In a move that anyone even remotely familiar with Apple could have seen coming from miles away, even with the SDK Apple wants complete control of what Apps make it onto the iPhone and iPod Touch and complete control of distribution. I don’t think this tidbit has been confirmed, but how likely is it Apple is going to open up any portion of their business model?
This notebook seems rather plain and basic, but deep inside it has a hidden feature. There is a turbo button, it doesn’t magically speed up the computer like the turbo buttons of yore, but it does help with your battery life.
Even better yet, for you the reader, we’ll be livecasting from the event like we do all of Apple’s events. The invite shows the SDK, Enterprise features, and Software update on the roadmap. As it gets closer to the event's date, we will post the livecast URL.
They have Bluetooth, noise cancellation, a healthy-sized screen, and a 33 hour battery life at the bottom, 36 at the top. For video you get the 320x240 LCD display that can play video at up to 30 frames per second for up to 10 hours, or at the least 9.5 hours.
So, I’ve had this thing for a few hours short of a full day, and I’ve got some stuff to report, but I don’t want to call this the end of the review, I am going to give it a few more days and then give the final part of the review. So far, I am not sold on it, but, my sister, who is taking classes in college for photography and the various digital arts got her hands on it and wouldn’t let go until I took it away to charge it.
Mr. Terada is apparently a genius, and of all the things he likely could have done with his mind, he chose to bring us all video capture capabilities on our DSLR cameras. In case you don’t know, DSLR’s are the high end digital cameras that everyone and their brother is carrying around these days, other than the fact that they have changeable lenses, most people that have them after this past Christmas season probably have no clue why they have them.
Look at the glory that is the Sprint Ace, really it’s just a BlackJack that looks a little different and uses CDMA and EVDO instead of whatever AT&T uses. Sure, I know, it looks a little different too, and that kind of makes since, they have managed to fit all the same features in a slightly smaller package with a slightly larger screen (2.3 inches compared to the BlackJack’s 2.25).
The new Apple TV update is now available for download. In case you missed our coverage of MacWorld where the update was announced, the major features in this update are PC-less access to the iTunes store, and both SD and HD movie rentals.
So ever since XM and Sirius even mentioned the possibility that they might be merging they have had to battle the FCC, the NAB, and Clear Channel to the death. Well apparently they got past the FCC (sort of) and past the NAB and now their last opponent is Clear Channel.
Other than the new N96, Nokia is dropping the N78, 6220, and 6210 devices and the new Version 2.0 of their Nokia Maps application. They all have their intended audience, the N78 is for the professional who is also into photography, the 6220 is intended for those not looking for something as full-featured as the N-Series, but want some nice functionality in a fairly basic phone, and the 6210 is aimed at those that need direction, as in GPS direction.
