From their Website, here’s how it works.
Have you been at the airport too far away from the TV to hear it? Or have you wanted to watch something on TV while others are sleeping or studying? The Tunity app offers a solution by streaming audio to your device, and at this writing, it’s free.
To get started, you simply hold your device in front of the TV and tap to run a scan (of a live show). Within seconds, the audio from the TV streams to your device. If the sound isn’t synced, the app offers a way to adjust it. The scanning doesn’t work with all cable networks, and antenna TV apparently doesn’t work.
Here is a how-to video on YouTube that’ll show you how it works.
Let me know what you think.
I was out recently and had to use GPS unexpectedly. You know how that drains the power in the iPhone. I had my car charger, but I didn’t have the iPhone cable.
I went shopping. I didn’t know if what I needed existed, but, of course, someone had solved the problem with this tangle-free lighting retractable cable with USB car charger.
This is small and compact enough so I keep it in my backpack/purse. The quality feels good, so I hope it’ll last.
I love gadgets that simplify my life. Now I won’t have to worry about being caught without my cable because it’ll be right where I need it.
Here’s a how-to video on setting your Safari browser in privacy mode on the iPad or iPhone. You’ll be able to browse without your site visits being tracked.

I’m setting up a video “studio” in my small home office. No matter the setup, having a traditional tripod with those wide legs just wasn’t working. This gadget just arrived, and it’s perfect. It’s a desktop tripod mount.
I still haven’t decided on my video platform, but with one more problem solved, I’ll figure it out soon.

I love gadgets that make my life easier or more fun. I have a full category on this blog for them. But I don’t just buy technology unless I need it, and need it right then. My latest is a Bluetooth headset.
The three main reasons I wanted this device: Listen to music or watch a video on my iPad, but not be wired to it; hear my iPhone ring when it’s in another part of the house (especially since I don’t have a landline); enjoy being in the same room with a football game but not have to hear it.
I didn’t want one of those tiny earpieces because they’re too easy to lose. I ended up buying an unbranded headset on Amazon. In addition to having great sound, it also has these great features.
You’ve probably set a password to access your iPhone or iPad (Settings/Passcode), and also have Auto-Lock set to kick in after so many minutes of non-use (Settings/General/Auto-Lock). This can be inconvenient when you have someone using your device to take photos (or record videos) of you while you’re speaking.
Instead of turning off Auto-Lock, do this. From the Lock screen (not the Home screen), look in the lower-right corner. You’ll see an almost transparent icon of the Camera app. Put a finger on it and flick up (not slide) to access the camera and video functions. They will not be able to access your other photos.
I needed a very long URL with /s that was too difficult to type in the browser bar (it’s also a link that wouldn’t have shown up if I’d Googled it). I copied the link and emailed it to my iCloud email address (or whatever email account you’ve set up on your device). When the email came in (on the iPad), I tapped the link to open it in Safari. Then added to Home Screen as outlined above.?

When someone responds to an email message that “yes” they’re going to do something and I see it comes from their phone, I have just about zero confidence that they’re going to remember to do it. Here’s why.
At my computer, I’m inside Outlook, and a new message arrives. I immediately drag it to my calendar or tasks with a reminder or an appointment. And depending on the situation, I might flag that message for follow-up. On the other hand, when I check email on my iPhone, I’m not going to do all that. Neither will you. You most likely look at the email, respond with a quick “yes,” and make no effort to put anything in place to help you remember.
When I MONITOR email, I’m just checking for anything I need to respond to right away (e.g., an inquiry from a reporter on a deadline, a cancelled meeting, etc.). Otherwise, I’ll deal with everything else when I’m in front of my computer because I can MANAGE better and easier.
