out water damaged electronics. The Wet Electronic Tablet Emergency Kit uses a drying agent that is supposed to absorb all of the moisture, hence completely drying out your iPad or iPhone.
I know I have personally dropped a few phones into the swimming pool and urinal, and have had minimal success while trying to dry them out. I’ve used everything from sitting my devices in the sun, blow drying them out and even sitting them in rice, but nothing seems to really work. However, the DRY-ALL approach seems to be a good solution since their Blue Bead technology essentially absorbs the moisture directly from the air.
Now we haven’t personally tested out the Wet Electronic Tablet Emergency Kit from DRY-All, but the company brags that they have a 100% success rate when exactly following the directions. I know from personal experience that nothing is 100%, but the price for the kit runs about $40, which is much cheaper than buying another iPhone or iPad. However, I would personally spend the money on insurance from the Worth Ave Group before the water damage even occurs. But that’s just me…

Fashion from the Consumer Electronic Trade Show

The beautiful handcrafted Victoria Pearl by Novero is something that you would expect to see inside a jewelry exhibit – not the Consumer Electronics trade show and that’s exactly why it made our Best of CES list!  As a symbol of solid German engineering fused with traditional craftmanship, the Victoria Pearl doubles as a beautiful necklace and a state of the art bluetooth / hands-free device.

Arcade Game

Beginning as an April fool’s joke, a fake miniature arcade game was imagined to hold an iPad connecting it to a joystick and its buttons, which are common to a retro arcade game.
The idea of the iCade was such a success; it has been now made into a reality. ThinkGeek teamed up with ION Audio and Atari to bring the iCade to market. The desktop iPad cradle was officially unveiled at CES 2011. The iCade’s controls connect to the iPad via Bluetooth so it is just as easy as gently placing your iPad into the cabinet and “Insert Coin”.
Atari will have classic games available via the App Store with iCade support built in – including Asteroids. In addition an easy to implement API will be made available to developers allowing iCade support to be added to almost any game.
The iCade is priced at $99.00 US.

Tips on Saving Your Battery Life for Your Devices.

So you love your iPad so much, your playing with it all the time – and it keeps running out of juice —what you need is a couple of tips to keep your battery running for as long as possible, and we’ve got them here.
Most of these tips are common sense and won’t be a surprise to the more geeky readers, but now you’ll have an article you can send to your less geek friends and relatives when they ask you how to improve their battery life. Read on for all the tips

Keep Your iDevice Out of the Sun
Whatever you do, don’t leave your iPhone or iPod sitting in a hot car—heat kills batteries faster than any other factor, and your device that used to keep a charge for hours will eventually barely hold a charge, and you’ll have to pay Apple to get it replaced. The same thing holds true for any really hot environment: try and store your device in a cool place.

Reduce the Screen Brightness

If you keep the screen at maximum brightness all the time, you’re wasting a lot of battery life—and the screens these days are so bright anyway that you don’t really need to, especially at night. Head into Settings -> Brightness & Wallpaper to adjust the default level of brightness, which you can probably keep as low as 30% most of the time.

Make Sure the Screen Locks Quickly

Even if you’ve adjusted the screen brightness, there’s still no substitute for having it turn off quickly when you’re not using it. Head into General -> Auto-Lock to set the screen lock to happen as quickly as your device will let you. This makes a big difference if you are always picking up your phone and putting it back into your pocket without turning the display off.

Use Airplane Mode When You Don’t Need Internet (iPad/iPhone)

If you’re busy spending the next 8 hours playing Angry Birds, there might not be a good reason to have internet access, so you can consider using Airplane Mode, which turns off both Wi-Fi and the regular wireless radio. Of course, this will prevent phone calls if you’re on an iPhone—but if you’re busy with Angry Birds you probably don’t want the interruption anyway.
The more important reason to use Airplane Mode is when you’re mobile in an area with a really spotty connection—because the iPhone or iPad will try to stay connected at all times, it’s going to be constantly searching for a connection, which can drain your battery. Head into Settings and flip the Airplane Mode switch right up at the top of the screen.

Use Wi-Fi Instead of 3G if Possible

According to Apple, the iPad will get 10 hours of battery life under regular use with Wi-Fi enabled, but will only get 9 hours using 3G—the iPhone gets 6 for 3G and 10 for Wi-Fi. Of course, if you’re heavily using the Wi-Fi, you’ll still be draining the battery—the point is under similar workloads, Wi-Fi is better than 3G for battery life.
You can enable Wi-Fi under Settings -> Wi-Fi, and then pick the network you’d like to connect to.

Reduce or Eliminate Mail & Calendar Checking

If you’ve got a bunch of email, calendar, or contact accounts configured, and they are all being checked and downloading email on a regular basis, you’ll be draining the battery an awful lot faster than you need to.
Head into Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Fetch New Data and change the setting to the least frequent check possible. If you don’t use it often, you can just turn Push off entirely and then manually check when you need to.

Reduce or Eliminate Push Notifications

Do you really need notifications from Twitter or whatever other apps you’re running? You can turn these off one-by-one, or turn off Push entirely by heading into Settings -> Notifications, and save a bit of extra battery life since your device won’t be pulling in data for those applications anymore.

Reduce or Eliminate System Sounds

This one is probably a little silly, but if you really don’t care for the system sounds you can save a small amount of battery life by removing the sounds. A very, very small amount, most likely. Head into Settings -> General -> Sounds to change them.

Disable Location Services

If you don’t really need the location services, you can disable them to save some battery life. Head into Settings -> General and flip the Location Services setting to off.

Disable Bluetooth If You Don’t Need It

If you don’t use a Bluetooth headset or keyboard, you should keep the Bluetooth radio disabled to save some extra battery life. Head into Settings -> General -> Bluetooth to flip it on or off.
