Apple users getting Samsunged?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?f&v=vOSgfvTC35A Samsung has yet again released an attack ad against Apple promoting their new Galaxy S II, this one introducing a new term: Samsunged. The Korean company is obviously going for the Google approach by making their company’s name into a verb (like Googled). I am assuming that to be “Samsunged” means that…

iBooks 2 is a high schooler’s dream

As soon as I got home from school today, I raced to my computer to find out all of the details of this morning’s announcement. I can honestly say that I am more excited now than I was when the iPhone 4S came out. Although it was not a hardware announcement, what they unveiled is just as magical. Apple literally revolutionized the educational system in one…

SpareOne phone lasts 15 years on single charge

SpareOne has just debuted a phone at CES that I think is pretty remarkable, not because it is a smartphone overflowing with awesome specs (it is quite the opposite), but because of its incredible battery life. The SpareOne phone is the first phone to run off of a single AA battery. This means that you are not tied down to a…

Apple number one company to copy from

Apple is constantly breaking new ground and advancing technology. And when they are not doing that, they are re-inventing old technology that we forgot we had and making us want it all over again. As far as the mobile and tablet market is concerned, Apple is pretty much the leader of the pack; there is no question about that in my mind. But more and more…

iPad 2 survives drop from space

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4xNcF6T7Is “iPad 2 survives fall from 100,000 feet!” This and variations of this title have been popping up on tech blogs all around. Perking my interest of course, I thought I would take a look. What I saw was pretty amazing. The people over at G-form—who have been known to do crazy stunts promoting their iPad…

Rumor: quad-core A6 processor on its way?

It is pretty much expected that the next generation of iPad, as well as iPhone, will be faster than their current models. As time goes on, Apple develops new technology; back in 2010 it was the A4, 2011 the A5, so we can assume that this year we will see an A6 processor. Now just uncovered in some code buried in iOS 5.1 beta 2 is some text that suggests…

Hiker saved by iPhone flash

There used to be a time where if you got lost in the forest, you had better know how to start a fire, make a shelter, pick berries, and maybe even wrestle a bear. However, in this digital age, all you really need is a smartphone with great coverage and a led flash. When Mr. Tkacik of Maryland got lost, it was a good thing that he had his iPhone with…

A look at Apple’s web history

I recently stumbled upon the WayBack Machine. It is hosted by the Internet Archive and allows you to look back at archived versions of pretty much any web site. So, this morning I spent a couple hours traveling through time, looking at Apple’s homepage from 1997-2012.  The changes that happen are pretty interesting. I’ve put together a little gallery…
