I’ve never been convinced by Martin Hajek’s iWatch concepts. They’re beautifully done, but the stitched leather band is hideous and very un-Apple-like, and I can’t help but feel that whatever the iWatch is going to be, it isn’t going to be an unusably small iPod touch strapped to your wrist.
That said, Hajek’s just unveiled a number of high-quality renders of his iWatch concept that he did for MacUser, and if you’re a fan of [Read More...]

Over the weekend, a fascinating little post over on the Panic weblog revealed that the Lightning AV adapter meant to send video out from a connected iPhone or iPad over HDMI had an interesting little secret to it: it’s not a converter so much as it is a tiny ARM-based computer with a tiny SoC and 2GB of RAM!
The guys at Panic had a theory that this meant that the Lightning AV Adapter booted [Read More...]
Even though she can barely understand me, Siri can do some pretty cool stuff. She can find the answers to movie trivia and tell me if it’s raining, but she still can’t do really useful things yet, like turning off the lights or adjust my thermostat, even though home automation is going to be Apple’s next big thing.
A YouTube user by the name of Elvis Impersonator decided it’s time to take [Read More...]

That aforementioned imagery makes for some stunning wallpapers, and the resolutions provided are gigantic sizes at up [Read More...]

Not only did he jump out of a capsule from the edge of space, but he also broke the sound barrier without any propulsionÂ assistance, and he uses a Mac. To celebrate Felixâ€™s amazing accomplishment you can decorate your iPhone 5 with this breathtaking wallpaper that was captured moments before Baumgartner jumped. Download it here.

The visionary co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, may have been dead for a year today, but the fruits of his incredible imagination, indefatigable quest for perfection and keen design eye are still ripening and shaking from the tree of the company that he created. The recently released iPhone 5 and new Lightning Connectors were Â approved by him before he died, Â the upcoming iPad mini was greenlit personally by Steve, and Apple’s upcoming [Read More...]
