Singapore Airlines announced the first-ever flights featuring iPod and iPhone connectivity on KrisWorld starting this week on its newly reconfigured, all-Business Class Airbus A340-500 flights between New York and Singapore, and between Los Angeles and Singapore from August."Singapore Airlines announced the first-ever flights featuring iPod and iPhone connectivity on KrisWorld starting this week on its newly reconfigured, all-Business Class Airbus A340-500 flights between New York and Singapore, and between Los Angeles and Singapore from August."

Not sure when I will ever get the chance to try out the new entertainment system but it sure sounds slick. Each seat has a 15.4-inch LCD screen and noise-cancellation headphones to go along with the iPod/iPhone connectivity. That is the way to travel.

Griffin Navigate for the iPhone

"The Navigate may seem like just an ordinary iPod remote, and indeed it can be used that way. A nice bonus is that you can also use it with the iPhone, which could be a good thing if you're not crazy about the iPhone's touch screen controls (Also pretty useful when you're driving and need to not look at the screen)."

Not another remote is what you might be thinking right now. However, Griffin has put a twist on it by adding an FM Tuner and OLED display. And for iPhone users, you can plug your favorite mic/headset combo into the remote so you can still use your phone. In addition, Griffin plans on releasing an iTunes Application called iFM in March 2009 which will work in conjunction with The Navigate. iFM will use a tuning menu based on geographic locations to list nearby FM stations, or you can select by city. iFM will be free download (the cost of the Navigate is listed at $59.99 USD on the Griffin site). Sounds like a nice remote, especially for commuters that have issues with the screen controls on the iPhone (like me).

"Just a reminder as Macworld Expo heads into the home stretch, the iPhone/iPod touch travel application HearPlanet is available for free this week only."

Interesting application that has audio tours of over 230,000 locations. Normally $3.99 USD from the iTunes Application Store, it's free at least until tomorrow, the last day of Macworld.

iLuv i1166 iPod Multimedia Player

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone & iPod Touch" @ 03:00 PM

"iLuv has been on a serious roll here lately, and just when you thought it couldn't possibly pump out another iPod clock radio, well, it couldn't. Instead, it's offering up a 9-inch portable multimedia player which accepts content via USB, SD card or MMC card."

This was announced at CES 2009 and managed to win a "Best Innovation 2009" award in the process. This product lists a wide variety of media it is compatible with including DVDs and iPods. I checked the website for iLuv and it is not yet listed as one of their products so no word yet on price. Also no info on if it works with iPhones or just the iPod. The Engadget article didn't mention iPhones (nor did any of the others I read), so my guess is it would still be subject to the interference issue if used with an iPhone.
