The Samsung Dex is a tiny new smartphone dock that wades carefully toward a world in which smartphones serve as our primary computers. It’s about the size of a hockey puck, and when the Galaxy S8, a monitor, and a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse are connected, the Dex turns the phone into a surprisingly functional…
When you’re as big as this cruise ship—and it’s really big at 964 feet long, 105 feet wide, and 91,000 tons—it can be hard to stop. So you have to make sure you slow down in time or you’ll destroy things because once again, you’re a really big ship. This cruise ship, the Celebrity Infinity, didn’t stop in time and…
It’s like when you’re parking your car in a parking lot and your tire bumps the curb because you went a little too far, only it’s a giant boat that’s gone too far and the curb is a dock with a bunch of people walking around. So yeah, not exactly the same. A lot, a lot worse.
The captain of this ship must be a master Tetris player or a savant when it comes to that time wasting iPhone parking game or at least, be the inventor of the three-point turn because his maneuvering of this tanker, the Galway Fisher, into the narrow Port of Galway is simply incredible to see from up top.
What's great about this time lapse that shows a container ship moving around a dock is that it's not doing anything special and yet, the carefully orchestrated ballet of dropping off shipping containers is almost hypnotizing to watch. You get to follow the ship from dock to dock and see other boats move around it too.
There are a lot of wall chargers and docks out there for iOS devices. A lot. So many. But it's nice to see one that's simple, portable, flexible, and smartly designed. It's just sort of a relief. If you need this, here it is, and it's 10 bucks. Done.
Since the iPhone 5 Lightning adapter has a chip that prevents you from using third-party cables, you can forget about using an inexpensive off-brand dock. And since Apple hasn't yet released its own branded dock, you're basically stuck, for now, just plugging the phone into a loose cord.
I don't know if Samsung is now just taunting Apple or if their user interface "designers" are the same lazy idiots who copied the iPhone icons. In any case, this is getting hilarious. Or pathetic. Or disgusting. Or all of the above. Check out the S-Launcher that will be included in all their Windows 8 machines.
Another day closer to the iPhone 5 launch, another alleged leak part. This time is the USB cable with the rumored iPhone dock connector. It certainly looks designed by Apple, a bit like a Thunderbolt cable.
Could this be Apple's new iPhone connector? Except for the fact that French site Nowhereelse has a terribly poor reputation, I don't see why not. They seem real parts, not photoshopped, and the size seems to be the right one.
Everyone say "PROM!" Prrrrrom... CREACRACKSHRIEKSPLASHOOOF. That's pretty much what happened to a group of Wisconsin students who decided to take their prom pictures on a dock over a lake. It's the best prom picture I've ever seen.
You probably think that Urban Outfitters is for lomography-obsessed, ironic-canvas-bag-toting, paper-thin-dress-wearing hipsters like the ones above. And you're more or less right! But that doesn't mean they don't carry some kickass gadgetry.
Nothing says rugged outdoorsman like a hollowed out tree trunk with an iPhone connected to it. That's not actually true. But the iTree iPhone/iPod dock would fit perfectly in a ski lodge, cabin, or Ewok dance club.
The award for ridiculous iPod docks clearly belongs to Jarre Technologies' 11-foot tall AreoDreamOne. Let's forget for a moment that you have an 11-foot speaker in your house that looks like a heat lamp outside of a restaurant. The dock requires you to climb a built-in ladder to plug in your iOS device.
You can get an iPod dock for $50, and it'll do everything you'd expect: play your music, charge your phone. So how the hell can you justify spending $600 on one? You find something that surprises and delights you.
The Photofast i-FlashDrive will transfer your music, photo and movie files between iOS devices, even without a computer. It might look like a plain, two-sided USB and 30-pin dock connector at first glance, but it's more than that.
