Media Mondays: RipIt

My son is a super fan of the movie Wall-E and when I tried to rip it for my iPhone and his iTeddy – using Handbrake the entire movie was out of sequence which even though did not seem to phase E, it bothered me to no end that my son was watching a completely scrambled movie. I did some research and found that other people had this same issue with Disney movies in particular and by using a little app called RipIt – the movie would be available in the correct order. As advertised, the application is really simple and it worked great. This is now my tool of choice for ripping DVDs. If you have any issues with out of order movies (especially Disney) – look no further.

Jappler Recommends: iTeddy

Believe it or not, there are some days when I do not feel like watching Wall-E. My son Evan does not seem to agree with me, but that is ok because he has an iTeddy The iTeddy is like a iPod within a stuffed animal. It hold music, videos, and pictures and allows Evan to quietly enjoy what he wants to watch on trips or whenever he wants to watch movies, listen to music (before bed), or to look at family pictures. iTeddy charges by USB, comes with a 1 gig memory stick to start with, and has a wonderful lock button so Evan’s manic button pressing does not stop the media and produce a meltdown. This is definitely cool!
