A few days ago, Nokia released a video, where claimed that the Lumia 925’s camera is a lot better than the iPhone 5’s photo sensor. What we have here today is the comparison gallery of photos taken using the Nokia Lumia 1020 and, of course, the iPhone 5. Let’s take a look.

Apple is again raising the issue of patent wars with Samsung. Cupertino company is planning to ask a U.S. appeals court to ban certain Samsung devices that were found in violation of Apple patents. It is not long since Obama vetoes the ban placed on Apple products for a similar reason.
The company will ask a U.S. appeals court tomorrow to block sales of Samsung models a California jury found violated patents for the iPhone’s look and features. Later, a U.S. trade agency is expected to say if it will halt some Samsung imports based on other Apple patent-infringement claims.
Have a look at the high quality photos, that show the similarities and differences between the alleged digitizer and lcd screen assembly of the iPhone 5S with that of the iPhone 5.
As you can see, the main differences are in the the ribbon cables and the screw placement. This means that some modifications were made to the logic board. Unfortunately, as you can see, there is nothing that could prove the appearance of the rumored fingerprint scanner in the new version.
No enjoy the photos!
WhatsApp will get a Voice Messages feature. This is the official information from the application developers. On the video below you may see the instructions on how to send and receive the voice messages from your friends and acquaintances.
Last month it was found out that very few users are ready to pay for iOS 7 app updates on apps they already owned. Most of them would prefer to stay on iOS 6, rather than to update to iOS 7 and pay again for the apps.
Let's have at what developers think.
Craig Hockenberry, developer at Iconfactory (Twitterrific):
Like many of my fellow developers, I am in the middle of an update of an app for iOS 7. As you’d expect, it’s a lot more work than previous versions of iOS. But results are stunning: both David Lanham and I have commented that our shipping version was “feeling old and clunky.”
While cranking along on the update, a couple of thoughts occurred to me: how many other developers were doing the same thing and were they going to commit fully to iOS 7? The depth and breadth of the changes in iOS 7 makes it difficult to support older versions of the OS.
iPhones are being stolen very often. Many thefts are pretty difficult to investigate since the very first thing a thief does is he disables the Find My iPhone feature, gets rid of the SIM-card he got with the phone and restores the operating system. However, there’s one interesting case that shows a criminal, who has chosen another way.
This day can be called the day of ads since such tech giants as Apple (see the article below) and Nokia released new ads. And if the company from Cupertino simply advertises its FaceTime app, the guys from Finland mock the iPhone 5 camera and compare it to the Nokia Lumia 925’s photo sensor.
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.
There’re some leaked photos on the Internet that show how would the new iPad 5 rear shell look like. Without wasting much time on talking about when would Apple release its new tablet, I’ll simply quote the
Our great sources have given us TWO unreleased iPad 5 rear housings, which shows some new exciting features. The iPad 5’s dimensions are surprisingly enough 24×16.8 cm and weighs only 100 gram, which is clearly both shorter and lighter than its predecessors.
Looks like the Apple’s lower cost iPhone would be an iPhone 5 plastic copy. Apart from the other similar hardware solutions, it is said to get an 8-megapixel rear camera.
Something very similar to a new Apple A7 processor has been recently spotted inside the iOS 7 filesystem by a developer Nick Frey. What is more - this chip includes Samsung components. Again.
Among the latest updates and improvements for iOS 7 and older iOS versions, there’s one connected with iMessage app. Now any user can report an unwanted message or SPAM to Apple.

It is believed that during the previous meetings the mostly discussed topic, whereas during this one the leaders are likely to have talked about co-generation iPhone and sales.

The first two meetings of Tim Cook to China took place in early January 2013 and mid-March 2012.
