Samsung has released another video tease on YouTube for its upcoming Unpacked 2012 event in London in May where it’s expected to pull the wraps off the latest in its line of its Galaxy smartphones, the S III.
Time it right. Want a TV? Look just before the Super Bowl. In the market for a digital camera? New models are out early in the year. Notebook computers are often discounted in late summer for back-to-school shoppers.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak spoke to students at the University of Southern California about the company he started with Steve Jobs in the 1970s. At the presentation on 19 April, Wozniak revealed that he was designing circuits and learning about electrons at a young age, after he discovered a journal “in a closet”.
iOS (Jailbroken): Unlocking your iPhone and taking it over to another carrier has been a relatively painless process in the past, but it wasn’t always foolproof and didn’t work on some modern devices. Different basebands on different phones meant it only worked some of the time. However, a new jailbreak tool called SAM makes unlocking easy to do on any iPhone model capable of running iOS 5 regardless of the baseband.
Traditionally, BlackBerry has dominated the enterprise smartphone market, pushing its devices as being ideal for people who intend to use their phones to stay connected with their jobs. But Apple would like to change that perception.
On Friday, Apple launched a new section on the iPhone landing page on apple.com, according to a story from Apple Insider. On it, the company details the many ways that iPhones can be useful to business professionals.
Your iPhone’s camera can do more than just take photos. It can also help you record measurements for do-it-yourself projects. I recently tested two apps-one that lets you record measurements on the photos you snap and another that also taps into your iPhone’s accelerometer to do the measuring for you. Here’s my look at how both these apps measure up.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is coming out of Steve Jobs’ admittedly long shadow. The former Jobs subordinate and COO was named his boss’ successor last August after the legendary Apple co-founder retired just prior to his passing.
Two interesting little rumours about the next generation of Apple‘s iPhone, what we assume will be called the iPhone 5. The first is that it will be made, at least in part, of metallic glass. The second is that it will arrive in October.
If your iPhone suddenly stops taking a charge, but everything else keeps working, there may be a fix. I know someone with firsthand experience of just such an issue, and can offer advice that may solve your iPhone’s charging problem.
Apple is famously strict with the apps it approves for use on the iDevices, but it has just approved one uncharacteristically useful utility called Bluetooth OnOff. This app adds a simple Bluetooth toggle to the home screen of an iOS device, thus saving numerous taps to get at the settings.
Sometimes, two dimensional photos, even those taken by a 41-megapixel sensor, simply aren’t enough to accurately depict a three dimensional object. Enter Arqball Spin, a free app that lets anyone with an iOS device create high-quality 3D models of whatever they like.
Insiders call it the Mothership. It’s Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, and to Apple fans, it’s a place thought of with romance and wonder. Only the privileged elect have ever been deep within its most secretive recesses, but after an extensive search, I turned up more than 30 inside pictures that Apple probably doesn’t want you to see.
With the skyrocketing popularity and billion-dollar sale of Instagram, there’s an ongoing race to apply Instagram’s wildly successful photo sharing model to mobile video. There are a number of startups vying to claim the “Instagram for Video” title, with Socialcam, Viddy, Klip, Mobli, and even the infamous Color all in the running.
The Chinese environmental group that will be auditing Apple’s Chinese factories has praised Apple for arranging the audit. The group had previously criticised Apple for not co-operating on efforts to rein in pollution at its suppliers. The Institute of Public & Environmental Affairs and other Chinese environmental groups had also criticised Apple for allegedly failing to stop the environmental damage caused by its suppliers in China. Now the group has praised Apple for becoming “more transparent”.
Facebook is buying Instagram — and some Instagram users aren’t happy about it. They’re tweeting that they’ll delete their Instagram accounts because of the acquisition. The fear is that in addition to the company, Facebook has acquired all of that location-tagged photo data from Instagram’s users and may use it to target ads at them.
It’s not quite as earth-shattering as Zuck’s deal to snap up Instagram, but one of the pioneers of photography is making waves any way it can. Kodak Gallery has been available on the App Store since November of last year, but starting this week, users will be able to order photos right on their iPhone for pickup at participating Target and CVS locations in America.
Looks like Apple might be loosening its grip even more on voice recognition apps? Or, it simply just feels that the competition is not as good as its own native Siri. We’ve just gotten word from Netherlands-based developer Sparkling Apps that its voice-response app, Voice Answer — rejected by Apple for the nearly three months — has been approved by Apple and is now live in the App Store, and usable on any iPhone, iPod or iPad running iOS 4.2 or later.
