Amazing video shot on iPhone showing guitar’s string oscillation [Video]

This is plain amazing. I have seen countless people played guitar infront of me and infront of TV. Never once did I see how the string’s of guitar actually react to guitarist strum.

This young guitar, put an iPhone 4 into his guitar, and recorded how string oscillate when you strum on guitar. He actually accidentally found it out when he was trying to record his guitar playing via an iPhone 4. Be sure to check out the video as it is really very cool.

 


Apple’s New Ads – AirPlay & FaceTime make it an iPhone [Video]

2 new iPhone 4 Ads

Apple just launched 2 new TV Ads for iPhone 4, advertising the power of AirPlay and FaceTime. Honestly, I think this might be the 2 newest and most unused feature that iPhone 4 have, which users might have forgotten or not knowing the function at all.

I feel that it is good that Apple remind us the users again on this 2 new features and showing us the way it might be useful to us. AirPlay is really a very useful feature especially if you want to share or show pictures or videos to everyone on a large screen. FaceTime is always there when I wish to see my mom’s face.

This 2 features might not be as important as calling or smsing,but when you need it and it is there. The feeling is great. So enjoy the 2 new ads by Apple:

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:

iPhone 4’s upload speed is faster than 4G Motorola Atrix

Users of Motorola Atrix complain that they ain’t getting very good speed with the phone although it is a 4G Phone. A test was done and the result shows that iPhone 4‘s upload speed is much faster than Atrix! But words on the street are saying the fault might not be Motorola or Google fault, but AT&T!  It seems like AT&T hasn’t enable the higher speed HSDPA+ radios on Android phone, but because Apple controls iPhone firmware and AT&T can’t touch it, thus the faster upload speed.

Check out the SPEED test video:
