A Japanese blog entitled Macotakara says the upcoming iPhone 6 will likely have curved aluminum edges and backplate, the only glass being that of the camera lens. Macotakara has a fair track record according to some big name sources. I don't personally know what to tell you about the blog, regardless it's a cool thought, and definetely not the first time it has been discussed.
During a conference call after Apple's earnings release with Wall Street big-wigs, investors, and analysts, Tim Cook whipped out Apple's trademark laissez-faire marketing and potentially hinted at the future of Apple's product line. One qoute that stands out from the crowd and seems to be the fan favorite is, “We’re eagerly looking forward to introducing more new products and services that only Apple could bring to market,” now that's an exciting statement. Keep in mind Apple is a master of marketing, and these little comments are designed to trigger intrigue and continued product interest. I'm not embarrassed to say they work on me, even though I'm completely aware how large tech companies choose to advertise. It's much deeper than a commercial, but Tim had more curious things to say yet. Check out the next page for more quotes from the conference call and my personal favorite iWatch concept.
This didn't affect me, and I'm sure it didn't phase the majority of people. But those running iOS 6.1.6 or lower apparently haven't been able to complete FaceTime calls. Apple released an official statment on the matter and it's pretty simple really, "If you started to have issues making or receiving FaceTime calls after April 16, 2014, your device or your friend’s device may have encountered a bug resulting from a device certificate that expired on that date. Updating both devices to the latest software will resolve this issue." Says Apple.
Do you remember last year when those hackers managed to bypass the Apple Touch ID system with a mold of the correct fingerprint? That same technique works for the Samsung Galaxy S5's new fingerprint scanner as well. Except with the S5 the user is granted access to your Google Wallet, PayPal, and other sensitive information. Where as the iPhone 5s Touch ID system still prevents users from accessing digital wallets and making payments in the App Store. The Samsung Galaxy S5 fingerprint sensor is far from a 'wow factor", in fact other than being hackable and being far too priveldged from a security standpoint, it doesn't work that well as a fingerprint scanner. Check out the next page for a bit more information on this newly discovered bug, as well as a fun video and GIF of the process in action.
There are many rumors surrounding Apple’s iTunes store these days. In a world of declining music sales, Apple is fighting to change things around with several new additions to their service. The latest piece of leaked information comes from music blogger Robert Hutton, who claims that Apple may be adding high-resolution music to iTunes soon.
Samsung has just announced its own music streaming service named Milk Music, rivaling Apple’s iTunes Radio. Milk Music offers pretty much the same service as Pandora and iTunes Radio, where users are able to make custom radio stations. The service is ad-free for Galaxy users and is powered by the well-known Slacker Radio. Head inside for the service’s full details:
