New Iphone 4G…Lost and Found!!

Posted in Accessory, Apple, Design with tags , , , , on April 20, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

So the big tech rumour of the day is the discovery of the new IPHONE 4G in a bar somewhere in California. The good peeps at Gizmodo got the low down…here it is!

Apparently, an Apple Software Engineer, Gray Powell had lost the new iPhone he was testing which was disguised as a iPhone 3GS at a local bar up in Redwood City, CA. Now it’s in the hands of the folks over at Gizmodo. It probably was intentional since Apple did not take any action or trip off the fact that they posted tons of photos of it on their website.

Looks good, has similarities with the iPad when it comes to the trim area. Good thing I held off on the 3GS, once this comes out, perfect timing for an upgrade.

What’s new

• Front-facing video chat camera
• Improved regular back-camera (the lens is quite noticeably larger than the iPhone 3GS)
• Camera flash
• Micro-SIM instead of standard SIM (like the iPad)
• Improved display. It’s unclear if it’s the 960×640 display thrown around before—it certainly looks like it, with the “Connect to iTunes” screen displaying much higher resolution than on a 3GS.
• What looks to be a secondary mic for noise cancellation, at the top, next to the headphone jack
• Split buttons for volume
• Power, mute, and volume buttons are all metallic

What’s changed

• The back is entirely flat, made of either glass (more likely) or ceramic or shiny plastic in order for the cell signal to poke through. Tapping on the back makes a more hollow and higher pitched sound compared to tapping on the glass on the front/screen, but that could just be the orientation of components inside making for a different sound
• An aluminum border going completely around the outside
• Slightly smaller screen than the 3GS (but seemingly higher resolution)
• Everything is more squared off
• 3 grams heavier
• 16% Larger battery
• Internals components are shrunken, miniaturized and reduced to make room for the larger battery

So now I have to buy an Ipad and a new Iphone, I am  taking donations…lol!!!

Let the Accessory Games Begin! – Temple Bags IPAD CASE

Posted in Accessory, Apple with tags , , , , , on April 1, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

With the incredibly anticipated IPAD (wi-fi version) dropping this Saturday, the million and one accessories that I imagine will be developed have begun to roll out. This case by Temple Bags does not do too much for me aesthetically , but its interesting nonetheless.

Taking full advantage of the release of Apple’s iPad, luggage specialists Temple Bags have just launched this case, which has been custom designed to house your new iPad. Available in either leather or canvas, the bag features a padded shoulder strap, internal pocket and two stand options which allow one to view the iPad vertically or horizontally. The bags are available today from Temple Bags’ online store.

I am just mad I have to wait another 3 weeks till the Ipad 3G drops….The Apple Stores will be wild this weekend!!

Mike Vallely Iphone App

Posted in Apple, Skateboarding, YouTube Classics with tags , , on March 17, 2010 by mattyfresh697400


Mike Vallely never stops and his new iphone/ipod touch app is no exception.  The Mike V “Do or Die” iphone app is perfect for skaters (and former skaters) to get their shred on when they just cant get grab their deck and roll , like at work for instance (LOL)

Now I am a bit biased when it comes to Mike V and anything branded with his name, but this app is the real deal. I have tried multiple skate apps for my touch and this is the best and most realistic I have seen to date. Roll over to the Mike Vallely dedicated site for the app for more info or simply hit Apple and dload .

Lets be honest who deserves an app more than Mike Vallely!

Check out the trailer for the app…

In other Mike V news , it seems like the good folks over at Powell took my suggestion (and I am sure thousands of others) and chose to go with the Black colorway on the Mike Vallely Elephant Re-issue deck.  Yes I will be grabbing this deck for the collection and yes it will be my 5th colorway for this model.

It’s a classic so cop it!

Incase 2010 Spring Collection

Incase keeps it gully!

Ok let me translate that so when my mother reads this, she will understand what I am talking about.

Laptop accessory powerhouse Incase continues to make products that are both super functional and design savvy..better?…I thought so.

Case in point (pardon the pun..I just had to) The  2010 Canvas Coated spring collection constructed of heavy-duty cotton canvas finished with a weather resistant coating. Each product looks sleek and futuristic and will certainly make other accessory -heads jealous and or just plain curious. I know they got me. The good peeps at Hypebeast do a better job of the detailed product here it goes:

Showcasing clean lines and discreet features, the Shoulder Bag and Vertical Sling are perfect for those who favor shoulder carrying styles. Each features a reinforced notebook compartment with quilted interior lining that fits up to a 15” MacBook Pro, secure Velcro closures for easy access to interior compartments, an exterior iPhone slip pocket with plush faux-fur lining and an adjustable shoulder strap that can be worn cross-body or on the shoulder. The collection also includes a Coated Canvas Backpack and 13” and 15” notebook Sleeves.
