[Review] The Newest Waterproof Case On The Market: Introducing The Escape Capsule...

image

Introducing the Escape Capsule by Catalyst. This latest entry into the relatively exclusive field of waterproof cases does the job and does it with style. I've recently been able to test out this case, (which officially start shipping tomorrow, 6/12/2012) and having spent some hands-on time with it, I especially appreciated the Escape Capsule's minimalist approach to the waterproof case design format, among other things. This case is the "glass house” of waterproof cases. More than any other waterproof case, this case highlights your iPhone in all of its elegance and grace.



Apple introduces iOS 6, available this fall

image

In a presenation filled with detail, Apple introduced iOS 6 today, with 200 new features. It will be available this fall for the iPhone 3GS and later, the iPad 2 and 3, and the fourth generation iPod touch. Ten of the new features were demoed, and they all look pretty exciting. The changes to Siri seem the most remarkable. You can now ask Siri specific questions related to sports (scores, stats, standings, etc.), restaurants (nearby restaurants, maps, hours, prices, reviews -- even make reservations), and movies (reviews, locations and times -- and even view the trailer right within Siri).



WWDC: iOS 6 update

iOS 6 has over 200 new features, including the following: Siri will now be able to report sports scores and player stats, team rankings and more.



Apple and Microsoft Come Together in Polaris Office!

Polaris Office is a pretty unique app of its kind.  To sum it up, it allows Apple users with devices such as the iPad or iPhone to access and edit Microsoft Office documents.  Of course, it's a lot more extensive than just that; but this is why it has become one of the most popular business apps to date.  As for its cost, many people believe that the worth definitely meets its value. 



WWDC Keynote

Tim Cook went through the numbers. Over 60 countries represented at WWDC. Over 400 million iTunes store customers, over 650,000 apps. 225,000 specifically for the iPad. 30 billion downloaded apps and counting and over five billion dollars paid out to developers!








WWDC coverage: Mac OS Mountain Lion and iOS 6

image
We are here at Apple's worldwide developers conference aka WWDC and the excitement is in the air. Already, from the banners hanging in the hall we know to look for a new version of iOS, specifically iOS 6. But once inside on my way to the keynote, there were more banners introducing features like Messages for Mac OS Mountain Lion, so apple users can communicate by text messaging using all of their apple devices, and avoid carrier fees.





iPhone Life at WWDC

image
Another year, another WWDC but alas, this time no Steve Jobs. I'm sure it will be eventful but I'm sure it will be bittersweet this year. I'm expecting a revamp of the MacBook Pro line, but I would also like to see updates to the Mac mini and Mac Pro. A new iPhone might be premature, as we all expected one at WWDC a year ago, but it was not to be. It seems like the Fall is the cycle Apple is working from, for iPhone updates.



iOS 6 to be announced Monday at WWDC

image

Apple will be offering the keynote at the WorldWide Developers Conference on Monday in San Francisco, and everyone is eagerly anticipating what they will announce. A CNET photographer snapped a photo of a large iOS 6 banner at the venue where the event is being held, so it's now confirned that Apple will be announcing the latest software for the iPhone and iPad. Not much is known about it, though everyone is expecting a new Maps app. Also, a lot of blogs are betting that we'll see Siri for the iPad. I hope they're right.



What I played this week - Ichi and more gaming news

image

This week, I review Ichi; advanced pong/puzzle game rising fast in app store popularity, and as about as simple as a game can get and still provide devilishly mind-twisting fun. Also, some important news: for those who have heard me ranting but not yet sampled the Galaxy on Fire 2 space adventure (SD version)--99 cents for a very limited time (expires June 15th, 2012) so do not tarry too overlong to snag it. In other iOS gaming news, Bank Job side-runner freebie has been released, and a new 3D racer called Bounty Racer coming this summer. I hope to review both in an upcoming WIPTW column, time permitting. Read on for the Ichi review and full game news releases...
