I expected Apple to jump on Leap Motion first, not ASUS

I expected Apple to jump on Leap Motion first, not ASUS

If you can judge a technology's wow-factor by how much it's accused of being vaporware, Leap Motion's gesture-tracking was a hit from the off; companies jumped on the idea, though it's perhaps a surprise that the first should be ASUS, not Apple. The matchbox-sized gadget - which can track the movement of ten fingers individually, and 200x more accurately than kit like Microsoft's Kinect - will soon be integrated into Windows 8 PCs from ASUS, according to a new deal announced today. Microsoft's OS certainly loves fingers, but Apple's moves to blend the best of OS X and iOS arguably make it and Leap Motion more obvious bedfellows.

Apple Data Center goal is 100% Green

This week the folks responsible for Apple's building construction efforts have broken ground on a new location in Prineville, Oregon where they've promised a "100% Renewable Energy" data center. This data center would help contain such data as iCloud backups like its soon to be partner facility in Maiden, North Carolina. This center promises to be "even more" environmentally friendly than the center that already exists in Maiden, this new facility out-doing the Maiden's giant solar power array which accounts for 60 percent of the center's power requirements.

Samsung S-Cloud tipped to challenge Apple on May 3

Samsung's Galaxy S III isn't the only new product expected at the company's May 3 event in London; the S-Cloud rival service to Apple's iCloud is also tipped to make its official debut. Full details of the service are unclear, though the long-rumored launch is a lock-in for early next month so the Maeli Business' sources whisper, but unlike Apple there will supposedly be no limits on what type of content can be stored in Samsung's cloud. Interestingly, Samsung confirmed last week that it has a multimedia cloud service in the pipeline.

New Apple TV hands-on

New Apple TV hands-on

Apple's new Apple TV looks no different from the outside, but when you hook up your TV it's another matter: Full HD video support, along with a new, streamlined UI that pulls the STB further in line with its iOS siblings. The compact box plays particularly nicely with the new iPad, and while 1080p isn't enough to handle the Retina Display on the new tablet, the video shifting technology makes them a great pairing.

Apple developing both A5X and A6 processors, hints iOS 5.1 code

Apple developing both A5X and A6 processors, hints iOS 5.1 code

Apple may be working on two new processors this year for the upcoming iPad 3 and iPhone 5. There have been conflicting reports from trustworthy publications, some claiming that the next-gen iPad would sport a new quad-core chip, while others claim an enhanced dual-core chip with an improved graphics engine. A recently leaked image purported to be the iPad 3's logic board, showed an "A5X" processor, suggesting a more evolutionary upgrade than revolutionary. However, 9to5Mac delved into iOS 5.1 code, finding that Apple may actually be developing both at the same time.

iPad 3 Apple A5X chipset reportedly leaked

The iPad 3's logic board bearing its new Apple A5X processor has leaked, if Chinese tipsters are to be believed, the latest component from the hotly-anticipated third generation tablet to break cover. Although previous speculation had centered on Apple using an A6 chip in the new iPad, the photo shared at forum WeiPhone suggests a more evolutionary rather than revolutionary upgrade is intended. Yesterday, another iPad 3 component leak indicated the new model would have an 8-megapixel camera and slightly different styling.

Apple playing for keeps with Tim Cook salary splurge

Apple playing for keeps with Tim Cook salary splurge

Apple CEO Tim Cook is not netting a near-$400m annual salary, despite reports supposedly detailing the chief exec's bulging paycheck, as the top-tier benefits are contingent on him staying with the company for a decade. Speculation as to Cook's financial position began yesterday, with an AP report citing the restricted Apple stock the company's board approved as part of his taking the role Steve Jobs vacated last year. However, subsequent reports failed to recognize when, exactly, Cook could expect to see any cash.
