iPhone 4S to Launch with 5 Additional Regional U.S. Carriers on April 20

image

One of the reasons that Apple is doing so well financially is that the iPhone 4S, which was released last October, still has a lot of momentum. And now five additional regional carriers in the U.S. will start offering the iPhone on April 20. Oddly, they'll be selling both the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 for $50 less than the other carriers, starting at $150 and $50, respectively. In addition, the GSM carrier in the bunch will also likely offer the iPhone 3GS.



Look to Livio to make your next car more iOS friendly

Our readers know of Livio Radio (see my review here) for their Bluetooth in car radio hardware kit, available at your local Radio Shack, but you may not know that they have created Livio Connect, an API targeted at hardware makers and app developers. I had the opportunity to speak with Jake Sigal, CEO of Radio.



Apple Inc. The Ultimate Social Media Experiment

While I will be the first to acknowledge the amazing technological achievements of Apple's line is computing products, I must say, more than any technological accomplishment, Apple's phenomenal success rests in large part upon the amazing sociological phenomena it has so meticulously and intentionally generated, over decades of persistent effort.

 



Evolution: The iOS Revolution.

Evolution. The iOS Revolution.

 

 

 

 

 

In this "post-PC" day and age we are witnessing the revolution of our entire world and society as a result of a single notecard size computer, namely the iPhone. As Tim Cook stated at the unveiling of the new iPad: "Apple is at the forefront of this revolution! Apple has its feet firmly planted in the post-PC future. We have three post-PC devices: the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad - the revolutionary device that defined a whole new category and is outstripping the wildest of predictions. We are talking about a world where the PC is no longer the center, but just another device, where your new devices need to be more portable, more personal."

 

Rarely has an evolutionary step (be it biological or technological) come along that has so transformed the way we relate with the world around us. Short of an asteroid hitting the planet or extra-terrestrials making themselves known, the iPhone and all it portends, is arguably one of the biggest and most significant events and inventions we may see this century! Like the light bulb and the telephone, the TV, the automobile and the airplane, the iPhone has fundamentally changed and is continuing to change the way we move through our lives and interact with our world.

Phil Spector gave us the Wall of Sound. Julie Andrews gave us the Sound of Music. Now, Bob Marley's family wants to give us the Bag of Rhythm. I've written about the House of Marley before, and their commitment to both quality audio equipment and charitable efforts through their 1love foundation, named after Bob Marley's classic song.

Breath=Battery Power? An Innovative iPhone Charger Concept

image

Yesterday I came across an article on the Huffington Post about a device (still in conceptual form) that charges your iPhone by converting your breath into electrical energy. Theoretically, it would allow you to charge your iPhone while sleeping, running, or performing any other act of breathing. The only catch? You have to wear this Storm Trooper-esque mask (shown at right).
