Some users had already noticed, the U.S. Consumer Report has confirmed it: The new Apple iPad is the third generation on the fly very hot. The testers from Consumer Reports calculated maximum temperatures of up to 46.7 degrees Celsius. This is considerably more than the Apple iPad 2 Apple also claims that there is no error and move the temperatures in the covered area.
However, it can test the consumer report or the new Apple iPad 3 in an unfavorable light. It is not the first time that the consumer report – comparable with the donation goods test in this country – criticizes. After the launch of the Apple iPhone 4 had the testers out on the antenna problem of the Apple smartphone. While this was unusual at the time of the antenna design, the error on the Apple iPad 3 is not so easy to identify. There is no single reason for the high temperatures are not likely. Instead, several components may be involved.
The retinal display of the Apple iPad for example, requires a stronger backlight to work the quad-core graphics chip has to provide more and more of the already battery needs more energy. All this causes in the interior of the housing presumably for higher temperatures. In fairness, it must be said, however, that the measured 46.7 degrees Celsius occurred only when the game “Infinity Blade II,” a three-quarter hours running continuously. In addition, the Apple iPad 3 was connected during this time with the AC adapter.
Through their actions continuously growing profits and sales that leave each quarter, cash from Apple, which has now reached 100,000 million dollars, has been a widely used recently for use as a reflection of the excellent shape of the mark the block.
Today, the two p.m. Spanish time, Apple has called a press conference where they will discuss economic data sales and profits last quarter. By surprise, the company has revealed that provide information about what they want to do with your cash .
Speculation does not have to wait and from the logical distribution of dividends to shareholders to buy out the company, or creating some kind of foundation, anything is possible. Engadget will tell you that the highlight of today’s announcement by Apple.
According to sources close to Foxconn, one of the largest and most well known (although not always for the reasons we like) providers of Apple, the company responsible for final assembly of the iPhone and the iPad has started to add systems to X-ray inspection the assembly lines of its plants to improve their quality controls.
These systems have algorithms to inspect welds prepared and printed circuit more precisely and efficiently without disrupting the rhythm of the production line, a positive impact on the detection of errors and defects that might otherwise go unnoticed. Good news considering that the provisions of manufacture of the 2012 Apple to continue to rise.
Last summer the Chinese news agency Xinhua reported that Foxconn had plans to enter more than one million robotic machines in their factories, presumably to replace an unspecified amount of the 1.2 million workers currently employed. And speaking of the human factor, the company announced last month that have increased the wages of their workers up to 25%, probably as a response to recent media pressure .
The fourth generation of the iPhone coming in June on the market, announces Boy Genius Report. Supposedly the new Apple smartphone in the U.S. is already very soon after 7 June come on the market. This day is widely expected with the launch of the new iPhone by Steve Jobs at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference 2010th
Whether as a 4G iPhone, or iPhone HD, the iPhone will be the fourth generation to buy in a few weeks, at least in the U.S.. The American tech blog Boy Genius Report writes about an early launch in telecommunications group AT & T.
Just as the German Telekom in Germany, AT & T in the U.S. is the exclusive iPhone distributor. Allegedly several AT & T employees have confirmed a vacation. Such a ban imposed on AT & T holiday so far only when a new iPhone comes into the shop. (more…)
The use of a smartphone with the new Windows Mobile 7 Phone will be possible only with a valid Windows Live ID. Even with the early versions of the Google Android operating system, there was such pressure, which was then removed under pressure from concerned users and privacy advocates again.
Since Android Google Account 1.5 no longer necessary to use an Android phone.Even Apple’s iPhone at a less rigorous way, such as Microsoft reported tweakers.net Phone with Windows 7, as areamobile.de, citing a report by the Dutch website. Admittedly, the iPhone users have an iTunes account to use the iPhone for the first time to activate them. At a later stage, however, no more iTunes account is required.
With Windows Mobile 7 this seems to be otherwise well. The use of new Microsoft smartphones will be possible only with a valid Windows Live ID. This should emerge from a secret Microsoft document that tweakers.net present. Thus, a Windows Live ID is not only for the initial set up (to sync to the iPhone) is necessary, but also contacts or other services from Microsoft, such as the Windows phone access 7 Market Place.
In addition to seven cell phones a certificate installed on Windows, which is to prevent that can be installed unauthorized software on the Microsoft Smartphone.Moreover, Microsoft can thus always recognized by whom the Windows Mobile 7 Phone can be used. A similar procedure previously met with great criticism.Android users and data protectors protested against such a constraint in Google’s operating system. With success: Since Android 1.5 a Google account is needed anymore.
For all of you known the eternal debate about the unacceptability of Apple to make VoIP calls through 3G network from the iPhone. Many (including myself included) thought this would never come to light after Google’s rebuke as theVoice, but nothing is further from the truth.
With iCall can make calls to any number anywhere in the world via the 3G network. To get an idea, a five-minute call from Spain to Singapore has left me by 8 cents (about five U.S. cents), far less than it costs me a call within the same territory through Telefónica.
There are several settings of the program, one of which will pay you a monthly fee allowing us to call anynumber. But the most interesting is the charge per call, which will require an initial payment of 10 dollars (just over 7 euros) you spend on card, allowing us to use it for subsequent calls.
The program will save this amount in a counter that is updated with every call minus the spending we’ve done. We synchronize the program with Facebook to add his contact list and can also access the iPhone’s agenda since. We must be clear that to make the call, it is necessary to determine the country where is that phone number, so in the case of Spain will have to add the “0034″ ahead of the number. Thanks to Albert Sant by pointing to this program.
