Sprint and Code Factory team up to deliver free Android accessibility app

Mobile Accessibility
Sprint, Boost and Virgin customers heading to the Android Market might notice something new called Wireless Accessibility (really just a rebranding of Mobile Accessibility). The app, designed by Code Factory, normally costs $99, but Sprint has struck a deal to offer it for free to its postpaid subscribers. The software delivers a simplified interface and provides audio prompts in synthesized Spanish and English to aid in navigation. The ability to have the phone announce what your finger is hovering over is particularly useful for the blind and those with poor eyesight who face even more obstacles in a world increasingly dominated by touchscreens. Check out the complete PR after the break and hit up the source to download Wireless Accessibility now.

A Metroid marriage proposal that would make the Chozo proud

Marriage is a sacred commitment; it's no kind of small thing to consider. You need to show you mean business. You need to put some effort into a proposal.

Jered McFerron did when he decided to rewrite the code for the 1986 NES classic, Metroid, in the C++ programming language. This undertaking wasn't initially to propose to his love, Jenni, but struck as an inspiration mid-project when he knew she was the gal for him.

His approach involved changing key parts of the game to guide her into a special room where Samus would be confronted by the red ring item from The Legend of Zelda, as seen in the image above. Luckily for Jered -- and all of us on the internet with a soft spot for romantic stories -- she said yes.

Withings Baby Monitor makes its official, expensive US debut

Withings Baby Monitor
The Withings Baby Monitor has already been available in the UK for sometime now and recently made a splash over at the FCC. Now the iOS accessory is finally for sale here in the good ol' US-of-A, for the rather staggering price of $299. That's right, this sensor-packed web cam probably costs more than your handset. Then again, that $20 set of audio-only monitors you picked up at Walmart can't keep you abreast of the temperature and humidity in your child's sleeping quarters or let you watch your newborn sleep with the aid of a night vision mode. You can get the associated WithBaby app for free in the iTunes App Store now. The only question is, whether or not you love your baby enough to spend $300 on an iPhone accessory. We won't judge you either way. Check out the PR after the break.
