Apple reportedly prepping 12.9” iPad Pro for late Q3 2014

Even though Apple has been trying to convince consumers that the iPad is more than just an expensive toy, Android or Windows tablets are still the preferred tablet for enterprise level users looking for something that’s closer to a “real” computer. But if the rumors are true, Apple could be prepping a 12.9” iPad Pro for launch in late Q3 2014, as something aimed towards those enterprise customers that want something to bridge the gap between tablet and laptop, and something a little more substantial than another screen to watch videos and play games on.

Seven years ago today, Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone and blew everybody’s fucking mind

Considering that it’s becoming harder every day to find a phone with any sort of physical keyboard, it’s kinda hard to believe that it was only 2007 when Steve Jobs took the stage at Macworld and changed the world forever with the iPhone.

Apple awarded patent for Lytro-like light field camera system

If you want to take better pictures with your phone, something closer to a “real” camera, you could grab the Nokia Lumia, but since it’s a Windows phone, you’d probably have to give up on all the apps you use on a regular basis. And yeah, Samsung is coming out with its own camera with an optical zoom, but Apple could slap a slim zoom lens on an iPhone any day of the week. What they’ve been waiting for apparently is to blow your fucking mind, with a camera that fits into an iPhone with shoot now, focus later technology like a Lytro. And this past week, they were finally granted the patent for such a camera, after filing the paperwork in 2011. Now if we could just get an iPad Pro…
