Lala closing on May 31

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on April 30th, 2010

I think there were a lot of us out there that knew the end was near for Lala when Apple announced that it had purchased the company. Sure, some of the tech behind Lala might live on inside iTunes or other Apple offerings, but the Lala service would undoubtedly die.

Apple has now announced that it will be killing Lala on May 31. Current users of the service can continue to use Lala until that day and no new users are being accepted.

LG Display to triple OLED capacity with huge investment

Posted in LG by Shane McGlaun on April 22nd, 2010

OLED screens are great; they use less power than LCD tech and offer better colors. The catch is that the typical OLED is much more expensive and large screens are not around. The cost reason means that most OLED screens so far are used in the smartphone realm.

LG Display is set to make a huge $225.7 million investment to triple its OLED building capacity. The increased capacity is good for the market because more screen production means lower prices.


iPad 2 already in development, with OLED screen?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 19th, 2010

Looks like Apple may have version 2.0 of the iPad in the works already, with sources claiming that development has already begun. And if you believe the rumors, the screen is about to get an OLED makeover.

OLED displays are more vibrant than the LCD panels currently in the iPad, but so far are too expensive to use cost-effectively in anything larger than a mobile phone. However, analysts are predicting that OLED prices will drop eventually, but not until at least 2011. If the iPad 2.0 was to have an OLED screen and be released with Apple’s traditional update schedule, it’s unlikely the prices would drop in time.

MacBooks may finally be updated next week

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on April 9th, 2010

Mac Fans have been crying for an update to the beloved lie of MacBook notebooks for a long time now. Some sources claim that Apple fans can blame Acer for at least some of the delay after the company snapped up most all of the new Intel Core 2010 processors.

That processor backorder is over now and new rumors coming from Australia are surfacing pointing to next Tuesday for the long waited update. At the same time, the 15-inch MacBook Pro models have been pulled from Best Buy websites here in the US.

New iPhone to have backside touch, AMOLED?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2010

iPhone rumors are flying fast and furious this week. To add some fuel to the fire, here’s some speculation from UBS analyst Maynard Um. He claims that the new iPhones may have a touch sensitive back, which is something that people have speculated about for some time. Some other possible features include a 5-megapixel camera, 64GB of storage, AMOLED display and longer battery life.

All of those would be nice, but we will see what happens. Apple could turn the back of the iPhone into a touch-sensitive surface, similar to the Magic Mouse. It would make the iPhone even more versatile. But we just don’t know.

Pink Floyd wins legal battle over digital sale of individual songs

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on March 11th, 2010

Pink Floyd has won a legal battle with its record label EMI over whether the label should be allowed to distribute digital versions of the band’s material on a song by song basis as it does through Apple’s iTunes Store. Pink Floyd is just one of several bands that have objected to the splitting up of what it considers to be single pieces of work.

And any Pink Floyd fan knows that you can’t just listen to one track and get the full experience. And if you only want one song, you clearly don’t get it anyway. The band has been signed to EMI since 1967 and said that their contract meant their albums could not be split up without their permission. A judge agreed and said that the contract contained a clause to “preserve the artistic integrity of the albums”.


Will there be an iPad shortage at launch?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2010

Peter Misek from Canaccord Adams says that the iPad could have some components supply issues that would limit the number of units available worldwide at launch to 300,000 units for the month of March. Apparently, there’s an unspecified production problem at the contracting company that manufactures the iPad.

They had hoped to have 1M units ready by launch. Apple had said during the iPad’s unveiling that the iPad would be available “worldwide” in “60 days” for the WiFi version and in 90 day for the 3G enabled version, so maybe this will only affect the WiFi version?

Mac Pro to get 6-Core Intel i7 Processors?

Posted in Mac by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2010

Apple’s Mac Pro hasn’t had an update since September 2009. That was when the Quad-Core model got support for 16GB of RAM. The new rumor is that the Core i7-980X and Core i7-970 processors might be arriving this month. You might remember that Apple was the first to use the Nehalem Xeon, having an exclusive deal with Intel. Should history repeat itself, we might see Apple having exclusivity with Intel’s latest processors. At least for a while.

These new processors will be the first dual-socket, six-core processors from Intel. The processor will feature 6 cores and 12 threads, a dual-processor configuration will mean the i7-980X Mac Pro will have 12 physical cores and 24 logical cores with a top frequency of 3.33GHz.

Fake Steve Jobs — tablet cures lupus

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 22nd, 2010

I think we can all admit that the Fake Steve Jobs is much more entertaining than the real Jobs. Sure, the fake one is fake and all, but I think most of us can admit that the fakies musings are at times dangerously close to how most of us figure the real Steve Jobs thinks.

A recent post by Fake Jobs is very funny and talks about the long rumored Apple Tablet. It appears that the new tablet is so damn cool that it cures lupus. You have to read it to get the full effect, but fakie writes, “He showed it to his wife. She used it for a while. Next morning they wake up, and her lupus is gone.”

New iPhone to feature touch sensitive casing?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on January 14th, 2010

The rumors surrounding Apple’s new iPhone just won’t stop. The latest rumor suggests that Apple might have something in the works regarding the iPhone’s casing. It might be a touch-sensitive case, similar to the case that the Apple Magic Mouse has.

If true, this could change the device big time. It won’t be so great for those third-party iPhone protector casings, which would block the touch function.


Email points to Core i5 processor update for MacBook Pro

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on January 14th, 2010

For most computer makers a simple processor update isn’t a big deal to consumers. If Dell tosses a recently announced CPU in a notebook, most people don’t think much about it. When Apple changes something though, the hoards of fans get very excited.

Some Apple fans are probably giddy right now after an email from Intel sent to members of the Intel Retail Edge program was sent out showing a MacBook Pro with an Intel Core i5 CPU up for grabs. The email invited the members to enter to win one of two new MacBook Pro notebooks with the Core i5 processor.

iPhone 4G to be released in June?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2010

Brace yourself for the latest iPhone 4G rumor. This will surprise no one, but according to sources in Korea, the next iPhone will likely be named the “iPhone 4G”. Sources even claim that KT has signed a deal with Apple to release the iPhone 4G in June, when the phone is launched worldwide.

The rumor claims that the iPhone 4G will feature 2 cameras for video calling, better battery life, and maybe mobile TV service (That could just be for Korea). What Do you think? Anything to these rumors?
