    Following a concept that showed off a possible look at the iPhone 6 based on recent leaked info, French website Nowhereelse.fr [Google Translate] and graphic designer Martin Hajek have once again teamed up to showcase renders for an "iPhone 6s" and "iPhone 6c", which are based off of Apple's current iPhones and alleged iPhone 6 design drawings posted by Japanese magazine MacFan. The renderings show iPhone 6s devices in gold and space grey colors, which retain the same tint as seen in the corresponding iPhone 5s models but adopt the thin, rounded profile that has been rumored for the iPhone 6.

  • Nike Could Partner With Apple to Bring NikeFuel Features to iWatch

    Nike is said to be trimming its Fuelband team as the company moves its efforts away from hardware in order to focus on its NikeFuel and Nike+ software. What is next for Nike for may be a partnership with Apple to produce a Nike fitness app that could pair with Apple's iWatch hardware, theorizes GigaOm.If Nike exits the physical wearable market, as now seems likely, Apple will be the primary sensor maker for Nike’s future wearable apps given the length and depth of the two companies’ close ties.

  • Apple Patents Technology to Disable Certain Phone Functions While Driving

    22 Apr 2014 | 6:19 am
    Apple today was awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (via AppleInsider) that describes technology to partially disable a phone when the user is driving. The patent details several different lockout mechanisms that block functions like texting and SMS in order to reduce distracted driving. U.S. Patent No. 8,706,143 describes two main methods to block select iPhone features. The first method requires no input from the car and uses the iPhone's accelerometer and other on-board sensors to determine when a user is driving. Another method uses direct input from a car, which…
  • Cannibalization of iPad Mini by iPhone 6 Unlikely to Negatively Affect Apple's Overall Sales

    Kelly Hodgkins
    21 Apr 2014 | 7:18 am
    Apple is expected to introduce a large-screened iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch model arriving this fall and a 5.5-inch version debuting early next year. Though this large iPhone may cannibalize iPad mini sales, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster does not believe this shift in sales will have a net effect on Apple, reports CNET. In a Monday note to investors, Munster argues that many iPhone owners will accelerate their upgrade to buy the iPhone 6 instead of the iPad mini, while other customers will purchase a bigger iPhone and pair it with an iPad Air. The net effect on Apple is an equal amount of…

    Amazon Kindle users will be happy to hear that the iOS client for the e-book service received a nice little update this morning. The release, which brings the app to version 4.2, brings about two substantial new features: Table of Contents and X-Ray Smart Look-Up, and other improvements. The first new feature is fairly self-explanatory—customers can now access a book’s table of contents from within the app—but the second is a bit more subtle. X-Ray Smart Look-Up will allow users to take advantage of Amazon’s quick-referencing tool without leaving their current page…...
  • Google covering some of Samsung’s legal fees, liabilities in Apple trial

    Cody Lee
    23 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    We’ve known pretty much all along that Google was going to be more involved this time around in the Apple-Samsung trial. Many of the features Apple claims infringe on its software patents are baked right into Android, so of course it would be in the Mountain View company’s best interest to become much more involved. But I’m not sure anyone knew the extent of Google’s involvement until yesterday, when a lawyer for the tech giant said that it had reached an agreement with Samsung to foot the bill for a large portion of its legal fees. It also told the Korean firm it…

    Apple has this evening posted a new TV commercial for the iPhone 5s to its YouTube channel. The ad, which was spotted airing during tonight’s episode of ABC’s ‘Agents of SHIELD,’ touts the handset’s ability to morph into a useful tool for people in various lines of work. Set to the tune of ”Gigantic,” by the Pixies, the spot shows iPhone 5s owners using the device to do things like play music, control stage lighting in a theater, create short movies, create art installations and more.

    ShareDraft is a new jailbreak tweak that lets users save share sheet messages as drafts. The share sheets, which are used for iOS’ built-in Twitter and Facebook sharing, normally force users to send a message or lose it. With ShareDraft installed, you can save messages to drafts and recover those drafts when sending future messages. We’ve taken ShareDraft for a spin on video, and while it isn’t perfect, heavy share sheet users might find it to be a handy add-on. Check past the break for the full video review....

    Mike Wehner
    22 Apr 2014 | 6:00 pm
    Leave it to a game designer to dream up the bulkiest, most awkward iPhone case ever: This is the iDroid. Made to mimic the look of an in-game communicator in the game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the case has a bunch of goofy features. For starters, it has a lid over the camera lens, which opens to reveal the camera itself and a "MAINTENANCE ALERT" warning label. There's a bright blue LED in a blue sphere situated in the center of the case which can be rotated, and the massive, faux antenna can be detached from the case itself and used as a stylus pen for the iPhone screen.

