  • Apple's A4 ain't that special

    I really don’t understand what the big deal is about the A4. ARM designed the chip, Apple customized it, and Samsung built it. How is that any different from any other phone or device manufacturer? The A4 variant (an unfortunate name considering the A* naming convention in ARM chips) is just an A8-based chip with a setup specific to the iPhone or iPad’s PCB layout and processing needs.

  • Video: Yes, that's Crysis 2 running on the Xbox 360

    Part of the draw of Crysis 2 is that it’ll run just as well on your Xbox 360 or PS3 as it will on my PC. That’s what CryTek, the game’s developers, told the gaming press back in April. I saw the Xbox 360 version in action that day, and yeah: it looks insane for an Xbox 360 game; hard to believe it’s running on five-year-old hardware. But now you can look at the game… Read More

  • Pandora Working In The Background On iPhone 4. Awesome. [Video]

    By now, you’ve undoubtedly heard about all the big features of both iPhone 4 and iOS 4 (the artist formerly known as iPhone OS 4, which we heard about previously). But something that Apple didn’t address too much today was a feature I’m most looking forward to: background tasks. I’m pretty sure that being able to run apps like Pandora in the background while I do… Read More

  • By The Numbers: The iPhone 4 vs EVO 4G

    The Android vs iPhone fight is officially on. The EVO 4G fired the first shot last Friday when it launched nationwide on Sprint. The Android nation rallied behind the 4G super phone, which finally gave them a reason to be proud of their mobile platform of choice. They loudly pointed out all the EVO 4G’s iPhone-killing specs: huge 4.3-inch screen, 4G hotspot mode, dual cameras, and… Read More

  • So are you upgrading to iPhone 4?

    The “one more thing” wasn’t a move to Verizon, but it was pretty cool: FaceTime, Apple’s new video call service. But is it worth the upgrade? You tell us. Read More

  • iOS: Apple once again picks a Cisco name for one of its products

    This is nothing that a fat cheque won’t solve, but Apple has changed the name of iPhone OS to iOS. IOS is a named owned by Cisco Systems. You’ll recall that the name iPhone was also owned by Cisco. Is Apple so wealthy that it can go around taking trademarked name, paying the owners for the rights, or is the person in charge of coming up with names just a silly goose? Probably… Read More

  • Calamity strikes iPhone debut: network fails, Steve Jobs demands people close their laptops and turn off Wi-Fi

    As Steve Jobs was waiting (and waiting and waiting…) for a Web site to load on the new iPhone 4, a person in the crowd shouted “Try Verizon!” Awkward. For the record, Apple now blames the insane amount of Wi-Fi access points (500+) in the demo hall for the network fail. The fun and excitement of being live! Read More

  • Everything you need to know about the iPhone 4

    As expected, the iPhone 4 was announced today during Steve Jobs’ keynote at WWDC. Its flagship features are, of course, the extremely high resolution screen, video chat capability with FaceTime, and the sexy new form factor. But there’s more to the 4 than that, and even those seemingly self-explanatory new features deserve a closer look. Let’s see just what Apple’s… Read More

    The second biggest news out of San Fran today? The announcement of iPhone OS 4.0, Apple’s biggest improvement to the iPhone OS since, well, 3.0. This new version includes multi-tasking (although backgrounding would be the proper term), app folders, a new version of Mail, and a carrier unlock (Not officially sanctioned by Apple, but available nonetheless). The weirdest thing? It’s… Read More

    Thin Is In As The iPhone 4 Surpasses What The Human Retina Can See

    Today at the WWDC keynote in San Francisco, Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the newest iPhone — the iPhone 4. Jobs didn’t dance around the fact that the device has been seen before. While he didn’t mention Gizmodo specifically, he did note that, “now, some of you have already seen this.” But he quipped, “believe me, you ain’t seen it.” Jobs… Read More

  • Poll: Will it be the iPhone HD, iPhone 4G or something else?

    Everyone agrees that Apple will announce the next iPhone later today. but what’s it going to be called? You know as much as we do at this point. My money is on iPhone HD, but that’s based off of nothing besides pure speculation. Apple could opt for the 4G monikor if it indeed packs the goods for the next-gen network. Or it could be something entirely different. Leave your guess… Read More

  • iPhone HD faceplates popping up all over

  • Spoiler Alert: Another iPhone 4G/HD appears

    At this point in the game I’m pretty much bored with the whole iPhone HD leak meme. In a twisted way, the run up to Apple launches was a lot of fun. There was endless speculation but no real data and all of a sudden a guy in a turtleneck and jeans pops out and, like Mephisto, springs something new on the world. Let the rest of the CE manufacturers leak like sieves. I want my dance of… Read More

  • Rumor: Landor Associates working on upcoming iPhone campaign for Verizon

    The rumor mill is churning about a company called Landor Associates “working on an advertising campaign” for Verizon for the upcoming iPhone (you know, the one that the police knocked down Jason Chen’s door down to get generally more information about?). Ladnor has been working on Verizon branding since 2007 and is, according to a tipster, now hard at work preparing for… Read More

  • Are you there iPhone 4 rear casing? It's me, John

    As we approach the summer, traditionally a season of boredom in gadget blogging, it’s nice to have a few delightful if dopey renders of upcoming Apple products to tide us over until CES. The run up to June 22 or whenever the next Apple event will happen allows us to speculate endlessly on topics we know nothing about! Read More
