Photojojo is selling a pair of iPad adapters that allow you to pull images from CF and SD cards straight to your tablet. Sadly, the SD reader is sold out right now – but I contacted the company this morning and they say they’re expecting more!
It was ten years ago today that Apple unveiled the iPod personal mp3 player. The first model was $399 and only compatible with Mac computers. It had a mere 5GB of storage.
My, how things change in just a decade.
Apple is closing all of its official retail shops today – at least in the United States – between the hours of 10:00am to 11:30am Pacific time in honor of Steve Jobs’ memorial service.
This is presumably to give employees a chance to tune in and to remind customers that the world lost one of its great technological visionaries this month.
One of the enhancements that Apple made with the iPhone 4S is the addition of the ability to record video in 1080p. What might surprise you, however, is that the quality of the recordings is on par with a $3,000 Canon DSLR.
Apple reported this morning that they’ve already sold more than 4,000,000 iPhone 4S units without breaking a sweat. This is no doubt a direct result of both Verizon and Sprint offering the latest iOS powered handset. Steve Jobs would be proud.
One of the apps quietly released alongside iOS5 this past week was iTunes Movie Trailers. I just gave it a go and it’s honestly one of the coolest apps I’ve ever used.
But it isn’t just the fact that it gives you access to the giant library of trailers on Apple’s servers that makes this such a kick-ass app. No, it actually enables you to buy tickets, find nearby theaters, and even chart film releases on a calendar.
As far as I know, there are no other apps across any mobile platform that can do all of that a.) for free or b.) as cleanly as this one. It’s a must for anyone who owns an iOS device.
Yesterday, Rockstar blew minds with the announcement that they’re bringing Grand Theft Auto III to iOS and Android devices. The only problem with that was the fact that their list of supported devices was basically restricted to only the newest hardware.
In response to questions, however, Rockstar had good news: they’re going to add support for single core iOS devices in the future.
According to a new report from The New York Times published today, Google might finally be preparing to launch an iTunes competitor more than six months after launching their cloud streaming service. Google isn’t commenting yet but the report says that they’re in talks with all of the major record labels about distribution rights.
