iOS 4.1 features: Game Center take 2

iOS 4.1 features: Game Center take 2

iOS 4.1 beta comes with a newly re-designed Game Center preview. Game Center in its original form was present in all the iOS 4 betas but was removed from the general, public release. Previously all dark and blue and ovaly, that remains in the sign-up sections but the new Game Center has a background of billiard-table green and fonts -- well, that make Notes' Marker Felt seem restrained.

WSJ: Apple knew of antenna risk Apple: No we didn't, [and no recall?]

WSJ: Apple knew of antenna risk Apple: No we didn't, [and no recall?]

The Wall Street Journal, and specifically reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane, which have both provided information in the past suspected to have come from Apple, have an article up in which they site sources saying Apple new of the risks with their new antenna design -- something Apple denies -- and that there won't be a recall.

Apple Inc. released its newest iPhone despite internal concerns about its antenna reception, and gave wireless carriers far less time to test the phone than is typical, according to people familiar with the matter.

iOS 4 vs. iOS 4.0.1 (and iOS 4.1) signal mapping changes

iOS 4 vs. iOS 4.0.1 (and iOS 4.1) signal mapping changes

Anandtech compared the differences in signal mapping between iOS 4 and iOS 4.0.1 (and iOS 4.1) and concluded that Apple has indeed produced a much more reliable system (meaning the old system was less than honestly reporting strength):

As you can see the old way (top) put far too much weight into the 5th bar of signal. Apple's new approach not only splits it up more reasonably between the 4th and 5th bar (still non-linearly keeping you in the 5th bar if possible) but also extends the range of the lower bars.

Calcbot for iPad (and iPhone) - app review

5

Calcbot for iPad (and iPhone) - app review

Calcbot is a universal calculator application for iPad and iPhone. It is a basic scientific calculator but is designed well with big buttons and tape. For this review, we will be focusing on the iPad version.

In landscape, you will find the calculator on the left and tape on the right. The calculator has two pages of buttons which keeps them nice and big. Just swipe the calculator to the left to bring the next page of functions. The first page is primarily numbers and basic operators as well as power and root functions. The second page contains a more functions such at the specific powers of 2 and 3, square root, factorial, log, natural logarithm, exponential, and trigonometric functions. Tapping the shift key (up arrow) will change the trigonometric functions to their inverses. Calcbot lets you chose between radians and degrees as well. The second page does not include an equal sign. This is annoying because a calculation does not appear on the tape until the equal sign is tapped.

If you want to re-enter a calculation from the tape, just tap the desired calculation and a menu pops up to use result, use expression, copy, send in email, or delete. You can also swipe to delete any expression. To email or clear the entire tape, tap the wheel in the upper right hand corner. If you're not interested in seeing the tape, rotate to portrait mode to view only the calculator.

Calcbot is an excellent little calculator app that looks and works great. There is nothing fancy about it, but that's part of it's appeal. Calcbot is strait-forward and to the point which makes it easy and intuitive to use. Simply put, Calcbot is another visually appealing and terrifically designed app by Tapbots.

Screenshots after the break!
