500x_branchrkidHere is the story of a 16-year-old boy whose name is Christian Owens. Being so young, he managed to make $1,000,000, following the steps of his mentor Steve Jobs who is Apple’s CEO.

Three years later, he got a Mac and started studying the principles of web design. In 2008 when he was 14, he founded his first company. It was a simple website that some people may know: Mac Bundle Box. The website was pretty good and corresponded to the principles of design and style oа Apple.”

Storybook Application for Deaf People



ipadsignlanguage540x481Recently iStorytime has announced a new application for reading texts with children called Danny the Dragon. It's not the content of the selected stories, which we admire. This application for the iPhone and iPad devices is one of the first that includes video stories being read in a beautiful and understandable language.

Well, if you are waiting for something extraordinary or high tech, you have come to the wrong place. This application includes simple video narrations being read by the woman. Nevertheless, it is quite useful and necessary application for each family that has a child and has no time to go shopping in search of paper books.

A Telephonic MacBook from Apple



telephonic-macbookAmong the downsides that the present Apple’s MacBooks have lies in the fact that there is no possibility of 4G, 3G or LTE network connection without using a USB modem (or some other devices).

According to the Apple’s patent filings we may state that the company has some ideas and is working on their fulfillment. It goes about a telephonic MacBook that will have a magnetically coupled antenna.

It is said that the company is planning to use the wireless communication circuitry in MacBooks. Thus, users can get data communications in some communication bands and cellular telephone communications in several frequency bands.

Let’s wait what actions Apple is going to take with such fancy patent ideas for their future line of MacBooks, but we think that users won’t be disappointed.

Apple's rechargeable AA batteries are rebranded Sanyo Eneloops?



11111111

Recently released Apple's rechargeble batteries were found to have many of the same characteristics as the Sanyo Eneloop model HR-3UTG batteries first developed in 2005 and launched for sale in 2006. Both batteries retain over 75% of their charge after three years of use. In addition to having identical performance, the Sanyo rechargeables also have the same minimum capacity of 1900 mAh. Moreover, Apple's new rechargeable batteries do not offer any indication of who manufactured them.

Experts took apart one of the AA batteries from Apple, but did not find any evidence on the inside that they are manufactured by Sanyo. The batteries are the first Apple’s product, which doesn’t have an Apple logo on them. In fact, the only thing known about these batteries is what that they were made in Japan. Sanyo's corporate headquarters is in Japan, and its Eneloop batteries are manufactured also in Japan.

And batteries have almost similar prices: Apples batteries retail for $29 and Sanyo Eneloop – for about $22.

Apple has not commented this situation.

Howto secure iPhone iOS: PDF exploit fix



There is a big a security hole in iPhone iOS. The device is insecure in a big and obvious way. You should be extremely careful of what sites you visit.

The FlateDecode vulnerability can be used when a PDF File is embedded within a Web page. Basically Safari tries to parse the PDF. And when it does it executes some code. Hackers can use this exploit to read and write iPhone data, get your contacts, sms, even delete something. So they can get all kinds to access your personal information stored on your iOS device.

Apple will fix it some day. Until then you need to take care of your iPhone security. There is a fix for that. It is available via Cydia for jailbroken devices. So you need to jailbreak in order to secure (funny isn't it?).

Apple's Anti-Porn Stance Gets Harder



dlp-mobile-mirror-rejected-pics

As you may know, this week Apple removed Chatroulette’s clone app iChatr from the AppStore because "users were exposing themselves" and it was a part of the company's anti-porn stance.

Now we have information that DLP Mobile's app, which simply represents an idea of mirror for the iPhone 4, was also rejected because the screenshots that were submitted along with it were considered as "obscene, pornographic, or defamatory" (referring to Section 3.318 from the iPhone Developer Program Licence Agreement).
