The leak of iPhone 5C parts seems endless, now it is a new video, showing in detail the back housing of the device in yellow.
Sonny Dickson, the one who shared the video said, "We’ve gotten our hands on something a little more interesting: A detailed hands-on video showing a yellow iPhone 5C back housing! Not only does this further drive home the idea that the 5C will come in multiple colors – it also adds to the already vast amount of confirmation about the device’s design."
Apple is expected to release the rumored low cost iPhone next month, most likely on September 10th.
Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle has recently given an interview to CBS's Charlie Rose. It is well known that Larry was a close friend of Steve Jobs, so the main topic of the dialog was what he believes Apple without Steve Jobs will look like.
“Well, we already know,” Ellison told Rose. “We saw we conducted the experiment. I mean, it’s been done. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs. We saw Apple without Steve Jobs. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs. Now, we’re gonna see Apple without Steve Jobs.”
The events Ellison is talking about refer to the year 1985 when Steve Jobs was sacked by the Apple board. The Californian company went through many difficulties and had t struggle for further development. Later, Steve Jobs joined the company again CEO. As a result, such well-known products were launched as the iPod, iPhone and iPad, the ones that gave Apple world-wide recognition and generous revenues.
Nowadays, Apple is lead by Steve Jobs' hand picked successors - Tim Cook and the rest of the executive team (Jony Ive, Eddy Cue, etc). However, Ellison guesses that the sad history of Apple without Steve Jobs may be repeated.

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.
According to the latest rumors, Apple is going to change its main iMac supplier.
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.
VLC for iOS is back. Well, this app is only available in New Zealand now, however, it would reach the American App Store soon. As to the other countries, it is said to be available a bit later.
A new flexible battery was presented recently by ProLogium company from Taiwan. It happened only a few days after Apple patented the flexible battery design to use in iWatch.
The patent features a special bendable battery that consists of rigid batteries inserted into a flexible plastic substrate (FPS). The latest version of the batteries presented by the Taiwanese company feature bendable batteries which is a breakthrough in this technology.
Have a look at the video to see what it means. First, the general usage of flexible batteries is presented. Later, you will be shown some video concerning smart-watch.
Every new iPhone always features its own unique points, completely different from what its predecessors had. In case of iPhone 5S there are quite a few. The rumored fingerprint scanner is followed by another development – a 120FPS slow motion camera. It is believed that iPhone 5S will also boast really cool camera pack, including a dual LED flash and a 13MP sensor.
Currently Apple is designing a new camera feature for iPhone. It is a mode called “Mogul”. The latter will enable iPhone to capture video in a fast and precise way, at a rate of 120 frames-per-second (FPS). Unfortunately, the resolution of the 120 FPS is still unclear.
Apple has invented flexible components that will suit its much-rumored iWatch. Apart from flexible battery, flexible displays that can wrap around the wrist were also patented earlier. The invention can be used for any bendable product. Apple describes that the components can be employed in “wristwatches, calculators, laptop computers, tablet computers, and/or music players, to name but a few.”
Flexible battery packs for use in electronic devices are disclosed. In one embodiment of the present disclosure, the flexible battery pack may include a plurality of cells, such as galvanic or photovoltaic cells. The battery pack also may include a plurality of laminate layers coupled to the cells that include a top laminate layer and a bottom laminate layer. An adhesive may be used to couple the top and bottom laminate layers together such that each of the plurality of cells is isolated from each other. This arrangement may allow the battery to be shaped to fit a form factor of the electronic device. This arrangement also may allow one or more of the cells to be selectively removed from the plurality, which may be desirable from a manufacturing perspective.
So we may assume that these published patents will heat up the rumors about mysterious iWatch.
Rejoice all those who don’t like neither Google Docs, nor Microsoft Office 365 as a few days ago their new rival was born. Announced in June at WWDC, this rival is a purely new cloud-based iWork version. Well, actually, this is still only a beta and at the moment it is available only for Apple developers. However, what that means is that the relatively short-term Google-Microsoft domination in the sphere of cloud editing tools might be soon over.
Here’s the link for the developers that haven’t yet tried the new product and some screenshots for people that don’t have a developer account. Take a look at those photos.

According to Wall Street Journal, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) has agreed to supply Apple with A-series chips. Although the matter has been discussed since 2010, the deal was only signed this month, and TSMC starts producing some of the chips in 2014. By that time, the Taiwan company will improve the quality of the products so that they meet Apple’s requirements. The chips will become smaller and more energy efficient by using 20-nanometre technology.
When negotiating the deal, the American company offered either to invest in TSMC or to assign one factory as an exclusive Apple supplier. However, the Taiwan company did not accept either of the options to keep TSMC independent and adaptable.
Samsung used to be Apple’s main A-series chips supplier, but present ferocious competition between the companies is forcing the latter to diminish its dependence on the Korean company.
