Apple Shipping Two New iPhones in Sept.

Aug 19th, 2013

Not only does it look like Apple is set to unveil two new iPhones in September, but it will be shipping them then as well. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Apple has asked assembler Hon Hai Precision Co. (better known as Foxconn) to start shipping its two new iPhone models early next month.

Apple has typically made its phones available within a week or so of their announcement, so this news is not particularly surprising. What is interesting is that this further confirms Apple will announce two different phones at its event next month — the iPhone 5S, as well as the rumored budget spinoff, the iPhone 5C.

According to the WSJ, Apple’s suppliers began working on components for two different phones in June — one with a metal casing similar to the iPhone 5, and another, lower-cost version. We’ve seen plenty of leaks purporting to be of the iPhone 5C, so this just fans the flames.

Another rumor seeming to quickly gain credence is that of a gold color option for the iPhone 5S. AllThingsD today is reporting that its sources have confirmed the phone will definitely be available in gold.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C at an event on September 10. It did not respond to WSJ’s request for comment.

Next iPhone Will Have Thinner Screen

Jul 17th, 2012

Apple’s next smartphone iteration will reportedly pack new screen technology that shaves a small amount from the screen thickness.

According to the Wall Street Journal’s sources, the new in-cell technology integrates the touch sensor into the screen, shedding around half a millimeter and due to the reduced space between screen and user, could well improve image quality.

Although a mere 0.5 mm reduction may not mean much for the phone’s frame, it could help offset any weight added by a larger screen.

The Wall Street Journal also reports that the still-LCD screens will be made by joint venture Japan Display, LG Display and Sharp.

Manufacturers are apparently battling to maintain high-yield rates on the new screen technology, which until now has been limited to bigger displays.

The World Made of Cardboard

May 3rd, 2011

How amazing is this? Independent web designer and Paper Crave reader, Melody Chou, recently had the chance to work as part of a design team at Taiwan-based Medialand to create a mind-blowingly awesome paper project for their client, clothing company Giordano. The client had already been using cardboard in their promotional materials, and the team used the material to develop entire cities made of cardboard!

Taiwan, France, England, Italy, America, China, Japan, and Spain were all given the “cardboard treatment” as part of Giordano’s “Say Hi to the World!” concept, and I’m simply blown away by the detail in all of the cardboard creations.

iPhone5 Rumour Mill Turns Again

Feb 13th, 2011

The Wall Street Journal has weighed in on rumors of Apple’s smaller iPhone, and citing “people familiar with the matter” the publication says that the rumors are likely true. One such familiar person reportedly saw a device half the size of the iPhone 4, bearing the codename “N97,” and said that the handset will be only about half the size of the original, and at only around half the price too. Amazingly, those anonymous sources continued to divulge information, expressing the idea that Apple could finally make its MobileMe cloud service suite free, and that it just might be the platform from which Apple could finally launch a streaming music platform and lessen the need for all those gigabytes of flash storage in your pocket. We’ll let you know if or when any of that happens, okay?

Offline Peer To Peer File Sharing

Oct 31st, 2010

[Aram Bartholl] is building his own file sharing network that screws those fat cats who want to control your freedom. He’s added file cache devices throughout NYC (five so far but more to come) that are anonymous and free to use. Upload what you want, download what you want. They’re completely offline which means monitoring who’s doing what gets a lot harder and quite possibly requires a warrant from a Judge.

As for the dangers of a malicious USB device; I think everyone knows they’re taking on some risk when connecting to a USB plug protruding from a brick wall. Not to mention most people will mostly end up putting porn on them…
