Targus iPad 2 Rotating Case

Targus iPad 2 Rotating Case/Stand

Targus came out with quite a innovative iPad 2 Case, which allow you to hold up your iPad 2 not just in Landscape mode, but also in Portrait mode. This is something that we have not seen much on other available case for iPad 2.

But why Portrait? I’m thinking there are a few use cases that might be very useful in portrait mode. For example if you doing cooking, and your Cook Book PDF is in Portrait, it is easy to read if your iPad 2 is standing up in a portrait mode. How about drawing a portrait drawing?  Equally useful.

Expensive, but Flexible

Of course the best thing is Targus’s Rotating iPad 2 Case, can be used in both mode, thus you gain the flexibilty in using your beloved iPad 2. So what’s bad? What I feel is the price tag, at SGD$99.90, it is quite a expensive iPad case.If it cheaper, I will definitely recommend this iPad 2 Case due to the flexibility.

You might be able to make calls on jailbroken iPad 3G soon [Video]

Soon you might be able to make calls on your jailbroken iPad 3G, all thanks to iPhoneIslam. They have come out with a new hack called PhoneItiPad. It is reported that it might be in the Cydia App Store even before WWDC, which will be on 6 June 2011.

So how does it works? It works exactly like an iPhone, everything. So just imagine your iPhone now have a 9.7 inch screen and that’s what you will get with this hack. You can not only make phone calls, FaceTime, you can even SMS.  Pretty cool and I’m sure it comes in handy at times.

Check out the demo video of it:

What we might see in Apple’s WWDC2011

Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference 2011 is just round the corner. Apple for the past few WWDC has been very focus on showing and telling the developers what is up and coming for the year. But they also did not forget the consumers, and always take the chance to introduce new products.

So what will we see in this year’s WWDC?

  • iOS 5 – Yes, Finally we will have a preview of what iOS 5 will be. It might be more tabletish, having more multi-tasking features, more features to make use of the screen real estate of iPad.
  • Lion OS – Lion has been one of the main focus for the past 2 conference Apple held. This will be the final one, showing us the final product of what Lion will look like.
  • iPhone 4S – I think iPhone 4S will not ship so soon, because White iPhone 4 just launched not long ago, but who knows Apple might surprise us with a new iPhone
  • Macbook Air – MBA has been a success, and it is close to its refresh period. Thus we might see a Macbook Air with Thunderbolt and Sandy Bridge
  • Mac Pro – Apple recently killed XServe, and Mac Pro is the “replacement”. I’m thinking Apple will redesign Mac Pro to be “mountable” so as to better used in Data Center

Let’s hope we will have a exciting WWDC2011!

Explosion at Foxconn’s Apple iPad 2 Plant

Exploision at Apple's iPad 2 Plant in China

An Explosion happened at Foxconn’s Chengdu Manufacturing Plant, this plant is where Apple’s iPad 2 is made. It is reported that the explosion happened inside an “operation room”, but we are not sure what do they do in the room.

There’s no confirmation on what cause the explosion, and how many casualties, but more than 10 fire engines, ambulances and police car were seen.

The factory is now sealed off by police, and no reporters are allowed to go near the plant as it is still not safe, and might have a possibility for a second explosion.

Hopefully no one is seriously injured, and hopefully no death.

Check out the video of explosion scene:


Creative Video played over 3 iPhone Screen – Trapped in an iPhone [Video]

One of the most creative videos I have seen shot purely on iPhone. Why? Because it is actually a video that needs to be played in 3 different iPhones then you will understand what is it actually trying to do.

We can see that Ronen Verbit and Vanya Polunin spent alot of time trying to choreograph this video as it is not easy to shoot the videos for the iPhone, it is also not easy to shoot the video while playing the video they shot. Confusing? Just watch the video and you will understand.

Camera and Flash to be separated in iPhone 4S?

iPhone 4’s Camera is still one of the best in Mobile Phone market, no doubt the picture quality is the best. But one of the weakest point of the camera is the flash. Although Flash helped in night/dark photography on iPhone 4, but it almost always overexpose the picture or cause the photo to have a very white patch in the top area of the photo.

Thus the next iPhone, iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 is rumored to have Camera and Flash separated, thus to reduce the overexposure and hopefully take better night photos. Below is a mock up of iPhone 4S with Camera and Flash separated by Apple.pro.
