iOS 4.1 HDR photography comes from Imsense acquisition?

iOS 4.1 HDR photography comes from Imsense acquisition?

iOS 4.1 includes HDR photography for iPhone 4, but did Apple roll the technology themselves or did they buy it along with UK company Imsense Ltd? MacRumors has done some sleuthing and they think the latter:

According to a note on the website of Braveheart Ventures, which backed imsense, the company was acquired by "an undisclosed trade buyer in July 2010". According to a press release from Braveheart, it received £342,000 for its minority stake in imsense, more than doubling its original £150,000 investment in two years.

iOS 4.1 features: HD video uploads to YouTube

iOS 4.1 features: HD video uploads to YouTube

iPhone 4 and iPod touch (2010), with iOS 4.1, can now upload HD video directly to YouTube. Previously, under iOS 4.0, iPhone 4 videos would be compressed down to SD when uploaded to YouTube. 4.1 fixes that. Just tap the action button at the bottom right and share HD straight up to YouTube.

The process is as simple as checking the HD option on the YouTube upload screen. Note, however, due to file sizes a Wi-Fi connection is required on iPhone 4. (No 3G HD uploads).

If you've tried it out, let us know how it works for you. For more, check out our complete iOS 4.1 walkthrough.

iPad coming to Target on October 3rd?

iPad is coming to Target on October 3rd according to an Engadget tipster. Apple has been aggressively pushing their iOS devices out into big box retailers from Best Buy to Walmart to Radio Shack, so Target could just be next on the list.

It'll be in the digital audio section alongside everything from iPods to Kindles.

Anyone been waiting for Target to get the iPad before picking one up? Prefer it to the Apple Store and previous locations? Wondering whose next? (7-Eleven?!)

Regarding Gartner saying Android market share will surpass iPhone

Regarding Gartner saying Android market share will surpass iPhone

Gartner says global Android market share will surpass iPhone market share by 2011:

Gartner expects manufacturers such as Samsung to launch many new budget Android devices in 2H10 that will drive Android into mass market segments. Other players, such as Sony Ericsson, LG and Motorola, will follow a similar strategy. This trend should help Android become the top OS in North America by the end of 2010.

Android would remain second only to Nokia.

Totally unrelated link: iPhone is 3% of handset unit volume, 2x profit of RIM, Nokia, Sony combined. iPad next?

The most common words used uniquely in 1-star and 5-star App Store reviews, according to Instapaper and Tumblr developer Marco Arment who wrote a script to collect the data:

5-star: awesome, worth, thanks, amazing, simple, perfect, price, everything, ever, must, ipod, before, found, store, never, recommend, done, take, always, touch

1-star: waste, money, crashes, tried, useless, nothing, paid, open, deleted, downloaded, didn’t, says, stupid, anything, actually, account, bought, apple, already

His analysis is well worth the read.

iPod touch (2010) review

iPod touch (2010) review

iPod touch (2010), the fourth generation of Apple's app-enabled, phone-disabled iOS platform brings with it everything we've been waiting for in a mini tablet, but nowhere near enough of it. But that's often the ecstasy and the agony of Apple.

Since we've already posted both our iPhone 4 review, which has similar hardware, and iOS 4.1 walkthrough, which covers much of the same software, we're going to encourage you to check both those articles for more on what's the same and focus here on what's different.

So is it a worthwhile upgrade from last year's iPod touch? A realistic alternative to iPhone 4 for those who prefer other phones? A more pocketable option to iPad?

Check out the iPod touch in 10 minutes video for the quick answer up top and keep on reading for the full review.
