News Corp to Release 'Daily' iPad Publication With Help From Apple

No comments:



Ruport Murdock, head of News Corp, and Steve Jobs are planning to unveil a new digital newspaper called the Daily at the end of the month, according to the Guardian.

The collaboration, which has been secretly under development in New York for several months, promises to be the world's first "newspaper" designed exclusively for new tablet-style computers such as Apple's iPad, with a launch planned for early next year.

Intended to combine "a tabloid sensibility with a broadsheet intelligence", the publication represents Murdoch's determination to push the newspaper business beyond the realm of print.

The Daily won't have a print or web edition and has been developed with assistance from Apple engineers. The central innovation is said to be the ability to dispatch the publication automatically to an iPad..

The primarily US focused Daily will cost 99 cents (62p) a week.

Amazingly Detailed Steve Jobs Action Figure

No comments:



M.I.C Store has just started carrying an amazingly detailed Steve Jobs action figure. Perhaps it would make a good Christmas present for that Apple fanboy on your list.

It is love at first sight. This Steve Jobs action figure is just awesome. It’s pretty interesting to see that it has a tiny body and a big head. When I take an in-depth look on the figure, seriously, the level of detail in this thing is simply amazing. Looking at his face, beard, jeans and sneakers makes me feel that it is a tiny size of Steve Jobs standing on my desk. It’s a little bit creepy, but it still looks cool. I just can’t wait to invite my friends to my house to take a look at this.

Shipping worldwide will take 3-4 weeks and is included in the $79.90 price tag.

Router Lets You Create a Wi-Fi Hotspot With Your Tethered iPhone

No comments:



3Gstore.com and NexAira have announced the Nexaira Business Class 2 (BC2) 3G/4G Router that supports iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G tethering. Plug your iPhone into the Nexaira BC2 Router and you can instantly create a secure WIFi hotspot using the 3G connection from your phone. As an added bonus, the Nexaira BC2 Router will charge your iPhone while it is plugged in.

--
Unlike other iPhone tethering solutions, this method does not require you to jailbreak your iPhone, which can void your warranty. Simply add the appropriate data plan from AT&T's web site or the free MyWireless App and enable tethering on your iPhone (adds $20/month to your bill; can be disabled when you don't need it). Once tethering is enabled, connect your iOS 4 iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPhone 4 to the Nexaira BC2 Router via your iPhone USB cable and within a few seconds, your iPhone will indicate that it is in "Internet Tethering" mode. The BC2 router then serves as a WiFi hotspot that multiple WiFi-capable devices like the iPod Touch, iPad, laptop, and more can use to connect to the internet; ethernet devices can also connect via the router's LAN port. While using your iPhone as a modem, you can continue to make and receive calls as well as access all the applications that are installed on your iPhone, including send/receive email/text messaging or any other internet app.

"We are excited to partner with NexAira and offer this exclusive feature for our customers", said Michael Ginsberg, President of 3Gstore.com. "Customers have been asking for this feature ever since tethering was officially supported by Apple last year."

You can purchase the router for $189.99 from this link...

Steve Jobs Says He Won't Match TJ Maxx's $399 iPad Price

No comments:



Unsurprisingly, Steve Jobs says he won't match TJ Maxx's $399 price for the iPad. He also reiterated that TJ Maxx is not an authorized reseller.

-----
Hey Steve,

If I walk into an Apple Store and ask for you to match TJ Maxx's price, would you do it?

Is TJ Maxx even an authorized reseller?

Nope. And nope.

Evidence Found Suggests Apple May Offer Certain MobileMe Services Free

No comments:



Apple may be planning to offer certain MobileMe services free to users, according to a discovery made by MacRumors.

New evidence uncovered in recent iOS 4.2 builds and the iOS 4.2.1 golden master seed is suggesting, however, that Apple will be offering a free MobileMe tier to users. The evidence comes in the form of a new private framework known as AppleAccounts.framework that includes a series of device-specific error messages referring to free MobileMe accounts. In particular, the error messages include alerts regarding having reached "the maximum number of free accounts" for a given device and certain devices not being "qualified for free MobileMe service".

MacRumors also found an error message that restricts certain Apple IDs from being used with MobileMe email.

"This Apple ID cannot be used for MobileMe Mail, but you can use it for other MobileMe services."

It's thought that Apple may be planning to use your Apple ID to offer over-the-air syncing. We'll keep you up to date with more information as it becomes available.
