iOS 3rd Most Popular Platform after Windows and Mac



093508-ios_linux_andrdoid

iOS has left Linux behind to become the 3rd most popular platform with Internet access. Standing at 1,1%, unsurprisingly, iOS is still losing to Mac OS X with its 5% share and lagging behind the all-encompassing Windows’ 91,3%. Still, for a mobile OS, this is an impressive score, especially considering that Linux’s share is 0,85% while Android’s is just 0,2%.

Astonishing Figures from Steve Jobs



jobs_figures

Steve Jobs sticks to his style, and so Apple’s Special Event revealed to us some quite interesting figures. First of all, the impressive number of all iOS devices sold to this day – it’s 120,000,000. Astonishingly, it took Apple 3 years (from June’07 to June’10) to reach 100,000,000, and the last 20,000,000 came in just 3 months. Jobs also boasted that Apple were activating 230,000 new devices per day.

Future iPads: You Want A Camera With That?



ipad

Steve Jobs might announce something yesterday he wasn’t supposed to. At yesterday’s event, Jobs indicated that iOS 4.2 would include all of the features included in versions 4.0 and 4.1 for the iPhone. When the iPad’s iOS is updated this November to version 4.2 it will be the first significant upgrade for the device since it debuted last spring.

Would that include HDR photography? If so, this would mean that at some point the iPad will be getting a camera. Perhaps Jobs was simply lost in the moment and meant nothing with his comment. But let’s be honest: Would anyone be surprised to hear that the iPad is getting a camera?

Users will be able to watch live todays Apple 2010 fall event (updated)



apple-event

Here are the latest news from Apple PR - they will live broadcast their event today:

Apple will broadcast its September 1 event online using Apple’s industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming, which is based on open standards. Viewing requires either a Mac running Safari on Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard, an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad. The live broadcast will begin at 10:00 a.m. PDT on September 1, 2010 at www.apple.com.

For people whose machines don’t match Apple’s requirements there will be a lot of re-streaming the event on Ustream and Justin.tv using Flash.

The other workaround is to use Open Source Video Player VLC and enter Apple's livestream URL in the streaming portion:

Concept: Magic iRemote for iOS Apple TV/iTV



1

Dan Wineman’s concept, above, for an iOS-powered Apple TV/iTV remote that’s essentially an iPod touch without the screen, is interesting. Same accelerometer/gyro, same multitouch, same home button.

Such remote is gesture-based. Tap to pause, swipe left to rewind, swipe right to fast-forward. Slide up or down to adjust volume. Home key to exit to the menu, which you navigate by flicking and tapping.

John Gruber still isn’t sure if any intermediated device could work (though given you’ll be sitting 10 feet away, one certainly will have to). But the idea is pretty interesting. And if Apple does go for something like this, however, you just know they’d call it Magic iRemote.

Facebook: 44 mln users of iPhone app, not 104 mln



facebook-logo-cjr

Yesterday Facebook released some astonishing statistic results showing an astronomical number of monthly active users – over 100 million on iPhones, almost 60 million on BlackBerry and 12 million on the Android client. However, double-checking, these numbers seem a little bit strange: can there really be more than 100 million iPhone users, when by June 2010 only 100 million iOS devices had been sold, and this includes the iPod touch, iPad and iPhone? Turns out, the explanation is just in the definition of “active”. Here’s how a Facebook spokesman accounted for the figures:

iPhone 4 to Get Mili PowerSpring 4 for longer battery life



mili-powerspring-4If we look at the iPhone 4 and Galaxy S, we’ll see a big difference between them. No, we're not talking about iOS against Android 2.1. We are talking about batteries: one of them is removable, and the other is not - guess which one? Although today you can find a lot of accessories that offer incredible opportunity to recharge your favorite devices.

If you do not want to bring bulky chargers or extra batteries, then you should pay attention to Mili PowerSpring 4.

So, it is the latest and one of the first cases designed for iPhone 4 with an expanded space for the battery. Mili PowerSpring 4 is available at $ 54.99 (or $ 85 on Amazon). It is said to be the thinnest battery for iPhone 4 in the whole world, sporting 1600mAh capacity.

Apple files a New Patent for iMac Touch



6a0120a5580826970c0133f34442aa970b801Recently we’ve talked about the rumors that Apple is planning to release a new iMac with multitouch display, which will run on iOS 4 over OS X to use sensory capabilities. It seems that we’ll finally see the touchscreen computer from Apple. A new interesting patent has just been spoken about, which shows the iMac with multitouch display called "Apple iMac Touch".

Now Apple says nothing about this device, yet it is only a patent, so we do not know exactly how much time it will need to start producing it.
