Apple releases iTunes 11.1.4

Back up before this update especially if you are using Win 7 64 bit. Apple discussions very active with all kinds of issues on doing auto update. Good solution posted there though.

Cook promises 'great things' at China Mobile launch

“We have great things we are working on but we want to keep them secret. That way you will be so much happier when you see it.”

Or, you could throw out vague, puffy statements like that so when these “great things” are announced we are all sorely disappointed.  The Apple hype machine never ceases to amaze me.

Apple patent reveals secure air payment system

I can see it now, as if it was a blockbuster sci-fi movie… We’re walking around town, and as soon as we walk close to a hacker, not only is all of our info downloaded from our phone, but also our entire bank account is emptied. And soon people will not only be avoiding Targets due to hacking, they’ll have to avoid walking past ordinary strangers on the street… and anyone else that you can’t trust.

Welcome, New iPad, iPhone & iPod Owners!

Hah, what fun the podcasts were! They were a challenge with the distances involved (UK-CA) - even when Jeremy was in Paris for the Apple Expo. You’d think being so near we’d manage a glitch free recording but road works outside the hotel put paid to that!

Thanks for your continued support.

Welcome, New iPad, iPhone & iPod Owners!

I remember the early days of iLounge, when it was actually called “iPodLounge.”  Then Apple started stamping out everything that wasn’t theirs with the word “iPod” in the title.  Back in those days, a reader could comment directly at the end of a published review and ask questions of the reviewer or add his or her own two cents, etc.  Unfortunately, this led to a lot of suspected shilling on the part of some manufacturers so that now review comments are restricted to the Forum.  Not nearly as much fun.  And then there were the occasional iPodLounge podcasts by Jeremy and Bob…

Congrats to iLounge for doing such a good job over the years, especially as the number of Apple related products has grown exponentially over that time.  I still never buy anything Apple without first consulting this website.

Mophie debuts Powerstation XL battery pack

I bought a Mophie Powerstation XL.
I’m just able to charge my iPhone 5s 4 times with a full charge or half charge of my iPad 4.
On the back of the battery, i read “Eu 5900 mAh” instead 12000 mAh.
Is it Normal?

Beyoncé releases new 'visual album' on iTunes

If only I were a Beyoncé fan. NB the “visual album” is a cool concept, but it isn’t enough to make me a fan.

Apple and Danish company collaborate on hearing aid

Is that $3,000 per aid, or $3,000 for a pair?

Big difference!

Plus, I want to see an Apple branded one—perhaps a special accessibility accessory with an iPhone or iPad!  grin

Apps: Assassin's Creed Pirates, Doctor Who: Legacy, Double Dragon Trilogy + Foursquare 7.0

In the Double Dragon Trilogy, you are getting emulations of the actual coin-operated arcade games, not the home console versions.  The NES Double Dragon III was only loosely based on the arcade version.  But beyond that, yeah, they are typical 8-bit or 16-bit, although a bit more advanced than the home consoles, since the arcade machines were more powerful than the consoles at the time.

Honda announces iPhone-powered car touchscreen

You obviously don’t understand the concept of what “iOS in the Car” is. It’s a technology that overlays iOS functionality onto the cars touch-screen operating system via Bluetooth and / or WiFi. This idea that somehow you are going to have problems related to iOS and that it is somehow going to effect your car is foolish. And even if there was a problem, you can always revert back to the OS that the manufacturer has installed onto the touch-screen.

Also, Siri Eyes Free is a completely different tech then iOS in The Car and is mostly a backend system that allows you to use Siri via Bluetooth (with the added capability or really de-capability of turning off your screen while your driving in your car).

Honda announces iPhone-powered car touchscreen

These OEM implementations of iOS functionality seem very risky to me—too many times an iOS version change disrupts functionality either because Apple changed the rules and the OEM didn’t follow, or the OEM didn’t implement the design rules correctly and a little version bump brings out the incompatibility.

It’s one thing to have your clock radio affected by an iOS update, but quite another to have your car’s use of iOS shut down, not to mention the long-term compatibility that would be needed for many years of use of the car.

Unless OEMs and Apple can demonstrate better long-term compatibility, and simple ways for consumers to update the firmware of their car audio sytems, I’ll pass ...

FCC to propose cellphone use above 10,000 feet

The one place left on the planet where you could be sure of not having some loudmouth jabbering on for hours on their phone - lets hope they install sound proof phone booths to prevent air rage!!!

FCC to propose cellphone use above 10,000 feet

I have a friend who can talk your ear off. I love her dearly, but she just can’t shut up. I usually don’t travel with her and wouldn’t wish her on ANYONE that is trapped with her and her cellphone on an airplane. She would never run out of people to talk to. *shudder*

Yahoo Screen, PBS channels added to Apple TV

I’m glad Apple is doing more with their TV. I updated my Apple TV this afternoon and these news channels don’t quite seem to work yet, especially PBS.
