West Bromwich, England – When Ajay Cohan’s iPhone went missing, right away he knew who to blame. He claims that the ghost of the pub’s deceased landlord did it, and he has blurry, inconclusive CCTV footage to “prove” it.
A gang of thieves has stolen so many iPhones in Stamford, Connecticut that the local police are calling them the “Apple Pickers,” reports CBS New York (video below). After 40 attacks, police have noticed a similar pattern. The victim is usually a female who is alone with their phone in broad daylight.
Apple has launched two new ads for the iPhone 5, showcasing two important new features — the device’s noise cancelling microphone and photo stream sharing. In the first ad, we see how easy it is to share your Thanksgiving photos with your friends and family. Turkeys and pies abound, of course.
Apple devices are used to being at the center of out-of-this-world product launches, but at least one iPhone 4S has literally been at the center of a rocket launch. Yours could be, too, if you’re up to following the instructions provided by amateur rocketeer Mike Westerfield.
After many years of wrangling and in-fighting in the mobile industry the UK’s first 4G network goes live on Tuesday, as EE switches the service on in several cities across the country including London.
V3 was given the chance to try out the new network in one of the firm’s stores in London a day before the launch. We put the service through its paces, testing it out by running videos, opening web pages and downloading apps.
It’s a given that Apple’s new iPhone 5 stands on the shoulders of the five previous generations that came before it, but Everything Apple Pro has put that to the test with an informal comparison between all six models.
With so much speculation surrounding the next-generation iPhone event, a stunning new concept video has hit the web, touting features such as fingerprint scanning for enhanced security and rubberband electronics, which enables the device to stretch like a scrunchie.
With the last post suggesting iPhone 5 to feature a 3D camera and a detachable DSLR lens, we think it’s quite timely to share the new concept brought to you by LA-based 3D artist Mike Ko!
However, try to stay relevant after watching it and remember that this is just a concept, having nothing in common with Apple plans. Although this masterpiece is at least years away from being implemented, let’s imagine how wonderful the movies and videos would be if our iPhones supported 3D….
A young Steve Jobs and other early Apple executives appear in a previously unreleased internal sales video for the Macintosh, circa 1984. A rare, internal video that Apple originally aired during its 1984 international sales conference has been put online.
Man’s best friend? There’s an app for that. Robotic dogs are nothing new; Wikipedia, God bless it, even has a list of them. The AIBO may be the most iconic (at least, it’s the only one I personally encountered), even though it was discontinued in 2006.
An entertainment software startup founded by two creative-industry professionals has launched the “Human in a Box” iPhone app—its first product on Apple’s iTunes App Store.
Human in a Box is one of the only interactive applications based on a live-action human avatar available in the App Store. The main character, Jerry Jenkins, is played by Miami-based actor Brent Battles. The app features a proprietary system in which the character’s reactions to the user evolve based on how he is treated.
Just when it seemed Siri’s gentle, informative voice had been twisted every which way in one YouTube video or another, along comes “Psycho Siri” to totally freak us out all over again about talking so intimately with our devices.
Filmmaker Andrew McMurry directed and acted in the clip, which stars his brother Nathan McMurry as a guy who finds an iPhone.
glowing iphone Make your iPhone Apple logo glow with this case hackI’m not one for hardware hacking. The last time I opened up a piece of electronics was to install a mod-chip in the original Sony Playstation. It was worth it for all of two months, then my Playstation went belly up. But, a nifty case tweak for the iPhone has me re-evaluating my stance on hardware hacking.
Last week, we looked at an iPhone ad from Amnesty International that turned the device’s “Slide to Unlock” feature into a symbolic act of political protest. Here’s another ad that toys around with that feature—this one a bit more playful. It’s from Audi and AlmapBBDO in Brazil, and it reimagines “Click to Unlock” as a winding racetrack.
The typical elementary school curriculum doesn’t include programming, so how can a kid interested in computers and technology learn how to build apps? Sixth grader Thomas Suarez taught himself using the iPhone software development kit and then launched an app club at his school to share what he learned with his peers.
