LUXA2 H4: Elegant Apple iPad Holder



Thermaltake Technology company has a devision called LUXA2, which has many interesting luxury products. The recent interesting one is LUXA2 H4 - the Apple iPad solid-aluminum holder.

The holder looks really nice and is well manufactured. The main material is aluminum. The design is great and reminds us different Apple products, especially the iMac stand. LUXA2 H4 holds the iPad with two short and two V-shaped arms, that have six rubber nubs. The nubs tightly grip the iPad without scratching it. The user is able to adjust the width of the stand by pulling these arms. That's why LUXA2 H4 fits not only for the iPad, but can hold Amazon Kindle and many other eBook readers and tablets. This gives the H4 additional advantage over other stands on the market.

The holder also allows 360-degree rotation and 300-degree vertical adjustment. So there is no problem putting iPad at the right angle. Setting the iPad in portrait or landscape orientation is really very easy. However be careful rotating the device, since there are no V-shaped arms on the top.

LUXA2 H4 is great for internet browsing, ebook reading, watching movies and even gaming. It looks especially good when used with iPad and external keyboard.

512MB RAM update for iPhone 4



152001-imovieiphone

Since the first iPhone was launched, Apple has been making efforts to hide from the customers some of the actual technical specs of the device. The company has never advertised, let alone published the amount of RAM or the processor speed of the iPhone. Supposedly, the company doesn’t want to distract the customers with these technical details and just tries to focus on the actual functionality of the device.

Apple asked FCC not to show iPhone 4 details for 45 days



fcc
On June, 4 Apple sent a letter to the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) with request to keep new iPhone’s photos and any information about it in secret for forty five days.

Though this is a standard practice for Apple, the situation looks pretty strange as the device’s internals had been already revealed with numerous prototype leaks. But Patently Apple, the company that obtained and published the letter, found the explanation in the document itself:

“Although Apple has begun to market the device publicly, these documents reveal technical and design information that has not yet been publicly disclosed in such marketing and that is protected by Apple as confidential and proprietary secrets”.

AppleInsider created a list of new iPhone’s technical details and features that Apple may want to keep in secret for a while. It includes new features of A4 SoC, details of new frame antenna, new cellular radio support for pentaband UMTS (850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz) 3G bands, details related to possible support of T-Mobile (AWS UMTS IV band) and Verizon/Sprint (CDMA/EVDO) networks.

Mugged WWDC attendee got a new iPad and an e-mail from Jobs



mug1

A wonderful story happened with one WWDC attendee.

One developer of China's popular IM client TenCent got an invite to an Apple's annual conference and made a long trip to San Francisco where he was robbed. As a result he got his iPad smashed and a few signigicant injuries. The story would be sad if this guy didn't go to Apple Store and had his iPad replaced for free after revealing his story. Moreover, when the developer checked his e-mail later, he found a letter from Steve Jobs with a short "Safe travels home" message.

Photographic coverage can be seen below.

New Wall Dock Accessory For An iPad



1

If you remember, few weeks ago we posted a video describing how you can attach an iPad to the wall with a Velcro. Well, for those, who didn't like the design side of the idea here is a new accessory created by Arodsin Redningar, a Swedish designer. It's called iPad Capsule and it's a wooden frame that coated in a protective white paint.

It is specially angled and you can’t turn it 360 degrees, but it's surely looks good.

At the moment there is no information about the price or availability.

New iPhone's Glass May Not Be So Durable as Declared



GlassSMASHED

Third-party solutions provider iFixYouri somehow obtained a complete iPhone 4 shell without any internal components to test its glass face. After third attempt of dropping the device from 3,5 feet the glass panel was totally shattered as it may be seen on the photo above.

It is interesting that the surface onto which the handset was dropped was not revealed. It is also likely that the device will be more susceptible to damage with internal hardware presence.

AT&T servers had been hacked



att_applelogo-299x300

A group of hackers found a security flaw on the web servers of AT&T and after obtaining users’ 3G iPad SIM addresses (also known as ICC ID) from the web made an automated script attack to receive their email addresses.

According to Gawker report, now hacked users may "be vulnerable to spam marketing and malicious hacking". SIM addresses are easy enough to obtain, because many people have already posted their ICC ID numbers in photos published on Flickr for instance. But most of them have their e-mails published too, so it is likely that they have already received such spam.
