On Wednesday Nico Weber, a Google Software Engineer, revealed that the company "committed to polishing" its Chrome browser to take advantage of Apple's new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, released on Monday. Nico posted the promise to the company's official Chrome blog along with a screenshot of the "early results" of high-resolution support in Chrome.
"We have further to go over the next few weeks, but we’re off to the races to make Chrome as beautiful as it can be," he said.
Apple recently introduced new iOS 6 which has the new Maps app. Apple finally removed Google Maps and added cool features, like 3D views, turn by turn navigation, and full integration with Siri. Let's watch the demo:
Thanks again! You guys are the best.
Apple has begun putting up banners for iOS 6 at Moscone West, where WWDC 2012 will take place next week. It looks like the next version of Apple mobile operating system is not rumors any more - it's a fact.
iOS 6 is expected to bring improvements to some stock applications. Apple is believed to be dropping Google Maps and replacing it with its own in house solution.
Take a look at some more iOS 6 banner photos below:
Ahead of the annual conferences of Apple and Google, analytics firm Flurry compared developer support for Android and iOS by analyzing data collected from over 70,000 companies and 185,000 mobile apps. Its findings show that for every 10 apps that are built by developers, seven are created for iOS (the graph bar above). The company also reports that Google and Apple have a joint market cap of nearly $750 billion.
In a today’s press conference, Google introduced “the next dimensions” of its Google Maps. The presentation included a lot of history of the Google Maps, Earth and Street View and a peek at what is expected. The announcements are particularly important given the rumors that Apple is going to replace Google Maps with its own maps application in iOS.
You’ve obviously heard that Apple is going to refresh its Maps application in the forthcoming iOS6 and move away from Google Maps that Apple has used since the launch of the iPhone in 2007, replacing it by the company’s own service.
The Wall Street Journal chronicles the last five years that have saw Google and Apple going from best of corporate friends to sworn enemies spending a great deal of time disparaging each other in courts. The latest confrontation seems to be closely connected with Maps.
At this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Apple is likely to present new software features in iOS and OS X, and refresh its Mac line up.
Analyst Shaw Wu said on Friday that a new Maps application in iOS to be unveiled at WWDC later this month will be a "greatly enhanced" version with 3D capability. The app was internally developed by Apple and allows the company to move away from Google.
BGR just posted images of Apple’s iOS 6 Maps app with 3D mapping. This is just a mockup, because most of the real photos their source was able to capture were blurry.
Apple is reportedly testing its 3D technology in build 10A314 of iOS 6. The renderings are quite accurate, from what the sources say. From what we've heard the 3D icon only exists on the iPad version.
The New York Times claims that Facebook is drawing upon former Apple engineers and has hired "more than half a dozen former Apple software and hardware engineers who worked on the iPhone" to develop its own phone. The New York Times’ report also said that Facebook is interested in buying a smartphone company. It raised $16 billion during its recent IPO, enough to purchase either Research in Motion or HTC.
One tipster suggested that the current effort is the company's third attempt to build a smartphone. People who reportedly worked on the first attempt told the Times that the project fell apart because it proved to be more difficult than expected. As a result, Facebook is believed to have realized that it needs industry-experienced veterans to develop hardware, specifically Apple alumni.
