Pretty sick… the app can look at a picture you select on your phone, and import the color swatch from it to select shoe designs that match. A great utility for getting a pair of shoes that perfectly match your new G-Shock/hoodie/girlfriend’s purse/etc. Download it here for free.
Apple does it again. Today they announced their new iPod Nano 5G. Biggity biggity ballin. Same dope nano you’re used to except NOW it’s got a sweet little camera and mic on the back. It’s like the ultimate little gadget. Reasonably priced at 150 for the 8 gig… but who’s going to buy that one when you can get twice the memory (16 gig) for 30 bucks more? You can buy them in any color here.
We normally don’t like to perpetuate gadget-hype rumors and whatnot, but I feel like this could be the exception to the rule. According to the Financial Times and Gizmodo, Apple’s been working with some fools on some collabo features, and such work indicates that their new tablet (basically a 10 inch iPod touch) will be released in the near future — they’re saying September, because that’s when the new iPods are droppin too apparently. Most of the new tiny little PC laptops (netbooks) have been retailing at like 5 hundo or less. If this new Apple one is under 500 bucks as well, you better bet yours truly is coppin one. Here’s one thing I don’t know about though: it’s going to run iPhone OS… meaning it’s basically going to function like a huge iPod touch. Now, if this is the case, then I wouldn’t be able to use word processing or excel which would severely limit this baby’s productivity. The OS would also make it difficult (or impossible) for me to post shit on Sneakhype, and since I already have a miniature one of these tablet things (the iPhone), it would essentially be pointless for me to get one. … More →
As all real Sneakhypers know, the word “Sneakhype” is used not only as a noun, but also as an adjective. (e.g. dem new Jordan fours are definitely Sneakhype). Well this custom Stealth MacBook Pro is so so… so Sneakhype. Blacked out matte finish all over… but the best part: the backlit keyboard — a soft blue glow. Check it out:
New iPod Shuffle is now available at all Apple retailers. It’s about half-the-size of the old Shuffle and now is the smallest music player in the world. It starts at only $79 and includes new spec’s like VoiceOver Tech which gives the Shuffle a voice(tells you what song is being played). Buy it here.
Rumors continue to circle that Apple will be releasing a Touchscreen notebook dubbed the “Netbook”, with a report from the Commercial Times. They say you can expect the Netbook in Quarter 3 of this year. Dope. Apple rumors happen all the time, so what makes this any different from the others? The information comes from Wintek, the company slated to provide the touch panels for the device, the netbook itself will be made by Quanta Computer. These are the same people who broke the news on the iPhone, so don’t be suprised if it comes true. Is this the design for the netbook? No, but it will be dope if it’s anything like this. More news in the near future. [gizmodo]
You can get custom stickers for your new mac keyboards for 30 bucks. Yet another dope idea from Your Daily Dose of Dopeness (yours truly), that can up your flyness in no time and for little cost. Buy the kit here. [yankodesign] Check out some more pics after this link:
This company called axiotron (probably about as geek as you can get right there) takes the new MacBook Pro‘s and mods them into finger/pen touchscreen little laptops. You’d probably be the coolest person you know if you got one of these. They’re 5 grand. [uncrate] A closer look and purchase link after the jump.
Macworld 09 is hurr and Apple has pushed the Pro’s screen to 17 inches, its price to $2799, and thrown in a high-capacity battery and it looks amazing. Available late this month, it’s just under an inch thick, weighs in at 6.6 pounds, and is claimed to be the “thinnest and lightest” 17″ notebook on the market. Apple says it’s the longest lasting MacBook battery ever—it’s a non-removable lithium polymer battery with “three times” the industry standard lifecycle, courtesy of “adaptive charging.” How long does it last? 7 hours with discrete graphics, 8 hours with integrated graphics. That’s 3 more hours than the previous-gen 17″ MBP. And it’ll cycle through that at least 1000 times with minimal wear. In less technical terms Its da shizzit.[via gizmodo]
