httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izNoF1SWtSg

CNet has recently reported that soon Apple will unveil a new high-speed connection technology for its devices, which is based on Intel's Light Peak technology. The latter should appear in products during the first half of 2011, according to Intel. But though Apple's new technology will be based on Intel's Light Peak, it was reported that Apple will brand it under its own name.

Light Peak allows to transfer information with 10 Gbps, which is almost three times faster than USB 3.0 (3.2 Gbps) and more than 10 times faster than Firewire 800 (800 Mbps). In practice it will allow to copy a full-length Blu-Ray movie in approximately 30 seconds.

Rumors on iPhone Nano continue to distract from MWC



mobile_world_congress_2011

Today The U.K.'s Daily Mail also confirmed rumors on iPhone Nano, which is set to be released this summer separately from the iPhone 5. Anonymous sources were cited in the publication to reveal both already known and unknown details on the new device:

  • iPhone Nano will cost $200 without a carrier subsidy or contract;
  • The device will be a third smaller than the iPhone 4;
  • No "Home" button;
  • The handset may be delayed or scrapped.

It was also explained why the new device may be popular.

"Phone users on tighter budgets have been shunning the pricey iPhones in favour of less expernsive models which have Google's popular Android software. Apple will now hope to lure away customers from the likes of Nokia".

Besides that, the publication reported that Apple has been working on new iPhone hardware and software that would allow customers to bypass the carriers and choose a network by themselves directly from the handset.

Apple Is Revamping Notification System For iOS



ios_notifications

Cult of Mac reports that Apple is working on a new notification system for iOS.

Apple’s pop-up notification system for new text messages, voicemails and the like has often been criticized as one of the weakest parts of the iOS. Notifications are intrusive, modal and often cryptic. It’s a mess.

And to build new technology into the operating system, the company is going to acquire a small iOS development firm that currently offers a notification system in the App Store. Cult of Mac suggests that it might be Boxcar, which offers an iOS application providing push notifications for a variety of services.

Steve Jobs Reassured Customer Concerned for Mac OS X Server's Future



snow_leopard_server_box

Yesterday we reported that Apple might discontinue some of its server-relating products at the end of this month and cut Mac OS X Server from Apple’s lineup. One of MacRumors readers emailed Steve Lobs to let know if the serve might be discontinued.

MacRumors’ reader: “If you are abandoning enterprise solutions by eliminating the Xserve, does that mean OS X Server is not far behind? It seems that way. I would hate to see that because I like the product.”

Steve Job’s answer: “No”

His response might mean that Mac OS X Server is not under the danger. Though, Jobs always addresses questions selectively and in rather clever way.

Controversial Steve Jobs figurine appears to sell for $2,500 on eBay



jobs figure

Although Apple blocked the producer of a lifelike action figure of Apple CEO Steve Jobs from selling it, one of the figures was sold for $2,500 on eBay. In November the producer quickly sold out the initial run of 300 limited edition figures. Some days later Apple sent a cease-and-desist email to the website, citing California Civil Code Section 3344, "which prohibits the use of any person’s name, photograph or likeness in a product without that person’s prior consent." Now we see that one of the figures was listed for sale for a starting price of $1,000, but eventually sold for the $2,500.

schooliPad

New $100,000 pilot program is now under its way at two Hancock County elementary schools to allow hundreds of kids to have iPads and start doing math, reading books and other school assignments. The program is sponsored with the help of federal grant money and teachers are already concentrated on complete customizing the Apple's tablet experience for every child.

With this new plan students at Allen T. Allison and Weirton Heights elementary schools will be able to send papers via email directly to teachers, as every classroom will be provided with a WiFi connection. The teachers are aimed to make iPad as useful as it can be in students' daily work.

Frank Cary, who is a Weirton Heights Principal, is thrilled with this program:

"They're tired of the paper. This is exciting. It's got color. It brings it to life".

Jailbreak Hack Enables Landscape Springboard on iPhone



Everybody knows that the iPhone Springboard can’t be turned in landscape mode. Apple wants you to hold the device in portrait mode only. But some apps, like Mail, support the horizontal orientation. So, Cydia developers offer us the alternative solution, a new hack available in Cydia called “SBRotator” ($1.99). If you change your iPhone’s orientation, using the app, the Springboard will just follow it. But Springboard orientation change requires a proper layout change too. SBRotator puts an extra tab which enables you find the configuration that best suits your needs. Moreover, the program allows you to resize icons for landscape mode.

Publishers Are Still in a Stalemate with Apple



nyc-newsstand

Today Peter Kafka, who is a journalist writing for MediaMemo blog, reported that publishers and Apple cannot still come to an agreement on subscriptions for iPad content in the App Store.  The reason is still the same - publishers want to provide personal data about subscribers to advertisers, while Apple doesn't want to do this.

However, Apple proposes an alternative to the publishers, notably an opt-in form which will allows subscribers to choose whether publications can get an access to a "limited amount of information", which includes user's name, e-mail and physical mailing address, or not.
