First Possibly *Real* iPhone 5 Video – Shows It Booting up

With just a week to go for the iPhone 5 launch and among the numerous iPhone 5 leaks comes a new video today.

What’s different in this video is that, this is the first video which shows the iPhone 5 booting up, only to show an error as follow:

This device is not registered as part of the iPhone Developer Program. If you are a member of the program, please register your device in the @@url@@.

This leak looks legit also cause of the fact that the Apple logo and the model numbers at the back have been taped out possibly because this unit must be stolen/leaked from a Foxconn factory itself.

As seen from the video, the new iPhone does indeed seem to have a Nano-SIM card slot.

Check out the video after the break:

A Taiwanese Popstar Accidentally Leaks the iPhone 5 [Rumor]

Adding to the on-going overdose of iPhone leaks, a new image has been leaked by a very well known Taiwanese-born Popstar “Jimmy Lin” who seems to be highly popular in China.

Jimmy seems to have leaked the image on his Weibo account. (Weibo is just like Twitter and Facebook combined, but widely used in China)

He said “It has been confirmed today that the iPhone 5 will indeed become longer” and that “It uses the same iPad aluminium alloy and a 4-inch screen, which has become thinner so it feels almost the same in hand” and then posted the following image:

From the looks of it, the image does seem real enough!

With just about 10 days to go for the iPhone 5 event, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out! Keep following us for more news on iPhone 5 leaks!

Apple’s New Headphones – A Short Overview

iPhone 5 launch is just around the corner. The internet is buzzing with new leaks about the iPhone 5 almost every day.

Today a new video has surfaced, which shows the supposedly new design of the Headphones which are to be bundled with the next iPhone.

As you can see from the image above, the design seems pretty unique and straight out of a sci-fi flick!

What’s interesting is the fact that it seems to have individual microphones on the ear buds itself. And I’m pretty sure this means theres some advanced active noise cancellation being implemented.

For those who are unaware, Here’s some short info about noise cancellation headphones from Wiki:

Noise-cancelling headphones are headphones that reduce unwanted ambient sounds (i.e., acoustic noise) by means of active noise control (ANC). This involves using one or more microphones placed near the ear, and electronic circuitry which uses the microphone signal to generate an “antinoise” signal. When the antinoise signal is produced by the speaker driver in the headphone, destructive interference cancels out the ambient noise as heard within the enclosed volume of the headphone.

We might just see a paradigm shift in earphone technology. Sure there are plenty of active noise cancellation based headphones out there, but those cost a bomb!

Birthdays for iPhone – The Most Beautiful and Simplest Birthday Reminder App for iPhone [Giveaway]

The Apple AppStore is now probably the most extensive application repository with apps for almost anything!

I’ve personally been looking around for an app to remind me of my friends birthdays, there were tons of alternatives but none which provided me with just the right blend of features I was looking for.

1. Facebook friends birthday fetching: Since almost all of my friends are on Facebook, fetching data from Facebook was what I was looking for.

2. Adding Entries to the iPhone’s Calendar: This was important to me since I want reminders set not just on my iPhone, but also to every device (including Android) and Google calendar syncing was one of the most required feature.

3. Locally set Notifications: Another obvious feature was that I should be reminded of my friends birthdays automatically without me needing to do anything!

4. Wishing on Facebook: Posting on the birthday boy/girl’s wall was also something I wanted to be able to do.

5. A Beaufitul interface!: This one was of the most importance to me. The app HAD to be have a beautiful UX.

Being an iPhone developer myself, I thought that this would be a good (personal) first app and something which would be useful to others as well.

Birthdays for iPhone is now available on the AppStore. I strongly suggest you go buy it simply cause I couldn’t find any other birthday reminder app that had just the perfect blend of the above 5 core features!

Top Casino and Poker Apps for iPhone and iPad

iPhones, iPads, and other mobile devices continue to increase in popularity, driven in no small part by the thousands of games and apps available for them. Fans of gambling games have had plenty to enjoy from the release of the first iPhone, as Apple Texas Hold’em was one of the very first apps developed and distributed for the iPhone. Mobile phone gambling is one of the fastest growing niches of mobile gaming, with not only plenty of great apps to choose from but even more in the pipeline and on the way.

Most gambling apps fall into one of two broad categories: one that let you play for free or play chips or apps that let you wager for real money. While there are a few apps that let you play for real money, the vast majority are for amusement purposes only, or to learn the rules for various casino games or how to count cards at blackjack. Both Apple and Google has been highly restrictive when it comes to approving apps for gambling for real money, so most of the free and premium apps you find will only let you compete for play money.
