So what is iCloud anyway?

Before I get started, Your probably wondering what the hell am I trying to describe in the picture above.

The picture above shows a picture being taken on an iPhone device. Immediately (if enabled) iCloud will upload it to your iCloud account. Then it will sync with your iCloud enabled device. Not only is this pictures, iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, calendars, documents, and more.

This is really easy to enable!

The Program installed on the computer,

In this image it shows I have used no GB.

NOTE: iCloud gives you an amount of 5GB (you can buy more storage)

I don’t use outlook but you can sync Mail,Contacts,Calenders and Tasks.

If you don’t have outlook you can only sync photos and and bookmarks.

NOTE: Mac users can use the “mail” application

The apps you use every day are ready for iCloud.

When you update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iOS 5, your favorite Apple apps become seamlessly integrated with iCloud. Just like that. So all your content and information is available and up to date, no matter which device you’re using.

Apple INC. Takes in more money than the government

According to the  U.S. Treasury Deptment, the U.S. Government had a cash balance Wednesday of $73.8 billion, it’s less than what Steve Jobs has lying around. Apple had a big $76.2 billion in cash on Wednsday. Unlike the U.S. government, Apple rolls in more money than it spends.

iPod sales sinking fast

Apple may be setting record with their iPhone and iPad products, but the ipod is bringing in bad results. They sold a mere 7.5 million ipods last quarter. Unit sales have dropped 20%.

Why is this that the ipod is dropping down in sales? im a happy ipod owner and im sure a lot of you are. So, why the sudden decrease? There could be several reasons why.

Firstly, because they have either none or little moving parts in them,  they are getting broken less and so are keeping for longer, so people wont buy a new iPod until it breaks. Also, a lot of people allready own a smartphone of some sort and all their music is on there, so there is no need for a seperate music device like an ipod. It could also be the cost of them. A 2gb shuffle costs around £40 but if you want more memory, you may have to pay up to £130 or even more. if you want an ipod touch with a decent memory capacity, youre looking at about £250+. thats almost iphone teritory.

Its not like nobody wants one, they own almost 70% of the mp3 market. Its more down to apple being very good at what they make. we could see this change when iCloud is released where you can wirelessly push music to other devices, but right now, the iPod line is going to not bring much profit to the business.

iPhone and iPad sales records

Apple have recently sold  20.3 million iPhones over the quarter and 9.25 million iPads. This is a massive increase in their last quarter sales. Also, their line of computers have had a large increase of sales too. This means more people are switching to apple. It just seems like their clean and simplistic looks but great operating systems and hardware just win people over. i am one of them and have owned countless apple products too.

Because of this, it helped apple overtake the giants of the smartphone market Nokia and Samsung to be the largest seller of smartphones. This is great to say that they really only have 1 line of phones out there, the iPhone, unlike the others who have countless models of smartphones and tablets.

This isnt the same all over the world as in some places, android phones are being sold faster than iOS devices, but this is down to more decives using many android opperating systems, or with a skin (like HTC sense) being put over it. But this is a great accomplishment by apple.

iPad Facebook app in the iPhone app?

There has been a Facebook app on the iPhone now for a long time and it is very successful. There is really only one good app for it unlike the countless twitter clients and so forth. We all knew that an iPad app will be in the pipelines soon, but there has been coding found in the application that links to an iPad application.

Does this mean that the iPad app will be coming sooner rather than later? I hope so!

Apple’s Earning Are Doubled!

Apple zoomed through growing competition from smartphones and tablets running on Google Inc.’s Android operating system, as the company more than doubled its quarterly earnings and surging revenues on its strong sales of its iPhone and iPad.

Apple’s quarterly profit rose to $7.31 billion for its third quarter, up from $3.25 billion a year earlier. Revenue soared 82% to $28.57 billion. Gross margins went up to 41.7% from 39.1% a year ago.

The results fueled with the stock up 4.8% to $395.34, after ending in 4 p.m. trading at $376.85.

Damn It I knew I should have bought stock 🙂

Thanks to MacRumors.com they have some graphs to explain.

Assistive Touch – iOS 5 Beta 3

I don’t know if you know but recently Apple released some of the things in iOS 5.

I’m just going to focus on one of the things released the 11th of July.

“Assistive touch”

When a designated corner is touched on the iPad

Assistive Touch Hot Key

A menu comes up that controls the whole device

Device Control Menu

So… I want my device to rotate from landscape to portrait…

Switched from "Left" to "Portrait"

This is just 1 of the things assistive touch can do for you!

Lets just say if your iPad is broken and the volume button wont work that you can change the volume from the screen 🙂
