High-Quality Video and Some Photos of the New iPhone



Each new day brings some news on what would the new lower-cost iPhone look like. And today it’s Techdy’s turn to astonish us with a high-quality video of something very similar to the plastic iPhone. In fact, the authors of all that stuff claim that the phone shown on the shot is created after they got their hands on legitimate front and back panels of the Apple’s new creation. However, the device you’ll see on a video below is just another iPhone copy running Andriod Jelly Bean. It would be available soon, so if you like you may try to make a pre-order.

Apple patents flexible battery for rumored iWatch



Apple has invented flexible components that will suit its much-rumored iWatch. Apart from flexible battery,  flexible displays that can wrap around the wrist were also patented earlier.  The invention can be used for any bendable product. Apple describes that the components can be employed in “wristwatches, calculators, laptop computers, tablet computers, and/or music players, to name but a few.”

Flexible battery packs for use in electronic devices are disclosed. In one embodiment of the present disclosure, the flexible battery pack may include a plurality of cells, such as galvanic or photovoltaic cells. The battery pack also may include a plurality of laminate layers coupled to the cells that include a top laminate layer and a bottom laminate layer. An adhesive may be used to couple the top and bottom laminate layers together such that each of the plurality of cells is isolated from each other. This arrangement may allow the battery to be shaped to fit a form factor of the electronic device. This arrangement also may allow one or more of the cells to be selectively removed from the plurality, which may be desirable from a manufacturing perspective.

So we may assume that these published patents will heat up the rumors about mysterious iWatch.

Apple's Poster to Commemorate the Fifth AppStore Birthday



Looks like Apple has hired a new guy responsible for all kinds of graphics and the way Apple gadgets look. At first he paints new ‘cheap’ iPhones red, green and yellow, then completely redesigns iOS 7 and after that persuades the executives to register a new FaceTime logo, which he likes immensely, as a trademark.

Well, there’re probably some other reasons for all that to happen, of course, but it really seems that Apple is currently centered primarily on the appearance – in addition to the things mentioned above, it has released a new poster commemorating the fifth anniversary of AppStore, Tim Bradshaw of Financial Times reports.

Apple builds a solar farm in Nevada



Apple is paying for the construction of an 18-megawatt photovoltaic solar plant in Nevada. It will power the company’s Reno data centre. According to Apple’s 2012 Environmental Footprint Report,Nevada centre will be the same environmentally responsible as the one in Maiden,North California. The latter helped to lessen unemployment by hiring hundreds of people during its construction.

The new station will use endless resources of natural solar radiation as well as geothermal recourses to supply the data centre with sufficient energy. It will cover 60% of power needs while the remaining will be acquired from local and regional sources.

Apple's New Microsoft 365 and Google Docs Rival



Rejoice all those who don’t like neither Google Docs, nor Microsoft Office 365 as a few days ago their new rival was born. Announced in June at WWDC, this rival is a purely new cloud-based iWork version. Well, actually, this is still only a beta and at the moment it is available only for Apple developers. However, what that means is that the relatively short-term Google-Microsoft domination in the sphere of cloud editing tools might be soon over.

Here’s the link for the developers that haven’t yet tried the new product and some screenshots for people that don’t have a developer account. Take a look at those photos.

The surreal beauty of some Apple Maps glitches



Peder Norrby, founder of the Swedish computer graphics company Trapdoor, has created a Flickr collection of some artistic and spectacular effects created by automated attempts to map 2D imagery onto 3D topology models in Apple Maps.

Of course, Apple Maps are not alone in some of the more … interesting results. Google Maps also have similar effects caused by the same issue: automated integration of 2D and 3D data without human vetting.

Take a look at the beautiful photos:
