iPhoto App Now Arrives in App Stores

The beginning of digital technology in photos has paved the way to making more possibilities in enhancing photos.  Aside from digital cameras having several features that lets you make adjust its settings to make it appropriate to the current surroundings of the subject that is being taken, there are several software that can be downloaded in laptops, PCs, smartphones and tablets that can remove flaws and enhance a photo.

One of the software that photo fanatics can include in their iOS enabled devices is the iPhoto. Just recently, the iPhoto App, which is the last member of iLife suite, is now available in the App Store with universal access to iOS devices such as iPad 2 or higher, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Initially, users need to upgrade their operating systems to iOS 5.1 but there are reports that Apple already enabled this application to be installed on iOS 5.0.1 devices too.

Users of this app claims to have a remarkable experience upon opening the software with the impressive and unique user interface design. The app also has several options and capabilities but in such a way that it is non-destructive to the original since the changes can be easily undone. For a low price of $4.99, you can get an amazing photo editing that is even way much better than Adobe’s Photoshop Touch.

iPhoto’s got a lot of interesting functions but when using it through the iPhone, users may get a little lost due to the absence of tool tips. This feature can really help a user in making the most out of the features present in the app.

Another interesting feature of the iPhoto’s user interface is it adapts to the iPhone or iPad owner’s customary usage of the app. However, it can be a bit confusing for starters, especially to those who got used to the usual graphical user interface.


What Users Can Expect Upon Starting the iPhoto

Upon opening the iPhoto app, users will see a glass shelf like appearance with virtual photo albums. The albums will be synced with the desktop version of iPhoto. The basic virtual albums that are initially present in this app are the special blue photo album which connects to your device’s camera shots, and other albums which gives you access to your images that are edited, favorited, flagged, etc. You can also get a ‘journals’ view where you can see a virtual scrapbook.


Basic Features of iPhoto

The basic features of iPhoto which most users are already aware of are the auto-enhance, orientation, favourite, flag, and hide. iPhone doesn’t have the orientation control, though. Auto-enhance does a good improvement on the photo but users should not expect miracles to happen, in the same way with other photo enhancing apps. With the orientation tool, users can rotate images to 90 degrees clockwise but to turn it counterclockwise, users should hold the icon to let pop-over for this feature show up. Other features can be easily implemented such as tapping the ‘flag’ icon to flag a photo, tapping the ‘favorite’ will mark the photo as favorite and tapping the ‘X’ will hide the image, without necessarily deleting it.

Other amazing features of iPhoto are its synchronization with the iCloud which is an online storage application. This way, you can save your photos online and access it from any device. Another feature which can’t be found in other photo enhancing applications is its ability to select similar images. By tapping a thumbnail, iPhoto will select from the 20 photos forward and backward from the chosen image. It will then, select photos with similar contrast, luminance and color.

Do you Want to Own an iPad

If you are the kind of person who loves anything that has to do with technology, you may have been considering purchasing an iPad. They’ve been out on the market for a little while now but you decided you would wait to see how well the sold and if the prices would come down on them. If you are also someone who owns any Apple product, such as an iPhone or a MacBook, you know what great products they are, so this may be why you want to own an iPad. Before you purchase one, however, you may want to know what is so great about this device and what precisely it does. If this is true, here’s the inside scoop.

The Breakdown

An iPad is a tablet computer manufactured by Apple. This is the same company that makes the ever popular MacBook and the iPhone. If you have or have seen an iPhone or an iPod Touch, you have a general idea of what an iPad is already.  An iPad is nothing more than a glorified iPhone/iPod Touch. It’s just a bit larger and a bit more expensive. The iPad comes in two different models. One model will only connect to a Wi-Fi connection for you to use the internet while the other model will connect to a 3G cell phone connection or Wi-Fi. When you purchase the 3G model, you will have to purchase a 3G package for it through your cell phone provider and these can be pretty pricey! You’d probably be better off with just the Wi-Fi model unless you want to spend extra bucks for megabyte usage. An iPad won’t allow you to make phone calls like an iPhone would, but you will be able to text from it if you download a free texting app from the App Store. You will be able to surf the web using Safari as a browser and you will even be able to check your email. You can watch videos on YouTube and even use FaceTime to video chat with other friends who have iPads, iPhones or iPod Touches. You will be able to use PhotoBooth on your iPad to take pictures and post them on Facebook or Instagram. An iPad can also act as an e-reader and you can download books to read on it if you choose to.

