  • The terms "Scratchgate" and "Scuffgate" have surfaced as early adopters of the iPhone 5 complain of unsightly marks on the aluminum back

     


    Okay, so it's not exactly a national scandal on the scale of Watergate, but there's a kerfuffle all across the web over the reputed inadequacy of the new iPhone 5's aluminum back.


    The fact that the aluminum is prone to scratching has users and tech sites shouting Scratchgate and Scuffgate, and even led to cries of "oh, the humanity!" Proud new owners of the iPhone 5 have already been complaining of unsightly scratches and scuffs on the black-coated aluminum of their new prized possession.


    And, as 9to5 Mac reported, one such user actually garnered a response from Apple's Senior VP of Marketing, Phil Schiller, who told him: “Any aluminum product may scratch or chip with use, exposing its natural silver color. That is normal.”


    Fair enough. The aluminum backing of the iPhone 5 may be prone to wear, but it is actually less fragile than the glass backing of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. And even in a Gizmodo video where one user is determined to “scratch the hell” out of the new device within store, the iPhone 5 holds up pretty well, though it's never rubbed against sharp metal objects like keys or rings.



    Still, all of this brings us to an important, if awkward, discussion:


    It's fun to have the latest smartphone. You love Apple ever so much, and you and your new iPhone are planning to make a life together – at least until the next model comes out, that is.


    But the fact is, just because you trust your smartphone, there's no reason not to use protection. It's for your iPhone's good as much as your own. So glove the love.


    Yes, we're talking about cases and covers. In the case of the iPhone 4 and 4S, a rugged case is best (we've all seen those tragic shots of shattered glass.) But for the iPhone 5, a simple skin just to protect the black finish may be enough to do the trick.


    The result of unprotected smartphone love: the cracked glass panel of an iPhone 4

     


    Meanwhile, the moral of this story extends beyond Apple's products, to any smartphone you want to keep in good shape. To paraphrase Beyoncé, if you liked it then you should have put a skin on it.

  • LifeProof's new Nüüd iPad case promises "barely there" waterproof protection

     


    Humankind's fascination with gadgets can only be rivalled by our longstanding fascination with water.


    So, even though we quake with fear at the thought of submerging our iPads, iPhones and other devices, it shouldn't really surprise us that, when people go swimming or surfing, they want to take their tablet or smartphone along.


    We've already seen something of the waterproofing trend from LifeProof – the San Diego-based company boasts what's been called the slimmest waterproof case for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.


     


    But now, the New York Times' Gadgetwise blog is reporting on the company's latest in elemental shielding for Apple devices.


    This time, LifeProof has taken its efforts to tablets, with the waterproof Nüüd iPad case. The product gets its name from the fact that there's actually no screen covering – your iPad's naked glass screen is already waterproof, and adding an extra film on top only reduces clarity.


    Instead, the Nüüd case seals around the glass and provides a waterproof backing for the rest of the iPad. There's also access at the bottom for charging and syncing, so you don't have to constantly take the case off and put it back on again.


    As Gadgetwise points out, you still may not want to do any serious snorkeling with your iPad, since it wasn't really designed for that. But the new iPad case is great for poolside, a day at the beach, or any other routine encounter with water.


    You may swear to have never texted on the toilet, but show me the techie who says they've never brought their phone or tablet into the bathroom, and I'll show you a liar. In any case, waterproofing just makes solid sense.


    Any survival expert will tell you that where there's life, there's water. But as we at Pure Mobile know, where there's life, there's also tech.

  • A third party manufacturer compared the sizes of upcoming devices to an iPhone 4S case and an iPad 3 case

     


    We love a good rumor, and the big news on everyone's lips this week surrounded some leaked photos that may reveal the dimensions of the upcoming iPhone 5 and iPhone mini.


    MacRumors reported September 10th on pictures released by a third party iPhone and iPad case manufacturer that compare tentative cases for the new devices to an iPhone 4S case and iPad 3 case.


    “The cases were created by case manufacturers in anticipation of the upcoming models. Designs are based on leaked specs coming out of Foxconn factories,” says MacRumors.


