iPhone case allows you to take photos with phone held horizontally

iPhone case allows you to take photos with phone held horizontally

The MirrorCase for the iPhone lets you take photos while holding the phone flat, like an old-times camera. It seems like a good way to shoot video of yourself, too - just set it on a table and do your thing. At $50, it's a bit pricey. I wonder if there's a D.I.Y. version? (I think this is the gizmo used to secretly tape Mitt Romney declaring that [...]

Apple’s iPhone launches no longer excite

Now, having had two years to plot and scheme, Apple's renowned designer Jonathan Ive has replaced the tiny 3.5in (8.9cm) screen with a slightly-less-tiny 4in (10.2cm) screen? Wow. Knock me over with a feather. What do you do with the rest of your time, Jony? To use a car analogy, six years ago the iPhone was like a sexy new flagship model from [...]

HOWTO: Cheat Against Your Friends On Draw Something

HOWTO: Cheat Against Your Friends On Draw Something

Draw Something is one of the hottest apps on the App Store right now, but it looks like there are still a few kinks to work out.

Or, you can force-quit the app and re-open it, and you'll get [...]

Most common iPhone unlock codes

This chart shows the 10 most common iPhone numeric lock-codes, as anonymously gathered by the Big Brother Security Camera app (now removed from the App Store). They represent 15% of all 204,508 passcodes sampled. I wonder how strongly they correlate with other numeric PINs, such as ATM/Chip-and-PIN codes. Interestingly, 1990-2000 are all in [...]

Fake but cool video hacking in Times Square

Looks like a guy has created a video repeater that "somehow" manages to overwhelm the inputs of any screen in the vicinity. The demo shows the inventor taking over a couple of small screens at ground level, before attaching the device to a huge red balloon and floating it up high to hax bigger screens up above. The iPhone doesn't transmit [...]

Microsoft celebrates Windows Phone 7 RTM with funeral parade for BlackBerry and iPhone

The iPhone's dead, long live the Windows Phone. That must be the genius proclamation that incited Microsoft to celebrate Windows Phone 7 reaching RTM status with the incomprehensible procession you see above. An elaborate parade, replete with hearses and black capes, was organized last week to denote the passing of the BlackBerry and iPhone into [...]
