Beatable

Following its introduction last week, the idea that the new iPad was "unbeatable" began to get a lot of attention, primarily due to an article with that very title. Indeed, when seeing a product like the new iPad, it's easy to get swept away -- there's just so much technology wrapped in so beautiful a package for such an unbelievable price that it's almost impossible not to.

iPhone 5 concept designs start up again

Now that iPhone 4S has come and launched, iPhone 5 (or whatever Apple ends up calling the next generation iPhone), concept designs are once again starting to pop up. This one comes from designer Antonio De Rosa, who created the above iPhone concept and has given it the title of iPhone SJ, as it is Steve Jobs inspired. He imagines it having an A6 processor, a 10 MP camera, and a polycarbonate body. I don't particularly feel that an A6 processor or a better camera are out of the question for the next iPhone.

New Steve Jobs action figure is ultra-realistic, may not last long

Forbes reports that a new Steve Jobs action figure from Inicon is so realistic, the photos actually make it look real. The action figure comes with the following details.

  • one realistic ‘head sculpt;’
  • two pairs of glasses;
  • a ‘highly articulated body;’
  • three pairs of hands;
  • one tiny black turtleneck;
  • one tiny pair of blue jeans;

You can purchase the action figure from Inicon's website, however, we're not exactly sure how long Apple's hordes of lawyers will let this one last -- go grab it while it's still up!

(Note: Inicon seems to be down due to the large amount of traffic they've seen)
