Ipad in the Car, Remote Control and All!

My love for the ipad grow more every day! I have mentioned before how we now use it in the car like a DVD player and thought I would show you some fun and cool accessories!

First up: Griffin Cinema Seat

It costs more than it should but after spending a day with my arm stretched out holding the ipad up for piggy, I was Ok with paying the $.  It has a mesh pocket on back for storage and a velcro strap to wrap around the head rest in the car.

Next is the equivalent of finding a unicorn because it took alot of searching! a REMOTE control for the ipad. Someone needs to make an app that your iphone can use to remotely control the ipad! STAT
Until then for $8 you can get this on ebay:
Pretty sure I pulled a muscle trying to reach into the back seat and rewind Einstein on the way home from my parents house after Christmas!

The mesh pocked on the back of the cinema seat is the perfect spot to store the remote and the remote receiver when not in use.

and next is some great software called HANDBRAKE. It is a free download and what you will use to rip your personal DVD collection into itunes and be able to load them onto your ipad.

Recently I learned that you can download music and movies from amazon and their prices are better than itunes. You just drag your downloads into itunes and it will show up with all of your other content. Maybe you guys all knew that and I am just late to the party?

Man, I need an ipad!

We were just learning about Handbrake yesterday. It's great for use with an Apple TV too. We hope to set up our Apple TV today or this weekend and try out some of this stuff! I need to probably spend hours organizing my iTunes and deleting a lot of the crap I have........
