Steve Jobs and Phil Schiller on why it took 10 months to launch the white iPhone 4

While speaking to Mobilizer about location data, Apple CEO Steve Jobs and SVP of Marketing, Phil Schiller, explained the 10 month delay in launching the white iPhone 4.

“It was challenging. It’s not as simple as making something white. There’s a lot more that goes into both the material science of it–how it holds up over time…but also in how it all works with the sensors.”

"We thought we were there a year ago, or less than that, when we launched the iPhone 4, and we weren’t."

Updated: Apple building traffic database system

Did Apple just let an iOS 5 (or iOS 6) feature out of the bag during their location data Q&A? It sure looks like it if you examine the answer below:

Apple is now collecting anonymous traffic data to build a crowd-sourced traffic database with the goal of providing iPhone users an improved traffic service in the next couple of years.

Steve Jobs comments on location data

Following up on Apple's location data Q&A, posted earlier today, Mobilizer spoke with CEO Steve Jobs and other members of the executive team.

“We haven’t been tracking anyone,” Jobs said in a telephone interview with Mobilized on Wednesday. “The files they found on these phones, as we explained, it turned out were basically files we have built through anonymous, crowdsourced information that we collect from the tens of millions of iPhones out there.”

As to why Apple seems to get singled out in media and investigations, Jobs said he'll be looking to see coverage of their competitors.

iOS 4.3.3 coming soon?

As part of their location data Q&A, Apple today revealed that an iOS update -- iOS 4.3.3? -- would be arriving "Sometime in the next few weeks". So far, Apple has only revealed that the update will:

  • reduces the size of the crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower database cached on the iPhone,
  • ceases backing up this cache, and
  • deletes this cache entirely when Location Services is turned off.

In the next major iOS software release the cache will also be encrypted on the iPhone.

Apple posts Q&A on Location Data

Apple posts Q&A on Location Data

Following the media circus/storm last week involving location data, how it's collected and where it's stored, Apple has decided to post an online Q&A to address the issues.

  1. Why is Apple tracking the location of my iPhone?
    Apple is not tracking the location of your iPhone. Apple has never done so and has no plans to ever do so.
  2. Then why is everyone so concerned about this?
    Providing mobile users with fast and accurate location information while preserving their security and privacy has raised some very complex technical issues which are hard to communicate in a soundbite. Users are confused, partly because the creators of this new technology (including Apple) have not provided enough education about these issues to date.

Cast of Disney's "Lemonade Mouth" flash mob Los Angeles Apple Store [video]

Cast of Disney's "Lemonade Mouth" flash mob Los Angeles Apple Store [video]

Over the Easter weekend, some of the cast of Disney's Lemonade Mouth decided to turn up at the Apple Store in The Grove, Los Angeles and flash mob it. Flash mobbing is a newish craze that involves a group of people turning up at a location and performing an unusual act or performance without permission.

The routine, lead by Chris Brochu and Hayley Kiyoko, two of the film's stars, organised the flash mob with 15 other friends and decided to capture the whole performance on video. They performed the song Determinate from the Disney Channel production Lemonade Mouth.

The video is after the break, take a look and enjoy the looks on the customers faces and Apple Store staff gently escorting them out of the building!

Unbaked

Unbaked

I spent a couple hours this weekend trying out the BlackBerry PlayBook and Android 3.0, Honeycomb-powered Motorola Xoom tablets. I'd tried the PlayBook and seen the Xoom before at CES 2011, but both were unfinished at the time and I was interested in seeing what the shipping versions were like. Unfortunately, the shipping versions were still unfinished, or more properly, unbaked. They reminded me of cookie dough.

Cookie dough has all the right ingredients, so much so that people can and do enjoy it in its raw, unbaked state. They nibble at it, lick it off mixers, and eat ice cream filled with chunks of it. And why not? It's delicious... In nibbles and licks and chunks. But no matter how good it is in small doses, you inevitably wish someone would just bake it already.

TweetDeck for iPhone, take 2

TweetDeck hasn't launched an all new version of their popular Twitter client for iPhone -- they've launched a whole new app. It supports a ton of features:

  • All major Twitter features are supported: Sending updates, retweeting (native and old-style), favourites, mentions, direct messages and searching
  • Posting to multiple Twitter accounts is a breeze
  • Facebook status updates, notifications, wall posts, Likes and comments are all at your fingertips
  • Configurable, combined Home, Me and Inbox columns are standard, bringing all your feeds and notifications together
  • Fully flexible custom columns allow the combination of any number of different feeds, from all services and all accounts. You decide what you want to see, just pinch a column and start configuring.
  • Innovative navigation of Twitter profiles helps you discover new feeds that can all be added as columns at the touch of a button
  • See the conversation in context with tweets above and below in detail view.
  • Easily send long posts thanks to full Deck.ly support
  • Clean & clear compose window features image uploading, geo-tagging and username autocomplete for @mentions. Press and hold a link to auto-shorten using j.mp
  • Login with your TweetDeck account to speed through the setup process, or just provide a Twitter or Facebook account and get started.
  • Jump to the top of a column with a quick tap of the iPhone status bar.

With features, however, comes complexity -- starting at login and going from there. No doubt a lot of users will love the power but many more will probably shake their head and go backLike we said up top, it's not a new version so it won't show up as an update -- you have to hit the link below and install the new app. If you do, let me know what you think -- the Twitter client of your dreams or... of your nightmares?
