It was a rare moment on Monday, as technology failed Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his WWDC 2010 keynote. While trying to show a demo of The New York Times website on both an iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 to demonstrate the company’s new Retina Display, the Wi-Fi choked and forced Jobs to move onto the next thing on his list. But could it have been the fault of the iPhone 4’s own drivers?
This week's tips include a way to manage screen orientation on your iPad, another way to check your iPhone data usage, a tip on managing misbehaving apps, and moving quickly through the pages of apps displayed on your iPhone desktop.
By the time Steve Jobs took the stage for his keynote address at WWDC 2010, the tech world had already seen dozens of leaked photos of iPhone 4 prototypes, and might be forgiven for dismissing the announcement as old news. Of course Apple still had plenty of surprises in store: more details about the iPhone 4's unique design and hardware, its dual-camera system, and the flash FaceTime feature and iMovie app. Apple hadn't started taking preorders as we went to press, but we were lucky enough to get hands-on time with iPhone 4 immediately after the keynote--and walked out with our credit cards burning rectangular-shaped holes in our wallets.
We recap yesterday's WWDC keynote announcements. Susie and Robbie talk about the pretty Retina Display screen and FaceTime. We even discuss the many face-related names they mistakenly referred to the feature as.
We get excited about the rebranding of the iPhone OS to iOS. Finally we'll be able to talk about the iPod touch without name dropping the iPhone every five seconds.
