Skype recently posted a promotional video for an official iPad application that will have video calling functionality. The video has been deleted and later uploaded again on youtube by some user. The interface looks great. Take a look:
The recently unveiled iCloud service, which will help to share content between different devices, is seen by a leading analyst as even better evidence that Apple is readying to release a high-definition TV set in late 2012.
We’ve heard rumors that Amazon is planning multiple mobile devices and their chief Jeff Bezos teased us to “stay tuned”.
Digitimes reports that the upcoming iPhone 5 set for a September might be released with a new dual-LED flash system. The article is citing Taiwan-based companies Everlight Electronics, Edison Opto and Lite-On Technology that are the potential suppliers for the new Flash sensors.
Everlight and Lite-On have strengthened their deployments in the smartphone market for a while, with their products already being shipped to the supply chains of brand-name handset vendors, said industry sources. Edison, which is specialized in the production of high-power LEDs, has begun shipping its LED flash products to branded handset vendors and therefore has a high chance of winning dual-LED flash orders from Apple, the sources noted.
The device will include the A5 processor, the more powerful chip that Apple added to the iPad 2 earlier this year, along with an 8-megapixel camera, up from the 5-megapixel model in the iPhone 4, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public. Apple is also testing a new version of the iPad that has a higher resolution screen, similar to the one now used in the iPhone 4, one of the people said.
Earlier today, another rumor source BGR reported that the new iPhone would be released even earlier, in late August. They have also mentioned that new iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 would feature a radical new design.
Here are couple N9 video reviews from Engadget:
“How big is this opportunity? In the 4-year lifespan of [Apple's] iconic MacBook Air, units sold as a percentage of its total notebook supply was 8 percent in 2008, 9 percent in 2009, and 17 percent in 2010 to an estimated 48 percent in 2011,” he stated.
Advanced Intel Sandy Bridge processors designed for ultraportable laptops (chips can “turbo” or overlock to much higher speeds) were priced today:
Core i7-2637M: 1.7 GHz (turbos to 2.8GHz), 2 cores, 17 watts, 4MB cache, priced at $289
Core i7-2677M: 1.8 GHz (turbos to 2.9GHz), 2 cores 17 watts, 4MB cache, priced at $317
Core i5-2557M: 1.7 GHz (turbos to 2.7GHz), 2 cores 17 watts, 3MB cache, priced at $250
Possibly more important that these chips are based on Intel’s newish fab process that will make power efficiency much higher. But the drawback is that they will utilize Intel’s slower chipset that doesn’t make use of Nvidia’s 3xx series graphics.
New MacBook Airs are expected within a month.
The main difference compared to the old Gevey unlock method is that you don't have to dial 112. dialing 112/911 and hanging up is illegal in most countries, now this problem is gone.
Gevey Ultra works with
- iOS 4.0, 4.1, 4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3
- Basebands 01.59, 02.10, 03.10.01, 04.10, 04.10.01
Some sources claim that Gevey Ultra works even with the latest iOS 5 beta 1.
Take a look at the Gevey Ultra video demo:
In recent weeks more and more reports have appeared, claiming that Apple is putting final touches to the new MacBook Airs that are expected to be released late June or July. MacRumors has a guess that the high-end models may come with a black option for the aluminium case.
Over the past week, we’ve received several anonymous tips claiming that at least some models of the next-generation MacBook Air will be be available with a black finish, different from the aluminum case used on the current MacBook Air and most of Apple’s other Macs. The most specific of the claims suggests that a black anodized aluminum case would be available on a top-end MacBook Air model, in much the same way as Apple once offered a high-end black MacBook on top of the standard white offerings.
As for the black colour, Apple already offered black versions of the MacBook a few years. MacRumors also reports that their source close to Apple sent them e-mail, where he said that the black MacBooks were indeed produced, but didn’t get Steve Jobs’ approval in the end.
It has been known for some time that TiVo is developing new companion applications for devices based on iOS and that they already finished free iPad application for the Premiere box. The

According to a new report, Apple knows and is ready to lend "minor support" to Facebook’s web application platform "Project Spartan" based on HTML5, even after Facebook has attempted to understate rumors about this project.
The information was revealed by Apple attorney Harold MacElhinny, who responded on Friday to questioning from Lucy Koh, who is a U.S. Disctrict Judge.
Koh hoped the companies may resolve the case without attracting the court and thus said:

Today Comex revealed in his Twitter that he found a way to drastically decrease the time it takes to jailbreak and learned how to utilize unionfs and thus get rid of the Cydia's 'Reorganizing FileSystem' process.
New approach will reportedly be used in his next jailbreak for iPad 2.

Earlier Musclenerd stated that it won't be necessary to move Apple apps anywhere if unionfs will be used. That also means that apps will keep their entitlements and thus simplify the sandboxing problem.
