Natuba – iPhone Photo Sharing Site

Natuba – iPhone Photo Sharing

Very Interesting!
5F67998C-DC28-423D-9D1B-AB4AACECC3EC.jpgWhat is Natuba?
Natuba is the original iPhone photo sharing site.

It’s the easiest way to put your iPhone photos on the web for your friends to see and discuss.

After getting iPhones, we began taking photos on the go and soon realized we needed an easy way to share them with our friends.
Although there were plenty of photo sharing sites on the web, none of these sites were designed specifically for iPhone users.

So we created Natuba, a site for uploading, sharing and viewing photos from your iPhone.

Worlds Largest Apple Store Opens soon in Boston!

New Boston Apple Store Largest In the World [Apple Store]

2C0E7E80-3F0A-4874-9465-CD9331A501B7.jpg

Later this month, Apple is opening its latest flagship store on Boylston Street in Boston. The store’s main claim to fame? It’s huge. We’re talking largest Apple Store in the world, by square footage. The store, in the city’s historic Back Bay district, looks like a four-story glass cube. It’s the first store inside Boston proper and the first with (finally) easy subway access. According to a store employee, it’s a good thing Boylston Street is so big: Apple estimates 1,500-2000 customers/hour will visit — more than 10 times the 160/hour that the average store gets. It’s something else inferiority-complex ravaged Bostonians can hold over New York.

According to Apple itself, NAB rumours that it wants to unload Final Cut Pro and other post products are wide of the mark,” Dick Hobbs reports for TVBEurope.

“‘I can categorically state, on the record, that is not the case,’ said Richard Townhill, Apple’s director of marketing for professional video applications, going on to reveal that recently Apple hit the milestone of one million paid licences for Final Cut Pro. According to research specialist SCRI, in 2007 Apple took 49% of the US professional editing marketing with Avid trailing on just 22%,” Hobs reports.

iPhone-optimized site – Associated Press

Associated Press launches iPhone-optimized site

169702DE-95E0-489C-A544-7A9D01CB6F45.jpgEarlier today, the Associated Press launched an iPhone-optimized news site that really is pleasant to use. To check it out on your iPhone simply visit http://apnews.com. Once there you’ll find AP articles, of course, but also local events (in fact, you can enter several zip codes and follow events from several locations) and more from many different outlets.

The preference pane looks like that of a native iPhone application (Save the orange sliders instead of blue) and the photos and videos render pretty quickly, even over EDGE. Plus, they’ve got a cute web clip icon. What more do you need?

It’s nice to see the AP catering to mobile users. We say, “Well done.”

New Segway, i2 Real Green Now

Segway i2 Real Green Now

F867AE6B-1317-47BA-8596-834A94092614.jpgSegway has decided to really go green with its i2 by coming in that particular color. Officially known as Metallic Sage, Segway claims that the color “has a goldish finish with hues of green and a metallic underbody that grabs changing light.” I think no matter how green the Segway i2 is, most people will still shun it since it is just not as worth purchasing compared to a really cheap car. After all, you can’t go around picking up chicks in a nightclub with this one-seater, right?

iPod touch and iPod nano owners will be able to enjoy new offerings from Griffin Technology, with the former getting a FlexGrip case while the latter is blessed with the FlexScreen case. The FlexGrip features a two-tone silicone case with a smooth front as well as a textured, nubby rear surface which provides additional grip, making it perfect for those suffering from sweaty palms. Other features include a full-face screen protector (for the touch) and Click Wheel protectors (for the nano). As for the two-piece FlexScreen, you get a clear silicone case featuring the same textured back as the FlexGrip and a clear hard polycarbonate face shield.

AT&T disables free iPhone WiFi??? Why AT&T WHY?

AT&T disables free iPhone WiFi?

613EA126-5A12-4AD7-B7FE-C49D14EF8528.jpgLast week we posted about AT&T offering free WiFi access for iPhone customers at several of their hotspot locations, including a few Starbucks stores. According to MacRumors, AT&T has disabled this free service. However, since AT&T never made an official announcement of this service, it seems possible that the free service was launched early (possibly for testing). AT&T representatives have declined to comment on the issue.

If you got a glimpse of the free future and have now seen that wireless door slam shut again, let us know.
