1-Bit Camera app

The apps keep bringing retro sexy back. First it was Instagram with its Lomo-esque filters or polaroid film borders. Now we have 1-Bit Camera that takes photography back to when we had digital photography but it was still in its infancy. Harking back to my Apple Quicktake camera that let me take digital photos but with so much noise they were basically useless (compared to the slick ISO of my Canon DSLR). Not long before we see cassette tape shaped iPhone cases. Oh wait.

Project Delta: iResign – Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs QuitsToday some news came out of Apple that surprised and shocked the consumer electronics world. Steven P. Jobs was leaving Apple (sort of). Before I knew it the news was everywhere and I couldn’t escape it. My Flipboard was suddenly filled with varying images of Mr. Jobs in his classic black top with jeans as the tech world reeled with predictions of death and destruction. Some tweets obviously went a little crazy with predictions of the end of the world, after all the East coast suffered an earthquake, a hurricane is barreling in, and then Steve Jobs released his latest product: iResign (sorry couldn’t help it on that last one). Of course the other concern that people should have rather than just what will this mean for Apple shares tomorrow morning is the actual health of Mr. Jobs. He did after all say himself that he would step down when he couldn’t carry out his day to day duties. That therefore means that something dramatic must have changed. He has definitely changed the expectation of consumers with his innovation and marketing. I mean just look at something as simple as the iPod. He didn’t invent harddrive based MP3 players, he just made it better. He didn’t invent the trackpad, he just made it magical. All in all his influence can definitely been seen by the sheer fact his Wikipedia page has already gone thru no less than 45 revisions since the news broke. Last time Steve left Apple it floundered and was nearly dead. Steve brought it back. Now I think that Apple will continue its rise as we hear rumors of the iPhone 5. I honestly am not a HUGE Apple fan boy but I do appreciate their quality. Right now though, I just hope that Steve will recover well. I am sure in his back pocket he might have “One more thing…” All the best Steve

The Apple Store is down… G-bye White Macbook

Apple Store Down::UPDATE:: We all should have a moment of silence for the white Macbook. It won’t have any descendants.

I wonder what this means… New products or just regular maintenance? Hmmm. I guess in a few hours or so we will know more about what this means. I think it would be interesting if Apple pulls a surprise hat trick and launches products outside of their usual schedule.

I know there are some friends of mine that would be hot if they found out their few month old iPad2 wasn’t the hotness. Just on that stance alone I am dubious as to this heralding a new iPad release, but maybe some glimpse at iPhone5 foolery. Maybe. Even that is suspicious as the iPhones’ usually get attention from Mr. Jobs.

iSprint

Oh boy… Here goes the rumor mill again; though there could be some credibility to this. I know there are the iPhone5 hints wandering around but the latest in the last few days points to Apple releasing their very popular device to Sprint and T-Mobile as well.

I have been a Sprint customer for years and I have seen the company go through some serious downs and with its embrace of Android some continual ups lately. The release of their flagship HTC EVO really was a shot in the arm as it was the premier Android device at CES year back. They also had some first-to-market opportunities with its marriage with Wi-Max and their MiFi hotspots like Overdrive.
