This week was rather light on rumors. It was also remarkably light on nonsense rumors — only 25 percent of this week’s rumors were sourced from analysts, which made it much less necessary to reach for antacid tablets every time I read through my news feeds.
While there’s no positive proof that this card is intended for future Macs, it looks similar enough to the part in current Macs.
According to listings posted on Apple’s job site, the people of Switzerland will soon have their fourth Apple retail store. The available job openings are currently for a manager, inventory specialist, and an Apple Creative, Genius, and Customer Adviser.
The listings were first spotted by Swiss Apple site MacPrime. The site had previously speculated that Apple was building a store at Freie Strasse 47 in the city center. The old building that had lived at that location was recently demolished and construction had begun on a new, Apple-esque structure. Today’s job posting seems to confirm that the site was correct.
We’ve been following the saga of 22Cans’ Curiosity ever since it started last year, and after speeding up the project just recently, Peter Molyneux has announced via Twitter today that it’s now done. The last cube has been tapped by a winner in Scotland named Bryan Henderson, and the prize is that Henderson will become the actual god of Godus, which is Molyneux’s next game in the works. As you can hear in the winner’s video, Henderson will get to help decide the rules of the game going forward, and there’s a little monetary compensation as well: He’ll get a cut of the proceeds whenever someone spends money in Godus.
The US’s Memorial Day holiday and Monday’s bank holiday in the UK are trying to tell us something: as we kick off the summer season (unofficially), the Talkcast is taking the weekend off as well. We’ll be thinking of you all as we tip back our margaritas/microbrews/organic kombucha by the beach/mountainside/fire escape lounge chair.
Next Sunday we’ll be back with an all-new, all-live show — and, if things go well, a brand-new calling interface to entice you with killer audio quality and sleek chat tools!
The iPad’s Camera Connection Kit is a remarkably talented accessory. With its standard USB connector plus a bit of ingenuity, clever folks have found all sorts of things to connect that would not ordinarily be expected to connect: headsets, keyboards and a variety of storage devices. You can even connect an iPhone to an iPad and import photos from one to the other.
The latest demonstration of how flexible the CCK can be comes via vintage Mac fan Niles Mitchell. He pointed out this video showing an iPad importing photos (slowly and deliberately, to be sure) from a properly prepped floppy disk.
