Remember the last iPhone 6 event where Tim Cook spoke Chinese? Sort of, when the live event started I could only hear him talk dubbed in Chinese. Then the show stuttered and halted. I refreshed my browser but that made things worse, I guess halve the world was doing this too. Some Social Media Strategist at the company probably decided that Twitter integration in the event was a must to reach out to the younger generation, so they added some Java code for interactive tweet views. This apparently made the site un-cachable.
Their new Apple WATCH event will again be a live one and the landing page is already prepared: http://www.apple.com/live check it out yourself, you can add it to your calendar via here as well.
Snapchat is a fantastic medium because, why keep all the stupid and funny videos we make forever? It is a bit like real life, when is has happened it is history, and sometimes it better stays this way. Now for the new SnapChatters among us, do not really trust that your videos will be gone forever because there are many ways that the recipient can record what you just snapped.
Here we will go over the 7 simple steps to record SnapsChats for those people around who are fortunate Mac users.
In a few years this app will be totally useless if we may believe the latest BI stats on the growth of mobile payments towards 2019, we are making over 800 billion in value of transaction that year. But hey for now it can be an adventure to find a store which accepts the new smooth iPhone 6 (Plus) experience. Vince Davis had the idea to create a merchant finder for Apple Pay and just released it. It does much more then finding merchants for example it also lets you know when your bank is finally seeing the light and supports Apple Pay amongst other features.
This week we’re testing a new tool from Fireebok—iCloud Extractor—which you can use to look into your iCloud backups, something which isn’t possible with native OS X tools.
You can extract every item from these backups to your Mac or external HD—e.g. fotos & videos. This way you can free up iCloud storage space before having to buy new one. Not only that but it’s an easy way for adding these fotos to your iPhoto library for example.
Some weeks ago we reported about the first fake Apple WATCH caught out in the wild, the Chinese WWT clone. Now we have stumbled upon another clone called the Tonsee Smart Wrist Watch. The Tonsee is created to work with iOS and Android.
We are surprised to see that it is for sale on Amazon, I would expect that this US company would not sell clones but you can check it out here, they really do. It costs $40.99 plus $1.0 for shipping.
On the black Tonsee it looks like that the big dial knob is obliquely.
By the latest estimates there are over 1,200,000 apps available to download in App Store. While this means that iPhone users have an incredible range of choices when it comes to software, but it can be very difficult to sort the hidden gems from the dross. Here we take a look at some must have entertainment and productivity apps which earned rave reviews, but you might have missed.
Outlook has been Microsoft’s flagship email client for years - but a new iPhone version, freshly released for 2015, is drawing a lot of attention. Gmail users have long complained that there are no good email options for iPhone; ironically Microsoft may have the solution!
The Outlook app has a slick and visually appealing look, with a great amount of functionality. You can now swipe across messages to delete, archive or even schedule them to appear later, when you’re less busy. The app also has a “focused” feed which attempts to filter your most important emails for immediate attention, though this option can be easily turned off in settings.
The app also integrates a full screen calendar and file management; therex a toolbar you can use to search attachments and transfers to Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive are supported.
Symphonic Audio Solutions has developed a very interesting kind of iPhone case. The Amp is basically a speaker extention in the form of a case. Actually it’s even more than this. The Amp has also a battery life extention of 20 to 25 percent (depending on your iPhone model), in combination with an audio quality improvement unit (high quality 24-bit DAC).
More than a normal Amp.
Amp sports a Dynamic Noise reduction technology which is a valuable feature for headphones users. It also improves voice quality which is usefull for in car integration and meeting room situations.
I have to confess that I’m a longtime B&W fan. I’ve had several sets of their speakers for my HiFi and surround setup. My latest speakers are the vintage B&W DM2 MKII from the late 70-ties, early 80-ties. These’re three-driver loudspeaker systems of 47 litres capacity and weigth 60 Pounds (27 KG) each. The bass driver is housed in a critically vented enclosure and has a crossover point of 400 Hz where the vent tuning is so designed to extend the low frequency half point to 45Hz, and that sounds awesome. You can feel the instruments kicking in like the band is playing live in front of of you.
Sound quality like this you can put on your head nowadays with the all new Bowers & Wilkins P5 S2 headset series. Their drivers are engineered to work like those of my HiFi speakers with even better precise and controlled movement.
Homeautomation vendors had to wait 7 years to be part of the iOS ecosystem with Apple’s recent announce of HomeKit. Here’s how Apple describes it to its developers;
HomeKit is a framework in iOS 8 for communicating with and controlling connected accessories in a user’s home. You can enable users to discover HomeKit accessories in their home and configure them, or you can create actions to control those devices. Users can group actions together and trigger them using Siri.
Now enter the development labo of Insteon. Insteon has already over 200 Home-automation products that are controllable via their current Insteon Hub. They’re creating the successor called the Insteon Hub Pro which can be pre-ordered for $150. It’s accompanied by their new Insteon App which you can see in action in the video below.
Apple’s personal voice assistant. With HomeKit, you can create scenarios to direct Siri, such as “Bedtime, Siri,” that would dim the lights, lock the doors, close the garage door and set the thermostat.
The buying argument for the ‘iPhone 6 plus’ over of the regular ‘6’ is the big screen of course—next to the better camera—it really shines in some areas like displaying route information when you’re on a trip. The smaller display sized iPhones make it quite hard to see all the little details, like street names and Point of Interests.
Recently we published about how the Navigon for iOS GPS app (version 2.9) has been optimized to take advantage of the bigger 6 plus screen. For those of you who want to complete their in car 6 plus experience any time soon, here is a nice suggestion for a nice car mount. They come in multiple colors, I like the white because my previous black Navigon Design Car Kit has melted by the sun on an average spring day.
