NFC Hack For The iPhone 4

NFC is the newest way to pay for your stuff by allowing you to make transactions using your NFC equipped device. This feature is widely integrated in new Android devices but unfortunately, iPhone 4 doesn’t come pre-equipped with this technology.

Lack of a NFC chip hinders iPhone users from enjoying the blessings of near field communications and sometimes it becomes rather annoying for i-users when they see someone using an NFC equipped Android to make their payment (or so we assume). But as long as there is technology, there will always be those looking for ways to make the most out of it. Hopefully, making payments through your iPhone 4 are no more a problem.

Take Panaromic Photos With Your iPhone

The panoramic feature is the widest employed feature in imaging devices. If you are unfamiliar with panoramic, it is a type of photography which allows you to join a series of pictures creating a panorama like 3D view.

Up until now, Panoramic photography was limited to only digital cameras, which came equipped with such lenses that allowed them to capture panoramic stills.

Smartphones lacked this technology as the lens of the smartphone camera is usually not very sophisticated. However, this feature is no longer exclusive to digital cameras. Pixeet has found a solution to this problem.

Be Efficient With iOS 5’s Wireless Update Feature

Apple has recently seeded the beta version of its newest operating system iOS 5 to developers. iOS 5 is currently not available to normal users as it is in a testing phase.

For the first time Apple has introduced the feature of updating the OS over a wireless network without hooking the device up to a PC for downloading.

For this, the user will need to first download the new operating system to the device utilizing 3G or WIFI connectivity. Updating the software by this method would not download the full operating system which requires the download of about 700 MB chunk of data.

Apple To Provide Better Voice Features In iOS 5?

People always demand endless control over electronic gadgets. Probably keeping in view with this theory, voice recognition systems were introduced in smart phones providing the users more freedom of control over the device.

iOS 5 is the upcoming operating system for Apple’s i-devices. iOS seriously lags behind Android because of the latter’s better developed system wide voice recognition system.

iPhone 5 May Be Hitting Us This Fall, Afterall

For the past few months there have been rumors regarding the release of Apple’s new iPhone device. Because of some initial problems faced by the previous iPhone 4, people had been eagerly waiting for a new fault free and upgraded iPhone.

The news on the internet lately had been that Apple would release a slightly enhanced and cheaper version of iPhone 4 known as iPhone 4S sometimes in August or September and the fully features iPhone 5 device in January.

Protect Your iPhone 4 In Aerospace Grade Titanium

We don’t cover iPhone cases very often, and that’s because they’re usually not that cool. But I think this case is definitely the exception to the rule. The iPhone 4 case is called the fireTI and is made from 6AL-4V aerospace grade titanium.

Although I don’t think it will help very much in shock-proofing your mobile phone, say if it happens to fall 4-5 feet. I think the main reason why anyone would wanna spend $225 on an iPhone case is because it looks damn cool, and everytime you have to take a call, you’d be using a friggen titanium case.

MORIS iPhone App Uses Facial Recognition To Catch Suspects

The next time you think about doing something you should be doing, keep in mind that cops now have an app that integrates facial recognition technology while pulling up a person’s criminal record, all with the tap of a button.

The accessory is currently exclusively available for the iPhone and simply requires a photo of the persons phase or iris for identification purposes. Obviously, this app would only be helpful to catch criminals dumb enough not to wear a mask (but you’d be surprised of how many of those, there are).

The Man Behind Galaxy S II Leaves Samsung
