Motorola Takes Another Jab at the iPhone



motorolla1Motorola has taken out yet another full page ad in the New York Times, this time making fun of the iPhone's lack of Flash. The ad reads: "Flash Websites? There's a phone for that. Introducing the new Droid 2 by Motorola." This is obviously a play on the "There's an App for that" slogan used by Apple.

Next-gen iPad is testing FaceTime... right now



video call
Honestly, from this distance it's hard to tell what's going on, but 9 to 5 Mac says we're looking at a next-gen camera-equipped iPad fielded specifically to test video calls. The shot shows the unit in a Video Call debugging mode, hinting at FaceTime. This same mode was noted in the leaked iPhone 4 shots earlier this year. Additionally, The iPad 2 is also rumored to have a retina display.

Now that iPod touch has gotten a camera and FaceTime, can iPad really be far behind?

ipodtouchvibrate

A new iPod touch has got a new undocumented ability, which we should talk about. Now it will be able to vibrate, just like the iPhone! It seems that the developers in the first place took care of deaf users, as the main purpose of the device is vibration when they receive calls from FaceTime.

Mophie Juice Pack Air to Double Your iPhone 4 battery



mophie-juice-pack-air-mophie-juice-pack-air-iphone-4-engadgetHave you been waiting for the upcoming Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 4 for a long time? You are not alone. It became known that this device will be available for $ 79 next week. We even managed to get firsthand information that claims that the prototype looks and feels quite hard, considering the fact that the device can double the non-removable battery of your iPhone. Juice Pack Air is a USB charge that easily syncs with iTunes. It has an integrated 4 LED charging status, as well as a backup switch, which disables the charge, making its appendage a very attractive (though it is quite heavy featuring the 1500mAh battery), easily-controlled case. So now you know all about it.

Researchers create pixels eight times smaller than the Retina Display



1

Researchers at the University of Michigan have created a display with nanometer-thin sheets of metal (called nanoresonators) that use slits to create pixels eight times smaller than the pixels currently on the iPhone 4. To show off their work, the University of Michigan researchers created their school's logo on a display only 9 microns tall (a strand of human hair is about 100 microns wide).

Crazy. You have to wonder what an iPhone-sized display would look like with a resolution like that (or if we'd even tell the difference, given that our eyes have a limit on the amount of detail they can discern). Obviously, such  display would probably cost a lot more than the iPhone 4 actually does.

Apple to Double iTunes Preview Song Lengths?



tunes

iTunes users will be able to sample a minute of a song before purchasing. Currently, iTunes song samples are limited to 30 seconds.

The report said that the addition of more sample time is one of a number of expected changes to iTunes, aimed at helping users discover music. It is rumored that Apple will spend "a large part" of its 1st September  special event detailing how the new iTunes improves the user experience. But Apple is not expected to introduce a cloud-based iTunes service, which would allow users to stream music to devices such as the iPhone.

Unreal Photos with iPhone!



airplane1

The two pictures of airplane propellers seem absolutely unreal. Yet, it is no Photoshop – just the iPhone and its Rolling Shutter Effect.

The photos were made by Soren Ragsdale and Jason Mullins, and they represent the iPhone’s way of image acquisition.

2.8-inch iPod touch for $99!



image-1According to iLounge, at this week’s event Apple is planning to unveil its new 2.8-inch iPod touch sporting the same resolution as latest versions of the device. It is said that the current Nano’s screen is a bit smaller, only 2.4 inches. At the same time it is running on the same processor (although it has less RAM).

The idea is pretty good, because it will help fill the gap between your Nano and Shuffle devices.

Some users believe that they would have difficulties in typing on 2.8-inch iPod touch, but we are sure that kids will really appreciate it. And the price is pretty funny, right?

Yet it is a very interesting concept. Just imagine Wi-Fi, web browser, email, 250, 000 applications from the App Store, maps, videos, photos and much more for $ 100 dollars. Is it tempting?
