Affordable iPhone insurance for accidental damage and theft
About InsuranceForiPhones.Com After my 3rd broken or stolen iPhone (I only blame myself) it was time to find some insurance. I thought about insurance after my 2nd drop but couldn't find an affordable option. Then I found Worth Ave. Group. I paid 63 dollars for the policy, half the price of squaretrade. When my phone was stolen afterward they replaced it for just a 50 dollar deductible. So for 113 dollars, I got a brand new iPhone. Since I wasn't eligible for an upgrade with AT&T, it was going to cost 500 for a new phone! On ebay it was at least 600 for a new 16GB iPhone 3GS. You do the math! And THAT is why I started this site. Hopefully I'll save some of you from having a broken phone and no insurance!
Eton has invented a case that not only protects your iPhone, but it also can charge it, too. With the Mobius iPhone Case, all you have to do is put the case in direct sunlight, and the it starts charging. When it is fully charged, the Mobius will more than double the battery life of your iPhone. It adds five hours of talk time, or eight hours of 3G access or video playback. Just one hour of charge time gives you 25 minutes of talk time.
You can also charge the case up separately or while on the phone with a USB cable.
According to a new analyst report, Apple may give away the iPhone 3GS to customers who purchase a new two-year service contract. Mike Abramsky with RBC Capital Markets wrote in a research note that this move is expected from Apple because of consumers who are seeking low-budget choices for cell phones. Abramsky predicted the move will also increase the iPhone’s market share against the Android-based smartphones. Even though the iPhone is one of the most popular phones today, Google’s Android OS has become more popular recently due to the use of the system on smartphones such as Motorola, Samsung, and HTC.
Here’s hoping Apple actually offers a free iPhone!
This year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) will be held next Monday, June 6th. Apple is expected to launch some new products this year. One product is called iCloud- but no one knows much about it yet. It seems that iCloud may be some type of expansion of Apple’s MobileMe product.
Two more products that are expected to launch are iOS5, the next generation of Apple’s mobile software, and also Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, the eighth version of Mac’s operating system.
Here’s hoping Apple goes ahead and releases the iPhone 5!
Even though all the other iPhones have been released in June, the iPhone 5 may be different. Due to the iPhone 4 going onto the Verizon network, the iPhone 5 may be delayed until around September. Also, the recent earthquake in Japan is said to have an impact on the production of the Apple products, which could be another reason for the delay.
According to the MacRumors website, “Apple has informed us that they do not plan to release the iPhone in the June to July time frame, though there will be a newer version in the future. Unfortunately, we have not been given a release time for the new phone. We will release this information on our web site when it is available to us.”
Some think the iPhone 5 will be produced for a release during the holidays of 2011 or early 2012. I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
Rueters has just released a new article on the iPhone 5 and according to their sources we’ll have to wait till September for the new iPhone. Apple has been pretty consistent with releasing a new iPhone around June but it sounds like we’ll have to wait a little longer this year. For a full read on Rueters article click: iPhone 5.
So, here’s some news that could be true…or not. No one really knows anything about the iPhone 5 yet because it isn’t supposed to be released until June. There’s been some articles saying that there could possibly be an iPhone 5 docking computer. The iPhone would fit into the laptop computer where the touchpad is located and the laptop dock could charge and sync the iPhone 5.
Check out the picture. What do you think? Real or fake? I hope it’s real!
On Friday, Apple released the iPad 2. Also released on the same day was the Smart Case for the iPad 2. The Smart Case is a cover for the iPad 2 that was developed to work just with the iPad 2. It attaches to the iPad 2 with magnets and protects the screen. But it’s not just a cover. It’s a stand for using the keyboard and FaceTime. When you cover the iPad with the Smart Case, the case puts the iPad to sleep, and when you take the cover off, the iPad wakes up. If you go to Apple’s website, you can see everything the Smart Case can do.
You can order the Smart Case from the Apple Store now. It comes in 10 colors- 5 made of polyurethane colors and 5 made of leather. The polyurethane cases are $39 and the leather cases are $69.
Here’s a video so you can see just how awesome this case really is.
There are pictures all over the internet of what seems to be the new iPhone that will be released this summer- the iPhone 5. Rumors have been saying that the iPhone 5 will have a bigger 4-inch screen instead of the 3.5-inch screen on the older models. Apple is doing this to compete with its competitors, and the picture definitely shows a larger screen. You can see that the screen goes all the way out to the edges and is also taller, stretching closer to the home button and the earpiece/front-facing camera than the previous iPhone models. Also, there are some clues that point to an A5 processor- the same processor that Apple just put in the new iPad 2.
We’ll just have to wait until June to find out if this is all true!
There are millions of blind people living in the United States. When they have pay for something with cash, it is very difficult for them because the all of the US dollar bills are the same size. The only way to tell the difference between a $1 bill and a $100 bill is to look at it.
Well, a company called LookTel is changing things up a bit. They just came up with an app that uses the camera on the iPhone or iPod Touch to identify and say aloud which bill is showing on the screen in real-time. The app doesn’t require an internet connection, so you can use the app anywhere, anytime. Check out the video below.
This app is only $1.99 and is available for download now!