Many uses

iPads are great things to own if you already like Apple products. They’re not too expensive and they do so many great things. If you were thinking about buying one, there are so many reasons why you would want to. You can use it for school or even just for pleasure. If you were thinking about getting an e-reader anyhow, why not get an iPad that does so much more? You’re seriously considering an iPad, so stop hesitating and go to your local Apple store today to check them out. You’ll only want one more once you do!

Apple offered $ 800 million to acquire DropBox

At least that tells us that the site Business Insider . The Cupertino company would have made ​​a proposal for redemption DropBox to acquire it for the modest sum of $ 800 million . Even if this does not seem illogical, this information is still to be taken lightly, for several reasons.

First, the information collected by Business Insider is by what we used to call a reliable source, since apparently this information come from a conversation would have heard a member of Business Insider between two people. The 2nd reason, and not least, is the founder of DropBox , Drew Houston, just invest a thousand million dollars in the company . This means that Drew Houston is certainly not about to write off $ 200 million just like that.

DropBox would certainly be a very good investment for Apple . DropBox is primarily a company that is profitable, with $ 100 million this year which would justify further that Apple makes an extra effort. In addition, it appears as one of the most interesting companies on the market for Apple . The acquisition of DropBox by Apple would allow it to surround the expertise of employees DropBox for its future storage service icloud .

For those not familiar with this company, DropBox is a service for storing and sharing files online. What is the strength of DropBox is its accessibility through any web browser, but using a multi-customer operating systems.

Steve Jobs promises the finest the world headquarters for Apple

On the evening of Tuesday, June 7, the day after the presentation of its new service icloud in San Francisco, Steve Jobs went to the Cupertino City Council, city of 60,000 people in Silicon Valley, where is the current seat Apple. The number one firm came to the apple make the establishment of a new headquarters which, in his own words, will look like “space shuttle has landed.” This construction should accommodate from 2015 some 12 000 employees (2800 only cons to the current headquarters, located at 1 Infinite Loop) and be erected on land purchased by the firm at the apple to Hewlett-Packard. A necessary move, “says Jobs, when his company has grown these last years” like a weed. “

Jobs plans to make this move an architectural event. “The office parks with lots of buildings, it is rather boring, we’d like to do something better than that.” Before continuing, sketches of the future circular building in support, “we know how to deploy the largest surface of curved glass for architectural purposes. I think we have the opportunity to build the most beautiful building in the world.” Amateur painter Maxfield Parrish, Jobs said at the 2003 New York Times : “Design is not only the look and feel, but also utility.”

Respect for the environment is also highlighted. “Today there are 3700 trees on the ground and I propose to double that number,” said Jobs, who is considering reintroducing apricot trees, which were there before. This should be appreciated by ecologists. Greenpeace has recently called to order Apple , pointing to the energy consumption of its data centers. This project will also recall memories of Steve Jobs himself, who during his childhood in Palo Alto and then a young student in Oregon, liked to stroll through the orchards .

It is also observed in this presentation the formidable talents of persuasion from Jobs. At a city councilor who asked him what are the benefits to Cupertino to host this new facility, Jobs said Apple is the biggest taxpayer in the city and it would be unfortunate if it deprives the municipality. When the same elected asked if Apple would provide Wi-Fi while Cupertino, Jobs replied: “But it’s you I pay taxes!” Ultimately, the contractor seems to have conquered the city council members, who applauded several times a member show up, smile, an iPad 2: “This is a wonderful technology. And my 11 year old son loves it. “

Apple is fighting for the name “app store”

The service of Amazon ” Android Appstore “, launched in mid March, caused the initiation of the judicial war machine from Apple .
For the Cupertino company, the name looks a little too much to his own “App Store” for IOS, which he filed in 2008.But Amazon, like Microsoft and several others of new technologies including Nokia , HTC and Sony Ericsson, the name “app store” is a generic term and can therefore not entitled to protection granted to marks.
An appeal against the trademark application was filed in January 2011 in the United States and in Europe in April.”App Store” signifying nothing other than “app store” and the term “app” (short for applications) existing before the arrival of the iPhone , Apple could lose its trademark rights.Indeed, on both sides of the Atlantic, it is impossible to file a generic term. There is no such mark “toy store” as an argument given by Microsoft.
But Amazon did not wait for the court decision, and the brand is still officially the property of Apple, both companies are squabbling for more than two months before the California courts.Apple asked the court to require Amazon to change their names (plus allowances and legal fees).Amazon has responded by citing the definitions of “blind” and “app” in the Oxford Dictionary Français, especially citing the words of Steve Jobs, Apple’s PD-G, who said in October 2010 that the App Store Apple was ” the easiest to use and the largest app store in the world, pre-installed on every iPhone “.
Apple has replied on May 19 , explaining that deny “based on their definitions, the words” app store “means a store together for app” . Apple also denies that the term “app store” is commonly used in the computer industry to speak of any mobile application store.