    Earlier this week, I saw this post from @GrowlVoice: As of today, Google has officially shut off GrowlVoice's access to Google Voice as part of their integration of Google Voice into Hangouts. Google has also shut off 3rd-party access to Google Voice VoIP, and it seems that the writing is on the wall for Google Voice as a standalone product in any form. I have a Google Voice number that I really like and wanted to keep, so I decided I wanted to port it out of Google Voice and onto my Verizon iPhone. I wasn't even sure this was possible since Google Voice isn't really a cell phone provider…

    With Apple's earnings report slated for next Wednesday, all eyes will be focused on how many iPhones the company sold during the quarter gone by. As the prime source of Apple's quarterly revenue and profits, iPhone sales are often looked at as a barometer for the company's financial health. That said, the consensus from analysts is that iPhone sales during the second fiscal quarter of 2014 will check in at 38.19 million units.

    Since Apple doesn’t allow developers to charge additional money for app upgrades, their hands are tied when it comes to deciding how to handle significant changes to an app. Developers can either bite the bullet and just release an upgrade without earning any additional money from those who already purchased the app, or they can make it a completely new app such that even those who had purchased the old app now have to buy it again if they want it. Neither of these are great choices for developers who want to earn money for their time and effort and attempt to keep existing customers…

    Douglas
    26 Mar 2014 | 11:33 am
    Today I found a video showing a quick way to hide Stock Apple apps on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 7.1 firmware. You do not need to be jailbroken for this to work, however, the apps will come back after powering off your device and turning it back on. Follow the steps carefully and you should be able to hide the icons you want (temporarily). If you want to hide stock apps without them coming back, jailbreak your device and install “Poof”. This allows you to hide stock apps without coming back. Video Screenshots

Search Cydia for “Clear Background Apps” and install. Then just double click your home button and when the multitasking screen appears just tap the broom icon at the top. Depending on how many apps you have open, it might take a few seconds. Soon all your apps will be closed. This app is free and has no settings to configure. Screenshots Video

This hack does this by allowing you to swipe to delete clocks under the World Clock tab in your Clocks app. Very simple and free hack found in Cydia. One big issue I have is that implementing this hack removes original features. I never like when features are removed. This removes the original edit button which also removes the ability to reorder the clocks. Can’t we have our cake and eat it too? So an update to this hack with keeping the original features would be…

    Vario-Edge is composed of two pieces: a TPU bumper, and the stand mechanism, located south of center on the back. By definition, a bumper is a simple style of case, but this one shows some nice attention to detail. The button coverage is great, for example, with the volume and Sleep/Wake buttons clicking perfectly beneath the rubber. Four molded depressions on either side help improve grip, and the case curls around both the front and back of…

It's set to the song Gigantic by the Pixies, the ad highlights the iPhone 5s' utility with several kinds of musical instruments and vocals, as a connected controller for lighting, gaming, and rocket launching, for slow motion video, videography, live translation, blood pressure measurement, and finishes with the line — "You're more powerful than you think". It's a good ad, not as intense as Verse and a lot more fun. It's the kind of ad that once again shows people what's possible with the iPhone and with App Store apps. It's the kind…

  • Why Tim Cook narrated Apple's new environmental video, Better

    Rene Ritchie
    22 Apr 2014 | 5:28 pm
    Apple recently launched a new, environmentally focused video called "Better" and what's more — it was narrated by their CEO, Tim Cook. That, having a high ranking executive voice-over a video, marketing or corporate, isn't common for Apple. Steve Jobs, famously, recorded the voice over for the now-iconic "Think Different" ad but ultimately went with Richard Dreyfuss as narrator. So, why Tim Cook? My best guess as to why Tim Cook narrated the "Better" video is because it speaks to Apple's core values, and speaking to Apple's core values is both deeply important to Tim Cook, and how he's been…

  • Apple vs Samsung, Day 10: the home stretch

    23 Apr 2014 | 12:15 am
    The biggest news in today's Apple vs Samsung patent trial was the previously-reported revelation of a secret deal between Google and Samsung in which the search and advertising giant not only agreed to indemnify Samsung if it lost on two of the patent claims in this trial, but that Google -- not Samsung -- was to "direct and control" litigation and defense on Samsung's behalf. The revelation, which Samsung had previously denied in court, will be used to diminish the Samsung claim that the case is really about Android....

