Droid Bionic Car Dock and Other Sweet Accessories

One of the best parts of having a Droid phone is being able to dock it while in the car.  Free navigation, cool media player, and thousands of car type apps makes the Droid the thing to have in the car.

The Droid Bionic is a new phone from Motorola, has some killer specs and will be touting the new Verizon 4G LTE service.

This new phone will be sweet in the car, so I want to make sure I grab the Bionic car dock for it.  I like being able to find accessories for phones somewhere outside the Verizon store, saving me some cash in the process.

Now the Bionic multimedia dock is a little bit more than the normal multimedia docks for other phones.  The Bionic is a webtop device, which means that your phone could essentially double as your laptop.

The bionic will be able to have a laptop-like device that will let you use it on the go.  That will come in the future.

Right now, you can get the multimedia dock or HD dock as it is called sometimes.  You will be able to connect a keyboard and mouse, along with an HDMI screen to ‘blow up’ your phone experience to new levels.

Your phone just is not complete unless you have a sweet bluetooth adapter.  (Just don’t keep it in your ear all the time – OK? ūüôā  The bluetooth headset has become a must have, especially in those states where driving and using the phone is illegal. 

My favorite bluetooth headset is the Motorola H17 Bluetooth headset.  My favorite part of this headset is the little ‘flapper’ that allows you to shut the unit off by just closing the flap.  This keeps the headset going for months, because I never forget to turn it off.  It also has special hooks into the Motorola phones that will read emails and text messages to you from the earpiece.  O ya- it has great call quality too.  It uses multiple microphones to cancel out noise that is not your voice so the other end hears you loud and clear.

I saw it at Amazon for a good price. Check it out here.

Most People like to have a case for thier phone.  I can totally understand this, they just got done paying hundreds of dollars for a cool phone – why scratch it up?

Well I am not really one of those guys, but if you are, there are cool skins out there for the Droid Bionic.  Like this silicone one.  They stay on really well, and don’t add much heft to the phone.

With so many new phones out there today,  I am very impressed with the Motorola lineup.  With great build quality and superb call quality, these phones just cannot be beat.



Kids Tree Houses

Climbing on trees, plucking fruits and playing in tree houses always fascinate children. It is too much fun to build your own tree house when you are a child. The picture stays in your memory forever and it is indeed very special. As a father you must try and build a tree house with your children to make their childhood stage special. There are several tree house ideas that will help you make a beautiful tree house.

Planning: Firstly you need to have a plan in place to build a tree house. You must figure out on which tree you will build the house. You have to sketch the design of the house and be sure of the size of the house. You will need to arrange the materials and tools that will be needed for the house. Then there is furniture that would go in the house. All these things have to be worked upon before you actually start building a tree house.

Selection of Tree: The most important thing is that your tree house must be very strong and safe. As a result the tree you select must be sturdy. You can build the house on any tree as long as it is mature and strong. It is a good idea to build your tree house on a maple tree. With the changes in season and climate the tree should be able to hold the house well. The other thing you must check is that the tree is free from any dangerous insects or reptiles.

Designing: The next step is to design the house. You must ideally make a proper sketch of the house on a paper with precise measurements that will make your job very easy. The size of the house must be determined, whether you want to go for a house with one room or two rooms. This will also depend on the tree you have selected. You should have a proper sketch of your house including the placement of rooms and measurements.

Materials: When you look for materials to build your tree house, first try and get as many as possible from within your farm. It is a better idea than directly hitting the market and buying expensive materials. If you can get it around your house it will save your cost and efforts. Try and use only strong materials to build your house. This will make your house last long. Maybe many of your future generations will enjoy in it.

Colors: The next step is to decide on the colors of the house. Use colors that can stand all weathers and do not fade too soon. You must ideally leave this choice to your kids. They will be more than willing to make this choice and they will even love to paint the tree house on their own. Such tree house ideas form an important part of a child’s growing up. This house is going to belong to kids so let them have their say in the coloring part. You could supervise while they perform this activity.

Furnishing: The last part would be to handle furnishing and décor. This again is the domain of children and should be left to them. Let them handle what they wish to stuff there and how they would make it comfortable and cozy for themselves. Now that I have shared all the tree house ideas with you, you must seriously think of building one for your children.

Run Windows XP 7 on your iPad? – Sorry!

If you search Google,  you will notice many people exclaiming: Install XP on your iPad РRun Windows 7 Natively on your iPad!  Well these guys are all wrong.

I went looking for this because I was interested in running some other kind of OS on my iPad. ¬†I wanted to feel like this tablet was more of a laptop replacement, for when I needed more ‘abilities’ when i’m out and about. ¬†I found many YouTube videos of people showing off Windows in the iPad, but curiously¬†nobody would say how they got it to work.

Well the truth is that to this date, I found that no one has Windows XP or 7 running on the iPad.  (If i am wrong then please let me know).

If you see Windows 7 or XP running on an iPad, then they are probably running some kind of Remote Desktop (thin) client or VNC app.

In my searchings I came across WYSE Pocket Cloud, and while it is not Windows XP or 7 running natively, it does give great performance remoting into a computer that I have at home. ¬†All I had to do is allow remote desktop connections into my computer, then open the WYSE program and put the computer’s information in the setup screen.

It worked quite well.  It was not exactly what I was looking for in terms of a more powerful iPad device, but could come handy in a pinch if I needed access to something that the iPad cannot do.

I paid 14.99 for this app out of the App store.  It is a promotional price for a limited time.  Regular price $29.99
