Steve Jobs biopic to be three one-scene pre-keynotes

It would appear that the biggest-name biography movie surrounding the life and times of Steve Jobs, that being the one penned by Aaron Sorkin, will be played out in three 30-minute segments, each of them working as one single shot each. Each of these segments will work inside time behind the scenes right before the launches of the original Mac, the original iPod, and NeXT. This information was revealed this week at the Summit conference with Newsweek and The Daily Beast, Sorkin himself noting the format with little else for details.

New iPod Nano gets complete teardown

New iPod Nano gets complete teardown

Apple announced a completely-redesigned iPod Nano last month during its iPhone 5 event where the company also launched a new iPod Touch. We already saw iFixit's complete teardown of the new iPod Touch and the iPhone 5, so naturally it's now the new iPod Nano's turn up on the chopping block. And since the iPod Nano is so...nano-like, it doesn't take long for the explorers at iFixit to dismantle the thing.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 11, 2012

Welcome to Thursday evening, folks - just one more work day and the glorious weekend is here once again. This afternoon we heard that both the iPad Mini and the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro - neither of which officially exist yet, remember - have been delayed due to problems with component yields, but not long after, analysts were saying that the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is still on track to launch this year. Apple has managed to delay the ban of the iPhone and iPad in South Korea, and we learned that the company's new dock connector is nearly impossible to mod in a new teardown.

Apple goes Bounce with new iPod ad

Apple goes Bounce with new iPod ad

Apple has launched its new ad campaign for the latest iPod line, kicking off with a catchy thirty second commercial called "Bounce" showing the 5th-gen iPod touch and the 7th-gen iPod nano. The clip shows the two new iPods - and their unchanged shuffle sibling - being suitably enthusiastic about music, keeping to Apple's now-traditional theme of a more playful and less educational attitude to commercials for the media player range.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: October 11, 2012

This morning it's time for a redesign of Google's mobile homepage - for Android devices, anyway, and on Chrome mostly, as well as a new version of Google+ for both Android and iOS devices. Google has also begun recruiting Android "ambassadors" for their call center - people dedicated to the operating system in an intense way. The DoCoMo SH-02E ZETA is a brand new Android-based smartphone that's the first to use Sharp's own lovely IGZO display - intense!

iPod Touch 5th generation gets full teardown

iPod Touch 5th generation gets full teardown

It didn't seem like quite an official release day for the new iPod Touch, but yesterday was the day users started to receive their units in the mail. We even got our hands on one as well, but iFixit ended up gutting the device to see what was on the inside. They didn't find too many surprises, but they noted that the device's repairability was unsurprisingly lacking.

Parrot Zikmu Solo keeps the gigantic mobile accessory trend hot

With speaker docks getting as giant as a coffin this year for devices galore, it's no wonder that accessories like the Parrot Zikmu Solo are as living room-worthy as they are. What we've got with the Zikmu Solo is a tower-like speaker that works either wirelessly or connected to your iOS device - or any speaker-cord-capable device with 100W of power under its hood. This device works with stereo output, a single unit speaker, and three loudspeakers on the upper part - as described here in detail, of course.

New iPod Touch release date set for late October

New iPod Touch release date set for late October

During the iPhone 5 launch a couple weeks ago, Apple announced an update to its iPod Touch lineup that would include the same 4-inch screen as the iPhone 5. However, we were only given an "October" release date, so we weren't sure if we'd see them at the beginning of the month or more towards the end. Today, it's said that Australian users are seeing a ship date of "3 weeks" on Apple's website.
