Apple Helps Preserve Cherokee Language By Adding it to iOS



cherokee language

Associated Press reports that Apple has worked with the Cherokee tribe to add their language to iOS and help to preserve it.

"Tribal officials first contacted Apple about getting Cherokee on the iPhone three years ago. It seemed like a long shot, as the devices support only 50 of the thousands of languages worldwide, and none were American Indian tongues. But Apple's reputation for innovation gave the tribe hope", - the report said.

This year support of the language was included into iOS 4.1.

Steve Jobs Named 'Financial Times' Person of the Year



person of the year

Well-known British newspaper Financial Times recently announced that Apple CEO Steve Jobs was selected its "Person of the Year" for 2010.

A rebuttal of F. Scott Fitzgerald's much-quoted aphorism that there are no second acts in American life does not come more decisively than this. When Steven Paul Jobs first hit the headlines, he was younger even than Mark Zuckerberg is now. Long before it was cool to be a nerd, his formative role in popularising the personal computer made him the tech industry's first rock star .

Apple's next-gen iPad to get iPod touch-like back, wide-range speaker



ipad_2_case

Japanese blog MacOtakara published a new portion of rumors concerning Apple’s iPad 2. It claims that the second-generation iPad will have a smaller bezel, a flat back panel and a wide-range speaker. These changes might be caused by a couple of criticisms of the original iPad design. The outer plastic bezel surrounding the LCD screen of the iPad was seen as large by some. Thus, the forthcoming iPad will be 3mm smaller; reportedly measuring 239mm by 186mm. LCD screen on the next-generation iPad will stay the same size. Back of the iPad is reported to be "flat like an iPod Touch". It will allow the new iPad to sit flat on a desk surface. The current iPad has a rounded back. The Ambient Light Sensor will be moved to the "upper center of the rear panel and has a new 3mm slim hole". According to rumors, production of the new iPad has already begun and it will probably start shipping in the mid of January.
