SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up, May 5th 2011

This morning, we are looking forward to the Samsung Event at 4pm EST. Will it be the Infuse? Will they announce a date for the Galaxy S II for the US? The hot new phone has been selling like crazy in South Korea, and our review unit knocked our socks off. We'll be sure to let you know what happens at the event. Meanwhile, Samsung has revealed a "hybrid tablet" with SENS-240 navigation. But how useful is it, really? The incomparable Chris Davies has a great column this morning analyzing Verizon's Bliss "phone for ladies". Really Verizon? Aren't we ladies smart enough to download our own apps? Also, Acer news, ARM chips, Microsoft denying updates and taking on Apple (again), the NOOKcolor 3G, Anonymous and other hackers, and much more after the cut.

OS X Lion release via Mac App Store as Apple puts DVDs on notice?

Apple is already delivering developer version of OS X Lion via the Mac App Store, but according to the latest leaks the company plans to distribute the full version through its download store too. AppleInsider's sources claim Apple intends to make the Mac App Store the "preferred method" for distributing OS X 10.7 Lion, the Mac OS update expected to arrive this summer, with a physical version only for those with connections too slow for the download or who, for whatever reason, prefer not to download.

OS X Lion getting iOS-style uninstalls for Mac App Store

OS X Lion getting iOS-style uninstalls for Mac App Store

Apple has already made installing apps on OS X more like on iOS, thanks to the Mac App Store, and now the company is apparently looking to do the same for uninstalling software. The latest OS X Lion developer build - seeded on April 29 - has a new app uninstallation process, Apple iGuide spotted, similar to what you'd find on the iPad or iPhone: call up the Launchpad, long-click on the app's icon, a cross appears in the corner, and you click that to remove it.

Seamless makes moving your music…seamless

Say you were listening to music on your iPhone in the car, or when out for a run. You get home, and want to start the song up on your Mac. You may think you would have to start the song over, yes? Or spend time ffing to the place you left off? No. All you need to do is get a new app, called Seamless. Seamless works both ways, letting you easily move back and forth between iTunes on your phone or your Mac without missing a beat.

Opera Mac App Store 17+ rating too low jibes browser VP

Opera Mac App Store 17+ rating too low jibes browser VP

Opera has become the first non-native web browser to arrive in the Mac App Store, and as per Apple's normal policies has been slapped with a 17+ age rating. That's not upsetting VP of desktop products Jan Standal, however, who sees the classification - deemed necessary by Apple since all the filthy internet is viewable through a browser - as the perfect opportunity for a joke. "I'm very concerned," Standal says, "seventeen is very young, and I am not sure if, at that age, people are ready to use such an application."

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Strings inside Apple's iOS 4.3 beta firmware that'll be used on Apple TV have been shown to display clues leading to one possibility: the ability to play games on Apple TV without having to jailbreak first. An anonymous tipster speaking with Engadget has revealed the following references: "ATVGames" and "ATVThunder," both of them inside iOS 4.3 beta 3, as well as "com.apple.appletv.play.live.thunder" and ".play.archive.thunder." What's all that junk mean? It might be nothing of too much interest, but what these tipsters may have found are clues to a controller, a set of game leaderboards, a way to schedule games, and a storefront.

Apple iPad vs HP TouchPad tablet Matchup

Apple iPad vs HP TouchPad tablet Matchup

Today we were treated to a presentation by HP that might completely turn webOS around, out of the dark spaces of everyone's doubt centers and into a very plausible option place for many soon-to-be seekers of tablets in this new market. The tablet in question is the HP TouchPad, running webOS 3.0 and looking like not a half bad idea for a workstation on the go. We decided to match it up against a couple contenders, first the Motorola XOOM Android tablet, now the Apple iPad. How does the TouchPad measure up? You be the judge.

iPad Radiology App for Mobile Diagnosis Approved by FDA

iPad Radiology App for Mobile Diagnosis Approved by FDA

Incase you are from outer space and do not know, FDA stands for US Food and Drug Administration, and they've just approved an app that'll work on both iPad and iPhone (and we assume iPod Touch too, since that's generally what happens,) that last surfaced when it won the Apple Design Award for "Best iPhone Healthcare & Fitness Application" in 2008. This app, the FDA notes, "is not intended to replace full workstations and is indicated for use only when there is no access to a workstation."
