Chris Ziegler aka @zpower one of the founding members of The Verge accepted a job at Apple without letting anyone know for the past two months according to a note from Nilay Patel, EIC of The Verge.

Apple’s Greg Joswiak on What Makes Apple Apple →

Greg Joswiak Apple’s Vice President of iPhone marketing did a great interview with Re/code at the Code/Mobile conference with Walt Mossberg and Ina Fried.

My favorite part of the interview when Ina asked Greg regarding the Apple Watch that he’s wearing, opening the way for Walt to ask the question that everyone wants to ask regarding the price of the Apple Watch.

In the interview Greg is seen wearing the small size of the Apple Watch saying that he prefer this size, and that the two Apple Watch sizes are about choice:

about making sure you have product that look and feel right for you.

Walt took another shot at Greg regarding how accurate Siri is going to be in car when using Apple CarPlay and it backfired in a funny way.

You should definitely watch it.


How To Sync Firefox Bookmarks With iPhone

Recently I wanted to try other web browsers on both OSX and iOS. There’s a lot of options out there, from Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

Here’s the top browsers that my readers use to visit this site:

  1. Chrome.
  2. Safari.
  3. Firefox.

The only challenge that I had is syncing my bookmarks from MacBook running Snow Leopard to my iPhone running iOS 7.1.2 and iPad running iOS 8.1. Safari has iCloud bookmark syncing but i can’t use it since i’m running SL, And Chrome (Dev Channel) is already my Browser of choice so I looked for something new.

Apple accidentally leaks iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Forget about today’s new security vulnerability named Poodle and forget about Google’s new Android OS named Lollipop, Apple today did a funnier thing than both of these names.

Apple leaked by “mistake” iOS 8.1 iPad user guide that include photos of the upcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The photos included in the user guide which were reported first by Mark Gurman from 9To5Mac shows that the both new iPads will include a Touch ID sensor.

So incase something bad happened in tomorrow’s Apple live event, you sure won’t miss out on anything, thanks to this “accidental leak”.

Apple is rumored to announce a new 12.9inch iPad with TouchID, A possible new iMac, and the release of OS X Yosemite to the public which was first released to developers on July 24 this year.

My only wish for this live stream is that it doesn’t suck like the last one.


Apple next event is set for October 16

Apple sent out invitations for it’s next media event with the title: It’s been way too long.

The even will be held at Cupertino campus and will begin at 10:00 am PT according to Jim Dalrymple Editor in Chief of LoopInsight who first reported about Apple’s event.

The first notable thing that we should expect from this event is releasing OS X Yosemite to the public, Next thing is next gen iPad Air which is rumored to be bigger, have an A8X Processors and a 12.9 Inch screen.

What I want to see the most is Touch ID on the iPad, a bigger storage, and a cool new unexpected thing, I’m not sure though about a bigger screen since the current one is big enough.
Until then, make sure to put the date of the even on your calendar.