    A new Apple ad premiered tonight on Disney-owned ABC, called "Powerful." The 90-second spot (now available on Apple's YouTube channel) is the first this year to spotlight the iPhone 5s rather than the iPhone 5c, and features a band performing the Pixies song "Gigantic" while an array of apps -- beginning with musically-oriented ones, then branching off in other directions -- is shown.

    Among other updates issued on Tuesday, Apple has further updated the iOS versions of Pages, Numbers and Keynote -- formerly known collectively as iWork apps -- to version 2.2.1, just three weeks after its last update.

(and tons of other websites).  These attacks typically involve bad guys getting countless computers around the world to simultaneously and repeatedly target a server with reqeusts, so much so that the server can no longer respond to legitimate traffic, which often causes the server to shut down from overload.  Sometimes the criminals just want to be destructive.  Other times they demand a ransom, and if it is paid they typically then demand an…

  • New 'True Skate' Skatepark "Double Infinity" Coming this Thursday

    22 Apr 2014 | 11:38 am
    True Skate [$1.99] developer True Axis continues to make good on the promise they made back in December of four new skateparks coming to their awesome skateboard simulation game. The first new park, the Schoolyard, hit back in February, and offered a more street-style environment to skate around in. Then just last month the second new park called The Warehouse was released, and it offered a more skatepark-style level with plenty of space and different objects to hit. This week, the third park will be arriving. It's an outdoor concrete park called Double Infinity, named after the shapes of its…

  • Jet Car Stunts 2 Review – The boys will love this

    Eng Wei Jie
    22 Apr 2014 | 7:07 am
    Fast cars and fighter jets were a huge part of my childhood. Like many other young lads growing up, I had this fascination for anything sleek, beautiful and metal. I’d get to stop by the toy store with my mom every time I got good results on my test scores and she’d reward me with a shiny, metal plaything. And it was funny, because the way I remember playing with my toy cars was that I’d imagine they could soar through the air, flipping and spiralling around to create beautiful stunts. That was way back years ago. It’s 2014 now, and we still don’t have flying…

  • Spirit Runner Review – Keep running, and never look back

    Spirit Runner touts itself as the “first true survial runner”. As a result, I had high hopes and expectations when I first launched the app, hoping to be greeted by what would potentially be the new addiction of my life. And yet how wrong I was. I just can’t seem to see what is so unique about Spirit Runner. Spirit Runner is your stereotypical endless running classic. Users take control of an islander, running across the sea on sand patches in the hopes of reaching an island located right across his land. Of course, he never gets there. Controls take the form of swipes…

    I’ve always found it hard to take time out of my busy schedule to teach the young ones at home about math. No, I’ve actually found it harder to get the tots to sit still and listen. And then something like Counting Together! comes along, making the whole process so much easier. I must say that educational games are getting really creative nowadays. Even as an adult, I have trouble focusing in meetings or group discussions where I often find myself fidgeting instead of listening to the boring content. So one cannot expect a 5 year old to just sit still like that and listen.

    I’m not a huge fan of word games, but every once in a while one catches my eye and sometimes they even make it onto this list.  I’m not sure what happened this week but I found three different word games to add to my collection of 10.  SpellBounders manages to make the concept of Scrabble like games fun.  Instead of trying to build up your score you use the points you earn from spelling words to demolish your opponent’s hit points, and besides having cool skills that you can execute you can even use your foe’s words against them.  Cross Wars, on the other hand, tests your skill in…

    The Flappy clone craze is still in full swing, with what feels like 15% to 20% of new releases falling under this category.  That may be a bit of a stretch, but they’re definitely everywhere so I’ve decided to bring my own suggestion to the table this week.  Happy Matchy Bird is a nice variant of the genre that’s actually addictive from my opinion.  Instead of controlling the bird you actually open up the pillars for it by matching 3 jewels together to make a gap for your feathered friend to fly through.  For those not at all interested in this style of game, maybe you’d prefer…

    There have been a decent number of zoo simulation games on the App Store, but they usually feel like a city builder with animals.  Disco Zoo offers a completely different experience as your focus is on acquiring the animals and you don’t have to worry about building extraneous structures or training critters to do anything.  It’s a freemium game, and I could see how one could easily get caught up in it and sink a bunch of money into buying coins or disco bux, but so far I’ve managed to put quite a bit of time into it without emptying my wallet.  This well balanced game play is…

    I don't have cable TV, so I'm always excited when Apple adds more channels to Apple TV. And those added today are the sorts of channels I might like to watch: History, A&E, and Lifetime. In all three cases, some of the content is free, and other content requires you to log in with the username and password that you use with your cable provider. My impression after checking them out is that there's a ton of free content available—more than I'd ever have time to watch. In some cases, there are only one- to four-minute clips from the various episodes, with the clips always being free.

