Apple removing developer access to UDIDs in iOS 5?

Apple removing developer access to UDIDs in iOS 5?

Time was a developer could call the UDID (unique device identifier) for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and do with it what they would, from beneficial things like keeping your data allocated to you, to evil things like tracking you and your behavior for advertising and giggles. Now with iOS 5 beta 6 Apple aims to make it no longer so.

Deprecated in iOS 5.0

uniqueIdentifier

An alphanumeric string unique to each device based on various hardware details. (read-only) (Deprecated in iOS 5.0. Instead, create a unique identifier specific to your app.)

iOS 5 likely coming first week of October

iOS 5 likely coming first week of October

To answer a ton of questions we're getting, if I had to guess I'd say iOS 5 will likely be launched in the first week of October. Apple traditionally releases a new version of iOS to the public alongside the release of new iPhone hardware, if not a couple of days before to help balance server loads. If iPhone 5 ends up being scheduled for October 7, then iOS 5 could be scheduled for any time that week up to and including the same Friday.

webOS ran twice as fast on iPad 2 as TouchPad? [Updated]

webOS ran twice as fast on iPad 2 as TouchPad? [Updated]

Matt Brian from The Next Web has a source that claims, before canceling all webOS devices, people inside HP tested webOS as a web app on iPad 2 using Safari and the results were twice as fast as their own TouchPad hardware.

The hardware reportedly stopped the team from innovating beyond certain points because it was slow and imposed constraints, which was highlighted when webOS was loaded on to Apple’s iPad device and found to run the platform significantly faster than the device for which it was originally developed.

More on iPad 3 coming this spring, difficulty in producing Retina Displays

The Wall Street Journal tells us that -- surprise, surprise -- Apple is working on a Retina Display iPad 3 for this fall!

The Cupertino, Calif., company has ordered key components such as display panels and chips for a new iPad it is aiming to launch in early 2012, said the people.

The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display - 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 - and Apple's suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.

    Special edition Mobile Nations podcast tonight at 9PM Eastern

    We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming to bring you this special announcement: Mobile Nations podcast is broadcasting live tonight at 9PM. There's a lot for us to talk about between HP dumping webOS hardware to Google gobbling up Motorola, and we can't sit on our hands anymore. So we're broadcasting live tonight at 9PM Eastern (6PM Pacific, 1AM UTC).

    Mobile Nations brings together the heads of the SPE communities, with at the very least Rene Ritchie of TiPb, Kevin of CrackBerry, Phil of Android Central, Dan of WPcentral, and - of course - Derek of PreCentral (plus maybe a few others). There's going to be a lot to talk about, and things will be kicking off at 9PM Eastern, so be there. It's going to be amazing. There might be tears.

    Join us here, or at MobileNations.com.

    Did iPad kill HP's hardware business?

    Did iPad kill HP's hardware business?

    After Apple introduced the iPad I wondered out loud on iPad Live whether it would leave any air in the room for eventual tablet rivals. It turns out I might have been right, but also might not have been right enough. The iPad, and now iPad 2, might not have left any air in the room for any hardware rivals, tablet or PC.

    HP is not only killing off their webOS hardware and looking to license the software, HP is spinning or selling off their laptop and desktop computer business as well. Why?
