David Bowie's 'Golden Years' to be Rereleased as Remixable iOS App

David Bowie's 'Golden Years,' from his classic album 'Station to Station,' is coming to the Apple App Store on June 6th. You'll have the ability to remix the song by manipulating eight of the original instrument tracks, including vocals, guitar and percussion. Users will even be able to export their mixes as MP3s and share them with friends. Bowie released a similar edition of 'Space...

Condition ONE Makes War Footage Immersive and Interactive

Despite unceasing conflict around the globe, war journalism has fallen on hard times. In the words of award-winning war correspondent Danfung Dennis, the art of photojournalism is "dying." Dennis has created a new system, called Condition ONE, which he hopes will breathe new life into wartime videography by creating an immersive and interactive experience. There are several parts to the...

Simple 'Color' Hack Lets You Snag Anyone's Photos, Regardless of Location

The new social photo-sharing app 'Color,' which shares photos with and from everyone within a 150-foot radius, landed last week, and immediately garnered some raised eyebrows from those concerned with silly things like privacy. But sharing your photos with anyone and everyone who might walk down the same block as you seems like a trivial complaint, now that security researcher and Veracode chief...

Vimeo App Finally Hits the iPhone With Video Editing and Watch List

We met up with Vimeo's Andrew Pile down at SXSW to get an early look at the company's long-awaited iPhone app, which hit the App Store this morning. The new app gives you access to your videos, likes and 'Watch Later' list, all constituting a much-needed alternative to Vimeo's current mobile optimized site. The free app's built-in video editor offers an alternative to Apple's $4.99 iMovie with...

'Color' App Takes Your Photos Public, Shows Users in 150-Foot Radius

Lala founder Bill Nguyen's new 'Color' app is keeping the app hype machine rolling by raising $41 million... before launch. The Lala founder's app arrived today at Color.com (the domain having been purchased for a cool $350,000) with commentators claiming that it will "transform the way people communicate with each other." Nguyen has been given huge media exposure by everyone from the New York...

'Helicopter Taxi,' an Augmented Reality Toy for Kids

Augmented reality is fun but -- let's face it -- kinda gimmicky. Kids, though, they love gimmicky. The 'Helicopter Taxi' iPhone app lets children fly a virtual 3-D helicopter around the real world, picking up and dropping off virtual passengers along the way. It should be said that 'Helicopter Taxi' is not a game, as there are no points to earn or goals to achieve. This is a $1.99 digital...

iPad Gets Overpriced Companion Apps for Classic Albums

Here's an interesting push by the music industry. Universal Music Group has started selling iPad app versions of classic albums, including Nirvana's 'Nevermind,' Rush's '2112' and 'Moving Pictures,' and 'Ladies and Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones' by the Beatles Rolling Stones. The apps are billed as "interactive, socially aware, and Internet connected," and include video interviews, extensive...

New York Times Digital Subscription Plans Cuts Apple In on the Action

After over a year of planning, the New York Times has finally unveiled its new paywall system, and one of the major beneficiaries may wind up being Apple. In addition to selling website subscriptions directly to readers, the Times will offer plans through the Apple App Store. That means that, in compliance with Apple's new subscription policy, the paper will hand over 30-percent of the revenue...

Kraftwerk App Automatically Creates Krautrock Masterpieces

'Kraftwerk - Kling Klang Machine - No1' is the clumsiest name for an iDevice app we've seen. And at $8.99, it's no bargain -- which is a shame, because it's so cool. The app automatically generates music while also letting you manipulate sounds and loops using a retro, green-on-black display, though that description hardly does it justice. It's no 'GarageBand,' but it'll keep you knee-deep in...

iPad 2 Reviews Are In: Long Live the King

The first batch of iPad 2 reviews have landed. Predictably, most reviewers can't speak more highly of the latest Apple tablet. Then again, as Laptop Magazine's Mark Spoonauer points out, "Apple didn't need to do a lot to stay in the tablet lead." This isn't Apple playing catch-up or exploding into a new market; this the Cupertino crew simply treading water. And, if the reviews are to be...

iOS 4.3 Is Here: Personal Hotspot and App Store Improvements in Tow

iOS 4.3 has arrived, and with it a number of improvements to Apple's mobile OS. The biggest news is that the App Store will now recognize if you've previously purchased an app, and now iPhone 4s have access to the Personal Hotspot feature. Along with a bunch of bug fixes, Safari has also gotten a nice speed boost and you can finally reclaim the orientation lock button on the iPad. Fire up iTunes...

Foursquare 3.0 Goes 'Beyond the Check-In,' Adds Recommendations, Search

Foursquare has released an update for Android and iOS, bringing search functionality and a new Explore feature to the location-based service. Released just in time for SXSW 2011, Foursquare 3.0 offers recommendations to users via the new Explore menu. The suggestions are based on a variety of information, including places where they and their friends have checked in, locations that are popular...

'Situationist' App Asks Strangers To Touch You

Call me a jaded, anti-social New Yorker, but I spend an awful lot of my time avoiding awkward situations with complete strangers. So the 'Situationist' app for iPhone -- which allows you to upload a picture, geo-tag yourself and choose things that are "acceptable" for a stranger to do to you -- makes me a bit nervous. Sure, it might be a nice icebreaker to have an anonymous person come up to...

Electronic Piggy Bank Takes 'Change' From Credit Card

The high-tech Zenona Piggy Bank's purpose isn't immediately clear, but when has that ever stopped technology developers? Comprised of an iPhone, Arduino BT and credit card slot, the half-bank half-Tamagotchi gets sad when it's been too long without a payment. Just swipe your card, and a pittance equivalent to pocket change will be transferred to a separate account. Weird. ...

Avoid Tech With the Aid of an App

Despite being tech bloggers, we're all about unplugging for a while, and setting aside time to be tech-free. Reboot, a Jewish non-profit organization, also wants you to find time to unplug, specifically in honor of the sabbath. The group has created both a mobile app and Web app called 'Sabbath Manifesto,' which helps to remind you to disconnect, and allows you to tell others about your plans...
