When will Apple finally release the iPhone 5?

I am in shock.  For quite some time now I was absolutely certain that Apple would send out invites today for a September 21 event.  Clearly I was wrong. Predicting Apple’s events in the past has been much simpler, this year no one knows what is going on. What I do know is this: without invites being sent today, the event will take place no sooner…

The curious case of the Reminders app

I’m having a major problem with iOS 5 beta 7 on my iPhone 3GS; the reminders app is not working properly.  Though the new standard app may not be important to some of you — and viewed as just another app that is not removable — it is something I have been looking forward to since Apple revealed it in June.  I love to stay organized. When I first…

iPhone 5 Rumor Roundup

This week has been full of the most exciting iPhone 5 rumors of the entire summer.  In addition to that, they are growing incredibly solid and lead me to believe that I could own a new device (of which I still don’t have much certainty as far as its looks go) by this time next month.  Why am I so positive that it’s coming?  Read on and you will…

iPhone 5 Website Mockup

Before you watch this, know that it is 100 percent fake.  After you watch this, wonder to yourself, “who has the time to make this?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxYnuHX3LCI Video made by iPhone5Website.  Yes, it is in German, and yes, it looks incredibly real.  Is anyone else out there excited for the iPhone 5?  Do you think Apple’s…

Why can’t iBooks be read on my Mac?

The headline kind of says it all here, but I’m seriously wondering why this is.  I mean, I don’t have an iPad so using iBooks to read only on my iPhone doesn’t seem practical (wow that was a lot of i’s, what has Apple done to us?) If I could just pick up my MacBook and begin reading the latest Alex Rider novel (honestly my favorite book series ever)…

The unknowns surrounding the iPhone 5

Every time I read a rumor, I forget to take it with the so-called ‘grains of salt’ and instead read it as fact.  I’m sure I’m not the only one making this mistake, or at least I hope not.  The problem with the tech world that we live in is that long before a new product is ready to hit the market, rumors, pictures and ‘people familiar with the matter’…

New iPhone Commercials (AirPlay and FaceTime)

Apple just added two new iPhone commercials to its “if you don’t have an iPhone” ad campaign.  As always they are simple and to the point, and suggest that everyone should have an iPhone unless they’d rather miss out on new technology.  I won’t get into that argument though, so check out the new ads…

iPhone 5 in Covert Affairs Episode? Let’s hope not

Let me start out by being honest here, I have never seen Covert Affairs. But, when I heard that they could have maybe, possibly unveiled what the next iPhone may or may not look like, I had to check out the picture online.  What I saw was a horrible, plastic looking impostor that somewhat resembles an iPhone (hopefully nothing like the long-awaited…

iPad: now powered by the sun

Voltaic just released its new iPad case, dubbed the Spark Tablet Case. (Personally I like just plain Spark better, but I can understand why Voltaic would want its new case to appeal to all tablets, not just the iPad). This new case is capable of charging your tablet in just 10 hours of sunlight, and weighs only 2.5 pounds. Other highlights include the…
