Drones and GoPros have been responsible for some of the most amazing footage of extreme sports over the past few years. But Nicolas Vuignier has come up with a brilliantly simple way to use his iPhone to capture some truly remarkable footage of him skiing down a snow-covered mountain.
La « fusion » iOS et Mac OS se poursuit avec Lion Mountain (10.8) : Apple uniformise l’experience utilisateur.

One like son (inconnu au bataillon, 2 albums en 11 ans…) se fait un petit coup de pub en sortant un nouvel album de pop américaine efficace, en l’enregistrant uniquement sur iPhone… Le résultat est surprenant de qualité et de conformité aux standards du genre : gros son et interchangeabilité sonore oubliable…
Powerpop band « One Like Son » has done something special. Using accessories like Peavey’s AmpKit LiNK (TUAW review) and the GuitarJack from Sonoma Wireworks, they managed to produce an entire studio-quality album… on an iPhone.
Daniel Codella of Sonoma Wireworks states that « One Like Son have really set the bar for what can be done with an inexpensive mobile recording setup. Bravo! » The band compares the experience to creating their first album, « Love Songs for the Apathetic, » on a 4-track cassette recorder. Stephen Poff of the band said, « It was a pretty top of the line at the time, but it was tedious and of course there were only 4 tracks to work with. Now I’m recording up to 24 tracks… and it’s on my iPhone! »
the understatement: Android Orphans: Visualizing a Sad History of Support Android Orphans: Visualizing a Sad History of Support The announcement that Nexus One users won’t be getting upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich led some to justifiably question Google’s support of their devices. I look at it a little differently: Nexus One owners are lucky. I’ve been researching the history of OS updates on Android phones and Nexus One users have fared much, much better than most Android buyers. I went back and found every Android phone shipped in the United States1 up through the middle of last year. I then tracked down every update that was released for each device – be it a major OS upgrade or a minor support patch – as well as prices and release & discontinuation dates. I compared these dates & versions to the currently shipping version of Android at the time. The resulting picture isn’t pretty – well, not for Android users:

L’iPhone pour les aveugles… Ok le retina display a moins d’interêt mais la platerforme semble impressionante… Seule ombre au tableau : iTunes qui apparemment est peu accessible.
My First Week with the iPhone by Austin Seraphin
Last Wednesday, my life changed forever. I got an iPhone. I consider it the greatest thing to happen to the blind for a very long time, possibly ever. It offers unparalleled access to properly made applications, and changed my life in twenty-four hours. The iPhone only has one thing holding it back: iTunes. Nevertheless, I have fallen in love.When I first heard that Apple would release a touchpad cell phone with VoiceOver, the screen reading software used by Macs, I scoffed. The blind have gotten so used to lofty promises of a dream platform, only to receive some slapped together set of software with a minimally functional screen reader running on overpriced hardware which can’t take a beating. I figured that Apple just wanted to get some good PR – after all, how could a blind person even use a touchpad? I laughed at the trendies, both sighted and blind, buying iPhones and enthusing about them. That changed when another blind friend with similar opinions also founded in long years of experience bought one, and just went nuts about how much she loved it, especially the touchpad interface. I could hardly believe it, and figured that I should reevaluate things.
