If the name of iPhone 4S has not convinced you that would be connected with a tribute of Apple to Steve Jobs maybe the launch of iPad 3 on February 24, when Steve Jobs would have celebrated his birthday, would give you to understand that Apple did not forget his famous founder.

Of course it’s just a rumor now that probably was born in the mind of a journalist from Taiwan but that does not mean that this rumour can not be true. Last year iPad 2 was announced on 2 March, a week after the Steve Jobs birthday so, would not be so unusual that this year things happen a little faster, all in the memory of the legendary CEO.

Because it is a new gadget, it is taking time for makers in the supply chain to raise their yield rates. The sources said all OEM and ODM makers have exercised great caution in ensuring the smooth operations of their production lines.

Even if iPad 3 will not be announced then, we see presented to a conference in early Apple in March. iPad 3 could have Retina Display, could be thinner and may come equipped with a quad-core but yet all this information are simple rumors so take them with a large dose of pessimism.

You all know that Steve Jobs said that Android OS is a faithful copy of the iOS, which apparently would be true if we can believe the way that is look the operating system. The whole theory is based on the fact that the Android “father”, Andy Rubin, worked at Apple in the ’90s, when engineers developed the first technology company in Cupertino of iOS/iPhone.

Steve Jobs says that Andy Rubin stole the ideas from Apple and launched Android bought by Google in 2005 but now come Eric Schmidt and says that Android’s development began before the iPhone.

It should be noted at the outset of the two products nuance that speaks Schmidt: Android and iPhone. Apple has not said what first started working on iPhone or iOS technologies but I think that iOS it was made ​​before the iPhone.

Even so, it seems that Android was first developed with physical buttons phones going but after launching the iPhone has been redesigned to work on touch screens. Steve Jobs said in his biography that he would spend the last penny out of Apple for Android’s market and now Apple has had some successful attempts to do this but running Android OS products.

For years is rumored that Apple will launch a TV and behold, before the death of Steve Jobs seems to be ‘read’ the secret of building such a product. The information comes from the biography written of course by Walter Isaacson where Steve Jobs said that he knew how to build a HDTV to be successful on the market.

Jobs want to do a simple and elegant HDTV that would have an intuitive interface and that of course would be connected to all iDevice and Mac where a user could take even content.

He very much wanted to do for television sets what he had done for computers, music players, and phones: make them simple and elegant,” Isaacson wrote. Isaacson continued: “‘I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,’ he told me.

As he presents the TV, it’s a product that could connect to iTunes, could be controlled on an iDevice that could run even multumedia content. Honestly I do not know how successful such Apple TV would give there are so many brands on the market.

If they launch a new and innovative product that really would have a very simple and elegant interface that would work in any home, not just the iDevice’s but it would be cheaper then I think they might have greater success in the global marketplace.

Well all the rumors about the iPhone 5 might come true next year when Apple might unveil his latest creation the whole world Steve Jobs.

It seems that the future of the terminal model could be the last iPhone that Steve Jobs would have worked closely and that you would have close to completion, the device having already established the design. The information coming from CNET quoting a U.S. analyst but also a source inside Apple who says iPhone 5 will be a major change to the iPhone 4/4S.

Interestingly, Steve Jobs was not involved in development of iPhone 4S but directly in the iPhone 5 next year so theoretically we expect a really great device. For now it talks about a design that would bring a thinner iPhone and a larger screen but nothing more and they know this information anyway this summer.

By next fall, and Apple can change many iPhone 4S seems to be the best selling iPhone ever released so will be interesting to see how Apple will prepare the upcoming year and what kind of device you out to convince even more iPhone owners to to upgrade.

At WWDC 2011 Steve Jobs has speak about the new data center of Apple’s built in North Carolina, the data center infrastructure that is behind iCloud. In 2009, Apple has promised to invest about $ 1 billion in this new data center and so far has invested three quarters of that amount according to Asymco.

750 million dollars were distributed only for building the construction and fitting the location, not including the amount and cost of purchasing servers or Azure platform that apparently would be the basis for icloud.  Unfortunately, even a few days ago we had a demonstration of how the Cupertino company’s servers can handle downloading some 5 million copies of iOS and SHSH registration for iTunes.

What this level of spending implies is that iCloud (and Siri and iTunes) are expensive. They may seem ephemeral and even trivial as services, but they require a staggering commitment few can make. Apple made that commitment and they made it early on, before the first quarter billion users were even on the horizon.

Unfortunately the demonstration gave us to understand that Apple can not yet handle with the huge traffic without a problem and with millions of users that woke up with various errors displayed by iTunes during the update. Even by investing a huge amount of money in a modern datacenter, at Apple still exists a place for improvement of existing infrastructure.
