In the example shown in the video below, we see the guys at KipKay demonstrate the system by showing how it is now possible to actually charge an iPhone using the heat and thermo-energy generated by fire.

You can also get the ‘Thermoelectric Generator’ which makes the above charging method possible at KipKay’s official website. Great if you one day happen to find yourself without power.

A friend of mine received an iPad for Christmas and she was looking to me for a recommendation for a good Chess game. Although I hadn’t played chess on my iOS devices before, I figured that there were probably “tons” of good chess games for iOS. I was actually appalled by how bad the selections were. Chess games have been around for YEARS! The one that ships on the Mac is great. Looks gorgeous and it works. However, when it comes to iOS the selection was not as good as I assumed it would be. I wasn’t looking for much…

I wanted a good looking board

with good looking pieces
I wanted multiplayer support either via Game Center or wirelessly/internet
I wanted the basic features for beginners such as hints, take backs, etc.

The above listed features are not revolutionary and have been around in chess games for as long as I can remember. First off most of the games I found had very bad looking (line drawing type) graphics. This is what surprised me the most. Most didn’t offer multiplayer support. However, I did finally find one (actually she found it first). It’s t Chess Pro. It meets all my basic requirements and it works great via Game Center so that you can play your friends either in the same room or across the globe. Her only disappointment was that there wasn’t more fanfare when you beat the computer!
You can set the difficulty level and this is a Universal App so that it’s native to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. There are LOTS of options beyond the ones I wanted. The only thing I’d like to see added is the ability to actually drag you piece to make the move. As far as I can tell you can only tap the piece and then tap where you want to move it to. Otherwise, if you’re looking for a great iOS chess game, this is it!

It’s time for another great-sounding deal here at iPhone Hacks – and this time we are being really literal about it. That’s because for a limited time you can get a pair of brown earbuds – with a mic – by BodyGuardz for only $35!

Those of you who tuned into Pebble’s press conference held at CES 2013 on Wednesday, will likely have noticed (almost immediately) that the company was experiencing issues with the colour profile on the camera being used to live-stream the event to those watching around the world.
Unfortunately for the company, this resulted in some journalists not present at the media event having to re-publish these colour-“tinged” photos of Pebble’s first-ever public UI demonstration.

Thankfully, YouTube user PebbleUnnoficial has, in fact, fixed the blue tinge defect originally

When iOS 6 was rolled out along with the iPhone 5 I was looking for a number of improvements to come along with it. I don’t pay much attention to the rumor sites, or even what Apple seeds in some of the developer previews because they’ve been known to pull/add things last minute so when I fired up iOS 6 I didn’t know what to expect. There were a few things that I had hoped would receive some attention (Contacts, Airplay etc.), but one of the most important things on my wish list was an update to the calendars App. Don’t get me wrong, the built in calendar App does

the basics just fine. It will allow you to input an appointment or task into it with no problem. It will remind you at a set time prior to that appointment with a notification, but it doesn’t offer much beyond that. When I saw the lack of calendar love with this update, I went searching for a 3rd party App to cover my needs. What I found was a super versatile, customizable, easy to use calendar that is now the only calendar that I use.  From the slick interface to the batch editing, it has everything that I want.

Beautiful Display
One of the things that I dislike so much about the built in Calendar App is the lack of a quality week view. Apple offers “list” view which is a semi-week view but no where near the beautiful layout of the week view in Week Calendar. With Week Calendar the week view shows every day of the week in 9 hour increments. A red line indicates what time of the day you currently are on and allows you to easily identify what appointments are approaching as well as which appointments are currently going on. Indicated by a light blue tint, the column (day) that you are currently in will have the day of the week and date highlighted in bright blue. On the topic of color, you can also color code events based on keywords. So for example I can color code all of my appointments for my children in green so that I can quickly determine what type of appointment I have just by glancing at the colors associated. To take this one step further, you can set the App to automatically color code an event based on keywords contained withing the appointment. For example if I start the appointment off with “Twins” it can change the color to green automatically. This saves a ton of time in color coding. Another great visual enhancement is the addition of icons. These icons can be entered manually into appointments or again automatically with keywords.

Moving appointments has never been easier than it is with Week Calendar. Just tap and hold to move around appointments like you would an App. Intuitive and easy; this is what makes the iPhone so great and that same simplicity transfers into Week Calendar.  Moving beyond simple reoccurring appointments, Week calendar allows custom, complex reoccurring appointments such as every 3 months on the last weekend day of the month, every 2 weeks on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, and much, much more. Basically almost any way of making it reoccur is supported.

Everything You Would Expect
Beyond the added features contained within Week Calendar, it contains everything that you would expect to see in a calendar on the iPhone. Adjustments for the colors, calendar, views, and more. While the “week” view is my favorite and the most widely promoted for Week Calendar, you also have the option to view it in day, month, year, mini month, agenda, and more! This is truly a customizable calendar that is meant to be changed to fit your needs!

The Bottom Line
If you’re looking for a quality, customizable replacement for the stock calendar App, Week Calendar is for you! It is totally customizable, well laid out, and easy to use. It’s not only powerful, but user friendly. It’s as close to perfect as I’ve seen in a calendar.
You can get Week Calendar for the iPhone from the iTunes store for $1.99 here: 

Back in July, a UK Judge had ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy tab did not infringe on Apple’s iPad as “it’s not as cool” as Apple’s product.
While the judge took a dig at Samsung, the ruling was more adverse for Apple as the judge had ordered Apple to publicly acknowledge that Samsung didn’t copy the iPad on its website.
