So there has been some latest renders of the iPhone 8 floating about online. To be honest? It looks clean AF! Pretty much reduced bezels down to none at all, there is a strip going around the edge of it, but it still looks nice in my eyes.
The renders are from the designer Martin Hajek he has done a pretty clean job with these renders and I look forward to seeing more.
No Touch ID on the back, vertical camera for AR. I’m looking forward to the release of the iPhone 8 or X, whatever they decide to call it. There have been so many leaks, renders and speculation in pretty much everything to do with the phone. Design, glass, camera, AR, OLED screen, thickness etc, however we won’t truly find out until it gets released. Depending on the price, and design, I will consider it. I don’t think the camera flash is going to be in the middle, if it is, the lenses will be further apart and the camera section will be longer. What you think of the renders? Prefer white or black?
Spotify are now testing this ‘Sponsored Songs’ shit. It’s basically like and ad showing on your playlists, or random playlists. It shows a song above them and prompts you to listen or save it. Seen the post over at The Verge.
This year at WWDC 2017 there is a few things to expect. MacBook upgrades, Siri Speaker, new iPads and software updates.
New iPad Pro
There will be a new iPad Pro for sure. There has been to many leaks for there not to be. The leaks and cases around the web have confirmed it will be a 10.5 inch iPad Pro, rocking the A10 chip, quite possibly a A10X chip with some function that is only valid with that iPad and won’t work with other iPads in the line-up, marketing at its best ha! Obviously it will have the Space Grey, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold colours as all the rest do, well possibly no rose gold as the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, iPad or iPad Mini 4 doesn’t have it, so we shall see. There might be a few design tweaks and such, but more to follow on Monday when WWDC happens.
I wouldn’t say ‘new’ MacBooks for this one to be honest as it will just be upgrades mainly, if you class that as new, then good for you. The MacBook range, I’m pretty sure all of them will get the Kaby Lake chips from Intel this time around. When these are released Intel are already working or have released new chips once again. So, people will probably complain that these chips are a generation behind when they have no idea what they do. The one I’m most interested in is the MacBook Air if it gets a retina display, processor update and keeps the keyboard in there, if they go the Core M or whatever route for the processor and incarnate the new keyboard they use then I shan’t be a fan. I don’t like the clicky keyboard on the MacBook or the MacBook Pro for that matter, even know the Pro has a second gen butterfly switch, I still don’t like it, I prefer traction, then I can make sure the key has been pressed, although I can see it coming, time will tell.
Apple released a new colour of iPhone. (PRODUCT) Red. Same everything else, just the colour has changed. On the Apple Online Store it clearly states ‘Order from 15:01 on 24.03’, you would be surprised how many people ask ‘When is it released’ and sound silly. Don’t be lazy and look for it before asking silly questions.
So its official. The AirPods have been released. Took long enough eh? The Verge, 9to5 Mac and The Next Web have a few posts if you would like to read them.
I’ve been waiting on a pair of these for a while now but it seemed that Apple had issues with the bluetooth side of things. Feel free to do a quick search on that.
In a press release, Apple says that the AirPods “will be shipping in limited quantities at launch,” and that brick-and-mortar stores “will receive regular AirPod shipments.” AirPods will start appearing at Apple Stores, “select” carrier stores, and authorized Apple retailers next week. They’re launching in over 100 countries, including the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Mexico, and Japan.
This is just going to be a short post on what i think the Nexus 5 will come out and some rumours from around the web.
So reading posts and stories all over the interwebs over the past week, all aim to roughly about the same sort of specs etc.. Unless they’ve just copied from each other and its went down the list… (which it probably has lol).
This might be old news to some, but fucking hell here it is. It’s actually a reality! I’ve been keeping up to date with Google Glass through various news sources, and this just takes the fucking cake.
Google Glass will be released by the end of 2013! Pure fucking sex. Although in saying that, they never mentioned as to what countries it will be released to. I hope to god UK is on the list, because if it isn’t im gonna be PISSED! Read More
Vodafone not to long ago released red plans. They are now offering unlimited minutes and txts. It’s a pretty good move on Vodafone’s part, although im pretty sure that they are losing a lot of customers due to the fact that their max data is only 2GB, sure you can add 1GB for £6 on top of your monthly tariff.
So it started with Virgin Media blocking The Pirate Bay, all well and good. Now all the other ISP’s are jumping onboard, when I say jumping on board im meaning they have probably been ordered to do so.
Bottom line is, ISP or not you cannot physically block someone from a website. You will always be able to use proxies and such to get around it, that’s the glory of the Internet, there is always a way around everything, you just have to find it.
