Kazaa Releases iOS App For $10/Month Streaming Service.

  • September 20, 2011 9:34 am

Remember Kazaa? For early twenty-somethings it was “the” way to get music in the late, late 90′s and early 2000′s. The past several years, however, have seen the service (as well as many other similar ones) completely redone or closed entirely. Kazaa looked like it would face the same dead end fate.

But the company is back with a new subscription service and iOS app…

Cydia Found Hanging Out On Lexus Dealship iPad.

  • September 18, 2011 11:51 am

Regardless of what you think of Lexus as a car brand, you have to respect them for blatantly putting their pro-jailbreak mindset front and center. The iPad you see above was found in an Orlando, Florida Lexus dealership that just so happens to have been jailbroken as it sports the infamous unofficial Cydia app installer.

Now we’ll just have to wait and see if Lexus pusses out like Toyota when Apple came along crying foul…

Samsung Unleashes Lawyers With Countersuits Against Apple In Australia And Germany.

  • September 18, 2011 11:40 am

Apple’s legal team is probably a beast to deal with. But Samsung is far from giving up or merely rolling over. The tech giant just filed another countersuits in Australia alleging that Apple is the real infringer with their iPhone and iPad lines…

Newly Discovered Code Signals iMessage Support In OS X’s iChat.

  • September 14, 2011 3:06 pm

iMessage is set to be one of iOS 5′s biggest features. The beauty of it is simple, fast, and seamless messaging across devices over data instead of traditional cellular/SMS protocols. Because of this, non-cellular devices like WiFi-only iPad and iPod Touch devices can also make use of iMessage.

Truth be told, such a setup is hardly new. RIM got the multi-device chatting down pat with BlackBerry Messenger. Since then other similar services such as AOL Instant Messenger, Kik, Google Talk and more have sprung up. For now, anyway, iMessage in its current form is more aken to Kik Messenger or BlackBerry Messenger — stuck on mobile. But if newly discovered code tucked within OS X Lion is any indication of what’s to come, iMessage could soon make the jump to the desktop…

For those of you out there that haven’t really found the bluetooth keyboard of your dreams, we might just have a solution for you.

Apple Keeps Chastity Belt Like Security On Pre-Release Hardware

  • September 10, 2011 1:17 pm

We all know how secretive Apple can get about everything that is Apple. During the interview process I have had (on multiple occasions) I have heard first hand just the security measures that go on in their campus headquarters in Cupertino. We have seen over the past 4 years what goes into their hardware’s secret identity before release date. After the iPhone 4 ‘lost prototype’ debacle last year, Apple took matters into their own hands with the mobsters sent to locate the “iPhone 5″ lost at yet another bar.

With well over a year since the release of the very first iPad, those that were given the hardware before release are finally aloud to speak to what it’s like. And that is just what a certain developer of a very successful iPad app did a couple days ago. The team over at Business Insider release their conversation with with the developer and it actually sounds pretty interesting the lengths Apple will go to prevent leaks.

Adobe Finally Flashes Its Goods At Your iOS Devices!

  • September 10, 2011 4:19 am

Remember a time when phones didn’t have the ability to view Flash content? I sure as hell don’t…Oh wait…I have an iPhone…d’oh! Yeah, 2011 is almost coming to a close and the revolutionary device in my pocket has a darn of a time playing Flash videos. Last year we were graced with SkyFire which rocked some Flash content on the fly. While, at least for me, rarely working I finally did a way with the app and went on “enjoying” the mobile web minus Adobe’s Flash.

Hopefully this is a thing of the past! Adobe is finally bringing decent Flash support to iOS devices. Like SkyFire, Adobe’s latest release of Flash Media Server will feature ‘on the fly’ transcoding to convert flash content to your everyday normal HTTP stream. Adobe’s Flash Media Interactive Server 4.5 is available now to publishers at a cool $4,500 while the Streaming Server is coming in at $995.

Samsung Permanently Barred From Selling 10-Inch Galaxy Tab In Germany.

  • September 9, 2011 9:24 am

It’s been a long, laborious road for Samsung overseas in Europe and The Netherlands thanks to a slew of lawsuits filed by Apple against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Android tablets. Today it gets worse — much worse. The judge overseeing the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit in Germany’s Dusseldorf court just issued a permanent ban on the 10″ Galaxy Tab. What it means is that stores will no longer be able to sell the 10″ tablet nor will Samsung Germany be able to sell it outside of Germany.

Samsung has already responded to the ruling, citing their (obvious) disappointment, and vowing to vigorously defend their own intellectual property as well as pursuing Apple’s violations of Samsung’s patents and IP.

Meanwhile yesterday Apple continued their attacks on Samsung’s Galaxy S products with new lawsuits filed in Japan also seeking to stop the sale of Saumsung’s most popular line of smartphones and tablets this year.

Keep the popcorn hand as we have a feeling this battle between two giants is far from over…
