WWDC dates announced! Details here!

wwdc14-home-branding (1)

 

 

Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference dates have been announced!

 

This year the conference will run from June 2nd through to June 4th, and developers have had the opportunity to apply for random ticket selection up until today- a different approach to other years.

 

Here is the run down from Apple themselves:

 

 

 

wwdc14-home-introduction

 

 

 

So, what can we expect?

 

You should definitely expect to hear Tim Cook making announcements regarding the iPhone 6 and iOS 8 and outlining their release dates and specs. Apple TV will most likely be getting an upgrade, however an actual Apple TV will most likely not be making an appearance.

 

There is a chance an iWatch will be announced, although analysts and basically everyone in the tech world go back and forth on this one. We think there is a 72.5% chance, but we’re not betting the farm.

 

We’ll also get pretty video’s played at 9:42 am, inspirational speeches, and special appearances by Craig Federighi and Jony Ive!

 

Are you excited?? Cos WE ARE!

Tech Tip Of The Day- youtube edition

 

youtube

 

YouTube is awesome, because that’s where we get Britney Spears best-of compilations and Tech N9ne lyrics for our flow parties, but it’s also got quite some surprising and secret easter eggs that not many people know about.

 

The end.

 

Just kidding! Here’s  list of what we think are the best Easter Eggs on YouTube.

 

*Protuber is a free YouTube app on the iPhone which allows you to multitask while playing a video.

 

*If you pause a video on YouTube and type the numbers ’1980′ you will get missiles firing at your video, and the ability to fight back.

 

 

reddit

 

 

* Pause a video on YouTube, then hold down the left arrow key for 2-3 seconds. Whilst holding down that key, press the up arrow. BAM! YOU’RE PLAYING SNAKE!

 

 

play.google

 

 

*Right click on any YouTube video and you can scroll down to the ‘Stats For Nerds’ option. Click on it and you get a rundown of statistics of the video you’re watching, including dimensions, frames and volume percentage.

 

 

newgrounds

 

 

*Type the word ‘repeat’ after youtube in the URL – for example: https://www.youtuberepeat.com/watch?v=pt8VYOfr8To. This will let you play the video on repeat!

 

Finally, don’t forget to check out www.bestofyoutube.com to get your weekly dose of YouTube awesomness.

iPhone Tip Of The Day

 

zazzle

 

 

To celebrate being a month late for National Grammar Day, we’ve decided to give you guys some iPhone keyboard grammar tips! Are we all ready for some exciting keyboard shortcuts? Huh? Huh?  I think we heard a yes? Maybe?

 

Alrighty, lets start off with some dashes, cos they’re awesome, obviously. Hold down the Dash button to get a selection of dashes, including the lovely en dash and the slightly less lovely in our opinion em dash.

 

Hold down the slash to get a reverse slash, that’s an easy one.

 

Hold down the dollar sign to get the Pound, Cent, Euro, Yen or South Korean Won symbols

 

 

rtrtr

 

 

Hold down the ‘&’ symbol (Ampersand for those playing at home) and you’l get a § - a typographical character used mainly to refer to a particular section of a document, such as a legal code. It is also called “double S”, “sectional symbol”, and our favorite, ”hurricane”. Obviously.

 

Hold down the period to get three dots, or Ellipsis. Hold down the apostrophe button to get both types of apostrophes and quotation marks.

 

Hold down the question mark to get an upside down question mark.

 

 

emdashes

 

 

Hold down the exclamation mark to get an upside down exclamation mark¡ (See what we did there….)

 

Happy one month past National Grammar Day!

iPhone Tip Of The Day

 

 

 

huffingtonpost.ca

 

 

You guys know when you’re super excited/angry/drunk/revengy and you decide to send a message to someone?  And then you get a moment of clarity and realize that telling your boss that you hate the way he wears his stupid pretentious ties is not the best career move? Or telling your friend that she’s a really mean jerk might not be the best thing to do?

 

 

shakesville

 

 

Precisely perfect for these moments is the undo typing function, because pressing delete over and over might take too long and the drunky revengy you might come back!

 

So, shake your phone, man, just shake your phone! An “Undo Typing” box will come up –  hit it like it’s a 1990′s dancefloor!

