California Casinos to Nevada Casinos: Beware of Card Counting iPhone Apps

blackjack.jpg As the iPhone commercial says, “there’s an app for just about anything.” Want to get bruised up by security guards in a dark room behind a casino for counting cards? Yup there’s an app for that. Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, “California gaming authorities tipped off their Nevada counterparts to a blackjack card-counting program that can be used on either the Apple iPhone or the Apple iPod Touch portable music player.” Counting cards is not illegal in Nevada casinos (just ask these guys) but using a device like an iPhone app to help count cards is considered a felony. The cleverly titled “Blackjack Card Counter” app is still available in the iPhone App store for $3.99.

iPhone Fully Loaded

by Andy Ihnatko
See this book on Amazon »
“Finally, here you can read a technical text specifically written to increase your knowledge and skills beyond the basic usage. iPhone was created to be a popular electronic gadget and thus universal ease-of-use is part of its design. The user manual and basic iPhone texts add little to what is learned by using the phone and exploring its features. iPhone Fully Loaded spends its entire content on advanced and techie applications of iTunes and iPhone. Anyone who benefits from iPhone ownership will seek to get more out of one’s device. The online resources related to iPhone are probably the best help available but iPhone Fully Loaded is rich enough to rank equal with the best of them. I recommend this book very much.”

“How to Do Everything with Your iPhone This text takes care of all the essential topics and additional ones to make a successful book on iPhone. The writing is detailed and the illustrations are not redundant. The best approach is to read the text one time and use the iPhone until the features are learned well. One can use the text as reference beyond the initial reading and it will be useful. I recommend this text.” (Updated 1 second ago)

My iPhone (2nd Edition)

by Brad Miser
See this book on Amazon »
“I would say My iPhone is a very interesting text: It has over 300 pages of color illustrations showing very little more than what a basic manual would. And the instructions are expanded so much even the least able reader can follow them. The text may be thick and attractive page after page but only covers a few topics beyond the basics of the software. It definitely makes a nice gift-wrapped present to someone who has an iPhone but I would not recommend buying it.”

iPhone VISUAL Quick Tips

“Anyone who uses iphone will learn a few new things from this book but overall it is only a manual in color and more details. It is a glorified manual for a popular device. I recommend it as a quick preview before buying or as a color manual.”
