Game Center Terms of Service updated

Game Center Terms of Service updated

Apple has recently changed the terms of service for their Game Center application and the main difference is that Game Center will now use your Apple ID instead of your gamer tag when making a friend request.

You will still be able to use a handle/username for Game Center, it just appears as if Apple wants us all to be more personable and authentic with each-other when becoming friends. What are your thoughts about users seeing your full name when requesting friends on Game Center? Does it increase accountability, reduce privacy, or both?

Imagining iPad 2

Imagining iPad 2

iPad 2 rumors have been making their way through the internet pretty much since the day after the current iPad debuted but lately they've picked up considerable speed. Leaks have come from supposed manufacturers and suppliers, of course, but given the time of year and Apple's refresh cycles for iOS devices to date, we could be seeing an iPad 2 announcement as early as January/February and a release in April. Either way it's coming. We all know it's coming. (We've even discussed whether or not you should get an iPad now or wait for iPad 2 next year). But what will it be like?

Based on rumors to date, I'm going make some guesses... after the break.

Steve Jobs: Apple to add AirPlay video to Safari, App Store apps in 2011

Steve Jobs: Apple to add AirPlay video to Safari, App Store apps in 2011

According to another purported email response from Steve Jobs, the AirPlay feature introduced in iOS 4.2 for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad should be updated in 2011:

The question:

Hi, I recently updated both my iPhone 4 and iPad to 4.2. I think my favourite feature is airplay. This is seriously amazing and makes sharing content seamless. I just purchased Apple TV and was wondering are you ever going to make airplay video work for videos in safari and 3rd party apps? I hope to get a response. :)

The Steve Jobs reply:

Yep, hope to add these features to Airplay in 2011.

Sent from my iPhone

While most of us wanted AirPlay to support anything that used the standard iOS video controller, the current implementation is severely limited, providing audio-only streaming options for the most part, with video available only from the built-in iPod app (and Video app on iPod touch and iPad), and YouTube app.

This limitation has been removed for developers via one line of code and for Jailbreakers via AirVideoEnabler, so it would be outstanding to see Apple fix it out of the box for everyone.

Unfortunately, 2011 is a ways away still, and kind of puts the kibosh on rumors of an iOS 4.3 update in December (unless that's really only to support subscription newspapers for iPad).

VIdeo of AirPlay in action after the break... If you've tried out -- or have been waiting to try out -- AirPlay streaming to Apple TV, let us know your thoughts!

Infinity Blade to hit App Store on Dec 9th

Epic Games has announced that the long awaited iOS game Infinity Blade will be in the App Store on December 9th. The game will be available for the iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, as well as third- and fourth-generation iPod Touch devices at a cost of $5.99.

Infinity Blade will be the first full game to utilize Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. Epic Citadel, already available in the App Store, is a short demonstration level showing  the power of the Unreal Engine on iOS devices. If you haven't seen it, it is free and definitely worth a look. [iTunes Link]

Infinity Blade is an RPG (Role Playing Game). You are a Knight in a giant 3D Castle environment, in search of a God-King, battling various enemies to gain new weapons and powers in your quest.

So mark your calendar, this is one great looking game, my iPad is twitching with anticipation, who’s getting this one when it hits?

Glif - iPhone 4 tripod mount and stand

Glif - iPhone 4 tripod mount and stand

A couple of New Yorkers have introduced a very slim and elegant solution for iPhone 4 photographers with their invention of the Glif tripod mount and stand. Glif is an iPhone 4 accessory that works as both a standard tripod mount and kickstand. The minds behind Glif put together a promo video that showcases using the Glif to participate in activities such as hands-free FaceTiming, watching videos, making movies, and using your iPhone as an alarm clock.

The idea for the Glif was first formed when we realized the iPhone 4 is literally the best camera we've ever owned. With the addition of HD video recording and High Dynamic Range photography, it's clear Apple is positioning the iPhone as a very high quality portable camera. But because of its small form factor (and Apple's minimalist design approach) it will never contain a threaded nut for attaching a tripod - standard on almost all photo and video cameras. Solutions for mounting an iPhone to a tripod exist (DIY or otherwise) but they are typically bulky and cumbersome. Our goal was to create something small, simple, and elegant.

And something small, simple, and elegant they did!

Not only did Tom and Dave invent a fantastic accessory, but they have a story that is just as amazing. After designing the Glif, they put it up on Kickstarter in an effort to raise the $10,000 needed to put the Glif into production. The design was so popular, they received almost $140,000 in pledges! Incredible. The Glif is now in full scale production and available to order for $20.

This accessory truly is amazing with such a great story and I can't wait to get my hands on one.

Check out the video after the break!

"Project" Magazine for iPad launching tomorrow [video]

"Project" Magazine for iPad launching tomorrow [video]

Richard Branson's new digital magazine for the iPad, dubbed Project launches tomorrow:

Project is the very first international magazine created specifically for the iPad. It’s a magazine about design, entertainment, technology and entrepreneurs, and is edited by Anthony Noguera, former editor-in-chief of FHM.

The magazine will be purely digital, offering up content in a "living magazine" format that will be updated throughout the month, and plays to the iPad's strengths in delivering an intuitive and asthetically pleasing UI for a completely immersive user-experience unlike any other magazine available. The idea is for users to treat Project as a daily reading experience, instead of a 'read once then throw away' model carried by current magazine offerings.

The video below only shows the magazine's front cover, and we're not yet sure if this animated experience will extend to the actual pages and articles themselves. The app should be available in the App Store tomorrow.

With News Corp. prepping to launch a rumored iPad-only newspaper in the coming months, it will be interesting to see how quickly these new services gain initial adoption.

Any readers looking forward to this new magazine experience? Sound off in the comments below!
