First Look at iPhone 5

The rumours mills are working extremely hard this year. Parts of iPhone 5 have been all over the place. The final assembly of the physical phone was out even before Apple sent out the media invitation for 12th September 2012.

My first reaction to the design of iPhone 5 is... disappointed! Don't poke me, I am really disappointed and disgusted that after having the same iPhone design (4 and 4S) for the past 2 years, we are getting the same look and design again for the next one year. I mean same design but slightly thinner and longer phone. If you have not seen the iPhone 5 before, check out the video here:

Android owners will be laughing at us for having the same phone for 3 years. Apple is not moving, or are they complacent since SJ passing?

What's the purpose of having a 4 inches screen bearing a 16:9 ratio and having a weird resolution of 640 x 1136? We can't really think of what's Apple's plan with that.

To think of it again, I realised that I have wrong Apple.

What's Apple's design all about? If you were to look at the design of iMac, MacBook Pro and iPod, you will realise that the design of these products doesn't differ too much from it's predecessor. A 2007 aluminium iMac will almost look exactly like the current model. Ditto to MacBook Pro and iPod. Thus it wouldn't be strange that Apple decided to keep the changes to the design of iPhone 5 to the minimal. At least you will feel at ease with the new phone. Even with this larger 4 inches screen, the width of the phone remains unchanged. It will still be good for one-handed operation. You know what I mean if you have ever use a 4.5 or 5  inches Android phone.

With iPhone, it's all about the operating system - iOS. Everyone that owns an iPhone and tried an Android will know that. iOS is about simplicity. It's smooth and doesn't complicates. Thus the critical component of the iPhone 5 is not about the hardware, it's about iOS 6!

Let's see what surprise in iOS 6 that wasn't included in the beta for the developers! We are almost there! Just a week more to go.

Getting Watch Maker and third party watch faces to work on an iOS connected Android Wear

Many people loves their Apple Watch, so do I. As Android Wear improves over the past year,  we started to take it seriously. I have got an Huawei Watch with cool round 400x400 pixel AMOLED display. It looks like a traditional watch with a glance at it. The cool thing about having an Android Wear is that you have access to tons of cool watch faces. Apple Watch is limited by the fact that it has limited selection build by Apple, no developer has been given access to build any watch face for it.

You must be wondering how do you connect your Android Wear to iPhone and get access to third party watch faces. The Android Wear iOS app provided by Google provides access to some limited selection of watch faces, you can't use any of those that are out there on the internet developed for Watch Maker or Facer.

Thanks to Kevin from XDA Forum, you are in luck now. 

You can now install third party watch faces on your Android Wear and get connected to iPhone for notifications and Google Now. It may …

Why iPad

A lot have been said about the iPad, you would have already know what it have or have not. Just to re-cap, the iPad does not have USB port and webcam, it does not support java and flash. So why iPad when all these supposedly standards are not included?

First of all, iPad is not a computer. It's not intended to replace your PC or laptop. It serves as a in-between for your phone and PC. It's give you the convenience of instant start to your surfing habit, reading emails, ebooks, watching movies etc on your bedside, by the pool or on the plane, anywhere you can think of including your bathroom.

You do not have to worry about registry, 5 minutes to boot your PC, viruses and defragmentation. Your grandparents would have no problem with the device. My 71 years old father-in-law does not how to use a smartphone or a PC, however he is happily using the iPhone that I have given to him. Now with the iPad, he will have bigger screen and more full-fledged application. He will be able to us…
