Future iPads, iPhones to be built by Robots

Xinhuanet reports that future iPads and iPhones might just be built by robots, that is if manufacturing giant Foxconn goes ahead with plans to replace workers with up to 1 million mechs:

[Foxconn] currently has 10,000 robots and the number will be increased to 300,000 next year and 1 million in three years, according to [Foxconn founder and chairman, Terry Gou].

Gou announced the robotics initiative during a company dance party, which presumably they'll have less of in the future. Unless, of course, they're replacing workers with dancing robots.

EA: Fastest growing gaming console is iPad

Speaking with IndustryGamers, Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello puts the previous Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony-led console market into post-iPad perspective:

Consoles used to be 80% of the industry as recently as 2000. Consoles today are 40% of the game industry, so what do we really have?

We have a new hardware platform and we’re putting out software every 90 days. Our fastest growing platform is the iPad right now and that didn’t exist 18 months ago.

App for That: How to send videos to the cloud

App for That: How to send videos to the cloud

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, George asks:

Next Month, I'm going to a YouTube gathering in London called Summer In The City. As its a YouTube gathering there is going to be alot of video taking. However, I'm only going to take my 16GB iPhone (and clothes and stuff), so was wondering if there was an app that would let me store the videos when I ran out of room, as I can't put it on a computer or anything.

To see what we found for George, follow along after the break!

Track your expenses with Touch Expense

Track your expenses with Touch Expense

Touch Expense, by MobiApps, is an iPhone application designed for tracking your expenses.

Touch Expense is an innovative and easy way to put your daily expenses. Insert and tracking your daily expenses has never been faster and enjoyable.

  • Navigate between days easily through the dynamic calendar control;
  • Enter your expenses with an innovative slider;
  • Optimized for iOS 4 and Retina Display;
  • Categorize your expenses with icons ready for use;
  • See your monthly expenses based on categories through a pie chart;
  • Multi language.

I'm not sure how I feel about the UI for entering in expenses. You must slide your fingers up (and down) the big circular sliders to enter the amounts - the left one is for dollars and the right one is for cents. Having a keypad pop up would be faster, in my opinion. The look of the UI, however, is really neat and makes me want to get used to the entry method. In fact, the look reminds me of my favorite weight tracking app, Weightbot.

Touch Expense is available on the iPhone for $1.99. Screenshots after the break.

90 second iTunes previews starting to roll out internationally

90 second iTunes previews starting to roll out internationally

IThe new, longer 90 second iTunes music previews seem to be finally rolling out internationally. They aren't available on all songs yet, and it seems hit in miss in my testing in the Canadian iTunes Store, so whether you'll get them or not, but at least some songs are going the full 90 seconds.

After a November 2010 notification to record labels Apple originally switched to 90 second previews in the US back in December of last year. Why it took that email so long to reach beyond American borders is unknown, as is how long it will take to fully roll out now that it has begun.

In an effort to crowd source this, let us know if you're seeing the 90 second previews, what country you're in, and whether or not the 90 second previews are everywhere or just on a few songs.

Add NFC payment capability to your iPhone 4

Add NFC payment capability to your iPhone 4

Do you want to add NFC to your iPhone 4? If you do, there is now actually a way to do it; but it is not for the feint hearted. NFC is an acronym for Near Field Communication. NFC enables you to pay for items by waving an enabled card or phone in front of an NFC enabled credit card terminal. There is no need to input a pin number or sign anything; it is all done with a wave of your phone. NFC has been widely rumored to feature in the iPhone 5 too.

iPhone 5 case leak-a-palooza

iPhone 5 case leak-a-palooza

According to M.I.C. Gadget, those iPhone 5 cases we caught a peak of earlier in the week are pretty much "everywhere" in China.

What we are hearing now is that the Chinese case makers are distributing their iPhone 5 cases.

Again, we won't know for certain what iPhone 5 looks like until Steve Jobs or another Apple exec holds it up on stage this fall, but these manufacturers certainly seem confident enough in their knowledge of Apple's iPhone 5 plans to risk their money on producing mass quantities of these Skittle-colored cases.

Never miss an appointment with Calendar with Alarm for iPhone

Never miss an appointment with Calendar with Alarm for iPhone

Calendar with Alarm is an iPhone calendar app that, well, lets you set alarms.

Never miss an appointment again! CalAlarm is an elegantly designed user friendly calendar that adds an alarm to your appointments, so that you are no longer committed to the two short standard calendar beeps.

  • Easy and quick navigation through days and weeks and years.
  • Quickly add/edit multiple alerts.
  • Copy events.
  • Set defaults for new events.
  • Custom week numbers.
  • Distinguishes calendars with the same name but of different type.
  • Lists upcoming and overdue alarms.
  • Repeats continuously till acknowledged.
  • Snoozes with variable intervals.
  • Customize Quick Alert values, Snooze screen and birthdays alarms.
  • Choice of 25 alarm sounds.
  • Customizes sounds for different calendars.
  • All CalAlarm alarms on/off switch.
  • Sets local notifications.
  • Works with all calendars that use the iPhone calendar database (iCal, MobileMe, Exchange, CalDAV, Google calendar, etc.).
  • Syncs with these calendars.

It drives me crazy that the iPhone's native calendar only allows two alerts for an event. For entries that require more alerts, I normally add them to MobileMe in iCal on my Mac. Calendar with Alarm seems like a much better solution.

Calendar with Alarm is available on the iPhone for $1.99. Screenshots after the break.

AT&T to throttle top 5% of "unlimited" data users

If you still have an "unlimited" data plan with AT&T and you're among the top 5% of data users, prepare to be throttled.

Starting October 1, smartphone customers with unlimited data plans may experience reduced speeds once their usage in a billing cycle reaches the level that puts them among the top 5 percent of heaviest data users. These customers can still use unlimited data and their speeds will be restored with the start of the next billing cycle. Before you are affected, we will provide multiple notices, including a grace period.
