Dear Cupertino, I'll Take a 6-inch iPad Nano Please.

image

 

 
Yes, I did say iPad Nano. No, that is not a type-o.
 
Remember back, just 20 years ago? Who would've thought that laptops would have revolutionized mobile computing the way they did? Obviously someone. And who could have foreseen how, within a short time, laptops would come in sizes ranging from less than 11 inches to almost 2 feet!? But they have.
 
Now it is the age of the tablet. In this post-PC phase of computing evolution we are seeing the market dominated by both higher quality and more varied options of smartphones, “phablets” and tablets.
 
Personally, I say it's inevitable that Apple continually expands its product line, certainly if they wish to remain the dominating presence of the technology industry. Apple may not be “forced” to do anything, but they have, and will continue to see the intrinsic value inherent in offering an ever increasing variety of product options in terms of iDevice range, capacity and physical size.



Find your keys, wallet, and more with WalletTrackr from PhoneHalo

Forget Find my iPhone, and Find my Friends... With the WalletTrackr, Phone Halo's SelfStarter (an open source competitor to Kickstarter) project, you can use your iPhone, or iPad, or iPod touch to find just about anything! Attach a fob to your keychain or insert a slim card in your wallet or purse and use their iOS app to find the object using a slick interface. The app will remember where the fob was when you were last in contact with it, and play a song when you become separated, and help you find it, much like Apple's Find my iPhone.


iPhone Maps App Update

It's all good in my world. Since Apple kicked Google Maps to the curb, they have been dodging arrows from critics because it's not perfect. I am not about to apologize or justify for Apple, only check in about my real life testing here in rural Vermont.



Where will Apple go next with its iOS devices? Some predictions

image

Sometimes it seems like there's nothing new for Apple to invent. There are rumors of an Apple TV set, but it's hard to imagine that would have the potential for revolutionizing an industry, and goosing Apple's bottom line, in the same way as have the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. While it's difficult to guess what Apple will come up with next, I think there are some sure bets for the near term. So I'm going out on a limb and am making some predictions regarding Apple's mobile devices. 



Holiday Shopping Ideas: Five Best iPad Carryall Bags. [Review]

image

 

 

The holidays are once again upon us, and iPhone Life is your trusty resource for informative reviews and great gift ideas this holiday season.  

Welcome to my roundup of some of the best iPad carryalls available, here at iPhone Life! The criteria being used for this collective is that each bag must be specifically designed to comfortably accommodate a 10-inch iPad, as well as being unique, ruggedly constructed and built to last. All of the bags featured here are exceptional in their own way, with the common thread that any one of them ought to provide you with years of loyal service. Depending on the conditions you expect the carryalls to be used in and the individual user's temperament, one bag will suit one person better than another might, but I believe that in this roundup there is something for everyone. Whether buying for yourself or for that special someone, I hope you find this compilation both useful and helpful in making your holiday gift bag decisions.

The cycle begins anew: Rumors of iPhone 5S

image

We wouldn't expect a new iPhone until September of 2013 but already the rumors are beginning. DigiTimes, which has a spotty record in the rumor department, has today posted a translation of some news carried by the Taiwanese newspaper the Commercial Times. Their report says that trial production of an iPhone 5S will begin in December, with 50,000-100,000 units. Why so soon? The reason the iPhone 5 is in short supply is due to low "yield rates." That is, too many of the parts, or iPhone units themselves, are rejected as defective. That results in increased costs and short supplies.



Plingi Juggle Game Review

image

Plingi Juggle is a great arcade style game which will keep you entertained by challenging you to keep beating your high score, or that of your friends.  In the game you control two plingi spiders which carry a net between them.  A third spider is up in a fruit tree knocking berries down to you, and you are responsible for moving the two spiders on the ground under the fruit.  As the fruit drops you need to have it hit your net where it will bounce off to the right and into your basket. 



Celebrate the High Holidays with House of Marley!

House of Marley: specializing in gear for the iLife.  

 

I can't talk about House of Marley without taking a moment to acknowledge the man who started it all. A man whose principles and messages of love, and “inity” continue to inspire and shape the course of countless lives in so many ways. In fact as testimony to his longevity and influence, Forbes lists Robert Nesta Marley as number 5 on the list of top-earning deceased celebrities.  



iPhone 5 glitch discovered when rapidly scrolling diagonally

image

This is one of those glitches that many iPhone 5 users may never encounter. But if you do, it's good to know that it's a known issue. An iOS developer was the first to notice that if you scroll diagonally by rapidly swiping back and forth on an iPhone 5, the display seems to freeze momentarily. After the developer posted about it online, Recombu, a product-comparison site, was able to replicate the glitch. They've posted a video demonstrating what happens. The video shows two iPhone 4S models side by side with two iPhone 5s.
