iPhone Google Maps Finally Available

iphonegooglemap.jpg

Google Maps for iPhones have finally become a reality. Apple's maps were so bad that even Tim Cook suggested users get Google apps and dismissed the exec in charge of mobile operations. This mapping offers street level photography, 3D views and public transit directions and listings. What it does not have is some of the mapping that Android does, like mall and building listings.

Google itself had some news last week that those who were searching for porn would have to be more specific because of the algorithms they use. As SNL's Seth Myers commented, those users are probably very ok with that.

Snooze Turns iPhone Into Alarm Clock

snooze.jpg

Almost every company is coming out with docks for iPhone and Distilunion is no exception. Recently reaching its goal on Kickstarter, the Snooze holds an iPhone 4, 4S or 5 in landscape mode while it is still housed in its case and has a non-stick bottom and scratch-free surface. The device comes with a free Snooze Alarm App and it only takes a smack on its top to get in those extra minutes of sleep. Choose between a basic Snooze for $39.99 or one with a charger for $49.99.

Dock Extender for Encased iPhones

phoneextender.jpg

Is your iPhone not compatible with most docks because you have it wrapped up in a case that looks good but is much too thick to make it compatible? Cosmos' black Dock Extender is good for most iPhones, iPads and iPods. The 30 pin male to female extender adds a bit of space and comes with a cable tie for ease of usage.

iPhone 5 Third Party Accessories

itronzcover.jpgiphoneconnector.jpg

It didn't take long for third-party companies to start producing generic accessories for the iPhone 5.iTronz already has a leather Wallet Case complete with credit card slots and Nanotek has a cheaper less expensive Cable for those who want the phone, but not the high price for connection to other devices. No doubt there will be plenty more generic alternatives in the days to come.

Note: Rumor has it that there is an authenticator chip in its adapters so you might want to see if there is a return policiy just in case or hold off on generic ones.

There's an authenticator chip in the official adapters, and third-party adapters probably won't work without it.

Cassette to iPod Converter

cassetteconverter.jpg

If you still have some old cassette tapes stashed in your attic, (you know who you are) the Cassette to iPod Converter literally lets you play them. Set your device in one side and the tape in the other and your tunes will be converted to MP3 files. The converter also works with iPhones, has a headphone jack audio output and needs two batteries (not included.) Cassettes can also be played on PC or Mac with included software and yours for $79.95.

By the way if you heard about this as being available from Hammacher, they no longer carry it.
