Memorial Day Weekend Bonfire

That’s not me in the video, I actually arrive right at the end of the video.

I love that a shop vac was used to feed air to the flames.

Apple’s new iPhone (4G?) will have video chat!

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010 | Business | 1 Comment


Well this can’t be tremendously surprising. Apparently American Beauty director Sam Mendes is in the process of putting together a series of commercials for Apple’s next iPhone, which according to a tipster is being referred to internally as the Mammoth / N90. Besides that tip (with a handful of juicy details), a trusted source has confirmed to us that the ads will feature at least one spot where a mother and daughter are having a video chat conversation using the new front-facing camera that’s been spied on the face of that iPhone floating around Vietnam andNorthern California. Adding weight to this story, a cursory search on Twitter revealed that there’s at least one actress who is up for a role in the “f***ing apple commercial” in New York, and another fellow who is auditioning for spots in California. We don’t know much more than that, but we’re fairly confident that this confirms video chat is coming to the next iPhone, and that that said iPhone isn’t very far from our grasp. Remember folks, June 7th is just a kiss away.

I think we all knew it was happening, just good to see things firming up.  It’s definitely a must have technology for the next gen phone.

Adobe launches Flash Player 10.1 beta for Android!

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010 | Business | 2 Comments

From the Adobe Newsflash:

The Adobe® Flash® Platform has received several big updates. Adobe recently launched a public beta of Flash Player 10.1 for Android™ at Google I/O, the first full version of the Flash Player designed specifically for mobile devices. In addition, Adobe Creative Suite® 5 software has now started shipping, with Adobe Flash Builder™ 4 and Adobe Flash Catalyst™ now part of Adobe Creative Suite 5 Web Premium.

This means full flash support on the Android 2.2 platform.

Some research reveals not only will the mobile Flash player support flash, but it will also tap into accelerometers, and handle gestures.  Adobe has implemented many performance enhancements to make sure the mobile platform isn’t as “gimp” as Apple would like to lead us to believe.

Steve Jobs to do keynote at WWDC 2010: iPhone 4G to follow, HTML5 authorware?

Monday, May 24th, 2010 | Business | No Comments

I saw that Steve jobs will be doing the keynote of the Worldwide Developers Conference 2010.

This can only mean a few things;

  • The new iPhone 4G will be announced (very likely)
  • Apple will move away from AT&T (hopefully, I’m getting doubtful though)

I also believe there will be other announcements regarding development environments for HTML5.  Given Steve Jobs’ strong HTML 5 support over the previous months, and the recent love/hate relationship (mostly hate) with Adobe — something tells me we will be seeing Apple competing with software for HTML 5.

Wi-Fi Sync Rejected by Apple App Store (of course) — only for Jailbroken iPhones now

Monday, May 17th, 2010 | Business | No Comments

I had posted a few weeks ago that a developer had submitted a wireless sync app to the App Store.

Unfortunately it seems the app has been rejected, and will now be available only in Cydia for $9.99

It’s getting annoying how the iPhone platform could be so cool, but isn’t because Apple says we won’t like it.  That’s what happens when you rely upon that platform.  I get closer to going Android every day.
