As you know, Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is currently underway in San Francisco. As part of the event, Apple announced their annual Design Awards yesterday.
The company has noted on the Developers website that the award is given to applications that "demonstrate technical excellence, innovation, superior technology adoption, high performance, and outstanding design".
A major security loophole in AT&T's systems has resulted in the breach of confidential information of over 114,000 iPad 3G owners.
According to Ryan Tate from Gawker, the list of users who have been compromised includes thousands of prominent people in the politics, media and finance space.
All Things Digital has reported that Pulse News Reader, an RSS feed reader application for the iPad, has been removed from the App Store due to a copyright violation complaint filed by The New York Times.
The application is developed by Alphonso Labs, a company founded by two Stanford University graduate students and was one of the iPad apps highlighted by Steve Jobs during his WWDC 2010 keynote address. The application retails at $4 and has been downloaded over 35,000 times till date.
As usual the attendees got an opportunity to spend some hands-on time with Apple’s new iPhone after the event to find out if iPhone 4 is “the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone” as Apple has claimed.
So lets find out what the pundits have to say about iPhone 4.
Early this week, some of our readers observed that AT&T had moved up the upgrade eligibility criteria making it possible for them to upgrade to iPhone 4 when it goes on sale on June 24.
During Apple's WWDC Keynote address, Steve Jobs confirmed the good news:
“I’m thrilled to announce AT&T is going to make an incredibly generous upgrade offer. If your contract expires any time in 2010, you are immediately eligible for a new iPhone 4 at the same $199 or $299 prices if you top up your contract 2 years.”
The megapixel count is a standard metric used by customers to compare the camera sensors offered by various gadget manufacturers. But as we have often noted in the past, this is only one of the several factors that determines the actual quality of the camera.
The argument over the right metric to measure camera quality has once again cropped up after Apple unveiled its latest iPhone this week. The new iPhone 4 sports a 5-megapixel camera and it is being argued that the camera on iPhone 4 may not match up to those offered by rival devices like HTC EVO 4G that comes with an 8-megapixel camera.
Apple unveiled the next generation iPhone yesterday amidst a lot of anticipation and excitement.
As Steve Jobs had noted prior to the event, the announcements at WWDC 2010 did not leave the users disappointed.
In fact, Apple has claimed that iPhone 4 is “the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone”.
Is Apple planning to launch the iWork suite of productivity applications on the iPhone? Folks at MacRumors point out to an image posted on the Apple website, which hints at the possibility of iWorks for the iPhone. The image has since then been removed from the website.
However, the revelation has triggered speculations that Apple may in fact be working on an iPhone version of the popular presentation app. The company had already launched an iPad-compatible version of the iWork applications earlier this year.
Apple has seeded iOS 4.0 Golden Master; earlier known as iPhone OS 4.0 to developers of its iPhone Developer program. As with the earlier beta versions, the "Golden Master" version of iOS 4.0 is also available only to iPhone developers at present.
