MLB App Puts Baseball Players' Careers in Their Own Hands - 0 views

  • This season, Major League Baseball players will have a new tool at their disposal in the form of a mobile app. But it's for use off the field.
  •  
    This article talks about a mobile app that is available on iOS and Android for Major League Baseball Players to help arrange contracts, look into profits and deal with the business side of their careers while on the go. By giving players devices to arrange better contracts or research notoriety administration on online networking, the MLBPA is trusting the application will make the business side of players' professions more transparent. This is great for baseball players because they can control their careers on their phones, and don't have to worry much about scams in their contracts. This app also shows the new evolution of careers and jobs, and how everything is becoming technology based.

Apple (Canada) - iOS 7 - Siri - 0 views

  •  
    i chose to talk about Siri because i think Siri is a very useful tool. Siri helps me personally and makes not just me but my parent's lives easier to, for example when my parents are driving and the law is you can't use your phone and drive at the same time, Siri helps making a phone call with no hands. Siri also helps you get information more easily, all you have to do is tell Siri what you need and it will search and find the info for you. i also think Siri is good because you can take notes and save contacts more easily for example you tell Siri to make a note it will record what you say and add it to to your notes. This is why i think Siri is a great creation and it makes peoples lives way easier.

Apple reportedly working on a device to predict heart attacks | The Verge - 1 views

  •  
    Apple has been successful for many years and have been looking to expand their company into the medical devices and cars categories. With the help of audio engineer Tomlinson Holman, Apple has developed a device that can predict heart attacks by listening to the sound of your blood. Last June the company also announced that they were planning on bringing the iOS into vehicles and earlier this year we got a sneak peak of what these cars might look like. What could leave many people thinking is the thought of this new product making other car models obsolete and if it will take over the world like the iPhones have. The report on these new produces have been very light on detail but we do know that we can look forward to these new devices that can yet again change the world we know of today.

Apple's iOS 6 Maps Gets Improvements » Geeky Gadgets - 0 views

  •  
    As you all probably know, the new Apple maps available on iOS 6 is failing to live up to many expectations and requirements. Since coming out, it has had a lot of criticism and many apple customers were disappointed. There has even been a public apology from Apple CEO Tim Cook, who promised that Apple were hard  at work improving Apple Maps. In my opinion, it is embarrassing when such a prestigious company such as Apple develops something that receives this much criticism. I also think that this can hurt Apple's reputation, and even cause users to switch over to rival companies such as Samsung for phones. The big question, however, is whether or not Apple can match or even improve on the previously incorporated with Apple products, "Google Maps." Some say this is unlikely, as Google has much more experience in make map apps, and as Apple still has a long way to go until they can improve Apple Maps to a level where it could be considered decent.

Instagram Rockets to No. 1 in App Store in Wake of Facebook Deal - 0 views

  •  
    A few days ago i had posted a link that was talking about how a lot of people had started leaving instagram since facebook bought it, but now it seems it's doing the opposite. For the first time ever, instagram is at the top of the iOS free apps catalog. The article even states that people are starting to join instagram because of all the hype. IT seems that they want to see what instagram is about and if it's really as amazing as people claim it to be. In my opinion, i think the hype for instagram will eventually die down and be another one of those 'used to be apps' like temple run.

How To Crack the Passcode of Any iOS Device - 0 views

  •  
    You think your iPhone or Android phone is safe from hackers just because of a passcode lock? Well, the Swedish security firm Micro Systemation just developed a cracking program that is called "XRY" that can hack into any, I repeat, any passcode of any mobile device. It works by first jailbreaking the phone to expose security flaws in the OS, then proceeds to brute-force the default four-digit pin, which only has 10,000 possible combinations to begin with. This all happens in under two minutes. Once the device has been unlocked, they can get any information they want- from logs contacts and even DELETED items.
  •  
    It's a shame that this only works by jailbreaking the phone... This could have been... Useful.

