An Update On Screen Protection For The Third-Generation iPad

If you want anti-glare and anti-fingerprint coverage, then I think image quality will always suffer somewhat. But for me, the reason I insist on screen film is for screen protection—because a scratch on a glass display is permanent! You will be profoundly irritated by a central screen scratch—I Ifound that out the hard way with my iPhone. But I don’t want to sacrifice image quality too much, so the clear screen films are quite nice, and should get more frequent mention from the tech crowd.

Have a clear film from Speck on my ipad2 that works great but even better than that….the Verizon store in my neighborhood has Incipio clear screen protectors on their display table New iPads and the image quality is amazing. I would never have known a film was even on except for the cutout around the front sided camera.

The New iPhone: Size, Screen + New Connector (Plus iPod touch)

I really hope the dock connector stays the same! My main reason for staying with apple devices is that all of my iPods, my iPhone, and my iPad can all use the same accessories.  I’m not ready to have to update everything in order to have 1 new device.

I think that Apple might be just using this redesigned iPhone 4/4S shape to test the internals of the next iPhone, which will not actually look anything like that.

He are some good reason
- use existing components and processes as much as possible to lower cost

- leave as much time as possible to design and ensure sufficient supply for a new gen casing

- prevent last years case leaks of the actual product

They can increase width also keeping the same resolution. That will reduce pixel density from 325ppi to 300.

I’d be very dissapointed if the dock connector was changed. It would generate huge amounts of e-waste! I agree with Andrew#8, Aaron#9 and Roger#10. I’d sure love to see a universal dock connector rather than all the proprietary shapes, it’s such a waste!

It will be silly of them to change the dock connector. It’s not going to be as “universal” as they think it would be. The predicted new dock connector will then make most of us toss away our iPhone 4 docks or the Apple universal docks, and all the rest of the docks.

@Andrew#8:  Surely you have forgotten about all the apps and music you purchased?  If you have none of that then switching is cheap.

Apple could switch the dock connector to be micro-USB like every other device on the planet, and as mandated by law in some countries.  There is a standard (MHL) that allows it to be used for audio and video in addition to USB, but taking such a route would prevent Apple from charging licensing fees for the connector.

More disappointed about the change in dock. How many electronics now come with an iPod dock and now they’re gonna go and change it? All these stylish stereo systems, blu ray players, radios etc, with iPod docks will now all have to sell new accessories so you can still plug your iPhone/iPod in. Hopefully it can be an easy fix like a 16 pin to 30 pin converter but I doubt it.

They’d have rocks in their head to change the Dock Connector, that would make all my equipment redundant (clock radio, docking station etc) and would mean I didn’t have to stick with Apple. I may as well buy a Samsung which is a better phone if all my equipment becomes redundant - surely Apple is not this dumb!!!

By only heightening the display and leaving the width alone, apps run fine without needing to be resized. All they need to do is put a .25-inch black bar above and below the running “old-style” apps, and they function exactly as they do on any other iPhone, just with a small border above and below, while maintaining the same resolution. Way easier than if they kept the SAME aspect ratio and increased the screen size.

OS X Lion: Serious Wi-Fi Disconnect Problems for Macs, And Solutions?

Hello guys, I’m experimenting this problem for some months, I tried the last solution by apple but the wifi continues dropping down. I don’t know if it can help, but the first wifi failure appeared after some changing of permissions (in particular after activating root user). I have deactivated it, but wifi problems are still there. I made some capture with Wireshark and noticed that every time connection fall the last packet is an ICMPv6 (Multicast Listener Report) from :: to ff02::16, can this give some additional informations or help anybody?

CocoaTouch already supports automatic resizing of the user interface, as already mentioned by Nagromme. It’s interesting to note that Mac OS X Lion introduced a more advanced system for resizing user interfaces, called “Auto Layout”. Maybe this will be coming in iOS 6.

However, games are generally not written using CocoaTouch, so they wouldn’t benefit from this. However, it wouldn’t be hard for Apple to add a new bit of metadata for developers to include with their apps that specifies if the new larger screen resolution is supported. Older unmodified apps will then be run letterboxed, which would be fine.

Apple WILL change something (aspect ratio or something) that fragments the iPhone platform. Eventually. They have before: performance for instance. Otherwise nothing ever changes.

The question is whether a given fragmentation is worth it. I think this one is, and I hope it’s true. iOS developers will then have 3 screen formats to deal with, and the likelihood that all 3 will last for years—still much better than the Android chaos.

And remember that iOS already has the ability to automatically adjust the height of running apps—and many apps take advantage of that already. You see it when on a call, and the green bar “fragments” the screen into a shorter shape. For many apps, the top/bottom UI remain unchanged while the center list or view scales. I bet many current apps will need little or no work to do the same thing for a taller view. Others—like old-shape games—will simply run with black bars, and look no worse than they do now.

And I’ll get another row of icons in each folder smile

(P.S. iLounge comments aren’t functional in Safari?)

There is only one explanation that fits the case, the longer display by 10mm roughly adds one row and here is what Apple may do with that and iOS6

They will add a persistent dock icons row that will be always shown and regular apps will not expand to fill the screen but rather running normally and the dock will be visible in the bottom (think OSX dock).

Now developers can either keep their apps as they are or update to make them full-screen exactly the same concept found on desktop OSX

This guarantees the longer display without breaking current apps

Makes sense. Current apps will have black bars on the top on bottom portions of the screen making for a somewhat less jarring venture to the new screen size. Apps will have to be written for 2 different sizes however which developers will no doubt groan about.

The New iPhone: Size, Screen + New Connector (Plus iPod touch)

Agreed, Apple will never change the aspect ratio, because all Apps have do be redesigned then.
And i am still not sure, if Apple will go to 4”, because 3,5” is the perfect size for one-handed use

Ah yeah, and the new iPhone looks preety ugly to me.

The New iPhone: Size, Screen + New Connector (Plus iPod touch)

Yeah right.  No way Apple changes its aspect ratio.  I call foul.

OS X Lion: Serious Wi-Fi Disconnect Problems for Macs, And Solutions?

Has anyone tried installing windows 7 with bootcamp and confirmed same thing doesn´t happens with same atheros adapter?
I did that today as a last resource as i´ve tried everything above but the drivers thing as i don´t have snow leopard files required, however i haven´t had the chance to test out if that made any difference, it is a brand new imac 21.5 2011

The first option, deleting com.apple.aif.plist, worked for me like a charm.

Try unplugging your airport (express), wait 30 seconds then plug it back in.  Cured my dropoffs!

An Update On Screen Protection For The Third-Generation iPad

The silence just to show it’s the biggest scam in the history of scams, most use film developed by 2-3 big manufacturers eg. 3M, they have no answer since no new ultra-clear films are developed, no big film manufacturer will R&D just for i-Screens so we may be waiting for a while, and truth be told, you don’t NEED a ‘screen-protector’, 9/10 times it just detracts the user experience, once the screen is on I don’t notice finger-prints and anti-glare? no thanks, I don’t want to go back to the 80’s monitors with desaturated blacks and fuzzy graphics, rant over wink

Mac OS Leopard can't format a USB hard disk? Seriously?

God bless you. Struggled with this for 48 hours and your solution worked in 5 minutes. Thanks
