New iPhone in June?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2009

New iPhone in June?If you’re on the lookout for the next iPhone, Apple is in the habit of refreshing the iPod and iPhone on a somewhat regular schedule. Therefore a new iPhone arriving in June wouldn’t be a surprise. Business 24/7 mentions a brand new iPhone in June.

As usual, take it for the rumor that it is. It could be a mistake, or a misquote, or even a conspiracy to throw us off, but it’s interesting. We’ll just have to wait and see. Meanwhile, over at Apple Insider there is mention of an upcoming iPhone with an architecture overhaul. iPhone nano anyone?

Palm not worried about Apple multi-touch patent

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 28th, 2009

Apple LogoPatents are often looked on with disdain by consumers and other businesses. The problem is that many patents that are approved are for technologies that were already around or not new. This leaves firms that have been producing products similar to a newly issued patent open for suit.

Many are feeling that this is the case with the patent Apple was granted on multi-touch and gesture control for computers and mobile phones. Multi-touch and gesture control are commonly used in the technology world. I wondered yesterday if Apple’s new patent would send the company on a crusade of legal action against everyone who is using multi-touch in their products.

Tiny Pictures Radar on iPhoneMobile phone users are increasingly taking images with their camera phones and sharing them with friends around the block or around the country on social networks. Sharing of images in real-time is one of the reasons the cellular networks in Washington D.C. were strained so much during the recent inauguration of president Obama.

A new application is now available for the iPhone called Tiny Pictures Radar. The purpose of the Radar app is to let iPhone users share images they take with the phone in real-time with friends on any network using any mobile device.

iLife ‘09One of the things I have always liked about Apple is that it bundles much of the software a user needs or wants with the computer. For instance, photo editing applications, web authoring, and DVD making are all included in the iLife suite.

Apple’s latest iLife version is now available for purchase. As of today iLife ’09 is available for Mac owners for a $79 single license upgrade. Users with more than one Mac in the home can get a family pack with five licenses for $99.

Apple gets patent on multi-touch

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 27th, 2009

Apple LogoPatents are a huge source of income for many companies, whatever the companies plan to do with the patents. Sometimes patents end up being used exclusively by one company and other times the company will license the patents to other firms for a fee.

Apple has been granted a major patent recently that covers multi-touch and gesture controls on computers and computer-like devices. With the massive popularity of touch-capable devices, this patent could prove to be the most lucrative patent Apple owns.

Wobbling boob app hits iPhone

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 23rd, 2009

Wobble for iPhoneLike most guys, I have a high appreciation for boobs. I sincerely think that cleavage is the only reason for Jessica Simpson to live. A new app for the iPhone has been announced that will help guys take their appreciation for Baywatch style boobage to a whole new level.

The app is called Wobble and lets you take pictures of your favorite girl (or any other object) and choose specific sections of the image to add a Wobble effect to. Sure, you can make other things wobble like your friends beer belly, but that’s not the real reason for this app.

Guy covers car in Apple stickersYou can spot the true Apple fanboys when you see them. Sometimes they are born with the mark of the beast Steve. Sometimes they have the Apple logo spanked onto their skin. In this case, some guy went crazy sticking Apple stickers all over his car.

One thing. Sticking Apple stickers all over one’s car doesn’t make you the biggest Apple fanboy. It just makes you the biggest Apple fanboy with the most stickers and a fugly ride.

SEC to investigate Apple over Jobs’ health?

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 22nd, 2009

Apple LogoTo many it seemed odd when rumors of the ailing health of Steve Jobs first started to circulate only to be flatly denied by Apple. With Jobs so integral to the company and the Apple brand, the mere rumor of a health problem for Jobs is enough to make investors and consumer nervous.

It wasn’t long ago that Apple finally had to admit that Jobs had a health issue that was severe enough that he had to step down for an undisclosed period as CEO of Apple. Now rumors are coming in that the SEC may be investigating Apple for possible legal infractions for not disclosing Jobs’ health.

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2009

Steve Jobs taking leave of absence from Apple due to healthSadly, we kinda saw this one coming. Apple has issued a statement saying that Steve Jobs will be taking a leave of absence due to health reasons. Jobs sent out a letter to Apple employees today that stated that his previously-explained health problems are “more complex” than he first thought, and that he also plans to return in June.

Not to worry, he will still be around for major strategy decisions and the like, and Tim Cook will take over the day-to-day stuff while he’s away. Whether an Apple fan or not, most of us admire the man and what he has accomplished. Here’s to hoping he makes a complete recovery and things get back to normal. Check out the letter below.

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 5th, 2009

Steve Jobs still around, blames hormone imbalance for his weight lossAs if to say that rumors of his impending health decline have been greatly exaggerated, Steve Jobs has come clean about his weight loss in a open letter to the Apple community, just a day before Macworld.

He says that a hormone imbalance is to blame. “The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I’ve already begun treatment,”. Doctors expect that it will take him until late Spring to regain the weight and body mass that we are used to seeing. Jobs will also stay on as CEO during his recovery.

Steve Jobs’ health decline reason for canceling Macworld?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on December 30th, 2008

Steve Jobs’ health decline reason for canceling Macworld?So many Apple rumors. Who can keep up with all of them? Most revolve around the latest gadgets from the company. The latest rumors are regarding Apple CEO Steve Jobs decision to not be a part of Macworld, cite to the state of his physical health as the reason. According to sources, “Apple misrepresented the reasons behind Macworld and Jobs’ keynote cancellation.” The real cause is said to be his rapidly declining health.

With this recent alleged news Apple has chosen to remove the “hype factor” instead of letting it later destroy the company when the news of Jobs’ health surfaces later this spring. Apparently, no longer needing Macworld is just a cover designed by the worldwide “loyalty” department.
