Apple To Apples: One of the best Infographic you’ll ever see…

Apple the company may be one of the largest on the planet, with more cash on hand than the U.S. government. But have you ever wondered about how it compares to the fruit of the same name? Of course you have.

This MBA Online infographic raises the all-important question: How does the lunch box-staple fruit stack up against the Cupertino tech giant? Which industry makes more stuff, and which makes more money?

So here it is:

Boy wasn’t that interesting?

G-male and Siri: A Love Story…

We have seen people doing lots of stuff on the iPhone 4S’ Siri. One such is the ‘G-Male and Siri: A Love story’ which is a reply to the previous hit of Comediva’s ‘G-Male’ that was the Google’s version of a perfect boyfriend.

What happens when our two favorite intelligent devices fall in love?

With appearances from Blackberry, Yahoo, AOL, and more, all I can say is — it’s epic.

I lolled hard looking at BlackBerry perish! xP

30 year old IBM PC vs the iPhone 4…

It is always cool to see how technology products from a few decades ago stack against the latest ones. Keeping this in mind Alfred Poor and David Foster of Input Output created and designed a bizarre info-graphic comparing  a 30 year old IBM PC with the iPhone 4.

It’s just amazing to see how clock speeds, memory sizes, battery capacity and screen resolutions have increased over the years, while at the same time shrinking in size so as to fit in a device that you can carry in your pocket.

IBM PC versus iPhone 4

So the next time someone tells you that he or she isn’t happy with their iPhone, point them here to remind them of how far technology has come.

Review: ShowFlash

ShowFlash is a new jailbreak tweak which can be chucked into the “If you want it” category. What ShowFlash does is that it just flashes the screen like a screenshot is taken. You can choose from a set of options in the settings panel as to when you want the screen to flash.

The following options are available in the settings app:

  • App Launch
  • Kill App
  • Reveal Switcher
  • App To App
  • Siri Reveal
  • Volume Up
  • Volume Down

Check out ShowFlash in action below:


If you are interested in ShowFlash it is available for free in Cydia under the ModMyi repo. Again I specify this tweak is only for those who want it, so please don’t criticize it. :)

Let me know what you guys think about ShowFlash in the comments section below.

Review: TouchPosé+

It’s finally here! After a few weeks, the + version of TouchPosé has been released. The + version allows you to do so much more! You can now:

  • Use a Custom Image for the tracker
  • Change the color of the default tracker
  • Use more than 1 custom image for the tracker at once
 

Here’s how it works,

  1. You enable TouchPosé+ and select your activation method.
  2. You select your tracker (called pose in the settings panel).
  3. Head to Pose Settings to: a) select the color of the default Pose. b) Select the custom image for the tracker.
Check out TouchPosé+ in action below:
 You can add your own custom images by creating an image. The developer has sent me the specs which are (NOTE: Images can be any size, the sizes below are examples. Note that retina’s need @2x or they won’t work):
  • Should be saved to /var/mobile/TouchPose/
  • 40×40 for non retina display.
  • 80×80 for retina displays and you must add the @2x syntax at the end of the image name.
  • i.e pose.png or pose@2x.png.
Here is a video tutorial of how to add a custom image:
 Now that you’ve learned how the tweak works, let’s get on to the review ;).

TouchPosé+ is a nice visual tweak that anybody would enjoy. I recommend it to people who like DisplayRecorder’s tracker. It’s fast, has no lag at all and works nice with other tweaks. I like TouchPosé+ and ever since I heard of a + version coming I’ve been waiting for it.

TouchPosé+ was created by iolate and is available on the Cydia Store for $1.00.

Cydia April Fooled me… :@

Update: I was April Fooled by Cydia! :P

Yes you heard it right Cydia has been changed a little bit, this is no update to Cydia, today in fact just now when I reloaded Cydia to see if any cool new tweaks arrived, I noticed on the HomeScreen there was no mention of the blobs that Cydia had saved for me, then when I looked to navigate to the changes tab I saw there was nothing known as “changes” instead there was something known as “Timeline”.

What Timeline does is, it adds a small translucent bar above the date showing a few promoted Cydia themes, and when you click on them they take you right to the theme so that you can purchase/install. But the sad part is, the first one I saw was of Justin Bieber (just trolling but I’m totally serious about the Justin Bieber thing :P).

Anyway, this change has been a silent one has I doubt anyone knew about it.

As of now I have been able to spot only 3 upgrades:

  1. Cydia does not show the blobs on the Home page until you tap reload
  2. The changes tab was upgraded to Timeline
  3. There is a promotion bar for various themes/tweaks (I have not yet seen a tweak link, so I’m not sure about tweaks) in the Timeline tab

As a matter of fact I had noticed Cydia not showing me my blobs a few days ago to which I had created a troll meme:

But I did not really know if it was a change to Cydia but thought there was something wrong with mine, but now I think it’s a change… I don’t really know why was it required.

I understand the Timeline thing and the promotion thing but not the hidden blobs thing. (Too many “thing” eh?) :P

So let me know what you guys think about these minor changes in the comments section below.

Also let me know if you guys see some other change made to Cydia.
