One of my concerns with the iPhone and games is that is is possible to get a little too enthusiastic and when things hot up the iPhone becomes a little slippery. Couples with that is the difficulty of making accurate and fast taps on the screen and you have a recipe for disaster: a dropped [...]
Posimotion have overcome these fears with the $19.99 Helix gaming grip. This is basically a steering wheel style of holder allowing you to keep a good hold on your device and improves the tactile input whilst playing games. The design of the Helix is such that the iPhone can be installed in both portrait or landscape modes.

G-Park from Posimotion is a neat little iPhone application that helps you find your car when you park it in a town that you are not familiar with. This happened to me the other day when I went to Cambridge with some friends.
When you park your car you fire up G-Park and you hit the “Park Me!” button. This fires up the GPS to get your current location and stores it as the point to get you back to later.
I was in a multi-story car park so there was no GPS signal. I had a rough location from cell triangulation, but this wasnt good enough for me. I solved this quite simply by exiting the car park and starting again.
You can also take a picture and make notes about your location. I was parked on deck E in bay 52, so I made a quick note of this and off we went sight seeing.
I dont know if you are like me, but in a strange city I can often loose my sense of direction especially if I am chatting and taking photos rather than concentrating on where I am going.
G-Park really comes to the fore here. When you are ready to find your car simply start G-Park and then tap the “Where Did I Park?” icon and you will be taken to Maps with your current location and the car position together with a highlighted route to get there.
All you need to do now is follow the instructions and you will be directed to the place that you left the car. Simple!!!
