Vcommunicator

Even the military is Apple friendly. It has supplied iPod software to soldiers that speaks Arabic and Kurdish so that they can chat with the local population The report, issued in February’s National Defense Magazine, says that they are guided by a Vcommunicator application, which can also be used to read maps, study missions, and can be connected to a speaker or megaphone. What do you suppose the locals will do when one of our troops slips up and plays a bit of U2 by accident? The technology will soon be available for us civilians.

500XL Speakers

We guess we aren’t the only ones who fret that we might lose our iPod buds in our ear canals. Witness the 500XL Desktop Speakers with a built-in amplifier and powered by batteries or AC adapter (not included.) While we are afraid that there may be some feedback involved with the placement, we think that at the very least we wouldn’t have to be worried that we left them in our pocket or in the car. Pre-order for the MSRP of $39.99 from perpetual kid.

iPhone Zoom LensIt’s not like we never mention the iPhone around here, so we felt it only fitting to toss in an accessory for the gadget. The Motorola 6x optical zoom lens might be a possibility. This simple clear case clicks over the camera and its eye on your phone’s back. It might look a little weird but at $15.00, it’s worth a shot (pun intended.) The lens will work with many other models of cell phones as well. Let us know your results should you try one out.
