Bury council set to buy 22 iPads for its garbage collectors

 

Bury council in the UK, is looking to provide its refuse (garbage) collection team with iPads to improve its service. Unfortunately the council is facing huge criticism for the plan due to the need to make £18 million pounds worth of spending cuts. The iPads will set them back around £9,000.

The iPads will be mounted on the refuse collecting trucks dashboard to provide route guidance for the driver. More importantly they will be used to gather data on households who do not recycle or fail to put out their bins altogether.

Yet more supposed iPhone 5 camera parts leak

Yet more supposed iPhone 5 camera parts leak

If tech site Greek-iPhone is to be believed, they've got their hands on even more iPhone 5 components, namely an updated camera module. As always we will take it with a grain of salt but the images appear to line up with what many sites and other blogs have already heard regarding the camera getting an upgrade.

This one includes more megapixels (which is probably a given) and a different form factor from the current camera found in the iPhone 4. It's slimmer and has a more rounded shape. We've been hearing that the next generation iPhone would carry a slimmer form factor and this lines up with that theory.

Developer Spotlight: Mike Smithwick of Distant Suns

Developer Spotlight: Mike Smithwick of Distant Suns

TiPb's developer spotlights are like DVD/iTunes Extras for the App Store -- a weekly look behind the scenes at the programers and designers that bring you the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps and games you love. This week Rene talks with Mike Smithwick of Distant Suns.

What's your name? Mike Smithwick

What's your company's name? First Light Design, LLC, I was hoping to name it something like “Apple,” I know, dumb name, but someone already had it.

Where are you located? San Jose, CA. Within walking distance of Cisco (really!), Intel, eBay, and only a few miles always from the Mother Ship.

What's your website address? www.distantsuns.com

What's your Twitter name? @distantsuns for any hot breaking news about, uh, Distant Suns (duh!). And @lazyastronomer for general space and astronomy geek stuff.

Why @lazyastronomer? When people ask me why I wanted to write Distant Suns, I just told them I was way too lazy to haul a telescope up a mountain and freeze off the stuff I wouldn’t really want to have frozen off just to see something I could create on my iPad while I am watching Lassie reruns on Nickelodeon and eating Cheeze Whiz out of the can. I’m sure your readership can relate to that.

What apps do you make? Distant Suns-Lite, the freebie, Distant Suns 2, the iPhone only version, and Distant Suns 3, the super-double-maga-licious universal version. Then there is WeatherPlanet, Grand Tour-3D and the Live365 music client and a Cisco client for their Pulse software that helps people large companies connect based on specific experience tech expertise needed at the time.

Podcasts streaming as music samples in iTunes app? [Bugs]

Podcasts streaming as music samples in iTunes app? [Bugs]

Whatever changes Apple has been making to the iTunes Store back end lately has caused iTunes app on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad to stream some podcasts as music samples, rather than handing them off to the built-in media player like they're supposed to.

We've tested and everything seems fine and working properly for all of our TiPb podcasts like iPhone Live or iPad Live, or ZENandTECH, Superfunctional, or Iterate, or any of the Mobile Nations podcasts for that matter.

However, shows on other networks like 5by5 and TWiT do seem to be experiencing the problem, and it's annoying to say the least. So what can be done?

Colorific for iPad now available [Kids Corner]

Colorific is a new coloring book for the iPad. Kids can either draw and color their own drawings or choose from five categories: Numbers, Animals & birds, Transport, Professions, Dinos.

Who says you need to be a kid to enjoying coloring? Even as an adult, I enjoy Colorific and find it very relaxing. The templates are well designed and don't have frustratingly small areas to color. I have a stylus which really helps make it feel like I'm coloring a traditional coloring book.
