BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 - accessory review

The BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber for iPhone 4 is a skin that sticks to the glass black and stainless steel antenna to change up the look and protect from scrapes and abrasions. They're not the same as the thin, clear BodyGuardz films we've shown you how to apply before, and are actually even easier to apply. (Check out the video below to see just how easy.)

Now that I've been using them for 10 days, how are they holding up? Did they stay on or did I go running back to my favorite case? Read on to find out!

Apple slowing iPhone 4 production, gearing up for the next generation iPhone?

According to Digitimes, who are a bit hit and miss with these type of stories, Apple is currently in the process of reducing its demand for iPhone 4 models. According to its source, Apple has reduced its iPhone 4 requirements for the second quarter of 2011 from 20 million units down to 17.5-18 million. These figures are broken down into 16 million 3G models and 1.5 – 2 million CDMA models

As we posted last night, the same source also claims that production of the "iPhone 4S" will begin in August with an earliest launch of September, with a Qualcomm chipset for both CDMA and 3G versions and the rear camera would be an 8-megapixel.

iPhone unlikely to go LTE before 2012? [No, really!]

iPhone unlikely to go LTE before 2012? [No, really!]

Digitimes rumormongers that Apple expected to launch an 4G LTE powered "iPhone 4S" (sigh) this year (double sigh) but has had to push it back to 2012 due to problems with the Qualcomm chipsets.

Apple is likely to delay the launch of its LTE-enabled iPhones to 2012, said the sources, noting that the industry had also long been skeptical about the launch of LTE iPhones in 2011 as the implementation of LTE networks has not yet matured.

Biometric facial recognition security coming to iPhone via Cydia mod [Jailbreak]

Biometric facial recognition security coming to iPhone via Cydia mod [Jailbreak]

Ever wanted to unlock your iPhone simply by having it look at you and recognize who you are? A jailbreak mod called RecognizeMe will be hitting Cydia soon and promises to bring biometric facial recognition security to the iPhone 4. The mod will allow you to unlock your iPhone by scanning your facial features with the front-facing camera and verifying who you are before giving you access.

The tweak offers settings for dialing up the level of security (facial matching), which we're assuming requires a bit more processing time, but the app definitely appears to deliver on its promise of facial recognition security for the iPhone 4. The mod looks a little slow at the moment, but hopefully the developers are able to optimize the code before an official release.

Check out the video after the jump, and let us know what you think in the comments!

iPhone 4 uses same Audience-powered noise cancelation as Nexus One

Proving you can never tear down an Apple product far enough, iFixit has kept digging into [iPhone 4[(http://www.imore.com/iphone-4)'s noise cancellation and finally discovered... it uses the same Audience technology that powered Google Nexus One.

We like mysteries as much as the next guy, so we decided to dig further. Our friends at Chipworks just decapped the chip, and guess what they found? That’s right, an Audience low power audio signal processor.

Trapped in an iPhone [Tuesday fun video]

Trapped in an iPhone [Tuesday fun video]

The video blow shows Ronen Verbit having a silly time playing with a little red ball. It doesn't sound very interesting, until you see how he uses three iPhone 4 screens to tell the story.

Ronen, along with a few friends, were able to shoot three separate videos and combine them into one creative and fun story displayed across the three screens depicting him being 'stuck' inside the iPhone 4. It's rather deviceful (no pun intended!) and they did a great job putting this together -- check out the full video after the jump!
