I went on vacation and took a whole bunch of videos with my digital camera. They show up in iPhoto and I can publish them to Facebook and MobileMe, but I can’t get these videos to transfer onto my iPhone or iPad.
One of the most exciting games of 2011 has just become available on the App Store today. The latest game in the long-running Rainbox Six tactical shooter series has had a lengthy hype campaign ramping up over the last few months, and now we've got the chance to try it out for ourselves. Shadow Vanguard was developed by Gameloft which has essentially dominated the iOS shooter genre with games like N.O.V.A. 2 and Modern Combat 2. We're looking forward to seeing what they're able to do with the Rainbow Six series.
While it may just be a gimmick to draw attention to the effort, you have to admit it’s impressive that the iPad 2 has been in stores less than a week and already the tablet has been used to shoot a music video.
Apple is continuing to pimp the iPhone 4, even in the wake of last Friday’s wildly successful iPad 2 launch, with three new television commercials that just hit YouTube. The theme of the new spots? “If you don’t have an iPhone… well, you don’t have an iPhone.”
Following a report earlier this week that Japanese Apple Store locations had served as a means of communication for many in the beleaguered country after last week’s earthquake and tsunami comes word that Apple CEO Steve Jobs has pledged his company’s assistance with employees there.
Google astonished everyone by launching Gmail back in 2004 with a then-generous 1GB of storage; today, that’s climbed to 7.3GB. Thanks to all that space—along with threaded conversations, a powerful spam filter, conversation labels, and more—Gmail remains a standout amid other free webmail products that have been around much longer. Here’s how to tap all that power under its hood.
A deceleration in the manufacturing output at Foxconn, the factory that produces the lion's share of iPhone and iOS devices for Apple, has spurred concern for reduced quantities of Apple products on store shelves. In response to Foxconn changing from "Market Outperform" to "Market Perform" prompted JMP securities to downgrade its outlook on Apple stock. As a result, earnings expectations for the quarter has been reduced from $23 billion to $22 billion.
We’ve all made plans for what we’d do if we were dropped on a postapocalyptic desert world with nothing but our keen wits and a vast arsenal to survive. Or you’ve made these plans if you’ve watched The Road Warrior more than once recently…
Most people who've tried Google Docs loves the free online document editing service, and with good reason: it's easy to use, powerful, and free, and Google continually iterates and improves the service. Case in point: today they've announced the addition of a robust discussions system, available for all newly created documents.
If there was a way to subscribe to developers games on iTunes, I would subscribe to these developers without batting my pretty eyelashes. These teams really innovate and entertain on a consistent basis.
Steve Jobs is a very powerful man. With a single word, he has been known to lay waste to inferior products and technologies.
Okay, maybe that's not true. Look at Windows, it's been around for ages and Steve hasn't exactly been quiet about how much better the Mac OS is to Windows. Still, that hasn't stopped people from blaming Jobs for the demise of, well, just about anything.
Just like you'd do everything to prepare for a new member of the family, you should do the same for your precious new tablet, too. While the Smart Cover is definitely new and innovative, it's not enough to keep the entire chassis of the iPad 2 covered -- that's why you need a case. While there aren't a ton available just yet -- the iPad's only been available for less than a week -- companies like Xtreme Mac, BodyGuardz and Scosche already have cases ready for your new toy, and we've already reviewed 'em. Click through for a quick overview of some of the new cases, though keep in mind that they may not all be available yet.
The iPad 2 is here, and developers are already starting to make the most of the refreshed tablet’s dual-core A5 processor, twin cameras and superior graphics processing. But are apps optimized for the iPad 2 really so different than the same ones on the iPad?
The advent of last year's iPhone 4 caused quite a stir with its high resolution Retina Display. So, when the iPad 2 was announced, we were expecting to see that Apple's next-generation tablet would follow suit with a Retina Display of its own. It didn't, but that doesn't mean that it falls short when compared to its smaller iOS brother. Whether we're watching a movie, playing a game or browsing the web, the iPad 2's display really does impress, and as Dr. Raymond Soneira, President of DisplayMate Technologies points out in his recent iPad and iPhone display shoot out, the two iOS devices are like two peas in a pod -- or, as he puts it, Arnold Schwarzneggar and Danny DeVito's characters in Twins.
There's a reason Google made a multibillion dollar pitch for Groupon. There's gold in them thar deals, and ever hungry for another advertising/data collating moneymaker, the gang out at Mountain View saw the dollar signs and the projected growth. They made their pitch -- tons of smaller companies dream of being bought up by one of the big boys -- and Groupon batted it away. Wise or no?
Yeah, yeah, that's all fine and good, but what you wanted was half off a footlong with everything, not a lecture on Google economics. Well, okay, then: two social couponing sites walk into the ring and only one can walk out.
