The Swivl is like having your own personal cameraman!

Just stick your iPhone, Android or camera in the stand, and it’ll follow your every move via a sensor that you wear!

Shoot videos of yourself or your friends without worrying about who’s going to hold the camera.

If you look at your iPhone when its face-down you’ll notice that the camera and the flash face “up.” Fortunately, Apple thought through how to use the flash to alert the user when a message has been received. You’ll find this brilliant feature under Settings > General > Accessibility. Scroll down to “LED Flash for Alerts” and turn it “on.” The camera flash will now blink when a message comes through but no where near as bright as when the flash is used while taking a photo.

Airbag - Caw. 

“Perhaps the most ‘pro of tips’ for the iPhone.”

Steve Jobs and the Tale of the Upside Down Apple Logo

thenextweb:

When you visit a coffee shop or a college campus, the glowing Apple logo on the back of a MacBook appears like it has been that way forever. This wasn’t the case.

Jobs had threatened “thermonuclear war” on Google for copying elements of the iPhone, Isaacson wrote, but put aside his animosity over Android to counsel the young CEO. Page offers a different version of those events. He says that Jobs reached out to him, not the other way around, and that when they met, in the last months of Jobs’s life, the Apple founder offered useful insights into how to run a company. Page believes that Jobs’s fury toward Google was not entirely genuine and was “actually for show.”
