One of the coolest things I saw at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year was the Rift, virtual reality goggles from developers Oculus. Oculus takes the science of vision and applies it to virtual reality gaming in an arena that will be intimately familiar to any fan of iOS gaming.



RØDE iXY Review - Quality iPhone and iPod Recording Accessory

image
I often use my iPod touch for grabbing quick home recording tracks, and one of my favorite accessories used to be the Blue Mikey from Blue Microphones. But when an Apple iOS update killed analog input, my original Mikey became a thing of the past.
 
The RØDE iXY is a similar recording accessory, but is more specifically designed. While Blue makes great mics for music, RØDE is tailored to live broadcasting. The unique RØDE iXY can capture an outdoor live event or a basement recording jam at very high-quality sample rates!

As the developer of several video enhancer tools for the iPhone 3GS, 4, and 4S (see THIS for more info on them), as soon as I've jailbroken the iPhone 5 with the just-released “evasi0n” tool, I started looking into enhancing its camera.

Overhaul of iOS Rumored; Interface could Reflect Younger Generation

image

I read an interesting article in Wired recently about the likelihood of a major redesign of iOS, Apple's software that runs our iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches. Speculation began when Apple replaced Scott Forestall with Jony Ive to head up iOS interface design. Forestall, like Steve Jobs, loved skeuomorphic design, which harks back to real world objects of the past.



iPhone 5S rumors include mockup of 5-inch iPhone

image

The smartphone industry is moving so fast, offering such a variety of models that if Apple releases an iPhone 5S in June, as is rumored, it appears destined to be a letdown. Apple typically makes changes in the form factor every two years, but often makes internal upgrades in between. A great article on 9To5Mac, titled, "Can Apple get away with another 'S' iPhone?" questions whether this sort of incremental upgrade this year will be enough to impress consumers.
