When the new iPad was revealed to the world, Apple told us that the new A5X chip spanked the Tegra 3 processor from NVIDIA. But those are just claims. How does the comparison stack up when you put them under real benchmarks and real world experiences?
As the war between iOS and Android rages on, it looks like Apple is slowly but surely moving away from Google services. The latest stab comes in the form of Apple abandoning Google Maps for the map-based features in the newest version of iPhoto.
We all know about that big Apple event earlier today and how it was the place where the new iPad was unveiled to the world, but there was at least one other major product reveal: the new Apple TV. While the set-top box itself is still the same inconspicuous rounded black square, its guts have been upgraded and the UI has completely changed.
As the invite let us know, today was the big day. Apple hosted a special event in San Francisco this morning to unveil the new iPad to the world. Interestingly enough, it is not the iPad 2S, the iPad HD, or even the iPad 3 that we had expected. It’s simply the new iPad. I guess they’ve decided to take the iPod approach to product names moving forward, rather than the iPhone style of naming models.
Most people know about Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, but have you heard of Regis McKenna? McKenna was the mastermind behind the famous 1984 television commercial for Apple and he was the first ad and public relations guy. Looking back, he has some choice words to say.
Apple appears to be deeply concerned about losing ownership of the iPad trademark in China and might be thinking about a Plan B. The company reportedly is eyeing the EPAD trademark which is currently being used by a Chinese vendor on their products.
We pretty much already knew that Apple was going to reveal the new iPad 3 next month, but now we can see official confirmation in the way of a special invitation to a special Apple event on March 7. But the invitation sent out seems to be showing something a little extra…
In order to get their hands on the iPad trademark, Apple allegedly hired Farncombe International and its managing director, Graham Robinson. Robinson, the real life Hunt, created a company by the name IP Application Development Limited (“IPAD Ltd.”). After adopting a false alias, Jonathan Hargreaves (the name’s Hargreaves…), Robinson contacted Proview for opening talks on the iPad name.
While it is hard to find a voice assistant even close to being as stable and capable as Siri, there is one app that actually comes pretty close, and that’s True Knowledge’s Evi. While the device has been known for having server connection problems here and there, I can attest to the fact that at least the Android version is very good, when I can get it to connect the server properly.
In the world of technology making a device thinner is always perceived as an improvement. That is why all the manufacturers from around the world try to make their products as slim as possible. Apple is also following a similar path and appears to be planning thinner keyboards for bringing out thinner notebook computers.
As we get closer and closer to the unveiling of the Apple iPad 3, we’re also starting to see more leaks of the components that will make up the next-generation tablet. And today, we’re getting our first look at the supposed A5X processor that will power the upcoming iTablet.
Many believe that Apple’s decision to keep Siri away from non-4S iOS devices is part of their marketing strategy, while some believe that the company is simply unable to provide the service to the whole iOS population. But whatever the reason is behind it, it appears like Apple will always be deciding on who all will be playing with the voice assistant. They have killed Siri on jailbroken iOS devices other than the iPhone 4S.
What if you could look at a 3D object on your iPhone and when you moved your head or shifted your eyes, the display would respond accordingly to give you what would be the real world perspective change? Apparently, that could very well be the kind of technology we’ll be finding in the iPhone 5.
Back in 2006, Taiwanese company Proview Electronics agreed to sell the rights to the iPad name over to Apple for $55,000. The problem is that Apple didn’t manage to secure the rights in China, where the name is still owned by subsidiary Proview Technology.
This definitely is not something that can be pushed aside since already there are rumors flying around regarding a higher-resolution screen for the much anticipated iPad 3. Maybe the company’s plans for this year include HiDPI screens.
Lashinsky’s book offers a very unique look inside Apple, the book sheds much-needed light on how Apple truly works and what goes around on Apple’s campus. Apple is admired around the world for the iStuff it creates, and it is known around the world for being the most secretive as well.
Apple has just had their most profitable quarter ever and the company’s shareholders are celebrating this week. But it appears like some of that profit has come after the suffering of many thousands of people. According to the company’s former executives, Apple is culpable for not addressing poor working conditions at their supplier factories in China.
If you clicked on this post hoping to see a bit of iBoobie, sorry, it’s not going to happen. Matt Bomer, the hero in White Collar, would have never guessed about what was going to come at him during a Q&A with his fans at the SoHo Apple Store. Well, he didn’t and was not prepared for the stoned lunatic who stormed the stage, naked.
Who knows, I doubt it myself since it’s really too early for Apple if we go by their past release dates. What we do know is that it could potentially show off the new iOS 5.1, which is currently in developer testing.
The latest concept for the upcoming iPhone 5, however, takes an entirely different approach. It includes two home buttons placed along the sides of the iDevice instead.
Sure, can talk to your iPhone with Siri. But what if you could wave to it as well? It appears like you will be able to do just that sometime in the future. From the latest info available via a patent application from Apple, we have got hints of a new 3D GUI for iOS mobile devices.
CES is not only about smartphones, Ultrabooks and tablets (although all those are what attract us), but also about a lot of upcoming accessories. The Celluon Prodigy is a new battery case for the iPhone 4 and 4S with an intriguing concept.

The Cord-On-Board iPhone case from CaseInity is what you need. The idea behind the case is very simple. The shock-resistant iPhone case comes with a 9.5″ charging cable tucked neatly inside, so that you can access the cable when needed.
It appears like iOS users are the ones who are crazy about mobile web browsing. According to the latest data, Apple’s operating system has finished 2011 on top with a 52.1 percent market share of mobile web, although that’s a fall from a 54.06 percent lead back in January 2011.
All this is made possible by MobileX, it’s just like a SpringBoard on the iPhone but this one is coded just for Apple TV. It will be from here where you would be able to launch iOS Apps.
It’s nothing new to see ad campaigns where one company puts down the competition in one way or another. We’ve seen it with Coke and Pepsi. We’ve seen it with Mac and PC. And now, we could be seeing it with Sony and Apple.
Today’s estimate of what Apple can gain from such settlement deals is about $10 of royalties per Android device. What will happen with this revenue tomorrow, when manufacturers will be actively cleaning their devices from last signs of disputed technologies is anybody’s guess.
On the Apple front, Gene Munster, an analyst with Piper Jaffray, believes that a redesigned iPhone 5 could appear in mid-2012. Such a handset could bring in features that Apple fans have long waited for like the introduction of 4G LTE technology. It takes an analyst to come up with that?
One of the most handy features on my LG Android smartphone is the ability to look up numbers through the browser, tap them, and have them launch into the phone dialer. While this certainly isn’t the most impressive feature on my phone, I still am glad to have it.
Both Pod2g from Chronic Dev-team and MuscleNerd from iPhone Dev-team are working hard to provide an untethered jailbreak for iOS5, particularly with A5-powered iDevices. And they’re both getting awfully close.

It seems that the declining relationship between Samsung and Apple is really starting to heat up a little. First, it seems likely that Apple is dropping Samsung in favor of Sharp for its next-gen displays. Now, Samsung has decided to create an ad poking fun of Apple’s iPhone 4G in favor of the Galaxy S II.
The news of the device has sparked the imaginations of many, including Guilherme M. Schasiepen who has created a fantastic concept design for what he believes an Apple Television should look like. The concept is named the “iTV” and features a super-thin, minimalistic styling that is decisively Apple-esque. According to the concept the device would offer abilities such as Siri Voice Control, multi-touch, FaceTime HD, AirPlay, and no-glasses 3D technology.
