This is pretty interesting, and fairly relevant considering the Super Bowl is later today. The folks over at Impakt Protective have come up with a g-force sensor that fits inside a helmet, and measures the impact a player sustains from a tackle or collision.
If a player is hit too hard, the sensor, which is appropriately named the Shockbox, will send a color-coded alert to a designated iPhone or other mobile device. Impakt is hoping that this will help curb the growing rate of sports-related head injuries… Read More

We haven’t seen a publicly released untethered jailbreak since iOS 6 debuted in September, and Apple hasn’t been making the wait easy for the jailbreak community. There are the little annoyances, like apps exclusive to iOS 6, over the air update alerts, and that pesky notification badge in settings that appears by default. Some of these are easy to deal with through tweaks, but what happens when Apple isn’t being subtle?
A user on Reddit asked Siri when the superbowl was starting, only to find that his personal assistant refused to comply. Siri’s response: “If you update to the latest version of iOS, I’ll be able to help you with that.” … Read More

When Apple unveiled its new Passbook app this summer, the tech world, for the most part, wasn’t sure what to make of it. It seemed like a good idea on paper, but would companies, and more importantly users, take advantage of it?
Fast forward to today, three weeks after the public release of iOS 6, and we haven’t quite seen the adoption we were hoping for. However, it does appear that the companies that have added Passbook support are seeing positive results… Read More

Watching sports — even for the most diehard enthusiast — is always more fun with fellow fans around. You can talk coaching decisions, argue over penalties, and relive highlight plays. But what do you do if no one’s around?
Take to Twitter is the obvious answer. But it’s tough to keep a conversation going with other sports fans in between non-sports tweets, in 140 character increments. So the folks at Yapp Media came up with SportsYapper… Read More

Even better is the fact that the iPad is now officially receiving Siri support! Read More

Bloomberg is out with a new report this afternoon, claiming that Apple is in talks with Disney to bring its WatchESPN app to the Apple TV. The app, which is currently available on the iPhone and iPad, allows existing ESPN subscribers to watch sporting events on the go.
Apple TV already contains apps from the NBA, MLB, and NHL — all of which provide live broadcasts of league games to subscribers. But ESPN’s offering would feature much more rounded coverage, including basketball, baseball, golf, soccer, tennis and more… Read More

This is kind of cool. The Denver Post is reporting today that its hometown NFL team, the Denver Broncos, has decided to swap out its bulky 500+ page playbooks for Apple’s slim and trim tablet. The football team just purchased 120 iPads.
The organization feels that the tablet gives it a competitive advantage over its opponents. Not only is the iPad more mobile, but its library of available software gives it the capability to help players and coaches do far more than study plays… Read More
