Apple Q3 2011 conference call set for Tuesday

Apple has announced their Q3 2011 conference call will take place Tuesday, July 19, 2011, 2:00 p.m. PDT/5:00 p.m. EDT. We'll get updated iPhone and iPad sales numbers, almost certainly, and it will be interesting to see if Apple gets asked any questions about the Lodsys lawsuits... the kind Google's Larry Page completely non-answered yesterday during the Google's results call.

As always, we'll cover highlights for you right here on TiPb. Anyone care to make any predictions?

iPhone 4 video camera captures guitar string oscillations from inside the guitar [video]

iPhone 4 video camera captures guitar string oscillations from inside the guitar [video]

A guitarist decided to video himself playing an acoustic guitar and, to be different, he stuck an iPhone 4 inside to capture the action from behind the strings. The results are really dramatic. The video has not been edited to emphasize the guitars oscillating strings; it is a natural occurrence with the iPhone 4 video camera. It is caused by the way the iPhone 4s rolling shutter works. Most consumer grade digital cameras do not take instant pictures; instead they scan the CMOS sensor diagonally from the top left to the bottom right. Fast moving objects create problems for this technique and produce these weird and wonderful distortion effects.

Take a look at the video after the break; it is definitely worth a few moments of your time!

The truth about jailbreaking and the jailbreak community

The truth about jailbreaking and the jailbreak community

Lately we've been seeing a lot of rumors about iOS 5 and whether over-the-air updates will affect the ability to jailbreak. Regardless, I think there are some misconceptions about the Jailbreak community being spread around the blogsphere lately, even as link-bait or and well-intentioned rebuttals that take the bait and provide the links.

This isn't that. I'm not going to reward negative attention seeking. I'm just going to reiterate why I think jailbreak greatly benefits all iOS users, Jailbreak and otherwise, and trust people are smart enough and critical enough to read all the opinions and decide for themselves.

iUsers brings multiple user accounts to the iPad [jailbreak]

iUsers brings multiple user accounts to the iPad [jailbreak]

iUsers is a new jailbreak tweak that enables an iPad to have multiple user accounts. If you share your iPad with other people in your home, this jailbreak tweak could be just what you have been waiting for.

Each user that has access to your iPad can now have a separate account with their own log in passcode, separate home screens, different apps and log in credentials. Pedro Franceschi is the man to thank for this awesome looking tweak. He has even put together a short video showing how it all works; it looks really well put together and a highly useful add on. The iPad does have to go through a short reboot cycle when switching accounts. It doesn't seem to take very long to do it, so it's not really a deal breaker.

If you want to give this one a go, you will need to add http://cydia.iblogeek.com/ as an additional repository in your Cydia settings. Once you have done that, simply search for iUsers.

Take a look at iUsers in action after the break!

iPad 3 parts leak in Taiwan

Apple.pro, which has a good track record with such things, has posted a couple pictures of what they say are iPad 3 parts.

We pretty much know an iPad 3 is coming at some point, and we know it will have parts, but for pre-release techno-fetishists and gadget geeks like us, this as close to p0rn as we can post. Enjoy.

Spotify for iPhone hits the US App Store

Spotify for iPhone has finally hit the US App Store.

Stream millions of tracks from thousands of albums and artists to your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Take your existing Spotify playlists with you on the go - listen to them during your commute, in the gym or on a flight. With ‘Offline mode’ you can listen even when no connection is available. Wirelessly sync your local files to your phone to merge your catalogue with ours, no cables required! Download and get started directly from your mobile.

  • Wirelessly sync your local files to your phone
  • Create and sync playlists

Personally, I'll be sticking with iTunes and iCloud for my music streaming needs, but I'm old school and actually enjoy listening to my local radio. However, Spotify is a great alternative to iTunes and offers features that Apple does not. Will you be jumping ship?

Spotify is available for Free for iPhone and requires a free Spotify account. There are also premium and unlimited accounts available starting at $4.99 per month.

Google releases Photovine for iPhone, a photo sharing app with a strange twist

Google releases Photovine for iPhone, a photo sharing app with a strange twist

Google has released another photo sharing app for the iPhone, this one called Photovine and actually made by Slide. Slide was acquired by Google some time last year.

Watching the video it appears that it is aimed at some sort of photo word association type game. One person starts the photo conversation with a picture then friends add other photos with a similar theme. It is all a little bit strange if you ask me!

What's also hard to figure out is where it fits in with Google's other photo sharing services, like Picasa, Google+, and Pool Party. When do you use one rather than the other? Is it variety or lack of foucs
