What the iPhone 5 icon looks like extrapolated into full size

No comments:



What’s interesting here is that the button isn’t wider as originally prognosticated. In this scenario,it is actually shorter to make room for the bigger screen.

Earlier today we broke the news that an iPhone icon in the Photo Stream beta software had some new dimensions including a more edge to edge screen and an elongated button, which coincidentally matched the earlier rumors. One obviously possibility is that this device is a larger-screened iPhone 5. However, we’ve received word that of the two new iPhones coming out from Apple, this device might actually be the smaller, cheaper iPhone that is set for release at the same time.

One was called the “upgraded one, the iPhone 5″ and the other, “a new smaller one”.
To that end, we’ve got a mock up of what something like that would look like using current iPhone sizes, and the dimensions offered up by the icon (above) if it is a smaller device. If it is the bigger device, or at least bigger-screened device, It could look like the below:




This would be a nearly 4+ inch screen, nearly the size of the Galaxy S line.

Two men plead not guilty in iPhone 4 prototype case

No comments:




Not to be confused with yesterday’s story of an iPhone 5 prototype potentially being lost in the wild, today CNET reports that two men involved in last year’s high profile case of the lost iPhone 4 prototype purchased by Gizmodo have pled not guilty.

This comes after the court decided to not file charges against Gizmodo and instead file misdemeanours against the two men, Brian Hogan (pictured above) and Robert Sage Wallower, suspected of finding and selling the device.

Hogan, the man who allegedly obtained the prototype iPhone in a bar last year has plead not guiltily, along with Robert Sage Wallower, who is charged with possessing stolen property in the case, in front of Judge Jonathan Karesh this morning. Pretrial is slated for October 11.



CNET reports:

“At an arraignment here this morning, Brian Hogan, the man who allegedly found the prototype in a bar after it was left there by an Apple engineer, and Robert Sage Wallower, who is accused of that charge as well as possessing stolen property, entered their pleas before Superior Court Judge Jonathan Karesh.”
We’ll keep you updated as more becomes available…

iPhone 5 icon shows up in Photo Stream?

No comments:












Apple’s latest Photo Stream beta has an interesting icon that seems to look like the rumored iPhone 5s with extended screen and elongated home button (we count 4 pixels by 2 pixels – close up below the fold and actual icon, right). What do you think? Coincidence? (Thanks Steve and Olivier!)

Huge glass panes arrive at the Fifth Avenue store

No comments:






TUAW posted has this image and a short video, embedded below, of workers unloading huge glass panes outside Apple’s iconic Fifth Avenue store in New York City. The store lost its iconic glass entrance two months as Apple has been working to upgrade the cube to a more seamless appearance. Although the main entrance is closed, the store itself has been open all this time. The upgrade will reportedly cost the company $6 million, nearly matching the seven million dollars Apple allegedly paid back in 2005 to assemble the glass cube entrance. They want to reduce the number of glass panes from 90 to just 15, three per side, per released company plans.
