Latest rumor: iPhone 5 to use Liquidmetal for case

image

There's not a lot of substance to this rumor, just a brief report on a Korean tech news website attributing the information to industry sources: "According to industry sources, the next flagship phones of the companies are expected to adopt unprecedented materials for their main bodies, that is, ceramic for the Galaxy S3 and liquid metal for iPhone 5, both being thin, light and highly resistant to external impacts." In fact, in 2010 Apple did purchase exclusive rights to use a new material named Liquidmetal in consumer devices, but has so far only used it in a S



Best free apps for the iPhone

Lists of best apps are exceedingly useful. You find out what people like the best and don't have to take the time to try a lot of apps to see what the really good ones are. And one of the best lists of free apps that I've seen is iMore's recent list of Best free iPhone apps. Many of my favorites are here and are apps that I would also recommend.



The future of printing is 3D according to Sculpteo

Forget 3D movies and television, the real future is 3D printing! It's not cheap, yet, but the folks at Sculpteo are trying to pioneer a new way to create truly personalized items from ceramic and other materials. Naturally, they have an app for that, and it supports the iPad as well. It lets you choose from an existing collection of designer-created 3D printable objects or create a personalized item like a mug with your child's silhouette built-in or an iPhone case with your custom message. I'm tempted to say the custom images or text are embossed, but that's technically inaccurate. The item is crafted in 3D with your edits. You have to see it to understand, and you can download the app for free and play with it.


Pushing Weight Review - Track your Pump!

image

I have exercised consistently for more than 20 years, especially with weights. One thing I've learned is that if you want to get results and keep them, you need to adopt and stick to a structured plan. A personal trainer is really the best way to get on the right track and stay there, but not everyone has access to that kind of resource (never had one, myself). A motivated and knowledgeable training partner is nearly as good, if not better in some cases. With a plan and a partner, now all you need is a way to journal and track your workouts. If you have an iPhone or iPod touch, Pushing Weight makes it pretty simple to plan and keep track of your pump!

The dream is a children's story about the main character named Ahmad and his adventure.  The book can be either read by kids, or the app will read it to the children making it a fun app for kids from about age two through twelve.  In addition to the story this app includes a 'fact find' section where you can tap on highlighted words while reading the story to learn some fun facts such as what different words mean.  There is also a 'happy bazzar' which is a place to find related apps quickly and easily.  There are several related apps to choose from and with a quick tap you'll be taken right to the app store.
