The website iMore reported earlier today that the iPhone 5, iPad Mini, and iPod Nano will be presented at an event on September 12 and that the iPhone 5 will be available for purchase on September 21. iMore says the information comes from a source that previously gave them accurate information about earlier product launches. While the source didn't say anything about an iPod touch, iMore speculates that a new version will likely also be announced.



Siri and Me: Caught in a Bad Romance

image

 

I dare you not to have that Lady Gaga song stuck in your head now!

(Sorry, I had to share it. It’s all I’ve been humming as I write this post for you guys.)

It was love at first sight when I met Siri. Here was someone (something?) who took care of me. She was smart and understood my needs. I saw those ads on TV—the ones where people are having a conversation with Siri, and she’s taking dictation, finding directions, making calls.

“YES!” I thought. I do all those things. I had to have Siri too!  So I got myself a nice new iPhone.



Let Birds Transfer Your Photos

image

There I was on Thursday listening to Leo Laporte's podcast that I had downloaded on my iPhone. One of his guests was talking about a new app called Chirp. It's an app that transfers photos and some types of data by sound from one iOS device to another.

"But I can do that through iMessage or by e-mail" I hear you say....and you are right.

So it seems we're now in the phase of the rumor mill when purported photos begin to appear online. Business Insider has posted front and back photos of an alleged iPhone 5 that originated from a Chinese case manufacturer claiming to have one of the phones in hand. The phone appears to match the rumors we've been hearing, with a taller screen and the front-facing camera located in the center. There have now been a couple rumors suggesting that the launch will be in September, with one rumor specifying September 21.

Weekly App Review - Utility Roundup and Chrome Shakedown!

image

Was able to check out 3 new handy utilities this week, and the new so-called Chrome for iOS browser, which is the Safari engine in a Chrome-like wrapper with a few added features that help if you are already drinking the Goog kool-aid. I have come to rely heavily on Safari, and IMO, Chrome mobile did not impress at all. About the only thing I liked was being able to get to my bookmarks, but it performed too chaotically to be useful. Also in this post, I cover some handy lightweight remote control apps (PC HUD and OFF) that let you monitor, stop or restart a PC or Mac from your iDevice, and a really decent calc/notepad app (CalcTape) for running accounting tallies and similar number-crunching tasks. As a bonus, I'll round up 3 of my fav free utilities at the end! Perfect end to a review roundup...



Two HDMI to VGA solutions, for Apple TV and more

image
For a long time now, I have lamented the absence of a solution for converting HDMI to VGA, so I could project from my Apple TV or from an iPad using Apple's HDMI cable instead of their VGA cable. Why? Primarily because the VGA cable does not allow a way to charge the iPad when in use, whereas the HDMI version has a 30 pin female connector so you can plug in a syncing cable. Additionally, since most office projectors accept VGA, not HDMI, this has been the missing link for many professionals. As they say, when it rains, it pours. In recent weeks, I've received two such devices that convert HDMI to VGA and they each have their pros and cons.
