Is this iPhone 5? [Rumors]

Is this iPhone 5?

Apple’s latest Photo Stream Beta might accidentally leaked the new iPhone’s design. Look below and you will see an instruction for Apple’s Photo Stream, but look closely at the iPhone icon. It is not iPhone 4’s design, nor any previous iPhone design.

 

Looks like something that we have seen before?

I’m not sure if you have notice, but don’t it look very similar to thisismynext’s design concept for the next iPhone? I didn’t believe Apple’s next iPhone design will look like what thisismynext drawn out, but with this icon. It seems like the design is really close to what they have.

 

Apple’s Design grows on you

Nevertheless, let’s wait patiently for Apple’s keynote, and see what does then next iPhone looks like. I’m very confident Apple’s design will grow on you. I used to think iPhone 4’s design look weird, but after using it for a few months. iPhone 3GS’s design look very kiddy to me, where as iPhone 4 looks very solid and professional.

 

 


Hitler’s comment to Apple losing another iPhone Prototype in Bar [Video]

Seriously Apple or Seriously Media? It is abit hard to believe! CNet reported that Apple might have lost yet another iPhone prototype in a bar in San Francisco! It is too hard for me to believe, as I’m sure after the previous incident, Apple should be having alot of precaution.

According to CNet:

A day or two after the phone was lost at San Francisco’s Cava 22, which describes itself as a “tequila lounge” that also serves lime-marinated shrimp ceviche, Apple representatives contacted San Francisco police, saying the device was priceless and the company was desperate to secure its safe return, the source said. Still unclear are details about the device, what version of the iOS it was running, and what it looks like.

Apple electronically traced the phone to a two-floor, single-family home in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood, according to the source.

When San Francisco police and Apple’s investigators visited the house, they spoke with a man in his twenties who acknowledged being at Cava 22 on the night the device went missing. But he denied knowing anything about the phone. The man gave police permission to search the house, and they found nothing, the source said.

Anyway, let’s hear out Hitler’s view on Apple losing another iPhone Prototype:


Steve Jobs Life in Animation [Video]

 

 

 

Next Media Animation created a new video dedicated to Steve Jobs, summaring his life and his career in 2 minutes worth of animation. Although as usual, Next Media have their own take of what happened and made the animation overly exaggerated. but they have their humor.

Steve Job’s Life in Animation

In the animation, Steve Jobs took LSD and attained spiritual enlightenment. Together with Steve Wozniak they came out with their own product Macintosh and setup their own company called Apple.  But things did not went well with him, Steve Jobs was bounced out of his own company by John Sculley, who was hired by himself from Pepsi.

Pixar and Toy Story

Steve Jobs is not someone who gave up, he started up a new animation company Pixar and produced ‘Toy Story’ and was a great hit in film industry. Disney then bought Pixar up and this made Steve Jobs the single largest shareholder of Disney till today. Steve Jobs later was setup a new company which was bought up by Apple, in the end pushed him to be the new CEO of Apple.

Post-PC Era created single handily by Steve Jobs

That’s when Steve Jobs lead Apple to produced iMac, iPod, iPhone then iPad. Now Apple is the leading IT company around in terms of innovations, and Steve Jobs retired as CEO.

Piolo iPhone 4 Stand Give Away (Singapore)

Remember Piolo? Piolo is an iPhone 4 stand which you can use to prop up your iPhone in landscape and also portrait. This is especially useful when you are on a plane or at your desk and tries to watch a movie.

Piolo guys has been very kind, and they have sent to us to review. So first look of Piolo iPhone 4 stand that it is very light and easy to bring around with. It don’t use up much space, so it won’t be a problem bring it around. But one issue that I encounter is that Piolo fit to your iPhone 4 so well that, if you are using a case for your iPhone, you don’t support it that well. It is kind of the down side, but every other thing works very well.

Giveaways! 3 of them!

