iPhone 5c With Pokemon Influence
Apple’s iPhone 5c has a vibrant choice of coloring, which makes it difficult to choose which sole phone you’d like to use in the line. Now, thanks to artist George Michael Brower, it might be an even harder choice with these Pokemon-inspired mockups. Totally rad artwork! You can head over to Brower’s site to download these wallpapers as stickers for free here.

Tokyo Man Already Lined Up for iPhone 5S

Twitter user @xxxprius is already lined up to wait for the iPhone 5S in Tokyo, even though the phone was literally just announced yesterday. His Twitter account has revealed him dealing with rain, reporters, and a bunch of other problems on this 10 9 day wait in front of the Ginza Apple Store. Good luck sir, and I hope you get the iPhone 5S you’ll be dreaming of.

‘Jobs' Reviewed By Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak

I felt bad for many people I know well who were portrayed wrongly in their interactions with Jobs and the company. The movie ends pretty much where the great Jobs finally found product success (the iPod) and changed so many of our lives. I’m grateful to Steve for his excellence in the i-era, and his contribution to my own life of enjoying great products, but this movie portrays him having had those skills in earlier times.

iPhone 6 Wrap-Around Screen Concept Is Gorgeous, But Would Probably Make You Drop Your Phone A Lot

Beautiful wrap-around display designs by Michael ShanksAli Rahmoun and Sebastian Scheer. Totally reminds us of the flexible OLED display Samsung showed off at CES back in January.

We can already envision all the cracked screens dropped by users while fumbling to read side-displayed notifications. Pretty, though!

As You Read This, Apple Is Hard At Work On The iWatch
In a further attempt to capitalize on the attention spans and disposable income of the human race, Apple is - according to tech consultant/former Apple employee Bruce Tagnozzini - working on a watch that “will fill a gaping hole in the Apple ecosystem.” He goes on to say “Like other breakthrough Apple products, its value will be underestimated at launch, then grow to have a profound impact on our lives and Apple’s fortunes”
Bloomburg reports that a team of 100 designers are currently developing the watch.
So, like, this better be some videochat watch shit and not just an Apple version of Nike’s FuelBand.
Also, if it does pretty much all the core stuff that we smartphones for, will we still need smartphones?

Enchiridion iPad Case

In the world of Adventure Time, the Enchiridion is a sacred handbook for heroes, filled with all kinds of useful info like how to harness the magical healing properties of cyclops tears and how to kiss princesses. It can also rip wormholes through the multiverse leading to the total annihilation of all existence, but that’s a whole other thing.

HarryDumitrescu made this Enchiridion iPad cover using fake leather, a Molotow pen, and clear finish. Check out the WIP pics here.

In Case You Haven’t Heard, Apple Announced A Buttload Of New Stuff Today

First there’s the new iPad mini which kind of seems like a silly idea, but people are excited nonetheless. It’s 23% thinner and 53% lighter than the current iPad with a 7.9” screen and super fast A5 chip. Altogether it cranks out 10 hours of battery life. It also requires a new hip-ly named “Lightning Connector” which means your old iPad and iPhone chargers won’t work on it. But it comes in white AND black which is pretty cool I guess.

Next up is the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. The 15-inch version was already released earlier this year, but the theme lately seems to be “smaller is better”. It has a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution that shoots 232 pixels-per-inch straight into your eye sockets. The 15” version 226, so yeah. It also weighs a full pound less than last year’s model and is 20% thinner at just 0.75-inches thick. The base model comes packed with a 2.5GHz i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash memory for $1,699, but you can upgrade it all the way up to a 768GB hard drive with a Core i7.

And last are the ultra shmexy new iMacs. This is the first iMac redesign in three years and they’re absurdly thin, which is probably a godsend for those who take their desktops to Starbucks. For serious, though, the thinness is really nice. Also, they have Intel’s Ivy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 processors. The 21.5-inch, 1080p model drops this November and will cost $1,299 for a 2.7GHz Core i5, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive. If you’re a Daddy McFatSacks you can dish out $1799 for the 27-inch, 2,560 x 1,400 model with the same memory and storage, but 2.9GHz Core i5. OH! And they both have this crazy new thing called Fusion Drive that combines 128GB of flash with 1TB or 3TB of regular storage. Kind of like Voltron, but not.

