We’ll be starting a weekly tip feature on Mac|Life beginning today and every Thursday after today. Each week I will offer four tips that will cover the iPhone or iPad or a combination of the two.These tips will definitely supercharge your knowledge of these popular mobile devices and give you something to show off to your friends, parents, or significant other.You might even out genius the Geniuses at the Apple store!
Sure, we all know a new iPhone is coming, and based on recent leaks it seems fairly certain that some kind of video chat will be included. But a television commercial for the unannounced device, directed by Sam Mendes? That’s new.
It was a slow week in big Mac news. The lull before the storm that is WWDC, no doubt. Google made a few waves, it's true, but they weren't very big ones. Facebook was Facebook, Twitter for iPhone finally came out...and, yeah. Like we said, nothing really earth shattering.
Still, the week was not without its points of interest, small though they may be. For real. So let's take a peek under the covers and see what did and didn't change the world, at least according to Mac|Life.
Back in the early days of gaming consoles, there was quite a bit of jockeying between Nintendo and Sega. While the latter eventually won the hardware war, Sega has shifted into creating software for other consoles and platforms. And the platform we, of course, are most excited about them bestowing their attentions on is the iPhone OS.
What, you may ask, has us so singing the praises of Sega gaming? Oh, just a little game they're tweaking and prepping called Sonic 4. At least according to the Sega blog -- and they seem in a position to know.
While both Google and Apple might play down the obvious tensions between them, that didn’t stop the search giant’s vice-president of engineering from reading Apple the riot act during his Google I/O keynote on Thursday.
