Many people (read: ‘artists’) have tried incorporating everyday sounds into catchy, up beat songs – especially that of cellphones, as they are some of the most recognizable sounds in our lives. However, not many of them can pull that off successfully, mainly because they aren’t MetroGnome.

MetroGnome is a famed YouTube artist, perhaps best known for his remixes of famous songs; usually with an emphasis on pop culture, or songs and things trending at the moment.

One of his biggest hits was his amazing remix of the Breaking Bad theme song – complete with infectious guitar and everything. This time around, however, he turned to the very epitome of pop culture and technology – the iPhone.  (more…)

iPhone Air

For as long as Apple promises new iPhones, people from all across the globe will let their imaginations run and come up with their own iPhone concepts.

Some are great and very inspiring, while others are far fetched and well, downright ugly.

However, this new concept from designer Sam Beckett, falls under the ‘great and inspiring category.

Beckett’s concept is for a proposed iPhone Air. Now, there have been no official reports or claims of a possible iPhone Air in the pipeline, but considering the fact that Apple has launched an iPad Air along with it’s MacBook Air, the idea is not as far fetched.  (more…)

As Oscar Pistorius’ trial date draws closer and closer, investigators have finally secured a meeting with Apple in California, to help them unlock Pistorius’ locked iPhone.

According to FOX news, investigators met with Apple at the headquarters in California yesterday, in an attempt to retrieve more evidence from Oscar’s iPhone.

Since last year, investigators have had somewhat of a headache with the locked iPhone. Oscar, of course, said that he could not remember the passcode to unlock his iPhone – thus the locked phone has been with investigators ever since, where they have tried numerous times to by-pass the security code.

However, unlocking the phone proved more difficult than initially thought, and investigators had to secure help from Apple officials in California. (more…)

Published by on Feb 3rd, 2014, No Comments


While apps and smart devices are getting more concerned about your health, it seems that Apple’s plans for iOS 8 will also include fitness and health tracking – if these latest reports turn out to be true.

According to 9to5Mac, iOS 8 software will be able to track your vital signs by using intelligent sensors installed in your iPhone.

iOS 8 – which is codenamed Okemo – will have a key feature that will be able to track your heart rate, check your blood pressure and even your glucose levels. It will also be able to give you vital fitness stats such as the amount of steps you’ve taken in the day and how many calories you’ve burned.

While iOS 7 was more focused on a new design, iOS 8 looks set to be less focused on the interface and more focused on what new innovations it can bring to the table. And, just as we have come to expect from Apple, they are on the forefront of emerging trends – such as health apps and devices.  (more…)

Apple’s manufacturing partners may be up to something of their own in Southeast Asia, and we’ve just gotten our ears on news about Apple and it’s purportedly an image of a metal frame for the iPhone 6 (below).

There are a few things in life, specifically in the current digital age, that really transforms the world and makes such a significant impact that it will never be forgotten. One of those has been one of Apple’s most prolific inventions – the iPhone.

Today, 7 years ago, the late Steve Jobs introduced the world to the device that would soon become synonymous with the word ‘smartphone’ and mobile innovation.

To be fair, there have been some equally great smartphones released on the market that has given the almighty iPhone a hard run for its money (hello, Samsung Galaxy). Yet the iPhone still lathers itself in unfathomable popularity and takes its seat in pop culture royalty.  (more…)
