After Apple announced that 14.1 million more iPhones entered the world in their last fiscal quarter of 2010, it’s only natural for the speculation to turn back to the mythical Verizon iPhone -- which may actually exist and getting put through field tests right now.
The iPod touch and iPhone both work beautifully as handheld gaming devices…until you get so into Need for Speed that you fumble the svelte iPod touch and drop it on the ground. Even if it doesn’t break, you just lost your game.
All Hail the iPad! And why not? After all, Cupertino's slick little device has been an unparalleled hit, and not just for Apple. Remember DVD players and how quickly those ended up in every home? Yeah, well the iPad is crushing the DVD player in adoption rates. Yeah, you read that right, and you're gonna keep on reading, because this is In Case You Missed It, kids, and we mean business.
The internet is abound with wonderful things, like ridiculous pictures of galaxy cats, search engines that find super secret mixes and b-sides from your favorite music artists, social networking sites that violate all the principles of privacy and websites filled with free software. Yes, that's right, free software, and especially open source software. Open source is wonderful because it gives developers a hobby, and the users some hope that their favorite free software will only get better with age--sort of like a fine wine.
This week, we're covering open source software like WordPress, Miro and WikiHow.
In this episode of the Man vs. iPhone, we go deep into the jungles of Cupertino where the mysterious white iPhone 4 has been spotted in it's natural habitat. According the folks at Pocket-lint, at a press event in New York City a man was spotted carrying around a white iPhone 4, and while the man didn't want to reveal any personal details, he did share some potentially valuable information about the white iPhone 4 shortage of 2010.
There’s been a flurry of activity on the iOS jailbreak scene over the last week, but we Mac users have had to sit on the sidelines for most of it, since both the Limera1n and GreenPois0n tools were Windows-only -- but that’s changing.
Apple has officially unveiled the new MobileMe Calendar that has been in beta since July. The newly revamped calendar features a new user interface similar to the calendar that appears on the iPad, and some new features that users of the MobileMe web interface will no doubt love.
When Steve Jobs talked up iBooks earlier this year, it sounded like it had the potential to put reigning e-book champions such as Barnes & Noble and Amazon on the ropes.
However, after six months of offering up downloadable text content to capable iOS devices, it appears that the once seemingly mighty contender hasn't been able to do much more than land a few rabbit punches. Despite the iPad's rabid popularity, neither major publishers, nor the book buying public have embraced iBooks.
After more than half a year online, Apple's iBook Store is still only offering up approximately 60,000 titles. When held up against the 700,000 titles offered by Amazon for their Kindle reader software and hardware solutions, Cupertino's library looks pretty weak. Did we mention that about half of the titles available as iBooks are also available from Project Gutenberg? C'mon Steve, this is embarrassing.
In a world where child soldiers are forced to fight for fear of their family's safety, women are refused the same education as their male counterparts, and disease runs rampant around the globe for a lack of funding to provide the most basis of vaccinations, it is a great comfort to know that an elite few are able to look past the all the chaos and keep it real real for the rest of us.
