Monday has been good to iPad users who create their own content -- first Adobe releases Photoshop Touch for still images, and now Vimeo’s app hits version 2.0 with a universal build for native iPad support for watching, managing, downloading and sharing your videos with others.
Judging from the company’s recent moves, Apple’s cloud plans may be even bigger than originally thought. What’s better than one new data center in North Carolina? How about a second one in Prineville, Oregon, just a stone’s throw from a similar Facebook facility?
Path launched in 2010 as a single-app combo of Foursquare, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, with a focus on exclusivity. It limited you to 50 friends, the thought being that Path would prioritize the relationships that actually matter, and not just spotlight every kid you ever sat at a lunch table with in elementary school. Recently, Path increased that maximum to 150 friends along with a bevy of improvements, but even that still-limited tally doesn't explain why my Path friends list is so slim. The problem with Path is hardly anybody is using it.
It was a week for updates, that's for sure. (Even the product above got updated, though this happened years ago over several iterations. Ahem.) This week saw people pushing out new versions of software everywhere we turned. We don't know what's in the pipelines, but we like it when our apps get great new tools and slick new features. It's pretty hot stuff, we don't mind telling you. And here's some of the other hot magic happening this week.
Facebook Timeline is the social network's latest method of adding more trinkets to your profile page. It's a virtual scrapbook of your whole Facebook history that fits in with the site's new timeline format. You can get the most out of the new format by displaying not just your Facebook activities, but by using apps to show what else you're doing around the web. Facebook touts it as a way to bring your timeline to life and express who you are, and we'd say that's pretty accurate. Timeline apps are a great way to integrate your various hobbies into your Facebook profile.
If you haven't started using apps with your Timeline profile, here are 10 of our favorite to get you started. Be warned though--if you aren't one to share, you might want to skip this feature. These apps send all of your various activities straight to your Facebook profile!
That surge of Twitter activity this evening was the internet going ape for Facebook’s new IPO filing today in an effort to raise $5 billion. Hey, good luck with that, guys… we’re just hoping all that cash will bring some much-needed fixes to the website, but Zuck probably has some other cool stuff in mind. Oh, and don’t forget to download Mac OS X 10.7.3 which finally hit Software Update today -- and while you’re downloading, maybe catch up on the rest of the news for Wednesday, February 1, 2012.
The dust has settled, everyone has cleared out of the Guggenheim in New York City, and we all know Apple’s education plans, which include an update to iBooks and new iBooks Author and iTunes U apps. Before we switch back to gossip about the next iPad or even the iPhone 5, let’s address the rest of today’s news, which includes the unfortunate (and unsurprising) bankruptcy of photo legend Kodak. Here’s the rest of the news for this Thursday, January 19, 2012.
These days, it seems that we spend more time uploading and sharing photos to multiple websites than actually interacting with the people we're sharing with. That is, unless you get on board with an online service called Pixelpipe, which enables you to share content with multiple services.
The war of words between iOS and Android goes on, with Google’s mobile boss now claiming the lion’s share of new device activations over the Christmas holiday. How Apple will respond is anyone’s guess, but with the close of another calendar quarter just days away, we’d expect some serious revenue boasting next month when Cupertino reports revenue from their holiday quarter. In the meantime, there’s plenty of other tech items making news for this Wednesday, December 28, 2011.
It’s been one of those busy days for tech enthusiasts: Rather than dreaming about the weekend ahead, we’ve had product launches all over the place in the mad pre-Christmas holiday rush before things start to shut down next week. If you’ve already played around with your Facebook Timeline update or nabbed that sweet new Roku iOS app and are waiting for your Apple TV to update, take a breather and see what’s new for this Thursday, December 15, 2011.
