In their report Concord Securities said the iPhone 5 will start shipping after Apple releases the iOS 5 golden master which is to be assembled in late September.
Kuo’s quote is ‘No Discernible Difference’ According to analyst the following claim brings us closer to the fact that Apple will name the upcoming iPhone “iPhone 4S”
As seen in the past with the iPhone 3g and iPhone 3gs.
Kuo’s claims that even with the same design Apple has made radical changes to the next generation iPhone and problems such as the “death grip” will not occur in the next iPhone.
As reported by a TwitPic all Apple retail stores are having an “all hands meeting” TONIGHT, which requires all employees to show up. But, there is a fun twist! All Apple’s retail store windows are being covered in black cloths to prevent people from seeing what is happening inside. Can it be the Verizon iPhone? We will find out 1/11!
UPDATE:: TUAW has to pointed out some interesting commentary:
Despite the unrelated coverup, we’re hearing that retail employees will have a meeting next weekend for the “red zone” — a code name given to the sales area of the floor. We’re also hearing of a possible new set up area, meaning you may see a part of stores set up to accommodate new iPhone purchasers get their phones activated. This would be great for Verizon customers suddenly flocking to Apple’s warm embrace, yes? At any rate, it’s more about the service than the product, both in the retail experience and on your network when you leave the store.
This morning Apple launched the App store for Mac which is either a blessing or a curse for users. However, it seems less then 24 hours after launch the DRM in the App Store has been figured out.
Install the latest Snow Leopard update(10.6.6). Sign into the new App Store (in your dock). Download Twitter, it’s free. Then go to Applications folder, locate Twitter, right click, Show Package Contents, navigate to Contents folder and copy _CodeSignature, _MASReceipt and CodeResources.
Download Angry Birds ( http://bit.ly/gy9wzk ).. run the dmg file.. drag Angry Birds into the Applications folder. right click, Show Package Contents, navigate to Contents folder and delete _CodeSignature, _MASReceipt and CodeResources. Now paste in the files you copied from the Twitter.app .
Done. Enjoy Angry Birds and any other .app file from the new Mac App Store that you can find online ;)
Now I can’t tell if its a hack, broken DRM or just a certificate issue with developers – but an interesting development none the less!
It’s a slower news day so time for a trip down MacOS memory lane.
I have been a Mac user since OS 6, and when you have been a Mac user as long as I have you get to know and love the old alert sounds. With every new OS release Apple eliminates a swath of their old alert sounds, from System 6 to System 7 we lost Clink-Clank and who could forget the hysterical Monkey noise. Over the other OS changes we lost ChuToy, Submarine, Laugh as well as the dearly missed Wild Eep to name a few.
Some alert’s even have their own back story – for example “Sosumi.” The sound’s unusual name was coined during a trademark dispute with the Beatles. The sound’s name also exists currently in an inside joke on Apple Computer’s website, where it marks the CSS class denoting a copyright notice #.
Anyway, might as download all these alert sounds and bring your modern machine back to the good ol days. Windows users don’t fret, they are encoded a WAV’s so you can join in on the fun.
I’m a guy that isn’t too find of quiet rooms. It makes me uncomfortable. When traveling I usually listen to music as I try to go to sleep. Problem is the music just plays for the whole night.
Thanks to a neat little option in the iOS Clock App – in the timer section you can have the Clock App sleep your iPod rather then playing a sound. So after an hour or so, you can have the music turn off.
Not sure if this is a well known feature, but it cool none the less.
Tired of the boring “Sent from my iPhone” or “Sent from my iPad” signatures on your emails?
With the free iPhone Signature Creator, you can create a cool colored and graphical HTML signature that also has links to all your online profiles.
Just fill out Signature Creator’s Web-based form, you can upload a logo or avatar in GIF or JPEG format and tie it to a URL.
The form also gives you the option of adding links or icons to your Facebook, FaceTime, LinkedIn, Skype, or Twitter accounts.
Be sure you don’t overlook the last field where you choose a PIN, otherwise the form will reset and you’ll have to do the entire thing over. (I speak from experience.)
When you’re done, click Create Signature. You’ll see a completion page with a URL you need to enter into Safari on your device. (You can also have that link sent to you via e-mail.) When you do so, the resulting page will ask you for the pin you entered in the Web form. Type it, but before you tap Go, tap the Plus sign at the bottom of the screen, then tap Add to Home Screen.
Now, whenever you want to compose an e-mail that has your sexy new signature, just tap that new Home screen icon.
