Steve sells. Even after death.

He’s a genius, he of course is. He’s smart-ass. He’s got millions of people loving him. He founded Apple, he redefined touch, he gave a new meaning to ‘i’. He’s Jobs. Steve Jobs. Nope, I’m not gay.

Reports say Steve Jobs made a sensation in the internet after his death – 10000 tweets per second. No wonder that’s a record.

Apart from that, his biographies have shooted up by a whopping 48,000% in Amazon. I can feel the dropping of your job. Er, jaw, I mean.

Apple's iPhone 5 to be announced on October

Not

a lot of days back, you’d have heard Jobs leave Apple. But that wouldn’t stop Apple from seeing progress. As expected, the iPhone 5 is to be announced by the start of this October – October 4th, to be precise. Also, we can expect the fifth gen iphones hit the markets after a couple of weeks.

Buying it, aren’t we? Let’s not lie, if not buying we’re at least eying at it.

Tim Cook

We’ll probably get to see Tim Cook, the new CEO of apple, on stage. Are you looking forward to the event and/or iPhone 5? Let us know, like always, by leaving a comment. :)

Final-Cut-Pro-X

Apple’s Final Cut Pro X is a disaster!

Apple launched its latest version of Final Cut Pro, (video editing software) the Final Cut Pro X on June 21st. Apple states that Final Cut Pro X is completely built from scratch and is a lot more advanced than the previous one.

Final-Cut-Pro-X-is-a-disaster

FCP X consists of a high-end video editing technology that beats every other video editing software out there. Apple has put together a complete featurelist over what new improvements it holds on its predecessor. The most prominent feature being it grabs out the heart of your 64-bit CPUs and throttles it completely. Full GPU utilization and adding more speed by making use of the latest Thunderbolt I/O ports are some of the key features of FCP X.

Apparently the developers of FCP X failed to include many of its important features, such as the ability to open previous FCP projects. FCP X also revolves around a number of issues like limited XML support, no 3D support and unusability of third-party add-ons. Apple has also officially stated that all other versions of Final Cut have been discontinued. The reviews have completely gone down, the negative criticism to this app went upto such an extent that Apple had to close down new reviews, although Apple regards this as an App Store bug. As TNW has rightly said it, “We’ll treat this one as a bug, though with some skepticism.”

This app has wreaked havoc even in the HOLLYWOOD. Conan O’ Brien mocks this piece of shit openly on his show. Take a look at this video.

For a complete PROS and CONS list refer to this article.

We at CHAAPS recommend of not investing in this software, atleast until it is fully patched by Apple. If you want to still give it a try, proceed to this link and click Buy. Thanks to Apple for keeping this app as a low budget software, FCP X is currently priced at $299.

Drop a comment to share your views about this huge disaster! Will video professionals revert to some other Windows app or keep continuing working in the buggy FCP X’s environment. Share your thoughts.

The good news is you will have full control over your privacy. You can change how you want others to see you. Hiding sensitive information has just become easy. Also you can become invisible anywhere. According to MASHABLE, Friendthem lets users create geo-faces so that you can become offline in certain places such as a bar or at a conference. If in case you forget a face, another cool ‘Friendthem Later’ feature tells you exactly how and where you met that particular person in your life. Pretty cool, isn’t it?

STEVE-JOBS-COMIC-BOOK

Comic Craze: Steve Jobs next on the line!

Steve Jobs is going to become a comic star. Yes every other kid on the planet is going to know him now. The comic books publisher “Bluewater Productions” had already released earlier a comic book character based on Mark Zuckerberg. It sold out very quickly.

STEVE-JOBS-COMIC-BOOK

Now its Steve Jobs turn. Although the publisher didn’t give any superhero name to him, the book has been titled as “Steve Jobs: The co-founder of Apple”. It is a 32 page comic book unlike Mark Zuckerberg’s lengthy 48 page comic book, this book will definitely catch millions of eyes.

MARK-ZUCKERBERG-COMIC-BOOK

The book consists of a biography of the legend in a comical illustration. According to Bluewater Productions President Darren Davis:

“His innovations command front page news, speculation on his health affects the stock market. Not bad for a college dropout, I’m surprised it took us this long to publish a proper, balanced biography of him.”

Perhaps this Stevey comic craze has hit every other comic book publisher. A similar biography of Steve Jobs is all set to be published by yet another technik, CNN king-pin and also a former TIME whiz “Walter Isaacson” called as iSteve: The Book of Jobs which is supposed to release on March 6,2012. But that’s a bit late in queue.

The book by Bluewater Publications is already available for pre-order at Amazon and is tagged at just $3.99. Grab your copy right now. Other famous titles published by Bluewater Productions include “Sarah Palin”, “Adam West”, “Angelina Jolie” and also the famous popstar “Lady Gaga”.

Apple goes berserk! iOS5, Mac OSX Lion and iCloud at WWDC

Apple is launching its iOS 5 mobile operating system, MAC OS X Lion desktop operating system and also its iCloud service: Apple’s very own Cloud service to be held at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco, this June 6.

wwdc-2011

According to engadget, the team will be focused on its latest software enhancements and also its release of the newest, MAC OS X Lion operating system. This is gonna be a big day because some folks at Buzzle are already regard this as a clash between Apple and the Android developers since Google already launched its latest Android OS the “Ice Cream Sandwich” just this month. The release will be done by Steve Jobs himself along with other executives.

ios5-2011

The launch of iOS 5 is creating a major buzz for the Apple users. Some customers are already creating a wishlist of what improvements they would like to add in the new release. If you want to know what other people are thinking, browse through this gallery as BusinessInsider brings it to you. Regarding the iOS 5 features, this time it will introduce voice control to type the text automatically and widgets too possibly to compete with the Android, as we have seen Android OS is full of widgets. Of course, there will be integration of NFC chips and Cloud computing (Google wallet and iCloud respectively). GET IT? Other than these there’s a fully redone user interface and addition of an updated camera app (iPhone 4S will have a 8-megapixel camera), thats why!

Mac_OS_X_Lion-2011

Coming to MAC OS X Lion, this is going to be a major concern at the WWDC this time. According to CNET, the poor MAC OSX Snow Leopard was already being hit by a rogue antivirus causing a MAC malware scare so you will possibly see the release of a software update for SL. Moving on, there is a pretty nice featurelist we are going to see in Lion this time, some of them being, introduction of Wi-Fi Direct, wireless iTunes sync capability, Finder,Mail,AirDrop and iCal improvements.

icloud-2011

iCloud service being new one on the line, we have not been able to gather much news about it but our reporters at CNET say that Apple will integrate “music features” with the Cloud support. Already deals have been made with the music giants such as EMI Music, Warner Music and SONY Music.

Here is an official PRESS RELEASE made by Apple.
