If you've ever played with the Action Movie FX app from Bad Robot you already know how fun it can be to add special effects to your smartphone videos. However, a new app from FingerFunk is taking things a step further by using an augmented reality effect to recreate the memorable chestburster scene from "Alien"!

Though it's been widely suggested that Apple's "iPad mini" would be making its debut alongside the highly-anticipated iPhone 5 this September, it has apparently been “confirmed” that the smaller iPad model will be revealed later at a separate event. Read More...

I don't know what it is, but there's something about speaking into a walkie talkie or CB radio that just makes you feel cool. While CB radios may be better off sticking to the trucking lanes, this CB Radio iPhone Handset will help you bring that feeling of awesomeness everywhere. Read More...

We've known for quite some time that G-Form's iPhone cases can protect your device from just about any impact. However, the company still likes to reassure folks that their products are the real deal. The latest stunt had base-jumpers drop an iPhone from over 1,000 feet and you can see the surprising result after the break. Read More...

It was one of the more successful Kickstarter campaigns, lauded by everyone from CNET to TIME and bringing in over $700,000 over their initial goal. The Brydge team promised to turn your iPad into a "laptop" using anodized aluminum keyboard and an elegant "hinge". Its durability proven by a "shake test" captured on video, the patent-pending hinge boasted 180 degrees of positioning and promised to revolutionize the iPad:

"When paired together Brydge and your iPad appear to be two parts of the same device, blending style and functionality seamlessly. Unlike other products made of painted plastic in an effort to look similar to the iPad, Brydge does not fake it. Not only does it look good, but when held in your hands you can feel the quality craftsmanship Apple lovers demand."

And then, some time after the Kickstarter ended, the following update was emailed to backers:

Hi Everyone,
Exciting progress is being made over here at Brydge HQ. As we mentioned last update, we have now officially completely redesigned the hinge, and we think you will be as happy with the results as we are. We redesigned the hinge for several important reasons, but before getting into that, here is how the new hinge looks compared to the old hinge: Read More...

Really, how much longer until dear Siri becomes self-aware? Sure, "her" new functionality announced today by Apple at the World Wide Developer's Conference will only really help if you want sports scores, movie tickets, restaurant reservations, or traffic information. But I think it's only a matter of time before the HAL-like service starts to give you her own opinions on said activities as well. "No Dave, we are not going to see 'Jack & Jill'...I have disabled your credit card until you have better taste in cinema."

You can now use Siri as a substitute for human companionship a useful tool on two different Apple devices, as it is now available on iOS 6 for the iPad. Here's some highlights on what the newly-improved Siri can do: Read More...

While everyone is in the midst of Applemania today as the announcements pour in from the Wotld Wide Developer's Conference, this little gem on the Apple site might have been overlooked:

Yes, it's Apple Geekery meets Comic Geekery, as the former "borrows" from Stan Lee and rephrases a famous quote from Spider-Man*:

What does Spidey and the jazzy new MacBook Pro have in common? Well, Webhead is "unbelievably sharp" and "lightning fast." Not to mention that fancy Retina-display.

*Uh, technically Voltaire coined the phrase first in 1832...but did he have a comic book? Noooooooo...

"The most beautiful computer we’ve ever made" -- so said Apple CEO Tim Cook, rather modestly, about the new MacBook Pro unveiled at the World Wide Developer's Conference today. But with a crystal-clear Retina-display -- a first for Apple laptops -- and the lightest and thinnest construction ever for the MacBook Pro line, Cook's words were more than just PR hyperbole.

The next generation MacBook Pro, dubbed by Gizmodo as "the most amazing laptop we've ever seen," has a 15.4-inch screen with a stunning 2800 x 1800 resolution. Expect software updates to accomodate the higher resolution, with Final Cut Pro and Aperture getting upgrades.  The svelte device also weighs a measly 4.5 pounds and measures in at .71 inches -- and yet carries up to 768GB on its hard drive and rocks a quad-core of 2.7 GHz (thanks to Intel's super-  Bridge processors). Other goodies include two Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI port, a built-in SD card reader, USB 3.0, dual microphones and a quietly cooling internal fan. Not bad, if you have $2200 or so to spare on a laptop. Read More...

One would think that Facebook's recent aquisition of Instagram would have been the final word on their photo-sharing capabilities. However, today the social media company launched "Facebook Camera," an iOS app that allows its users to shoot and share images...as well as apply Instagram-type filters to the photos.

Techcrunch provides a comparison of both Facebook Camera and Instagram, applauding FBC's multiple image uploading but calling them out on the non-aesthetically pleasing aspect of having comments and likes overlaid on the photos themselves. They also pointed out that Instagram might have the prettier photos than Facebook anyhow, because their users tend to be more concerned about the artistic aspects of their snapshots. Read More...

Oh, *Science* with your cute way of facilitating dystopic end-games for mankind that was once only the realm of sci-fi! The human overseers of Miami's Jungle Island are now providing their orangutans with iPads in order to communicate better. Strangely, the primates have quickly taken to the Apple products, displaying a high level of intelligence never-before witnessed. Strange, perhaps, but not surprising to this guy:

Using software originally designed for humans with autism, the iPads give the animals another avenue of communication in addition to sign-language. The screen displays various images, and the orangutans can press the appropriate button to answer simple questions...even give accurate health reports so their trainers can take better care of them! And it has been observed that the younger orangutans are much more interested in the devices than their older counterparts (who, we would assume, have stuck with their PCs and swear by them).
