Mac Government and Enterprise Sales Leap in 2Q 2010





MacvsPC

As noted by analyst Charlie Wolf of Needham & Company Monday, Mac government sales grew 200.8 percent year over year in the June quarter, well beyond the 12.1 percent growth seen by the rest of the PC market. In addition, the business market grew 49.8 percent during those three months, besting the market-wide 15.7 percent growth in enterprise sales.

Apple's best business sales came with very large companies, where Mac shipments improved 103 percent. Large businesses also bought 98.3 percent more Macs than the previous year.

Home Mac sales were also up 31.4 percent, besting the industrywide 25.2 percent growth. Despite the growth in business sales, the home market remains Apple's most important, accounting for 61.4 percent of all Mac shipments in the June quarter.

In all, Mac sales grew 31.5 percent year-over-year, ahead of the 20.9 percent growth seen by the entire PC market over 2009.

Lady Gaga to Take Part in New iPhone 4 Commercial?



photo_0It became known that Lady Gaga, the famous singer, has visited Apple’s 1-Infinite Loop Campus in Cupertino, California, where she was photographed behind the main building with the Apple’s staff. But what was the purpose of her visit? Do you have the same opinion as we, don’t you?

Now it is said that she was probably invited to make a new series of commercials for iPhone 4 about which we have already reported in May. There is also a possibility that she was invited for a small private concert, which Apple organizes from time to time? Nevertheless, soon we’ll know about the event in more details.

Play Xvid AVI Videos on iPhone and iPod Touch Right Now!



VerizoniPhone4Can not wait for the official release? Do you want to get CineXPlayer for iPad on your iPhone and iPod touch right now? For those of you who do not know, CineXPlayer is an iPad application that allows you to download Xvid AVI files using iTunes, so you can easily reproduce the format that Apple won’t. Because the developer has not invented version of the application for the iPhone, the hacker decided to do everything by himself.

It is a complete step by step tutorial on how to install it on your iPhone or iPod touch available here. You just need to jailbreak these devices, because the process involves SSH (SSH program for secure file sharing on the network) to access the iPhone, but it's worth it if you want to get it right now!

But before we start the list it is important to note that we chose the tablet devices that satisfied next criteria:

  1. No physical keyboard;
  2. Availability for purchase;
  3. The screen must be at least 5''.

iPhone 5 to Be Made of Liquid Metal, à la T-1000 from Terminator 2?



T1000Do you remember the robot called T-1000 Skynet made of liquid metal in the film Terminator 2? It seems that Steve Jobs decided to create devices of next generation using Liquidmetal Technologies, a California company from which Apple has recently acquired the exclusive rights for creation of liquid metal alloy products.

One of the best and most distinctive factors in all Apple products is how this company produces its own devices, the quality of production, as well as the materials used, which, undoubtedly, have first-class quality.

Now that Apple has the exclusive rights to create products of the liquid metal, we can assume that it has no plans to create a robot for the next Terminator movie, but probably will use it for such devices as iMac, iPad and iPhone of the next generation in order to be one step ahead of its competitors.

iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to Get Adobe Photoshop Express



PhotoshopExpressforiPadToday Adobe has announced a new Photoshop application for the devices based on iOS while giving a new image to its previous limited functional application Photoshop.com Mobile for the Apple iPhone. Now it has got a new name Adobe Photoshop Express. Here you’ll find a great number of new features for the iPad sporting the larger screen space, support for the device and improved user interface (UI).

Does it have pros and cons?

Yes! There is no support for the Retina Display of the new iPhone 4. It is quite disappointing for many users.

Here's what hackers say about new firmware iOS 4.0.1



Here's what hackers tweeted about new Apple firmwares 4.0.1 for iPhones and 3.1.2 for iPad:

DevTeam:

As with *any* new FW, jailbreakers + unlockers must avoid this upcoming 4.1 update until our tools are updated

3GS, ipt3G, iPhone4 users (regardless of current FW or JB status) should backup 4..0 SHSH blobs http://is.gd/dskh9 soon

MuscleNerd:

Obviously avoid today's 4.0.1 update until JB tools are updated. Luckily, no baseband change so ultrasn0w lives on :)

each FW version has unique blobs. But using http://is.gd/dskh9 you can get 4.0 blobs on PC while you stay at 3.1.2

Hah for those iPhone3G or ipt2g(non-MC) users at 4.1beta1: use redsn0w from 2 wks ago to JB http://is.gd/dstU3 :)

White iPhones Won't Be Available Until Mid July



500x_screen_shot_2010-06-23_at_2.10.47_pm

According to Apple’s official statement, you won’t get any white iPhones until the second half of July as they have proven more difficult to make than it was expected. The availability of the black models, which are found to be more popular, will not be affected.

Strange as it might seem, producing white equipment is indeed more challenging than the black one. The reason for it is the fact that making the black back of the glass requires an electroplating process, which creates a smooth look. Consequently, to make the back of the glass white you have to paint the case, which makes it quite challenging to create a smooth opaque surface. If the paint goes on too thick, it could be rather difficult to glue the glass on, as the glue might stick to the paint and it’s possible that in the course of time the paint will peel off the glass.

New iPhone's Gyroscope Was Added for Gaming



When Gizmodo showed new iPhone's prototype most of us stopped expecting from Jobs anything shocking on WWDC 2010. But he amazed us, and not only with new display's resolution, FaceTime function and 802.11n support, but also with gyroscope. Many developers instantly realized - this is a new breakthrough.

While conventional accelerometer measures linear acceleration as a change of direction apart a change in velocity, a gyroscope measures angular acceleration, or in other words, a change in both direction and velocity at the same time. Thus the device can sense its rotation while ignoring hand jitters and linear movements, which is impossible for accelerometer.