    While the new iPhone 5 case is taller than the iPhone 4S, the case for the iPad mini is smaller than the current iPad 3 case

     


    If the specs are right, those who believe bigger is better will be happy to know that the new iPhone 5 will in fact be larger than the current iPhone 4S, though it'll just be taller, not wider, with a 4” diagonal screen.


    As for those who think less is more, the case designed for the new iPad Mini is smaller than the iPad 3 case shown in the image, but not significantly. The new device is rumored to have a 7.85” screen.


    The size comparison as outlined by MacRumors 

     


    As Gizmodo noted, “ if that iPad Mini shell is accurate, the realization that it's not a total dwarf next to the 10-inch iPad, kinda makes the idea of one all the more tantalizing.”


    For now, it's all just speculation, but we're likely to have at least part of the truth on September 12th, when Apple's expected to unveil the iPhone 5 at a press conference. However, we'll have to wait a little longer to see the new iPad Mini, which is expected to be unveiled at some point in October.

  • Apple, app developers and hacks alike have all been frustrated by the secret to improved battery life. Well, it looks like BattSaver might be one answer.


    BattSaver is a new jailbreak tweak by xVolks, a company of iPhone hackers. BattSaver could potentially up to double the battery life of an iPhone. BattSaver identifies features in the smartphone that are draining its battery life and suppresses them.


    BattSaver concentrates on iPhone radios, i.e. Wi-Fi and cellular connections. The jailbreak tweak manages power usage when iPhone radios are enabled and disabled. Theoretically, this gives the device an increase in battery life.


    BattSaver allows users to choose one of four saving strategies:


    • Normal mode: When the iPhone is “sleeping”, BattSaver disables all radio signals. The iPhone will still check for new email every 15 minutes.
    • Aggressive mode: If Wi-Fi is connected, BattSaver disables the data connection completely. The idea here is if the phone is already Wi-Fi connected, don’t waste battery power with a data connection in-waiting.
    • Ultimate mode: This mode completely disables all radio signals. It’s almost the same as a smartphone’s Airplane Mode.
    • Custom: Allows countless configurations for BattSaver - perfect for jailbreakers.


    The BattSaver jailbreak tweak is available for download in the Cydia Store for $2.99.

  • Google Earth 3D app


    Google has released the latest version of its Google Earth app with 3D imaging. You can download the app to the new iPad, iPad 2, iPod touch and iPhone 4S. The app is available in the iTunes store.


    As Peter Birch, Google Earth product manager, blogged, “With today’s release of Google Earth for iOS you can literally fly through breathtaking 3D city landscapes and images and follow virtual tours of places you’ve never been — all with a simple swipe of your fingertip.”


    Birch’s blog post highlighted the app’s Tour Guide feature that lets users browse through thumbnails to explore any city or landmark. Some of the photos are user generated.


    Birch writes that Google is adding new locations “as fast as we can.” The cities that are 3D-viewable right now are Boulder, Boston, Charlotte, Lawrence (KS), Long Beach (CA.), Los Angeles, Portland (OR), San Diego, Santa Cruz, Tampa, Tucson, and the San Francisco Bay Area. On the international scene, the Google Earth app will show you Rome in 3D.


    By the end of 2012, Google plans to have the 3D imaging available in metropolitan areas with a combined population of 300 million people or more.

  • Apple Jailbreak Released
    Posted on January 3, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    January 3, 2012


    There are those consumers who play by the rules and the status que. Then you have consumers who want enhance their current technology at any means and with total disregard to the rules. From unlocked cell phones to untethered jailbreaks, these tech savvy rebels will constantly push the envelope and expand the edge of innovation.


