Samsung denies part in anti-Apple “Wake Up” protest

An interesting video has been making its rounds on the internet. Earlier this week a protest was held outside of an Australian Apple Store and someone was lucky enough to be filming at the time. In the video, a black bus branded with the slogan “Wake Up” pulls out of nowhere and a group of paid protesters roll out and start protesting outside the Apple…

How Apple killed cinema

I feel like it has gotten to the point where nearly everyone has at least one Apple product. Whether it is an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, most of the people I interact with in my day to day life use an iSomething. I cannot go an hour without seeing one at school, and that is just one isolated area. The point I’m getting at is that Apple products are…

Wave Cradle Sound Enhancing Stand: First Look/Gallery

One of the things I cannot stand about my iPod touch is the poor speaker quality. I love listening to music, but I always have to use my speakers or plug in headphones. Sometimes I just don’t feel plugging in. The Wave Cradle however, is bit different. The stand is crafted of two pieces of sturdy aluminum connected by two metal rods. It has a very…

iOS auto correction needs work

I love typing on my iPod touch. For me, the touchscreen is a lot faster than a tactile keyboard. My only problem with it is the auto correction. Quite frankly, something needs to change; I mean, it is basically the same as what came out on the first iPhone way back when. I’m not saying that it doesn’t work right a lot of the time, it doesn’t work all of the…

The New iPad’s battery charges beyond 100%

Battery life seems like it is always an issue for Apple. Now, they are not the only one, but it seems to come up a lot. Their latest issue after the iPhone 4S battery fiasco is now found with the New iPad. DisplayMate told iLounge that when it is connected to Apple’s 10W charger, it continues to draw power for up to an hour after iOS indicates full battery….

Corning Gorilla Glass likely for iPhone 5/6

Apple has never been open about their relationship with Corning. Even though Corning’s Gorilla Glass owes its start to Jobs (He was the one who told Corning CEO Wendell Weeks “not to be afraid” to make it back in 2006) Apple has never incorporated it into marketing material. It is not even mentioned in Apple’s supplier list. Maybe Apple just figures that…

OS X Mountain Lion to be download only

When Apple released OS X Lion, they were kind enough to realize that not everyone has broadband or fast enough internet to download a 4GB OS in a reasonable amount of time. I know what this is like because my internet is terribly slow. Anyways, they offered a USB stick packed with Lion as a (very pricey $69) alternative. However, the Cupertino…
