REVIEW: Attido Mobile PassWallet Apple Passbook App for Android
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:54 CET under 08 - Reviews

You might have noticed that I'm currently travelling quite frequently by aircraft which means I have to carry and to take care of a lot of boarding passes which allow me to pass TSA, give me access to airline lounges as well as finally allow me to enter my flights. Sure, whenever possible, I'm checking in online from my smartphone and nowadays it's pretty common to receive the boarding pass with a 2D bar code on the phone. No more ticket printing, no more check-ins on airports and there's one handy app I'm using quite frequently recently: PassWallet for Android by Attido Mobile. PassWallet brings support for Apple's Passbook mobile tickets to the Android platform and allows to collect all kind of tickets and coupons.

REVIEW: HTC Car StereoClip (Aux) Bluetooth Dongle
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:25 CET under 08 - Reviews

Announced earlier this year, the HTC Car StereoClip (Aux) is finally available in many countries. The Car StereoClip (Aux) allows to wirelessly stream music from an HTC phone (as well as other Android, Windows Phone and iOS phone manufacturers are supported) through the car stereo speakers. The setup is pretty straight forward by just plugging the adaptor into a 3.5 mm auxiliary port and connecting the smartphone after via Bluetooth to the dongle. That said, the Car StereoClip (Aux) supports Bluetooth 2.1+EDR as well as the required A2DP Bluetooth protocol for streaming stereo audio from supported smartphones to the dongle. Furthermore, if connected with an HTC device with Beats Audio support, it features CSR aptX codex and automatically turns on the device's Beats enhancements which makes a real difference.

QUICKVIEW: Windows To Go - Microsoft Windows 8 for the Key Ring [with Video]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:37 CET under 08 - Reviews

Doesn't matter if we like the new Windows 8 Metro look and feel or we argue about the missing Start button, Windows 8 is Microsoft's future of Windows for all kind of PCs, laptops, tablets and well - even USB sticks! While it's clear that a Windows OS will for sure work on PCs and laptops, the support for ARM based, so called SoC (System on Chip) tablets, is something new but Windows 8 comes with another feature which hasn't caught too much attention yet, something Microsoft simply calls "Windows To Go". Windows To Go allows to install a full version of Windows 8 on a USB stick which then can be booted on any PC. In my humble opinion, this is idea is big and ground breaking.
