iPad 3 Hype Begins

Today I’m going to be completely lazy and  just copy and paste a blog posting from  Alec Banks of HypeBeast.com – who got the information from Techcrunch.  I’m doing it because we had so much fun tracking the newest iPhone, I dont want you to miss out on the early hype on the new iPad 3.  I have lots of commercials to write tonight at my regular job But don’t want you to miss out on the early hype on the iPad 3!  Hope we get some even better news about it over the next few weeks. Basically, it says that the new iPad will have awesome graphics!  Here is the excerpt from Alec Banks of hypebeast.com:

Just as the Consumer Electronics Show was winding down in Las Vegas, Bloomberg has three people claiming they have intimate details about the Apple iPad 3. Among the “unconfirmed,” yet tangible rumors, is that it went into production this month with a launch coming in March. It will have a quad-core CPU (as opposed to the dual-core A5 found in iPad 2) as well as a “high-def” screen. The new display is capable of greater resolution than the current version, with more pixels on its screen than some high-definition televisions. The introduction of the new iPad will be Apple’s first major hardware release since the death of company co-founder Steve Jobs in October.

QR Codes vs Blippar

Well, a few weeks ago I was thinking what would be a great way to make a QR code look cooler? Mobi has some that are colorful, Macy’s put a Star around theirs, But these guys at Blippar have taken the concept to a whole new level. I received this tip from springwise.com then went to Google-Ize the word blippar and I found us this awesome video.

The video has some slow portions, but I’d advise staying patient through it until you at least see the Omega watch portion. What happens here is he puts the phone on a print ad for Omega and within seconds the man in the video has placed 3 or 4 different Omega watches on to his own wrist! Not real watches, but virtual watches and they do look like they are on his wrist. Blippar is Pretty happening. Congrats on the cool concept to all the folks who work over at blippar. I can’t wait until you get Nike as a client and I can wear all the Jordans I could ever imagine! I wont have to buy another pair of shoes ever again. I’ll be able to virtually wear whatever I want-whenever I want. Too cool!

iPhone 4S..No iPhone 5…yet

The news is all over the place, about an hour or so ago it was announced that Apple’s next phone will just be an upgraded iPhone4 and will be called an iPhone4S. I bet they saw the same video we showed here on advertising in Hawaii that had the iPhone 5 with the removable floating keyboard Ala’ CSI computers and the videos you could watch in mid-air. After watching that, if the phone I was about to release didn’t do some cool things like that, I suspect I’d just release an up grade too. And get to work on the real iPhone 5 that will hopefully blow our minds.

Bummer thought, lots of expectations for today’s big announcement.  But, if you don’t have a flip camera or don’t like to carry two things around with you, the new phone has a much better camera and video action.  Here are some of the highlights of the upgrades:

8 Mega-Pixel camera-up from 5 Mega-Pixels

Takes pictures in 1.1 seconds.  the Droid Bionic takes 3.7 seconds.

Better video quality in High Def at 1080p

and a couple other things that don’t much excite me since my iPhone 3GS stays on its charge for a long time and I don’t usually listen to music on it, still listen on my computer.

Here they are:  8 hours of talk time  and 40 hours to listen to music

Well, what do you think?  Maybe I’ll try to snag a cheap iPhone4, at least my camera will be better.  But overall, not a fun day in the electronic smart phone world.  Some guy on some blog said it probably best:  “Dont give me a letter, I want an Integer” then I’m excited.  Pretty sure he was on the Los Angeles Times blog, some pretty good comments on there!
