App for That: How to blur sensitive material from photos

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, KP asks:

I sometimes need to take a quick pic and upload it to Facebook but need to blur out some incriminating evidence first (don't ask!!) I know there must be an app that let's me do that but damned if I can find it. Can you recommend something?

Tim Cook says iPad will eventually outsell PCs

According to Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope, Apple COO Tim Cook suggested during a meeting that the tablet market -- which is currently dominated by the iPad -- could eclipse the PC market over the next several years.

Shope says, "the company appeared more overtly optimistic on the long-term prospects for the iOS platform than it has been in quite some time." Cook said, "he sees no reason why the tablet market shouldn’t eclipse the PC market over the next several years," according to Shope's note.

Moscone banner shows off iCloud icon in advance of WWDC 2011

Look through the glass and what do we see, the iCloud logo on a banner at WWDC! Yes, it does seem like someone traced the MobileMe icon to make the iCloud icon but that's also a nice little bit of continuity.

iTunes/App Store down?

Looks like Apple is having some trouble with the iTunes and App Stores today, as tons of you are telling us you're getting that nasty little "could not complete request" error message above. Whether or not it has anything to do with the the ginormous new Data Center, or the coming iCloud, we don't know and can't tell you, but we're keeping an eye on things and will update as we get more info.

Hail, Dieter, and farewell!

28

Hail, Dieter, and farewell!

Today is Dieter Bohn's last day with TiPb and the Smartphone Experts Network. Up until today, our editor-in-chief, Dieter founded TiPb -- then PhoneDifferent -- for SPE, recruited yours truly and most of the other staff at our sibling sites, and taught us how to run sites, communities, and generally be better bloggers than any of us could have imagined.

Dieter's going to take a short, and much deserved vacation, but then promises to be back with new endeavors. We wish him well! Our good buddy Kevin Michaluk will be stepping in to help fill his big, blond shoes, and Derek Kessler is taking the reigns over at PreCentral. Phil at Android Central and Dan at WPCentral... well, you're still stuck with us.

We're going to miss Dieter terribly, but we're also incredibly excited at what's coming next for SPE. It's a new start for everyone, and we can't wait to share it with you.

Poll: iPhone, iPad, or PC for browsing the web?

Poll: iPhone, iPad, or PC for browsing the web?

Which do you prefer for browsing the web, iPhone, iPad, or PC?Market Research

What's your absolute favorite device for browsing the web -- iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or your Mac or Windows PC? I'm a little torn myself.

The iPhone is great when I'm out and about and have no other options, but it's small and doesn't support Flash, and it's not a fast experience.

iPad is big and beautiful and I love it for reading and relaxing but it also doesn't support Flash and I can't type on it as fast as I need to for things like blogging here on TiPb.

Daily Tip: How to upgrade from an existing jailbreak

This tip will help you learn how to upgrade from an existing jailbreak. If you're currently jailbroken on an older firmware version and want to update, it can sometimes be a bit trickier than just restoring in iTunes and backing up. In most cases, it's always best to start with a clean slate and not restore from a jailbroken backup (with a few exceptions). Luckily there are a couple apps and tweaks out there that make the process not as daunting. Hit the break for some suggestions and a walk-through!

Twitter announces new search, their own photo hosting

Twitter announces new search, their own photo hosting

Twitter today announced improved search, and first-party (i.e. Twitter's own) image hosting service.

Today we're starting to roll out a completely new version of Twitter search. Not only will it deliver more relevant Tweets when you search for something or click on a trending topic, but it will also show you related photos and videos, right there on the results page. It's never been easier to get a sense of what's happening right now, wherever your curiosity takes you.

The image hosting is an even bigger deal, given the someone dubious licensing terms some third party hosts have been putting in place (taking ownership of users' photos as their own).

Millions of people share photos on Twitter every day. We're going to make that easier than ever. Over the next several weeks, we'll be releasing a feature to upload a photo and attach it to your Tweet right from Twitter.com. And of course, you'll soon be able to easily do this from all of our official mobile apps. A special thanks to our partner Photobucket for hosting these photos behind the scenes.

So expect updates for Twitter for iPhone and Twitter for iPad soon to take advantage of these new features... and perhaps some bigger announcements come the WWDC keynote on Monday...

Video after the break!
