The share of Android is diminishing, as Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphones are delivering hardly any impressions.

Ad firm Velti studied the mobile advertising market of Apple and Android, comparing figures of May 2013 to findings from 2012. The share ofCupertinocompany grew by 5%, from 59% to 64%.

New iPhone 5S Photos: Dual-LED Flash, 1GB RAM, A7 Chip



New photos allegedly of the iPhone 5S clearly shows it's internal components, a dual-LED flash, and possibly a new A7 chip, reports MacRumors. The site received the photos below as follow up to photos previously posted which showed the interior and rear exterior of the upcoming device.

As seen in one photo, the chip carries an Apple model number of APL0698, suggesting that this is indeed intended to be branded as an A7 chip rather than a modification on the A6 chip found in the iPhone 5. The original A6 chip carried a model number of APL0598, with the A6X found in the fourth-generation iPad carrying an APL5598 model number, demonstrating how Apple varies the first digit for members of a given A-series family and increments the second digit when transitioning to a new family.

Other features noticeable include 1GB of Elpida DRAM, a dual-LED flash, and a main chip identifier of K1A0062. Previous chips had a number that started with N. It's suggested that perhaps this chip was produced by TSMC instead of Samsung.

MacRumors was also able to determine that the device was assembled in December 2012 making it a very early prototype.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5S this fall.

Take a look at the photos below for more details!

Ashton Kutcher’s ‘jOBS’ biopic to open nationwide on August 16th



The Ashton Kutcher led JOBS biopic will debut on August 17th according to a press release.

Open Road Films will release JOBS – the highly anticipated film chronicling the story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout to one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century – nationwide on August 16, 2013. JOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001. The film plunges into the depths of his character, creating an intense dialogue-driven story that is as much a sweeping epic as it is an immensely personal portrait of Steve Jobs’ life. Directed by Joshua Michael Stern, written by Matthew Whiteley, JOBS was shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer Russell Carpenter and produced by Mark Hulme. JOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
