CBS has just posted a new app to the Apple App Store that turns your iPhone into a Star Trek communicator. You can flip the communicator open by flipping the phone and it includes all sorts of Original Series sound effects. Even cooler there is a phone app included, which can access your contacts, so you can make calls right from the communicator.
Star Trek die hard fans will simply love this app. Currently it is priced at $.199 so go to the iTunes store if you cannot wait for it to go cheaper.
When I read this, it caught me by surprise. Reports are emerging that Internet has gone down in Cairo and throughout Egypt, only hours before the largest planned protests yet.
Egypt has shut off the internet and every Egyptian provider, every business, bank, Internet cafe, website, school, embassy, and government office that relied on the big four Egyptian ISPs for their Internet connectivity is now cut off from the rest of the world. What will happen to Egypt tomorrow, on the streets and in the credit markets?
This has never happened before in any other world and the unknowns are piling up. CNN reporter Ben Wedeman confirmed Internet is down in Cairo. The Los Angeles Times is also reporting that BlackBerry Internet has been taken offline in Egypt. I hope things will go back to normal soon.
Apple has finally solved the manufacturing problem preventing the release of white iPhone 4s, a report says. Originally promised shortly after the availability of black models, Apple has had to delay the white phones several times.
The trouble, a Macotakara source says, is that earlier painting techniques produced large numbers of defective units, making them impractical for mass production. The answer has reportedly come from a painting material developed in Japan, said to make it easier to adjust the thickness of layers.
White iPhones have in fact begun popping up in a number of tracking systems, including ones in the US, the UK and Germany. Apple might therefore finally be on the verge of shipping, though exactly how soon is a matter of speculation. The company could attempt to time the launch sometime after the debut of the Verizon iPhone on February 10th.
And the bottomline is … do people really care what the problem is/was? As long as it is fixed, people definitely are looking forward to its release. As for problems encountered before and the solution done to it, nobody cares … right?
