Uses For Iphones You Wouldn’t Have Thought Could Be Done

Most people buy iPhones to talk, text and surf the Internet. However, there are a number of other things that the iphone can do. Below are some of the many cool things that iPhones can do:

Monitor Your Heart Rate

There is an app that you can download on your iPhone called the Heart Fitness app. After you have downloaded the app, you will need to cover the camera and light of your iPhone with your index finger. The hue pulses as the blood flows through your finger. It is accurate, but there are ways that you can “trick” the app. You can even get readings from ordinary items, such as ketchup bottles.

Scan Documents

IPhones can take pictures, but many people do not know that they can actually scan documents with their iPhone. You just have to use an app on your iPhone called the genius scan. This app allows you to take a snapshot of any documents. The documents can be saved as PDF or JPG files.

Measure Just About Anything

You may not ever need to use your ruler again after you have downloaded the measure anything, or AIM@ app. One of the many neat things about this app is that it can tell you your height just by measuring the length of your arm. However, it is important to note that using this app can be tricky, so you have to be very good at following directions in order to get it to work.

Take 3-D Photos

You may not believe it, but you really can take 3-D photos with your iPhone. It really is not that difficult, either. All you will need to do is take one photo, move over a couple of inches and then snap another picture. After that, you will need to combine the two images to create a 3-D illusion.

Keep Track Of Someone

It is very easy for you to keep track of someone thanks to modern GPS technology. You will need to download an app called Find My iPhone. This app allows you to keep track the location of another IOS device by using an iPhone, web browser or even an iPad. This can come in very handy if you want to spy on your spouse or child. The only bad thing about this app is that it can be kind of tricky to set up, but fortunately, it will be a lot easier if you follow the step by step tutorial.

Your iPhone is a pretty amazing device. You can make sure you iPhone stay looking new and shiny by protecting it with various design of iPhone5 and iPhone4 covers.

How to upgrade the Eee PC 1201N hard drive

Netbooks, particularly the Eee PC (duh), are great. You can take them everywhere, they’re relatively fast, and they’re good enough to allow you to finish your tasks without crashes. However, I’m not a big fan of their storage options. Either you get a really fast SSD that contains only around 32 GB of storage, or a hard drive that has 250 GB of storage, but only has 5400RPMs. Now if you’d like to have a hard drive with 320GB and 7200RPMs, check out this video posted by Netbook Reports.

What are the advantages of upgrading your hard drive other than the obvious storage gains, you ask? Netbook Reports answers that:

In addition to being faster over the stock hard drive, it also offers a 16MB cache to help load larger files faster, and also includes:
Low power consumption – With technologies like IntelliSeek, which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption and SecurePark, which reduces power by parking the heads during low power idle mode, this drive delivers 5400 RPM-equivalent power consumption in a 7200 RPM drive.
Quiet – In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD’s exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market.
Reliable – ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks during shipping and handling and in daily operation.

10 ways to tweak your netbooks

I’ve been using most of the tips on Linux and Windows way before this article came out, and any help given to budding Eee enthusiasts would be great.

“God Mode” on Windows 7

Running Windows 7 on your Eee PC and confused at all the changes Microsoft put in the operating system? Yeah, I know the last operating system you used was Windows XP (and you actually tried out that Linux sorcery for a couple of days, but you couldn’t figure out what the heck a “terminal” meant) and you don’t like all this fancy eye candy Bill Gates put into your computer. You’d want your computer to be less confusing, thank you very much.

Capture

Maybe this might interest you then. It’s a little secret for Windows 7 users, called “GodMode” it’s basically a folder where all system configuration shortcuts are contained. Yes, it even beats Control Panel, believe it or not. It’s a bit overwhelming to figure out, and I’m using it now on my Windows 7 machine and I don’t understand half of what’s in that folder. But I like having one easy shortcut to control EVERYTHING on my computer. I don’t like hunting for solutions or Googling where to change this obscure setting when it’s all, you know, in one big easy to find shortcut on my Documents folder. More »

Asus Eee PC 701 Tablet Mod (From the Archives)

Since Eee PC 701s are already practically out of commission, the next best thing to do with these… classic netbooks would be to mod them into something else. Well, better than throwing them away, you can just mod your old Asus Eee PC 701 netbooks into a tablet computer. That’s right folks. The Eee PC 701 may have a minuscule screen, but apparently it works as a pretty decent tablet computer. And Windows XP looks pretty responsive as well.

Done by EeeUse Forum member mxjf, he shares his pretty awesome mod in this thread. According to mxjf:

The touchscreen is the $33 one from DX, and that IS electrical tape holding the thing together. I’m most likely going to sand/smooth the edges down and replace it with some black silicone sealant once I’m completely sure it’s good.

Check out the video below. the quality’s pretty bad, but you can see that Windows XP is pretty responsive and that the mod turned out pretty well:

Increase your screen resolution with this Windows 7 hack

One of the worst things about netbooks is that the screen resolution’s too damn small. Okay I know that netbooks are made with portability in mind, and obviously there’s a much smaller amount of physical pixels you can fit in a 10 or 11-inch screen. The result? A cramped screen you have to squint at sometimes to look at properly. And other programs refuse to run on netbook resolutions as well, and that’s a hassle. More »

Use Your Netbook Battery for Everything
