The new plastic polymer £5 notes are bonkers. They can’t be crumpled, are extremely hard (though not impossible) to burn, and some wonky stuff happens if you shine a laser through the queen’s face. By far the strangest revelation about this Money Of The Future? The £5 can be used as a rudimentary record player needle.
At this stage of the proceedings, Foxconn must be churning a triillion iPhone 5 units per second, getting ready for the September 12 launch. Nor surprisingly, it seems someone managed to smuggle one out of a factory in Jincheng, China. Not just parts, but an entire unit.
According to rumormongers, this allegedly leaked iPhone part supposedly shows a Near Field Communication (NFC) antenna that would work with iOS 6's passbook to turn your iPhone into a digital wallet. But is it really?
This is not the iPhone 5 but, if this were the iPhone 5, I wouldn't mind buying it. I like the soapbar design, loosely based on the false teardrop iPhone 5 poppycock that someone puffed out sometime last year.
Apple just seeded Beta 6 for iOS 5 to developer accounts. Beta 5 was released two weeks ago, and with the iPhone announcement due within a few weeks, iOS 5 should be just about done. Here's some of the polish added in Beta 6.
BGR is reporting that carriers are testing a 4G LTE model of Apple's next iPhone. According to BGR, an internal test build of iOS contains code that betrays 4G LTE trials.
As the launch of the iPhone 5 looms, the number of idiotic fakes is increasing exponentially. Every fanboy with Photoshop is trying to be the center of attention by posting blurry images made with their cute little sausage fingers. More »
We know that HTML 5 and stuff like Canvas, SVG, and WebGL is cool, but how cool are they? Cool enough to let you embed a message in a music video and have the band Ok Go dance it out for you.
Code pulled from the latest iOS 5 beta shows that Apple TV will support bluetooth keyboards and accessories. Which is cool, I guess. But what that means to you is that your Apple TV might be running apps soon.
Apple has seeded iOS 5 beta 3 to its devs. The third iOS 5 beta should mean that a final release is nearing: iOS 3 saw five betas before going final, and iOS 4 had four.
Twitter made its way into iOS 5 and its code may have inadvertently coughed up information about the next generation iPad.
The iOS and iPhone 5 rumors have been coming in at a whirlwind clip lately, and it can be a Sisyphean task trying to keep up with it all. So here's a quick roundup of everything that might have slipped under your radar.
The New Settings Control Panel
Apple announced iOS 5 today with 200 new features for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Grab a coffee and settle into your favorite reading chair as we're going to take a closer look at some of these changes.
Apple may offer its new iCloud service for free to folks with Mac OS X Lion, according to AppleInsider. To sweeten the deal, Lion may be priced extremely competitive and sold through the Mac App Store.
Just because most of us bought iPads doesn't mean that any of you should. There are plenty of devices, out now or coming soon, that can do some things as well—or better. Here's a roundup of the best:
I wasn't too impressed when I took a look at the Archos 5 and the guys at T3 are of the same mindset. The Archos 5 is good as a PMP, but the Android "concept just doesn't add up."
Archos just revealed what that curtain tease was all about: the 6th Gen Archos 5, 5G and 7 series PMPs. The 4.8" flagship 5G ditches the tired interface and buttons of the Gen-5 device for a slick UI and touchscreen-only operation. It's got Wi-Fi, HD video support, web browsing, email, a huge HDD (up to 250GB), and…
Lockergnome has somewhat convoluted way to game the Amazon system to get an extra 5% off of anything in the store, as long as it's actually sold by Amazon.com and not a third-party retailer. It's too long to list here, but the gist of it is that you tell Amazon you already own something, wait a day, and they'll…
I'm glad I never have to watch that Windows 386 video again, but this MS-DOS 5 promo video is just as bad. If not worse. Okay, it's probably worse. [YouTube]
