June has finally arrived, and with it comes a tidal wave of tech news for what’s generally a pretty lazy last day of the work week. We can’t report on everything, but we’ve managed to distill the day down to the five coolest stories you won’t want to miss -- so adjust your seats into a launch position and let’s dive right into this freaky Friday, June 1, 2012.
Steve Jobs once said “You can’t ask customers what they want to buy and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.” We’ve got to wonder what Jobs would have thought about Kickstarter.
Of course there's iPad 3 rumors, of course there are. You'd be a fool not to expect them. Our only surprise is that they haven't reached such feverish blistered fingers hot levels yet. Maybe it's because Tim Cook's iPhone 4S was such a lukewarm affair compared to the Steve mojo. At any rate, we've got that and a few other spicy bits for you to chew on in this week's muy caliente roundup.
We loved the Olloclip. It's one of the few iPhone lenses out there that doesn't require a case to use and gives iOS photographers three different perspectives to choose from, including wide angle, macro, and fish eye. It's truly a versatile product, so we asked one of the founders why they decided to put three lenses into one.
This is a nice little find from the folks over at 9to5Mac: The creators of a new Kickstarter project called iEmu are working on a desktop emulator that lets you run iOS apps on your Mac or Windows machine, and your Android device. Hey, remember playing old school console games on your Mac? Now you'll be able to do so with all the new iOS games.
Steve Uy established himself well in the comic book industry over the last decade, illustrating covers for Marvel's Uncanny X-Men and Iceman, along with DC's JSA Classified and other books, as well as providing full artwork for several issues of Marvel's Avengers: The Initiative. He also put out two of his own self-created mini-series: Feather, released in 2003 by Image Comics, and Jova's Harvest, which followed in 2005 from Arcana Studios.
