Early last year, Steve Jobs released his infamous Thoughts on Flash open letter to the world, starting an ensuing slap-fight between Apple and Adobe that still runs hot and cold to this very day. As part of the dust-up, Apple disallowed the use of Flash as a tool for iOS development, and in the process, removed much of the value from Adobe's Flash Packager software--a program geared very much towards the development of Flash-based smartphone applications. A few months later, Apple reversed their verdict on Flash-free development, thereby welcoming Adobe's Flash Packager and the developers who loved it back into the fold. With this being the case, it should come as a surprise to no one that Adobe plans to include support for the iPad development in the next iteration of the software.
It’s certainly not time just yet for Apple to start waving the white flag, but Google’s Android is definitely starting to chip away at Cupertino’s dominance in the tablet market, with the iPad slipping to 77 percent, while Android is up to 22 percent.
You’ve got to hand it to Google -- they may not be quick on the draw with features coming to iOS, but eventually they do get around to bringing their desktop-based browser features to Mobile Safari. The latest appears to be the “Instant Previews” feature.
Guessing at what Apple will feature in the next iPad is keeping analysts busy as usual this time of year, with the leading speculation mostly being the same as before -- with the addition of an estimated five million units sold in the first quarter alone.
Like the week of the Verizon iPhone, there was one story that was the dominator of the news here, and that story was Macworld Expo 2011. We've got videos, we've got galleries, we've got stories, we've got interviews. We've got it all. And here it all is, just in case...yeah, yeah, you know, just In Case You Missed It.
Sometimes, you might need to forward an email or phone number along. To do so, launch the Contacts app, tap Share Contact, and then tap Email. A blank email will pop up and the contact will be incorporated into the message as an attachment. Add a message if you need it.
One of our favorite iOS options is the option to group email messages that are part of a discussion (like a collection of replies to one specific email) into threads. It reduces the clutter in your inbox and we highly recommend it. You turn it on or off by launching the Settings app, tapping Mail, Contacts, Calendars and then toggling the Organize by Thread switch on or off.