  • Is Apple's Predicablility Responsible for Lackluster First Quarter Revenue Projections?

    22 Apr 2014 | 10:07 am
    Apple may be one of the most profitable, most valuable businesses in the world (at least among those not based on oil) but that doesn't mean investors don't want more. Apple's revenue for the first quarter of CY2014 will be released on Wednesday and are projected to be $43.6 billion with about $9.5 billion in profits. These would be terrific numbers for any company, but for Apple, they were flat compared to the same period last year, which itself was their first decrease in profits in a decade. This may be because Apple consumers are used to specific patterns. During the summer, Apple…

    23 Apr 2014 | 12:15 am
    The biggest news in today's Apple vs Samsung patent trial was the previously-reported revelation of a secret deal between Google and Samsung in which the search and advertising giant not only agreed to indemnify Samsung if it lost on two of the patent claims in this trial, but that Google -- not Samsung -- was to "direct and control" litigation and defense on Samsung's behalf. The revelation, which Samsung had previously denied in court, will be used to diminish the Samsung claim that the case is really about Android.

Caso says Apple has production targets of 5-6 million units, but believes the iWatch will “essentially replace the iPod in the consumer portion of AAPL’s product lineup” and will see lowered iPod sales as a result of customers choosing the iWatch instead. The note says the iPod is not expected to be updated this year.

  • iPhone J.D. is back ... I hope

    Jeff Richardson
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:05 pm
    On Thursday April 17th, criminals started a series of DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks on Typepad, the company that hosts iPhone J.D. (and tons of other websites).  These attacks typically involve bad guys getting countless computers around the world to simultaneously and repeatedly target a server with reqeusts, so much so that the server can no longer respond to legitimate traffic, which often causes the server to shut down from overload.  Sometimes the criminals just want to be destructive.  Other times they demand a ransom, and if it is paid they typically then demand an…

    It is a short work week, so here is a special Thursday edition of In the news.  I hope that you enjoy the long weekend! California attorney David Sparks reviews The Stump, an iPad stand that he really likes.  On Amazon for $24.95. Microsoft introduced a new subscription package this week that makes it a little cheaper to use Word for iPad.  For $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year, you can get Office 365 Personal, which includes copies of Office for a single PC or Mac plus the ability to use the Office apps including Word on a single iPad.  The account that used to be called Office 365 Home…
  • Review: Cloak -- automatic VPN for privacy on public Wi-Fi

    Jeff Richardson
    14 Apr 2014 | 10:05 pm
    When you use public Wi-Fi, such as the service provided in a hotel or in a coffee shop, it is possible for someone else on the same network to use hacker tools to intercept data going to and from your computer, iPhone or iPad.  This makes it possible for a bad guy to get your password as you are logging on to a site, or possibly even to read your confidential attorney-client communications.  Is this actually happening to you?  Unfortunately, there is no way to know, so all you can do is guard against it.  A good solution is to use VPN — a virtual private network — to encrypt the…

    If you read my review of Microsoft Word for iPad Thursday morning, then you missed an update that I posted in the afternoon after I had a somewhat critical crash when using the app in a deposition.  I'm still thrilled to have the Word for iPad app, but the next time that I just want to take notes in a meeting and don't need all of the bells and whistles of Word, I might just stick with Pages.  And now, the rest of the news of note from the past week. Speaking of Word for iPad, the folks who make the Niblstand — a useful iPad stand that also holds an Apple Wireless Keyboard (my…
  • Review: Microsoft Word for iPad

    Jeff Richardson
    9 Apr 2014 | 10:05 pm
    I've been using Word for iPad almost every day since it was released two weeks ago.  I really like it, and I've now used it enough to write a full review.  (I wrote a first look post while I was at ABA TECHSHOW two weeks ago.)  As a litigator who works with Microsoft Word documents throughout the day, it is incredibly useful to have a sophisticated and full-featured version of Word on my iPad.  Word for iPad has easily become one of the most important and useful apps on my iPad, and I suspect that many other attorneys will feel the same way.  The app has some limitations, and a…

  • Using Origami to design animation

    Jeremy
    22 Apr 2014 | 5:43 am
    Yesterday I mentioned that Facebook will be open-sourcing Pop, the awesome animation framework that powers Our Choice and Facebook Paper. But what about designers? While learning Objective-C and using Pop would be great, that’s a ton work. Well, designers, you are in luck. Origami is a tool that Facebook built on top of Apple’s Quartz Composer that makes designing incredible animations for apps relatively simple. Even better news? Once Pop comes out, your programmers won’t be complaining so much when you come up with that crazy animation because the Pop animation framework…

