Rumours are circulating that Apple is planning a revival of the Newton handheld (which still kick Windows PocketPC) in a similar form factor to the iPhone. With a large high-res multitouch screen and useful features like copy & paste that the iPhone lacks, it should be more like a PDA. Obviously though, all of the “information” is based on speculation. But if it’s true it means Apple will then have MP3 players, laptops, desktops, PDAs, phones, servers and software in their line-up.

Also, on the mobishop project, I’ve been looking at the MacOS X Leopard tour videos and screenshots and integrating those shiny ideas with my interface. It should help to make the experience more familiar for Mac users.

    Nice idea with keeping the interface familiar. I think i will snake the idea ;-) (sorry for this next part)… so in mobishop you can touch up the photos as you take them on the phone? (i know i know – i should know the answer to this question)… anyway, as cool as that is, are you using the accelerometer too to add to the functions within mobishop?

    Yeah, basically you can edit photos on your iPhone that were captured by your camera, or synced from your computer. I’m trying to capture the most useful features from iPhoto and Picasa (and a few extras from Photoshop). That needs a more detailed evaluation though. I’m kind of skipping ahead of myself.

    As for the accelerometer, the only “feature” of it I was planning to use was the rotation. I had some silly ideas about flicking it to undo, but I don’t think it would be too feasible (i.e. bumps on trains, cars etc).

    Au Revoir!
