Apple Eyeing on Bringing Movie Streaming to iCloud Services

Apple Released the iCloud Services for public yesterday along with the release of the iOS 5 update and Mac OSX Lion 10.7 update yesterday for the users to share music, videos, books, application data and backups, from your Mac and iOS devices in Apple’s cloud with 5GB free storage space and premium upgrade options for more storage space.

You get the cloud storage with lots of storage space and multiple devices connectivity options and other media options,but apple thinking about expanding the services to add some spice to it.According to Los  Angeles Times apple is thinking about going Hollywood with the services and bringing Movies to the iCloud Services.

If the sources are to be believed,they are already in the talks with major hollywood studios to finalize a deal which would eventually allow the consumers of the iCloud service to buy the Movies  via iTunes and access them on any Apple device.The services are expected to begin in the last month of this year or the first quarter of 2012.

This is rather an interesting service concept since having stored digital films in the cloud, instead of allowing the  buyers to manage the digital copy of it  themselves on a computer or other device, will definitely help the users so that they can make it accessible easily anytime anywhere.

iPhone 4S Reviews Are Out

Reviewing the iPhone 4S is in many ways a lot like reviewing the original iPhone 4, except that it’s not. The device, which was just announced at a special event on Apple’s campus, is very much the same phone the company released in June of 2010 — but it’s also something completely new.

The Verge:

The iPhone 4S is a great device for some, but what if you’re thinking of upgrading from an iPhone 4? That’s a tougher call. The phone is faster, to be sure, and has an amazing camera. And of course, you can’t get Siri unless you have a 4S… but I just don’t know if any of those reasons are compelling enough to convince previous buyers to upgrade. The concept is a particularly hard sell for Verizon customers. The gap between this year’s model and last year’s model isn’t as wide as Apple would probably like.

For this review, I returned to the iPhone after a fairly long period of using and testing other devices. Spending a week with Apple’s newest phone, I’m reminded again of just what makes the company’s products so special. It’s not specs, services, or apps. This phone is not perfect. Certainly it can be improved. But there is something here, beyond the screen and CPU, beyond iCloud, something under the surface. Some intangible spark.

Is this the best phone ever made? That’s debatable. But I can tell you this: the iPhone 4S is pretty damn cool.

Techcrunch:

-”The iPhone 4S blows away the iPhone 4 when it comes to speed.”
– “The true killer feature of the device is Siri.”
– “The amount of times Siri hasn’t been able to understand and execute my request is astonishingly low. I’ll say something that I’m sure Siri won’t be able to understand, and it gets it.”
– “Because it uses server-side software to decipher what you’re saying (likely using Nuance-licensed technology), you have to be connected to the Internet in order for Siri to work.”

First iPhone 4S Delivered to German Customers before Official Launch

Yesterday we reported about  some of the carriers have already started shipping the iPhone 4S the successor to the iPhone4 which was revealed last week in an event and got a record breaking opening for preorders.

The device is hitting the stores on 14th of this month,but already before the official launch,German customers have got their first hands on the iPhone4S right before the official launch which is still 3 days away from now, as reported earlier today by MacRumors.

There’s been a lot of criticism from the enthusiasts about the iPhone 4S mostly because of them expecting a iPhone 5 with a new design and features but the overall response to the sells shows us a contrasting picture, with earlier reports about AT&T selling 200,000 devices in 12hrs of preorders, other reports suggests that the device hit the 1 million mark within first 24 hours of its pre-orders and going out of stock in most of the places.

 

iPhone 4S vs iPhone 4 : Side by Side Photo Comparison

iPhone 4S was launched after a product gap of more than a year. People were disappointed to see Apple using exactly the same chassis for the next iPhone instead of a brand new design.

People will be more disappointed to know that the new iPhone 4S doesn’t even mention that its a 4S (just like iPhone 3G or 3GS). It looks totally identical to the iPhone 4 from outside and there’s no way of telling apart an iPhone 4S from an iPhone 4 simply by comparing the back.

The only way to differentiate would be the side antenna rims.

Check out the side by side comparison of iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 below:

iPhone 4S Benchmarked – 2x faster than iPhone 4

Recent post on MacRumors shows that a video had surfaced yesterday about the iPhone 4S tested for its capability with a couple of benchmarks. This test includes the new feature “Siri” which was revealed at the launch of “Lets talk iPhone” event at Apple Town Hall in the company’s own campus in Cupertino, California.

It seems that, the people at AppVV got hold of the yet to be released iPhone 4S before its official launch (which is still three days away) and they benchmarked it to compare its performance with other phones. The video they uploaded also shows a setting in Siri – iPhone 4S’ voice recognition feature – called Raise to Speak .

For people who are not familiar with the term ‘Siri’ for them, Siri is a new feature of the iPhone 4S which is a software personal assistant.Which means, Simply by speaking a request in natural language, Siri will perform a task to the best of its ability.