    Why is no one talking about this video? Not only is it a great summary of the magic behind Facebook’s Paper app but buried half-way into the 1.5 hour video is an incredible announcement: Facebook will soon be open-sourcing POP, the incredible animation framework that Push Pop Press originally developed to build Our Choice, and that Facebook used to build Paper. I have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Apple’s iOS dynamics framework is great but it is still really complex to accomplish some of the really cool gesture-based dynamic animations that POP makes easy. In The…

    Christain and I struggled making a good looking pixelated buffalo so we let my 10 year old brother Zach give it a shot. He came up with this in 10 minutes! I’m pleased to report that Apple has approved Buffalo Wings, our Flappy Bird replacement, and it is now available to download. While most people I’ve talked to have thought of Buffalo Wings as we do — a fun little family experiment — I know not everyone sees it that way so I thought I would talk a little bit about why we made a replacement for Flappy Bird. First, let’s get something straight: I hate clones I think…

    We just couldn’t resist. This phenomenon is way too interesting to not be part of it. Flappy Bird was the #1 free app on the App Store for weeks, getting tens of millions of downloads. Now that the game was taken down by it’s creator, millions of people are wondering how to experience the joy, heartache, and wonder that was Flappy Bird. The App Store Top 10 testifies to that fact. It’s now full of Flappy Bird clones. The problem? I couldn’t find one clone that I really liked. So, of course, we are going to make one. In one day. Our team needed a break from the regular…

Although the original Lytro, which can be found in Apple retail stores, had a unique square, the new Illum is designed more like a traditional camera. Like its predecessor, the Illum is a “light-field” camera that captures information about the angle from which light arrives, allowing the device to allow users to adjust the…

According to in-court reports from Re/code, a Google attorney James Maccoun presented testimony saying the company is contractually obliged to pay for the defense of certain patent claims made against Samsung. In a taped deposition, Maccoun read emails outlining Google’s Mobile Application Distribution Agreement (MADA) with Samsung. Aside from the financial aid, the numbers of which remain sealed, Google also agreed to take on the…
  • Apple Updates iWork Apps for the iOS Platform

    22 Apr 2014 | 8:38 pm
    Shortly after the recent release of iOS 7.1.1, Apple has issued updates to all iWork for iOS apps with unnamed stability and bug fixes. With the background changes applied to all three apps, Pages, Numbers and Keynote, the software reached version 2.2.1. It’s unknown what “stability improvements and bug fixes” the updates bring, though it can be speculated that the relatively quick turnaround since Apple’s last iWork refresh suggests the fixes may patch complications with the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability. The company revamped iOS, Mac and iCloud versions of iWork in early April.

    22 Apr 2014 | 8:26 pm
    According to the Industrial and Commercial Times from Taiwan, Apple’s larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 has been delayed and will launch in 2015. The report claims that the company is struggling with finding a sufficient battery that measures 2 mm or less to fit in the device’s “very thin” profile. The report also notes that Apple suppliers are referring to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 as the “iPhone Air,” which hasn’t been finalized as an official name for the device. If the claims are true, however, an iPhone Air would join Apple’s MacBook Air and the recently released iPad Air in carrying…

    Fast cars and fighter jets were a huge part of my childhood. Like many other young lads growing up, I had this fascination for anything sleek, beautiful and metal. I’d get to stop by the toy store with my mom every time I got good results on my test scores and she’d reward me with a shiny, metal plaything. And it was funny, because the way I remember playing with my toy cars was that I’d imagine they could soar through the air, flipping and spiralling around to create beautiful stunts. That was way back years ago. It’s 2014 now, and we still don’t have flying…

    Spirit Runner touts itself as the “first true survial runner”. As a result, I had high hopes and expectations when I first launched the app, hoping to be greeted by what would potentially be the new addiction of my life. And yet how wrong I was. I just can’t seem to see what is so unique about Spirit Runner. Spirit Runner is your stereotypical endless running classic. Users take control of an islander, running across the sea on sand patches in the hopes of reaching an island located right across his land. Of course, he never gets there. Controls take the form of swipes…

    I’ve always found it hard to take time out of my busy schedule to teach the young ones at home about math. No, I’ve actually found it harder to get the tots to sit still and listen. And then something like Counting Together! comes along, making the whole process so much easier. I must say that educational games are getting really creative nowadays. Even as an adult, I have trouble focusing in meetings or group discussions where I often find myself fidgeting instead of listening to the boring content. So one cannot expect a 5 year old to just sit still like that and listen.

It’s a great, funny story line accompanied by a stylish intro sequence, but is unfortunately not…
