To get the iPad 4 compatibility rather obviously requires the Lightning connector equipped version, which costs the same as the iPad 3 version. Whichever you need, the premise is the same: upload your photos to your iPad directly from your camera. Insert the SD card into the device, make sure it is toggled to the SD setting, and your iPad will display your images and enable you to import them. …

This one is for UK-based DaniWeb members, or those of you who are visiting the UK and want to be able to charge your smartphone via a USB mains charger that is neither bulky or heavy. I'm not usually the type of person to get excited by a plug, honestly, but I will make an exception for the Mu. ![Mu02](/attachments/small/0/Mu02.jpg "align-right") The designer of the Mu, Min-Kyu Choi, says that he was frustrated by the dimensions of a traditional plug and thought that it was about time to redesign something that dated back to 1947 and hadn't really changed much …

I'm not the greatest artist in the world, but I do like to tinker with a bit of sketching. When my vision deteriorated to the point of this becoming difficult, I turned to my iPad for assistance. Using a stylus and a drawing app I found I was able to continue sketching. The ability to magnify the canvas to whatever was comfortable for me has, quite literally, been an eye opener. ![ekit01](/attachments/small/0/ekit01.jpg "align-right") There is no doubting though, that digital art is a very different beast to getting your fingers dirty with some charcoal and a piece of paper.

The media, online and off, has been full of scare stories about the 'biggest Internet attack ever' and how a distributed denial of service (DDoS) campaign aimed against anti-spam outfit Spamhaus peaked at an attack volume of 300 Gbps (the highest ever recorded by those who record such things) was 'slowing down the global Internet'. DaniWeb didn't join the rush to shout 'the sky is falling' as, frankly, we didn't believe it as there was precious little evidence to be found that the DDoS attack was impacting anyone other than Spamhaus along with it's anti-DDoS protection service CloudFlare and their …

Some might argue that there are already quite enough different versions of Angry Birds to last a lifetime, or at least a lifetime of minutes to waste on a mobile gaming platform such as a smartphone or tablet. There is some merit to this, and personally I would be quite happy if Rovio just kept adding new levels and new birds with new attack capabilities to the original game. I wouldn't even mind if they charged me a small fee for these new additions by way of in-game purchases, as the game would still represent excellent value for money. We …

At the risk of being somewhat obsessed by hitmen after [one recent news story](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/news/441025/dont-be-fooled-by-the-fake-hitman-scam) here at DaniWeb, I'm running another.

When you look at the iTunes download charts you will always find an Angry Bird perched towards the top. That's quite simply because this game app has been the undoubted number one commercial and cultural success story of the App Store. The app developers, Rovio, have been accused in the past of cashing in on this success by rehashing the same format with different backgrounds and a new bird or two under the guise of a 'new' game. A new game that will cost you if you want to play, of course. Personally I don't have a problem with this …

This special edition of the Guinness World Records book will appeal to geeks and nerds the world over. Not just because it is packed full of the kind of trivia that we all thrive on in social situations, but also because that trivia is firmly based in the realm of video gaming. Previous editions have been described as being a veritable gaming almanac, and this sixth installment of the series does nothing to degrade that opinion. It's packed with facts, figures, lists, stats and high quality imagery. ![dweb-guinness01](/attachments/small/0/dweb-guinness01.jpg "align-right")It's also more than just a collection of lists though, the 2013 …

Windows has had optimization tools built in for ages now, so surely the days of PC optimization suites are long over?

If you take one look at the deadmau5 portable speakers from KitSound and immediately think that they have been inspired, somewhat badly, by Mickey Mouse then I'm afraid you are showing your age and lack of cool.

Microsoft has been slowly moving away from the desktop PC software market for many years now, and with the recent launches of Windows 8 and the Surface tablets, along with the latest Windows Phone devices, the whole mobile and touch arena has taken quite a bit of the consumer-oriented focus.

Product Review HandShoeMouse

[ATTACH=right]15223[/ATTACH]The box that the HandShoeMouse arrived in proudly claims that this is "the only mouse that fits like a glove" although I'd take issue with that. You don't wear it like a glove, but rather it wears you. The glove analogy does hold up when it comes to the pre-purchase ritual, however, as this is the first time I have ever needed my hand to be measured before I could purchase a mouse! The vendor website guides you through the process, with a separate order route for right and left handed users. It's not overly complicated, which is handy if …

Continuing the Lord of the Rings theme that I started with in the title of this review, I believe it is Gandalf who says "there is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power" but he sure wasn't saying it to the One|Cable. It exists to share power between most every kind of mobile device you own, apart from those that have a proprietary charging connector which are not made by Apple. As long as your smartphone, tablet, satnav, MP3 player, Bluetooth headset etc etc accepts either …

Last year I reviewed the original Kensington KeyFolio Pro case with integrated keyboard, and liked it so much I have been using it on a daily basis ever since. With a DaniWeb rating of 9 out of 10, there really wasn't much room for improvement. So when Kensington released the KeyFolio Pro 2 earlier this year I was dubious that it could actually be worth the upgrade. Having now spent some time hands-on with latest version of this must-have iPad peripheral for the jobbing journalist, writer or coder, I am happy to report that my cynicism was unfounded.

When I hear the word 'powerstation' I immediately conjure up images of either a mega-screen laptop or some seriously beefy server hardware. Mophie, however, likes to think smaller. Much smaller, apart from when it comes to naming products that is. The Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Duo is one heck of a mouthful for such a small device, measuring a fairly diminutive 2.5" x 4.25" x 0.75" and weighing in at less than 200g. The 'Duo' is big brother to the even smaller 'Mini' (costing $59.95) which is a tiddly 1.75" x 3.5" x 0.5" and weighs just 82g. Don't let …

The Kensington Presentair isn't the smallest 'laser pointer' on the planet, measuring in at 60mm x 70mm x 210mm and weighing 25g. Nor is it the cheapest with that $69.99 price tag. However, most of all it isn't just a laser pointer and thinking of it in those terms is something of a mistake. Sure, the Presentair does include a red class 2 laser but that's just the start of it.

The Kensington Folio Trio Mobile Workstation for new iPad and iPad 2 is rather a large title for what is actually just a case. Mind you, it's also rather a large case. This thing is absolutely huge. No, seriously, it's actually bigger in all dimensions than my laptop. This thing is 14" by 11", and 1.5" thick with an iPad in.

DaniWeb recently reported [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/netbooks-tablets-and-mobile-devices/news/376700/1621471"]how Apple had won a ban on the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Europe [/URL] and even [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/netbooks-tablets-and-mobile-devices/news/376718"]published the rather generic-looking design drawings[/URL] at the heart of the case. Now a Düsseldorf regional court judge, Johanna Brueckner-Hoffmann, has heard the Samsung appeal against the ban and concluded that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 gives a "clear impression of similarity" to the iPad: the result being that the ban has been upheld, but only in Germany rather than being across the EU. If [URL="http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/09/21/samsung_could_block_iphone_5_in_europe_patent_wars_rumble_on/"]reports[/URL] are to be believed, Samsung could fight back with an attempt …

Kudos have to go to Apple for taking the totally dead, and I mean Dodo dead, consumer tablet computing concept and not only breathing new life into it but turning it into an object of desire with the iPad.