Apple soon to launch its streaming music service

Apple has already managed to conclude agreements with EMI, Warner and Sony, to launch a music service streaming cloud, reports Bloomberg . Universal would be the last. This service would allow iTunes users can access their music library from any Internet-connected device, thus avoiding having to sync iTunes on all their devices. Offer a priori similar, therefore, to the recently launched Google . The details could be provided on June 6, at Apple’s conference for developers.

The offer Apple still present several differences with those of Google and Amazon, which are really just storage space in the cloud. First, Apple users are not forced to upload their entire music library to Apple’s servers, thanks to agreements with record companies. Indeed, these agreements allow Apple to provide access to music provided by record companies (only one copy per title), and not uploaded by individual users.

Then, according to Techcrunch , which has unearthed a patent filed by the company in 2009, the Apple service could store some files locally, thus eliminating part of the problem of the connection (not connected, no access to the service ).

Samsung filed a complaint against Apple in turn

Earlier last week, Apple accused Samsung of copying its products. Korean immediately retaliated by pursuing the California manufacturer for patent infringement regarding the correction of errors in data signaling in mobile networks WCDMA.

Samsung Electronics has responded regarding the prosecution committed last week by Apple. In its complaint, the Korean manufacturer was accused of having appropriated the technologies to iPad, the iPhone and iPod for its design and smartphones Galaxy its shelves. Yesterday, the electronics giant has sued Apple in Seoul for five violations of patents, more than two in Tokyo and three in Manheim (Germany).
“We decided to actively respond to the lawsuit filed against us to protect our intellectual property and ensure the continuation of our innovation and our growth in the mobile communications industry,” Samsung said in a statement. In its complaint, the Asian manufacturer
involves Apple for patent infringement regarding the correction of errors in data signaling in mobile networks WCDMA (Wideband CDMA), connecting mobile phones to PCs so that the PC can use the wireless telephone and reduce the power consumption when transmitting data over HSPA (High Speed ​​Packet Access).

The Galaxy Tab first tablet that can compete with the iPad

The complaint filed last Friday by Apple in the U.S. reported that Samsung had copied the external features of the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad designing icons similar to those in Apple products. Last year Samsung became the first major manufacturer of consumer electronics to launch a tablet that can compete with Apple. Its range of smartphones based on Android, Google’s mobile OS is also coming into contention with the iPhone from last year. Apple had introduced the first iPhone in 2007 and announced its iPad tablet over a year ago. For its part, Samsung came out his smartphone S Galaxy in mid-2010, before launching his Galaxy Tab a few months later.

Gartner has predicted that sales would reach the iPad 48 million units this year, and that the tablets Android would approach 13.9 million. The firm gives Apple the IOS 68.7% share in the mobile OS market. Next year, the firm expects this proportion is expected to decline to $ 63.5%.

Apple sues Samsung for the Galaxy

Apple takes legal action against Samsung for having “copied” Apple’s intellectual property in some of its products.
Be mainly concerned the Nexus S, Epic 4G, 4G S Galaxy and Galaxy Tablet Tab.

According to the WSJ, these devices are cited as imitating the look and feel, that the appearance and user experience, iPhone and Apple iPad.

The charge of the Apple formula thus: ” rather than to innovate and develop its own technology and style unique to Samsung products smartphones and tablet computers, Samsung chose to copy the technology, user interface and style Apple’s innovative products in these counterfeit “.

Samsung joins HTC, Nokia and Motorola in the list of companies being sued by Apple for one reason or another. But if Samsung is particularly interesting since the two companies have trade: Apple in fact incorporates components manufactured by Samsung in its systems. The action brought by Apple against Samsung Will it affect their relationships?
