Apple Rumour: iPhone Touch Sensitive Back

15/01/2010

A day or two ago Bloomberg published an article that featured a rumor that the next generation iPhone might conceivably include a touch sensitive back like Apple’s latest magic mouse.  This surely has to be some sort of joke?

Apple are experienced designers and whilst not everyone might like the new touch sensitive mouse design it is functional.  Would Apple really add a touch sensitive back to the phone?  In my opinion, only if they hadn’t really considered the fact that people use cases and transfers.

There are a great number of people who choose protective and/or stylish cases for their expensive iPhones and since they are so popular some people go a little further and add stickers or transfers to the back of the device to be able to identify it from another person’s phone.  Whilst in a similar way to screen protectors I think it should be possible to produce a compatible transfer that enables the touch to work, I still can’t help but think that cases might still result in a bit of an issue should Apple have opted for this feature.

Do you think Apple will do this?  If they do is it the right decision?  I guess that there’s a good chance we may get a clue in a few weeks time when Apple make some announcements on the 26th January.

The Google Earth Compass

03/12/2009

Polar Spin

If you’ve used Google Earth on the iPhone or iPod Touch have you ever visited one of the poles?  If you do be sure to check out the compass in the top right corner of the screen.  If for example you zoom in on a point roughly 90°N & 135°W you will see the compass rotate and spin freely.

Obviously the Google Earth compass is not magnetic but I thought it was interesting to note this curious feature and that it is not repeated on the Windows desktop application.
