Apple has confirmed that its new iOS-compatible version of iPhoto hit the 1 million user mark only in 10 days after its release.That’s not app download but unique users.Giving the apps universal nature. Its likely that many are installing it atleast twice i.e on iPhone or even in iPod touch and in iPad.iPhoto is a great piece for new iPad’s capabilities.iOS app helps you to compare your photo side by side,grab and move corners around to crop photos.
I stumbled across this collection of (very rare) Facebook UI shots over time. You may find some of the newer ones on the Internet Archive but it indeed is amazing to see how the User Interface of Facebook has changed over time, since it started from the dorm of Mark Zuckerberg. It starts from when Facebook was “thefacebook” uptil now. Enjoy.
Since the release of iPad 2, almost every app that first upgraded to iPad has now upgraded to use the enhanced features of iPad 2 – mainly the dual cameras and the fast processor. iPad has surely changed the way we used to read. With it’s slick easy-to-handle form factor, you can read with great ease and with it’s 10-hour long battery life, you don’t have to worry about recharging when on long journeys. I am going to list 5 iPad 2 apps that will make your reading experience pleasurable.
The biggest craze in the world of smartphones this year is set to be the introduction of dual core processors with the world's first dual core handset, the LG Optimus 2X, already going on sale in Asian and European markets. Although beaten to the finish line in the United States by the Motorola Atrix 4G, the high powered LG smartphone is now coming to the United States in the form of the T-Mobile G2x which, as the name change would suggest, has had some slight modifications for the US market. However, aside from an increase in data connection speeds, these modifications are only slight and mean that US smartphone users will be able to enjoy the same great phone that is causing such a sensation elsewhere in the world.
It seems like the rumors are really coming to life. Specially when these rumors form part of Chinese news stories. According to China Times (yes, it’s China Times this time!), the next iPhone dubbed as iPhone 5 has already gone into trial production stage at Foxconn and a leaked sample iPhone 5 suggests that it will have an overhauled metallic back cover that will help solve the reception problem so rampant in iPhone 4.
Data Structures form a primary component of almost any algorithm and therefore a strong background and understanding of the primary data structure algorithm is a must for any programmer. I have compiled a list of popular data structure books. Some of these books target a specific language e.g. Java or C/C++ or Python etcetera while others focus on general data structure algorithms and techniques. Here’s the list:
To start off with, Adobe decided that the ability to add bookmarks on a PDF document should only be available to those users who pay. In other words, you cannot add bookmarks in your PDF documents in Adobe Reader. You need to have the editor which is paid. Imagine the pain of reading a thick PDF book and saving the page number manually every time you close the document. There’s another way adding bookmarks in your PDF documents right inside Adobe Acrobat Reader. Here’s how:
IE9 RC was already around for a couple of months now with news that Microsoft will be taking a leap ahead with the new Internet Explorer 9. It has landed now: Microsoft has released the final version of IE9 with a whole bunch of improvements. The main highlight is a new domain for browsers: utilizing GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit) for improved HTML5 and video encoding/decoding. Up until now, browsers mainly utilized CPUs even for compute intensive jobs. This changes with the new IE9.
How about replacing your car’s in-built audio and navigation system with the new iPad2? One company that modifies cars to place custom audio systems or as we call it ‘pimping up your car’ – managed to squeeze in an iPad2 into the dashboard of Ford’s F150.
Previously I covered how to get the famous Android Lock screen on your iPod Touch or iPhone. It really looks cool but the problem arises when you forget your lock pattern. There have been hundreds of such cases where you are locked out of your own iPod Touch because you forgot the lock pattern and there’s no simple way of uninstalling or removing the app.
This is a fresh rumor roundup for the next iPhone, the iPhone 5. Normally I discard rumors especially since everyone’s posting something about the next iPhone but when these rumors come from a source that has proven to be a good intelligence source for iPod Touch then we better listen.
LG seems to be having a lot of firsts in the mobile phone industry this year. They were the first phone manufacturer to announce a dual core smartphone in the form of the Optimus 2X, as well as the first to produce a 3D enabled tablet. LG have also extended this 3D technology to their smartphones with the latest LG Optimus 3D, which will be the first phone to come with 3D technology included.
The last couple of years have seen a resurgence in the popularity of 3D technology, largely due to Hollywood movie studios cracking down on movie piracy by offering something that the pirates cannot replicate. While many have seen the resurrection of 3D glasses at cinemas as little more than a gimmick, there is no denying that with recent technological improvements 3D has become hugely popular again. So much so that it is now migrating to other areas of the technological and entertainment world.

LG has traditionally lagged behind in the high-end smartphone market with Apple, HTC and Samsung pushing the industry forwards. With the official unveiling of LG's latest batch of smartphones however, it seems that the tides are starting to turn in the Korean company's favour. Alongside the Optimus Black, which will be the latest phone to take the title of "world's thinnest smartphone" as well as having the world's brightest phone screen, the LG Optimus 2X looks set to push LG to the forefront of the industry with a number of significant firsts in terms of hardware and software features.

Microsoft is finally seeing the light as possibilities for opening doors to homebrew micro-developers have been spearheaded by Brandon Watson, Director of Developer Experience for Windows Phone 7 who has taken the soft approach of dealing with hackers as if they are merely a Windows hosting reseller. By inviting the likes of George “Geohot” Hotz, Rafael Rivera, Chris Walsh and Long Zheng for an alliance, the said executive has been dubbed as Microsoft's tech evangelist. So why is that such a big deal?