    Apple Jailbreak ReleasedSo, the technological consequences of this week’s announcement by iPhone DevTeam still remain to be seen on the mobile tech scene.  The team has finally released an updated version of a jailbreak tool (Redsn0) which will allow iPad3, iPod Touch 4G, and iPhone 4 the to jailbreak their devices without requiring the user to re-enable the tool each time the device is rebooted. Alas, the iPhone 4Sand iPad 2, are not yet compatible with this tool which is typical with the latest and greatest technology releases . But, all news points to the jailbreak tool being applicable to a number of the manufacturer’s media players, tablets and smartphone devices.  Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  The latest stylish top  brand bags, sleeves and cases innovative protection solutions allow you to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes with our stylish top.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Apple Jailbreak ReleasedAlso typical to jailbreak tools, there are some things to keep in mind. First, users need to have a compatible base band if they prefer to unlock the device with the ultrasn0w tool. Next, they must save the SHSH blobs if there is the possibility the user may want to downgrade again to version 5.0.1 when updates are released.   Discover the foremost online source for brand name data cables and mciro SD Memory Cards with the advanced designed engineered to work with the latest wireless and mobile devices.  This  Data Cable and Memory Card Collection combines style, quality, performance and value while giving you the ultimate in cable technology.


     


    There are indications that the iPhone Dev Team is diligently working to expand the un-tethered jailbreak tool to Apple’s latest tablet and smartphone releases. And, as this writer is not as technical as these “researchers,” she does wonder if any of these tools affect the iHome and other accessories or will result in greater carrier neutrality for customers as an “unlocked” device.

  • The smart phone industry as a whole is a unique one in that most often competitors are also partners. In the case of Samsung and Apple, on a commercial level they each have their own line of smart phones aimed at consumers. They also compete on technology levels and are currently in several litigations around patent infringement and other legal issues. It's amazing to see that despite all the issues between the two companies, they can continue to do business with each other.


    Samsung Quad-Core A6 Chip to be used in the Next Apple iPhone


    In addition to being competitors, Samsung and Apple are also partners on several levels. Much of the inner workings of an unlocked iPhone are components manufactured by the major mobile companies in the world including Samsung, LG, and others.


    A recent news release is speculating that the Samsung Quad-Core A6 Chip will be the processor of choice used in the next iPhone release scheduled for the summer of 2012. Apparently Apple is inquiring about the availability of the chip and the timeline in which they can secure them in preparation for the next version of their phone. This is perhaps another indication of how well Samsung is doing in the development of technology area of the industry. For their main competitor of the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II, Apple to decide to use Samsung as their main chip provider shows that they are a leader in the space.

    Samsung Quad-Core A6 Chip


    As the year round off and the data starts to come in terms of sales, it is believed that Apple will be Samsungs biggest overseas client accounting for over 8 billion in sales of its components including liquid crystal displays and memory chips. As a news release I'm sure Apple wishes this type information was not made public as it only boosts the Samsung brand and puts them more to the forefront in terms of being a serious competitor to Apple.

  • Success For Spotify In USA
    Posted on October 17, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    The music industry has been one of those areas where the introduction of the Internet posed a serious issue to how the entire industry works. Gone is the traditional way of distributing music and the problem becomes how do we sell music online in a way that is fair to everyone involved. For years websites have been popping up trying to figure out how to effectively do this.


    Success For Spotify In USA


    For the last few years Spotify has been building their business on the premise that free ad supported music model with unlocked iphone 4 is one that can be successful. In addition to free, users have the ability to pay for a premium service without any ads. The big challenge for Spotify has been how to effectively enter the US marketplace without disrupting the major record labels. In July of this year they officially launched in the US and the initial data has come in relating to their growth.


    An unconfirmed source suggests that Spotify now has over 250,000 clients in the US alone. Worldwide Spotify is reported to have over 2 million paid subscribers. If the reports are accurate, it suggests the Spotify will continue to grow and be a major player for music distribution and consumption here in the US.


    Much of their early success can be contributed to their recent partnership with Facebook. Opening up access to Facebook's 700 million+ users provides an ideal environment to push this type of service. This is another example of how the power of Facebook and be use to have a significant impact on their partners and an industry as a whole. We will continue to see similar partnerships; Spotify will continue its growth and most likely be the top subscription-based music service online. They also recently announced that their service is now being offered on the Boxee hardware device.


    PureMobile carries wide  range of unlocked cell phone  and cell phone accessories such as Bluetooth Headsets.
