Earlier this week, rumor had it that iTunes 10.1 would drop on Wednesday, followed by iOS 4.2 today. As Lance Whitney reported this morning, iOS 4.2 appears to have been delayed by a Wi-Fi bug--but what happened to iTunes 10.1?
It's here. I just downloaded it. You can get it yourself by heading to Apple's iTunes download page, or just clicking Help > Check for Updates in your current version of iTunes.
As expected, version 10.1 adds support for syncing with iOS 4.2-equipped devices--though iOS 4.2 itself remains MIA. Also included … Read more
A Wi-Fi bug has reportedly sidelined Apple's iOS 4.2 update, which was rumored to be launching today.
MacStories, Engadget, and other blogs have pinned the cause of the delay on a Wi-Fi connectivity bug affecting the iPad. Users who've been testing the Gold Master release of the update on Apple's popular tablet reportedly have been able to establish a connection but not able to actually connect to anything, or are simply losing the connection after a few minutes.
Though Apple never announced an official release date for iOS 4.2, CEO Steve Jobs has said that … Read more
Traveller's Tales' Lego video games (including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman) are among the wittiest and most entertaining I've ever played. My kids love 'em, too. Alas, though they've made appearances on all the major consoles as well as handheld systems like the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP, not one of the games has been ported to iOS. Until now.
According to a PR rep for Warner Bros. and TT Games, Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 will be arriving "soon" for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Just how soon, the rep wouldn't say, … Read more
Perhaps peculiarly, Apple removed AirPrint from the public release of Mac OS X 10.6.5, an update largely expected to allow iOS 4.2 devices, such as the iPad, to print to shared network printers.
AppleInsider reports that users experimenting with various settings in Mac OS X 10.6.5 have discovered a way to bring the iOS AirPrint function back to your Mac. AirPrint uses CUPS technology, an open source Unix-friendly printing architecture, owned and maintained by Apple.
The CUPS filter used to convert the AirPrint URF format into PDF format for printing was the component removed from … Read more
Zombie Crisis 3D is a rail shooter that gives users the pleasure of destroying zombies without the hassle of having to control the character's movement. This particular version of the popular zombie-themed games that populate Apple's App Store relies on a predetermined course through a multitude of levels to help players escape the zombie attack.
The loose storyline is fairly typical of most zombie games--escape. The plethora of creepy characters attacking you don't really stand out as particularly ground-breaking from a design standpoint, but certainly trump many attempts of competitors on the iOS platform.
Overall the game … Read more
Just as wireless Bluetooth speakers are starting to get some love from the surge of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch users over the past few years, Apple's new AirPlay wireless audio standard is setting out to make them obsolete.
Apple's own description page for its AirPlay technology (a part of iOS 4.2 and Apple TV) specifically mentions compatibility with the Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin and upcoming Denon and Marantz receivers, but leaves out specifics on anything portable or affordable. Fortunately, iHome seems to have a solution for the rest of us.
The iHome iW1 is the company'… Read more
For iPad owners envious of the iPhone's multitasking abilities, you won't have to covet any longer.
iOS 4.2--software that will update, improve, and repair a variety of features and bugs for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad--could be available by Friday. Steve Jobs said last month that it would arrive sometime in November, and this week the rumormongers are pointing to the end of the week for the day it will drop. The near final version of the software was released to developers last week, and Apple has already started accepting iOS 4.2-compatible apps.
Now, this … Read more
