iCloud replaces MobileMe and iWork.com, and groups together functionality previously included in the iTunes, iBooks, and App Stores. It also does setup, backup, and restore, and a host of other things. Unlike MobileMe, Apple has carefully avoided calling iCloud a sync service. Instead, they say it wirelessly stores your content on the server and then pushes it back down to all your devices. This probably better frames the relationship between cloud and devices. There's no single master copy of "truth" on the server, but coequal copies on every device, and on iCloud.com (which Apple notes is ad free. Zing). And just like with iOS, there's no end-user exposed file system. Your data no longer exists in folders like it did on iDisk. It exists in apps. Storage capacity Everyone gets 5GB of iCloud storage for free, and iTunes, iBooks, and App Store purchases aren't counted against that, nor are Photo Stream images. Mail, documents, accounts, settings, app data, Camera Roll, etc. do count, … [Read more...] about iOS 5 review

Editor’s Picks Virtual Reality and Social Networks Will Be a Powerful Combination Simplifying the Picturephone Holographic Video Brings Star Wars-Style 3D Telepresence a Step Closer In the annals of technologies with long gestation periods, few can match video telephony. Punch’s Almanack published a cartoon illustrating the concept way back in 1878. Then, throughout the next century, the idea resurfaced repeatedly in science-fiction comics, motion pictures, pulp stories, and novels. In the animated TV series … [Read more...] about Video Telephony Has Finally Arrived
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. ClarkeHome automation. Smart house. Advanced home control. If those words conjure images of lights mysteriously flashing on and off at random times, fat piles of cash, and sweaty technicians huddled over their laptops programming for weeks at a time, then you need to read on. The truth about home automation today is that technology, competition and innovation have all ravaged its high-priced visage, putting it within virtually anyone’s grasp.Unless you’re Amish and out on your once-in-a-life Rumspringa (if you are out on Rumspringa and you’ve decided to read this site instead of snorting crank off the bellies of strippers and washing it down with bottles of Jack, then, bless you), then you already have some form of automation in your life.Whether it is a garage door opener, an alarm clock, or a glorious pile of remote controls strewn pell-mell across your … [Read more...] about Your home is dumb, but making it smart is cheaper than you think

In what’s becoming a weekly occurrence, AT&T is offering a new deal to its users. Starting Friday, iPhone customers have been receiving a text message from the carrier alerting them they’ve been gifted 1,000 free rollover minutes. It seems to be AT&T’s little way of saying “thanks for not ditching us for the Verizon iPhone.”AT&T hasn’t issued a press release confirming the offering, but 9to5Mac has confirmed the deal. And if you’re an AT&T iPhone subscriber who has not yet received the valuable text message, sending an SMS to 11113020 that reads “YES” by the end of March should do the trick. We tried out sending this text to the number and indeed received the following response: “Thank you for accepting our free 1000 bonus Rollover minute offer. Please allow up to 4 weeks for processing.” So expect a wait until the minutes are actually added to your account.This is just the latest in AT&T’s … [Read more...] about AT&T offers users 1,000 free rollover minutes

The evolution of technology is sometimes cruel. A few years ago, we witnessed the birth of a new breed of small 10-inch Windows laptops called “netbooks.” These compact computers shunned processing power in favor of low price tags, portability, and better battery life, carrying older operating systems like Windows XP and running on Intel Atom processors. Sadly, their short time serving us may be ending. Tablets are taking their place. The touch tablet is evolving, and is already a viable netbook competitor. In the next few years, it will almost certainly take over the category entirely, becoming an accepted alternative to the Intel-based, Windows laptop or desktop you’ve known for the last decade and a half.How did we get here?Thanks to the incredibly fast growth of the smartphone market — which was sparked by the iPhone four years ago and fueled by an army of Android phones ever since — a new breed of computing devices called touch tablets have evolved. … [Read more...] about Back to basics: How smartphones and tablets are shaping your next PC