So, waddaya’ say, Apple Fanboys? Need to change your pants? Take out a loan for some new Apple gear? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Watch This Chick Explain Why She’s Waiting In Line For An iPhone 5

Not sure if she’s acting, or just depressing.

I’ll admit, I was once a bit of an Apple fanboy, but even I don’t understand paying so much money for a screen that’s just a wee bit bigger and a processor that’s just a wee bit faster. I can’t think of any time that I’ve tried doing something on my iPhone 4 and been like, “God! This is taking FOREVER!!!”

I was recently at a wedding reception where two good friends were showing off their iPhone 5’s. When I asked what the selling features were for them, all they could say was they liked the new design, bigger screen and the fact that it’s faster. Seems silly and excessive to me to drop hundreds of dollars on such minor details. Is it really worth it?

YouTube, SoundCloud, Skype, And Apple As Game Boy Carts

These custom carts by 3liter are pretty awesome, but it would have been a blajillion times more awesome if YouTube and Skype were Game Boy Camera carts. Just sayin’.

New iPhone App Allows Users to Create Temporary Phone Numbers

Ad Hoc Labs has developed a brand new iPhone app that allows users to create multiple temporary phone numbers that can be used to call/text others anonymously. The app is called “Burner,” which also is a street term used to describe prepaid phones or other lines that are used for drug deals, or to simply avoid some sort of surveillance.

Each number has limited use, but it does allow you to call or text like you normally would a regular phone. The app simply redirects the fake number to your real number and can be deleted any time you’d like. 

According to the site:

Need a phone number for a day, a week, a month or more? Create a Burner number for your iPhone in less than 30 seconds. Give out a number without fear of having your real phone number compromised. Publish your number to Twitter or Facebook and see what happens! Be in full control Turn off inbound SMS notifications or rings quickly and easily. Manage all your inbound calls, SMS messages, and voicemails in one place. Done with the number? It’s easy (and fun) to “burn” the number, taking it out of service and wiping it from your phone as if it never existed!

The app is being sold for $1.99 at the iTunes app store, and I’m sure it’s going to be abused as much as possible.

'Street Fighter x Tekken' Mobile Heads To iOS This Summer.

Capcom just announced that you’ll be able to take SFxT on the go when it hits iOS devices this summer. So far the only characters announced are Ryu and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, and Kazuya and Nina from Tekken.

The game will be compatible with iOS 5 and higher for iPhone 4 and 4S, iPod touch (4th Gen or later), iPad 2 and the New iPad.

I think I’ll hold out for the Vita version for my on-the-go fighting game needs, thank you very much.

Virgin Mobile’s $30 Unlimited Prepaid iPhone Plan Will Make Your Wallet VERY Happy.
That’s right, on June 29th Virgin Mobile will be offering iPhones with prepaid plans. You’ll have to buy the phone at full price since you’re not locked in with a contract, but the pre-paid plans are so cheap that you’ll be saving mad money long-term.
Via Gizmodo:

Even though you don’t get contract pricing on the phone itself—Virgin will be selling the 16GB iPhone 4S for $650 and the 8GB iPhone 4 for $550—it’s still an incredible deal that can save you buckets of cash: At least $500 over two years if you’re using Sprint, AT&T, or Verizon. Check out this handy chart produced by Cult of Mac. If you sign up for Virgin’s $40 per month plan you’ll pay only $1610 for two years compared to $2400 (AT&T and Verizon) and $2120 (Sprint).

You can also pay an extra $15 a month for tethering so you can turn your iPhone into a hotspot. You hear that? That’s the sound of every current iPhone user collectively dropping their current contracts.
What do you guys think? Will you guys be switching to Virgin Mobile? If you don’t already have an iPhone, is this deal good enough to make finally get one?
