Apple takes pride in releasing 200 million iOS devices, and 425,000 apps -- 100,000 of which are designed for iPads.

The year 2011 has been one of the most remarkable years for the Apple company, as they’ve been able to showcase a total of 425,000 applications and an increasing number of 100,000 iPad apps, elevating from the 90,000 number reported last month. There was also a record of billion applications that were downloaded from the App store every month, and almost 14 million units of iPads being produced for the quarter.

As stated by chief operations officer, Tim Cook, Apple became “the mother of all backlogs” when they released the iPad 2 this spring. The company’s suppliers have been affected by the earthquake that hit and damaged Japan. As the winter quarter opens, the sales of iPad grew to 7.33 million, but it decreased to 4.69 during the first calendar quarter of 2011.

Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch will come together to launch 'The Daily' next week in San Francisco.

According to Cutline, Apple’s big boss Steve Jobs will join News Corp head Rupert Murdoch on stage to launch the newest magazine for iPad called The Daily next week.

The media big wigs will make an appearance together at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for the launch.

As Yahoo! News speaks of it:

“Known as The Daily, Murdoch’s iPad publication has been the talk of the media world over the past couple months, and the News Corp. chief has even dubbed it his “No. 1 most exciting project.” The hush-hush project has been taking shape at the company’s Manhattan headquarters, but it will also have staffers in Los Angeles.Jesse Angelo left Murdoch’s New York Post, where he was second in command, to run The Daily, and former Viacom digital distribution boss Greg Clayman came aboard to run the business side. Murdoch is reportedly willing to sink $30 million into the project.The cash infusion has spurred The Daily into a high-profile hiring spree over the past couple of months. So far, Angelo and his team have brought in a number of top-notch journalists from media outlets such as the New Yorker, the Daily Beast, Forbes, AOL and Politico.”

Another news leaked out saying that Murdoch and Jobs are working on a project together but the plans are not yet confirmed. Jobs is also rumored to be joining the Verizon Wireless CEO Lewell McAdam for the Verizon iPhone launch.

Galaxy Tab vs iPad: Let the Tablet Wars Begin

Written on January 07, 2011 by B Waldorf

2 persons

We cannot deny that iPad's charm got most people's nods. On the other hand, Galaxy Tab is the first tablet to have the features comparable to iPad. Allwelike's last say? iPad is a sure hit but Galaxy Tab cannot be taken for granted.

iPad made the world go round for quite and it did not last long upon the arrival of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab. The great battle between Android and iOS shifted to tablets. In case you are caught in the middle of this war, let Allwelike clear all the confusion.

Before Allwelike start the comparison, get to know first fast facts about a tablet. A tablet is more or less like a notebook. A small computer that substitutes the laptop. Using your fingers, you touch and swipe the features to execute a command. A smart device that lets you do multi tasking. It is portable and helps you get things done anytime and anywhere.

See how the competition between the two tablets went after the break.

No More Dongle Sports Kit for Nike+, Only GPS

Written on September 08, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

Running sensor Dongle has worn out in the suitability section. What fills its place now is a friendly and familiar software we all, if not have it, know.

Running with Nike can now be tracked via a software-play in compatible iDevices. The App Store tags it as Nike+ GPS. Employing a GPS radio, the iDevice app plots as it traces your run on a map. Your iPhone can also record your pace using an accelerometer. Your iPod Touch runs compatible with it, too, but without showing map displays. And you can use the tracker on iPad as well, but that is if you want to create a sight.

The online backtracking of previous runs makes the Nike+ scheme attractive and relevant. And that capability has come to the local app. Now you can browse your running history with your iDevices and even share them with the existing Nike+ site.

The only lure the Dongle remains to have is the iPod Nano. The new, squared-off Nano still works in the scheme of things on Nike+, although most of its functions have been scrapped. But the software-only solution still bumps it miles away. Go for the GPS and save 27 bucks, the thing only costs a couple of dollars.
