iCloud Just Around The Corner?

5 Sep

 

 

 

 

9to5Mac (click link to read) is reporting that the staff training for iCloud and iOS 5 may just be around the corner following shots from an internal RetailMe application used by staff.  As 9to5 point out, this time may be different to previous evidence but staff training usually precedes a couple of weeks or so before a release.

We will post if we see or hear anything else.

Steve Jobs Steps Down As CEO of Apple

26 Aug

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Steve

, everybody sincerely hopes that you will still be visible and have an active role in the development of Apple, thank you and good luck. From everyone at MonkeyBill.

BGR have been testing iOS 5 and giving daily updates of Living with the operating system.  And the feedback is good with BGR declaring iOS 5 the one to beat.  With features such as iMessage beating Blackberry’s BBM service, the notifications app working so well, the Reminders App and tweaks to Mail all cited as filling the gaps that iOS previously had.

Can’t wait for a consumer version, hopefully it will be even better.  Also check out 9to5Mac for various other features they are constantly discovering within iOS 5.

Find My iPhone Updated

8 Jun

Find My iPhone now includes two good and wanted but simple upgrades

When you’re device has been stolen, one work around for the thief was to turn it off!  While off, the phone can not be traced.  Well now you will receive an email if the device is switched back on and located.

If you lose/forget/throw away (madness) a device, you can now also remove it from the Find My iPhone device list.

So there you go, two simple but good additions and thieves watch out! Don’t forget though, you need to configure Find My iPhone on your device first for it to work.
