T-Mobile Taking iPhone 5 Preorders for April 12 Launch

image

T-Mobile, the only one of the country's four largest carriers not yet offering the iPhone, has now begun taking preorders ahead of its April 12 launch. Unlike other carriers, T-Mobile has switched to a new model: customers pay the full cost of the iPhone rather than the subsidized price of $200, but their monthly cost for unlimited voice and data is much lower. Over time, you can save quite a lot of money.

iPlifier & Ampjacket: 2 Acoustic iOS Accessories Designed to Crank Up the Volume

image

The iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch are great music players, especially if you're using headphones, but the speaker placement in all of these devices is problematic. By directing sound straight down, it doesn't reach the user's ears as well as if the speakers were pointed forward. I've tried gadgets like SoundJaw, which uses physics to redirect audio towards the user, but that don't typically accommodate cases. Enter iPlifier, a Kickstarter project that plugs into the lightning dock. Even if your iPhone is in a typical case, the device directs audio to the user.



How to Replace a Smashed iPhone Screen

Your iPhone screen can suffer damage in many different situations. You can crack your iPhone's LCD digitizer by simply resting against a wall with your phone in your pocket. The screen also can suffer from dead pixel spots within the digitizer. Dead pixel spots prevent you from interacting with the screen in a specific area of the screen.



iPhoneography Tip of the Week — To Flash or Not to Flash

image

The iPhone's built-in camera is one of the most widely used cameras in the world. Each week we will feature an iPhoneography tip to help you take better pictures with your iPhone!

In the olden days (before iPhones, of course), it was difficult to take photos indoors unless you had a flash. Today, many point-and-shoot camera users have problems using flash when taking pictures of people because of the dreaded red eye effect.

With iPhone's built-in light source and red-eye brush, Apple has solved that problem to a large degree. You can turn the light on or off as you wish or leave it in its Auto setting.

Q&A with Antonio Meze — Designer of Meze Classic Wood Headphones

image

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Antonio Meze, the extremely talented designer of Meze ebony wood headphones. Antonio Meze is both a classic-modernist designer as well as a musician and audiophile, all of which is apparent the moment you put on a pair of his headphones. The quality of craftsmanship is simply exceptional, as is the quality of sound!

Chunky Pig Contest - Get Your Game Published and Win an iPad mini!

image

I almost always prefer a good indie game over franchise games from a big publisher. I like to see the little guy win (in and outside of games), so any news forwarding that agenda is worthy in my book.

Chunky Pig, a marketing company for mobile game development (started by games industry veteran Nick Malaperiman), kicked off a contest at GDC to give game developers a chance to get their iOS game ideas noticed by premier publishers in the business (and even win an iPad mini). Enter the contest at Chunky Pig, or read below for the full press info on the event.
