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.
There are social networks for everyone and everything. Whether you want to exploit colleagues for connections, take faux-retro pictures on your iPhone, or brag about how far you ran, there’s a network for that. In fact, social networks are so prevalent that the term has almost come to mean nothing at all. We decided it was time to take a look at some of the biggest contenders and see where they soar and where they sink.
Steve Jobs may be gone, but he lives on in the hearts and minds of Apple fans everywhere. Nowhere was that more obvious than at the Apple retail store in the co-founder’s hometown of Palo Alto, where thousands of sticky note tributes were posted by passers-by -- and now we can all own some of those memories in a new non-profit book called iiii n4S.
Well, it certainly took long enough. We've had the Facebook app on iPhone for ages, but Zuckerberg & Co. have had more than a year and a half to grace Apple's top-selling tablet with an app. So now that it's here: What did we get, and how is it better?
Hard to believe that our U.S. readers will be face down in a plate of turkey, stuffing and all the fixin’s only a week from now, but November is flying by like a freight truck out of control, so what can you do? Meanwhile, the technology world is keeping busy with new advances such as Facebook-to-Facebook calling via the Skype app for Mac, Google Music is official, DebtMinder goes supersized, Apple pulls its one and only iOS game and RIM looks to be ready to fire sale its BlackBerry PlayBook -- at least in Canada. Here’s all the news for Thursday, November 17, 2011.
Booga booga booga! It's the Halloween weekend and while sometimes app game prices are pretty scary, but not this week. No this week, in honor of the witching season game makers across the board are slashing prices, chopping the heads off their numbers, gutting their profits and otherwise making things very easy for you. So without any further ado, here's some prices that'll have you screaming.
Everyone rejoice! After months and months -- even years -- of waiting, Facebook is finally available for the iPad. While the app developers at Facebook could have easily just ported the iPhone app over to the iPad, they have done no such thing. Facebook for iPad provides users of the popular social networking site with a significant user interface update to the iPhone version. Here's a look at some of the most salient updates, from multi-tasking and multiple users to new and improved image galleries.
It was both a blessing and a curse to be an Apple fan last week, with the iPhone 4S announcement immediately overshadowed the death of co-founder Steve Jobs. But now, the second full week of October is in full swing, with more than a million preordered iPhone 4S units headed to customers this Friday. Here’s what else is making news for Monday, October 10, 2011.
Here we are, one week before Apple is set to wow us with whatever they've got behind the curtains, so if you thought the hot news stories this week weren't going to skew toward being about next Tuesday and what we might gain -- and what we might lose -- well, you're in the wrong place.
If you’ve been following the saga of Facebook’s native iPad app, you already know that yes, it does exist and according to reports circulating on Monday from a former developer, it’s been “feature complete” since May.
