The new Mac Pro is tiny. How tiny? It’s only slightly bigger than a roll of paper towels. And yet inside it is the power to render, I dunno, a jillion 3D models of them.

Office-365-iPhone

The app boasts support for charts, animations, SmartArt graphics and shapes, and more.

Office Mobile brings all all of the documents you have stored in the cloud to your iPhone, and all those you’ve recently been using on your computer are readily  [Read More…]

iBooks has been a big successful for Apple — despite the ongoing price fixing case from the Department of Justice — but it’s a service that may never have been if Eddy Cue hadn’t have convinced Steve Jobs that it would be awesome on the iPad.

Before Apple was gearing up to launch its popular tablet in late 2009, Steve Jobs wasn’t interested in the iBooks idea, and he felt that e-books  [Read More…]

Got wood? Good. Then you won’t be interested in the new Clic Wooden case from Native Union. It’s a rather slick little number featuring a solid cherry wood back panel with a high-gloss plastic insert.

I have always been skeptical of wooden cases for tech gadgets: it always seemed like trying to hide the essence of the device in an olde worlde cloak. But having tried out a couple (the Kubxlab Ultra  [Read More…]

Mango is yet another browser based text editor from Hog Bay Software, the folks behind apps such as TaskPaper and FoldingText. This one is a Markdown editor, but as usual with anything made by Jesse Grosjean, it has some clever twists.

If you know Markdown, you can dive right in. Documents are saved locally in your browser’s own storage (I quit and relaunched Safari and this post was still there). There are  [Read More…]

It’s a long way to December, but write this one down on the list of gifts you’re planning to buy me this Christmas: the Lomo Konstruktor, a plastic kit that turns into a plastic camera. As a photo geek who likes to make things and tinker, this is just about perfect.

What’s more, you won;t have to spend too much to make me happy: the Konstruktor is just €35/$ 35.

So what  [Read More…]

While competing smartphone manufacturers are producing devices in a whole host of different sizes, Apple’s iPhone has had only two screen sizes in its six-year history. But according to four sources with knowledge of Apple’s plans, who have been speaking to Reuters, the Cupertino company is “considering” iPhones with 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch displays.

It is also said to be working on a cheaper iPhone that will come in a range of different colors.

Pentax’s new Q7 has been styled to look like it was put together by somebody in shop class when told to “make a camera” out of whatever wooden offcuts were laying around the place. It can even be had in 120 different color combos, presumably all hideous.

But the Q7 does add one thing that’s worth noting: A bigger sensor. And judging by how the lenses now match that sensor in terms of  [Read More…]

PhotoForge And KitCam Axed As Yahoo Buys Developer

Yahoo has bought the developer of the fantastic iOS apps PhotoForge and KitCam. Ghostbird’s software team will now work for Yahoo, helping to make Flickr even better. And – as ever with these things – development on both apps will stop.

PhotoForge was (it’s gone from the App Store, in Spain at least) a fantastic photo editing app for the iPad, and it’s a real shame to see it go – it  [Read More…]
