PacketVideo is Bringing Live TV to the iPhone

The iPhone is a super multimedia device already but it will soon become revolutionary with the release of the new mobile PacketVideo application. PacketVideo software is bringing live television to the iPhone by enabling the delivery of operator-branded television and digital video services on demand.

Along with the expected video streaming and playback capabilities, PacketVideo's CORE supports middleware services that can deliver live content and on-demand content - should be very cool!

Major mobile operators should be launching multimedia video apps in the Apple store within 6-8 weeks.

My iPhone Wishlist... A Nintendo Wii Controller

Are you looking for some new "techie" ways to shed those unwanted pounds?

I know this is an iPhone and Android blog and I promise we'll get to that in just a minute. I need to divert to the Nintendo Wii for just a moment though because it rocks in the exercise department and it actually ties in with my iPhone wishlist.

I just got my first Wii for Christmas and I'm addicted to their fitness games! I'm working out (well, er... playing games) constantly on this thing and I cannot get over how easy it is to exercise when you're using this type of technology. My friend at the daily planet turned me on to snowboarding ala Wii - very cool because we don't do a lot of snow boarding here in Honolulu. She even brags about her Wii fitness routine.

Now the iPhone developers have developed a pretty slick little exercise app too called StepTrak Lite. It's a free pedometer app that is unbelievably accurate on my afternoon walks. In any case, Step Track lite is excellent and well worth downloading. In fact, it is currently the #1 app in the health and fitness category.

So here we have these two technology giants, Nintendo Wii and the Apple iPhone, and both are revolutionizing the way we interact with the world around us. My iPhone is a phone, an iPod, and an Internet Browser all in one unit.

Which leads me back to my iPhone wishlish...

I wish my iPhone could serve as my Nintendo Wii controller!

That way I could use the iPhone pedometer on my afternoon walks to my friend Malena's house. Then I could use it as my iPhone Nintendo Wii controller and go snowboarding with her. Then I could switch back to my pedometer app and walk back home again.

Wouldn't that be cool?

Testing Your Hearing with the Apple iPhone

From the "what will they think of next" department, Bina’s Audiometry is an amazingly accurate hearing test app for your iPhone.

Measuring your threshold of hearing for sounds of different frequencies, you can use it to find out the frequency range you can hear. According to the developer, most people should be able to hear up to around 15 kHz, and in general frequencies around 17 kHz and higher can usually heard only be heard by people under 20.

Audiometry is an effective hearing test that measures your threshold of hearing for sounds of different frequencies - find out just how far your ears can hear ranging frequencies.

App is $0.99 in AppStore
