Download LastPass Browser for iPhone and iPad

Isn’t it hideous to always have to enter your Username and password when you have to log-in to your account on your iPhone or iPad. Safari Mobile browser doesn’t support the very helpful LastPass Extension which is available for the Mac. Of course you could make use of LastPass on your iPhone or iPad via certain bookmarklets, but even that is quite irritating.

Thus LastPass has gone all the way and developed an all new browser designed for the iPhone and the iPad. The LastPass browser is available via the App Store, but whereas the iPad App is free, the iPhone App will set you back by $12 per year. The browser for the iPad is known as LastPass Tab and does have the tabbed feature, but nothing that is really appealing. It is a really simple browser that helps you skip through the log-in process without any hassles. The LastPass Tab also has built in support for Multi-Touch in iOS 4.2.

Download LastPass Browser for iPhone/iPod Touch from iTunes, requires iOS 3.0 or later

Android 3.0 Honeycomb Gets Ported to Nook Color

Nook Color is Barnes & Nobles best selling product and obviously a good contender to the Amazon Kindle and also the Apple iPad when it comes to eReader functionality. The Nook Color after all, has a color display, which the Kindle doesn’t and it runs on Google’s Android OS. Recently, Google previewed a video on the latest upcoming tablet specific Android, the Honeycomb 3.0 and also released an SDK for developers to try it out and find out what’s new. Of course it’s just an emulator and not the original release, but there are some real geeks out there who want to test it out on anything possible.

So the guys at XDA-Developers got hold of the Honeycomb SDK and ported it to the decently priced Nook Color. It’s always the guys at xda-developers that think of doing something like this that could help people enjoy a really good operating system. Although, the port is not all that fast and is quite buggy, but hey, it’s not an official OS too, just a developer version. They aren’t going to give up though, the developer states :

It does indeed run very slow so far. Touchscreen is working now. I’ll try to get the graphics acceleration running over the weekend that should help with performance.

If the developer succeeds in getting Android Honeycomb to run smoothly with all it’s amazing features then new tablets such as the Motorola Xoom, which hasn’t been released yet, may have some competition from this cheap yet powerful tablet/e-reader. If you have a Nook Color and want to experiment on running Android 3.0 SDK on it then follow this link here. Below is the video for all those who want to see how the Nook Color runs on Android 3.0 Preview SDK;

Xda-developers is a really good forum and it has helped me run Android 2.2.1 on my battered old Xperia X1. Runs great and smooth. Do let us know if you’ve had any help from the amazing developers at XDA on your device.

Apple iPod Classic May Get 220 GB of Storage

Many of us may not be fond of the Apple iPod Classic, mainly because it’s old, bulky and out of fashion. It’s not the same idea with people who have a huge collection of music and like to carry it around with them. The iPod Touch won’t help you out then, with all that touchscreen magic there is not much storage space. I myself have around a 100gig of music and iPod Touch wouldn’t be my first choice.

That’s where the iPod Classic steps in with it’s marvelous storage capacity of 120GB and 160GB which would surely be very useful for geeks who like to carry a lot more music, videos and other data wherever they go. And even though the iPod Classic is quite old now and hasn’t been updating since a long time, Apple hasn’t stopped it’s production and still sells it.

This could all change with the all new Toshiba hard drives that offer storage capacities of up to 220GB in the same 1.8 inch 5mm form factor the iPod Classic uses. The new Toshiba MK series of hard drives come in 160GB, 200GB and 220GB and according to a report by Hardmac, Apple may soon update the iPod Classic line up with these hard drives.

Imagine the iPod Classic, the big boy of all the iPods, to be packing another 60GB more, that’s like carrying half of a normal home computers storage around in your pocket. If Apple decides to update the current line-up of the Classic with the Toshiba 220GB Hard Drives then I’m definitely all game for getting myself a brand new iPod Classic.

What would you do? There’s the iPhone 4 for the calls and multi-tasking and then there’s the iPod Classic for your storage needs.

