5 Apr 2010  2 Comments


Both Apple and Microsoft are holding press conferences/events within a week. Apple event will be on April 8th and will be showcasing their new iPhone OS 4.0. There are no confirmed details on what might the new OS actually have in store for us but rumors consist of:

  • Bigger Screen
  • Higher Screen Resolution
  • Front-Facing Camera
  • Multi-Tasking
  • Better Notifications
  • A Useful Home Screen
  • Might Have The New A4 CPU

As for Microsoft its not that simple, it will be held on April 12th and nobody knows what exactly the event will be about. its just speculation now. it could be:

  • Project Pink (the long rumored phone project ever since Microsoft acquired Danger-The makers of the Sidekick).
  • More Windows Phone 7 news (They officially removed the “Series” part)
  • Zune news – really hope not
  • Xbox news – The green theme suggests that. (Link)
  • Courier Announcement – everybody is really hoping for that one, have you seen the Courier videos??

iPad – First Impressions

5 Apr 2010  11 Comments

After posting the first iPad pic in Kuwait and first unboxing in Kuwait now its time to talk about the device, here are my first impressions.

Activating the device was a breeze (I have a US based account (Mark wrote a work around if you have a Kuwaiti account). FIrst thing I noticed how fast and responsive the device is, I mean its blazing fast. Loving the new Apple CPU.

The browser shows the full web pages and not the mobile ones, as seen from the pic above. Didn’t expect that as it ran the same webkit browser that the iPhone has, or so I thought.

The screen in nice, nothing super amazing . its large (bigger is better here) and some apps make use of the extra real estate.

A big letdown is not being able to charge the device via USB unless you’ve got a new mac. If you are a windows user you have to hunt down a wall socket to recharge.

The iBooks app is downloaded separately for free, after doing so you get a copy of Winnie-the-Pooh for free.

I’ll be doing a review and should be up soon. If you have any question please do so in the comments.

MacUpdate Bundle For Mac Users

31 Mar 2010  6 Comments

I dont know how I forgot to post about this. MacUpdate are in the final hours of the Spring Bundle Promo. You’ll get 10 apps at a huge discount. I purchased the bundle just because it included Parallels 5 which sells at $80 but the bundles whole price is $50 , so I would recommend it just for Parallels.
Software that are included in the bundle:

Parallels 5 ($80)
Hydra ($80)
Timeline 3D ($65)
SpellCatcher X ($40)
Back-In-Time ($30)
MacScan ($30)
ForeverSave ($15)
WebSnapper ($15)
HyperSpaces ($13)
MacDVDRipper Pro ($10)

So I encourage all Mac users to check it out. And I recommend it especially if you haven’t got Parallels already.

iPhone OS 4.0 To Get Multitasking?!

20 Jan 2010  10 Comments


BGR has an insider that confirms that the new iPhone OS (iPhone OS 4.0) will have multitasking capability (among other tweaks).

  • There will be multi-touch gestures OS-wide. (Would make sense for that as the rumored OS for the iTablet is close if not the same as the iPhone)
  • “A few new ways” to run applications in the background — multitasking.
  • Many graphical and UI changes to make navigating through the OS easier and more efficient. We haven’t had this broken down, but we can only hope for improved notifications, a refreshed homescreen, etc.
  • The update will supposedly be available for only the iPhone 3G and 3GS, but will “put them ahead in the smartphone market because it will make them more like full-fledged computers” more than any other phone to date. Everyone is “really excited.”
  • The last piece of information is the most vague, but apparently there will be some brand new syncing ability for the contacts and calendar applications.

If that’s true, this takes the iphone to a whole new level. One of my main complaints was multitasking, so this will make me fall in love with the iphone again.

Now we just hope that there will be some hardware upgrades.
