GarageBand and iMovie coming to iOS

By |March 3rd, 2011|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

A large portion of Apple's Keynote this morning was a demo of iMovie and GarageBand for iOS.  On Apple's iMovie page, it states specifically that it is only compatible with iPad 2, iPhone 4, and iPod touch 4th generation.  There are no requirements listed for GarageBand, but we'd assume that it requires newer devices as well (at least iPhone 3GS).  Let's talk about iMovie first. We've heard many people wonder why they couldn't manipulate photos and movies on their iOS device... for a long time n [...]

Verizon iPhone 4 rumors persist

By |October 18th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

To be honest, we’re extremely tired of writing about the potential Verizon iPhone. Everyone knows that the iPhone 4 exclusivity contracts are either recently expired, will expire soon or invalidated by AT&T’s terrible representation of a great Apple product. We can’t pick one source for this article… it’s been discussed by countless sources since the 1st generation iPhone came out in 2007. Instead of getting your hopes up, we’ll give you all of the reas [...]

Apple calls out another phone for signal issues… again

By |July 24th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

During the iPhone 4 press conference last week, Steve Jobs showed us the first few videos of their new web series: "Hey, these phones suck too."  We got a peak at BlackBerry, Samsung and HTC all demonstrating the same signal issue as the iPhone.  Since then, they've dedicated a whole page on their website to the accusation of other mobile companies.  They followed the pilot episode by adding the Nokia N97 Mini: this appeared to be directly related to Nokia's blog response.  We came across episod [...]

Apple is automatically refunding bumper purchases

By |July 23rd, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

After last week's press conference, I was debating between getting a refund on my iPhone 4 bumper or just "buying" another case through Apple's free case program.  If you look at the picture above, you'll notice that Apple made my decision for me... rather, their computers made my decision for me. Apple has initiated automatic refunds for all customers who purchased the iPhone 4 bumper.  Initially, it looked like everyone was told to go online, fill out a form and claim their refund... that's ob [...]

Surprise! All cell phones have issues.

By |July 21st, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Let’s face it folks, cell phones, whether we want to admit it or not, are released with bugs, issues, and a host of other problems that might crop up through normal, daily use. This fact was put on full display during Steve Jobs’ ‘Antennagate’ press conference last week when he highlighted common problems with antenna reception. The videos of a Blackberry, Android, and Windows Mobile phone experiencing similar dropped call issues illustrate that cell phones are asked to perform ideally in anythi [...]

iPhone 4 press conference: “Antennagate”

By |July 18th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Steve Jobs called the iPhone 4 signal debacle "Antennagate" on Friday.  While explaining Apple's current public relations nightmare to the press, Steve explained what we've been wondering from the first whisperings of the problem... there's not really a problem.  We have more proof; and it's something they would never show you.  Watch the video above and you'll see our editor, Josh Carr, knocking out the signal on an iPhone 3G, an iPhone 3G[S] and an iPhone 4 (we would have included the 1st gene [...]

iPhone 4 death grip… it’s hardware

By |July 13th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

I'm surprised that so many people have this wrong... so surprised that I had to break my own rules and actually write a news article before our August launch date. The media has it wrong.  The iPhone 4 death grip does cause signal issues, but it's only on some iPhone 4's.  All of the mainstream news sources claim that it's just the way the iPhone 4 was designed.  If you hold the iPhone 4 like the picture to the right, you'll be able to kill your signal in some service areas with bad reception.   [...]

iPhone 4: a worthy upgrade

By |June 24th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

For those of us who have been a little busy lately (sorry about the lack of updates), we probably don't know as much about the iPhone 4 as we'd like. Here's a little list of stuff that's new. The new Retina Display has a super-high resolution and pixel density that won't be that obvious at first, but if you take out your original iPhone, iPhone 3G or even the 3GS, you'll notice a difference right away... if you have good eyesight. The camera now takes even better pictures and shoots 720p video. [...]
