After being widely reported in recent weeks that Apple has been pushing television networks for 99 cent TV shows, one of the “big four” networks appears ready to reduce prices -- at least for some shows.
Rumors have persisted for three years that Apple would be adding a front-facing camera to the iPhone similar to high-end devices from Nokia and others -- and a new patent revealed this week shows that the day may finally be near.
As much progress as Apple has made with the iPhone OS in just three short years, there’s one enormous elephant in the room that gets a lot of press but which the company stubbornly seems to ignore: Multitasking.
Seemingly contradicting recent reports that iBookstore pricing on the iPad will fall between $12.99 and $14.99 for new releases, The New York Times has a new report which indicates the $9.99 price point may not be dead after all.
It’s no surprise to find that iPhone and iPod touch developers have been busily reworking their apps since the iPad was unveiled at a media event last month. One developer is bursting with so much excitement that they’ve given a preview of what’s to come on their company blog.
Prior to the announcement that yes, Virginia, there really is an iPad, everyone was clamoring to be on a device that existed only in our minds. Now that the device has been unveiled, the reality is beginning to sink in as Apple tries to negotiate content deals with leading newspapers and magazines.
It used to be that you’d have to wait for a product to actually be available before someone could break it down and estimate what it cost to build. One such company looks into its crystal ball to get some cost estimates for the iPad.
One of the biggest disappointments following the iPad’s introduction on January 27th was the absence of some kind of camera, preferably a front-facing one which would have enabled video conferencing capabilities to the device. But if a recent Apple job posting is any indication, Cupertino may still have something on the boards for a future model.
