4 Reasons Why the Verizon iPhone Won’t Kill AT&T

On January 11th, Verizon announced that the iPhone will finally be coming to their network starting on February 10th. For many, this announcement excited many people who have been waiting for a Verizon iPhone since the beginning. However, with this announcement, many people have been saying AT&T will see a mass exodus of customers which could potentially hurt them financially.  While I am not fond of AT&T, I think this situation is being blown out of proportion and here’s why:

Size: AT&T is one of the largest cellular companies in the US. Not only that, but they also provide DSL, fiber and home phone services. So, it would take a lot to kill off such a large provider. Just because AT&T will no longer be an exclusive iPhone carrier doesn’t mean other popular phones won’t be on the network. For instance, Android phones are starting to appear on the network. Along with that, AT&T still has a decent relationship with RIM’s Blackberry and Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.

What Features Will The Next iPad Have?

It has been almost 5 months since the first iPad has come out and people are already wondering what the next iPad should have. Since the release of the iPhone 4, people have found some features on the phone that should be on the 2nd generation iPad. For example, people are really hoping to see a retina display on the next iPad. After using the iPhone 4 for over a month now, I couldn’t agree more. The retina display is absolutely stunning and the thought of having it on a 9.7 inch display would be even better.

That brings me to another point: screen size. People are saying that they think the next iPad should have a smaller screen. I am going to have to disagree there. After using the iPad for a little while, I don’t think I would want anything much smaller. What would be really nice is if they could somehow reduce the weight of it. Another big request is either a front facing camera, back facing camera or both. At first, I didn’t really see a need for it, but after using the iPhone 4 and its FaceTime feature, I really see an advantage to having some kind of FaceTime feature on the iPad.

Safari 5: What’s New?

On Monday, Apple brought Christmas to geeks early this year by announcing the iPhone 4. However, we got a small present a few hours after the WWDC 2010 Keynote when Apple officially announced the 5th version of their Safari browser. Now, if you are an avid Safari user, you should definitely upgrade to the latest version. If you have drifted away from Safari, this update is definitely worth the time to try out.

One of the first things I noticed about Safari 5 is that is much more snappy than the previous version. Another thumbs up for a lot of people is that it brings back the loading bar rather than having that grey load progress indicator in the corner of the address bar. On top of that, Bookmarks and Top Sites work so much more smoothly than they did in Safari 4. For those of you that are developers out there, you will probably enjoy that HTML5 and CSS3 support has dramatically gotten better since Safari 4 with new features such as Geolocation and AJAX History. Another big leap is finally allowing extensions! Developers can join now the new Safari Developer Program for absolutely free and start making some awesome extensions.
