In a guest post for VentureBeat, Patrick Keane writes that the new flat aesthetic in iOS 7 will force mobile advertisers to adjust their approach and will ultimately result in the decline of mobile banner ads.
While I certainly hope that the end result envisioned by Keane comes to pass — after all, who enjoys intrusive banner ads — I’m not quite sure if I agree with some of his reasoning.
Continuing with our series exploring dollar store accessories, I recently picked up a pair of sleeves compatible with original and
bite sized mini iPads.
Widely available at most dollar stores, low cost sleeves provide utilitarian tablet protection. The ones I bought and tested consisted of a spongy exterior fabric, with a sturdy Velcro closing. Both were sized appropriately for Apple products.
Now it is Twitter’s turn, apparently courtesy of a third party app. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to the Guardian that the site itself was not directly attacked.
We’ve seen plenty of leaks of the low-cost iPhone 5C‘s rear shell; so much so, in fact, that it’s almost as if Apple has already announced it. But while we may have seen it compared with the likes of the iPhone 5, we haven’t seen how it will potentially cope with those everyday scrapes and bumps, but Taiwenese blog Apple Daily has come through with a video that shows the back cover being put to the sword. Lining up to test the resolve of the iPhone 5C’s rear housing includes a collection of your day-to-day smartphone nemeses, including keys and coins. How did the soon-to-be-released handset fare against a tidal wave of objects? Find out after the break!
To test its durability, Apple Daily placed the shell inside a plastic bag along with a key and some coins for company. Ensue some rather forceful shaking, and although one might have expected to see some damage, the case emerged unscathed.
