I've been single for two years and every sloppy attempt I've made to change this sad fact has been just that: sloppy. Maybe what's been missing all along is these biorhythms lubbaa is telling me about, and if I started every conversation I had with appealing men at bars with, "What's your birth date? Give me a second," instead of "Hey papi, want a taste?" I'd be getting somewhere.
The intriguing logo of lubbaa, a chubby, curvy lowercase "a" punctuated by a speckled heart, is quickly belied by the app's look once it is opened. Some sort of natural fall theme in browns and yellows composed of stock photos of nature decorate lubbaa's innards. It could be made to look alright if not for the goofy font, possibly chosen to mimic a relaxed handwriting. Maybe it's supposed to be like the journal of a 14 year-old girl going through a Wiccan phase; she's calculating the biorhythms of all the cute boys in her high school to see if they might be fit to be brought home to daddy. "But, Daddy!" she'll cry, as he stares disdainfully at Trent's arm sleeve of tattoos and lip piercing. "Our sensitivity and emotional biorhythms sync perfectly!"
iTweakiOS has launched an AT&T carrier hack, which promises to deliver increased data speeds just like the previously released T-Mobile hack. Joe Brown and Sky Zangas, the developer team behind iTweakiOS, claim the new AT&T hack improves data performance on both LTE and HSPA+.
“Just like with the T-Mobile hack, this hack does the same. Band preferences were set to limit you to a certain band rather than the band giving off the strongest signal, when available, both with LTE and HSPA+.”
“This hack enables Release 9 DC-HSPA+ on the iPhone 5 and iPad 3, 4, and mini as well as enhancing LTE data and signal. Though AT&T is limited to HSPA+ 21, the device itself becomes more open to an increased amount of bandwidth thus allowing for better throughput of data and data connection. This is very convinient [sic] for users in areas that don’t yet have LTE coverage.”
Not only did jailbreak tweak developer Filippo Bigarella release an app on the official App Store, but his work is quickly catapulting to the top of the Finance category. Balances is ranked number 6 in the top chart of finance apps only three days after release. So what's making Balances so popular?
For one, the app has a slick, minimalist design that functions efficiently for the task at hand. Tracking debts owed to others and debts owed to you is intuitive and easy with Balances. Tap the plus or minus button to add an entry, then enter the name, amount and a note. Once the debt has been paid, just swipe and the entry goes into a completed list.
Hot on the heels of CBS launching their streaming video app, ABC has followed suit with the Watch ABC app for iOS. Not only does the app provide streaming episodes of popular shows that have aired on ABC, but live video is available for TV fans in selected markets. Initially, the live video service is only available in New York and Philadelphia.
Down the line, more markets will receive the live video service, which basically duplicates the broadcast anyone can receive with an HD antenna in the local area. Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, Raleigh-Duram, and San Francisco are next on the list to receive live video service with Watch ABC, with the feature slated to arrive before the end of this summer.
iPhone 5 power users will be happy to know that Mophie continues to improve their Juice Pack iPhone cases with built-in battery backup. The latest model, the Juice Pack Plus for iPhone 5 packs a 2100 mAh battery inside, exceeding the capacity of all previous models. So what does a battery this size do for your iPhone's longevity?
How about a full 120 percent extra battery power from the stock, built-in power pack on the iPhone 5? No need to do the math, essentially the Mophie case more than doubles your battery life, adding up to 10 additional hours of 3G talk time, 10 additional hours of LTE data time, and 12 extra hours of video playback.
Apple is known for retaining the external look and form factor of the iPhone in between major upgrades, tweaking things a little and adding an "S" to the number. Now that more parts have surfaced as Apple prepares its latest smartphone for production, it seems that the iPhone 5S could have more significant design changes in store.
For the most part, these upgrades will be internal while the size and shape of the 5S will remain the same. More evidence has surfaced, however that Apple will release the iPhone 5S in different colors besides silver and black, as a gold SIM card tray matching those previously leaked is included in the latest batch of photos from BGR. So what does Apple have up its sleeve for the next generation iPhone?
Forget about thermostats and light bulbs. The next iPhone-friendly home improvement is already here, and it's called Kēvo from lock maker Kwikset. Thanks to Bluetooth this UniKey-enabled wireless deadbolt unlocks with a simple touch, that is as long as you have your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch somewhere close-by.
Once your iOS device is paired with the Kēvo, the deadbolt detects that an authorized device is within range and will lock or unlock when touched. The slick built-in light even flashes green to indicate the lock is being activated successfully. Bluetooth 4 is required, so that limits compatibility to at least the iPhone 4S, iPad 3, iPod touch 5G or newer devices. Low energy consumption means the four AA batteries installed in your door last a whole year.
It is like the developers read our minds, Samurai vs Zombies 2 is just too easy to beat, which left most players stuck with an awesome samurai army and nothing to do. Lets not even discuss the pointless and boring Multiplayer mode that Glu Games Inc. added to the sequel, because it does not extend the game's replay value.
If you're like me, and have beat every level, daily challenge and have collected every artifact more than three times, I have good news. Glu Games has rolled out an all new “Endless Mode" that generates single player waves beyond level 50. There is also a new warrior Daimyo (you have to pay real money to unlock him), new ally upgrades, and even a new zombie wasteland to battle through. Other upgrades include small tweaks such as the ability to view an enemy's individual stats, new Village Archers artillery, new Bridge Spirits to defend your gate, and additional stability and performance improvements.
Tired of fingerprint scanner rumors? Well get used to them, because it looks like fingerprint sensors are going to be the big iPhone rumor this year. According to the Taiwanese website TechNews, the next-generation iPhone will feature a sapphire crystal capacitive touch home button with fingerprint scanning technology. The iPhone 5 iSight camera is also made with sapphire crystal to cut down on scratches. Using the same material for the home button would help keep the fingerprint sensor intact and functional.
TechNews also claims that the next-generation iPhone will be all small upgrade from the iPhone 5, and will feature a 4-inch display. The Taiwanese website's supply chain sources believe that the so-called "iPhone 5S" will be released sometime in August alongside the rumored budget iPhone. Previous rumors have also suggested that the new iPhone will feature a new 13 megapixel camera with a larger rear flash, and it will be available in an iPod touch-like array of colors.
Now iPhone fans looking for no-contract wireless service on the AT&T network can turn to Aio Wireless. The new company will offer different tiers based on individual markets, with unlimited text messages, voice and data. Data plans will include a specific amount of high-speed (4G HSPA+ where available) data with additional usage over the limit being throttled.
Currently the service is available in Houston, Orlando and Tampa, with other US cities coming soon. Three data tiers will be offered in each market, with pricing ranging from $35 for 100 MB of high-speed data to 7 GB for $70. Right now Aio offers customers in Houston a 100 MB plan for $35, while Orlando and Tampa customers can spend as little as $40 for a 250 MB plan. Unfortunately for iPhone owners, the lowest-priced tiers are not available with smartphones.
