iPhone 5S and iOS 7 released!

Cross platform benchmark puts iPhone 5S right on the top! The performance obtained through exploiting both software and hardware. Memory subsystem takes care that the hardware performance is not obstructed by the software. A7 performance is stunningly good with good clock speed. Hardware additions, finger print sensor to unlock and security and 64bit architecture is stealing the show!

iOS7 brings in rich set of API and frameworks, and amazing features. Every app in the store will need to transition to iOS7, from the fear of being left behind!

iPhone 5S and iOS 7 complements each other beautifully!

installous outdated version error

As usual, I tried using installous was shocked to find an error that said “outdated version” and the app quit! Following events lead me to know that the hackulo.us servers closed down! Hackulo.us now says:

Goodnight, sweet prince.
We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We’re incredibly thankful for the support we’ve had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence.

With lots of love,
Hackulous Team

iPhone 5 & iPad mini, Wi-Fi problems!

The Wi-Fi connections kept dropping until now…

Was waiting for this update and finally it’s available this morning. iOS 6.0.2! The installation screen says “fixes a bug that could impact Wi-Fi.”

All I did was to go Settings > General > and Software Update. Hope this solves Wi-Fi issues, but to me the problem seem to persist!

Steve Jobs resigns as Apple CEO

Resignation Letter:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Apple iAd Producer, an Adobe Flash killer?

With iAd Producer released, Apple’s getting into mobile ads to better already existing Quattro and Google’s AdMob. Apple promises high quality, valuable experiences thats interesting, and above all non-intrusive.

Steve Jobs described that the iAds to be using HTML5 standards, instead of proprietary binaries like Adobe’s Flash and Microsoft’s Silverlight.

This provides advanced JavaScript editing to create interactivity with all the standard development features. iAd Producer incorporates JavaScript debugging tools similar to Xcode, validates it to make it ready for prime time before submission to the iAd Network.

Comes with variety of pre-built user interface components and page layout templates that enable developers to build and navigate HTML5 iAd presentations. This should make it easier for ad designers and the transition from Flash is encouraged.
