• iPad 3 and the next generation of iPod Nano information leaked online

    Posted on February 2nd, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Hi everybody, today, I would like to share some leaked information about your long anticipated iPad 3 and the next generation of iPod Nano. Besides the iPhone 5, fans around the world have paid a lot of attention to Apple’s next generation of iPad and iPod nano as well. The iPad 3 has been semi-confirmed to have a “Retina” display made by LG Display Comp., Ltd. (KS:034220) (sister company to LG Electronics Inc. (KS:066570)).  A report in The Korean Times quotes LG Display CEO Young Soo Kwon as confirming that Retina-display iPads are in production.  The publication writes, “[Kwon] said more smartphone manufacturers will release new models employing LG’s “Retina Display’’ that has been used in iPhones and iPads.”

    According to the report from BGR, a “trusted resource” person declared he had got the detailed information about the much anticipated iPad 3, which was leaked from iBoot development too. And from these data, we could conclude a lot of detailed specs about the upcoming iPad 3, the most excited of which is that iPad 3 will adopt Apple’s new CPU code – S5L8945X (the Apple A4 model was S5L8930X and the A5 was S5L8940X), the A6 quad-core processor, which would absolutely produce better video and device processing performance than iPad 2. Users could own better user experience with iPad 3, like to watch DVD movies on iPad 3, and better video gaming experience.

    iPad 3 informationThe second news is about the next generation of iPod Nano. Based on macrumors’ latest news, a picture showed bellow indicates the appearance of the next generation of iPod Nano, showing little difference with its predecessor. From the appearance of this picture, the next iPod Nano features with a camera, which is said to be a 1.3 megapixels camera for convenient video shooting and image capturing.

    iPod NanoAbout the release date of iPad 3 and the next generation of iPod Nano, we could make a guess that the iPad 3 might be released in the quite near future, just like the first iPad release time, while the next generation of iPod Nano might fall at its annual music and media event. Still to be confirmed.

    Google+ for iOS updateGoogle describes this update on Apple iTunes: Google+ for mobile makes sharing the right things with the right people a lot simpler. Huddle lets you send super-fast messages to the people you care about most. And no matter where you are, the stream lets you stay in the loop about what your friends are sharing and where they’re checking in.

    What’s New in Version 1.0.2.1966

    - Huddle settings

    - Aggregated circle add notifications

    As the main rival to the social network giant Facebook, it could be said the Google+ owns more advantages than Facebook (not mean to the two social network giants, but refer to the development experience) as Google+ could learn experience and more things from the success of Facebook, just like the combination mobile phone apps with different mobile phones. Now, along with the support for almost all Apple devices, it is for sure that more Apple users would take a try of Google+ service. And as a user, we focus not who would win in the competition, but what would bring to us.

  • Leaked Apple Patent Paper Confirms Camera on the Next Generation of iPod Nano

    Posted on May 12th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    Apple seems to be loose in keeping secret of new products as another spy picture has been leaked from U.S. Trademark and Patent Office. The leaked picture is Apple’s iPod “Environment Sensitive Display Tags” patent paper which clearly marks “Camera” word and partial related functions of picture processing.

    iPod nano paten pic

    Before the leaked patent paper, there was a spy picture of the back appearance of the next iPod nano, which indicates that the next generation of iPad nano will include a 1.3MP camera for video shooting and picture snapping. And different from the previous generation of iPod nano, the next iPod nano will include no collar clip and the big camera makes the whole back side of iPod nano a little bit unharmonious.

Sn0wbreeze 2.6 can jailbreak iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad1 and Apple TV 2G. And yesterday, the iPhone Dev Team released the PwnageTool 4.3.2 for untethered iOS 4.3.2 jailbreak on Mac for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G and iPod Touch 4G.

    The Pwnage Tool 4.3.2 can create custom firmware iOS 4.3.2 while preserving your baseband to be upgraded and after that you can unlock 4.3.2. If your devices rely on carrier unlock, then the Pwnage Tool 4.3.2 would be helpful for you, while Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC 14 is not recommended. Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC 14 could also be used on Windows for untethered iOS 4.3.2 jailbreak. You need to use Sn0wbreeze 2.6 to preserve the baseband if your devices rely on carrier unlock and then unlock iOS 4.3.2 with Ultrasn0w, otherwise you need to use Redsn0w 0.9.6 RC 17 for iOS 4.3.2 Jailbreak.
