So you thought the iCade Arcade Cabinet for iPad was a neat iOS accessory? Well, you're going to need someone to pick you up off the floor after you see the iPhone Pinball Magic accessory. The pinball table features flipper buttons, a ball-launching plunger, a credit / select button, an animated LED back panel display, and foldaway legs.
Welcome to yet another Game Time. This week we take on a few games that differentiate themselves from other titles in the App Store with elements like subtle gameplay mechanics and unique visual styles. Not all of the games featured scored a grand slam on their first try, but all are worth checking out.
Many corporations that banned the iPhone from employees are now replacing notebooks with iPads for increased productivity and ease of transportation. According to a new Wall Street Journal article, there are more than 500 applications specifically built for iPad-toting business people, and a few big companies are taking advantage of them.
According to a statement by Apple Chief Operating Officer (COO) Tim Cook, nearly half of the Fortune 100 companies are either in a process of testing or deploying iPads for internal use.
With every new iPhone, a chorus of familiar questions arises: “How do I get more ringtones? How much do they cost?” Put your wallet away. We know not one, not two, but nine great ways to make ringtones on the cheap. Most are free or use software you already own. When finished, just drag the file to iTunes to prepare it for sync.
We may very well remember the warm months of 2010 as The Summer of Scandal. In recent days, we've seen folks dinged for taking kickbacks, iTunes Store shoppers' pockets emptied by hackers, Antennagate and now this: 12 people from a number of international locales have been arrested by the FBI for laundering funds through Amazon.com and iTunes.
We're anticipating that this puzzler game is going to be as awesome as it's predecessor. And if these teaser images from Gamescom are any indication, we're confident that we won't be let down. All of the photos are from the single player version of Portal 2 and detail the game's beautiful graphics, as well as give a bit of insight into the game's rendering effects. Click the cut to take a look at the photos, and watch footage of Stephen Merchant as Wheatley and Portal 2's rendering effects in motion.
Portal 2 is slated for release February 9th, 2011 for the Mac, PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
Remember Paul Shin Devine, the mid-level Apple global supply chain manager accused of accepting $1 million in kickbacks? Yeah, there's a new twist to his increasingly ugly tale.
The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that Devine, who snagged the high-priced payola after awarding a number of iPhone and iPod accessory contracts to his favored (see also: those willing to pay for the privilege) vendors, has turned out to have multiple bank accounts in a number of foriegn countries registered under his and his wife's names.
Here's a piece of silliness that should definitely put a smile on your face, though we warn you that there are spoilers ahead.
If you've seen Inception, you know the ridiculousness that is idea of a meta dream world. But if you can't seem to wrap that concept around your head, then perhaps this explanation will lay it out for you in laymen's terms. Jonah Ray, host of the Web Soup, posted a nifty graphic in his Tumblr explaining the many levels of Inception's dream hierarchy using Mac OS X folders. It's a pretty clever way to unravel the mystery behind the movie. Check it out for yourself after the cut.
If you've got fingers the size of Snickers bars and find the iPad's on screen keyboard on the difficult side of sanity to use for typing anything more robust than a quick email, you'll want to pay attention to the BL-BKB76 case made by the Shenzhen Paoluy Silicone Technology Company, and recently registered with the FCC.
It's been big news lately that iTunes was reportedly hacked and users' confidential data, credit card numbers and the like, have been stolen. Fraudsters ran up huge charges, drained PayPal accounts, and generally ran amuk. The $50,000 question though is this: was the security breach on Apple's side or the users?
The Parrot AR Drone made it's model debut for the next issue of Mac|Life magazine, and we took some behind the scenes teaser footage of the fun-filled photoshoot. Watch Associate Editor, Nic Vargus, get chased by the quadricopter as it's controlled by Online Editor, Robbie Baldwin. And stay tuned to the November issue of the magazine to see the final result of this photoshoot.
Taking Apple’s lead, Chinese carrier China Unicom will head off iPhone 4 trouble at the pass by giving every customer a free case with their purchase in an effort to prevent the controversy that sprung up here in the United States over the handset’s antenna design.
If you’re one of the many who have downloaded iTunes U content over the past three years, Apple says you’re not alone -- the popular online educational catalog has just topped 300 million downloads and counting.
We know we've certainly had a toasty summer here in the States. We also know that our cellular devices can have a hard time keeping cool, especially the iPhone at times. Apparently in Asia, iPhone users are also beginning to discover that the device also doesn't really take well to 95 percent humidity either.
