Hey guys, well, it seems odd to me that the iPhone 4′s launch date is so far out there, I anticipated a June 18th launch, however, I forgot to take something into account, the Steve factor.
As you all know, Steve used to be the CEO of Pixar and he is now on the board of directors at Disney. So? Take a nice guess at when their biggest film of the year will launch… June 18th.
Toy Story 3 is due out on June 18th, so Apple launching something on the same day would cannibalize sales for both companies alike.
Not Jobs-like at all. So if you can’t wait for iPhone 4, you can blame my childhood favorite, Toy Story.read more
Hey guys, well, I have found something pretty intriguing on Apple’s “iOS 4 Software Update” page. Now, if you recall, back in April, Apple showed off iPhone OS 4.0 and most notably was the neglect for support for home screen wallpaper and multi tasking from the iPhone 3G, well now, the renamed iOS 4.0 seems to have support for home screen wallpapers for the iPhone 3G!
Now, if you are going to jailbreak, sure, it’s as simple as adding a little string (also, adding multi-tasking is just as easy), well, it seems as though something major happened inside of Apple in their iPhone OS/iOS division and Steve Jobs to change this and loosen up on what to allow on older devices.
This is a welcome change seeing as, well, I have an iPhone 3G
Now, as far as I can see, we are the first to find this out, so world, you’re welcome.read more
Well, earlier today, Steve Jobs was giving his keynote at WWDC 2010 when the network started having issues.
it was a rather embarrassing moment for Steve Jobs as he started to feel the pain, especially when he asked Scott Forstall for assistance “Scott, do you have any suggestions?” [laughs] “Verizon!” yells a random WWDC attendee as the crown roars with clapping and laughter.
Now, if you pay attention, Steve Jobs makes the gesture, if you look closely, that looks like he’s saying “well, they caught us”, then, even more shockingly, he smiles. He then goes on to clarify that he is on Wi-Fi.
There is one more thing that is very interesting to me, if you notice, after the guy yells “Verizon” and Steve hears him, he doesn’t turn back towards the audience (and the cameras) until he manages to get back his composure and manages to get rid of his “damn! you got us!” smile.
This tells me a few things, for one, Steve Jobs is aware at how much of a piece of crap AT&T’s network is. As you can notice, when iPhone 4 switches to 3G he says “oh I know that (referring to the Safari failure message), I didn’t want the cellular network”. If Steve had confidence in AT&T, he would be using the “full bars & 3G service”.
To me, it seems as though Steve ordered his iPhone team to make a fake carrier service reception and an AT&T logo. I find it hard to believe that they get full bars at all times.
Finally, I believe that Steve Jobs knows fully well that his talks with Verizon are going well, as well as the Verizon iPhone’s development is going well also. He just doesn’t want to give away any more secrets, as if enough secrets haven’t been exposed.
So, there you go, my analysis on the 1 minute of video that I think will end up proving truth in the next 6 months -> 1 year.

UPDATE: The issue was apparently that there are 570 Wi-Fi base stations there, looks like they are turning off the Wi-Fi. Looks like the world will plunge into darkness for a few minutes while Steve demos. We will update you all on what’s going on as soon as we have a connection to the action.
Well this is not good for Steve. He is really sweating out there because the iPhone refuses to load the page and the iPhone 3G S is beating it to the punch in a demo.
Steve Jobs said “Scott, got any suggestions?” and someone hilariously yelled “Verizon!” hahaha. that just made my day!read more
You gotta see this in person. This is beyond the doubt, the most precise thing, and one of the most beautiful we’ve ever made. Glass on the front and back, and steel around the sides. It’s like a beautiful old Leica camera.
It is 24% thinner than the iPhone 3GS. As a matter of fact, it is the thinnest smartphone on the planet.
We have a front facing camera, micro SIM tray, camera and LED flash on the back.
When you hold this in your hands, it’s unbelievable.
Second one, this is a biggie. Something we call the Retina Display. What’s that? In any display there are pixels. We dramatically increased the pixel density, Four times the amount. Never been a display like this on a phone. The screen has a resolution of 960?×?640 pixels.
326 ppi. 800:1 contrast ratio also 4x better than 3GS. Uses IPS technology for superb color and wide viewing angle. Quite a bit better than OLED.
The iPhone 4 is powered by the same A4 processor that the iPad has. This was designed by our own team. This is wonderful to have in the iPhone.
The iPhone 4 also has a bigger battery. 40% more talk time. 7 hours talk time. 6 hours of 3G browsing, 10 hours of WiFi browsing, 10 hours of video. 40 hours of music. 300 hours of standby.
32GB of storage, quadband HSDPA/HSUPA. Capable of 7.2mbit down 5.8mbit up once carriers support that speed.
Dual microphones and a 802.11n wireless antenna.
iPhone 4 has a 3 axis gyroscope for pitch roll and yaw. We tied the gyro and accelerometer, compass, and gyro together for six axis. It’s perfect for gaming.
5 megapixel camera! Backside illuminated sensor with 1.75 micron pixel size in the sensor. 5x digital zoom in camera app and tap to focus with LED flash. The quality is incredible. Also the camera records HD Video (720p at 30fps).
Priced at $199 and $299 for 16GB and 32GB. Will be released June 24, 2010 on AT&T USA and other countries in July.read more
