A new App for the iPhone by Hipstamatic brings back the look, feel, unpredictable beauty, and fun of plastic toy cameras from the past.  Before taking a picture, you can change your lens, flash or film with the swipe of your finger.  Each option creates a unique touch, so you can mix and match to your favorite combo for the exact picture effect you want. Digital Photography Never Looked So… Analog.

You can take a screenshot of whatever is on your iPad 2 / iPhone 4 by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button (top right) while quickly pressing and releasing the Home button (bottom center).  The screenshot will appear among your Photos.  This function is awesome if you receive a really funny text that you want to pass along (in all it’s glory) to your friends.

Notice your iPad 2 / iPhone 4 didn’t come with a large printed user manual (that’s just not Apple’s style).  The guide is available in PDF from Apple’s Web site, or you can read it in iBooks (available as a free download in the App Store). Make sure to download the manual for iOS 4.3.

For your inner spy, there’s a video pen!

Sometimes while I venture around Manhattan between meetings, I occasion Brookstone to play with their latest gadgets.  I often joke that if reincarnation is true, then in my previous life I must have been a spy; so it should come as no surpise that on my recent visit to Brookstone, I found myself instanly in love with this awesome Video Spy Pen.
