This Week in Tech Nyackology

Attention iPhone-toting, gadget-loving, bike-riding Nyackers. This week brings news of three new tech toys for you.

  • If you were an iPhone early adopter two years ago when the smart phone for everyman first appeared, Apple just announced a new iPhone 3G S — available two years to the day after the first iPhone AT&T contracts were set to expire. The 3G S features voice command to interact with your phone. And a new camera that lets you record video, too. And finally (drum roll please…): Copy and paste for the iPhone.
  • For city bikers who use Nyack as a destination or locals who want to get away, REI now offers a free downloadable iPhone app called Bike Your Drive to track your trip with GPS and smugly calculate your gas savings while cycling. It will also help you geotag your iPhone pictures, too.
  • And for those of you who think that your are as green as you can be, you’ve just been put to shame. By an 8th grader. Photo credit: The Solar Human Hybrid is a middle school science project from 14 year old David Dixon and his dad. There’s room for you and three friends to pedal with a solar powered low horsepower motor to get you up steep hills. It’s very cool — but is it up to a Rockland Lake ride via 5th avenue and 9W?