Official Apple iPad Prices, India

We recently told you that Apple will be officially launching the much eagerly awaited iPad Tablet today, January 28. They’ve kept to their word and also have updated their Apple India website with the latest and official Apple iPad prices for both the Wi-Fi and 3G models. There wasn’t any much drama, just a message saying that they’re updating their product catalog and that is it. No word on the pricing of the iPhone 4 or launch date in India.

The Apple iPad, although available in India via other means or through Ebay or other online sources, wasn’t much advertised in India. The iPad was actually launched last year, but unfortunately Apple did not launch it in India at the same time and now it’s almost about a year after that it’s being launched in India. Not really a good idea for marketing as it has been much speculated that the iPad 2 will start production next month. Anyways, below is the official prices of both the Wi-Fi and 3G models of the iPad;

Now the question is, would you rather wait for the iPad 2 or rush to an Apple Store nearby to buy the iPad? For more information on the iPad and how to order your iPad please visit the Apple India Online Store.

iPhone/iPad Game App Review: Dead Space

Dead Space™ is a sci-fi action game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This game features enough blood and violence to make any FPS gamer satisfied. While some people stated that this game was frightening, it was far from it. However, blood drenched corpses will fall from the corridors and the dark atmosphere should be enough for some of the more casual gamers to tremble.

You are Vandal who is left alone to fend for himself as menacing alien beings called Necromorphs try to attack and eat you for dinner.  If you have experience playing any third person shooter for the iOS device then you should have no problem navigating through this game. You will use the left side of the screen to either run, or walk and the right side of the screen will be used for aiming and controlling your point of view.

Those who are familiar with the console version should see recognizable abilities and weapons. You will have several weapons such as the plasma saw along with gadgets like the kinesis and stasis module.  Kinesis will use some kind of laser type force to pick up and throw objects that you normally couldn’t do with your own strength. And the stasis module is also available and will allow you to form a force field around a Necromorph, essentially paralyzing it and leaving it open for you to gleefully kill.

The game offers eleven exciting chapters which should take from anywhere between 4-10 hours. The game is full of suspense and you might notice your pulse rising just a bit. The graphics are beautiful and the sound effects are really realistic. Those who actually watch the cut scenes will also be satisfied with the voice over’s. This game is really an excellent FPS game and those who are a fan of them will definitely need to check this game out!. The cost of this game is $6.99.

Is the Nintendo 3DS Really 3D?

This is a guest post by oli4uk who writes at ThisisFreelance. If you would like to write for CallingAllGeeks, check our Adsense revenue sharing program.

The Nintendo 3DS is the latest handheld console to hit the market, and it’s most remarkable feature is 3D, without 3D glasses.

This is an immense deal, but just how 3D is the Nintendo 3DS, really?

After a little bit of experimentation with one of these gadgets at a local trade show I can say the Nintendo 3DS really is 3D. To a certain extent at least.  The Nintendo 3DS looks highly 3D if you have it at the exact angle. The good news is that the Nintendo 3DS includes an easy to use slider which controls the depth of field of the 3D depth.

Fortunately if you are in a situation where the Nintendo 3DS doesn’t work, you can easily slip it back in to 2D mode!

The 3D does not end at the display.  The Cameras on the Nintendo 3DS can also take 3D images to display on your screen, this is actually a pretty cool feature, and fairly unique (especially at the price).

On top of the 3D features of the Nintendo 3DS, this stunning console has an interior gyroscope for even more engrossing console control in game. This extra level of control comes in extremely useful in the 3D world.

So the Nintendo 3DS really does have true 3D, without needing 3D glasses. but is it worth the cost? The nintendo 3DS costs nearly $100 more than it’s predecessors.  The 3D gameplay is definitely more engrossing, but do we really want to spend the extra cash?

In the end the decision is down to the buyer, if you love Nintendo DSi games then this is the obvious step up. However if you just use your Nintendo DS console for text based games, or brain training games, then you probably will not need the 3D functionality of the Nintendo 3DS.

The 3D funcitonality is definitely unique, and definitely a whole new level of gameplay, however it does not perform too well in strong outdoor light. In most environments however the Nintendo 3DS performs admirably, with an intendely in depth level of gameplay with it’s enthralling 3D capabilities!
