Up ’til now, prototype videos of the iPhone-controlled Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter have been floating around, but it’s now available for purchase. Pretty slick quadricopter design allows for multidirectional movement.

Now that I can use Flash and any other tool to build apps, I am no longer held hostage to LOE’s and Tech limitations….
Verizon recently announced plans for an iPad application that will give Fios subscribers the ability to watch live television on their iPads. I don’t know about you but, I think that is by far one of the best app ideas yet.
S.N.A.P. is a free iPhone/iOS app that gives you a quick glance at your facebook privacy settings and grades it in a much more intuitive and understandable manner than even the social network itself does.

What the user sees is one of the broken BP pipes coming out of the BP logo, and out of the pipe comes the oil, pluming upward.”
