The Next iPhone Is Not The 5, It’s The 4S!

Well Apple new CEO unveiled his first product for the company on October 4th, and it is an iPhone. Everyone including us was speculating for an revelutionary change in the phone but Apple just went into the next edition of  iPhone 4 the iPhone 4S. When the conference ended everyone was hoping there was more but all our thoughts went in vain. FOX NEWS just said ” We don’t want an another iPhone 4 ” and that was the saying of all other visitor and fans of Apple.

iPhone 5: Phil Schiller introduces the iPhone 4S

But clearly on the bright side Apple went guns blazing on the techie side of the product from it’s predecessor. And yes we do get an Dual Core A5 processor in the iPhone 4S. Well Samsung reign is in an wobbly shape after this. The new phone also gets an revamped iOS and it is the iOS 5. There are too much changes to this phone but its all technical. It is an new phone with an old form factor.

The iPhone 4S releases on Oct 14th, one day earlier from what we stated. And pre-ordering starts on Oct 7th. For more updates follow us on facebook and twitter. If you want to follow me as well http://twitter.com/#!/Sudharshan_Hi5 .

Apple’s iPhone 5 Unveiling On October 4th 2011

Its been the most highly anticipated topic search on for months. And it is finally happening on Tuesday October 4th 2011. Apple sent out many invites to people all over the world. In the invite it has four icons, one is an calendar icon marking the date when function is about to be held. Second it is the clock icon which is set on 10:00 AM PST, which is the time it will air. The third is an GPS map icon shows where the event is going to be held at their Coopertino HQ. The fourth and final one is an call icon “Which indicates the number 1 on the top” tell us only one phone that they are going to show. Well the last was our guessing.

Previously we got an information that two iPhones are releasing like super high-end iPhone 5 and an mid-end iPhone 4s or lite. But certainly we are not sure about the Number 1 on top but we will find it out on Oct 4th.

And before anyone say Apple might be releasing their iPhone in market by Oct 15th 2011 itself. Our guess two phones will be unveiled and only one might be releasing on Oct 15th. To know for sure lets wait till Oct 4th. We will keep posting what happens and do follow us on twitter and facebook. And if you guys want to follow me on twitter click here.

iPhone 5 Debut’s On September!

Apple just slightly told us that they were going to release the next-gen iPhone in sometime in 2011. But now we have an release date that it is off-course its September. Still there is no news on what we are expecting from Apple, yet we can never wish of Apple giving us flash support. But still this product makes us exciting after some controversies that it went over the ” Network Coverage problem”. The iPhone 4 was an piece of art in the modern World technology, whether you love or hate it. Will iPhone 5 will be as good looking as its predecessor? Well in September we will surely know about it.

The iPhone 5 come with Apple’s A5 processor and the iOS4 is now upgraded to iOS5. Apple also promised that due to the new powerful processor the battery life will not decrease and the iPhone will have the same 10hour battery life or even more. Due to the more powerful processor at hand Apple is now going for some 4G support. Yet 4G is in its early stages I doubt they would put this into it. What the heck anyway they would put it in iPhone 6. And Apple would be very keen on its slim factor and do some ways to make the battery thin because the processor is kinda power hungry. I’m sure that the next iPhone will be thinner and it would really have an bigger screen than iPhone 4.

Well these are the information that we got. If you guys have more information on this do tell us and share it with us by commenting below.

Apple Is Tracking Your Location With The Help Of Its Mobile Devices

Yes, recently it has been come to know that Apple can track your locations with the help of your iPhone’s and iPad’s. How? Because they have actually built the device with an tracker into it. This has offended many people that are using Apple’s products. Hey! everyone does needs some privacy here and there. So this actually caused an lot of issues and Mr. Jobs is questioned again for this problem and well, he started defending his company for it.

Jobs admitted in a New York Times interview Wednesday that the storing of location data was a mistake, but said the company wasn’t keeping tabs on its customers.

And Jobs said;

“We haven’t been tracking anybody,” Jobs said. “Never have. Never will.”

In a press release, Apple said that it didn’t receive location data for iPhone and iPad users, but rather signals from nearby Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers. The maps showing customer location history was called “a bug” that will be fixed in a free iTunes update soon.

The location data, according to Apple, “helps your iPhone rapidly and accurately calculate its location when requested.” After the update, the data cache will be saved for a maximum of seven days.But many people don’t believe Jobs’ explanation.The attacks against Apple built up quickly in the week following the release of an iPhone Tracker app that showed customers’ location history, including a lawsuit. “South Park” even had fun with it in an episode Wednesday night showing dark-suited men from Apple tracking down Cartman’s iPad and attempt to take his blood.

Well that episode was indeed really funny and sometime kinda make us think like are we being watched by some goofy guys over the internet? Well I sure don’t like to be tracked because I hate being tracked. Do tell us what you think of this misery that Apple created and what should be done by commenting below.

Those who are planning on getting the new White iPhone. Think again.

Why No Flash On Apple Products? Well, Steve Jobs Have Answers

For all these years every one was wondering, why Apple is not supporting Adobe flash on its line up of products? Everyone was criticizing Apple for it. Well its about time to let you know why for all these days they were holding back because Steve Jobs answers to it.

And Adobe recently pointed out that “Apple released a new draft of their iPhone developer program license which  had the effect of restricting applications built with a number of technologies, including Unity, Titanium, MonoTouch, and Flash CS5?.

Then Kevin Lynch, Adobe CTO revealed that they “have already decided to shift our focus away from Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices for both Flash Player and AIR. We are working to bring Flash Player and AIR to all the other major participants in the mobile ecosystem, including Google, RIM, Palm (soon to be HP), Microsoft, Nokia and others.”

Well whatever Adobe or any others say Steve has his own theories and what he said is quoted below.

Steve Jobs says that;

  1. While Adobe’s Flash products are widely available, this does not mean they are open, since they are controlled entirely by Adobe and available only from Adobe. By almost any definition, Flash is a closed system…. Rather than use Flash, Apple has adopted HTML5, CSS and JavaScript – all open standards.
  2. Adobe has repeatedly said that Apple mobile devices cannot access “the full web” because 75% of video on the web is in Flash. What they don’t say is that almost all this video is also available in a more modern format, H.264, and viewable on iPhones, iPods and iPads.
  3. Symantec recently highlighted Flash for having one of the worst security records in 2009. We also know first hand that Flash is the number one reason Macs crash. We have been working with Adobe to fix these problems, but they have persisted for several years now.
  4. To achieve long battery life when playing video, mobile devices must decode the video in hardware; decoding it in software uses too much power. Many of the chips used in modern mobile devices contain a decoder called H.264….Although Flash has recently added support for H.264, the video on almost all Flash websites currently requires an older generation decoder that is not implemented in mobile chips and must be run in software.
  5. Flash was designed for PCs using mice, not for touch screens using fingers. For example, many Flash websites rely on “rollovers”, which pop up menus or other elements when the mouse arrow hovers over a specific spot. Apple’s revolutionary multi-touch interface doesn’t use a mouse, and there is no concept of a rollover.
  6. Flash is a cross platform development tool. It is not Adobe’s goal to help developers write the best iPhone, iPod and iPad apps. It is their goal to help developers write cross platform apps. And Adobe has been painfully slow to adopt enhancements to Apple’s platforms.

Well after myself discovering this made myself into the point of shock, that what he just said was absolutely true. This is why he is one of the greatest presenter in the planet. That’s why people believe and buy whatever he says. Well this is an good point by Steve and tell us your opinion about it by commenting below.
