A new iOS app helps you create square videos with special effects and captions, designed for sharing on social media.
If this is legit he about to get Tracy Morgan money.
I think Apple will cave at the end of the day.
Apple vs the FBI is the biggest story of 2016 and Apple is not willing to make an “FBiOS”. Plus, The Apple TV could be your next cable box.
Looks so much better than the Ashton Kutcher movie that bombed.

Apple’s darkest secrets get exposed and when it comes to the world’s most valuable company you must “Think evil”.

First and foremost these punks are robbing women so they are the lowest scum on earth. Hopefully one of these pricks will be surprised by some woman’s boyfriend and beaten to a pulp and that will start stem these so-called “Apple Pickers” activities.
This is a very interesting article and should be read by poor parents who stick gadgets in the faces of their kids before they can even walk.
As access to devices has spread, children in poorer families are spending considerably more time than children from more well-off families using their television and gadgets to watch shows and videos, play games and connect on social networking sites, studies show.
Another freakin’ amazing technological advance. Who needs a tour guide?
If would be dope if Jay Z sent one to Beyonce.
The update is free for people who already own the popular app (which itself is on sale for $1 this weekend), though you’ll have to buy T-Pain credits to leave the 45 second clips (they can be acapella “freestyles” or ditties on top of some non-T-Pain beats).
Insanley Great Mac:
This is weird. Touching the lower left corner of the iPhone 4 consistently drops calls. I’ve been testing this all night and here’s a replication on video. The test was performed four times, but it could have been 40. Whether the palm of the and, should, neck, or any body part results in quickly dropping the call. This does not appear to affect the iPhone 3GS, which was tested with the iPhone 4.

The phones are not radically different from earlier versions, but do offer several new features.
According to The Street, the BlackBerry Bold 9650 is “a candy bar smartphone with a 3.2-megapixel camera, a ‘large, high-resolution screen, GPS and Wi-Fi (802.11b/g). It’s made to work as either a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS or dual-band CDMA/EV-DO (Rev A) phone.'”

