A new iPhone app is being released, it’s pretty gross, and it still costs $20. So why would anyone actually buy it? Well, it could potentially — and we mean potentially — save your life.
Known as Uchek, this particular app was created by Myshkin Ingawale — who aimed to give everyday, health-conscious citizens a way to conveniently analyze themselves for up to 25 different health conditions. He’s also CEO of Biosense, a company aimed at bringing more intricate disease-detecting technology to the poorer nations of Africa.

500px suffered a bit of a setback last week when tons of its users began using the photo-sharing app to submit pornographic images. Under Apple’ guidelines, there’s been some changes made that should prevent anything like that ever happening again.
At first the reaction seems reasonable, since some of the submitted images allegedly included child pornography. Still many others aren’t too happy about what they see as further proof the company is becoming censor-happy and in violation of 1st Amendment rights.

Along with their brand new iPod-Mini and re-vamped MacBook, Apple aficionados can count a clock as amongst Apple’s most covered recent products.
Specifically, a clock app that Apple installed on their newest iOS-powered iPads (seen here on the right) — the design of which was allegedly taken without permission from the Swiss Federal Railway Company (seen on the left).

If there’s two things I never would have assumed would go together, it’s ‘manga’ and ‘employment.’ (Yet I’m doing this write-up here, so it goes to show ya). Robert Walters didn’t let that hold him back: he’s regarded by companies of all kinds as a leader in the industry of employment recruitment consultancies.
Walters has wasted no time in proving he’s ahead of the game, helping design a new app called the Manga Interview App, which utilizes an anime-styled approach to helping aspiring job-seekers perfect the interview process. Continue reading “Daily Anime: New Manga iPhone App Could Land You a Job” »
Critics have questioned how long Apple could hold up WITHOUT the leader who crafted the company in his vision.
And now we know.
This week’s apology from Apple indicates more than a minor screw up or a chink in the armor for the near trillion dollar company, it’s representative of the huge paradigm shift that has taken place at Apple.

Clearly some people just can’t stand buying online…
A surveillance video of several Los Angeles burglars breaking into an Apple Store has been released, proving some people’s fetish for the stark white electronics has almost no bounds.
The surveilance video is from a Temecula, CA Apple Store, and depicts a BMW X5, which may or may not have come with a GPS, ramming into an Apple store.
The burglars, who reportedly OWN the car, subsequently fly out to Continue reading “Apple Fanboys Ram BMW Into Apple Store, Get Stuck (Video)” »
Apple’s big iPhone 5 event in San Francisco just wrapped up and here is a break down of the major announcements.
As we expected, Apple revealed the iPhone 5 today with a larger 4-inch display, LTE capabilities, and a new A6 processor. Most of the specs for the new device, which starts at $199 (iPhone 4S is now $99 on contract), were revealed prior to the event, but below is the full run down. Unfortunately we didn’t get an Epic Infinity Blade demo on stage this time around, and instead were treated with a trailer for the upcoming Real Racing 3 title. Head below for the specifics:
There’s a brand-new rumor circulating this week that Bruce Willis is planning to sue Apple over who owns the rights to his reportedly huge music collection, after he passes away. It’s a morbid situation to ponder, but does he have a point?
As Geekosystem points out, pretty astutely, iTunes’ terms and conditions are more than just a wee bit convoluted:
This license does not allow you to use the Licensed Application on any Apple Device that you do not own or control, and except as provided in the Usage Rules, you may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time.
A recent study done by Gazelle, an electronics trade-in site, showed that nearly 15% of iPhone users would rather give up sex altogether rather than give up their iPhone for even a weekend.
4% even admitted to using their iPhone during sex, which sounds pretty bad — until you consider some of the iPhone apps that are out there –“Male Size iPhone app‘, the ‘ijiggly’ and the chance for a ménage à Trois (abeit virtual) with the ‘Pocket Mistress’ iPhone app — you get the idea.

Yesterday we told you about Apple’s latest announcements of Retina display Macbook Pros, iOS 6, and new Macbook Airs, among other things. The new Retina Macbook Pros feature a 2800 x 1800 resolution display and below is a screenshot of the game running in full Retina resolution courtesy of AnandTech (via 9to5Mac).
In its analysis of the new notebook’s display, Anandtech was able to get Diablo III up and running at full 2880 x 1800 Retina resolution, but noted most apps (apart from a few that have been already updated for the displays) will not take full advantage of the display.

A report surfacing from an interview with J. Crew CEO and Apple Board Member Mickey Drexler states that Jobs believed Apple could own half the car market.
“Look at the car industry; it’s a tragedy in America. Who is designing the cars?…Steve’s dream before he died was to design an iCar.”
It’s become fairly well known that the automotive industry in the U.S. is dominated by cars manufactured overseas and since he beginning of the decade, the automotive Continue reading “So…Apparently Steve Jobs Dreamed Of Developing an iCar?” »

Skyrim Official World Interactive Map brings the 3200x zoomable world of Skyrim to your iPhone and iPad.

Another downside is the app is only currently available via the US App Store. Continue reading “Explore Skyrim With Official World Interactive Map for iPhone and iPad” »
