iOS 7 concepts are a dime a dozen these days. Everyone is coming up with short video walkthroughs of what they think the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system will look like.
Rumors say that Apple is making iOS 7 “flatter” and less skeuomorphic (no pool table felt in Game Center, for example). That has led a lot of concept creators to what I think are, frankly, some overdone conclusions. Yesterday [Read More...]
Misleading and misunderstanding blogging and reporting this week is leading everybody into falsely believing that Intel plans to ship or support Android-based laptops.
This has sparked debate over the wisdom or folly of Android laptops.
I’ll make a case for why Android laptops are a great idea, but first let’s kill the myth that Intel announced Android laptops.
As far as I can tell, the false idea originated with a C|net [Read More...]

The New York Times‘ Nick Bilton reminded everyone recently what we previously learned from longtime Apple board member Mickey Drexler: Steve Jobs wanted to build an Apple iCar.
People tend to dismiss the idea as a goofy pipe dream. In fact, not only is an Apple iCar a great idea, it’s perfectly aligned with Apple’s history and mission.
Here’s how they should do it.
An automobile performs several functions. First and [Read More...]

Apple’s Newton platform was considered to be ahead of its time, even though Steve Jobs eventually axed the iPhone-like device when he made his return back to Apple. But even though the Newton was futuristic, it could have been even better if Apple had listened to Qualcomm’s advice.
During an interview with Charlie Rose, Qualcomm’s CEO Paul Jacobs said that he tried to convince Apple to put a radio chip in the [Read More...]
One of the best pieces of iPhonography kit we’ve played with is the Olloclip, a tiny gizmo that clips onto the corner of the iPhone 4/S and gives photographers the use of three additional lenses; now it’s finally available for the iPhone 5.
Attach it one way and the Olloclip’s wide-angle lens fits over the iPhone’s lens for about double the field of view of the already-wide stock view; flip it around [Read More...]
I’ve seen the iPad morph into a lot of things, but the press release for this little trick definitely slackened my jaw: It’s an appcessory that turns the iPad into a miniature foosball table.
Classic Match Foosball is the latest gadget from New Potato, who were one of the very first players in the appcessory market (you might remember their Jackpot Slots slot machine and LiveRider bike computer). The toy combines eight [Read More...]
And just like that, the oldÂ AppleÂ is dead, and a new Apple is born. I believe youâ€™ll see massive changes to Apple products by next summer.
Apple had to re-create its products to correct a recent string of failures, including the catastrophic Maps debacle and the ongoing train wrecks that are Siri and skeuomorphic design.
Here’s why putting Jonathan Ive in charge of software design was an insanely great idea.

With so many rumors of a smaller iPad mini floating around, it’s sounding increasingly possible that Apple may indeed make such a device. Assumed to have a 7.85″ vertical display, it would be about 2″ smaller than the current iPad, so how would that feel and what would it look like?
Both MacStories and MacRumors have put together some different mockups of what an iPad mini could [Read More...]
