To start of the day, all the Apple fans who have been hoping to get a Mac tablet can now build one themselves.
The iTab was constructed by fusing together a Macbook with an Intuos Tablet—Wacom’s mid-level tablet offering—and a repurposed LCD screen. Check out his full blog at Introducing iTab [weistudio].
iLounge, a rather accurate predictive blog, has posted their artist rendition of the 5th generation iPod
Nano-with a built in camera. The iPod would be held sideways just like any other camera. We can hope that it’s a little more than 2 mega pixel.
For the developers out there, Alex Cone, CEO of CodeFab Evolution will be hosting an iPhone Boot Camp Programming Class at the “iPhone Mansion”. The class will run from June 6-8 and offer 24 total hours of instruction from 10am to 6pm each day (classes start a little later on the 8th to make way for Apple’s introductory keynote). Mentioned topics will start with the basics of iPhone coding, then go into advanced techniques, including sample code and exercises. Along with that, lunches, refreshments, and drinks will be provided, and the location is a 10-minute drive from the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco where WWDC will take place. Each night there will be an iPhone Nights @ the Mansion event that is open to 25 public seats at $10 a head. Each of these events will feature key speakers like App Store staff and iPhone app investors.The iPhone Boot Camp San Francisco daily classes have only 15 seats. Early bird pricing (before May 30) is $1,499.00, while regular price up to the day the classes start is $1,699.00. Students with a valid ID and school e-mail address can grab tickets for $1,299.00.
Along with that, a leaked ad as given a “doesn’t exist yet” link behind a banned that advertises for iTunes
TV, the supposed iPhone download service for videos. It doesn’t seem like a very clever name considering the fact they have a product with TV in it (Apple TV), and that many people could mistake it for TV shows only.
Lastly, two icon place holders have been found in the latest version of the iPhone SDK. Two place holders currently exist: “iPhone 1,1” which indicates an 8GB iPhone 3G, and an “iPhone 1,2” which would indicated a 16GB iPhone 3G. The other two placeholders are titled “iPhone 2,1” and “iPhone 2,2” which have no physical change of appearance, but seem to hint at a new iPhone coming up with hardware improvements.
And to end on a happy note, this month’s New Yorker has chosen it’s cover to be a piece of artwork done completely on a $5 iPhone app.
