Report: No iPhone 5 at Apple’s Summer Conference

Sorry Apple fans we wont be having insights of iPhone 5 this time in the Annual Software Developers Conference by Apple, in-fact this year we will have conference against software news.

As per the previous trend we have seen, every year at conference we have visions of the next coming iPhone where as this time the tradition is not being followed.

The Annual Software Developers Conference will held in San Fransisco on June 6th. It will be against the further plans and forecasts for the iOS and Mac OS. Any developers who are involved in the developments for the iOS or Mac OS should be very much eager to count in days till June 6.

It has always been a very successful conference and we expect the same this time too.

A Fence Made from Road Signs

Another creativity found and highlighted by Instructables is the Fence which was created by hundreds of Road Signs. I was impressed with the idea they have brought in and how beautifully they have designed the creation.

Rather than old signs being wasted, it was a big step to re-use the items in a productive and constructive way. You all know how hard the material of the road signs are so therefore you could imagine the protectiveness of the Fence.

It was constructed by the students of Youthbuild adjacent to their campus.The local county and state highway engineering offices donated old road signs, which we then cut, sanded, filed, and drilled to create pickets.

Have a look how beautifully the are designed with perfections.

Alert - Acid Rain SMS is Just a Hoax

If you are mobile phone user, then there are good chances that you must have received multiple SMSes regarding Acid Rain, such as:

"A nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan, exploded at 4.30am today. If it rains tomorrow or later, don’t go outside. If you are outside, be sure that you have rain protectors. It’s acid rain. Don’t let it touch you. You may burn your skin, lose your hair or have cancer. Please pass, stay safe and remind everyone you know."

So what this Acid Rain and the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan has to do with forward messages in Pakistan?

It might look a nonsense to you, but the fact is that these forwarded messages were spread in Malaysia and Philippines and somehow one of such message hit Pakistan to make its way to every mobile subscriber in the country.

Be Informed:

There is no such thing known as Acid Rain, and this is not happening anywhere, at least in Pakistan. In fact, authorities in Philippines and Malaysia have actually officially clarified that these chain messages are just a hoax and nothing more.

Forwarding an SMS (Containing Information) is a SIN

Propakistani have written in past that forwarding an SMS without verification is a SIN as per various Islamic scholars.

They say that forwarding an SMS (which contains information) without verification is just like you are lying to the recipient.

Sending forward jokes/quotations is fine.

Who Gets Benefited of these SMS Chains:

Just in case if you don’t know, these forward messages are usually spread by those VAS providers who develop and then drive these messages into masses.

So these companies must be aware of the fact that they are doing an illegal activity by spreading the fake/altered information.

We know that our authorities are not capable enough of capping all these fraudulent people, but as an individual we can can play our role by not forwarding messages without verification.


If there is an emergency, or something which is worth communicating, your loved ones are going to call you. They won’t spread such severe information (such as Acid Rain) as an SMS.

Thanks to Samz for tipping us on this. - via Propakistani

iPad 2 Announcement - Features, Images & Video

In the conference by Apple the New iPad which is known as iPad 2 has been introduced. A new birth in the Apple family and as usual it’s beautiful. We even have choices of Black or White and this time the “White iPad 2” will be available from the first date of launch whereas we are still finding iPhone 4 White.

Facetime on Black & White iPad 2
It's lighter in weight then the previous one (1.3 pounds from 1.5 pounds previous). It’s even thinner then the iPhone 4 which is 13.4 millimeters where as iPad 2 is 8.8 millimeters.  As what Steve Jobs said it’s the 3rd thinner.
Thinner iPad 2 - 3rd Thinner
The biggest feature is the "A5 Chip" introduced by Apple, It's a Dual Core Processor, up to 2x faster CPU and up to 9x faster graphics. It's the first dual core tablet in the market.

Front & Rear Camera on iPad 2

As predicted it's with dual camera, front VGA and features to take self snaps via Photo Booth App (which is by Apple with various filters). We have Facetime now in the iPad 2 which is just ideal by its size for Facetiming as said in the conference. The rear / back camera is 720 p capability standard which is again a big improvement to this new product.

Photo Booth on iPad 2

HDMI cable (US$39) mirrored video output upto 1080p, works with all apps, supports rotation, 10 hours battery time and charges your iPad while using.

A new Smartcover has also been introduced officially by Apple, which features to magnetically attach and folds down to support the iPad 2 to lift it up or stand while being kept somewhere, whereas in normal situation it protects the screen. It’s actually to remove the hectic of pouches, bags etc and still keep it awesome.