All of us use laptops and smartphones now. The question has arisen lately: is there room for a third category of device in the middle?
The new device will have to be far better than the laptop and smartphone at doing important things: browsing the Web, doing e-mail, enjoying and sharing photographs, watching videos, enjoying your music collection, playing games, reading e-books. Otherwise, “it has no reason for being.”
Apple’s answer: the iPad.
It looks like, well, a big iPhone, pretty much as anticipated.
A regular feature of this blog will be finding the coolest and interesting iPhone Apps on the planet. Here we have another that actually can drive your car. More information below:
iDriver is an iPhone application to remote control a car. Go to http://www.spiritofberlin.eu for more information on “Spirit of Berlin”, a completely autonomous vehicle by the Freie Universität Berlin. It is equipped with various sensors and a drive-by-wire system for unmanned driving. iDriver is an addon to remote control the car with an iPhone. Powered by Appirion UG (http://www.appirion.com).
How’d they do that?
This is me and my buddies using “Nude It” for the first time. It works only on the iPhone 3GS and is not yet available in the US, BUT you can download a free trial version at http://www.whoisthebaldguy.com
I must say these guys were good.
Once again TMZ is on the hunt and they are the first to produce a picture of Steve Jobs since his extended medical leave. Ironically taken with a IPhone.
TMZ obtained this photo of the Apple co-founder leaving company headquarters in Cupertino, California around 3:00 PM today.
The guy who needs this is seriously lacking in the lovemaking dept.
What is Passion?
Ever wondered if how well you compared to other people during sex, well now you can with Passion. This iPhone application measures how well you perform during sex, and gives you a rating from 0 to 10, 10 being the highest. Then you can go online and see how well you did against the rest of the world.
Sorting through the 6,000+ games in the iTunes App store one by one is a tedious and frustrating process. With literally every single genre of game represented, lite or full versions offered and thousands of copycat titles, who has the time to play them all? Well, not me. I actually have a life. I have played a lot of the games in the App store, though and lucky for you I’ve made a list. These games are the cream of the crop, according to yours truly. Here is my “Top 7 iPhone Games You Need To Play.” Why 7? Because I said so. Share with us what some of your favorite iPhone games ar
C’mon folks, this sh*t is major reckless. According to a panel we attended last month, no iPhone app can be approved without going throught the appropriate screening process by Apple, so the question begs to be asked, who the f*ck approved this and why isn’t their head rolling as we speak? America sure does have a way with devouring her young.
Looks like Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster’s second estimate of Apple’s weekend iPhone sales underestimated demand just as badly as his first. Apple didn’t sell 500,000 units of its new iPhone 3GS over the weekend, as Munster first predicted. Nor did it sell 750,000 units as he said in a research note this morning. It sold over one million. Moreover, downloads of the company’s new iPhone 3.0 software, launched last Wednesday, have already reached six million.
“Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs said a press release today. “With over 50,000 applications available from Apple’s revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever.”
An impressive showing. Particularly considering all the factors that could slow sales: The souring economy, competition from the Palm (PALM) Pre, the BlackBerry Storm, the T-Mobile G1 and, of course, the iPhone itself. After all, there is now a $99 iPhone on the market. Beyond this, there’s the fact that the 3GS was launched in eight countries. The 3G debuted in 21.
Interestingly, this is the first time we’ve seen Jobs quoted in an Apple release in some time now. As best I can tell, the last quote attributed to him was in a Jan. 21, 2009, earnings release. Since then, Apple (AAPL) has issued 22 more press releases. This, the 22nd, is the first in which it is Jobs, and not COO Tim Cook or Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, who is quoted. Does this mean he’s officially back at work following his medical leave? I’ve put that question to Apple and will update if I hear back.
Sure its great that Apple lowered the price on the basic 8G model to $99 making the cool to own iPhone more affordable for your average starving musician. But the real news…
is the new iPhone 3G S which, in addition to a storage increase, digital compass, faster connection speeds, and the nifty new iPhone 3.0 operating system, adds a number of new imaging and video features that should have pocket camcorder manufacturers like Flip feeling nervous.
The HD mini-camcoders leave the iPhone in the dust when it comes to resolution. But the new iPhone’s editing and sharing features beat anything offered in the current crop of pocket camcorders. And not only can you do basic edits on the iPhone 3G S without a computer, but you can also upload videos to YouTube or MobileMe and share them via e-mail or multi-media text messaging.
Now artists, music journalists and fans can pull out their iPhone 3G S, grab a little concert or backstage footage, edit out the drummer giving his friend the finger and have it up on the web in seconds without a computer or internet connection.
Apple officially unveiled their new iPhone 3GS today, at the company’s annual developers conference. Making its debut in stores on June 19th, the iPhone 3G S offers a variety of features iPhone enthusiasts have been craving for. Highlights include: a faster processor that runs applications at twice the current speed, auto-focus 3MP camera, video feature, voice control, 9 hours of web surfing battery life, and digital compass amongst many other features. Available in two different colorways (black or white), the iPhone 3GS will come in a 16 GB version running for $199 and 32 GB version for $299. Further information regarding the upgrade can be found via the official Apple website.
DoubleTwist simplifies media management, whether you want to sync to your mobile device, share it with friends, or upload it to YouTube, Flickr, or Facebook. It’s so easy your grandparents could use it. The idea behind doubleTwist is simple, and is probably summed up best by the narrator of the demo video:
Hulu is in the process of developing an app for Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone and iPod touch, we have learned from a plugged-in industry executive. The app is coming soon (within a few months) and is “badass” — as excellent as Hulu’s Web site. Video will work over both wi-fi and 3G, we’re told.
It won’t be the first Web video app for the iPhone — CBS’s TV.com app is on the market, as are Joost, i.TV and several others — but it could be the best. Hulu’s tech and design teams have demonstrated themselves as the best in the Web video industry, as everyone is now trying to emulate them. One hurdle, we assume: Because of Hulu’s streaming architecture, it might not be possible to download videos to watch later, such as on the subway or an airplane.
Why would Apple and AT&T approve this app, which will use up a lot of bandwidth and compete with Apple’s iTunes video store? Because it will help sell iPhones, iPod touches, and AT&T subscriptions. And that’s the whole point of the App Store. (And if we were Hulu, we’d offer Apple and/or AT&T an ad revenue-sharing deal, too.)
Mobile video has not taken off yet, mainly because most services — offered by carriers — are too expensive, or look terrible. Just over 3% of mobile subscribers watch video on their phones, according to comScore. An iPhone Hulu app, on the other hand, could be very popular.
We have asked Hulu for comment and will update if we hear back.
Diddy x iPhone. I swear, Diddy should get an award for his marketing abilities with the internet and today’s technology. That guy is a master at the Twitter game much like I am the master of NBA 2K9 on the PS3. Well now Diddy is jumping on the iPhone app tactic to push his upcoming album “Last Train to Paris.”
The app is pretty simple. You just take a photo of yourself, write a quick message on the app and send it. Your photo and message then becomes part of a bigger train collage where you can view other people’s photos and messages. Alright! LET’S GO PEOPLE!!! (the twitter fam will get it). Props to Clyde for heads up. He always brings the heat.
We know your pain, Vuzix users. You hop on the subway just trying to enjoy a little in-your-face action before the workday begins, and within minutes the accusations and stereotypes start flying. “Look, it’s Geordi La Forge!” “LeVar Burton, what’s good?!” “Can I try my Zune on that?” Depressing, really.
Unfortunately for you, Vuzix’s latest cable will not make any of that any more sufferable, though it will enable you to use your existing eyewear with Apple’s iPhone and enjoy the spoils of side-by-side, interlaced and anaglyph 3D content. Said cable will be bundled in with the company’s iWear AV230XL, though existing customers will definitely want to snag the standalone version for $39.95. The full release is after the break.

