iPhone 5 delayed due to Samsung feud?

Apple shocked the tech industry this passed summer by not releasing the iPhone 5. Nearly everyone was sure that–after a longer wait than normal– they would release something revolutionary and truly magical. Let’s just say that the 4S, which is more or less the same as the 4 (except with a witty personal assistant), is not that. So why did Apple opt for…

Next installment of iOS 5 to include panorama function?

Back in June, a little bit of code was uncovered in iOS 5 that hinted at a native panoramic photo feature. However, iOS 5′s public release has come and passed without this feature being implemented in the final version. Well, 9to5Mac reports that some jailbreakers have figured out how to turn this feature on. As of now the user interface is nowhere near…

iPhone and iPad more attractive than competitors

The iPhone has always been easy on the eyes. With its sleek design and brilliant Retina Display, it just begs to be looked at. Steve Jobs made it a goal to make gorgeous looking products that you won’t ever want to put down. Well, whatever Apple does to make their products so aesthetically pleasing, certainly works because according to a recent study,…

Steve is watching you

I recently stumbled upon a website that you just have to stop and laugh at. The site called “Watched by Steve” is hosted by the popular blogging sight Tumblr and is basically a blog open to letting you post a photo; the one requirement is that the photo must contain the book Steve Jobs staring at you creepily in the background. Some of them are pretty…

‘Goodnight iPad’: something to tell this generation

As a young child, there was no such thing as the iPad or iPhone. We did not have Twitter or Facebook either. So, when my mommy read me a story, it was extremely low-tech. One of the books that I remember the most is a little story called Goodnight Moon. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this title, It is about a little bunny trying to go to sleep…

A (post-it) noteworthy tribute to Jobs

What would you do with 4,001 post-it notes? Undoubtedly some of you probably just thought: write 4,oo1 notes, create an epic flipbook animation, or make a miniature squadron of paper planes. While those are all awesome ideas, they all pale in comparison to what some what fans did on a Apple Store in Munich. Using a ridiculous amount of post-its, they…

Driving with Siri is illegal in CA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QV3DlISVfao Talking on your phone or sending a quick text while driving has been illegal for some time in California. Now – mind you – I still see a person on their phone from time to time, but for the most part I think that drivers here would rather not pay the hefty fine. With this law in mind, I am willing to bet that…

How to: Customize Notification Center

One of the best features in iOS 5 (in my humble opinion) is the new notifications. Now instead of popping up and being completely annoying, they sleekly roll in and roll out without interrupting what you’re doing. If you want to then check them later, they are just a simple pull away. Notification Center is what should have been implemented years ago….

Jobs’ biography already bestseller

As you may know, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is the life of Apple’s co-founder taken from two years of interviews with him, as well as family, friends, and foes. It is not available until Monday, but that does not stop it from already topping the bestseller list. If you head over to Amazon, you would find it perched at the top of the list in the number…
