iPhone 5 is Time Magazine’s ‘Gadget of the Year’

Time Magazine has named iPhone 5 its Gadget of the Year for 2012. The device is “one of the most artfully polished gadgets anyone’s ever built,” says Time’s Harry McCracken. He highlights the new thinner design and the camera’s “particularly well-done panorama mode.” McCracken concludes, “hen it comes to melding hardware, software and services so tightly that the seams fade away, Apple still has no peer.” The MacBook Pro with Retina display also made it onto the list at number six.

Procreate updated, now supports 4K (yes, that's 16MP!) canvas sizes

Things are moving so swiftly on the iPad creative scene. Just over a year after Savage provided an HD canvas in Procreate, version 1.7 embraces the next step in high-end display sizes, 4K. It’s hard to believe that a thin tablet computer costing as little as $329 has the power to support touch painting at 60fps on a 10MP canvas, or 16MP for the iPad 3/4, but such is the speed at which the iPad is pushing into new territory. The latest version of Procreate features a wealth of other new feature – go hit the update button now. As an aside, we are thrilled to see the stunning artwork of Nikolai Lockertsen featured within the app and on the Procreate web site! App Store Link: Procreate Powered by WPeMatico Read On

Foldify, a different take on 3D printing

Foldify from Pixle on Vimeo. It may not be 3D printing in the popular sense of the term, but it sure does look like a cheap way to dip a toe into the future. Out on the 13th December, Foldify allows iPad owners to ‘draw, create, print and fold’ 3D figures. It’s the interaction between the virtual and physical that’s really fired my imagination.

Apple iMac Review: A Reason to Get a Desktop Computer

Reviewing the new iMac on ABC News, Joanna Stern says the desktop has “as much sex appeal” as iPad and iPhone. “Even if you aren’t a tech enthusiast,” Stern writes, “this is a machine — or perhaps sculpture — you can admire.” Stern says the improved display’s sharpness makes looking at photos and video “an immersive experience,” and she praises the iMac’s enhanced computing power, including Fusion Drive. “Apple has built the system with the most powerful desktop parts around,” she says.

Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi. Classic Dreamcast games find a new home on the iPad

We are huge fans of Sega’s final games console. Given that it was released in November 1998, the Dreamcast provided a surprisingly solid hardware platform for so many of the classic video games of that era. As we’ve mentioned before, the iPad is in many ways the spiritual successor to the Dreamcast, so it’s deeply satisfying to see two epic Dreamcast titles make their way to the iPad recently. Crazy Taxi is frantic free roaming time challenge driving game that oozes character. Jet Set Radio, with its cell-shaded graphics and quirky design/music is a totally unqiue experience that should not be missed. Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio and Shenmue together constitute the Dreamcast’s ‘big 3’. We are hoping that every Dreamcast conversion gets us that little bit closer to playing Shenmue on the iPad. We can’t wait! App Store Links: Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio Further Reading: We Want: Shenmue for iPad Powered by WPeMatico Read On

Apple Puts Eye into iDevices

Reporting in the Sydney Morning Herald, Garry Barker describes how Apple accessibility technology has enabled disabled users to thrive both personally and professionally. Barker tells the story of David Woodbridge, a technology manager for a large non-profit who has been blind since childhood. Woodbridge uses VoiceOver and other assistive technologies in Apple’s iOS devices daily. “With VoiceOver I can support not only myself but also my boys and my wife,” said Woodbridge. “For example, if my wife gets an SMS when she is driving I can call up VoiceOver on her iPhone to read the message to her and we can reply using Siri, which is one of the great iOS developments, getting better all the time.” Powered by WPeMatico Read On
