iPhone 5 Leaked Images 2012

I thought it would be a bit of fun to take a look at all of the potential iPhone 5 leaked pictures.

On a side note, I do not condone leaks, and all photos below have been sourced from elsewhere on the internet.

Why to buy iPhoto for iPad

 

Français : Logo de l'iPad

I have always been a big fan of the iPhoto Application for Mac, and was extremely pleased when Apple announced that they would be making it available for the iOS platform. Some people have been sceptical about the release, saying that it isn’t needed, but this is why I believe that it is needed…

 

  1. The iPad is already a brilliant device to create digital content thanks to Apps such as; Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Garage Band and iMovie. The addition of iPhoto means that the iPad is now truly just as good for media creation as a Mac is (assuming that you favour the touch interface, which I do).
  2. At a price of £2.99, this software is so cheap for what it is. By Apple releasing iPhoto at this price, they have done something which has needed to be done for a while… Shown people you do not have to pay the extortionate prices that companies have been charging for similar products on iOS and Mac.
  3. If you take photos on your iPhone, and want to edit them on the go, it means that you do not have to pull a heavy laptop out to edit, it means that you can just pull out your sleek little iPad.

Samsung Galaxy S III (3) Release Date – an iPhone Killer?

So, the Samsung Galaxy S III is due to be released in the first half of this year. The new smart phone was expected by some to have been “released at last weeks’ Mobile World Congress”1, but they have delayed this for now. The new handset is due to deliver some jaw dropping features which I’m sure the company hopes will be a killer to the iPhone:

  • Quad Core Processor.
  • 1080p Resolution.
  • 2GB Ram
  • Android 4.0
If it turns out that these features do come with the new Samsung Galaxy S, then i can see that it would be in a good situation to compete with the iPhone. My opinion, however, is that the Apple brand appears more attractive, and is therefore more likely to sell more devices.

The New iPad (3) – My Impressions

The new iPad (strangely not named the iPad 3) was released this week in a large scale event by Apple. The main features of the new device are:

  • Retina Display (Better screen quality than a 1080p TV Display)
  • HD Video recording
  • 5MP Camera
  • New A5X chip

But what does this mean to a normal human being (if there is such a thing)? Well basically, it means that the screen will be amazing quality, and that the camera is considerably better than that of the first iPad.
