Take away the house advantage at your weekly poker game with Bold Poker ($2). This ingenious little app runs on iOS and lets you replace your standard deck of cards with an iPad and a bunch of iPhones or iPod touches. Each Hold’em player views their cards on a separate device, while an iPad in the middle keeps track of the board cards and automatically re-deals when you move the dealer button. It may handle betting, but at least it can’t be accused of stacking the deck. [via] Source:Bold Poker

The tablift is deigned to hold the iPad in a stable and optimal viewing position regardless of how uneven the surface it is resting on. The solution uses four, independently adjustable legs for stability. It also has a low center of gravity to protect from tipping over.
Some of the viewing angles possible with the tablift include sitting, reclining, and lying down. The solution, compatible with all three generations of the iPad, also works as a desktop stand with many configurations.
Here’s a quick introduction video about the project. Click here if you can’t see the video.
I have mixed feelings about the tablift. While I think it looks somewhat useful, it seems like the iPad must be out of a case to operate. And while the folded configuration of the stand is pretty compact, it looks really large unfolded.
Just a couple of weeks after updating the iPad version of its flagship app, MoboTap has now released another update to Dolphin Browser for iPad. What’s more, it has also sent out a separate but similar update to Dolphin Browser for iPhone.
Some of the changes implemented in the latest iteration of Dolphin Browser for iPhone are carryovers from the previous update to its iPad counterpart. These are password saving, autocomplete, and Dolphin Connect.
Password saving, of course, pertains to the app’s ability to store your login credentials for certain sites. Autocomplete enables the app to remember your browsing history, bookmarks, and searches, thereby facilitating URL and keyword typing. And Dolphin Connect lets you sync your bookmarks across all your devices.
More changes common to both versions of Dolphin Browser are brought by their respective updates today. Password saving has been improved, so that you can specify which passwords you wish to be remembered. Exporting of your Dolphin downloads is also now possible via iTunes Share.
An improvement exclusive to the iPhone version is support for other languages for search using Dolphin Sonar. And on the iPad version only, the keyboard is hidden upon tapping a blank area of the screen.
This twofold treat from MoboTap no doubt makes Dolphin Browser an even better Safari alternative. But I’d still like to see Dolphin Sonar make its way to the iPad version, too. And add full Retina display support in there for good measure.

mobile devices have changed the day-to-day workplace routine for many people. However, that doesn’t mean we’ve completely removed paper from the equation. This is where the clipboard+ accessory comes in, a new Kickstarter project whose creators are now looking for funding.
Created by a team of Penn State students, Clipboard+ came about because of the frustrations associated with using smartphone technology to aid in doing work on paper. The result is an all-in-one solution that works simultaneously with mobile technology and the traditional pen, paper, and clipboard.
Clipboard+ is available in two varieties: iPad and Smartphone.
The first, which works with both the iPad 2 and new iPad, is made of lightweight anodized aluminum and includes a cushioning foam liner.
Clipboard+ iPad features include:
- With a simple flip, Clipboard+ iPad allows for an effortless transition between working with paper on the clipboard side to working with your iPad on the backside.
- Paper and iPad together in one package means that you never have to carry both again.
- Sleek design encourages easy storage and transportation
- Holes at the top of the clipboard allow for attachment of a shoulder strap for maximum portability and use of both hands.
The Clipboard+ Smartphone, meanwhile, fits any smartphone or case with a flat, non-porous rear surface. It includes an industrial strength suction cup that maintains a firm grip on the device. Additionally, the phone can be oriented both horizontally and vertically.
According to Clipboard+ founder, Kevin Merlini:
You can get your hands on a Clipboard+ Smartphone accessory with a pledge of $20. For $40, you’ll receive a Clipboard + iPad. Additional levels of support are also available.
The Clipboard+ team hopes to raise $10,000 by July 18 in order to get the project into production.
Take a look:
The Clipboard+ looks like a functional, yet inexpensive solution for anyone that needs an iDevice and a clipboard to get their job done.
Creating this bread box charging station is pretty simple: Drill a hole in the back for the power-strip cord and insert a rubber grommet. Then use MDF board for the divider, with 1/4-inch slits for the cords.
