Nokia CBD vs. Apple Retina... fight!





1
Come on, you knew this post was coming. Here we have a prototype Nokia E7 and its new 4-inch, 640x360 pixel Clear Black Display pitted again the iPhone 4's 3.5-inch 960x640 pixel Retina display. To our eyes, the iPhone 4 display has a noticeable blue warmth and wasn't as vibrant or bright as the CBD. The CBD, however, did come across a bit oversatured (just look at those red "breaking news" bars), but hey, it's AMOLED. It certainly looks just as good as the Galaxy S' Super AMOLED. We'll have to see how the polarized layer on the CBD affects sunlight viewing. More on that later. Until then, play nice dear readers.

iWatch! New straps for iPod nano by Incipio



nano6g_linq_mainbanner

Hooray! Incipio has released a real case and watch strap (Ling) for iPod nano iWatch! Now we can certainly say that this new offer will be sold with a great speed.

PR managers of Incipio admit that these straps are the best. Well, we need only to know their price ... but so far we've noticed only the following message: "Incipio offers new and unique design of straps for iPod nano iWatch. They are made of advanced polymer materials and are quite comfortable in use ...".

Thus, we can only hope that their price won't be pretty high for those users who are ready to buy one of them.

And this year he has also managed to get into the annual list of the best CEOs of the world.

Steve Jobs has also got the title of "The Best CEO" according to “The Fortune Survey report”. Besides, within three years Apple is being considered "The Most Admired Company of the World", leaving behind such well-known Internet giants, as Microsoft and Google.

Emergency Facetime calls?



emergency-facetime

Some users are interested in a little button that is located in the lower right corner of the latest iPod touch screen. What can it be? Is it one of the Photoshop errors by Apple developers? Or are these the guidelines for Emergency calls while using VoIP? Here is one more Photoshop error (do you see the picture?)

What Do iPhone and Android Users Eat?



500x_iphonenexusss

Coupons.com has recently conducted quite an unusual survey about iPhone and Android users. The results are definitely unexpected: according to the survey, iPhone users are “feminine-smelling, chicken-eating, entertainment-reading fish owners”, while Android users are “manly-scented, pork-eating, news-reading, bird lovers”. Would be interesting to know which category beef-eaters with no pets fall into? Blackberry, maybe?

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.

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

According to 10News, two guys were involved in the burglary. They robbed the store, which is located in a shopping center of San Diego. According to preliminary estimates, they stole 12 iPhone 4s and 3GS’, which were displayed there.

They smashed the glass door into small pieces, as you can see in the photo.

Possible $0.99 TV Show Rentals for $99 Apple TV



38777-500

Apple is holding talks with News Corp to fill their upcoming $99 Apple TV with $0.99TV Show rentals.

Viewers would be able to rent programs from News Corp.’s Fox for 48 hours, said the people, who declined to be identified because discussions aren’t public. CBS Corp. and Walt Disney Co., where Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs is a board member and the largest shareholder, also are in talks about joining the effort, the people say.

Apple’s previous plan to make a subscription TV service reportedly failed as media companies didn’t want to take risks with cable providers.
