The fine folks at Sling were kind enough to give TiPb a demo of their soon-to-be submitted to the Apple iTunes App Store SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone client and it looked all shades of sweet. In addition to great H.264 quality and video overlays, they went all the way and implemented "swipe to change channels". We. Want. This. Now.
Watch the video for the full on demo, and let us (and Sling, and Apple) know what you think.
Apple has posted a streaming Quicktime video of Phil Schiller's Macworld 2009 Keynote, covering iLife 09, iWork 09, the unibody 17" MacBook, and iTunes Plus -- and more importantly for us, iPhone 2G/3G music downloads, the Keynote Remote App, and iPhoto slide export for the iPhone.
Say it is not so AT&T. Another outage seemed to take place this morning, mostly effecting the East coast this time. It was a little over a week ago where myself and Dieter, in the Midwest, noticed something was a little off - to say the least - with our service. Both data and voice were effected then. In the end, that was blamed on a power failure.
Wanted is a simple picture editing application that turns a picture of a person into a wanted poster. The poster can then be printed out onto a piece of paper for the office. Don’t worry the output file is much larger than a normal iPhone picture.
The app begins with a menu and “wild-west” type music. You have the option to turn the music on and off as you wish. I found listening to the music relevant to the app, but turned it off after awhile.
Not only did Apple introduce a new version of their flagship iLife 09 (see our MASSIVE Live Blog!), Phil Schiller demonstrated an awesome new feature for iPhone and iPod touch users: direct export of slide shows to iTunes!
Along with some truly gorgeous templates and amazing transitions, the ability to make them mobile -- so you can easily take them to show family and friends -- is killer for iPhone and iPod touch owners.
iPhoto 09, and the rest of iLife including the equally tremendous upgrade to iMovie, ships in late January free on new Macs, $79 for a single user, $99 for a family pack.
Keynote users rejoice! As part of his Macworld Keynote today (see our MASSIVE Live Blog!), Phil Schiller announced a Keynote Remote App for the iPhone! Connect via WiFi and Boom! In portrait view you see your slide and notes. Rotate to landscape mode and you get current and next slide.
Where does the control come in? Where else! Swipe to switch slides!
The App (if approved, and not using any sneaky API's - haha!) will cost $0.99 and looks all shades of awesome.
We have the deets in photo on the new 17" MacBook with the ridiculously large 8 hours of battery life, the fact that iTunes is going 100% DRM-Free, the new iLife with GarageBand Music Lessons, iMovie's stunning upgrades, and iPhoto's geo-tagging and face-recognition, and also the new iWork with Keynote -- which now has an iPhone-based remote for switching slides and reading your notes.
Um, yeah, this was a huge Macworld for Mac people -- and the iTunes DRM news and the Keynote news were incredibly great upgrades for iPhone owners.
Makes you weep that Apple will never go to a Macworld again, don't it?
