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.
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 theGinza Apple Store. Good luck sir, and I hope you get the iPhone 5S you’ll be dreaming of.
Although it doesn’t function as an actual turntable, this iPhone/iPod speaker dock from SKU Style is impressive nonetheless. Sculpted in resin and painted white to give it a porcelain look, this dock classy and edgy at the same time without taking itself too seriously. Scoop it from Etsy for $400.
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?
The amount of Pokémon news that comes out every week honestly blows my mind.
Today saw the release of the official Pokémon TV app for iTunes and Google Play. Smartphone users can now download the video app to watch different episodes of the Pokémon animated television show. The app rotates 50 different episodes — get this — every single week.
The app is separated by region, which is really awesome, and every episode you can view is free to watch. The app will also be hosting full-length movies, starting with Pokémon the Movie: Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice from February 15-18. The app will also be debuting the animated short “Meloetta’s Moonlight Serenade" on February 15.
It is rare to find really amazing art that is meant to be a functional piece of daily technology. These iPhone cases from Twig Case Co. are just that.
The cases are indeed made from paper. Well, technically it is called Richlite. Made from trees from Sweden and Brazil. These are the first cases to use Richlite and it is extremely strong. It is also extremely efficient in production.
For those objecting due to forestry or unsustainability concerns, rest easy. Each case is FSC and Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning that the process is utilizing the responsible management of our planet’s wooden resources. The FSC is a non-profit organization that was created to stop the irresponsible foresting of the rainforest and other endangered areas.
For those looking for a unique and high-quality iPhone case, the choice is clear. These Twig Co. cases well designed and will last you beyond the life of the iPhone.
Get ready to break your iPhones. VVVVVV, and recent iOS hit, Superhexagon creator Terry Cavanagh revealed on Twitter that he is working on an iOS version of the game.
For those who don’t know, VVVVVV (originally released on PC, Mac and Nintendo 3DS) is a fantastic entry into the masochistic platformer genre which also includes I Want to Be The Guy and Super Meat Boy. These games take pride in killing the player as many times as possible and present an enormous challenge to anyone playing them. VVVVVV has a unique gameplay mechanic that allows players to bounce from the floor to the ceiling by changing the gravity. This creates thrilling moments of hope when falling upward through a spiked cavern only to be killed right at the end. At that point, it’s time to try again.
VVVVVV presents this die-reload-die-reload-succeed style gameplay in gorgeous pixel design and a killer soundtrack. I’d argue that the soundtrack, created by chiptune artist SoulEye, is one of the best that gaming has to offer in terms of chiptunes.
However, Terry Cavanagh claims that the game works best with buttons and that he hopes to make it work for iOS. However, he claims that the game will be released "not for AGES"
For now, we can load up the soundtrack on our iPhones and play that while imagining the many spiked deaths that await us.
I usually hate it when a franchise is whored out and merch is made left and right. But with one of my favorite things of all time, Neon Genesis: Evangelion, I can’t get enough of it. Stussy have collaborated with Gainax to create these classy iPhone 5 cases. Having the Stussy logo in Rei Blue (which should be an official Pantone color) was a great move.
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?
Super Hexagon is the trippy, hectic, sadisticly difficult yet hypnotically fun iOS app from Terry Cavanagh. It’s a puzzle game with a pretty simple premise: don’t get hit by stuff, but it gets real hard real quick. And don’t even get us started on the awesome chiptunes by Chipzel.
Peep the trailer below.
Super Hexagon is currently available in the App Store for 66% off (that’s just 99 cents, yo!) and you can play the flash version, Hexagon, for free right here. Terry also created the equally difficult platformer VVVVVVwhich is totally worth checking out.
