FaceTime between iPhone 4 and Mac [Video]

FaceTime between iPhone 4 and Mac [Video]

Right after Apple released FaceTime for Mac beta, Dieter grabbed his iPhone 4 and called me up on my MacBook. The video above shows the results. It worked well and looked good.

FaceTime for Mac is incredibly barebones right now, almost no UI chrome or options but we'll see what happens come release. The ability to stay in contact, visually, from any iOS or Mac OS device is compelling, but it would be even better if Apple released a Windows version. Let's hope that's coming soon.

FaceTime for Mac beta now available for download

As promised by Steve Jobs during Apple's Back to the Mac event, FaceTime for Mac beta is now up on Apple.com and available for download:

FaceTime for Mac makes it possible to talk, smile, wave, and laugh with anyone on an iPhone 4, iPod touch, or Mac from your Mac over Wi-Fi. So you can catch up, hang out, joke around, and stay in touch with just a click. Sure, it’s great to hear a voice. But it’s even better to see the face that goes with it.

MacBook Air brings iPad attributes back to the Mac

As part of the Back to the Mac event, Steve Jobs wondered what would happen if a a MacBook and iPad hooked up and the answer is the new MacBook Air. It's full unibody, full keyboard, full trackpad. Instant on. Great battery life. Great standby time. There will be both 13.3 inch and 11.6 inch models.

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion brings iOS, iPad innovations back to the Mac

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion brings iOS, iPad innovations back to the Mac

Steve Jobs today gave a hint at the future of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, and that future is... iOS and iPad!

  • Multitouch gestures
  • App Store
  • App home screens (with Folders)
  • Full screen apps
  • Auto save
  • Apps resume when launched

It's not going to be a multitouch Mac. Jobs says Apple tried it but vertical touch surfaces are tiring and don't work. That's why Apple has made multitouch trackpads for laptops, and Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad for desktops. That's how they're going to do multitouch.

Mac App Store won't be exclusive but Jobs thinks it will be the best. Same 70/30 developer split, one click downloads, free and paid, auto instal, auto updates, licensed for use on all your personal macs.

LaunchPad will be the homescreen for Macs.

Mission Control will unify Spaces, Exposé, Dashboard, full screen apps.

Screenshots after the break. And check out Apple.com's new Mac OS X 10.7 Lion page for more.

Apple announces FaceTime for Mac

Apple announces FaceTime for Mac

As part of the Back to the Mac event, Steve Jobs has just announced FaceTime for Mac. The interface is bare bones, a naked QuickTime X-like UI but it does full screen, and it works as simply as FaceTime for iOS. (Which Jobs also announced they've shipped on 19 million devices to date).

Beta release for Mac today. No word on FaceTime for Windows yet.

More as this develops.

Dev-Team releases PwnageTool 4.1 for Mac OS X [Jailbreak]

Here it is, PwnageTool 4.1 for Mac OS X, and it's good to go for Apple TV (2010), iPad 3.2.2, iPod touch (2010), iPod touch (2009), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G.

PwnageTool allows you to restore to a custom IPSW file. For instance, you can restore to a pre-jailbroken firmware while simultaneously maintaining your current baseband (and thus your ultrasn0w carrier unlock). You can also add whatever packages you want in the “Expert” mode of Pwnage

Apple TV is obviously a big addition here:
