Remains of the Day: White iPhone off the starboard bow!
A sign in an Apple Store is the latest bearing on the quest for the legendary white iPhone 4, an iPhone app is a life-saver, and Cupertino brings aboard talent for the latest addition to its campus. The remainders for Monday, December 6, 2010 are here to kick off the week.
Apple confirms white iPhone 4 for ‘Spring 2011’ (9 to 5 Mac)
Quick, somebody call Captain Ahab: we’ve got a sighting of the white iPhone 4! The oft-delayed unicorn is apparently going to be available in Spring 2011, according to a supposed display at an Apple Store. Just in time for my plan to build a remote island fortress entirely out of white iPhones. Muahahahahaha!
High school coach saves player’s life with $1.99 iPhone app (Business Insider)
How to save a life? No, I’m not talking about the song. Eric Cooper, basketball coach at La Verne Lutheran School, was able to perform CPR on player Xavier Jones, who collapsed during practice on November 22. The rescue came thanks, in part, to a $2 CPR app Cooper had downloaded the day before. Granted, Cooper had also been previously trained in CPR, so we suggest you not go to extremes to field test the app on your own.
Apple recently purchased a tract of land that formerly belonged to HP in order to expand its Cupertino campus. Now, noted British architect Norman Foster is rumored to be Apple’s choice for head of operations of the project, which will reportedly involve green technologies and an underground tunnel system. Granted, one look at the guy’s wardrobe and we can tell why Steve picked him.
