Basically a ripoff of urban dictionary:

Cop-Slang

Move along… nothing to see here, or pay 99 cents for.

I’m surprised Police Magazine would sign off on something as shitty looking as this.  My guess is the app company that made it for them sold them the dream, and they believed it.  “OMG GUISE WITH YOUR TRAFFIC YOU’LL EASILY MAKE 100K A WEEK OFF THIS APP” haha I’ve heard it all before.

I do like how “Ass Hat” and “Turd Cutter” are in the screenshot though hahaha

Thoughts?

Text your mom while you’re double tapping tangos; tell her you might be late for supper:

Inteliscope-main

June pre-order for $70 over at Inteliscopes.

Meh I’m not a fan, I’m sure they will sell like hotcakes though.  Even if I owned an iPhone you wouldn’t find me throwing one of these on my AR-15.  I don’t need something 4.5″ / 4.87″ wide (iPhone 4s/5) with a plastic hood increasing my drag when I operate in operations.  Not as wide obviously if you put in it portrait mode, but then you might as well strap a water ski to the top of your AR-15 because you just added lots of height.  If you’re not about drag reduction then what are you about cousin?

Cowwadoody nerds are going to love the video recording capabilities.  So many hunting head shots going up on vine and youtube… I can see it now.

Nothing like trading in the few thousand dollar Nightforce for a screen with digital zoom.  There are some more pictures and video up on the Intelliscope Facebook page, but no real life close look at it that I could see… just a lot of renders and tv quality video from a distance.

InteliscopeI can’t wait until some newb throws this on a .50, puts his face real close and the metaphorical hand of Steve Jobs slaps the shooter across the face for embarrassing shooters and iPhone users simultaneously.

At the end of the day, all the power to this company for making a product for one of the most popular smartphones which people are bound to get at least the $70 sticker price worth of enjoyment out of.

Considering the camera is off far to the one side, I wonder how you properly zero?

If I ever do get an opportunity to try this thing out, you better believe I’m going to be streaming some Chief Keef, dumping mags until the barrel droops like a wet noodle.

Richard Ryan slays an iPod Touch:

Interesting choice using a Webley Revolver and MP40.  The slow motion footage is Top Douchebag style sick!

Pretty cool that the slower rounds really tore that thing up.

Thoughts?  Getting sick of this “shoot an apple product” trend yet?  It seems to be working for Richie Rich so I doubt it will stop.

Ballistics apps for the iphone I can stomach… this just looks retarded:

Full story on the press release – HERE

I’m really at a loss for words with this one… It would absolutely make my day if I ever saw someone using any of those setups in real life.

Isn’t the whole point of night vision in special ops to also remain hidden in the darkness while you’re scoping things out?  How’s that going to work with a big display screen lighting everything up?  Even on the lowest brightness, those screens are still plenty bright when in the dark.  Is the point of using a screen rather then the regular eye piece so that 5 guys can be huddled around it at once?  If not, what is the point?  There is a lot of extra bulk, especially on the ipad example in the pic… but i’m thinking that particular setup might be for a tri-pod or vehicle application.

The eye-pieces on those things must be pretty strong if they can take mounting like that and resist a decent amount of shock.

I thought there was a chance this might just be a troll,  mainly because the Special Operations Apps website looks suspect and doesn’t have any real info on it.  Some more digging though, which lead me to US Night Vision where they sell the iPhone mount and iPad mount for $269 and $499 respectively. *facepalm*

It will be nice if/when night vision cameras are mirrorless someday.  This is one piece of technology that looks like it’s stuck back in the 90s.

New Apple game called Ready Steady Bang:

Pretty simple game, you play against a cowboy in a duel.  Pretty cool that people are getting rich off these 99cent iDevice games.  

Rant:

I really don’t feel like I’m missing by only having a Motorola Xoom, which by the way still holds the spot of being the #1 best electronic device I’ve ever owned.  The hardware is incredible, and the software is made by google… so yea it’s amazing too.  

I’ll probably never buy an Apple product again.  Not because of the quality (it’s obviously top notch), but because of the restrictions (both software and hardware) on all of their devices.   Yea you can get relatively cheap 3rd party cables and software, and even jailbreak the phones… but why should I have to pay or do some work to make the device function as it rightfully should?

For the Apple ipad2:

The technology was originally invented by NASA to be used by autonomous vehicles on space missions. Our implementation uses the camera of the mobile device to build 3D maps of the surroundings in real-time and determine the device’s location and orientation within these maps.

Sounds and looks really interesting!  I’d like to see it used for a more graphic intense realistic looking FPS game.

You can buy it at the Apple App Store if you have an ipad2 – HERE
