Facetime on the new iPad and Mac?

BY THE APPLE GIRLIf you are holding off on buying an iPad just yet, here’s some good news for you! Apple might be releasing the new version of the iPad with a front facing camera in the first quarter of 2011. Another rumor is that Apple is getting ready to ship Face Time version of iChat with which you could make Face Time calls from any Mac. FaceTime might be the next thing in vogue; GoogleChic, unless you buy an Apple device, you are going to be left behind with your wannabe “Face Time” flimsy video chat software on your Android!Front facing cameras on any Android device including your most favorite Samsung Galaxy Tab might only give you the hardware to do video calls. But what you really miss is the beautifully integrated Face time software that Apple has done so well.

Steve Jobs was critiqued when he claimed back in June that Apple would ship tens of millions of Face Time devices this calendar year.If FaceTime comes to all Apple devices, Steve Jobs might be keeping his word. A writer at Fortune has added up all the numbers and turns out Apple might have roughly 48 million Face Time devices in the market by the end of this year. Albeit, Face Time is currently allowed only on Wi-Fi, with 48 million Face Time devices, Apple is just unlocking the video telephony potential.

Girls, go get some make up on. Your next FaceTime call might be any minute now!

BY THE GOOGLE CHICIf the hardware allows for a front facing camera, do you really think there’s no software to go with that? Of course not! Qik is a video chatting application that allows for you to video chat to your heart’s content. In addition, it’s a video sharing software app, you can upload videos to Qik and share them with your friends. Obviously, you can do this all over 3G 🙂Don’t be jealous AppleGirl because you can’t Facetime over 3G. There’s an alternative solution for you. You can Fring and video chat with me over 3G. However, as you will see in the demo below you may have some issues on your end 😉

Don’t worry AppleGirl, I’ll managed to borrow an iPhone somehow. I’ll keep quiet for now but more to come later 😉

P.S If it was a Google event, it would be open to ALL, none of this Apple device only BS.

iMobile vs Android Car


GoogleChic, how do you like the sound of GM + Google? Do I see you squirming at the sound of it? 🙂  There are rumors flying around that GM is teaming up with Google to use Android as the in-car computer system. I can imagine your sweet Samsung Galaxy S Tab stuck on the backseat of a giant a$$ truck!

Now imagine a super classy Mercedes fitted with the best of the iGadgets. Brabus has turned the dream car into reality by converting a Mercedes S600 into an Apple Mobile. Two iPads on the rear seats, controlling the car’s multimedia and command system, an iPod touch, three displays and a Mac mini among other iDevices is part of the iBusiness package.  Not to mention that the car sprints from 0 to 62 mph in 4 sec. GM, beat that!

Isn’t this a “gizmocar dream” come true?  Someone pinch me! 😀


AppleGirl is right about one thing, I am squirming at the sound of GM + Google because I would never buy a GM no matter how cool the Android features could potentially be. Moving past the whole GM car ordeal, being able to potentially use your phone to lock/unlock, start/stop your car is pretty nifty!

Personally, if I was going to Brabus to sup up my Mercedes, I would just ask for the car to be fitted with Android devices. For the amount money that you’ll be spending I”m pretty sure they don’t have a problem throwing in the devices of your choice 😉
