iCloud to Auto-Resolve Sync Conflicts





syncconflict

John Gruber at Daring Fireball claims that Apple’s iCloud service will be able to solve conflicts with data automatically by determining the correct option. Now MobileMe forces users to solve conflicts themselves. On The Talk Show with Dan Benjamin he’s shared his opinion on how iCloud will deal with sync conflicts:

In iCloud, I believe you will never be presented with [a sync conflict] dialog, no matter how much has changed in one of the instances while it was "offline". The server-side iCloud, when there seemingly is a conflict, will make a decision and it will decide which one is the best (in Apple's terms the "truth"). That is what Steve Jobs means when he says "The Truth is in the Cloud." iTunes will decide which one is right and that's it. iCloud will push that right one to any device that has this account that has a different version.

'Wi-Fi Sync' App Developer Accuses Apple in Stealing His Idea



greghughes

Last year we told about Greg Hughes, who created the "Wi-Fi Sync" app, which allows to synchronize your iOS-device with iTunes wirelessly. After Apple's rejection the developer sent it to the Cydia Store instead. Since then the app was sold over 50,000 times. But as you know, this week Apple unveiled that it made Wi-Fi Synchronization with iTunes an inbuilt feature in iOS5. In response Hughes decided to accuse the company in ripping his work.

FaceTime will be available via 3G in iOS 5



facetime-3g

FaceTime videocalls are for Wi-Fi right now. And as you might remember we were able to use FaceTime over 3G only after installing a jailbreak tweak utility. Now Apple decided to enable 3G support in iOS 5. However it will be up to carriers to allow it or not. Guess what AT&T will do? We shall see.

Apple Files Lawsuit Against Kid Who Sold White iPhone 4 Parts



WhiteiPhone4Now

A few months ago we told you about the teenager, Fei Lam, whose site, WhiteiPhone4Now.com had been forced to shut down. He managed to sell $130,000 worth of the white iPhone 4 parts. And only yesterday Apple decided to file a lawsuit against Lam and his parents. The suit claims that the site led to the infringement and dilution of Apple’s trademarks and that it was involved in deceptive practices through selling the iPhone conversion kits. Curiously, Apple has also filed a voluntary dismissal of the lawsuit, which may mean that a settlement has been reached, although the request for dismissal without prejudice may mean that Apple could come after Lim again at a later date.

Samsung Will Hand Over Prototypes of Phones and Tablets to Apple



samsung

The legal battle between Apple and Samsung — sued for allegedly copying the “look and feel” of the iPhone and iOS with its Galaxy devices — it’s far from over. Apple  is now asking Samsung to hand over prototypes of unreleased phones and tablets for legal scrutiny. With the federal court ruling that Samsung will have to send these units to Apple’s legal team, Samsung is being forced to send the unreleased Droid Charge, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 to Apple, though the other two devices mentioned, the Infuse 4G and Galaxy S 2, have already been released publicly in the United Kingdom and United States, respectively.

iPad Cannibalization Of PC Market Slows



ipad

The iPad’s cannibalization of the PC market may have slowed. New purchasers of the iPad are less likely to have foregone purchasing a PC. It found that of those who had purchased the iPad over the holiday season, 12% would have decided against a PC purchase when they bought an iPad. This is a 2% drop from the 14% of those decided against a PC amongst those who had owned their iPad for 6 months or more. Netbooks were saved the most, with iPad cannibalization falling by 50%, which actually led the netbook market to grow by 21% between September 2010 and March 2011. The report contradicts what analysts were calling the “iPad effect” in the first quarter of 2011 when US PC sales fell 10.7%.
