  • a way to hack the iPad so that it displayed the iPad’s entire interface (as this was something we intended to show to our audience) via a standard projector connection rather than Elmo, we’d be ahead of the game. I discovered that alternative in the form of a jailbroken iPad. Specifically, with the help of a tethered jailbreak, Apple’s $29 iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter, and Ryan Petrich’s $2 Display Out (available through the BigBoss Repository in Cydia), our audience enjoyed a crystal-clear view of my iPad.

  • Click on “Menu -> Machines” button, and there’s the “+” button to start adding connections. Connecting to all of the other machines on my network was a snap, but remember that spelling counts here; if the name of the computer for the machine you’re connecting to isn’t exactly right, it won’t connect. This is the one place FileBrowser fails to live up to expectations for me… If you could browse network devices and just choose one, it would be a total lock, but adding machines could prove to be a bit annoying. Once the machine name and login information is supplied, the connection is instantaneous, and this thing is fast!

  • Until now, artists have been limited to using their fingers or eraser-like styluses, but this is set to change with the introduction of the Nomad Brush, which is made with capacitive fibers to give creative types the same “feel” as if they were painting normally. Designed by artist and architect Don Lee, the US$24 Nomad Brush works on all capacitive screens, including iPhones, iPod touches and iPads (and even the Samsung Galaxy if you’re tempted by the Android side). “Nomad brush is carefully hand-crafted and made with exceptionally conductive materials,” says Lee. “This allows the brush to be extremely responsive, making brushstrokes immediate and effortless on any capacitive touchscreen device.” -TUAW
