Posted by Videos Gone Viral Wednesday, January 27, 2010 1 Comments


New York: For many people iPad a disappointment. Apple iPad was launched last night with great fanfare and applause. In fact there was more silence than applause following the launch of the great gadget that we should call a super gadget.

But this is one thing to hype things and then living up to the hype.

This is great ebook reader with multicolor and beautiful design and has a lot to beat Amazon’s Kindle that is devoid of such glittering effect.

But does it not fulfill the promise of being better than a smartphone and laptop. Steve Jobs had said that it was better than laptop and a smartphone, but with no flash it cannot the reach of smartphone in display.

The market was so much disappointed with the Apple ipad display that Apple share went in almost for freefall before regaining some lost ground later, but clearly showing people’s disappointment.

01/04/10- The rumors were confirmed when Apple set a release date for the iPad late night on January 2, 2010. An “Apple insider,” who wishes to remain anonymous, told us that they would hit the shelves in late February 2010. Details on the iSlate are still unknown however, until January 26th when Apple will hold a press conference revealing the touch screen tablet PC. But, we did get a couple of hints from the ex-president of Google China who claims to have received information from a “friend of a friend.”


    According to him, the iPad will look like a bigger version of an iPhone, with a 10.1 inch multi-touch screen and also an enhanced user interface. A better interface than the iPhone? Sounds either like a dream or a delusion. He also told us that the iSlate combines the functionality of a Net Book and Amazon’s Kindle. On top of that, it will have 3G internet capabilities, video-teleconferencing, a virtual keyboard, and e-reader and netbook features. It will also be capable of using iPhone apps, the jewel of Apple’s success. He told us that the iSlate will sell for just under $1,000 and that Apple will produce over ten million tablets in the first year.


    Another source revealed that the iSlate will have several capabilities similar to laptops such as a built in DVD-RW drive capable of playing and burning movies and videos. It will also have a USB input so that you may sync your music onto your iPod or your iTouch. Apple has also decided that they will have high-definition screens with one at 720p and another at 1080p for $100 more. It is also rumored that it will be able to connect to wifi internet. Although the latter is not confirmed, the former is a guarantee.


    So far we can conclude that the iSlate will most likely be a combination of several different technological devices including the iPhone, the MacBook, a Net Book, a PC, and a Kindle. What Apple is trying to do is to create the ultimate user friendly experience at an affordable price. Although none of these details have been confirmed by Apple, we can still be excited about the well-hyped press conference on January 26th. What do you expect to see in the iSlate? Let us know.






Apple Ditching Google for Bing?

Posted by Videos Gone Viral Thursday, January 21, 2010 0 Comments



Remember that search engine you shrugged off just a couple months back? Well now it could become a mainstay in your daily routine if Apple decides to ditch Google and bring in Bing as their default search engine.

BusinessWeek has reported that Apple is currently in talks with Microsoft regarding their search engine for the new iPhone. This news has come after competition between Apple and Google has risen over the past year or so, especially with Google introducing a whole new line of phones of their own such as the Nexus. If Apple does however decide to make the switch, Google will definitively lose boatloads of money as much of their income comes from ad revenues from iPhones. Apparently, these talks have been going on for weeks.

This rivalry first began when Google CEO Eric Schmidt vacated the Apple board and picked up Lala and Quattro Wireless. The release of Google Chrome, the Droid, and the iPhone killer "Nexus," may all have increased tensions between the technology giants. Isn't a little healthy competition fun?
