"This is the start of a whole new phase for the Internet."--- Peter Dengate Thrush, chairman of ICANN

After quarter-century, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers or ICANN started lifting rules in terms of allowing Internet addresses suffixes to be named after brands or products.

The non-profit organization based in California, who was the first to permit the use of ‘.com’ in 1984, announced the new guidelines on Monday. Apple could now end the names of their websites with ‘.ipad’ while Chase could register for the domain which ends with ‘.bank’. Furthermore, environment groups could use the ‘.eco’ suffix.

Samsung Requests Apple to Provide Samples of Upcoming iPhone and iPad

Written on May 30, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter want to make sure that it won't happen again by requesting a sample of the big fruit's upcoming devices.

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter’s legal team requested the Cupertino-based company to hand over next-generation versions of the iPhone and iPad by June 17, 2011. This is done to make sure that Samsung’s own future devices will not be subjected to the same lawsuit that it’s currently facing. The motion, filed last Friday at San Jose, California, asks the court to make Apple provide samples of the ‘final commercial version(s)’ of the iPhone and iPad — along with its retail packaging.

But a week before the request was filed, Apple petitioned to see the final production samples of the unreleased number of Samsung products – including Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9, Galaxy S II, Droid Charge and Infuse 4G. While at that, Samsung asks that only their lawyers – and not the production team – be allowed to see the upcoming Apple devices.

Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung last month alleged the latter of copying the user interface and design features of big fruit’s devices. Samsung fired back by launching a number of patent infringement lawsuits, aiming at Apple’s products in various countries. While the two company compete, they have been close business partners. Nevertheless, the relationship has not kept Samsung and its telecommunications group from being targeted.

Opera Mini releases mobile browser for iPhone and iPad

Written on May 28, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Opera Mini finally lands on the iPhone and iPad. Worth a download for users.

Opera Mini 5 has made its way to iPhone in April last year and quickly became a big hit.

As with Opera Mini for other devices, Opera Mini 6 for iOS doesn’t only allow users to access webpages more quickly over slower connections, it also has a lot of features not found in the native iOS browser, Safari. Better panning and zooming for viewing sites that do not have a mobile stylesheet is one of the features. It then makes it easier for the user to share links or pages via Facebook, Twitter or MyOpera.

Furthermore, iPad users can also use the browser as it has also been designed to fit the larger device.

Opera Mini 6 is worth a download for users looking for something new, especially if you work with slow connections. It has a nice new UI, some enhanced features and is free.

Written on May 18, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Apple has already lowered iPhone 4’s shipment volume for calendar Q2 2011. This is due to the company’s preparation of the unveiling of the newer iPhone in Q3 2011, Digitimes reports.

Another report states that Apple wouldn’t unveil an LTE-equipped iPhone before 2012. Many reports state that the current sizes of the LTE chipsets do not fit in the iPhone’s form factor. Also, the availability of the chipsets wouldn’t reach Apple’s quantity demand for the next iPhone.

Furthermore, Apple was originally expected to ship 7-8 million iPad 2s in the second quarter based on preivous sales performance reports, but will ship 10-10.5 million units in line with its target sales of 35-40 million units in 2011, according to some sources.

What People are Really Doing with Their Tablets

Written on April 12, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

With tablets inching its way in replacing the laptops as a mobile computing device, it’s inevitable to ask the tablet-universe denizens on what they use their devices for. Good thing Google’s AdMob was up to the task as they polled tablet-owners in the U.S. on what they were doing on the devices. Is it for checking e-mails? Reading the digital newspapers, shopping online, playing games?

Well, the results definitely left a lot of people stagger as it seems the tablet is not only here to clash against the laptops, but most likely against the handheld gaming consoles as well (no surprise there, folks).

Check out the chart after the break!

iPad Dominates 2010, Will 2011 Tell the Same Tale?

Written on March 31, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

2010 was the year of the iPad, as the Apple tablet wipes the floor with the competitions' faces. Will 2011 tell the same tale?

The numbers are in (well, most of it), as iPad completely wiped the floor with the competitions’ faces by generating almost 100% of sales revenue in 2010. According to Gartner, out of the total world spendings on tablets of $9.6 billion, Apple’s first born tablet – the iPad – took the lion’s share with $9.566 billion, leaving the scraps of millions to other tablets that went on sale.

Market share for 2010 however, tells another tale as IDC downplays the iPad to 83% compared to the rest of its competitors. Still an impressive feat, but in the end, it’s the money generated that matters instead of market shares.
