I have no idea what Apple will announce tomorrow. I do know that it will be an updated iPhone, that will likely be available in the coming few weeks, just in time for the holiday shopping season. It’s becoming more and more likely that rumors of teardrop designed hardware, complete with a new larger display were off base and what we’ve been calling the iPhone 5 will not announced tomorrow. It might not be coming until 2012. It seems like tomorrow will bring the announcement that the iPhone 4S is coming and not the iPhone 5. This new iPhone will […]
For as long as I can remember, there have been rumors of the mythical iPhone 5. We’ve been tracking them for quite some time. They often include potential iPhone 5 parts, cases and a healthy dose of analyst speculation. There have been plenty of unconfirmed rumors that Apple would announce more than one new iPhone, with speculation that we’d see both an iPhone 4S and an iPhone 5. Those rumors have certainly ramped up before the usual summer release schedule and previous to the now official October 4th iPhone event. Yet, days before the event, we’re all in the dark. […]
When Apple announced that Lion would be available for purchase through the Mac App Store, it left many wondering what would happen if there was a problem with our Macs. In the past, you could always count on inserting a CD or DVD, allowing you to boot up in times of trouble. Lion is a different beast. There is no CD or CD, thanks to the electronic delivery. Apple promised to sell Lion on USB sticks and you can purchase one from the Apple Store for $69. This is great if don’t mind paying the extra fare for both installation […]
When I purchase a new gadget, the first thing I normally do is seek out some sort of shield to protect it from scratches. I’ve used a number of products in the past, most of which required wet applications. They require a some sort of Windex-like substance and prior to application, I felt like a doctor scrubbing in for surgery. On the advice of my podcast compadre Marianne Schultz, I decided to give to trial the Steinheil EX Ultra Fine on my iPhone 4.
I’m a developer or at least I have a developer account that is used to submit the everythingiCafe app to the App Store. I’m also a tech blogger who covers Apple. The lines between those two started blurring within the blogosphere a long time ago. Apple’s Developer program, priced at just $99 per year, allows developers the ability to download the latest beta versions of iOS. When you do so, you must agree to a lengthy non-disclosure agreement or NDA. The NDA effectively means that you shouldn’t discuss any aspects of the software you’ve just downloaded. Remember, the reason for […]
There was plenty of speculation regarding iCloud. Apple was going to deliver a Cloud service done right and music was going to be at the forefront. With deals completed with Sony, EMI and others, everything was in place for Monday’s announcement at WWDC. Both Amazon and Google had already launched their services. Google’s Music Beta is as the title suggests is an invite only beta. Amazon offers no clear method of listening to music in your “cloud drive” from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Both of those services have gaps and certainly aren’t geared for iDevice owners. Surely Apple […]
Next month, everythingiCafe (formerly everythingiPhone), will celebrate our fifth anniversary. Call us crazy, but we started the site in May of 2006 with the hope that Apple would one day announce a phone. That day came in January of 2007 and ever since then, we’ve been a bustling iPhone community with a membership of over 126,000 members. For the past seven months or so, we’ve been working on creating an entirely new forum experience for readers and members alike (Not a member, join today). Today we’re pleased to announce the new everythingiCafe forums.
During the past few years, I’ve grown obsessed with Twitter clients for the iPhone. The number of quality Twitter apps for the iPhone dwarfs those available on other platforms. For many, myself included, Tweetie had been my tweet weapon of choice. After Twitter bought Atebits, I transitioned to the official Twitter app, which was essentially an upgraded version of Tweetie. Great features and at the always fantastic price of free. Now under the corporate branch of Twitter, there have been some questionable decisions regarding features (see Quick Bar) and you have to wonder just how long before they introduce another […]
Tomorrow, Apple will host an event to announce the forthcoming release of the new and improved iPad. If prognosticators are correct, the new iPad will see modest improvements throughout in addition to either one or two cameras. It will be billed as, all the things people love about the original iPad, but better. It comes at a time when tablets are the new battleground. CES 2011 saw a bevy of manufacturers launching or announcing tablets for release this year. The most significant is probably the Motorola Xoom, which went on sale last week. The Xoom is the first tablet to […]
