Accessories that allow us to make panoramic photos using their own devices are not new but Pixeet now brings a new way to perform this function. Pixeet developed a special case for iPhone 4 which allows attaching a device that allows us to make panoramic photos using the iPhone terminal 4. Case for iPhone 4 is simple, like any other but it attaches the device that allows recording panoramic pictures using magnets so you must be a little careful with it when you take pictures.

Of course, the case comes with a special application that connects pictures taken using iOS Wide angle lens for video but unfortunately there is no option to do the same. Recorded pictures can be shared on any of the existing social networks but can also be saved in your computer. To see pictures in widescreen format you should upload the site of the Pixeet offering free hosting for 50 photo for each month. Case of the Pixeet costs only 50 $, an affordable price for quality of the product offered.

What is the biggest problem of the producers with such kind of accessories? Apple seems interested to implement similar features in iOS 5 and iPhone 5. Pixeet said about that: “our pocket sized fisheye lens can be carried everywhere! Instantly and remove the lens mount on your iPhone with our patented magnetic system. Spherical Panoramas, pictures, videos.”

Apple is working on implementation in iOS 5 of a new feature voice control, called Assistant. The new feature was discovered by those from 9 to 5 Mac, with a screenshot provided by a “reliable source”. Assistant is not yet in the current development version of iOS beta 5, so it is likely to be exclusively feature for the iPhone 5. (Just as Voice Control was exclusive for 3GS.)

The leak suggests that in addition to text conversion in speech and ordering the basic functions of the iPhone, the new program also will integrate the technology used in Siri application that Apple has purchased recently. Siri is a free application that uses data stored on your device, such as location, calendar events and many others to find the best way to fulfill your request.

For example, if you say “Find me two tickets to the Transformers movie tonight”, Assistant will find available tickets to a location nearest for you. In addition, the application will have the ability to respond to the user.

According to sources, the feature is still in the process of development and may not be ready in time for launch the next generation of iPhone. May be one of the many programs that Apple is testing. We will wait and see.

So far only rumors are circulating about the third generation of iPad. It seems that the PC tablet will come with a Retina Display, which was initially told that the iPad 2 will have this type of screen and it will have dimensions slightly smaller than previous generations.

Specialists are quite skeptical about the launch of the new product so fast. Basically, iPad 2 was launched in March and will take on average six months of state stores and then comes the next generation.

Moreover, if we think that any product launch is very expensive for the company because of promotion activities and that the public may be tempted to wait six months to buy the third generation of iPad, Apple could have a problem.

According to other sources, the iPad is a upgrade from its predecessor and not a new generation of tablet PC, which seems more reasonable in terms of both cost and in terms of risks assumed by the company.

It remains to be seen how much truth is in these speculations. Apple recently applied with success to maintain public interest through small rumors about its intentions. If that is the key to success we will certainly see the numbers.
