Apple’s Mobile Software and Retail Chiefs Announce Departure

By on Nov 2, 2012 in iPhone | 0 comments

Things have been relatively quiet for Apple this year, considering. The last couple of years have seen complaints surface over the treatment of workers at the Chinese manufacturing plants that produce their popular mobile devices (not to mention the fact that they outsource these jobs in the first place), and they lost their beloved CEO and visionary, Steve Jobs, at the end of last year, but 2012 has not delivered much news on the Apple front. Of course, the iPhone 5 finally fell into the hands of consumers after months of waiting. So that’s good news for the penultimate tech mogul. And the iPad mini is set to release well ahead of the holidays. Well, there was also that uproar over maps. Okay, apparently the company can’t go long at all without making some headlines and shaking things up. And the latest grist for the rumor mill is that they’re tossing chief...

New Apple iPhone Patent Makes Components Invisible

By on Oct 16, 2012 in iPhone | 0 comments

About a decade ago, it might have been cause for a legitimate double-take if someone were to tell you in casual conversation that Apple was developing a new technology that would essentially make components of a mobile phone invisible when they’re not being used. Of course, it would also be equally as unbelievable to hear that Google (just a simple search engine ten years ago) was developing transparent glasses that would allow for a computer-interfaced augmented reality experience, or had already successfully created a driverless car. These things, however, are all a reality today, and what’s fascinating is how relatively unsurprising these ridiculously advanced technologies are to those of us who have grown up with the more recent technological advancements. Since the introduction of the iPhone in June of 2007, Apple has successfully maintained its status as a developer...

The new iPhone 4 is different from the previous versions in both physical as well as software specifications. Some of the most prominent differences are: 1) The display size has been changed from 480×320 to 960×640; which makes the density of pixels per inch much greater than before which results in sharper and crisper images. The new retinal display adds excellent image quality to the iPhone 4 and you would be able to read text on the new iPhone like on a fine print book without any jagged edges. 2) The camera has also been improved a lot from the previous versions. The new iPhone 4 has a 5 megapixel camera as compared to the 3 megapixel camera of iPhone 3GS. The improvement in camera features is also a step forward for the Apple iPhone...
