White iPhone 4 is slightly thicker than Black!

Yes, quite a few new owners of White iPhone 4 mentioned that their phone is slightly thicker than black iPhone 4. Look at the above picture, and we can clearly see that it is really thicker, but just by a slight. All iPhone 4 cases are reported to fit nicely to white iPhone 4, so you won’t have to worry about it.

I think white iPhone 4’s plastic is slightly thicker might be due to the light leak issue due to the white case and the iPhone 4’s Flash. Hopefully this solved the light leak issue, because I don’t mind a slightly thicker iPhone 4 than light leak photos from my iPhone

US President Obama is our fellow Apple Fan Boy? [Video]

Obama Love Apple’s Products

Is US President Barack Obama our fellow Apple Fan Boy? No, we aren’t just making it up, he loves Apple, or at least he love using Apple’s Product. We all know that US President Obama is one of the most tech-savvy president ever for United States. He used Twitter and Facebook during his champaign.

He is recently caught carrying his iPad 2 as he walks to Marine One. His iPad 2 is covered by a gray SmartCover, I’m just wondering what apps he uses. It is just plain cool to see one of the most powerful man on earth enjoying the same product as us. Below are the 2 video of him, one showing US citizen healthcare website using his Macbook Pro and one interview with Jorge Ramos asking President Obama whether he own an iPad.

This is how my next iPhone looks like? [Picture]

This is my next iPhone 5?

You might be new to thisismynext, but no, they are actually started up by previous Engadget team, Joshua Topolsky, Nilay Patel, Paul Miler and more. I’m kind of a fan of them, and this is their new temporary home. Put that aside for now, they have came out with the above iPhone 5 mock-up based on some source which they think is quite reliable.

Yes, it might be a totally new design, below are the summarize points:

  • Totally New Design, or not…: iPhone 4 have gotten quite a few bad comments on antenna and easily broken glass. So we might not be surprise Apple might wanna do a redesign of it.. But if you look closely at the mock-up, it looks very similar to iPod Touch’s design… So are we getting a similar to iPod Touch iPhone 5?
  • Gesture Sensitive Home Button: It is reported that Home Button will be bigger and will take in gestures, this is really quite new… I’m not really sure what kind of gestures it might understand. Swiping? Pushing? Holding on? Who knows?
  • No Bezel: I’m quite surprise bezel is removed! It means that Apple’s manufacturing technology is very high, else it might be very hard for them to achieve.
  • Larger Screen: Of course, without the bezel, we will be getting a larger screen at 3.7inch.
  • Inductive Charging: Honestly, I doubt this, inductive charging are not very environmental friendly. It wastes quite alot of extra energy to charge the same iPhone, so I doubt it as Apple is always looking at how green can they go.
  • Hidden earpiece & mouthpiece: Both of it are behind the glass, and not visible, given it’s Apple it is highly possible. I like it.
  • NFC: Maybe or may not come
  • Global radio Chips: Supports both CDMA and GSM

How do you think about the next iPhone you are getting? I think it is not bad in hardware design, how I’m more interested in seeing what we will be getting on iOS 5. Hope to get something totally new.

How GREEN is our iPhones?

To celebrate Earth day, geekaphone created a very well done infographics to show how green is our iPhones. To be honest, I feel that Apple is already one of the most environmental conscious company around. Most of their products have 5 star on green-ness. If you look at the info-graphics, you will see that Apple is still trying their best make their next product greener, look at iPhone 3G and iPhone 4, iPhone 4 emit 18% less CO2.

Take a look at the inforgraphics from geekaphone:

What we will see in iMac 2011? [Prediction]

It is almost time of the year for Apple to refresh their iMac line. So what will we see in the iMac 2011 line?

Some prediction by me:

  • Sandy Bridge CPU for all iMacs
  • i5 for iMac 21.5 inch, i7 default for 27″
  • 8gb ram default for 27 inch iMac
  • 1TB HDD for 21.5inch and 2TB HDD for 27″ iMac as default
  • Better Graphics, might even be nVidia
  • Higher resolution of screen
  • HD FaceTime Camera
  • Thunderbolt for all iMac

Anything else that I have missed out? I really hope SSD to be in 27″ as default, but I highly doubt so.

iPad is causing unemployment in US? [Video]

Are you sure you wanna blame iPad causing unemployment in US? I’m not so sure if I agree on what he have said, but if you say indirectly causing it… It might be still quite valid as almost all products nowadays are all manufacture in China.
