Mayor of NYC thinks iPad is amazing

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is using his iPad "night and day" for both work and pleasure. According to Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson, "he takes the iPad with him everywhere. He uses it all the time." He even had it accompany him during his visit with Queen Elizabeth last week.

The mayer uses his iPad to read speeches, keep notes, obtain briefing materials, check the weather, get directions with Google maps, and read books and magazines. Bloomberg has a goal to go paperless and the iPad his helping him do just that. However, his staff does keep a briefing book for him as a backup.

Apple holding iPhone 4 press conference on Friday

Apple is going to be holding an iPhone 4-related conference on Friday, July 16 at 10pm PT, 1pm ET.

Although not specifically stated, it's not hard to imagine Apple will use the opportunity to address iPhone 4 antenna issues.

(Maybe iOS 4.1 being released in beta a couple weeks earlier than iPhone 3.1 was a precursor?)

iOS 4.1 - Fewer bars in more places?

Is the just released iOS 4.1 beta reporting fewer bars in more places, just like Apple said their next iOS update would? That's what we're hearing... but not (just?) on iPhone 4 -- iPhone 3GS as well.

Where is iOS 4.0.1, iOS 4.x for iPad?

Where is iOS 4.0.1, iOS 4.x for iPad?

There's some confusion in the wake of Apple releasing iOS 4.1 for iPhone and iPod touch to developers today -- namely where is the iOS 4.0.1 bug fix release and where is iOS 4.x for iPad?

iOS 4.1 will be a proper new release, just like iOS 3.1 (iPhone 3.1) was last year, which means developers need to test against it, which means Apple needs to release an early beta for those developers. Last year, iOS 3.1 beta 1 was released on June 30, 2009. So today is a couple weeks earlier than last year's point release beta -- read into that what you will -- but not crazily off schedule.

Letterman, Top Gear, Microsoft poke fun at iPhone 4 antenna issue

So on one hand the hype surrounding iPhone 4 antenna issues has risen to the level of a David Letterman top 10 list and Top Gear joke (see videos after the break), and on the other it's got Microsoft COO Kevin Turner calling it Apple's Vista (which is a bizarre slam on Microsoft's own product):

It's beyond the looking glass. What is Apple going to do? What should they do?

iPhone at Work: shooting scene reconstruction

iPhone at Work: shooting scene reconstruction

How does a "shooting scene reconstructor" use his iPhone to get the job done and what iPhone apps help get him through his day? TiPb’s iPhone at work contest aims to bring you just such slices of the iPhone life. Here’s Theta's answer and as a small token of thanks we’re sending him a $20 iTunes gift certificate. If you want to see your name up on the TiPb home page and get a gift certificate all your own, head on over to the TiPb iPhone Forum and share your story now!

I just got my first iPhone, an iPhone 4. Before that I used two different generations of iPod touches.

I do quite a few "shooting scene reconstructions", and other investigations related to firearms examination. To that end, I have converted over from using a Tablet PC for field note taking, to using Office² and various self made worksheets. I can quickly enter various types of data related to the evidence I am examining. Today I even took a picture of a fired casing comparison using the iPhone 4 camera through the microscope objective, cropped the image (CropForFree), annotated it (iRetouch Lite), and then inserted into my worksheet in Office².

Apple acquires map API company Poly9

Apple acquires map API company Poly9

According to the Sun, Apple has purchased Quebec-based Poly9, a mapping API provider for Apple, Microsoft, Yahoo!, MSNBC, and NORAD.

Poly9's website has been shuttered, their employees moved to Cupertino.

Last year, Apple bought PlaceBase, a company that specialized in API for layering data sets over maps.

Since there's only a few companies that actually own the maps themselves, Apple still isn't going into the map business -- but they certainly look to be doing a lot to make their implementation of maps better and more powerful.
