Future bus station





11

Next year in Florence users will experience new bus stations with an innovative touchscreen. The project is called EyeStop and is being conducted by the team of Professor Carlo Ratti.

Users will be able to obtain real-time information on weather conditions, urban traffic, waiting time for public transport. Bus stations will be able to interact with mobile phones! And this is not all: With a simple and intuitive graphic passengers can also check e-mail and share information. The entire system will be powered by solar energy and be able to communicate with the iPhone.

AT&T Vs Pre: Internal Document



att-pre

This is an internal document from the iPhone carrier exposing the Palm phone for what it really is :)

For example, the iPhone sports a  "Thinner, lighter, bigger screen, metal and glass design" while the Pre is "Available in Black only; plastic casing.". Pre has "Limited free Wi-Fi access" because they don't get to use AT&T Hotpots. And so on :)

Disconnect your iPod, make sure the SIM card is inserted correctly



9to5Mac has found a string within iTunes with the following statement: "Disconnect your iPod, make sure the SIM card is inserted correctly [...]". Is this a joke, mistake or Apple will create an iPod 3 with a SIM card inside to connect to the Internet?

I bet this is a mistake. But who knows..

Gmap v1.2 [AppStore]



gmap

This app didn't work very well in the past. Today has been updated up to version 1.2, which adds numerous bug fixes and real-time turn tracking. It does indeed provide turn-by-turn directions (distance countdown to each turn) by way of GPS. Local points of interest (Food, Fuel, etc.) can be found, addresses can be searched, routes can be edited, detours added, and types of roads can be avoided (highways, toll roads, etc.). If a turn is missed, the route is recalculated. By having actual maps stored on the device itself, it does not require the use of an active internet connection to pull mapping data (like Google Maps).

The 800-900 MB applications each cost $19.99 and carry regional maps for the Western and Eastern halves of the United States (Europe coming soon, some time in March).

iChange car concept



dwn_ichange_front_1

The Rinspeed iChange is an electric car concept promising 0-60 in four seconds along with a transforming rear end that can create two extra seats. And an iPhone controls everything but the driving parts. The dash features an iPhone dock, and as you can see, there really aren't many other buttons—heck, there's not even a slot for the key. So the iPhone is used to turn on the car, control the Harman/Kardon infotainment system with GPS navigation, and, we believe, even handle the air conditioning complete with vents.

Las Vegas: regulators warn of card-counting iPhone app



5aces

Nevada gambling regulators have warned casinos about a card-counting program for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch that can illegally help players beat the house in blackjack. Card counting by players is not illegal in Nevada but using a device to count cards is considered a felony. The Nevada Gaming Control Board warned casinos of the program last week. Nevada learned of the program from California gambling regulators who said officials at an Indian casino found customers using it. But board member Randy Sayre says the agency hasn't received any reports of the program being used in Nevada. Card counting can help blackjack players determine when they are likely to win a hand and should adjust their bets.

Saved from a ticket by an iPhone



TUAW reader Paul tells a nice story, how his iPhone helped him to avoid getting the ticket. He was driving on a Midwestern road covered with blowing snow. He slowed down for a car stopped on the side of the road, but the car behind him hit his rear bumper, doing damage to both cars.

The officer who arrived to investigate asked Paul for his insurance card. Of course, that was when Paul realized it had expired the month before, and he didn't have the latest card in his wallet. The officer said it would be $200 for not being able to prove insurance coverage, and since Paul didn't have the cash it meant putting his license up for bond.

While the officer was doing the paperwork, Paul used his iPhone to log into his Geico Insurance account via the web. He was able to request a PDF copy of his card, which was emailed to his iPhone; then he displayed it to the officer. Happily, the deputy accepted the card as proof of insurance and did not issue the citation.

Most police agencies wouldn't be so open to the idea of looking at a downloaded document, but in this case, at least, it is yet another reason to love the iPhone.
