Hands On: The Mosaic Photobook

Hands On: The Mosaic PhotobookThe touchscreen will not replace the book. Until some possible future when the two technologies are indistinguishable from each other, the tangible, sensuous, unpowered nature of the book will never give way to cold, glowing glass. Mosaic proved that once again when it was revealed in October, and now it’s live and available to all iPhone owners.
Mosaic is an iPhone app that lets you print dreamlike photo albums on demand. You choose up to 20 photos from your phone’s camera roll, arrange them in a virtual photobook in the Mosaic app, tap ‘Place Order,’ and the real book arrives on your doorstep in days…

The development of the app is handled by our parent company AOL, not TUAW, so we don’t have control over when the app is updated for things like the new iPhone 5 screen. Even more frustratingly, there is no iPad version of the TUAW app, and we don’t know when one will be available. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that we have a mobile version of our website. Actually, we have two: http://m.tuaw.com and http://i.tuaw.com, both of which work extremely well on both the iPhone 5 and the iPad…

Nokia Lumia 920 PureView camera hands-on vs Samsung Galaxy S IIIThe Nokia Lumia 920 in its AT&T iteration has landed on the SlashGear test bench complete with PureView imaging and Carl Zeiss wide-angle optics this week – so of course it’s immediately time to test it against the Samsung Galaxy S III. We’ll be testing its camera against the iPhone 5 as well rather soon – and whatever other devices you request as well – but first it’s time to battle one of the biggest competitors Nokia has in the field. The Samsung Galaxy S III wasn’t originally pushed specifically on its photo-taking abilities nearly so much as the Lumia 920 has been, so pay close attention to how they compare in some real-world tests…

iPhone takes flight on a model rocket to capture data using techBASIC

Back in the 1970s before the advent of personal computers, I was a model rocket geek. Using thin tubing, balsa wood, plastic, glue and toxic paints to build lightweight rockets that could soar thousands of feet into the air, I never thought that some day people would be able to actually launch small data-collection computers into the air. Now the folks at Byte Works — the developers of techBASIC for iOS (US$14.99) — have done just that, using an iPhone 4s and a custom-designed model rocket…
