Tip of the Day: Why and How to Use Autofocus and Auto Exposure Lock on Your iPhone Camera

image

When you capture an image with your iPhone, the camera's autofocus and auto exposure features will automatically determine the best focus position for you and the best exposure for that area of focus. (Exposure determines how light or dark your image will be.) Alternatively, you can manually designate a different area of focus (and adjust the exposure of the image) by tapping on the area you prefer on your iPhone's screen. The iPhone's camera AE/AF Lock feature allows you to lock the focus and exposure settings you've selected so you don't have to reset them between each shot.

I love my iPhone. Who doesn't? So I like to keep it safe in a slim case that can fit in my pocket.

When I had an iPhone 4, the Speck CandyShell case ($34.95) was my first pick. Now, with my 5s, I have opted for a Belkin Grip Candy Sheer case ($24.99).

IBM+Apple Agreement More About Development than Supply Chain

With the advent of bring-your-own-device (BYOD), enterprises have adopted Apple products, sometimes reluctantly, in quantities never seen before. Much of this adoption has come primarily in the form of iPhones and iPads. The exposure of many enterprise applications to the web have also made the integration with Apple’s Macintosh less of a support issue for many organizations. But legacy applications running on mainframes still dominate healthcare, telecommunications, banking, government, and many other industries. 



Make Mailings More Memorable with Mail Designer Pro and Mail Designer 2

As an app developer, I'm always trying to find ways to make my apps more visible, and one way is to email existing customers, who have opted-in, about new apps. But plain old text emails don't stand out, and if you get too fancy, the emails might not display well on mobile devices. By definition, my mobile app customers have iPhones (or Android) and most users read their email on smartphones so proper formatting is important.



Apple News: IBM and Apple Team Up to Bring iOS to Enterprise

In the early 1990s, Lou Gerstner, then head of IBM, wrote a book entitled Who Says Elephants Can't Dance? It was about his efforts to turn around a stodgy mainframe systems and also-ran PC vendor into a service provider. He and other IBM stewards have made tough decisions such as eliminating OS/2 (a powerful Windows competitor that ended in what Gerstner called a "resounding defeat") and selling off their entire PC line to Chinese manufacturer Lenovo. Lenovo has since added Motorola to their arsenal, while IBM is increasingly offering services as their raison d'etre.

Amazon Japan Inadvertently Displays iPhone 6 Information, Including September Availability

image

According to the website Stuff, Amazon Japan inadvertently posted a listing for the iPhone 6. It appeared to confirm we'll be seeing a 4.7-inch iPhone, but there was no mention of a 5.5-inch size. The listing said it would be available in Japan on September 30. And it gave the dimensions of 130 x 65 x 7mm, which compares to the iPhone 5s specs of 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6mm. So apparently the new phone will be even thinner than the iPhone 5s. In addition, the weight was listed as 113g, compared to 112g for the iPhone 5s. The listing also suggests the phone will be getting a price boost.
