SkinIt Etched Metal Plate for iPhone 4S Review

SkinIt Etched Metal Plate for iPhone 4S Review

As far as unique skins for the mobile market go, iPhone or not, there's nothing quite as detailed and unique as SkinIt's own Etched Metal Plates. These plates are made specifically for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S and attach flat to the back of your device with a simple adhesive sticker. The adhesive is no joke, of course, strong as it needs to be to hold this plate on for the long haul, and the folks at SkinIt mean business when they say its stainless steel.

Tweetbot for iPhone Review

Tweetbot for iPhone Review

If there's one reason to continue using Twitter outside the desktop environment other than your all-consuming addition to checking updates, it's Tweetbot.

This app uses a selection of gestures to allow you to interact with each Tweet, has a perfectly excellent aesthetic to the entirety of it, and has customizable tabs to make your experience just what you want it to be.

Path iPhone update live, “fixes” privacy issue

Today there's been a bit of controversy surrounding the Path app for iPhone and how it gains access to your contacts without asking you permission to do so. While its customary for such requests to go down with most major apps and is required by every single app in, for example, the Android Marketplace, it's only today become an issue for Path developers. Per the public's request though, and not a moment too soon, Path's Dave Morin has let loose an apology as well as an update to the app live in the iTunes App Store now.

G-Form X Protect iPhone 4/4S case revealed, survives 82 mph slapshot

The folks at G-Form have brought the fury once more with a brand new case for Apple devices, this time not protecting the iPad, but the iPhone 4/4S instead, and their first death-defying test is in the hockey arena. The test you're about to see shows off the power of protection in the G-Form X Protect case as a hockey superstar takes a nice couple of cracks at it with his stick. As the video will show, this is no joke when it comes to breaking and smashing - 82 mph hits with a blunt object don't exactly fare well normally one a device like the iPhone.

Wolfram Alpha Pro revealed, seeks to end wiki-ness

Wolfram Alpha Pro revealed, seeks to end wiki-ness

It appears that Wolfram Alpha is bringing the fury to the student base of the world with no less than a pay-per-month service that amps their already powerful question and answer service up to an equitable level for professionals. While Wikipedia may be, sadly enough, one of the main knowledge wells in the world right now for students hoping to get their answers to questions quick, Wolfram Alpha brings the curated non-crowd-sourced knowledge vault to your browser window and your Siri on the daily. As Wolfram Alpha already powers a free service and works with the iPhone 4S to provide you with Siri's go-to resource for data, they bring a $4.95 a month (or $2.99 for students) service to the market today with abilities above and beyond what they've offered in the past.

iPhone 4S A5 processor packs custom Siri “ears” chip

iPhone 4S A5 processor packs custom Siri “ears” chip

Apple's refusal to put its Siri voice control system on the iPhone 4 is not a shameless play to persuade users to upgrade to the 4S, it's suggested, but a limitation of the Apple A5 chip found inside the newest iOS smartphone. The A5, Linley Group analyst Linley Gwennap says, was always too large simply to accommodate two Cortex A9 CPUs and a GPU, CNET reports; the extra bulk is to house an on-chip noise-reduction system sourced from specialists Audience, which revealed its deal with Apple last month.

Switching between Android 4.0 ICS and iPhone 4S

Switching between Android 4.0 ICS and iPhone 4S

When you switch from an Android phone over to the iPhone or vice versa, there are a few adjustments you'll have to make. The difference between the two, no matter which versions of the software you're dealing with, are much smaller than the difference between either and any other software. Windows Phone, Symbian, any number of lesser cell phones are much more difficult to switch to or from when the alternative is switching to Android or iPhone from the other. This article is but one of several in a series written by your humble narrator called "I'm switching to iPhone 4S for a week," this series having the alternate title "iPhone 4S Up Close and Personal."
