          Klout for iPhone Brings Social Networking Metrics to iOS

          Social networking service Klout has released an official iOS app called Klout for iPhone (original, hey?). Klout is an interesting product that combines activity from other social networking services, runs it through a bunch of algorithms, and assigns a score. These scores can be a good way to measure and track social-network influence. Some people use Klout to brag about their Internet status and others use it as a tool to track the effectiveness of social networking techniques. Then there’s a small subsection of Klout users that have turned the service into a game of its own. (more…)

                        Rumor: Samsung to Counter iCloud with S-Cloud

                        The Samsung Galaxy line is arguably the most popular and successful line of Google Android phones in the world. These days, however, great hardware isn’t enough. Services are an important part of supporting phones and tablets. One of the differentiating services Apple has for the iPhone and iPad is iCloud. The iCloud service is a useful and convenient (but limited) way to store and back up data. The word on the street is that Samsung will announce a similar service — with the amazingly unoriginal name S-Cloud — on May 3, 2012 to support its phones and tablets. (more…)

                          Newzoo Claims 81% of Kindle Fire Owners Are Gamers

                          Research firm Newzoo claims that there are now 17.4-million active users of the Amazon Kindle Fire in America. Amazon does not release precise hardware sales figures, so companies like Newzoo are needed to provide comparative data (and fuel fanboy wars). While the number of active users is certainly impressive, what’s even more interesting is that an extremely high number of Kindle Fire owners play games — 81 percent according to Newzoo. (more…)

                              Obama’s Minions Invade Rush Limbaugh’s iPhone Through Siri

                              It’s crazy what gets politicized these days — food, clothing, beverages, etc. have all been used to further political agendas. The latest non-partisan object to be used in the never-ending battle between people with different political ideologies is the iPhone 4S. Famed commentator and radio host Rush Limbaugh claims that Siri on his iPhone 4S was talking to him about President Barack Obama, Obama’s “minions,” and wind power. (more…)

                                Liquid Metal iPhone Coming in 2012?

                                In 2010, Apple acquired exclusive rights to LiquidMetal’s technologies in order to use its amorphous alloys in future products. The tech ultimately allows for products that are stronger, lighter, and more durable, without interfering with mobile signals. The iPhone rumor mill says that LiquidMetal tech is coming to the iPhone in 2012. (more…)

                                  Nintendo Patent Could Have Ramifications For All Mobile Gaming

                                  Nintendo was recently granted a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office that could have a major impact on all of mobile gaming. The patent filing could simply be a case of a large company protecting itself…or it could be an exciting hint at a major change in direction for Nintendo. Check out the abstract on the patent below.

                                    Lost Steve Jobs Interview Tapes Found

                                    Longtime tech journalist Brent Schlender recently did some spring cleaning and came across several tapes with interviews he conducted with late Apple founder Steve Jobs. Spanning 1991 to 2004, the tapes cover a wide variety of topics. The most interesting quotes are Jobs’ thoughts on his time at Next and Pixar, which clearly changed him and helped make his second run at Apple so incredible. One of the funniest and most poignant quotes was Jobs’ thoughts on how The Beatles are a great example of executive management. Check it out. (more…)

                                      Samuel L Jackson and Zooey Deschanel iPhone Siri Commercials

                                      Here are a pair of Apple commercials featuring the iPhone 4S and Siri, as well as a pair of major celebrities. The first spot features the hardest-working actor in Hollywood, Samuel L. Jackson. Sadly, he’s not screaming at his iPhone 4S in his Nick Fury character, nor is he yelling to Siri about getting snakes off an airplane. The second spot features the incredibly talented and beautiful Zooey Deschanel. She’s not yelling at Siri about snakes on a plane either. (more…)

                                        TSA Agent Busted For Stealing Eight iPads

                                        The Transportation Security Administration is one of the most reviled government organizations in America. While I believe that the majority of TSA agents are decent, hard-working people, a small amount of them are incompetent morons that abuse their power and help make traveling by airplane an unpleasant experience. Then there are TSA agents like Clayton Keith Dovel that steal iPads while “inspecting” baggage. Check out the video below. (more…)