 

 

nytimes

 

 

 

If you do change your mind after you’ve hit Undo, shake your phone again for a handy “Redo Typing” box.

 

So now you can save telling people how you really think when you’re angry/drunk/revengy for REAL life! Hooray!

April fools day Prank ideas from iPhone Antidote!

 

It’s almost here! The 4th most glorious day of the year that’s not a real holiday but is still an awesome day!

 

Tomorrow is April Fools Day!

 

happyholidays2014

 

 

Tomorrow also represents Apple’s 38th anniversary, with their partnership having officially been founded on this day in 1976 by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. So there’s another reason to celebrate! There’s also often App and iDevice pranks that tech companies pull, so we’re looking forward to that! As long as their not lame, cos that’ll just be…lame. 

 

So whadda YOU gonna do for April Fools Day Pranky McPranksters? Cos we’re cool like that, here’s some ideas specifically designed for your friend’s iDevices and Macs!

 

* Replace the shortcuts on their iPhones to whichever words you may find hilarious. Like poo. Or Strippers.

 

 

gizmodo

 

 

*Flip their computer screens for some excellently frustrating bafflement! Open System Preferences, click Display while simultaneously holding down Command + Option. A new menu called Rotation should appear, and you can flip the display and save it or undo.

 

 

wikihow

 

 

*Set a screenshot of their homescreen as wallpaper, and then move around the actual apps so it seems as if nothing is working when really YOU’RE CLICKING ON NOTHING, MAN! NOTHING! BAHAHAHA

 

*Turn your friends iPhone App icons into baby kittens! Well, not really, but it LOOKS like it, which is almost as fun. Go to www.iphoneceptions.com on their phone, and follow the instructions listed there.

 

 

news.com

 

 

 

*Download the Nicholas Cage chrome extension that makes every image on any website actually be a picture of Nicholas Cage. Brilliant.

 

 

google

 

 

 

Other ideas not specific to tech include:

 

*Hire a smoke machine, lock your room-mate in his room with the machine right next to his door at 4:35am.

 

*Mix Soy sauce and sprite together for a surprisingly disgusting diet coke.

 

*Put toothpaste in their Oreos

 

*Paint their soap with clear nail varnish

 

*Finally, our favorite, put tabasco sauce into their sleeping mouths, then give them vodka to douse their burning lips.

iPhone Tip Of The Day

Want all your friends to know where you are or where you will be because it’s either somewhere awesome (pub, beach, puppy park, Thailand) or somewhere awesomely crappy ( Dentist, Jail, Nebraska)?

 

In Maps, drop a pin on the location you want to share. Tap the pin and select Share, choosing fromAirDrop, Messages, Mail, Twitter, or Facebook.

 

For example: iPhoneAntidote is totally sipping cocktails in at the Bellagio Pool bar, celebrating our $100,000 craps win. See?

Today we’re learning about Passcodes! Yay!

 

Everyone who doesn’t use them, you get the day off! Go play! We said PLAY! 

 

Ok. Now for the rest of you- did you know that you can use letters for your passcode as well as numbers?

 

1. Go to Settings > General > Passcode.
2. Turn off the setting that says “Simple Passcode.”

3. A screen will appear asking you to change your passcode, with a full QWERTY keyboard below. The next time you unlock your phone, the keyboard will appear instead of just the number pad.

And did you know that you can ask Siri to create and provide you with a random passcode OR password?

Apple Fact Of The Day

 

Look closely next time you see an Apple Ad or press shot, and  you’ll find that the time is always set to 9:41A.M. or 9:42 A.M.

 

Why?

 

Because all Apple events start at 9 a.m.

 

 

phonearena

 

 

“We design the keynotes so that the big reveal of the product happens around 40 minutes into the presentation,” former Apple executive Scott Forstall has said. ”When the big image of the product appears on screen, we want the time shown to be close to the actual time on the audience’s watches. But we know we won’t hit 40 minutes exactly.”

 

Forstall’s exacting his team chose the 42-minute mark for the launch of the first iPhone in 2007. “It turned out we were pretty accurate with that estimate, so for the iPad we made it 41 minutes,” he said.

 

Plus, 42 is the answer to the meaning of life, so there’s that going for them too.
