Another Microsoft ad comparing iPad with a Surface RT tablet was released yesterday on the company’s official YouTube channel.
This time we can see a Windows RT tablet and an iPad 4. Microsoft ad-makers claim that their device is surely better than the Apple gadget. Well, as usual, they show how the multitasking works, how to connect a USB flash drive to the Windows RT tablet and how the prices for both devices differ. Boring...
Twelve South has launched a new HiRise stand for the iPhone and iPad mini. The design of the stand enable it to be compatible with the Apple Lightning Cable and most cases available on the market.
Using one of three different adjustable clips and your Apple Lightning Cable (not included), HiRise positions the Lightning connector at a raised height to connect and charge your iPhone 5 or iPad mini. This allows HiRise to work with most cases, including cases with recessed connections no other dock can fit, like the OtterBox Defender, Speck CandyShell and, of course, the BookBook for iPhone. The rear support also adjusts forward and back to accommodate the different thicknesses of various cases and shells.
'American Legend' has posted a new trailer for the log-expected Steve Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher. The movie will be released on August 16th.
It only takes one person to start a revolution. The extraordinary story of Steve Jobs, the original innovator and ground-breaking entrepreneur who let nothing stand in the way of greatness.

Now have a look at the new trailer.
Apple has just released another ad from the popular series launched a bit earlier this year. This time it’s called "FaceTime Every Day" and as you might have guessed it shows the advantages of using the FaceTime app.
MondoMedia has released another Steve Jobs video. This time it’s a Breaking Bad parody of the Apple founder and if you don’t like or don’t get black humor, you’d better not watch this short clip.
Here’s what the description on YouTube says:
A terminal cancer diagnosis sends Steve Jobs into beastmode, and into the lab with Jony Ive to cook up the most addictive substance known to man.
Well, the results of Steve’s madness you can see on a video below.
The story's written by two authors - Andy Ochiltree and Aaron Simpson. The latter one is also a director of the video, which is, by the way, is said to be available on iTunes a bit later this August.
A video, showing something very similar to the iPad 5 with translucent logo and thinner bezel, has been posted on YouTube by a Japanese website Mac Otakara. There’re no internal details - only the front and back covers assembled together.
One of the most interesting Samsung Galaxy S4’s features is probably Smart Pause. This is the feature that automatically pauses video playback each time you look away. For quite a long period of time those who use iPhones had to put up with the fact that there’s nothing similar for the iOS platform. And then FaceHalt was released.
We all know that the movie about Apple’s founder Steve Jobs will hit the theaters very soon - on August 16. If you somehow happened to miss the numerous announcements, trailers, posters and whatever else - you have now a chance to catch up the army of the Jobs fans.
Watching a 40-minute long Google+ web-interview under this post, you may listen to the starring actors - Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad - talking about the film and the characters they’ve played. Apart from that, there’s a new movie trailer one may find somewhere around the 8 minute mark.
Looks like this is all I wanted to tell you before you watch a video. Enjoy!
This is an old video featuring Steve Jobs introducing Wi-Fi for the first time to the masses. It was the first mainstream computer with wireless networking.
The video was filmed on a Keynote conference in 1999, where Steve Jobs introduced the iBook G3. It was the first computer that carried an inserted Wi-Fi card. It was the first time Wi-Fi was introduced to the masses. To prove that the technology was really wireless, Steve Jobs used a Hula Hoop to put the laptop through it.
On this historic conference Jobs said that 'everyone' would jump on the 802.11 bandwagon in the next few months/years. "We're just going to be there first, and the best," Jobs said.
The video shows Jobs surfing the net from an iBook that was just woken from sleep. Nobody in the audience was aware that Jobs was using a wireless technology, so when he stood up, picked up the laptop and walked around the stage, opening webpages wirelessly, the crowd roared with applauses. Then he put the laptop through a hula hoop to show that the Internet collection was indeed wireless.

Fingerprint sensors have been rumored to be used in iPhones since Apple acquired the mobile security company AuthenTec last year.

Microsoft has launched an ad attacking Apple. Or should be say launched again? It is not the first time Microsoft is comparing its devices with iPad. The ad always claims Microsoft products to be much cooler. They feature exactly the specifics iPad lacks. For example, a built-in back stand, USB port, and keyboard accessory. All of these accessories are options on the iPad, though it still can be considered a disadvantage. Are they really? The price for such an ad is quite high to pay. It was announced that Microsoft lost 900 million dollars in the last quarter due to Surface discount.
Another interesting feature is that in all ads of such type the Voiceover says,”This isn’t going to end well for me, is it? Nope definitely not ending well.” However, financial research shows that it is the Surface which is likely to be in trouble rather than Apple’s iPad.
