iPhone-5-design

7 years ago, Steve Jobs and Co. put their hope in a completely new device. The computer company designed and manufactured a mobile device that was introduced as a mobile phone, music player and internet communication device. It was an uphill battle that will have them enter a very competitive, congested and hungry industry filled with companies with deep pockets. Not to mention the constant barrage of headaches dealing with carriers. Something that Apple had never done. This device was named the iPhone.

Today, the iPhone has grown to become the world’s most important device to Apple. Not only have they succeeded in taking over the market, but they have obtained 73% of the world’s mobile operating profits (Samsung being the only other significant company making money – the others are losing money). So with so much pressure to continue outperforming the market, what does the newly released iPhone 5 bring to the market? Continue Reading…

As soon as the iPhone 5 was revealed, you heard the pundits saying that this was a mediocre update that looks exactly like the iPhone before it. They laughed it off and proceeded to mock the device throughout the internets while showing off their plastic devices with 37 inch screens and tweeting about Apple’s failed innovation.

Only in America do we call a device a disappointment when everything about it has been greatly improved. Just to put things into perspective: Continue Reading…

Unless you have been living under a rock, you are aware that Apple has sent out their invitations for the unveiling of their next iPhone. Most people looked at the invite and said, “cool” and went on with their lives. I didn’t! I went home and put on my discernment hat on and decided to look deep into the invitation and I think I know exactly what we will see next week.

1. iPhone 5. This is what most people are saying. However, I don’t think this is in fact the real deal. You see, this is not the iPhone 5. There have already been 5 iPhones (iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S) and this would make it the 6th iPhone. So this doesn’t make sense to me. However, this is Apple and they don’t often make sense. Continue Reading…

Having drooled over Apple products for years before converting to Mac 3 years ago I’ve marveled at their rate of innovation. Apple makes no secret of the fact they cannabalize their own product lines with an annual release of upgraded models or brand new devices entirely. And each time they dominate.

iOS6

We have covered iOS 6 since it was released to the developers and boy have we enjoyed it. We have showed you in-depth reviews, hands on and even the little things iOS 6 has to offer, yet there is more to discover.

I thought, with the help of the internet and my iDevices with iOS 6 on it, I would recap what we know and what is so awesome about the supposed “small” update.

The list below is by no means a full list but rather a list of some of the bigger, and smaller things that make the update worth waiting for! Continue Reading…

iOS6Coming

Those who were looking for a major overhaul on Apple’s latest mobile operating system were left dissappointed on Monday when iOS 6 looked an aweful lot like the same. Granted there are some really nice changes in Apple’s 1st beta, and I’m sure we’ll see even more changes before it officially kicks off into the big dance of public release. But really there was nothing of major change like when iOS 5 brought a new notification function. Multitasking is still its awkward and screen real estate wasting self. No widgets. No Palm-esk card switching. Design-wise, they didn’t do any major overhauls but for a few apps.

But iOS 6 isn’t about major redesign. It was about Siri, Maps and connections. But iOS 6 does have a lot of little changes – little tweaks here and there with the goal of making it an overall better experience.

You already know about the majors things, and maybe you’re already goofing around with iOS 6 yourself. I just wanted to share some of the little things I noticed with iOS 6: Continue Reading…

Everyone is clamoring for the latest news on iOS 6 and which iDevice works with it and which doesn’t. Well the good folks over at Macrumors put together a great little grid on what is and what isn’t support per iDevice.

iOS 6 has brought some amazing features to our already pretty darn awesome mobile operating system from Apple. Facebook integration for the old folks and stalkers, Tweeting from the notification center for us young hip people, Facetime over 3G for the grandparents and much more.

But that doesn’t mean it will all work on your iDevice. Hit up the grid below to see what you can and can’t do when iOS 6 hits. Continue Reading…
