US Samsung Galaxy S II Android invasion begins [Competition]

US Samsung Galaxy S II Android invasion begins [Competition]

Phil from Android Central went and got his geeky little hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S II phones set to hit US carriers soon -- and come this fall go up against iPhone 5. And... they're big. Up to 4.52-inches of big. So big I'm wondering why Samsung didn't just simplify their branding and call them Galaxy Tab 4.5. (Maybe because Spring Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch just rolls off the tongue so much more easily?)

BlackBerry opposing Apple's WebKit trademark filing

BlackBerry opposing Apple's WebKit trademark filing

BlackBerry maker RIM is opposing Apple's trademark filing for WebKit, the open source browser rendering engine they developer based on Linux Konquerer/KHTML. WebKit has become the most popular browser engine in Mobile, powering iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad Safari, as well as BlackBerry's Torch Mobile, Google's Android, Palm's webOS, and other browsers -- as well as Apple Safari and Google Chrome on PCs. So popular, in fact, that RIM couldn't wait to advertise they'd finally joined the modern internet by getting a WebKit browser.

Could that be part of the reason for the opposition, fears that Apple would try to restrict use of the trademark? Even CrackBerry.com doesn't seem to know for sure.

4G LTE Verizon iPhone probably not leaked via App Store screenshot

4G LTE Verizon iPhone probably not leaked via App Store screenshot

We love our TiPb Nation tipsters and commenters because nothing gets past you guys -- including screenshots in the App Store of the new Dolphin Browser for iPhone that have the words Verizon and 4G in the top bar.

Did the developer somehow have access to pre-release Verizon LTE hardware from Apple, and some bumbling Will Farrell type intern forgot to remove the SIM card for one screenshot? Did a similarly bumbling Tina Fey style apprentice App Store reviewer fail to notice it during the infamous approval process and let it into the store?

Dolphin Browser for iPhone now available

Dolphin Browser, very popular on Android, is now available for iPhone. Because of Apple's security policies, it has to use the same core WebKit HTML and Nitro JavaScript engines as MobileSafari, and can't add third party plugins either, but what it can and does do is add a lot of interesting interface elements, especially in gesture support, as well as sidebars and tabs.

Add calculator functionality to iOS search with QuickMath [jailbreak]

Add calculator functionality to iOS search with QuickMath [jailbreak]

QuickMath is a new tweak that allows you to do simple math functions within iOS search. If you're a Mac user you're probably already use to this kind of functionality within Spotlight. I've definitely caught myself a time or two swiping to search on my iPhone to do a simple math problem and quickly realizing that I can't.

Once you install QuickMath there is nothing to configure. Just swipe on over to search and type in your math problem. Hit search and the solution will show up in the search bar. It's a bit quicker than searching or paging through for the Calculator app in my experience. Maybe this math tweak will be enough to make Leanna jump over to #TeamJailbreak?

QuickMath is available in Cydia for free.

iTunes Match and why streaming vs downloading won't matter

iTunes Match and why streaming vs downloading won't matter

Apple released iTunes Match, their iCloud-powered music locker service, into beta yesterday and immediately -- and rightly -- it's been Zapruder-ed by every eyeball online, especially when it comes to whether it downloads music, streams it, or both. And confusion and conflation have followed.

How to export iPhone, iPad UI elements from Photoshop

Marc Edwards of Bjango, and co-host of our Iterate podcast, has put up some pro tips and tricks on exporting iPhone, iPad, and other UI elements from Photoshop.

It’s probably the least interesting part of designing software, usually entailing hours of grinding. Saving images to multiple scales — as required by iOS and other platforms — adds complication to the process. However, there are ways to streamline or automate exporting.

Check out Marc's article, linked below, so you can get your pixel perfect apps and web sites out of Photoshop and into the hands of users.

Bury council set to buy 22 iPads for its garbage collectors

 

Bury council in the UK, is looking to provide its refuse (garbage) collection team with iPads to improve its service. Unfortunately the council is facing huge criticism for the plan due to the need to make £18 million pounds worth of spending cuts. The iPads will set them back around £9,000.

The iPads will be mounted on the refuse collecting trucks dashboard to provide route guidance for the driver. More importantly they will be used to gather data on households who do not recycle or fail to put out their bins altogether.

Yet more supposed iPhone 5 camera parts leak

Yet more supposed iPhone 5 camera parts leak

If tech site Greek-iPhone is to be believed, they've got their hands on even more iPhone 5 components, namely an updated camera module. As always we will take it with a grain of salt but the images appear to line up with what many sites and other blogs have already heard regarding the camera getting an upgrade.

This one includes more megapixels (which is probably a given) and a different form factor from the current camera found in the iPhone 4. It's slimmer and has a more rounded shape. We've been hearing that the next generation iPhone would carry a slimmer form factor and this lines up with that theory.

Developer Spotlight: Mike Smithwick of Distant Suns

Developer Spotlight: Mike Smithwick of Distant Suns

TiPb's developer spotlights are like DVD/iTunes Extras for the App Store -- a weekly look behind the scenes at the programers and designers that bring you the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps and games you love. This week Rene talks with Mike Smithwick of Distant Suns.

What's your name? Mike Smithwick

What's your company's name? First Light Design, LLC, I was hoping to name it something like “Apple,” I know, dumb name, but someone already had it.

Where are you located? San Jose, CA. Within walking distance of Cisco (really!), Intel, eBay, and only a few miles always from the Mother Ship.

What's your website address? www.distantsuns.com

What's your Twitter name? @distantsuns for any hot breaking news about, uh, Distant Suns (duh!). And @lazyastronomer for general space and astronomy geek stuff.

Why @lazyastronomer? When people ask me why I wanted to write Distant Suns, I just told them I was way too lazy to haul a telescope up a mountain and freeze off the stuff I wouldn’t really want to have frozen off just to see something I could create on my iPad while I am watching Lassie reruns on Nickelodeon and eating Cheeze Whiz out of the can. I’m sure your readership can relate to that.

What apps do you make? Distant Suns-Lite, the freebie, Distant Suns 2, the iPhone only version, and Distant Suns 3, the super-double-maga-licious universal version. Then there is WeatherPlanet, Grand Tour-3D and the Live365 music client and a Cisco client for their Pulse software that helps people large companies connect based on specific experience tech expertise needed at the time.