A Mil-Spec, Everything-Proof iPhone Case With a Freakishly Slim Figure - 0 views

  •  
    This article is about an iphone 4/4S case the claims to be "mil-spec rated"- meaning it is water-, dust-, snow-, and shock-proof. So basically it is an "everything-proof" case (with the exemption of nuclear of course). It also claims that it is noticeably thinner than other cases that carry out similar functions. With a whooping price of $70, I think this is a good buy when you consider how fragile  the iphone can be and how much it takes to repair it when damaged.
  •  
    This article is about a new iPhone 4/4s case that is said to be water,dust,snow,and shock proof. This new case can survive six foot drops and can be submerged under 6 feet of water! The "life proof case adds only 1/16" of thickness to the iPhone. The case is available now and it cost about $70. iPhone users are you willing to pay $70 for a "life proof case"?

Android and iOS expose your photos to third party apps, promise fixes -- Engadget - 0 views

  •  
    This article is about iOS exposing the private data on your phone to third party apps. These include your photos, contact numbers and even your present geographical location. And a week later, Android was also discovered having the same security flaw. Both companies promised that they are working on fixing it. They should do it fast because soon, we are going to run out of personal data to expose.

Siri shows up on an iPod Touch, no longer plays favorites in the iOS family -- Engadget - 0 views

  •  
    By Jove, they've done it. Two young and, shall we say, upcoming hackers managed to put Siri on the iPod Touch. It doesn't  exactly work right - due to Apple's server restrictions, Siri is silent, but they're almost there. Right?

Will BBM for Android and iOS Signal a Massive Pivot for RIM? | TechnoBuffalo - 0 views

  •  
    We have already heard that bbm will be coming to android, but it wont be coming that cheap. the service will cost about 3.99 a month So here's the thing. Assuming the photos are real and the tips are true, why is RIM doing this? Why use DevCon Americas next week in San Francisco to announce to your community that BlackBerry Messenger is going cross-platform? BBM is arguably BlackBerry's most attractive selling point - I'd say the sheer addictiveness of their messaging-centric OS and awesome physical keyboards are right up there. If RIM opens BBM up to Android and iOS, the very platforms who've been kicking their butts over the past 24 months, will anyone still want to buy a piece of BlackBerry hardware?

October 12, 2011: The Day SMS Began To Die | TechCrunch - 0 views

  •  
    With the release of iMessage, one of the many new features that come with iOS 5, people are foreseeing the downfall of SMS. BBM has already started this downfall, and now with iMessage, of those millions of people who have an iDevice and a phone, i am sure they will most likely stick to the iDevice. These are the dark days for SMS

Apple's iOS 5 Error 3200: Now Trending Worldwide | TechCrunch - 0 views

  •  
    It's no surprise Apple's servers are barely holding on to the mass of people coming home from work and school at around 3:00pm-4:00pm all trying to download the new iOS. This is the biggest software upgrade apple has ever done with at least 200+ new features. Well that is what they said on the Apple Website at least. People are concerned that if Apple can barely manage this wave of "Updaters" how will their servers do when all the iCloud subscribers will all be uploading their photos?

Adobe Flash Coming to iOS - 1 views

  •  
    2 per week right? It's been finally done, Apple's fascist stranglehold on the walled garden of apple has lessened as Adobe has announced the creation of a flash media server. This flash media server is similar to cloud computing as flash content is processed off the device on a larger machine which outputs the data back onto your device. This method bypasses the fact that apple devices lack flash to deliver flash content to the masses. Lets admit nobody uses html 5 yet. Rule Britannia!
  •  
    Interesting post. Let's not use the term Facist too loosely, it's a bit harsh. Now tell me, why does Apple not support Flash on iOS?
  •  
    Apple says that flash is not safe which was proven when some coders found a major security flaw within adobe flash a few months ago. They say that because flash is propitiatory it will interfere in their software/hardware production which apple excels in because they are in full control of the entire process. But there's also the fact that apple is making millions off of the games sold off of the appstore. If flash was available, those games would not need to be bought but instead be played for free via the internet