Just like our UsingApple Facebook Fan Page, and leave a comment to us which colour you want. We have Pink, Blue and Yellow to be chosen.

Ran 21km to create this Apple logo in Japan

 

This is very cool, media producer and marathon runner Joseph Tame ran 21km in Japan in order to create this Apple logo track with his iPhone. Of course this is not his first time doing runs like this, but this run is specially for Steve Jobs who recently quit as CEO of Apple.

He said:

It’s for this that I’d like to personally show my appreciation to Steve for his vision and leadership, which has made a direct positive impact upon my life.

This morning’s run, which spanned central Tokyo, took me first down the western side of the Imperial Palace, across to Roppongi, through Omotesando, then up to Shinjuku. The leaf is in Kagurazaka, and the start/finish point just by the entrance to Yasukuni Shrine.

Let’s hope that Steve Jobs’ health will get better, we really wish to see more of him.

 


iOS 5 will send out early earthquake notification to iPhone users in Japan

iOS 5 with Earthquake notification

We geeks love Technology, but nothing beats saving people’s life via Technology. In Future, Japanese iPhone users using iOS 5 will be able to receive early earthquakes notification! This will not only allow them to have more time to prepare for the natural diaster, it can also help warn people nearby. This kind of technologies really warms my heart.

Japan has the most advanced earthquake early-warning system in the world. A nationwide online system launched in 2007, it detects tremors, calculates an earthquake’s epicenter and sends out brief warnings from its 1,000-plus seismographs scattered throughout the country, one of the most earthquake-prone nations on the planet.

Apple helping Japan

I’m totally impressed with what Apple is doing to help Japan who was hammered by natural disasters in recent months. They have not only open Apple Store in Japan during diaster period to help charge iPhone/iPad and Macs, they even offer free water damaged iDevices due to Tsunami. Good Job Apple, keep it up!


Taiwanese NextMedia created Animation on Google’s purchase of Motorola

Google Purchased Motorola Mobility

iPhone the Number 1 Smartphone for 3 years, more to come?

iPhone, the most popular smartphone

Most popular smartphone for the past 3 years? If this question is asked, I’m sure most will answer iPhone. Yes, iPhone have been the most popular smartphone since 2009, and still remains as the most popular. Since a few years ago, iPhone slowly grew from a small market share, to now almost all my friends are using one.

Millennial Media, did a report and ranked all smartphone by impression. Only iPhone and Blackberry Curve stayed in the chart for 12 months. So I’m pretty sure in 2-3 years down the road, iPhone will still be in this chart.

Apple’s Advantages

But how did Apple achieved this? From my point of view, Apple have a very strong advantage of having control of both Hardware and Software of the iPhone. Not only software works well, it works very well with the phone. Android, one of iPhone’s strongest competitor now, is not having this benefit. Thus sparks off Google’s recent purchase of Motorola Mobility. Now Google’s Android will have some control over their hardware and all of their software. This will put Android in a stronger position.

So will we see both iPhone and Android Phone on the chart in the next 3 years? Let’s Stay tuned.

Facebook for iPad leaked!

One of the most important App that is still missing on iPad till today is Facebook App. Currently, we can only get Facebook for iPhone/iPod Touch, but there is no native app for iPad. Although u can say that you will still have a very nice browsing experience on mobile Safari on iPad, but nothing can beat the customization and viewing experience on an native App.

Facebook for iPad is finally coming to App Store soon?

MG Siegler from TechCrunch actually found out that Facebook for iPad might be launch very soon, but I kid you not, an executable Facebook for iPad is already on your Facebook App for iPhone! So if that’s the case, then it might be a universe app for Facebook.

Overall the view of the App seems very clean and cool, I already love the UI of the App even before using. Let’s hope that we won’t have to wait too long for it to be launch, I’m kind of tired of using 3rd party apps which don’t really run as good as the one that I got on my iPhone.

More pictures below, or you can visit TechCrunch for all the screenshot of the app.