SAN FRANCISCO — Skype, the Internet calling service that has more than 400 million users around the world, is aggressively moving onto mobile phones.
The Luxembourg-based company, a division of eBay, plans to announce on Tuesday that it will make its free software available immediately for Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch and, beginning in May, for various BlackBerry phones, made by Research in Motion.
Other companies have already made software for those phones that works with Skype, but it does not offer all of the service’s features.
As with Skype on the computer, users of Skype on mobile phones can make calls and send instant messages to other Skype users free, and they pay lower rates than the phone companies would charge when they use Skype to call landlines or other mobile phones. Continue reading
(CNET) — AT&T may be getting ready to offer the iPhone 3G at a very expensive yet no-commitment price.
BoyGeniusReport.com has a report out Wednesday that AT&T plans to offer iPhone 3Gs at $599 or $699 without requiring the customer to sign a new two-year agreement, starting next week.
When the iPhone 3G launched last year, AT&T said it would offer such an option, but never pulled the trigger.
An AT&T representative declined to comment on the report.
The move would seem designed to rid AT&T of iPhone inventory ahead of the launch of a new product later this summer, as most of us are expecting.
Apple didn’t allude to any new hardware during its iPhone 3.0 event on Tuesday, but there have been a few signs, and the company has noted that iPhone releases seem to be falling into a yearly schedule around June or July.
iPhones sales soared after Apple and AT&T cut the starting price to $199 last year, but there are definitely some people who would like an iPhone free from AT&T and a two-year commitment to paying a monthly wireless bill, even if it costs them more up front. Continue reading
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or perhaps in Iraq), you’ve been hearing about the release of a little low-budget indie art film called ‘Watchmen.’ Based on the twelve-issue comic book by renowned comic writer Alan Moore — and now available in all-in-one form as a graphic novel – ‘Watchmen’ is one of the most beloved franchises in all of comic-dom. And today, Warner Brothers announced that it will be publishing — in addition to ‘Watchmen: End is Nigh’ for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 — an online, multiplayer game for iPhone called ‘Watchmen: Justice Is Coming.’
Described as a “multiplayer online adventure fighting game,” ‘Justice’ lets you and thousands of other characters play at the same time in one virtual world, whose missions, areas and secrets are constantly being updated by the developers. While it’s not quite as advanced as something like ‘World of Warcraft‘ (the most popular, massively-multiplayer game ever), users can chat with and battle other characters as they move through the adventure. Players can even customize their avatars’ looks and skills before hitting the mean streets of Manhattan.
Another reason to buy the iPhone, so you can sound JUST like T-Pain. Mr. Pain is teaming up with the famed Auto-Tune designer Antares to develop an iPhone app that lets you speak and record your voice with the signature Auto-Tune sound.
According to the LA Times, the app won’t let you alter your voice on actual phone calls but instead you will be able to record your Auto-Tuned voice over the beats of T-Pain and listen to them on your iPhone. Under the deal with Antares, T-Pain will do the majority of marketing and publicity for the app and will receive an undisclosed royalty for each app sold. More details to come as the deal continues to develop.
T-Pain’s other business deals included a Pepsi ad campaign and a promotional deal with auto manufacturer Hyundai.
Well I guess this is supposed to quell the rumors about his health, but they will persist until he makes a public appearance and announces absolutely nothing. In the meantime get him a steak with some Bovine Hormones in it.
NEW YORK – Apple Inc. founder and , looking to quell rumors about his health, said Monday his doctors have discovered a hormonal imbalance that has been causing his weight loss.
Jobs, 54, said he will undergo a “relatively simple” treatment and will remain as head of.
“A hormone imbalance … has been ‘robbing’ me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy,” Jobs said in a public letter, adding, “Sophisticated blood tests have confirmed this diagnosis.”
Speculation about his health have intensified since Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple said in December that Jobs would not be making his annual keynote address tomorrow in San Francisco at the. Apple said this year’s conference will be its last, with Phil Schiller, an executive, giving the company’s presentation.
is run by the company IDG, and Apple has said it no longer wanted to be committed to releasing new products at another company’s trade show — and that it didn’t see reason to have its CEO speak at a conference it wouldn’t be attending in the future.
Adding to the speculation, Jobs, who survived pancreatic cancer, has appeared increasingly gaunt at public appearances.
In his statement Monday, Jobs said, “The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I’ve already begun treatment.”
He added, “Just like I didn’t lose this much weight and body mass in a week or a month, my doctors expect it will take me until late this Spring to regain it.”
The company’s board released a statement separately, saying, “Apple is very lucky to have Steve as its leader and CEO, and he deserves our complete and unwavering support during his recuperation. He most certainly has that from Apple and its Board.”

Rumors had been flying for months that retail juggernaut Walmart would be selling iPhones in its US stores. That rumor had all but been confirmed when leaked memos revealed that sales would begin on December 28. Today, Walmart officially confirmed that Sunday, December 28 was the day that sales of Apple’s iconic smartphone would begin.
Walmart will sell the 8GB iPhone for $197, and 16GB models will sell for $297. All phones will still require a two-year contract with AT&T. “We are delighted to bring customers this ground-breaking mobile technology,” Gary Severson, Walmart’s senior vice president of entertainment, said in a statement. “Our electronics associates have been preparing for many weeks for the arrival of iPhone 3G. We are excited to now help new customers learn more about the features and services that make the iPhone unique.”
Though it had been rumored that Walmart would sell a 4GB iPhone for $99 (though, oddly, not for $97), the company’s announcement makes no mention of that model or any other model at a lower price point. Continue reading
With news reports coming out this week that Apple has surpassed Google in market valuation, this phone needs to be a big hit really fast.
The review below does not support this theory and Google will probably make the proper adjustments before its supposed launch in the Fall but do you think people will flock to the Android?

Will it be a hit? It’s hard to tell much from the supposed spy photos we’ve seen floating around on the Web, like the one to the right.
But someone who’s actually seen the gadget — similar, if not identical to the one in the photo — tells us that both the hardware (from handset-maker HTC) and Google’s Android software suffer from a similar problem: They’re technically powerful but not as elegant as Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone and OS X.
Specifically, the phone — apparently a hot item to show off in Google’s cafeterias these days — is big and bulky, and not as sleek as the iPhone. And Android, while extremely powerful, has a less-elegant, less-user-friendly interface than the iPhone.
