  4. iPad - System Wide Voice Control

    Ok so it's not true system wide access, but pretty darn close. Using a few apps, and a little jailbreak action, Justin Riley shows us how to control some basic functionality with just voice. Here we demonstrate adjusting the iPod, finding a place to eat, and even posting a tweet.

    Open your mind and imagine when iOS 4 comes out and vlingo can be backgrounded. The goal of vlingo is to allow any developer and their application to use the vlingo voice recognition engine to do whatever the developer wants with voice. So eventually everything you ever wanted to do will be able to do with voice.

    (p.s) still don't text and drive, even if you can do it with your voice!

  5. iPad - Keeping Your Eyes on the Road with Gestures.

    Justin Riley shows off us, on his custom iPad mount, how you can easily control some basic iPad functions with lots of gestures. After you do the quick 2 minute jailbreak (you wanted to do it anyway) you can enable a plethora of gesture controls. Slide from bottom up, top down, from status bar, tap and hold, pinch and even shake. And you can actually assign these gestures to anything you want.

    So you basically end up with a 9.7 inch touch pad, which IMO is easy to use w/o looking at the screen at all. Drive Responsibly™.
