What is social media good for?

October 1st, 2012

I don’t think anyone can deny the effect social media has had on the world. Not only does it monopolize the vast majority of our time on the internet, it has a habit of sneaking into our thoughts when we are away from our technology. When out of the country, or even when swimming or driving, we wonder what’s happening on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest; the prospect of not being able to access our favourite sites is a bitter one indeed. Even MySpace still has fans, even if they are few and far between.

More social media sites crop up each year, and while some are pretty successful (Facebook), others crash and burn. What is it about social networks and other media, that makes us sit up and pay attention? I mean they get bad press on occasion, and yet we still make time to tag photos, comment on peoples statuses, and blog about our inner thoughts.

iPhone 5 parts leaked

May 30th, 2012

Apple’s next iPhone, which is reported to launch in the fall, seems to have leaked. It’s entirely possible these parts are for a non-final version of the handset, but they do perfectly match up with what has been reported about the new iPhone — mainly a metal and glass rear case, and a new dock connector. Smartphone repair company uBreakiFix has sent us in these photos of the new case, and there’s a lot of differences compared to the current iPhone 4S. Among a redesigned rear case, the camera module cutout looks to be larger, there is a redone speaker and microphone configuration at the bottom, new dock connector, and it looks like Apple has moved the 3.5mm headset jack to the bottom of the device like the iPod touch. Read on for more photos.

A new app called Pet Pal will soon release by Gameloft that allows you to control your pets through ultrasonic waves with high frequency produced from your iPhone that are impossible for human ears to perceive. Gameloft has already released the first trailer of Pet Pal app.

For certain animals, however, these waves are perceived like subliminal messages that nearly 95% of all tested animals cannot ignore. Depending on the frequency and intensity of the waves, various parts of the animal’s brain are stimulated, triggering different instinctual behaviors.

Apple Plans To Include 3D Cameras in Future iPhone

April 1st, 2011

Apple has been exploring a multi-camera system for 3D picture taking, hinting at a future iPhone 3D, entitled “Systems and Methods for an Imaging System Using Multiple Image Sensors”. The filing, revealed this week, describes a system that would capture, process and render 3D images with the accompanying dual-camera hardware.

Apple’s approach is different than the usual stabs at the 3D problem, though. Their patent application describes a “paradigm shift from the known software-based approaches.” Noting that current 3D imaging software must make a guess at how to perform stereo disparity compensation for 3D images, Apple’s method would employ a more accurate, hardware-based approach.
