LEAKED – iPod touch With Camera

Apple loves to keep information about their upcoming devices or products a secret. The highly secretive environment which Apple maintains appears to be crumbling. Recently, we had some iPhone 4G leaks and now we have an iPod touch leak.

The same Vietnamese site which gave us a possible sneak peek at iPhone 4G is back with a new device which seems to be an iPod touch prototype. This iPod touch prototype has a 2 Megapixel camera and 64GB of memory. This thing sure does look like an iPod touch and an iPod touch with a camera was bound to come.

StanChart Employees Switch to iPhone

Standard Chartered is now giving its employees an option to choose between Blackberry and iPhone.

The bank earlier gave all its employees a Blackberry, but now they do have a choice to make. This move would make a lot of bankers Apple customers and gives the iPhone a larger market share. “It’s a group-wide initiative involving wholesale and consumer banks globally” said a spokeswoman for Standard Chartered.

Many other banks globally such as HSBC and Morgan Stanley have also repeatedly resisted Blackberry. With Unified Mailbox coming to iPhone with iPhone OS 4.0, it would definitely attract a lot of users and force some to make the switch.

Well if this trend catches up on an exponential rate and spreads across other sectors, Apple would be getting what it is aiming at – capturing the RIM market.

Whatever Happened to Did you Mean

Google’s revamped interface was applauded by many but left some disappointed. Google changed many new features including the Google Logo, brought in a new sidebar, new buttons and even a new search bar.

A small yet powerful new addition was a changed “Did you Mean”. Did you Mean was Google’s famous spelling corrector. Whenever someone typed in something such as “Stev Jobs”, it would result in a message – Did you Mean – Steve Jobs.

With Google now updated, this feature stands updated too. Now two messages appear – Showing results for Steve Jobs and Search instead for Stev Jobs. By default, Google would show results for the correct one, but if the users are still sure about the search query, they need to click on “Search instead for.”

Why Apple is Successful in Selling Products?

Apple Inc, is a company that loves to brag about numbers and sure they should. Their numbers being so very gigantic. Steve Jobs always addresses the crowd by saying – “Thanks for coming today. We have some updates for you”.

The updates which would follow would be some huge number of iPad’s sold or the freaking number of Apps sold or something.

So how does Apple manage to sell these products in such overwhelming numbers? Surely, they make some great products and very innovative ones but one small reason is the way they market it.

Android on iPod Touch

We’ve seen hackers porting Google’s Mobile OS, Android to iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G. The same guys are back to work and wanna make Android run on iPod touches.

There isn’t any official date yet, but it is in the making. A blog post mentions that the hacker has been successful in porting Android on a first-gen iPod Touch but things such as WLAN, multitouch drivers and sound need some extra attention.

Anyways, anytime soon we could be hearing the announcement and let’s hope that this wiz-kid is able to port it on an iPad.

Till date, Tweetie was the reigning champion and was the best available Twitter client for the iPhone and iPod touch. Tweetie was developed by atebits and was used by millions. Due to its superb functionality, extraordinary features and elegant looks, it was acquired by Twitter itself.

Enough said about Tweetie. It seems that even the official Twitter App is going to have some competition with Osfoora, a new Twitter client for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
