  • iPhone OS 3.0!by HOSTMEI R on DECEMBER 2, 2011iPhone OS 3.0!Image by ıʇʇǝʌ‫ן‬ɐɔ ɥsoɾAnother Apple announcement, another Flickr blog. Here goes…First off, it looks good. Developers obviously have gotten the most benefits, but what doyou expect from an SDK intro, you know?I will not mention the various developer APIs, as most of you probably aren‘t interested. Iwill, however, go into detail about the other things that were introduced.#1: Copy & Paste! It was about time. Not sure why this wasn‘t in the first release of thesoftware. According to Apple, there were ―Security Issues‖ before. Support is global in allof Apple‘s apps, and it will be easy for third-party developers to work it into their apps.Execution seems simple enough, although we‘ll see how it works in real life.#2: Landscape Support: Safari always had landscape support, but now it is found in mostof Apple‘s default apps as well. Mail, Notes, Stocks, & SMS all have it now. This is great,as I like the horizontal keyboard, having larger keys, and I do send quite a bit of emailfrom my iPod. This should make things faster… While on the subject, more than onephoto can be sent at once now.#3: MMS: For me, not a big deal, as I have an iPod Touch. However, it seems it has beenimplemented well. Supports contact data, audio, pictures, etc. Again, not sure why thiswasn‘t in the first release.#4: Push Notification: Yeah, this was supposed to be announced last year. Apple saysthey had complications. Anyhow, it will be the same as it was demoed last year, allowingapps to give notifications if something happens via network service.#5: Bluetooth: Now supports P2P sharing of LEGAL things (sorry, pirates), as well asstereo audio, wire-free. On first glance, this would seem to only affect iPhone right? Wellsort of… iPhone Edge will not get the stereo audio, as it doesn‘t have that hardware. But,remember the Bluetooth chip iFixit found in the 2nd Gen Touch? While it was originally
  • designed for the Nike+ kit, Apple has now ―Unlocked‖ it and it will also do the filetransfer and A2DP.#6: Tethering: Sort of. Support is built-in by Apple, but the carriers will have to be dealtwith. Apple seems confident that tethering will happen soon.#7: Calendar Compatibility: It can take new calendar data, as well as subscriptions.#8: Ability to purchase things from inside apps: Things like e-magazine subscriptions.#9: Voice Memos: Apple added a basic voice memos app to the iPhone. Unless third-party apps can find a way to add extra features, I see this as Apple effectively killing thoseapps for iPhone. However, the iPod Touch will not get this app, so the third-parties canstill develop for the 2nd Gen Touch.#10: Notes Sync: Briefly mentioned. Not sure how this will work, but it will be nice.And finally… Spotlight! Yay! As those of you with Macs know, Spotlight is Apple‘s globalsearch tool. It looks for anything, anywhere. Now, it‘s on iPhone. To the left of the firsthomescreen is a searchbar, which you type in your query. It will search calendars, mail,contacts, iPod library, etc. for what you are looking for. I‘ll definitely be using this. Searchwill also be in the default iPod app, something which I was just bemoaning the lack of lastnight.Overall, I view this as a big update- definitely calls for a new version of the OS. However,there are some things still missing…#1: Flash: Frankly, I couldn‘t care less. I have a vehement hatred against Flash and wouldrather not see it on the iPhone. For entire websites that are written in Flash and wantiPhone support, change your website design to HTML. Flash is an awful way to write anentire website. You deserve to not be on the iPhone if your whole site is Flash-ified.*End rant*If Flash were introduced, I would hope there would be an option to turn it off. That wouldbe the first thing I‘d do.
  • #2: Background Apps: For the most part, I‘m okay. The only apps I truly want to run inthe background are my RSS viewer, Twitterific, and Pandora. The others I really don‘tcare about.#3: Better App Management: This is the only thing I‘m actively disappointed about. As Ihave four pages of apps, I‘d like to see some form of management. For example, appscould have a ―Genre‖ which they are assigned to. You then have the option to order appsby Genre. There would be multiple ways to do this.Free for iPhone, .95 for iPod Touch.So there you have it. Way too much text crammed into a Flickr description box. I know I‘llbe forking over .95 in Summer for this update.Question by CUCKOO: is this a good laptop? lenovo?i bought this @ USD 1125 USD…Lenovo Consumer Y410 775732ALenovo Consumer Y410 775732A Notebook PC P 54,984Specifications:• • Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7100 (1.8GHz)• • 2MB• • 800Mhz• • Intel PM965• • 2x512MB 667MHZ DDR2 / 2GB• • 120GB S-TAT HDD• • CD-RW/DVD-RW Slot-in Rambo• • 14.1 WXGA(1280×800) TFT LCD

Check out all the grooveslooping around thecircumference of the record. Carl Haber‘s optical scanning and digital audio preservationtool, IRENE, takes high-speed photographs as the 78 rpm record plays. Twenty-five spinsof the record are needed to produce a large digital file, roughly 80,000 pixels long, thatcan be analyzed by the computer to produce the corresponding sound from the record.Each image produced by IRENE is turned into a WAV audio file roughly 7 seconds long.Image Source: Sheraz SadiqQuestion by generic_cyberperson: Where can I download a tool which willlet me record audio being played on my computer, without a mircrophone?i.e., a program which will ‗grab‘ sound as it comes out of the speakers, or whatever.

