PadLock Embarrasses iPad Thieves

We like nothing better than freeware here at NAV and think that the Padlock deserves a NAVi award. When your iPad, iPhone or iPod becomes unattached from your Mac (whether on purpose or by some nasty thief,) a loud noise disturbs you and everyone else around you at that WiFi café. To disable, simply plug your device back in or turn off internally. You can download PadLock at Kitchen Budapest.

Loop Price Lowered for Dads, Grads


This is your chance to get a Loop pointer at half price. Hillcrest Labs is offering the deal on the in-air wireless mouse in honor of Father's Day and graduation ceremonies. While we think this is a good idea, we would have liked it even more if it had also been in honor of Mom's Day, too.

(Thanks, Jeremy)

Online Channel EpixHD Offers Freebie


Epix is a new online cable channel that also streams movies. Selections include cult classics such as the original "Friday 13th" and "Blood Simple" to recent films like "The Cove" and the first "Iron Man." Request an invite code and you might receive a 7 day pass. They say that the codes are available on a first come, first serve basis, but we expect it will be like the Netflix free trial for all. The service varies in price, depending on your TV provider.

FloTV Offers 6 Mos. Service Freebie


If you have been considering owning a FloTV, maybe now is the time. The company is offering a free 6 month subscription with purchase, a $90.00 value. If that isn't enough to tempt you, think of the kidlets being able to watch TV no matter where you have to go. That kind of quiet is priceless.

Free TV Browsing With Kylo


Hillcrest Labs recently launched Kylo, a free Mozilla-based browser that can be used to connect to a TV via PC or Mac via HDMI, component, VGA or S-video cables. CEO Dan Simpkins came up with the idea and says that set-top boxes are really only alternate displays for the computer. Kylo has the ability to visit any website, zooms and pans, works with any mouse and an onscreen keyboard appears when there is the need.

(Thanks, Jeremy)

HP to Release Pocket Cam


Okay, it's purple but it is also amazingly priced at $109.00. HP's entry into the mini-camcorder category is the V1020h with 720p recording, SDHC card reading, a built-in USB plug and HDMI port for uploading. It has only 128MB of memory but has the advantage of a 2x zoom. The pocket cam should be out this summer, along with a couple of budget-friendly point and shoot cams.
