Apple just pushed out iBooks 1.2, a modest update to their universal e-reader app for iOS which lets you organize your e-books into Collections, print PDF documents and notes directly from the app via AirPrint and more. Here’s a look at what’s new!
Everything's gone digital. Long-playing records are now mp3 files, movies are downloadable, books can be read in electronic format, and farms and their crops are merely pixelized renditions of themselves. But they are so very fun to farm. The question you have to ask yourself then, is this: am I a Farmviller or something a lot Smurfier than that?
Rumors broke out on Monday that Apple would be partnering with Toshiba to work on new display technology for mobile devices, including Cupertino adopting AMOLED screen technology. Now, Toshiba has come forward to debunk those rumors.
The AirPlay technology that Apple rolled out with iOS 4.2 is definitely the future, even though it’s quite lacking in its current incarnation. Thanks to an enterprising developer, you can now add iOS to Mac streaming capabilities, without ever having to hack your device.
The age of wonder is just beginning. Each morning, we shove devices into our pockets that, as kids, we could only goggle at on Star Trek. Now we can Google on them, and that’s not even vaguely impressive. We live in an era when every day sees past science fiction become contemporary mundane reality, and like you, that only whets our thirst for more.
With Apple’s talent for staggering us with innovative design, Cupertino will likely be at the forefront of our culture’s next big holy-crap gadget. Just as surely, Jobs & Co. will keep it nailed down under bulletproof wraps right up until they’re good and ready to tell the world about it.
The world has caught 3D fever. It’s in our TVs, game consoles, Blu-ray players, and movie theaters. In due time, 3D features will probably even appear in our shampoo and breakfast cereal (”No, Mommy--I want Cap’n Crunch 3D!”). Yet Apple seems conspicuously ambivalent about all the 3D hype. Are Steve’s engineers really treating 3D as a passing fad? Of course not. They’re just going to wait until 2013 in order to do it right.
There are already plenty of capable VNC apps for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, but there’s a new kid in town called Screens, and it’s making friends quickly thanks to a superior touchscreen experience like never before.
When it comes to smartphones and tablets, you’ve gotta feel for Microsoft -- they’re underdogs these days when it comes to such markets, while companies like Apple and Google continue to grow with no end in sight. But one thing you can say for Microsoft, they’re persistent.
The Verizon iPhone may still be a shot in the dark, but according to a new job posting on the Apple website, the company may be looking to put the iPad on the Verizon network. This position will be a full-time job, with a location in Cupertino.
