I’ll be the first to say that I hate watching iPhones taking a beating. Every few days we see a new video of some idiot seeing how far he can go before completely destroying his idevice. This time however, the folks over at G-Form had the opposite in mind…
The iPad mini is finally starting to take shape and we’re beginning to get an idea of what the smaller tablet will look like, thanks to a number of different sources. Three different (and credible) sources reported about the upcoming device and they all pointed towards the same specs. Furthermore, a dock connector for the iPad mini was also leaked this morning.
Over the past few months, we’ve heard tons of talk about an upcoming iPad mini, but we’ve yet to see any actual evidence for it. Many different sources have confirmed that the device is indeed in the works, but why haven’t we seen any leaked parts for it? Perhaps it hasn’t hit the production phase yet?
Yesterday, we reported about a 35 year old homeless man named Kariem McFarlin that had broken into Steve Jobs Palo Alto home and stolen more than $60,00 worth of computers and personal items.Well, the genius homeless man was arrested shortly after the burglary when he tried to plug in the iPads and iMacs he had stolen. The devices requested softare updates from Apple’s servers which immediately led the police to him.
Nonetheless, here’s a list of what the homeless man managed to steal from Jobs’ home:
If you’ve been keeping up with the news here at iPD, you’ll know that there has been a lot of talk about a “mini iPad” that is supposed to be announced alongside the iPhone 5 next month. There hasn’t been too much information on the device, leading some people to believe that the tablet is just myth that won’t see the light of day.
However, according to a new report by 9to5Mac, the iPad mini is in fact in the works and will be out this fall. The device is to look similar to a larger iPod Touch, with smaller bezels and a Facetime camera for video chatting:
Apple and Samsung have been going at it in court for years now, but what is this really all about? Well, to make a long story short, Apple feels that Samsung has copied the design of the iPhone and iPad in order to mooch off of their success. Thus, the Cupertino company wants compensation in return.
However, the case is very complicated and actually includes four different design patents and three feature patents. Furthermore, Apple believes that more about 20 of Samsung’s devices currently infringe on its patents.
According to Silicon Valley Mercury News, a 35-year-old man by the name of Kariem McFarlin has been arrested and charged with residential burglary and selling stolen property after he broke into Steve Jobs’s Palo Alto home and stole over $60,00 worth of property.
We’ve reported in the past about rumors of Apple looking to bring in-cell technology on its next generation iPhone, but it looks like the company was just granted a patent for the new touchscreen display tech. Supposedly, in-cell technology will be used to make the iPhone thinner, even while adding new parts like an LTE chip and larger display.
