Parrot announce the MINIKIT+


We reviewed the last Parrot MINIKIT and it was a great hands free solution. The MINKIT+ has now been announced with some nice added features.

Adobe Flash coming to iOS?


The word on the street is that Adobe may have a workaround that will bring flash to our iPhones and iPads! It is all to do with Adobe Flash Media Server 4.5 and Flash Access 3.0.

In layman’s term, Flash content is processed through Flash Media Server, as opposed to the device itself, and is then delivered to the user.

The idea is not unlike that of the OnLive gaming service that also circumvents the limitations of iOS by having the information handled server-side.
As a result of the workaround, this method of streaming media does not require Apple’s stamp of approval, thus securing the world of Flash content to help distract you from real life responsibilities.

If this is true it could bring joy and happiness to millions of iOS users. Fingers crossed.

Archos 80 G9 available for pre order

061a11-d5f9_archos-80-g9bquilleThe Archos G9 has gone up for pre-order over at HMV. This is the 8″ tablet, obviously sans 3G as there is a plugin dongle to achieve this. There is nothing in the way of specs, since there are two particularly different storage options it would be nice to know which this is. Also it doesn’t list the amount of RAM that has been debated since the launch event. The price is a rather attractive £229.99.

One concern is the US pricing:

8GB 1Ghz: $299
16GB 1.5Ghz: $329
250GB 1.5Ghz: $369

It this turns out to be the 8GB at the same price point as our US buddies without conversion then Archos might not sell as many as they originally expected.
