IPhone in Indoneisia, rock video contest, reviews

07/29, 9:05pm

Odd photo found on iPhone

In brief: Apple joins 80's rock band Asia for video contest, the iPhone may be coming to Indonesia, seyDoggy releases RapidWeaver theme, a strange photo found on a brand new ipohone, and MacNN posts reviews of Griffin's new FM adaptors for iPod and and Maxpower's new 802.11g USB stick. Griffin Technology's two latest accessories, the RoadTrip and iTrip Autopilot with SmartScan bring improved technology to the iPod FM adapter market. The RoadTrip is an iPod cradle with an FM tuner mounted on a small gooseneck that plugs into a car's cigarette lighter. The smaller iTrip AutoPilot -- which works with the iPhone as well as the iPod -- houses the FM adaptor in a small box without an iPod cradle. Both devices come with Griffin's SmartSound technology for cleaner sound. We have also reviewed Newer Technology's MaxPower 802.11 USB wireless adapter intended for Macs with older wireless cards, or no wireless access. The adapter works with 802.11n/b/g, and includes an optional cradle.
