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.


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:


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.


Apple is tracking our location via iPhone, but why? [Video]

It is now confirmed that Apple is storing location informations of every iPhone users. Peter Warden and Alasdair Allan have found out that iOS have a database storing information of the location of iPhone and is taking a snap of the location almost every minute.

The picture which you have seen on top, is the location information store by iPhone from one of the creator of iPhoneTracker, who have create an application to let you import the location data that your iPhone is storing and displaying in a map format.

I have downloaded the software, and have load the map with my location information, and it is just pure amazing. It really did record down my whole Taiwan Trip on Oct 2010 and the more recent US trip on March 2011

Taiwan Trip 2010:

My recent US Trip on March 2011:

Interesting yeah? I have no idea, Apple can map my journey so well, it can almost be used as a proof if I ever have to show my location at any point of time. But why is Apple doing this? All this location information did not expire after almost 1 year. Why do Apple need to keep location information of their users for such a long time?

Apple have not gave us any information or reply on this issue.

Check out the video of the creator of iPhoneTracker:
