If cost of entry has been a barrier to keep you from jumping on board the iPhone bandwagon, AT&T may have just removed that from the equation -- effective Friday, the previous-generation iPhone 3GS will now be only $49 with a two-year agreement.
There’s little doubt that an iPhone 5 will be unveiled this year, and a Verizon-specific model of the current iPhone 4 could arrive even sooner. A newly leaked video of some altered iPhone components seem to indicate one or both are already being manufactured.
You may recall that last year, Apple obtained the exclusive rights to a unique metal alloy called Liquidmetal. At the time they procured it, the rumor mill was busy churning out speculation over how the new technology might be employed by Cupertino. Some said it would be implemented in antenna design. Others suggested it could be used to build lighter, stronger cases for mobile devices. Man, were they ever off the mark. If a recent patent awarded to Apple is any indicator, Apple has something planned that'll blow their competition right out of the water. Again.
AT&T is firing on all cylinders at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, and most of their news is related to the company’s forthcoming 4G LTE plans. Among the companies listed as launching LTE devices in 2012 is Apple -- does that mean what we think it does?
Does anyone see the irony of releasing an iPhone-connected blood pressure monitor at an event like the Consumer Electronics Show? Apparently Withings doesn’t, and they’re rolling out the device this week for a cool $129.
Everyone knows about what a great place the Macworld Expo is for discovering great new Apple-centric products. Those who have attended the Expo can also attest to how much cash you can spend over the course of a visit to the Expo's many vendors and companies. If you're not careful, you could go in a rich man, and by the end of the day end up a gadget-laden pauper. Fortunately, starting year, visitors to the event will also be able by trading in their old iPhones to e-Cycle in exchange for some brand new greenbacks, making the purchase of new toys a little less painful.
Canabalt has been an addicting Flash browser-based game for some time, but the iPhone and iPad version of the game changed where we could play this game. Now, thanks to the Indie iPhone Holiday Sale, the developers have been able to give 1/3 of the profits from the game to charity this holiday season.
Remember Garmin’s attempt to enter the smartphone race with the Nuviphone? Apparently, neither does Garmin -- the company has (for now) thrown in the towel on that approach and released their new StreetPilot app for the iPhone instead.
The thing we've long-loved about Skype is the ability to conduct a video chat with relative ease, but it wasn't until just last week that you could video chat right from your iOS devices. That's why we wanted to take a minute to show you how to utilize Skype's new video calling features.
