CoM - boomboxpurp

As someone who travels quite a bit for work, I make sure to pack a set of headphones with me wherever I go.

This Cult of Mac Deals offer will help you do the same – thanks to BOOMBOT2.

The BOOMBOT2 is available to  [Read More...]

We all know that Samsung loves to copy Apple more than anything in the world. It’s embarrassing  And while most of the copying has been limited to hardware, Samsung’s decided to step up its game on the software front, too.

Yesterday Samsung introduced its version of Apple’s iTunes Store, except it’s got a really bad interface and even worse name. They’re calling it “Samsung Content & Services“, and with a little magic pixie dust,  [Read More...]

I’m a sucker for wood paneling my Apple products, and so I’m absolutely going to have to do this: the guys over at RAWBKNY (whom we’ve written about before) are now selling laser-etched replacement keys for the MacBook Pro.

They look great, and Michael over at RAWBKNY say that while they are only designed for the non-Retina MacBook Pro right now, he’s tweaking it so it should work on Retina MacBook Pro  [Read More...]

Got a holiday or b-day wish list you’d like to share with significant others, making sure they never need to directly ask you what you want ever again? How about a grocery list that you can add to, secure in the knowledge that your husband or wife will know to stop and get garlic at the store on the way home from work? Or even a shared task list for your work  [Read More...]

Do you know what a hookworm is? It’s a filthy parasite which hides in your intestine, secured by a its hooks, and feeds on your blood. Ugh. They affect around 600 million people in the world, and can’t be detected with the human eye. Why the hell am I telling your about this in the cult of Mac? Because an enterprising Canadian doctor has hacked his iPhone to diagnose the presence of these  [Read More...]

Plants vs Zombies 1.3.16 APK+DATA

Given the success of the original Plants vs. Zombies game, which first landed on iOS almost three years ago, I’m surprised we don’t already have a sequel. But there is one on the way. PopCap has announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2 will be launching early this summer.

That’s the good news. The bad news is, we don’t know much about it. You see, PopCap, which is now owned by EA, made  [Read More...]

Apple is gearing up to send its much-anticipated “iTV” into mass production during the second half of this year, according to sources in the Cupertino company’s supply chain, who have been speaking to DigiTimes. The set will reportedly boast a 4K “Ultra HD” display with a 3840×2160 resolution, and it’ll be controlled by voice and motion.

One of the curses of being an innovator is every time you innovate, someone comes along and says they had a patent on it first. Apple knows this dilemma well, and the latest patent infringement claim Cupertino has to defend itself against is in China over Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant.

According to a claim by Zhizhen Technology Co., a Shanghai company, the patent they have for voice recognition software as applied to its “Xiao i Robot” software was filed  [Read More...]

Apple is on the hunt for a new iOS Communications Application Engineer who will be responsible for implementing new features into FaceTime and iMessage, “taking the revolutionary iPhone to the next level.” The position is based at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, according to a new job listing on the company’s website.

As is always the case, Apple’s advert is very vague about what exactly its new engineer will be tasked with.  [Read More...]

I used to use a sleeve-style case with my original iPad, and I loved it. Sleeves protect the iPad while you carry it, and let you experience the full slimline awesomeness of a naked tablet when you take it out to use. Then Apple made the iPad 2 and the Smart Cover and that was it. The only time I change cases now is if I need something rugged, or if I’m  [Read More...]