  • enrolled in the University of Maryland‘s newly-launched Digital Cultures and Creativity(DCC) living and learning program within the Honors College were given an Apple iPadat the start of the fall semester (above – Terp Freshman Victoria Lai receives her newiPad from OIT‘s Michael Hooker).This device will be fully integrated into the program‘s curriculum, where it will serve asthe basis for content delivery and instruction. Students will also have the opportunity tolearn to develop their own applications for the iPad. The devices were handed out in lateAugust when students move onto campus. This latest action is part of the university‘sMobility Initiative, a pilot program studying whether mobile technology enhances thestudent education experience."DCC is thrilled to be joining the university‘s innovative Mobility Initiative," said Dr.Matthew Kirschenbaum, Associate Professor of English and Director of Digital Culturesand Creativity. Kirschenbaum adds, "Many of DCC‘s students are digital natives who willcome to campus already having programmed their own applications, made their ownelectronic music and art, or designed their own interactive media. They will use theiriPads in the context of a curriculum that immerses them in the surprisingly long andcomplex history of thought behind today‘s new media devices. They will learn to developnew content for the platform, as well as use it to consume rich media integral to theireducation."DCC‘s faculty includes Associate Professor of Computer Science and former director ofthe University of Maryland‘s Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory Ben Bederson,who has already developed applications for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.For nearly two years, the University of Maryland has been studying whetherincorporating mobile technology enhances the student educational experience.Sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost,the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the Office of Information Technology, theMobility Initiative began in fall 2008. During its two years of existence, 280 freshmen inthe Banneker/Key Scholarship and Maryland Incentive Awards programs have beengiven either an iPhone or iPod touch to test inside and outside of class.In addition to the 75 DCC students who received an Apple iPad in the fall, approximately160 new freshmen in the Banneker/Key Scholarship and Maryland Incentive Awardsprograms were given either an iPhone or iPod touch devices – bringing the number ofstudent pilot participants to approximately 515.
  • During the initiative‘s first year, more than 130 student participants used the mobiledevices to substitute for student response devices (also known as clickers) in class, toaccess the mobile versions of the university‘s portal and learning management system,and to participate in varied special activities, such as research scavenger hunts.For its second year, the pilot study expanded to include additional students, professors,and learning opportunities. New efforts were undertaken to support faculty in theirefforts to incorporate mobile learning into their courses, including offering a set of iPodtouch devices that can be loaned out to students in a course to support specific learningactivities.Additionally, an Office of Information Technology (OIT) and Center for TeachingExcellence (CTE) partnership gives participants in the CTE‘s Summer Institute forNew(er) Technologies the opportunity to explore integrating mobile learning activitiesinto their courses with support from OIT."Four fall courses and five spring courses have been part of these efforts," said Ellen YuBorkowski, Director of Academic Support in the Office of Information Technology. "Someof the mobile learning activities in these courses include recording assessments of highschool PE teachers, recording use of media as part of an international research study,collecting and distributing interpretations of poetry, and using the devices‘ recording andplayback features in support of learning foreign languages. OIT and the CTE plan tocontinue this partnership into the Mobility Initiative‘s third year," Borkowski said.Additionally, for the spring 2010 semester, a new upper-level computer science offeringwas introduced to the university‘s curriculum. The new course, "CMSC498I: SelectedTopics in Computer Science: Programming the iPhone," covers topics such as iPhonedevelopment tools and fundamentals; user interface design; media considerations relatedto gaming, audio, and video; and usability and quality assessment. As part of the course,students are developing new mobile applications for the iPhone, specifically focusing onones that can be deployed and used across the university as part of Maryland‘s overallefforts to support mobile devices on campus.Digital Cultures and Creativity is sponsored by the College of Arts and Humanities, withco-sponsorship from the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, theDepartment of Computer Science, and the College of Information Studies.
