Adobe’s Photoshop Elements 9 Editor is the first Adobe application to hit the Mac App Store. I wonder how long will it be before we see Photoshop CS5 there as well.

How To get iOS 5 on Your iOS Device

9 Jun 2011  5 Comments

If you are a developer you already know how to get the latest beta version of iOS and register your device to enable the installation if that beta software. If you are not a developer, you can still test out the latest Apple mobile OS by firstly downloading the latest beta builds of iTunes and iOS 5 from here. And then you must register you iPhone/iPad or iPod Touch as a developer’s device. There are a few websites that do that ranging from $7-$10 per device. Check them out here,here or here.

After getting all the necessary requirements. The first thing you should do is install the beta version of iTunes. Then launch it and select your idevice’s icon in iTunes and then click on “Restore” while holding “Control” if you are using windows on the “Option” key of you are using a Mac. Select the iOS 5 beta file that you downloaded and the rest should go smoothly.

If you follow me on twitter I would have bombarded you with tweets yesterday about both the WWDC and the E3 conferences that were taking place at almost the same time yesterday. Both had some exciting news coming out of them.

 

Activation:
First off, when you get iOS 5, you would not need to hook it up to iTunes for activation using a Mac or a PC. Taking a play from Google, apple will be doing the activation wirelessly.

 

 

Notification:
This one was the most anticipated. Apple revamped the notification system on the iOS. making actually getting a notification more tolerable. Again a “borrowing” the idea from Google’s Android. you can slide down the screen a see all you notification and both the weather and stock widgets (and only widget sadly). Also, notifications will show up on your lockscreen. Making if more than just a glorified clock.

There are 2 major expos taking place this week. WWDC, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick-off later today with Steve Jobs taking the stage and will announce a few things:

  • iOS 5
  • OS X Lion
  • iCloud

What I hope he will announce:

  • A revamped notification and widget system for the iOS 5. Something similar to what the Android has.
  • A new Airport/Time Capsule. A lot of theories are built upon a new Time Capsule and it getting either an A4 or A5 chip. I was in the process of getting on till I heard those rumors and decided to hold off for a few days.
  • Macbook Air i3/i5 upgrade.
  • Mac Mini i3/i5 upgrade.
  • Apple TV A5 chip upgrade and the ability to run apps.

The other event that is taking place this week is the Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3 for short). There are a lot of games that I’m looking forward to playing, so I hope I get more info about them:

  • Nintendo’s new console
  • Uncharted 3
  • Gears of War 3
  • Bioshock: Infinite
  • Infamous 2
  • Need for Speed: The Run
  • Forza 4
  • Skyrim
  • Tomb Raider
  • Darksiders ii
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Silent Hill: Downpour

And a lot more.

Blogging From Your iPad? Use Blogsy

23 May 2011  7 Comments

I rarely blog on my iPad or even use it lately. But after stumbling on Blogsy, I might just use it more often.

Blogsy is a fully featured blogging application that supports WordPress and Blogger platforms at the moment. And is 10 times better than the official WordPress app.

It’s pretty straight forward to use and you can embed media from a number of online services and also from any webpage using the apps own integrated browser. It lacks the ability to add photos from your library, but its coming in the next update according to the developers.

The app costs . I think it’s worth it.

Henge Docks: A Macbook/Macbook Pro Docking Station

11 May 2011  5 Comments

For me, its almost 10 times more comfortable to work on a desktop than any other size laptop. So most of my time I’m in front of at least a 22″ screen. Working with that much screen real-estate is so productive. And because of that, When I am ever at home I always use my PC and never even think of using my MBP.

Enter Henge Docks. A docking solution for the Macbook and the Macbook Pro that is stylish, elegant, reasonably priced and also comes with all the extension wires you would need. Its very easy to setup and is very convenient .

I got 2 of those for my 15″ MBP and I have been using them for more than 6 months now. And I absolutely love them. I have one setup at home and one setup at work. That means my home desktop experience is with me at work and I don’t need to be stuck with the tiny 15″ screen. All I needed to get was a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, a Mini Displayport-to DVI and a DVI cable, and I was all set.
