Grand Central Apple Store design looks beautiful, it could even be open for the holidays

The Wall Street Journal has posted renderings of the proposed Apple Store for Grand Central Station. The pictures certainly appear to do this beautiful building justice and compliment its style and iconic image.

The MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) released some information on the proposed Apple Store which could open near the terminal's east staircase, if approval is granted at tomorrow's meeting. Apple will start building works immediately, with a four month program of works; making an opening time of around late November or early December.

Evernote Peek updated

Evernote Peek updated

Evernote has updated their iPad app, Evernote Peek, with support for audio clues.

Evernote Peek is the first app designed for the iPad 2 Smart Cover! Studying with an iPad has never been more natural. Simply peek under the cover to prepare for a quiz, practice a language or strengthen your memory.

Here's how it works:

  • Choose a notebook to study
  • Close the Smart Cover
  • Peek under the cover to see a clue, lift the cover more to see the answer
  • Repeat

The update includes:

  • New: Support for audio clues
  • New: Study notebooks that others have shared with you in Evernote
  • 3 new audio featured notebooks: bird calls, Spanish language, French language

I wish this app was available when I was a student! Some topics are studied best with flashcards, and if could have used my iPad and Smart Cover as flash cards, studying would've been more exciting - and I just may not have dropped out of Biology.

Evernote Peek is available on the iPad for free. Screenshots after the break.

iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution theme [Jailbreak]

iNitsua is back and this time it's with iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution, the sequel to K. Nitsua and Zausser's original Twilight HD, this time with the fit, finish and UI crafting of Barsoverbeats, and over 20 gorgeous Retina Display wallpapers by K. Nitsua.

For those keeping track, it's the 7th iNitsua theme since 2009, and the features just keep getting better:

  • Highly animated HTML5 lockscreen
  • Lockscreen seemlessly integrates camera roll photo, or CPBitmapConv tweak, or custom SSH image with no need for HTML editing
  • Unprecedented 7 iconsets immediately available to choose from
  • Highly detailed "Prestige" iconset, each icon took 30 min - 1 hr to make
  • 7 icon color mods available at launch

Theming -- the ability to customize the look and feel of your iPhone, your way -- remains something unique to Jailbreak and with themes like iNitsua Z Twilight 3volution, it remains one of the most compelling reasons to Jailbreak.

iNitsua Twilight 3volution by K. Nitsua and @barsoverbeatsAvailable now for iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4, with an iPad version to come. More screenshots after the break.

Have Apple's closed apps killed Google's open web?

Have Apple's closed apps killed Google's open web?

Roger McNamee of Elevation Partners -- who previously made headlines before they sold Palm to HP -- is back with some interesting views on how Apple's App Store might have already killed Google's open web.

McNamee asserts that search, which makes Google billions in advertising revenue on the desktop, has been reduced to 1% of mobile activity, effectively obliterating it as a business. He blames/credits that to Apple and their App Store model, where they present the internet not in open, standards based web pages but closed, proprietary native applications.

The open web was too wild for the mainstream, MacNamee says, which makes Apple's iPhone and iPad far more accessible, approachable, and comfortable. (He also thinks iPad is the most important device since the IBM PC and urges everyone to get one.)

McNamee doesn't seem to be casting Apple as the villain of the open web, or the hero of the app mainstream, but rather both, or rather still commenting on the re-closing of the web.

That's something we've been speaking about a lot on our podcasts lately. Compuserve, Prodigy, AOL, etc. all started as mainstream-friendly, walled-gardens built on top of the internet. Eventually, they had to give users real email and real web access, and the walled gardens fell.

Now, however, the App Store has repackaged it again. And Facebook has erected a new, more social, but just as walled a garden. And Google is having to walk the line with Android and Plus and other services to provide a good experience while still staying as open as their original philosophy allowed.

MacNamee thinks it's done in Mobile. Google's model lost. I'm not so sure. "It is what it is" is far too easy and final for the turbulence we're still undergoing. Apple is all in on open HTML5 as a second development platform, for example, so just like Google they're embracing what they feel is the best of both models. That might be the new normal. We might finally be recognizing one model doesn't work for everyone, and a combination of the two is more than the sum of it's parts -- or its soundbites.
