When people think of Apple, they tend to think of Steve Jobs. So linked are the man and the company, that when his health takes a dip, so too do the fiscal fortunes of all that he's built. Confident, polished and well spoken, Jobs rarely flounders in the public eye. If you set your Wayback Machine for a trip to the late 1970s, however, you'll find evidence to support the theory that true greatness is not born but honed over time. Ladies and Gentlemen: for your viewing pleasure, we present to you Awkward Steve Jobs!
The Verizon iPhone 4 isn’t the only thing that Apple is touting in its recent commercials -- the company has just unveiled their latest showcasing the iPad, which Cupertino reminds us is an “iconic” device.
The spotlight is back on the iPhone 4, with the first Verizon commercial hitting YouTube and new, slightly modified bumper cases that work with both carrier’s models making their way to an Apple Store near you.
There’s little doubt that an iPhone 5 will be unveiled this year, and a Verizon-specific model of the current iPhone 4 could arrive even sooner. A newly leaked video of some altered iPhone components seem to indicate one or both are already being manufactured.
The ability to stream online videos is one of the hallmarks of today's web. Videos on any topic you can imagine are just a click (or tap) away, provided you have an internet connection. But what if you're on your way to an internet-less destination? How will you watch your daily workout video (or favorite cat video) once you get there? The solution is simpler than you might think. With Apple's Safari web browser, a few additional clicks will have your video off of the web and onto your hard drive.
It’s nice to sometimes take a break from reporting about mythical products such as the Verizon iPhone or the Facebook Phone and just kick back for 35 seconds and watch video of an iPod nano walking. Wait, what…?
You've watched countless videos of adorable puppies, cute kitties, and all other things that make you go "Awwww…" Or perhaps video bloopers of people enduring things gone wrong that make you realize perhaps you didn't have such a bad day after all. Now YouTube is venturing further into a new avenue…a live streaming platform.
With Netflix raking in the dough, and fan favorites Apple and Hulu both pondering pay-per-use models for streaming video content, it comes as no surprise that Google also wants a slice of that sweet, sweet pay-per-view video cake. If the folks at Fast Times have it right, the company is considering how they could implement pay-per-use services on YouTube.
Remember Paul Allen? Well, he's about to try and make sure Apple amongst a whole slew of other tech heavy hitters don't soon forget him. On Friday, he sued Apple, Google and nine other companies claiming that they're making use of technology that came about ten years ago at his now-kaput Silicon Valley lab.
Wouldn’t it be nice to download your favorite YouTube videos, right from your iOS device? Sure it would, which is why a popular jailbreak app called MiTube exists to do that very thing. After making the leap to the official App Store this week, the free app was subsequently shown the door.
