Blackberry Messenger might finally be coming to iOS this summer… but it’s just been confirmed that doesn’t mean a native iPad version.
The depressing word comes straight from Blackberry’s software portfolio chief Vivek Bhardwaj, who confirmed to Trusted Reviews:
At this point it is iOS and Android, and thatâ€™s iOS phones running iOS 6 and higher… Smartphone is our real focus and again it comes back to what BBM is. If [Read More...]
Last year, there was a lot of debate about whether the iPhone 5 (the sixth iPhone at the time) would be called the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 6, and the same happened the year before as people bickered about whether Apple should call the iPhone 4S the iPhone 5.
As the seventh-generation iPhone approaches, the debate is opening up again: what should Apple call it? Ex-Apple ad man Ken Segall has [Read More...]
$ 7 is getting close to the lower limit on prices for iPad cases – unless you choose to make your own out of recycled materials that is. Actually, the Apple Pie iPad case is made from recycled materials. It’s a cardboard folio that’ll protect your iPad from adults and kids alike.
What I like most is that you can draw on this case, or cover it with stickers, and if you hate [Read More...]
We’ve always thought that Apple’s rumored iWatch probably won’t have the ability to enter text, but maybe we’re wrong. Maybe Apple will use software similar to this ZoomBoard concept that lets you zoom in on a keyboard, tap the letter you want, zoom back out, and then find new characters.
Users who have tested the prototype were able to type about 10 words per minute with it, which is pretty [Read More...]
Although it’s been almost over a week since the carnage of the Boston Marathon Bombings and the related manhunt and shootout came to a close, but there are still a lot more questions than answers about what happened and why.
A new report from Boston.com, though, has filled in some of the blanks in regards to the three hours on April 18th in which the Tsarnaev brothers carjacked a Cadillac driven by [Read More...]
Even though the iPhone 5 was launched in October of 2012, many analysts and pundits believe that Apple will likely release the iPhone 5S sometime this summer.
KGI Securities analysts Ming-Chi Kuo thinks that you shouldn’t get your hopes too high for a new iPhone though. In a report he released today, Kuo claims Apple is facing production problems on both the iPhone 5 and cheaper iPhone and that they won’t launch [Read More...]
We’ve seen a lot of nutty fake iPhone prototype mockups. Most of them are based off the whims of some artsy designer, but this lastest concept is a even whackier because it’s a Photoshop rendering based off an actual Apple patent.Â
In the future, smartphones might look like this. I sure hope not. What’s the benefit of having a slightly curved display rather than a flat surface? Won’t videos look weird and [Read More...]
After Judge Lucy Koh decided to invalidate $ 450.5 million of the original damages owed to Apple in its trial against Samsung, most of the press believed this meant Apple wasn’t going to get anywhere near the original $ 1.05 billion owed to it by Samsung. Turns out everyone was probably wrong.
Even though Judge Koh ordered a new trial to determine the proper damages to award Apple for 14 of the [Read More...]
We’ve openly speculated that the Evasi0n jailbreak might be the last public jailbreak now that Apple has closed the security holes that makes evasi0n work, but maybe we spoke too soon: well-known jailbreaker <a target=”_blank” href=”http://twitter.com/p0sixninja says he’s collected enough new exploits in iOS 6.1.3 to patch together another jailbreak.
In a couple of not-quite-modest tweets, p0sixninja said:
Well, so far it looks like the next [Read More...]
Is this the home button and vibrator for the iPhone 5S? Maybe! Who knows?
They come from a Japanese website, first noted by Nowherelese.fr, and they purport to be the first component leaks for Apple’s next-gen iPhone.
It’s plausible these are real: the iPhone 5′s home button was the first component to leak in April of last year, five months before the device was made official.
But it’s just as plausible [Read More...]
