Nissan announces the Scratch Shield, a ‘self-healing’ iPhone case that promises to keep your valuable iOS smartphones blemish free.

Nissan Scratch Shield is a first of its kind iPhone case that uses the same innovation used on its self-healing automotive paint. It features a polyrotaxene based finish which has a chemical structure that reacts to change by restoring itself to its original form.

Nissan has already licensed the material to Japanese mobile carrier NTT DoCoMo and is planning to launch it commercially later this year.

The name says it all. It’s gonna be a smaller and cheaper iPhone.

Bloomberg shared the news that Apple is looking on doing a project which involves making the iPhone 4 “cheaper and smaller.” And it has a name already: “iPhone Nano.”

Moreover, the news agency reported that the new smartphone will have a price tag of about $200 with a two-year data plan. “Apple also is developing technology that makes it easier to use the iPhone on multiple wireless networks.”

The concept of the “iPhone Nano” is not new. In 2008, the Daily Mail said that this Apple device will be released on Christmas. However, it did not happen.

Last Thursday, the CDMA-enabled iPhone 4 was made available under the Verizon’s network. Also, the iPhone 5 is expected to be unveiled in June 2011.

"A source familiar with Apple's graphics strategy says the company will not only be upgrading its video core, but also going to multiple cores..."---AppleInsider

We’ve heard rumors that the iPad 2 will be sporting a 2048×1536 high resolution screen, but one big question has somehow emerged. The question is related to the GPU or graphics processing unit that will power up such high resolution. AppleInsider, a site dedicated to report rumors about the Apple products, claims that iPad 2 and probably iPhone 5 will be using a dual-core SGX543 GPU from Imagination Technologies.

As AppleInsider puts it:

“A source familiar with Apple’s graphics strategy says the company will not only be upgrading its video core, but also going to multiple cores, a feature that is designed into the SGX543 design. The most likely configuration of Apple’s next custom chip is reportedly the SGX543MP2, which pairs two SGX543 cores to work as one, offering around four times the capability of the previous A4 in graphics and video tasks.”

iOS 4.3 Codes Surface; Home Button Out?

Written on January 13, 2011 by R. Cruise

1 person

Enough of the news about the Verizon iPhone. Gadg got the scoop about the iOS 4.3 and the plan to remove the beloved home button.

In case you have the patience to dig into the iOS’s code, you’ll realize that iPhone3,1 is actually the AT&T iPhone 4 while iPhone3,2 is the Verizone iPhone. Moreover, iOS 4.3 is about to come and together with it are strings of speculations which pertains to two new-generation iPhones (4,1 and 4,2) and three iPads (2,1; 2,2; and 2,3). But Engadget made a wild guess and claimed that there will likely be GSM and CDMA variants of the next-gen models (plus a WiFi-only iPad). Also, another site called BGR mentioned that Apple is omitting the home button which will be replaced by multi-gestures technology. Rumors say that this feature is already tested by Apples employees in Cupertino.

The iPhone Alarm Glitch Hits 2011

"We're aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3." said spokeswoman Natalie Harrison.

New Year’s day didn’t start up that good with iPhone especially with the alarm clock. Came January 1, the alarm turned out to be suffering from a glitch. According to the frustration-filled tweets on Twitter, just when the clock strikes midnight, one off alarms will cease to turn off. Sounds like the Daylight Savings Time trouble we witnessed back in November huh?

Apple sent a word with Macworld magazine that they are completely aware of the problem.

“We’re aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.” said spokeswoman Natalie Harrison.

It should be singing off now. We’re hoping that Apple gives consideration on the matter.
