This week I discovered a great tool for filming & then posting directly to YouTube. The free iOS app YouTube Capture allows you to film in the app and then post your footage directly to YouTube. This is is very easy to use. I created a step by step handout for first time users (below).

iCloud Syncing for Windows

Author: Mark Page-Botelho Posted: 2013-09-24

With Apple, Google, and Microsoft all vying for cloud based application dominance, Apple has joined the fray with their new iCloud interface for Windows. Google and Microsoft have their cloud based app interfaces already available on iOS and OS X, so Apple is playing catch up.

The new Windows interface for iCloud is actually pretty slick. It allows for syncing of bookmarks for Chrome,   Outlook, and photos. Each users gets 5gb of storage space for free. The syncing works just like DropBox, Google Drive, or SkyDrive. Just drag and drop files to the iCloud folder if dealing with photos. For Outlook and Chrome the shortcuts, and contacts will automatically be synced.  No user intervention is needed.

The only drawback is that only images can be stored on iCloud. It would be nice to be able to store other file types to sync across iOS and OS X. However the simplicity of storing the three different types of items are commonly used and will be useful to end users within and outside the Apple ecosystem. For those that use both Windows and Apple devices will find accessibility of their information useful especially as a backup of critical information.

Adafruit Trinket the Versatile Microcontroller

Author: Mark Page Posted: 2013-09-08

Trinket may be small, but do not be fooled by its size! It's a tiny microcontroller board, built around the Atmel ATtiny85, a little chip with a lot of power. We wanted to design a microcontroller board that was small enough to fit into any project, and low cost enough to use without hesitation. Perfect for when you don't want to give up your expensive dev-board and you aren't willing to take apart the project you worked so hard to design. It's our lowest-cost arduino-IDE programmable board!

New Era of Science Probes for the Classroom & Lab

Author: Mark Page-Botelho Posted: 2013-06-08

Motes Remotes are a new series of mini probes that are wireless, cheap and cloud based. They are designed from the ground up to be small and versatile. Currently for classroom labs schools are limited to the Vernier Labs and Texas Instrument probes which are expensive and proprietary. Wouldn't it be great if classroom could utilize laptops, desktops, tablets and smartphones? Motes although still in the initial "kickstarter" mode, they have a great promise to bring probes to examine the world around us in a more accessible way. hopefully this project reaches its goal and the motes remotes become readily available to schools.
