Larger display iPhones coming?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2010

Wall Street analyst from Kaufman Brothers, Shaw Wu, recently said that sources familiar with Apple’s overseas suppliers see larger as well as smaller displays making their way to iPhones very soon. Mr. Wu says:

“We believe Apple moving to a more complete iPhone product line makes strategic sense in that its iPhone 4 addresses only the high-end of the market. We think Apple should take a page out of its iPod playbook where it has had a lot (of) success with a 3-tier strategy addressing entry-level, mid-range and high-end, making it difficult for competitors.”

Study shows iPhone interest dropping, Android about even

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 30th, 2010

About as many smartphone buyers want an Android device as want iPhones. At least according to the latest ChangeWave metric. Consumer’s plans to get an iPhone have cooled off after the iPhone 4 high in June, which is only to be expected. In September about 38 percent wanted Apple’s handset, that’s down from half three months earlier. Android interest at the same time has spiked and now has almost as much interest at 37 percent, which is an all-time high for Google.

With just a fraction of interest, the launch of the BlackBerry Torch barely had an effect. RIM only moved one point to six percent.

Minimalist 4 iPhone 4 case is part wallet

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on September 15th, 2010

I am not the sort of person to pack a wallet with a bunch of photos, business cards, and general junk until it’s so swollen you can’t even sit on it. I like thin wallets that go in the front pocket and the only things I take with me are a single car key, my iPhone, and my wallet when I leave the house.

An awesome new iPhone 4 case has turned up that will let me ditch the wallet and only carry the iPhone and my car key when I go out. The case is called the Minimalist 4 and is made by Trtl Bot. It does all the normal stuff you expect a case to do like protect your phone if you drop it. The thing is made from recycled plastic right here in the USA.

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on September 12th, 2010

Last Friday Microsoft employees got out of their cubicles at the Redmond campus to attend a funeral parade that resembles some kind of geek Mardi Gras. There were apparently plenty of crazy outfits, like zombies, Darth Vader and even some Village People impersonations. They were there to lament the BlackBerry and iPhone’s demise.

It looks like it was a sad affair as iPhone and Blackberry mock-ups were carried coffin style to the grave. Obviously Microsoft wanted to make a statement about the upcoming Windows Phone 7.

The UK take their apps seriously. The government is reportedly saving millions of Pounds (about $350 million US dollars) just by developing iGovernment apps that help citizens. The Local Government Association (LGA) implemented the apps to allow iPhone users to get information on road conditions, pay for parking and lots of other stuff.

Control your iPhone with your mind

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2010

If only you could command your iPhone with your thoughts? Maybe you can after all. That’s the idea behind the XWave, a headset that turns your brain’s electrical activity into signals that can control your phone.

Details are scarce, but it is basically an interpreter, a middle man if you will, that allows your head and your iPhone to communicate. The XWave has a pad that rests on your forehead, picking up the tiny electrical signals that change along with your changing thoughts. The headset comes bundled with some apps that let you control your music library etc, and PLX is seeking out developers to create new apps for the headset as well.

We love anything that helps us get rid of wires around here. So we are excited about Energizer’s new inductive charger that is Qi enabled. Qi is the wireless charging standard developed by the Wireless Power Consortium, and should eventually make its way into more and more devices.

The charger will work with the iPhone or the Blackberry Curve 8900. The battery door for the Blackberry and the sleeve case for the iPhone 3G/3GS are both sold separately. Luckily, this device has enough room to charge three devices at the same time, which is nice.
