Several companies such as Wells Fargo, Mercedes Benz, and SAP are testing how the iPad can increase productivity within their enterprises. So, not only has Apple sold over 3 million iPads, they're starting to gain traction into big corporations as well. Does this mean the iPad isn't just for reading books and watching videos on YouTube? (If you're reading TiPb, we're guessing you already know the answer).
How does a photographer 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 JustinHammondPhoto'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'm a professional photographer from Massachusetts. I have the wonderful job of photographing some of the most beautiful women in the world in the coolest locations all over the country. Models, celebrities, NFL Cheerleaders, it goes on and on. My work has been in magazines, advertisements, Maxim, websites... the works! I love my job!
I honestly realized for the first time when reading this contest how much I actually use my iPhone on a day to day basis for what I do. It's a lot! Especially now that I have my iPhone 4, it's been even more. Here's when:
As you all know, we've been watching the App Store for iOS4 compatible updates. We've found a few we think are worthy of a postup, and as normal, if you guys find anything especially awesome, feel free to leave it in a comment or send it to me in an e-mail (ally (dot) kazmucha (at) tipb (dot) com) and if we think it's awesome too, we'll include it in our next roundup!
Hit the jump to see what we found lurking in the App Store this time!
Application can be a little daunting, but if you take a gander at the video above we'll walk you through the steps. I find the trick is to not be shy about using the supplied spray so you can more easily adjust the screen protector and squeeze out those bubbles. It's also worth noting that for at least a day after you apply it and sometimes a few days, your iPhone 4 is going to look a little weird - but having used these products for many years I know that the bubbles and 'fog' goes away completely.
After the break, a few more thoughts, a small gallery of photos, and a video showing how to apply the protective skin.
We're going to be talking quite a bit about the ongoing iPhone 4reception problems tonight on iPhone live! and as prep, we wanted to see just how many of our readers have the problem, have it sometimes, or haven't had it at all.
Ngmoco has just brought out the ultimate game/tech-demo (to show your friends) for the iPhone 4 -- Eliminate GunRange. It's a virtual gun range game where you use real weapons to shoot targets. The concept is not entirely engrossing as there are plenty of other top-notch shooting games out there (ngmoco's own Eliminate comes to mind). What makes this game fun and special is that it is the first game to take full use of the new iPhone 4 gyroscope. How does it work? Continue reading to find out!
Apple is launching a new version of the online MobileMe calendar web app, and much like they did with the new version of online mail, the design influence of the iPad app is unmistakable. Want in on the beta? Here's what you have to do:
To sign up, go to me.com/calendar and click "Request an invitation." You will receive an email notification when you have been added to the beta (we will add members in the order of their request over the coming weeks).
New features include:
The aforementioned new, iPad-like UI.
Shared calendars (for family and friends).
Published calendars (for groups and teams).
Event invitations with RSVPs (yes!).
Based on CalDAV standard.
It's good to go on iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Mac, with Outlook support for the PC coming soon.
So, how does it sound? Enough of an upgrade? Anything major still missing? Anyone get in on the beta yet?
