Steve Jobs: iPad promises freedom from porn

Steve Jobs: iPad promises freedom from porn

In the bizarro world in which we might live, this late-night exchange between Gawker/Valleywag's Ryan Tate and Apple's CEO, Steve Jobs, where we're promised a world free of porn, hardly even surprises any more.

Well, except that Jobs engages and responds far longer than I'd have figured he would. Since it's long and provided in graphic form, we'll just paraphrase the highlights and you can hit the read link for the whole screen-capped exchange:

Tate: Would Dylan think the iPad was a revolution, freedom?

Jobs:Yep, freedom from data theft, from battery trashing, from porn.

Steve Jobs: WWDC 2010 focusing on iPhone OS, normal cycle, no hidden meaning, move along

Steve Jobs: WWDC 2010 focusing on iPhone OS, normal cycle, no hidden meaning, move along

If you're curious as to why IT tracks are gone, Mac tracks are limited, and Apple Design Awards are restricted to the iPhone and iPad for WWDC 2010, there are few people better equipped to answer you than Steve Jobs, CEO and Chief Customer Service Rep, of Apple Inc:

The email:

Is there any particular reason Apple has dropped the Design Awards for the Mac? Any plans to have them again in the future?

The Steve Jobs response:

We are focusing primarily (though not exclusively) on iPhone OS this year. Maybe next year we will focus primarily on the Mac. Just the normal cycle of things. No hidden meaning here.

BabyBump pregnancy tracker for iPhone - app review

BabyBump pregnancy tracker for iPhone - app review

BabyBump is a pregnancy tracking application for the iPhone, and excellent for both mothers- and dads-to-be or anyone interested in following someone's pregnancy.

The home screen of BabyBump displays your chosen avatar, name, how many weeks and days you are along in your pregnancy, what trimester you're in, and how many days left until your due date. BabyBump is divided into 8 different sections:

  • Weekly info - This is my favorite section. BabyBump gives the approximate length and weight of your baby and compares his/her size to a fruit or vegetable. It also provides information about your Baby's developmental stage, what to expect with your body, and a health tip.
  • Journal - Here is where can record your weight, waist size, moods, and appointments. You can view charts of your weight and waist changes.
  • Photos - A place to store photos.
  • Birth - This is an excellent section of BabyBump. There is a very tasteful and informative video of the birth process, a list of newborn essential items that you need for Baby's arrival, and a checklist of your birth plan. When your baby is born, come to this section to create a quick birth announcement and send directly to Twitter, Facebook, and email.
  • Kick counter - A nice timer to record kick sessions.
  • Contractions - A similar counter to record contractions.
  • Baby names - An organized list of 1000 boy and 1000 girl names. You can store a list of favorite names and add any names that aren't on the list.
  • Community - This is a forums board. There are many different forum categories including a section for dads!

I have been using BabyBump since December and have seen multiple updates and improvements in the past months. BabyBump is an excellent iPhone companion for pregnancy; in fact, it's a must-have app for anyone pregnant.

iPhone HD/iPhone 4G "finder" turned in by roommate

iPhone HD/iPhone 4G "finder" turned in by roommate

When Apple engineer Gray Powell's prototype iPhone HD/iPhone 4G fell from his bag in a bar, it was "found" by Brian Hogan, and -- as it turns out now -- it was Hogan's roommate, Katherine Martinson, who turned Hogan in. Here's the gist, including Hogan's obvious effort to enter into karma receivership right from the start:

“Sucks for him,” Hogan allegedly told Martinson. “He lost his phone. Shouldn’t have lost his phone.”

Fieldrunners for iPad - app review

6

Fieldrunners for iPad - app review

Fieldrunners for the iPad, from Subatomic Studios, LLC, is a tower defense-style game, where the object is to obliterate the fieldrunners before they get to your base. To do this you place weapons on the field so that they will take out all fieldrunners before they get to the other side.

You start the game with 20 lives, which translates into 20 enemies that may pass through your defenses before the game ends. The placement of your defences is in real time, though after each level you do get a small amount of time before the fieldrunners start their attack. Strategy is paramount, as the towers you set up early in the game are still in play for later levels. You do not want to have to sell and move around towers as this will use up valuable resources (arms sales are not as profitable as they once were).

A large green ring indicates where your tower can be placed, a red ring indicates a illegal placement. The size of the ring shows you the range of the weapon which is very important for game strategy. Just clicking on the weapon will bring up the upgrading/sell options. Fieldrunners allows you to choose what difficulty you want to play in. So for veteran tower defense players starting on easy may be quite a bore, however as the game progresses each Fieldrunner you obliterate gains you more funds to purchase weapons.

The controls are very simple -- just point click and drag. You place your finger on the tower you want and then drag it to the location you want. All of the game options are also accessible through the game with a touch of your finger. You can also choose to put Fieldrunners into fast forward to accelerate the onslaught.

The game graphics are very clean and cartoonish yet not childish. Even the background of the game is beautifully rendered along with little bugs and flowers (not girly, I promise!).

Fieldrunners is really fun game for anyone who enjoys the tower defense genre. The increasing levels of difficulty keep Fieldrunners enjoyable and challenging. Well worth the price tag.

[$7.99 - iTunes Link]
